Hi, my name is Kristina, I grew up with dogs being part of my family my whole life. So I know how important your fur child means to you. I just adopted a beautiful Golden Retriever German Shepard mix named Bailey, she just turned 3 on September 8th. I adopted her in November of 2017 from a shelter called Southern Paws who work with many shelters to help give dogs a better chance at having a great life. Becoming part of Wag gave me an opportunity to work with dogs and get them outside to explore the world around them. Walks make dogs happy and stay healthy and that is a big plus for your pet visit. I am not certified in any way expect a certified pet lover and treat giver if that counts. Your Wag Walker, Kristina

Dog Walking in Altamont

Altamont, NY is the perfect playground for dogs who love the outdoors. Some pups like to kick back, get pampered, and enjoy the fruits of domestication. Some dogs are all about getting dirty. Altamont has something for everyone--pampered pups and adventurous dogs alike. If something gets too adventurous, there’s a vet right in Altamont, so never fear. Start the pampering with a stay at Appel Inn. Pet friendly for a fee, Appel is local, picturesque, and gorgeous.


For the adventuresome, look no further than Wolf Creek Falls Preserve. Bring your own water (and doggie bowl) to this 135 acre wilderness preserve that is yours to explore. Keep your dog on leash here. There may not be wolves in Wolf Creek, but there are plenty of places to get lost, and lots of wildlife that would be scared off by a nosey dog!


If you and your dog want a blend of outdoor fun and pampering, Tawasentha Park is the place to be. This 200 acre park is huge, and blends grassy space, playgrounds, sports fields, walking paths, and picnic areas into the ultimate park.

The park makes great use of the space that it’s been given.

Pups must stay on leash inside of the park. Bring your own water bowl as the park doesn’t provide water fountains at dog height!

Keenholts Park in Guilderland Center is a busy, family oriented park. The surrounding area is highly residential, so this park is often busy. There are multiple sports fields where neighborhood and little league games are often held. Social dogs will love how busy it is, but their owners will love the open fields and short walking paths as a convenient way to stretch out legs. Dogs have to remain on leash inside the park, but this green space is still a great place to burn off energy. It’s conveniently located in a highly residential area, making it the perfect place to be your regular morning and evening walking spot.

If you really need to get out, head to John Boyd Thacher State Park in this Voorheesville neighborhood, is just 15 minutes from Altamont. The area is great for camping, fishing, exploring, and relaxing, but dogs love the trails. The historic Indian Ladder Trail in John Boyd Thacher State Park is a must if you’re in the area. Most of it is an easy climb for hikers of all experience levels, and there are opportunities to turn back if you’re tired. Dogs must be leashed, but the trails are more than enough to tire them out anyway. It’s a must visit if you’re in the area.
