Hi! I'm Jeff. I have loved dogs my entire life. From loving our family dog as a child, to being a loving adult owner, they have always had a big place in my life. I have been walking, and sitting, dogs for several years. It started out as just helping friends, and turned into a part-time passion. I have experience with many types of breeds, from small puppies to large senior dogs. I can handle any type of temperament a dog may have. They all deserve the same amount of love, and companionship. I take care of every dog like it is my own. Nothing can make a day better than to be greeted by a happy dog at home.

I’ve been taking care of my australian shepherd, Kolby for almost my whole life. I’ve also pet sat for friends and family occasionally for the past 4 years. I volunteered at the SPCA for a year where I walked and fed the dogs. I just love being around dogs and they usually enjoy my company too.

I have had, and have loved dogs literally since birth! From that first beagle to my current Shepherd-pit mix Kerry, I take pride in my responsibility in feeding, walking, medicating, exercising, playing, and in being affectionate with my dogs(all rescues). I develop a bond with my dogs (and cats too) because I care for them, and they provide unconditional love. I understand signals dogs give through their fur and facial expressions so that every walk is safe. That is my utmost priority. If I should be fortunate to be selected to walk your dog, I will consider him or her as part of my pack!

Dog Walking in Buffalo

In a city that is so close to Niagara Falls, it’s no surprise that there is plenty to do with your furry friend. Buffalo, New York boasts several dog parks, pet-friendly hotels and restaurants, and of course, days out for the family and pets of all kinds.

One of the best dog parks to see is the Barkyard. It is a relatively new dog park in Buffalo, completed in 2009, with over 70,000 square feet for your dog to run free. They also have walking paths and picnic shelters for warmer weather and water bowls along the way. This is just one of around ten dog parks to choose from in the Buffalo area.

If you want to get out and explore some nature or if you are more of a history buff, take your pet to Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Society. This location doubles as a museum and state park. There are plenty of walking paths for you and your pet to explore while learning all there is to know about former President Roosevelt.

Once a year, there is a summer event for dogs and their humans. Northtown Subaru Dog Days is a great festival to check out for canine carers. There are contests, games, booths, food, and fun to be had by all. Best of all: it is free!

If staying in the Buffalo area for a while, stay in one of the modern rooms at Candlewood Suites. They have both short and extended stay rooms. Buffalo has many other hotels that offer pet-friendly rooms all over the city. When you are ready for a "bite" (with Fido!) to eat, stop by Chow Chocolat for some gourmet chocolates and a coffee while you sit outside with your furry friend enjoying the brisk, Buffalo air. If you want something more substantial, O3 Downtown offers clean and organic dishes and welcomes you and your pet on their terrace.
