“Four legged friends are the best!”

*Woof!* I'm Joshua and I just said 'Hello!' in dog speak. I've been told I'm a good human and often get wet nose kisses in recognition of a job well done. Dogs are simply amazing and I absolutely love them. I appreciate dogs of all sizes and breeds, but big playful pups are my favorite. When caring for your dog, you can rest assured that your fur baby is in the good hands of a trustworthy human who is as loving to your four-legged friend as you are. Your pup is always priority #1!

“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.

Dog Walking in Windsor Locks

Nestled on the banks of the Connecticut River, Windsor Locks is a small New England town with a rich history. In the early 19th century, a set of canal locks was created to help move boats along the waterways. These locks gave the town its name. Throughout the years, various mills and manufacturers have made Windsor Locks an industrious community. Pups living in this town can sure be proud of the local heritage.

There is definitely no shortage of parks in Windsor Locks, as 15 parks are scattered throughout the community. All welcome leashed pets, so clip on your pal’s lead and go discover which one is her favorite. Barbara Park may be small in size, but it has plenty of trees for sniffing. Southwest Family Park and Juniper Park both have sport courts and ball fields. Wander around the grassy fields and let your canine buddy socialize with the local athletes. Ahern Park is a nice little neighborhood field perfect for an afternoon stroll.

If your four legged pal prefers to walk on a trail, check out the Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail. This trail is a pupperific spot for a little doggy cardio. Your buddy will love breathing in some fresh air while enjoying the waterfront scenery.
