Hello! My name is Jane, and I have spent my entire life surrounded by dogs. I grew up with labs, but have experience walking and dog sitting for dogs of all ages and sizes, including a two-year old English Bulldog, a four month old Boston Terrier, and a ten year old German Shepherd. I love all animals, but dogs hold a special place in my heart, and I love getting the chance to make sure dogs get the exercise, outside time, and care they need!

Hello! My name is Amy! I grew up on a 40 acre farm with a lot of animals but dogs were my favorite! I have always owned a dog or two. I love dog sitting for family and friends and give every dog I care for a lot of love and affection as if they were my own. I love the outdoors and since I take advantage of the nice days being outdoors, why not take along a four footed friend too? I would love to help both you and your furbaby feel happy that they are being taken care of when you can’t be there. I will make sure your Wag! experience is a positive one for everyone and especially your furbaby!

Hi! My name is David, a dog lover for life! I grew up in Rochester NY before moving to LA to study at USC. I miss being around dogs as a student after having dogs back home for my whole life, so walking with Wag has been such a blast! I love going for long walks (especially in parks) and I love seeing a happy dog enjoying a beautiful day. I've volunteered at animal shelters along with petsitting for many neighbors/friends. I feel comfortable around dogs of all sizes and breeds: my favorite breed is the Brittany Spaniel. I look forward to walking and becoming friends with your furry companion!

If you want to have an adventure close to home, all you need to do is travel 5 miles over to Lehigh Valley Trail. As part of the Rails-to-Trails system, it offers a little bit of history mixed with a whole bunch of nature. The goal is to connect the entire 430-mile original rail line as a functioning walking trail. In this section, you will see that it is set up as a park. There are picnic tables and lots of room to run. There is even a historical rail section complete with a memorial plaque. Lace up your best walking shoes and see how much of the trail you and Fido can tackle together!

Ellison Dog Park is an amazing resource for you and your dog. It is about 23 miles from Ionia, but it’s definitely worth the trip. This park is very well-maintained and kept clean all year round. There are cleaning stations where you will find everything that you’ll need to clean up after your pal. The downside is that you’ll have to register your pup if you want to use this park, and children aren’t allowed at the dog park. However, your registration fee covers all three dog parks in the area and help to keep all the parks as beautiful as you expect them to be.

Rochester, Syracuse and Eastern Trail is about 14 miles from Ionia. It is part of the Rails-to-Trails systems that stretches across New York. This section is dedicated to educating the community and preserving the history of the area. There are multiple points that are marked, as well as an education center on the walking trail. There are outdoor pens and an adoption center as well. The goal has always been to preserve the original trail and make it functional for all the people in the community. You and your dog can enjoy some on-leash exercise in this area. Just remember to bring your own water.

Just twelve miles from Ionia, you’ll find the Ontario Pathways part of the Rails-to-Trails system. This is 19 miles of rails lines that have been repurposed into a V-shaped walking trail. You and your dog can walk over re-docked bridges that once held the rail line. The trail takes you along a farm path, where you’ll find cabbages and other crops. If you go often enough, you can watch the cabbage grow until it becomes ready to harvest. You’ll want to visit this quiet, peaceful trail regularly to escape the stresses of everyday city life. Don’t forget to bring water and waste bags to keep it clean and beautiful.

The Pittsford trail system is another wonderful addition that lies just 12 miles from Ionia. This part of the Rails-to-Trails systems provides more adventure for you than some of the other branches in New York. It leads you through wooded areas that run behind the suburban areas, so it feels like you are miles away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Then it leads you to a shopping area so that you can get what you need without having to go through the busy city. This is just perfect for getting exercise and enjoying the peace of simply being in nature.
