Professional Dog Walking Services

Serving North Haven, Hamden, Wallingford & parts of New Haven CT

At You Lucky Dog!, our mission is simple. We want your dogs to love us as much as they love you. That means providing the same level of detailed attention, love, playfulness and high quality care that they receive from you every day.

Our number one priority is the health, safety and well-being of your dog when they are in our care. We also want your dog to be happy and will go out of our way to make it happen. Besides tending to their basic needs like food, water, walks and bathroom breaks, we believe in focusing on both physical and mental stimulation for your dog (while also giving them their daily dose of fun!).

Our unique approach helps your dog become happier and more relaxed while you’re away, which leads to you being a happy and relaxed owner. You can rest assured knowing that your dog is in loving hands. And with all of this extra love and attention it will receive, your dog will sure be one lucky dog!

Testimonials for our Dog Walking Service

Guinness playing with his stick during our visit

“We could not be happier with You Lucky Dog’s services. The daily notes and photos were definitely appreciated. I was always amazed how much Amy was able to do with him each day and do not know how she squeezed everything into 30 minutes. We are thankful that Amy took great care in watching our monster and doing a little extra each day.”
-Rick and Kirsten D.

Bella waiting for her treat after her afternoon walk

“Amy Hazelton is an absolute God-send for the anxious dog owner! My English bulldog Bella has many physical and behavioral issues ranging from dog aggression to severe food allergies. Not only did Amy handle her with professionalism and love, she managed to do it all with a smile. Her never-ending energy and spirit show in her incredible work: we practically had to drag Bella away from Amy when we went to pick her up, she did not want to leave! Amy is one of the few people I would trust with my dog. I highly recommend her for anyone looking to have a sitter or dog walker. She is truly a dog whisperer, and a great person, too!”

So what makes us different from everyone else?

By now you’ve probably done plenty of research on dog walkers in the North Haven, Wallingford, Hamden and New Haven areas of CT. You’ve most likely decided that regular dog walking is a great fit for your dog (if not please read our blog post on Why Should You Hire a Dog Walker?). Now you probably want to know why You Lucky Dog! is the best choice for your needs.

Here’s what separates us from others:

  1. We understand the responsibility of taking care of your dog on your property. That’s why our highest priorities are the security, health, safety and well-being of your dog. We take the necessary steps and precautions to make sure these qualities are maintained by being both responsible and reliable.
  2. We offer customized services to meet the individual needs of you and your dog. We realize that every dog and environment is different and may require specific instructions with each service. This is why we have such a high attention to detail. We want you and your dog to be comfortable with us.
  3. We have seen it all! Everyone has their own little quirks and behaviors. Some dogs refuse to walk on hardwood floors using area rugs as stepping stones. Some dogs have unique reactions to different commands and behaviors. Some owners treat their dogs like royalty, others like a pet. We have no problem with that! In fact we’ll do the same! We’re open and understanding when it comes to the unique nature of the owner/dog relationship. We don’t want your dog’s life to change because you’re out of the house, so consistency is extremely important to us. Any rules or training techniques that you already have in place will be strictly followed by us.
  4. Your time along with your trust are extremely important to us. We will reply to your calls or emails in a timely and courteous manner. Whether you are a current client who would like to check in, or even talk to your dog (yes, people do that!) or a potential client who is ready to schedule a meet and greet appointment, we will assist you every step of the way.

While we believe that these qualities set us apart from other options, we also have standard qualifications as well.

We are:

  • Insured and bonded
  • Certified in Pet First Aid & CPR by the American Red Cross
  • A member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters
  • A member of Pet Sitters Associates
  • In love with ALL breeds of dogs!
