“I’ll give your dog a kind and safe walk!”

Hello! My name is Kyle and I am an actor living in NYC. I joined Wag in hopes to spend more time outside (since most of my time is spent in a theater) while getting to walk dogs and save a bit more money. I grew up on a farm with animals of all shapes and sizes/dogs of my own, so my love and understanding of animals is vast! I hope I can help you make sure your dog gets the fresh air and exercise it needs!

Hi there, I’m Zuzu. Animals are my passion. I’ve grown up with a menagerie of pets, devoting my free time to learning about and caring for them. I’ve spent a lot of my time helping friends and family train their dogs, so I have experience working with dogs that are young, old, lazy, hyper, aggressive, or strong. I’m a confident dog handler, and I’d love to spend some time with your pups to help you out. Please contact if interested:)

Dog Walking in Washington

The town of Washington in Litchfield County, Connecticut is home to nearly 4,000 people, and it encompasses five villages. Each of these five villages is iconic in its own right and makes Washington a rich and diverse community. Many Washington residents have strong ties to New York City and divide their time between the two areas. Washington is a town that's also rich in natural resources, and some of these features include lakes, rivers, swamps, and ridgelines. Of course, that means there are all sorts of outdoor adventures that await you in Washington, and many of them are dog-friendly!

There isn't an off-leash park in Washington yet, but there are several other areas in and around town to explore with your dog on a leash. You and your pooch can head to Mount Tom State Park in Litchfield County for a day of hiking, fishing, boating, swimming, or picnicking. Mount Tom is one of the oldest parks in the state park system, and there are a variety of trails in the park you can hike with your dog if they're on a leash. The two of you can even hike to the top of a lookout that rewards you with stunning views. In addition to the hikes around Washington, there are dog parks where your dog can run and play free of a leash!
