Dog Walking in Colonie

Colonie, New York is a town located about seven miles outside of Albany, the state’s capital. It was originally formed in 1895 because residents in rural areas didn’t want their town to become a larger city, so they simply broke off from those who supported the movement. The town was left with some pretty hefty debt, but residents got to keep their independence. Today, because of its proximity to the larger city, Colonie serves as a bedroom community for Albany. Residents love the small-town vibe with all the nearby amenities of somewhere bigger.

If you’re looking for a Fido-friendly place to call home, you’re in luck! While Colonie doesn’t have any dog-friendly restaurants or dog parks, there are dozens of options within a 20-mile radius. You’ll never have to travel too far away just to have some fun with your furry friend. As far as veterinarian clinics go, Colonie does have one, a local animal hospital that's rated 5 bones by residents. Whether you need to keep your pooch up-to-date on vaccinations or need care for a sick or injured pet, you won’t have to leave town to find it.

Colonie is a beautiful town that’s the perfect fit for you and Fido!

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!
