Posted by Kim Casey on Wednesday, April 14th, 2021 at 11:13am.


Are you a dog lover living in or exploring through Connecticut? If so, you might want to take a moment and have a quick look below because I'll be highlighting some local dog lover's favorite places and adventures that are something to bark at! 

Let's start by looking at some fun, upcoming activities, and events for your furbaby: 

Custom Size Dog Coat: Virtual Sewing Class:

Dog Days at the Market:

The dog days of summer are the hot, sultry days of summer. We think it's much more fun to celebrate a man's (or woman's) best friend. Our Dog Days Market might be hot, but it will be filled with amazing dog-themed vendors, great food, and cool shade under our many trees. 

When: Friday, August 6th, 2021 - 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm 

Where: Bozrah Farmers Market 45 Bozrah St, Bozrah, CT 06334

Best Local CT Pet Shops:

It's so much fun treating our pups to freshly made treats, and I feel like I am always on the hunt for the next favorite top and dog goodies at my personal favorite, The Mystic Pet Shop. I love that I can go in the shop and now only be warmly greeted by the owners, but I can trust that any bag of food or treat I grab is going to be completely safe and healthy for my dog to eat. And, when I get carried away with lots of goodies, I can always rely on the owners to give me a helping hand to my car....without even asking! 

When I am strolling through the Borough, you can catch me stopping in the Pup Stop to grab one of those freshly made dog treats I mentioned earlier. You can find all sorts of fun dog decor and trinkets as well as a new raincoat! Then make sure to walk your dog across the street to the waterside and soak up the sun and the sites.
