I doubt you're ever gonna find anyone who loves dogs more than I do. I've lived with dogs my whole life, walked at least 100 of my friends dogs, read dog books, volunteered at the Humane society in Hawaii, donate to ASPCA monthly, and just love them like crazy. I'm used to walking between 35.000 to 45.000 steps a day and can't wait to start walking your little one.

Hi there. My name is Dan. I go to school at GW, and I'm looking to walk some local pooches to help pay for school. I'm new to the world of professional pet care, but I'm no stranger to caring for dogs. I have a basset hound mix named Bon Bon back home (who I miss like crazy) that I've loved and cared for the past 8 years. I've also had experience sitting and walking dogs for neighbors and relatives. I look forward to getting out to meet some new pups and brighten their days.

Hello, my name is Gideon. I had two dogs when I was a boy, and I have always loved them. As an adult, I personally rescued a 6-month old Pit Bull Terrier who had been abandoned in the street, and she was the best dog ever! Training and raising her taught me a lot about how dogs behave, and how to walk them responsibly. Thank you for reading my bio, I look forward to meeting and walking your dogs!

Dog Walking in Garden City

Garden City is a moderately populated village located on Long Island. The village was founded in 1869 by an Irish multi-millionaire named Alexander Turney Stewart, who bought the original settlement, Hempstead Plains. Stewart described Hempstead Plains as a "barren waste", and said he was willing to spend "several millions of dollars" to turn it into a desirable place to live.

Stewart's investment was a sound one, because modern Garden City is anything but a barren waste! It's home to Adelphi University's main campus, effectively making it a college town. You don't need to be a college student to enjoy the sights and sounds Garden City has to offer, though! Canine companions are welcomed here with open arms, and the two animal hospitals in town keep all pups happy and healthy.

Garden City is home to several pet-friendly hotels, including budget-friendly national chains like La Quinta Inn & Suites and Hyatt Place as well as The Garden City Hotel. This hotel was rebuilt after extensive fire damage, but it stands on the same grounds as the original hotel which first attracted settlers to the village in the mid-19th century.

When it comes to restaurants and cafes where you can take your dog with you, there are plenty in Garden City! You'll find more than 15 eateries that allow dogs. Some of these include Grimaldi's, Sushi Ya, Prost Grill and Garten, Seventh Street Café, Garden City Bistro, Revel Restaurant & Bar, La Nonna Bella, and many more.

This quaint college village is the pawfect place to visit or live, especially for dog owners!

Dog-friendly, off-leash beaches are really hard to find, so you'll want to make a beeline for this furrific spot!

If you're feeling a little bit more adventurous and want to take a long walk with your dog rather than play in an enclosed space, then the Walt Whitman Trail is the perfect choice. The trailhead is around 14 miles away from Garden City, in North Melville. This hike is pretty easy and not that long, about 4.25 miles. The terrain is flat, which makes it the perfect place for walkies! The entire trail will take around 2 hours to finish. Your pooch has to be leashed on this hike. You should also make sure that you have enough water and poop bags with you.

Eisenhower Dog Park is the nearest dog park to Garden City, located just 5 miles away in Westbury. This park features a separate area for small dogs and another area for large dogs. These areas have separate entrances for the maximum comfort of your pup. The park provides water and disposable bags for cleaning up. There's also plenty of shade and benches for the human visitors, as well as off-street parking. The park has more than enough room for your pup to exercise and socialize with other pooches. The ground is a mix of grass and dirt, which locals say can get muddy when it rains, so plan accordingly if you're visiting on a rainy day.
