“Walkin’ Rover all over!”

I walk my dogs every day, and in the 18 years that I have owned dogs, this has been my daily routine and joy. I personally trained my dogs to walk well on a leash. One of my dogs was two years old when I adopted him, and he was never trained to walk on a leash before. Now he loves to go on walks with his family. I would be an excellent walker for another dog owner. I am very reliable and responsible, and I treat my canine friends with kindness, respect, and love.

“One human to walk them all...”

I've loved dogs ever since my family adopted Holly, a sweet and beautiful miniature schnauzer, when I was 6 years old. I was always the first to volunteer when it was time to walk her, and continue to leap at any opportunity for some quality canine time. I'm passionate about making sure each dog I walk has a wonderful experience and excited to meet your best furiends!

My name is Dustin and I will be walking dogs in the New York City area. I received my first dog named Snoopy when I was two years old, and have had multiple dogs in my life ever since. I've owned an array of dog breeds- large and small- including a Dalmatian, a Rottweiler, a Maltese, Beagles, and my most recent pup, a Yellow Labrador named Beau, whom I loved and played with for 13 amazing years. I've had experience with dog walking and pet sitting, and because I don't own a dog here in the city- I thoroughly enjoy getting to know and play with new pups.

Dog Walking in Jericho

Situated on the North Shore of Long Island, Jericho is a quaint hamlet that's located just 26 miles from "the city that never sleeps." Jericho has a few claims to fame of its own, though -- it's the hometown of American actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who starred in The Sopranos. The mega-famous Natalie Portman also grew up in Jericho.

Apart from producing some serious acting talent, Jericho is also the pawfect place to be a dog owner! You won't find any pet-friendly lodging options in Jericho (apart from a few AirBnB rentals), but you'll find plenty of accommodations nearby. Jericho also doesn't have any vet clinics, but you'll find an animal hospital just 7 minutes outside of town, in Syosset.

If you have a sweet tooth while you're staying in Jericho, leash up your pup and head to the outdoor patio of 16 Handles, where you can enjoy ice cream, frozen yogurt, or another sweet treat. Leashed canine customers are more than welcome!

While you're here, you'd be barking mad to miss Underhill Preserve, a nature preserve located right in town. This 50-acre preserve has recently come under threat from invasive plant species, so several goats were released in the area to tackle the problem. You never know; you might just see one while you're walking here!

You and your canine companion will love exploring Jericho and its surrounding areas!

Approximately 23 miles from Jericho is a great park that's well worth a visit: Gardiner County Park. This place has a reputation among dog owners as being an extremely dog-friendly park. Although the park has lots of mud and bugs, it's still doggie heaven! (Just be sure to bring bug spray with you.) Exploring the large network of trails here is a great way for you and your pooch to get some exercise. There is a water fountain available as well as waste stations for garbage. Be aware that your pooch has to be leashed when visiting this park. At the end of the trails, you'll find a nice little beach that Fido will pawsitively love!

If you're looking for something closer to Jericho, you should check out the Walt Whitman Trail. The trail is an easy one, and it's 4.25 miles long. It would take you and your pup around two hours to complete it. The path is pretty flat, and lots of horses use this trail, so you should think twice about visiting if your dog dislikes other species. Pups have to be on-leash and are not allowed into the picnic areas. Make sure you bring enough fresh water for you and your pup, as well as waste baggies for cleaning up your fur baby's messes.

A little bit further away from Jericho, around 40 miles away, is a nice dog park that some of you might prefer over the previously mentioned options called Grass Island Dog Park. The park is located in the Belle Haven neighborhood of Greenwich, CT, and it's an off-leash, fenced park where your dog can get his daily exercise. Like most dog parks, this one has two separate sections for large and small dogs. The park isn't huge or fancy, but it's the pawfect place for your fur baby to socialize with other pups! There is a nice little trail outside of the fenced area where you can peacefully walk with your pooch.

Twenty-seven miles from Jericho, you'll find the Stuyvesant Park Dog Run, located in Stuyvesant Town. This small dog run is clean and well-maintained, and it welcomes doggies of all sizes. If you want to take a more sedate stroll with your pup on-leash, hit the walking trail outside of the dog park. There is another park across the street where you can walk your leashed doggo. Stuyvesant Park is pretty spacious and provides thick shade cover as well as benches for the dog owners. The dog run is paved rather than grassy, which means no muddy paws! Be sure to bring your own water and waste bags.

Pelham Bay Park Dog Run, located around 24 miles away from Jericho, is one of the first dog runs built by the Parks Department of NYC. The dog run is a decent size and provides plenty of shade. Doggie bags are provided, as well as a faucet with fresh water and water bowls. In the warm months, the park even puts out a kiddie pool for the pups to cool off in! Make sure you bring a towel if you plan to let your pup swim. Close to the run, you'll find Orchard Beach, which allows leashed dogs to enjoy the sun and surf during the off-season!
