Hi there, Christopher here. For the past 14 years I've had the pleasure and unforgettable experience of taking care of two puffballs. As I'm sure you already know, it's something quite special and unique. So if you would kindly allow me the opportunity, I'd very much like to meet your own furry friend. I promise to be responsible and give them a fun and healthy walk. See you soon!

“It’s all about your pooch!!”

Hi there! I’ve been a dog lover since childhood. I grew up with a terrier mix. I continued on to eventually add a black lab rescue to my family as we already had our family dog which was a Rescue. My last two dogs were both senior‘s. With some thought I decided to start my own Dog care business. I’d be honored to give your pup the special attention they deserve for our walk!

“Dog Tested, Owner Approved”

As a child, I was firmly a cat person and thought dogs were terrifying - but then we got one! Marla helped show me that the line between cat and dog lovers is meant to be blurred. While cats are still the only animal I have tattooed on my skin, the many dogs I've taken care of will always have a special place in my heart. But don't worry, there's still plenty of room left for your furry buddy too!

Dog Walking in Lake Grove

Lake Grove is a charming town of under 12,000. This doesn't take into account canine residents--though, judging by the two animal hospitals, their population can't be insignificant! People come to Lake Grove for the natural beauty and proximity to other locations. Make Lake Grove your base camp as you explore this area of New York! 


You can't come to Lake Grove and skip the Olga Wilk Park. This charming community park has a little something for everyone. While the majority of visitors are children coming to use the playground, there are other things to enjoy. A couple simple paths make Olga Wilks Park an enjoyable trip for grownups and pups as well. Your dog is going to love sniffing out something fun as he runs through the park! Couple that with great picnic nooks and some handy park benches, and this is a great place to appreciate life in Lake Grove. 

You should also check out the Robert J. Henke Nature Preserve Passive Park. Keep your dog on leash at all times to preserve this natural area. It's great for working up a sweat and appreciating the natural beauty of Lake Grove. 

Lake Grove has a lot to offer visitors, so expect two thumbs and four paws up!

The Lake Ronkonkoma County Park is one of those parks that makes any day brilliant, and is just eight minutes from Lake Grove. Cool off by wading in the water or sitting under the trees. The lake is also popular for kayaking and fishing. You can celebrate a special event with a BBQ at the grill spots near the main picnic area. Just leash up your dog and go for the kind of walk that makes you forget you're only slightly removed from civilization. Walk along the water for a great view, or head deeper into the wooded areas of the park where the walk is slightly more challenging.

Nesconset calls their lakeside neighborhood Lake Ronkonkoma, which can be confusing to visitors as the unincorporated area by the same name is on the other side of the lake! It's only six minutes away from Lake Grove by car, and it's so worth it! On the Nesconset side, you'll find 911 Responders Remembered Memorial Park. This park is a place for quieter reflection with truly beautiful landscaping. Snap a pic of the gazebo and bring your (well behaved) leashed dog with you for a relaxing walk. If you feel the need to be loud, Nesconset's Lake Ronkonkoma County Park North is available for loud BBQs, fun in the sun, and outdoor parties!

Dorchester Park is a small park right near the heart of Lake Grove. Though this park is small, it makes good use of its space to please the two most important park demographics: kids trying to play, and people trying to walk their dogs. The kids should be happy with a three playset long playground. The dogs and people walking them have the rest of the park's green space to explore! With lawns that stretch from the outside edges to the playground, there's lots of room for a curious dog to walk. You can also walk your dog around the park fairly easily, making it a great place to build up your lap endurance!

Andreoli Park in Nesconset is only five minutes from Lake Grove. It's a large park with plenty to do. Start with the tennis courts and basketball courts, then work your way inward. In addition to the baseball diamond, Andreoli Park features picnic areas, open meadows, and even water access in the creek. The creek that flows through the park isn't large, but it provided a welcoming cooling in the summer. In the winter, it makes for a pretty backdrop! Your leashed dog is welcome to explore Andreoli Park with you! Bring your own doggie bowl to help your dog drink from the fountains.

The Walter S. Commerdinger Jr. County Park is the community fixture that lends the neighborhood its name. This residential area is right across the border from Lake Grove, a five minute drive into Nesconset. This park is a very natural setting. You can follow the paths throughout for a walk that fits your needs. Take the loop trail at your top speed if you want to work up a sweat. Otherwise, you and your dog can amble along near the creek that runs through the park. This park is popular with dog walkers, so keep your pup on leash. You may have to share the road!
