dog-artWho We Are and What We Do

Now in our 15th year, Dog Days of West Hartford provides high quality, professional pet care.  We specialize in midday dog walking and anytime pet visits. If you’ve got a long work day and need to count on a regular walk for your dog, Dog Days is the answer. And, when you have additional plans in the evenings or on weekends, Dog Days can help with additional visit with one-on-one professional, pet care to make sure they get the attention they deserve. We will feed them, change their water and spend time visiting with them. For cats, we maintain and clean the cat box in addition to feeding and visiting with them.

In addition to dogs, we care for cats, birds, fish and other small domestic pets. We do what it takes to make sure your pets are well cared for and thoroughly exercised when you are busy with life’s other commitments.  We know most pets prefer staying in their own environments when you’re away, and we make sure that your pet stays happy and healthy.   We primarily service the town of West Hartford but we also extend our services to the West End of Hartford and at the town lines of Bloomfield and Farmington.

About the Owner

bobWhen I first purchased Dog Days in 2004, I wanted to provide great care for pets in West Hartford and excellent service for their owners.  And after all this time, that remains our primary focus. There has been one change, though. We’ve added some incredible people to our staff.  Without them, the wonderful hands-on care your pets receive would not be possible. They are dedicated pet professionals who love animals and enjoy helping people. They come from a variety of backgrounds, and that gives us a diverse set of skill sets to draw from. We are bonded, insured and members of the International Association of Canine Professionals.  We also have employees, not contractors so we carry the required workers' comp insurance. 

Dog Days of West Hartford has always played an active role in West Hartford’s pet community, participating in the annual pet parade and the Whole Foods-sponsored pet adoption drive.  We helped found CT Pet Pros, a non-profit organization made up of pet business owners who help each other deliver the best possible care for your pets.  We also support Our Companions Animal Sanctuary (, a Connecticut-based organization that promises to always do the right thing for animals, regardless of the challenge or cost.

Thank you for visiting our site, I look forward to hearing from you!
