“Your dog ‘s best friend!”

I love animals and enjoyed walking our dog with my daughter when she was growing up. I currently have a rescue dog who is 8 years old. Bonding with her has been a wonderful experience. I can assure you that I will enjoy spending time with your fur baby and provide quality time. I have been caring for dogs with Wag! for over a year now and it has been a wonderful experience! I love everything about my experience with Wag! I have the opportunity to meet so many dogs with amazing personalities!

I grew up with dogs and we always considered them as part of the family. At a young age, I would bring stray dogs home. I have always enjoyed taking care of dogs whether they were my own or others.

“A walk a day keeps the vet away!”

I am an absolute animal lover. I have had a Dachshund, Golden Retriever, and currently an Australian Cattle Dog. I walk my mom’s 100lb rottweiler/pit bull mix and my sister’s 4 lb chihuahua all the time. So rest assured I am capable of all breeds/shapes/sizes/temperaments. I hope to meet your fur baby soon. I also have two kitties :)

“I love all dogs no matter size, drool, or energy!!”

Hi! I have been surrounded by dogs my whole life! I used to walk and take care of my parents dog, Otis, many times before he passed. Now I walk and watch my sister’s 8 month old golden retriever, and my other sisters pit bull mix and lab mix! They all range in energy and size but are no match for my dog walking skills! I love meeting new dogs and helping them burn energy as it helps me burn energy too!

Hi, my name is Judy. I have always had a dog in my life. My dogs and I have attended many obedience classes where I learned a lot! I love animals and am a docent volunteer at the Buffalo Zoo. I worked full time retail for many years so I know how difficult it can be for pets and owners who work. Walking with Wag has been a great experience and I love spending time with my furry friends!

Dog Walking in Lackawanna

Lackawanna may have taken their name from the Lackawanna Steel Company, but today they're much more than a company town. This city has fought through slow growth and boom to stand as a beautiful, interesting, vibrant community--as demonstrated by the dog friendly attractions! Visitors will fall in love, and residents will get reacquainted with some of Lackawanna's greatest treasures. Two vets service Lackawanna's pets, with more in the surrounding area. 

The Yemen Soccer Field is a new recreation area in Lackawanna. There are multiple fields, which means there's almost always a game going on! The large flood lights stay on late, making this park great for a quick walk before bed. If you're looking for something more expansive, head up the road to Buffalo's Buffalo Harbor State Park. This 190-acre park has everything you could want, from dog-friendly hiking trails to campgrounds where you and your pup could spend the night. Buffalo Harbor State Park is located right on the water of Lake Eerie, and you can't let this opportunity go unexplored! 

Lackawanna is a great place for enjoying New York. Visit it for its natural beauty and charm, and use it as a base to explore the whole region!

East Woodlawn

East Woodlawn is a neighborhood of Woodlawn, just six minutes south of Lackawanna. The park here is also called Woodlawn, and the emphasis is much more on the "wood" than the "lawn"! This park is mainly wooded paths. Park along the side and walk up the path and you'll find yourself under many layers of leaves. The park lacks amenities, but makes up for it with an uncrowded trip back to nature. Your dog is going to love sniffing around, and there's enough space for you to have an interesting walk or a challenging jog or hike--it depends on which paths you choose to take!

The Blasdell Fireman's Memorial Park in Central Blasdell is a quick, six minute hop from the heart of Lackawanna. It's a great place to enjoy the region's culture, with a tasteful plaque to commemorate Blasdell's brave firefighters. The rest of the park is divided between an ample green lawn (complete with baseball diamond!) and a smaller wooded section. Either area of the park will be exciting to explore. Let your nose-oriented dog follow a path through the trees, while the runners may enjoy jogging laps with you more! Your pet does have to stay on leash in Blasdell Fireman's Memorial Park.

Just two minutes across the border from Lackawanna to Buffalo is the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. Dogs are not allowed past the point of admission, but they are welcome to use the surrounding park, which is also a planted, sculpted flora wonderland. If you're looking for a place to walk your dog where you won't get bored, this is the place for you. From flowers to trees, shrubs to landscaped expanses, there's always something new to see just around the corner. Dogs have to be leashed on the grounds, and not letting your dog dig in the flower beds is expected!

Triangle

Triangle in Buffalo is a five minute drive from Lackawanna. This residential neighborhood has two parks that serve the community in different ways. The first is Mulroy Park, a large park dedicated mainly to sports. It's home to many league games and your social dog will find a lot to love about watching the crowds or the ball get kicked around. If you're looking for something quieter, Heacock Park is  a much more simple space. This green area at the tip of the triangle is tree dotted green space. Bring your own water and set your own pace for a quick walk or a long afternoon amble.

Cazenovia Park

Cazenovia Park

Seven minutes from Lackawanna is Cazenovia Park, an amazing park that the surrounding neighborhood draws its name from. Cazenovia Park was designed by the designer of New York City's Central Park, and carries the themes of versatility and beauty. Though carefully sculpted with every feature planned for, walking through the park is a natural progression from sports fields and meadows to wooded paths and exercise areas. The park even features a pool and ice rink, though dogs sadly have to keep their paws on dry ground. Leashed dogs are welcome to explore every other inch of the park with you--which might take several days worth of visits!
