I am a dog lover and owner with plenty of dog sitting experience. I am currently a student at Wagner College for theatre. I will be in the Catskill region for my winter break. I was hoping to make some extra money while meeting new pups and spending some time outside.

My name is Alex Gonzalez and I am a student at Pace University in NYC. I am an involved and responsible member of the Pace community and hope to bring these values to Wag! I have been a dog owner for the last 13 years and before then I had wanted a dog for as long as I can remember. My labrador retriever is my absolute best friend and I find that I can cultivate this same fun bond with all of the dogs I meet. Being a part of Wag! is a great opportunity to give back to the greater NYC area while I am attending school.

I grew up with two dogs and trained, fed, walked, and played with them. I am an avid animal lover (especially dogs) and have a lot of experience around them. I have done overnight dog sitting, short-term sitting, and have experience walking dogs of all sizes. Your dog will be happy when they get back from their walk with me!

My name is Andrew and I am a 26-year-old college educated animal lover who likes to play music and works in the fashion industry. I joined Wag because since I moved out of the house I grew up in, I haven't been able to spend as much time with dogs as I've wanted to. Becoming a Wag dog walker gives me the opportunity to help people with their dogs and spend time with dogs in general. I am a very friendly person and I would love to help you walk your dog!

Dog Walking in Germantown

Rich in history, the town of Germantown, New York, lies on the southeast border of the state, directly on the Hudson River. Established in 1788, Germantown is famous for its original and long-time resident, Robert R. Livingston. His son, Robert Jr. was the original drafter of the Declaration of Independence. You can still go and see their property located here. And if your pup needs care while visiting, head to see Roundtop Animal Hospital’s caring staff.

For some outdoor fun in Germantown with your pup in tow, head to Palatine Park, which features puptastic hiking trails around the lake on site. These paths are perfect for all pup-abilities, and offer shade and benches to relax. There is a swimming beach for people (sorry, no pups allowed) and a playground for the kiddies. Bring some burgers for you both to share and cook them on the BBQ grills provided. There are dedicated picnic areas to dine, and you might be able to catch a game on the sports fields. Restrooms are furnished, and be sure to keep Fifi on leash here.

Germantown has a lot to offer pup-lovers, so why not visit this friendly town today?
