I have been around dogs my whole life! Whether it has been my own dog or family or friends 4-legged companions, I've seen them all. I'm looking forward to meeting many new friends to walk (or even run) with. I am comfortable with all size and breeds of dogs. Also I am strong enough to take care of them even in advanced situations. I hope that you give me a chance at taking care of the one's closest to you!

I have two adorable cats but unfortunately, no dogs of my own. I have always loved dogs and have always been the designated dogsitter of the family, but I am unable to have a dog of my own at this time in my life. Since I am currently attending school, I have a flexible schedule and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to spend time with dogs!

Dog Walking in Dunkirk

Dunkirk was founded in 1880. While no records exist showing how dog-friendly it was in those days, today it makes a furrtastic vacation spot, or home, for dogs of all stripes, spots, and brindle patterns! There are two animal hospitals in Dunkirk, which is impressive for a town its size! 


Wright Park is a great place to explore with your dog. Keep your dog on a leash six feet or less in length, and you'll be in for a great time! Wright Park has a beach worth exploring, but there are also walking trails if that's something you and your pup would enjoy instead! You can also look at Memorial Park if you have to entertain a big group. Cook out on the grills and get everyone together under shaded picnic tables for lunch! Leashed dogs can also explore the grassy fields and small bike path at Memorial Park. 

For a small pet fee, Best Western Dunkirk & Fredonia Inn will let you have your dog in your room with you. They don't limit based on a dog's size, and you can have multiple dogs in the same room--perfect for people who travel with a whole pack!

Dunkirk is a great place to explore with your dog by your side!
