I grew up helping care for my parent's dogs until I was old enough to care for my own. I currently have a 12 year old papillon, but I have experience with all sized breeds. I would constantly petsit my friends and relatives animals prior to moving to Florida. My favorite animal to sit was Jujo, a husky and Australian shepherd mix.

I will ask questions if I am not sure and I am big on following instructions and doing things the way they are requested to be done.

My name is Andrew and I am a 26-year-old college educated animal lover who likes to play music and works in the fashion industry. I joined Wag because since I moved out of the house I grew up in, I haven't been able to spend as much time with dogs as I've wanted to. Becoming a Wag dog walker gives me the opportunity to help people with their dogs and spend time with dogs in general. I am a very friendly person and I would love to help you walk your dog!

I've shared my home and my heart with dogs of all shapes and sizes since I was an infant. From chihuahuas to English Mastiffs, my puppy love is always huge. I understand how much space our four-legged friends take up in our lives, minds, and hearts, and I would be honored to care for your pet by walking them.

Dog Walking in Kingston

Kingston, sitting 91 miles north of New York City, was the state’s first capital in 1777, and later became an important transportation hub due to the abundance of natural cement in the area and proximity to the canals. This history-rich city is a pup-tastic place to visit with your furry friend, with many parks, trails and places to eat nearby.

Kingston Point is a must-do, sporting both a dog park and adjacent beach for your pup to enjoy. The Kingston Point Dog Park in Rotary Park is a safe, clean and well-maintained off-leash area where your dog can have a great run and meet some new friends. The Kingston Point Rotary Park that houses the dog park also has picnic areas and walking tracks for when your pooch is ready to go back on the lead. The neighboring beach has paths along the water and lovely views out into the Hudson River.

From Kingston Point, you can also explore the Kingston Rail Trail, part of the D&H Canal Corridor. These trails follow the old rail lines and have become a popular and important place for recreation throughout the area. Your pup will have to stay on a lead, but will love wandering the 1.5 mile paved trail with you. 

Kingston boasts 11 pet-friendly places to stay, including Best Western Plus, Super 8 Kingston, Rodeway Inn Skytop, Residence Inn by Marriott and Twin Lakes Lodge. There are also three animal hospitals plus three vets in town, so you can be assured of your pup’s safety. You will both love your stay in Kingston!

There is so much to see and do with your dog in this neighbourhood! First stop, head down to T.R. Gallo Waterfront Park for a scenic on-lead wander with your pooch along Rondout Creek. At the park, there are seasonal restrooms, picnic areas, a marina with spectacular views and the Urban Cultural Parks Visitor Centre where you can pick up lots of useful information on the area. Close by are two other pup-friendly parks, Block Park and Cornell Park. You need to keep your pet on a lead at these parks as well, but there is plenty of space to enjoy a walk and areas to sit for a bite to eat. Speaking of food, if you are looking for a pooch friendly restaurant, there are five here that welcome dogs at an outside table; Armadillo Bar and Grill, Ship to Shore, Savona’s Trattoria, Golden Ginza and Ole Savannah Southern Table & Bar.

On the western boundary of Kingston is the Forsyth Nature Centre, a beautiful place to bring your pup for a walk. There are a dozen gardens to explore here, each thoughtfully planted with native flora from the Hudson area and well maintained. There is a great open green space to stretch out on or enjoy a game together, as well as a well-kept playground for the little ones. Fido will love visiting here, but will need to stay by your side and leashed when walking through the gardens. Pack yourself a picnic and plenty of water, as well as the clean up bags for your pup.

Post Park in the north of Kingston is a pup-tastic park to come for a play with your pet. Set aside the scenic Hudson River, this park has all the amenities you could ask for – BBQ facilities, picnic tables, bathrooms, shade pavilions and a playground. You can also do a spot of fishing off the platform on the river. You will need to keep your pet on a lead here as it is a public park, and be sure to clean up after him. There are several places to eat nearby if you decide to buy your lunch. Check out the Italian restaurant Christina’s, where you can relax at one of the 10 outdoor tables or on the outdoor couch with your pup by your side. You can also sit outside Panera Bread with your dog and enjoy one of their freshly baked pastries, or for something sweet to round out your day, you can’t go past TCBY’s frozen yogurt.

Just three miles north of the Kingston town centre is the 3,000 acre Bluestone Wild Forest which is home to some great dog-friendly trails. From the trailhead, you can choose from three well-signposted loops – yellow, red or blue – each between 1.5 and 2.25 miles long and spanning over easy terrain. Along the way, take in the sights of the oaks, hemlock forests, vernal pools and abandoned bluestone quarries. You may like to bring your kayak and head out on Onteora Lake with your dog for a paddle together, or even try your luck at fishing! Your pet needs to stay on a lead through here to keep him and the local wildlife safe. Bring your water and clean up bags for the trip.

If you are up for a good trail walk with your pup, head to the Hurley Rail Trail parking area in Hurley, to the west of Kingston. This trail is 2.2 miles long and is part of the D&H Canal Corridor which extends thirty-five miles through Ulster County. The trail is paved and is an easy walk through woodland and local neighbourhoods. Keep your pup on a lead and bring plenty of water for you both, as well as some clean up bags. The path follows the former rail bed of the O&W Railroad and connects to the Kingston Link Trail approximately 0.25 miles from the parking area, which runs a further 1.8 miles east.
