We just received a wonderful review of the Ruff Rider Roadie dog car restraint:

“We just completed a 1300 mile trip from Bradenton, Fl to West Palm Beach, Fl to Hartford, CT with my 11 month old Australian Labradoodle Lily Grace.  I loved the Ruff Rider because there is no way she could pop it open and get out of it and I knew she was protected from sudden stops.  I ordered a size three and it fits her great because of the pleats underneath the chest.  She weighs abut 35 pounds but has a deep chest.  As you can see Lily Grace was very comfortable in the seat belt.  Lily Grace also has a hammock in the car.  Safe dogs make happy pet Mommas.”

We couldn’t agree more! Thank you so much for sharing this great review of your new dog seat belt. And thank you for sharing the adorable photo of Lily Grace. 🙂

Now that you’re in Hartford, what are some things you and your dog can do? We checked out DogFriendly.com and found a couple of things. There are some great scenic walks through Talcott Mountain State Park. Also, there is a very long trail that goes all the way through both Connecticut and Massachusetts. Get on the Metacomet-Monadock trail, part of the New England National Scenic Trail, from 3022 Albany Ave in West Hartford. There are other entrances to this trail as well.

We found a few more things for you and your dog to do on CBS Connecticut – Best Places to Take Your Dog in Hartford. One place mentioned is the Wethersfield Dog Park. Here is a cute video of dogs at the dog park.

Another place mentioned is the Farmington River Trail. There is an entrance from Sperry Park in Avon, CT (about 20 minutes west of Hartford).

And you have to go see Bushnell Park! There is always something going on there. Dogs on leashes are welcome in most areas.

    We live right outside of Hartford!! There’s tons of state parks and dog parks up this way and all kinds of rail trails. As long as your dog is on leash, you’re good to go.
