The village of Harrison, New York was actually purchased twice. According to local folklore, the Native Americans who originally lived in the area didn't understand that they were selling the land. The concept was new to them, because they believed land was not something that you could own.  However, feldspar -- which is the naturally-occurring mineral used to make fine china -- had been discovered in the area. It was an indispensable commodity that made the region attractive to settlers.

Modern-day Harrison is touted as a great place to live and work. In 2014, Harrison was voted the sixth best place to live in the state of New York, and the number one place for small business. It's also located just over 20 miles from Manhattan, making it convenient for commuters and those looking to visit the Big Apple.

Harrison isn't just a great place for humans to live, but it's also pawfect for pets! When the local chapter of the Eagle Scouts needed a project, the city's recreation department suggested putting in a dog park -- Harrison Dog Park. This was a huge success. It brought all the residents and their fur babies to one central location to play and socialize. If you want to visit, all you have to do is check in at city hall to get a key card. You have to show proof of vaccinations, but it is well worth it to have a safe, off-leash place to play.

    Veterans Memorial Park is a quiet park where you can explore trails through the wooded areas with your dog. There is a playground, ball fields, and even a picnic area. The BBQ grills are available on a first come, first served basis. There is a leash law in effect, but there is still a lot that you can do while you are here. You will want to bring water for you and your pet. Please remember to bring doggie waste bags so that you can clean up after your dogs. Overall, this is a quiet park where you can just enjoy the day.

    You know those beautiful ice cream cakes that look like works of art? You can now bring your dog with you to Carvel Ice Cream and pick one up! They are almost as delicious as they are beautiful. If you don't want a whole cake, you can get a serving of soft serve that is hand dipped. All of their outdoor tables are pet-friendly. All they ask is that your dog remains on a leash and is always well-behaved. Don't forget to order your dog his very own soft served, treat because everyone loves ice cream! (Just stick with a small scoop of vanilla, though -- other flavors can upset pup's tummy.)

    Saxon Woods Trail is a 2.5-mile trail system that is easy to walk and enjoy with your dog. There are some restrictions to this, though, so be sure to pay attention to the rules. For instance, dogs are not allowed at any of the picnic sites, bathrooms, or play areas. You'll also have to keep your dog on a leash while you enjoy the trails. Bring your own waste bags, because none are provided here. There aren't very many trash cans either, but this is the only downside of this park. You and Fido are sure to fall head over paws for this quiet, shaded park!

There are a few trash cans, so bring your doggie waste bags with you to keep the trail clean and beautiful for everyone.

    Do you have a craving for the ultimate margarita? Then you need to come on over to Guadalajara. It is about eighteen miles from Harrison. The best part is that it is dog-friendly! So grab a leash and come get a huge margarita to go with your sizzling fajitas or tantalizing tacos. The menu boasts mostly Mexican fare, but they do have a couple of American dishes, like burgers and fries. As long as your dog is well-behaved, he can sit at any of the dog-friendly tables. Remember to bring a water bowl for your pooch, and try to resist the puppy dog eyes he'll pull when he sees the waiter approaching with your food!
