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!

Hi! I'm Jeff. I have loved dogs my entire life. From loving our family dog as a child, to being a loving adult owner, they have always had a big place in my life. I have been walking, and sitting, dogs for several years. It started out as just helping friends, and turned into a part-time passion. I have experience with many types of breeds, from small puppies to large senior dogs. I can handle any type of temperament a dog may have. They all deserve the same amount of love, and companionship. I take care of every dog like it is my own. Nothing can make a day better than to be greeted by a happy dog at home.

I have had, and have loved dogs literally since birth! From that first beagle to my current Shepherd-pit mix Kerry, I take pride in my responsibility in feeding, walking, medicating, exercising, playing, and in being affectionate with my dogs(all rescues). I develop a bond with my dogs (and cats too) because I care for them, and they provide unconditional love. I understand signals dogs give through their fur and facial expressions so that every walk is safe. That is my utmost priority. If I should be fortunate to be selected to walk your dog, I will consider him or her as part of my pack!

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!
