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 not here to discipline the dogs 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 but giving the dog plenty attention.

Dog Walking in Cold Spring

Although Cold Spring may be only 50 miles from New York City, this quaint village has such an idyllic, old-world feel to it that it almost seems as though you have stepped back in time. Not only is the historic heart of the village so well-preserved, and complete with parks, trails, dog-friendly restaurants and a reputable animal hospital, but the outskirts of Cold Spring is home to some of the finest dog walks that New York has to offer.

There are so many pawriffic hiking trails to choose from in Cold Spring, with a few of them being located in the Clarence Fahnestock State Park. This 14,337 acre park has four ponds, two lakes, plenty of wildlife, and a number of different hiking trails. Both the School Mountain Road Trail and the Moneyhole Mountain Trail stretch out for just over four miles, while shorter walks include the half mile Trout Brook Trail, the quarter mile Clear Lake Connector Trail, and the one mile Cabot Trail.

After all of that walking, Fido deserves to relax and be treated to a meal at one of Cold Spring's dog-friendly restaurants. For scenic views while you chow down on an artisanal pizza, Riverview is the place to go, while the Cold Spring Depot Restaurant is known for their pub fare, with daily seafood specials. If you get the chance, be sure to check out Hudson Hill's Market and Café in the morning, as their breakfasts are the perfect way to start the day.

Not only are there a seemingly-endless choice of walks to be had in Cold Spring, but the views and the food are unbeatable too, making this the perfect place to spend some quality time with your pooch.

There are two sections within the park, one for smaller dogs and one for larger breeds, but you will need to bring your own water and doggie bags.
