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 Castleton-On-Hudson

Castleton-on-Hudson is a quiet village in Rensselaer County.  Located on the east banks of the Hudson River, it is only about a square mile in area. This waterfront community’s rich history includes river transportation, farming, brick making, and tragic flooding. Today, it still enjoys the beauty of the mighty Hudson River as well as a charming rural feel. It even has its own veterinary clinic.

When visiting Castleton-on-Hudson, a stop at the Papscanee Island Nature Preserve is a must. Sprawling just over 150 acres, this preserve showcases the Hudson River’s natural beauty. Not only will your pup get some much needed exercise, she’ll also learn all about the Mohican Indians, the original inhabitants of the area. Interpretive signs teach about how they lived hundreds of years ago. There are also signs about the wetland habitats. Over six miles of trail weave throughout the property, so your furry friend will have plenty of room to stretch her legs. If she needs a rest, or just wants to listen to the birds, take a break on one of the many benches. Since there are plenty of critters crawling around the preserve, it’s a good idea to check your dog for ticks after your walk.

No doubt about it, your pup will love spending time in this furrific village!

Need a weekend away? Grab a tent and a couple sleeping bags and head down to Schodack Island State Park in Schodack Landing. It sits right on the banks of the Hudson River and is a pup-ular spot for boating, fishing, biking, and picnicking. There is also a pawsome network of trails that are used for hiking in the summer and cross country skiing in the winter. The Orange Trail clocks in at two miles, while the Yellow Trail runs for three miles. Follow either of these trails to get your pup’s heart rate pumping. After a day of fun in the sun, your pup will be ready to relax by the campfire.

If your pooch is itching for walk, then it’s time for a trip to the Schodack Town Park. It’s just 10 minutes away in the neighboring town of Nassau. This puptastic park is a dog walking haven. Your furry friend will wag her tail as she wanders through the forests and meadows. A variety of loop trails cut through the property. Your pal can be the leader as she sniffs out her own route. Or, to keep things simple, follow the 1.5 mile Perimeter Trail around the outside of the park. The Moordener Kill meanders through the park, so if she gets too hot, she can dip her paws in the refreshing water.

Is your dog bursting with energy? It must be time for a trip to the Normanskill Farm Dog Park. Located in Albany, this off leash area is 20 minutes from Castleton-on-Hudson. It’s a little off the beaten path, but it’s worth looking for. Not only does this park give your pup a chance to run around sans leash, it also sits near a historic working farm, so the scenery is pawsome! When your pup is finished romping around, clip on her leash and explore the farm’s main trail. Your pup will walk alongside Norman’s Kill, around the farm, and through a golf course. By the time you get to the car, she’ll be ready for a nap!

A furrific doggy mural adds to the park’s character. For a pawsome leashed walk, the Mohawk Hudson Hike Bike Trail is nearby. Your pup can stretch his four legs as he trots along the Hudson River.  Access the trail in the Corning City Preserve.

Washington Park is one of Albany’s crown jewels. This massive park hosts various events and festivals throughout the year. It also features Washington Park Lake, a picturesque footbridge, sport courts, playground, and bike paths. Fur-tunately, leashed dogs are welcome to enjoy the park’s beautiful grounds. If you have an athletic pooch, walk, jog, or run with him around the paved paths. Or, if your pup’s on the mellow side, take an easy stroll through the trees and gardens to check out the unique statues and monuments. After her workout, find a bench and chillax with your furry BFF.
