    “Hi, I’m Ryan - I’d love to meet your dog!”

    I’m a fellow pet parent who moved last year to the Jersey Shore, and the best part of my day is spent outside with pups. I've been a dog mom for the past decade to two wonderfully tricky girls, Willow (Catahoula) and Sookie (Shih Tzu) who have both taught me a lot about meeting dogs’ needs with patience & love. I also foster cats and kittens through @Jersey Kitty Foster. If there’s anything you need, just send me a message! I’m happy to help, and honored to care for your family.

    I’m Erin and I absolutely love dogs. Seeing their faces and wagging tails just makes my day. Being with dogs is what makes me happiest. I worked at a grooming salon and learned some wonderful tricks of the trade. I know a lot of useful tips for making any kind of transition easy and peaceful for the furry friends.

    “Dog lover ❤”

    Hi! My name is Haylee! I am 32 years old, and have always been an animal lover. I have years of experience working with all different breeds of dogs. I also have experience working in a boarding kennel, and experience with in-home (in the owner's home) pet sitting, and dog walking. I have experience working with a dog groomer, so I'm available to bathe dogs and trim nails too. I look forward to getting to know you and your dog!

    Hi, thank you for considering me to walk your dog. I am a lifetime dog owner and dog lover, who is great with animals (and people) and appreciate you considering me to care for your special family member! I look forward to providing your pet with a safe, fun and satisfying experience. I am also a jogger, so if your dog is high energy and you would like him/her to have more of a run/jog, I will gladly accommodate.

    My first dog was a Bull Terrier named Paddy when I was four. Ever since, I’ve been in love with dogs! I’ve had lots of dogs since then, including German Shepherds (Axel), Black Labs (Mandy and Hank), Norwich Terriers (Wilma and Buster Brown), and Pit Bulls (Penny), and have taken care of many more.I have experience with companion dogs and obedience training, and regularly take care of my friend’s pets when they’re away. I cannot wait to meet you and your dog soon!

    About ten miles west of Colonie, you and Fido can visit Guilderland Dog Park! Because Guilderland is a smaller town, this bark park is less likely to be crowded, which makes it great for dogs that might be on the shy side. Don’t let that fool you, though; there’s still plenty of room for your energetic dog to run around and enjoy some off-leash exercise. Water is provided for your dog, so you won’t need to worry about bringing any from home. You will, however, want to bring along some baggies to clean up any mess your dog makes. No one wants to step in anything left behind!

    Westland Hills Dog Park is just ten minutes away from Colonie, and it’s sure to be a ball for your dog! This off-leash bark park is on the smaller side, but it does have wading pools, which are absolutely perfect for hot summer days. For dog moms and dads, there’s plenty of seating, so you can relax while your dog plays with their pawesome new friends. There’s a clean-up station, so you don’t have to worry about bringing those materials along. Water is also provided for your dog. Locals warn this park gets very muddy after a heavy rain, so you might want to have a towel nearby.

    Washington Park, located in Albany’s Central Avenue neighborhood, is about ten minutes away from Colonie. The park is great if you’re looking for somewhere new to walk your pup; they’ll need to be on a leash while you explore the main area. However, this park also has a separate field that allows your pup to get some off-leash exercise. Note that this is an "unofficial" dog park; dogs are allowed to run leash-free on the parade grounds. Water is available during warmer months, but the park does shut it off during the winter so that the pipes won’t freeze. Please bring waste bags from home. We can practically hear Fido barking in anticipation!

    Just outside of downtown Albany, or about seven miles away from Colonie, you and your dog can enjoy spending time together at Olde English Downtown Dog Park. Locals hail this dog park for its proximity to downtown, which allows your dog the chance to destress if they get nervous around large crowds. You can be sure your dog is secure in this off-leash dog park, as the fences are very tall, meaning there’s no chance of your pup hopping over. As the park is in the middle of the city, it isn’t the largest, so please make sure to clean up after your pooch.

    Do you ever want to go grab a bite to eat but hate the idea of leaving your dog alone at home? Albany’s Helderberg neighborhood, which is just ten minutes from Colonie, is the pawfect place to go! This neighborhood has four dog-friendly restaurants. One of these restaurants is Capital City Gastropub. It’s a casual eatery that serves up traditional pub food. There are plenty of outdoor tables where your dog can join you. Sake Café is another pawpular option with locals. This restaurant serves up all of your favorite Japanese dishes, and the wait staff will also serve Fido, too, if you dine on the patio. Bone Appetit!
