I have had dogs my entire life; I currently have 2 chocolate labs. I have been dog sitting for about 15 years around my neighborhood. My experience includes being a member of Kids for Paws, an organization that raised money to donate to animal shelters, military dogs, and guide dogs. I was also a volunteer at the SPCA while I was in college. I am great with everyone from high-energy puppies that love to play to older dogs who just love to snuggle. I can’t wait to meet your furry friends!

Dog Walking in West Hartland

The town West Hartland lies on the west banks of the Barkhamsted Reservoir in Connecticut. This quaint town borders Massachusetts on the north and is full of small-town charm. Today, it is a place for parades, picnics and carnivals. This dog-friendly town is happy to have one veterinary clinic in nearby Barkhamstead to provide preventative, dental, and orthopedic care for your pup, if needed. 

For some outdoor adventure, the Tunxis Trail system runs through the Tunxis Wildlife Management Area, located here. This 79-mile trail has a total of 18 different trails that meander through smooth and rough terrain, past gorgeous waterfalls, cliffs, wooded areas, rivers and lakes. It has something for every pup. Many areas are off-leash friendly, if your dog can follow voice commands! Some elevation change is inevitable, so plan accordingly. Return in winter for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing with your pup in tow. Features of Tunxis include colonial-era cemeteries, Indian caves and historic farmsteads.

Since this is a mostly rural area that offers no dog-friendly restaurants, be sure to be prepared and bring food and water with you while adventuring in this area.

Your pup will find West Hartland to be pawtastic!

East Hartland is a neighborhood of the town of Hartland, located east of West Hartland on the other side of the Barkhamsted Reservoir. To enjoy a relaxing time, head to Berg Field with its open area for Fifi to roam. For the more enthusiastic pup, try the Tunxix State Forest with activities like cross-country skiing in winter, and fishing, hiking and biking in the summer. Boating is also fun to do with your pup on the Howells Pond located here. Have you and Fifi tried letterboxing yet? Like geocaching, maybe she can sniff out the buried boxes! It is best to bring a picnic, water and cleanup bags to both pup-friendly places.
