Although there is not much in the way of pet services in the area, there is a lovely animal hospital for any emergencies that should arise. The East Islip Animal Hospital is a beautiful and very high rated facility, dedicated to providing the best care possible to your pets. This is great because it provides walkers with the comfort that, should anything happen to their pets, they are in good hands. 


There is also plenty to do for the pet walkers in this area as it has a long list of unique shops available. Although not all of them may be your cup of tea, a lot of these shops provide interesting window views that are sure to keep you entertained. One example is Little Shop of Shamrocks Inc.

Given the location of Islip, it is no surprise that it is extremely flat. There is a slim to none chance that a dog walker in this area will be able to find any kind of hilly area to walk their pets. Although this does bot make it a great place for serious mountain hikers, there are several perks for people who are looking for a more simple and reliable place to walk their dogs. One of the largest perks is the walker's ability to cover much further distances while walking. The lack of hills means daily walks require less energy to go further than they would in more hilly areas. This allows walkers to enjoy more views, which is especially great in a region so close to a beautiful beach.  


This area is also pretty artificial. However, the inclusion of a few parks as well as beach access gives it some natural feel.

Water is a huge factor in most of these parks given the area's natural abundance of lakes, rivers, and ocean views. A great example of this is the Heckscher State Park. This park features 1,657 acres of shorefront from the Great South Bay which makes it the perfect area for dog walking by the beach. East Islip Marina Park, South Shore Nature Center, and Seatuck National Wildlife Refuge are all more great examples of the many water-based parks. These three also include tons of great information about the area. 


There are also some fun, kid-friendly water options like the Shipwreck Cove Spray Park. This park features a massive water playground for all ages. Another great area worth mentioning is the GVC Field. This simple field by the water has become one of the highest rated parks in the area and provides the perfect setting for a relaxing day out and about.
