“I love all dogs no matter size, drool, or energy!!”

Hi! I have been surrounded by dogs my whole life! I used to walk and take care of my parents dog, Otis, many times before he passed. Now I walk and watch my sister’s 8 month old golden retriever, and my other sisters pit bull mix and lab mix! They all range in energy and size but are no match for my dog walking skills! I love meeting new dogs and helping them burn energy as it helps me burn energy too!

“Dogs are family”

I have grown up with dogs all of my life and I live a very active lifestyle so I would love to walk your dog during my free time! I play ice hockey for the US women’s national team, so when I’m not training or coaching hockey, I have plenty of time to walk your dog. If you have an active dog I can also take them on a run. I love being in the company of dogs because they immediately brighten my day!

Hi, my name is Judy. I have always had a dog in my life. My dogs and I have attended many obedience classes where I learned a lot! I love animals and am a docent volunteer at the Buffalo Zoo. I worked full time retail for many years so I know how difficult it can be for pets and owners who work. Walking with Wag has been a great experience and I love spending time with my furry friends!

Dog Walking in Derby

Derby, New York is a fun little town seated right in Eerie county. You will absolutely love that it is packed with things that you can do with your dog all year long. You can stay at one of the five pet-friendly hotels in the city. Take a walk through the town square, and don't forget to stop by town hall for a map of the area. They are super welcoming to new visitors and will gladly point to places of interest. 

If you would like to go play on the beach, you can take your pup over to Bennett Beach and let them splash and play in the water. There are dog-specific beaches set up. You can go fishing or boating if you would like, too. 

If you want something to do that isn't water-related, you could check out the Eighteen Mile Creek. Bring a leash and you can take your dog walking down the trails. You will see squirrels and rabbits all along the way. There is the creek to play in, but there are many other things to do as well. For instance, you could learn to track small animals or deer. Your pup will love all the new smells along the way. Don't forget to pack a picnic and some water.

The town of Evans is adjacent to Derby. Evans even has Derby addresses. They also have a dog park that is set up just so that the local dogs have somewhere to get off their leashes and just play. If you are visiting in the area, you can get a day permit so that you can play. Children are not allowed in the gates. There are two areas, one for big dogs and one for little dogs. The double gate system will help you keep your dog from escaping. You can meet local pet parents here as well. The park is open daily until 7 pm.

The sun is shining. The breeze is flowing. It is a beautiful day to bring your pup to one of the outdoor tables at Comfort Zone. You can wrap your hands around a nice warm cup of coffee. They do have a small menu of light dishes like muffins and scones. You can get hot tea if you prefer. All dogs are greeted happily as long as they are on their leash. This little bit of comfort is located about ten miles from you and your pup. Just don't forget to bring a water dish for your dashing dog!

This is a beautiful park that is well-kept and a local favorite. You and your dog will love coming to play so much that the drive won't seem like a big deal.

John and Mary's is about ten miles from you. You will find that they have some of the best pizza around with all your favorite toppings. You can get new flavors here as well. In addition to pizza, they also have a fry menu featuring fajita fries, pepper poppers, and wings. Your dog can join you at any of the outdoor tables if you want to share your meal with your fur baby. Pizza is a great way to make friends or visit with old ones, so if you don't want to come in and eat, grab a pizza or two for the road.

Knox Farm State Park has it all. You and your dog can walk the miles of trails through the park, provided that your pal is on a leash, of course. If you are looking for an off-leash fun zone, there's also a dog park here, which is open all year. It is a completely fenced zone that is designed for dogs to come and have a good time. There is no running water, so please remember to bring some. You can get some solitude if you want to walk the trails, or you can meet some pet parents at the park. This pawesome place is about half an hour away from Derby, but it definitely worth the drive!
