I have grown up around all kinds of animals especially dogs both big and small. I currently love and care for a sweet little chihuahua/doxen mix and hope to adopt a larger dog as well. I am very interested in using canine behavior and body language to understand how they feel so I provide the best care possible.

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!

Hello, I'm Jeremy! I'm currently a Graduate student at the UConn school of Social work.

I look forward to meeting you and your best friend :)

“I will treat your dog as one of my family!”

I grew up with dogs on our horse farm & pet sat through college. I was a vet tech, dog groomer & kennel manager for 8 years at a vet before starting my own business so I can do various medical treatments, meds, etc. I have 2 large dogs- Griffey a humane society pup and Monty a golden retriever. If you are going away for a weekend or vacation, my daughter, son and I all do house/pet sitting in your home. Keep your dog in the comfort of it's own home/schedule & not the stresses of a kennel.

The Farmington River Trail encompasses over 20 miles of trails that are paved and waiting for you to grab your leashed dog and explore. This is a historic and scenic area made better by the Rails-to-Trails system.

When you need a classic dog park, something built just for Fido, 30 miles isn't too far to drive. Cheshire Dog Park is calling Fido’s name! This park has agility equipment which can help your dog get in shape and show off his skills. There are two areas so that smaller pups can get away from the big boys and just run and play. Cleaning stations and shaded spots to sit are aplenty in this park! There are also watering holes for you and your dog to stay hydrated while you play together. This is the pawfect space to let your dog do what he does best!

Just 17 miles from West Torrington lies the Hoppers-Birge Pond Nature Preserve. If this park could be described in one word, it would be "open." This large, open meadow has many walking trails for you and Fido to explore. The official rules state that all dogs must remain on-leash on the trails and in the open areas, but locals note that many dog owners let their pups off-leash. Use your best judgment, and ensure your dog responds well to vocal commands. Fido can also play in the pond when he works up a good pant. Can you think of a better way to spend the day? We can't!
