When I was young I always hanged around dogs I didn't know. I was short in height and the dogs were bigger than me but they all walked around with me with no leash even though I didn't know them they were my furry friends. If the dog wants to walk left I go left if the dog wants to make a right turn I will go right. I'm here to let the dog have as much fun as possible and be as safe as possible. If the dog is lonely I will take away that loneliness by giving the dog plenty attention.

Hi, I'm Lauren! I've been a dog owner all my life and have had a few pups, including a special-needs Golden Retriever, so I'm used to dogs who need lots of extra attention. I've been professionally dog-walking and dog-sitting for four years and have walked a wide range of dog breeds. Some tasks I've had with past clients are walking, training, administering medication, feeding and checking water, bringing pups to appointments, playing, etc. I'm very excited to meet your very best friend!

Hi, Wonderful Dog Parents! My name is Joseph, a current college student in Chicago and I have been passionate about pet care ever since I got my own dog. This began not only a great love for dogs, but a hobby to take care of others! My dog care experience has played a major role in my life, specifically working with a variety of dogs and places like New York and Chicago for six years. This involves running, long cold walks, and lots of play time! I hope to be the best pet care provider for you!

I am a graduating Art Major who spends a lot of time outside and would love to care take your dog! I love running and going to parks, I also am very patient and understanding and would do whatever means necessary to make sure your dog has a comfortable experience from the moment I have them to the moment I bring them home. Satisfaction is what I aim for, and I'm perfectly fine with adjusting to times that work best for the owner. I do have a car and I have no problem driving the lengths to get to houses to help out a fellow dog owner. I am also very comfortable of walking multiple dogs at once, regardless of breed, or personality. I've had experience of walking dogs in my neighborhood since I was young, and with the knowledge that I've learned over the years I am confident I can use my experience to complete the walks as smoothly as possible.

Dog Walking in Beacon

Beacon, NY is a guiding light to dog lovers! Beacon balances the perks of the suburbs with the thriving bustle of city life, creating a blend where your dog can be pampered at a sidewalk cafe or enjoy the thrills of running off leash. Don’t fear slip-ups, either: Beacon has three veterinary clinics if you’re ever concerned about your best friend’s health. Start your day at The Beacon Bagel, where your dog can join you at a pet-friendly, patio table while you start your day with coffee drinks and a selection of sandwiches, bagels, and more.

If you and your dog are craving a good hike, the Fishkill Ridge Trail is a pleasant challenge. The red trail is the shortest, and clocks in at 1.5 miles with occasional steep areas. Bring your own water (and bowl for your buddy) and keep your dog on leash in this semi-wilderness area.

If you want to wrap up the day with a treat, Ella’s Bellas Gluten Free Bakery is a great place for people with food sensitivities and the pets that love them. Dine outdoors on vegan, gluten-free, and other meals. Their central location gives them a great view of Beacon from your patio table!

Scenic Hudson’s Long Dock Park is a great place to walk your dog and appreciate an amazing view of neighboring Manhattan. This park extends to the water, making it great for watersports, but it also has an extensive picnic area perfect for BBQing. Leashed dogs can enjoy a fun day with the family. For something more vigorous, take the Riverfront Trail on an extended loop by the water and through a short wooded area. The walk is paved, flat, and fairly easy to walk. The view along the way is also amazing. Scenic Hudson’s Long Dock Park is a must see for Beacon visitors.

The Pandorica is a casual dining restaurant in Beacon’s Business District that’s perfect for dogs to join. The food is American, but British influence is plain, and for people who caught the reference in the restaurant’s name, the menu items also sometimes allude to everyone’s favorite Time Lord. Down the street, Beacon Bread Company serves up French cafe classics as well as fresh baked goods every day. They have a small patio area where canine customers are welcome. Go a little further to Cafe Amarcord, where New American food is served to outdoor, dog-friendly tables at lunch and dinner. At any of these Business District restaurants, dogs will love their outdoor, people-watching friendly seating.

The corner of Memorial Park in the North Trees Streets neighborhood of Beacon holds Beacon Dog Park. It’s a great place for Beacon residents to go to let their dogs run off leash and socialize with other dogs. It’s not as great for visitors who are just passing through, as it does require a seasonal fee to use the park. If you don’t think you’ll be in Beacon long enough to fully enjoy the off leash dog park, try the walking trails at Memorial park instead. They’re an easy walk and a great way to exercise your dog on leash.

If your dog needs a lot to tire her out at night, you’re going to want to pack your backpack with snacks, water, and a doggie bowl and head to Mountain Side Section. Start at Mountain Beacon Trailhead for an occasionally steep climb up the foothills of Mount Beacon. If that’s enough for you, you can turn back when Mountain Beacon Trailhead runs into Beacon Overlook, a very popular trail in the area. The distance to Beacon Overlook is only a mile, but is moderate difficulty and up. The Overlook is not easy either, but the views cannot be beat.

Madam Brett Park in South Trees Streets is a great place to walk your dog on leash. The park offers a little bit of something for everyone, and is guaranteed to tire your pup out. If you only need an amble to wake up in the morning, try the park’s riverside trail. It’s a smooth, low difficulty path perfect for a gentle walk. If your dog needs to calm down, head deeper into the park. Some of the trails are more adventurous, winding through trees and over wooden bridges. Dogs will love the wildlife, and it’s a great break from the city.
