Hi, my name is Jordan. First of all, I love dogs! I have been walking dogs on a regular basis since 2009. This includes walking my neighbor's dogs. I also acted as a long term dog sitter for an elderly woman who had to move into a home. I literally moved in and took care of her dog and her home full time! They had to sell the home and asked me to adopt the dog (Barkis) which I was thrilled to do and we are best buddies :)

Dog Walking in Rochester

The small town of Rochester gets a lot of tourism thanks to its historic downtown. Main Street alone has 22 different structures that are all over 50 years old, with several on the State Register of Historic Places. Something that has stayed around in the town for a long time is the dog-loving attitude that the city encourages. Rochester continues to grow, and with its growth, comes more and more dog-friendly adventures around town.

Bloomer Park is the largest park in Rochester, with over 200 acres of dog-friendly space made up by open fields and thick forests. There's plenty of running space around the park and miles of trails that cut through all areas of the woods. Dogs must remain on a leash 6 feet or shorter at the park, and can enjoy the picnic areas, grilling stations, and fishing spots. Additional features include clean-up stations, water fountains, benches, and trash bins.

The Clinton River Trail is another dog-friendly place to bring Fido on a walk. This trail is 16 miles that follow the Clinton River south, and is made up of broken stone and asphalt. The trail has benches and water fountains along the way, and owners must keep their pups on a leash.
