“Your dog ‘s best friend!”

I love animals and enjoyed walking our dog with my daughter when she was growing up. I currently have a rescue dog who is 8 years old. Bonding with her has been a wonderful experience. I can assure you that I will enjoy spending time with your fur baby and provide quality time. I have been caring for dogs with Wag! for over a year now and it has been a wonderful experience! I love everything about my experience with Wag! I have the opportunity to meet so many dogs with amazing personalities!

I am an absolute animal lover. I have had a Dachshund, Golden Retriever, and currently an Australian Cattle Dog. I walk my mom’s 100lb rottweiler/pit bull mix and my sister’s 4 lb chihuahua all the time. So rest assured I am capable of all breeds/shapes/sizes/temperaments. I hope to meet your fur baby soon. I also have two kitties :)

“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!

I am comfortable with all dogs, even if they might be nervous with meeting new people (as my own dog struggles with this at times). I will treat your dog as my own and ensure that they are enjoying their walk and getting everything that they need.

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 Grand Island

About the size of Manhattan and with a population of 20,374 people, Grand Island, NY is still growing. The island is situated in the heart of Niagara River, splitting it in two. There are only 2 veterinary clinics here, and the Beach House restaurant is the only pet-friendly place to eat. This riverside restaurant is American-inspired and is a great place to take in some sun with your pooch.

There are 2 state parks on the island. Buckhorn Island State Park is on the northern part of Grand Island, and Beaver Island State Park is located on the southern end. They stretch over 800 acres in total, and both have trails that you and your pup can enjoy. Of course, as is the case with most state parks, you will need to keep your pup on a leash.

Unfortunately, there aren’t off-leash dog parks on the island, but there is a local favorite dog park about 10 miles away that you will just need to get your paws on! Bark Park is located on Dog Walking Island. Could you ask for a more pawfect place for your dog to roam free? It has plenty of space, and the beach areas are great places to swim. Bring your own doggie waste bags and make sure you clean up after your pet.

Located approximately 30 miles from Grand Island is the city of East Aurora. Although it is quite a drive to the city, it is well worth it. East Aurora is home to the Knox Farm State Park. This park has plenty of walking trails for dogs on leashes and fenced in areas for off-leash dogs. The park also welcomes horses. Furthermore, it is unclear if the park provides necessary amenities for dogs, so you will have to take your own doggie poop bags, water and toys. But trust us, you and your dog will have a pawtastic time at this park!

Williamsville is at a mere 15-mile drive from Grand Island. Although it does not have any dog parks, the drive is well worth it! You and your pooch can enjoy a day surrounded by lush green grass and vibrant flowers if you head to the Amherst State Park located in Williamsville. Of course, as this is a state park, you will not only have to keep your pup leashed at all times, but you will also have to take your own doggie poop bags, water and toys. Pack a picnic, grab a good book and head to the park to have a wonderfurr day!
