When Howard watches your pet

Westwood -Westville section of New Haven. Walking around our block is 1/2 mile exactly and when we do this we normally see at least 4 others out walking their dog. My wife, daughter and I are always home and will be with your pet. If he/she likes playing, ball chasing, etc. we can do so, etc. We walk to the library - 2 mile walk as well
