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.

I was raised on a farm in California, and I have been around dogs since I was a very young child. I have cared for dogs both professionally and for family, roommates and neighbors. I LOVE dogs, and I think they can sense when they meet a dog lover, which probably explains why they tend to love me as much as I love them. I look forward to spending time with your furry friend!

I'm great with dogs! I've walked and dog sat for friends and family over the years and volunteered in animal shelters, and want to pass on my experience and love to your dog. I'll make sure your dog has a fun walk, and gets his or her, ahem, 'business' done. I'm sure I'll love your dog and they'll love me (but if they don't, no worries, they're still a good dog)!

Dog Walking in Hempstead

One of the fascinating things that you may not know about Hempstead, New York is that it was split in half due to Blue Laws, which seek to limit business activity on Sundays. Rather, it was the citizens' disagreement about the Blue Laws that caused North Hempstead to break away from modern-day Hempstead, which supported the Blue Laws.

Perhaps this support is why Hempstead is home to so many parks and green spaces where its residents, both canine and human, can relax. You'll find many people and pups enjoying Hempstead's parks each day.

Let Halls Pond Park be your first stop. You will love the calm and relaxing atmosphere that you will feel from the moment that you pull up. Walk Fido along the well-maintained trails that go around the pond. There are ducks to feed or, in your dog's case, bark at. Bring a book and blanket, because you will want to sit and stay a while. You will need a leash and a water bottle. 

Next, you need to visit Hempstead State Park, which has over 700 acres of room to roam. Bring a leash, because you'll need it in some areas, but there are some leash-optional areas. Bring your camera, because this park is one of three and is known for its wildlife.

Port Washington is about fifteen miles from Hempstead, and is home to a furrific place to enjoy an outdoor excursion: Sand Point Preserve. Bring your leash and take a hike up the cliffs that overlook New York Sound. The views are amazing, but that's nothing compared to the sense of adventure you will get. If you don't want to climb the cliffs, then you can explore the Sand Point Castle. Bring your own water; there aren't any fountains along the way. You will also need to bring your own doggie waste bags. Sand Point Preserve is the pawfect place for an adventure!

Paws Place Dog Park is huge. It's about the size of a baseball field, which means there's plenty of room for your pooch to run and romp off-leash with some new fur-iends! There are water stations set up here, but they are seasonal, so make sure to bring your own as well, especially during the off-season. The cleaning stations are stocked so you can pick up after your pup. This dog park is located approximately 25 miles from Hempstead, in New Rochelle.

You only have to go fifteen miles to get to Nickerson Beach in Lido Beach. This is a dog-friendly beach where you can bring your fur baby with you to play in the sun and sand! There is no running water or doggie waste bags here, but there is a fence so that you can let your dog off his leash with no issues. Off-leash beaches are hard to find, so be sure to stop by! This is a fun place to enjoy an outing with the whole family, furry members included. Parking is the only issue. There is a fee for parking, or you can find free parking a couple of blocks away.

Hankering for a long hike with your hound? Walt Whitman Trail is a four-mile hike that will take you and your dog a couple hours to enjoy.
