“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!

Hello, my name is Emily Carranza. I am currently a senior at Quinnipiac University. I have been walking dogs since I was very young and have trained dogs for many years now. I absolutely love and enjoy getting some exercise in while doing something I love (walking dogs). I will always be attentive and caring of your pups when I take them for walks. I can ensure you that your dog is safe with me and will most likely get spoiled in the process! I promise that your dog will never be disappointed!

When I was young I always hanged around dogs I didn't know. I was short in height and the dogs were bigger than me but they all walked around with me with no leash even though I didn't know them they were my furry friends. If the dog wants to walk left I go left if the dog wants to make a right turn I will go right. I'm not here to discipline the dogs I'm here to let the dog have as much fun as possible and be as safe as possible. If the dog is lonely I will take away that loneliness but giving the dog plenty attention.

Dog Walking in Carmel Hamlet

The town of Carmel lies near New York’s eastern border with Connecticut, about 10 miles from Danbury. It is primarily a bedroom community, but also attracts visitors with its parks and lakes. And for those times when your fur-baby needs medical attention, Carmel is home to at least 4 veterinary hospitals, with more in nearby communities, standing by to help get your woofer up and chasing his tail again in no time! Arf!

There is a hike in Carmel that has become popular with families and dog-owners: The Mount Ninham Fire Tower. People regularly make the walk with their small children, even in strollers, because the trail is a wide gravel path. From the parking area on Mt Ninham Court, the trail is about 1.5 miles, and part of it is somewhat steep. But once you get to the top, the view is spectacular, and if you climb the tower, you can see the NYC skyline and much more! The climb up the tower is safe for kids and dogs because of the 3-ft chain link fence with railings on both sides of the stairway. Having said that, it’s important to keep Fido on his leash and stay close to the tots. The hike up to the tower is laced with wildflowers and many birds, and depending on the season, the leaves on the surrounding trees are more than just a source of cooling shade. It’s a great walk with dogs, relatively short and easy, whether you climb the tower or not! Woofderful!

Whatever your reason for being in Carmel, be sure to take advantage of some of the natural resources on offer! There’s something for everyone!

Featuring a playground and sports fields for the humans, this dog-friendly park also offers walking paths just made for relatively short walks with your fur-pup! Surrounded by woods, the trees offer respite from the mostly sun-drenched fields and lawns. The walk takes you back down the access road to the park where you’ll find a bench and a path back up and around the perimeter of the park for about 20 minutes. A nature trail with interactive markers is in progress, but the walk across the meadows and through the perimeter trees is a pawrfect way to spend some outdoor time with your furry bestie and family!

Featuring 3 overlook areas and 6 separate but interlocking dirt trails totaling 11 miles, how long you and your fur-buddy spend here is totally up to you! None of the trails is especially long, but you could easily cobble together a longer walk. The deeply wooded trek that edges near some ponds also feature a pawsome gorge and waterfall, Be sure to visit this one! It’s pawrrific!
