Hello! I am a walker with a variety of experience—I earned my degree in Animal Behavior and have worked as a dog trainer doing obedience, agility, and scent training. I also have experience working in a dog daycare and pet sitting and walking. I love all kinds of dogs, big and small! I look forward to meeting your pups :)

Hi! I’m Kerri, a current college student in New York. Back at my house upstate, I have a dog (who I miss very much). I absolutely love dogs and I can’t wait to get to know all kinds of dogs on walks! Before my current dog, Arnie, I had a beagle when I was young. From these two, I have experience with both senior dogs and puppies. In high school I also worked at a veterinary hospital.

Marcy is a slow-paced, old-fashioned town where visitors and residents can relax and embrace the beauty of upstate New York. From the parks to the history and the nearby cities, Marcy has something to interest for everyone, and plenty for you and Fido to do.
While Marcy itself does not have any pet-friendly lodging, less than five miles down the road is the city of Utica, and there is plenty there. In fact, between the eleven hotels and multiple Air BnBs that allow pets for reasonable rates, you may have a hard time deciding where you want to stay!
Marcy is proud to offer its tourists and locals Marcy Town Park, with 45 picnic tables and charcoal grills you and Fido can choose from. There is also a pavilion for rent with full cooking facilities should you require it. At the park, located on Toby Road, you can explore the walking trails and then refresh and hydrate at the restrooms and water fountains provided. There is also a doggie clean-up station, so aside from packing some food for you both, you don't have to prepare too much to visit this well-kept park! Hours are 7 a.m. until dark.
Between Marcy and Utica, there are multiple vet clinics, so in case of an emergency, you have plenty of choices to help Fido recuperate!
Right around the corner from Marcy is New Hartford, where you will find a furrific dog park for Fido to run off some energy! On Route 12, the Sherrill Brook Park is waiting for you, with miles of fully marked hiking trails for you and your dogs to explore, complete with a designated dog run just for our furry friends! If you want to be active with Fido and play outside of the dog runs, the park has some wide-open expanses of lawn that would be perfect for playing frisbee together. When you both run out of energy, relax and enjoy a picnic while you inhale the fresh mountain air.
Marcy is a hop, skip, and jump (or less than five miles if you'd rather drive) from Utica, where, in addition to the multiple dog-friendly hotels, you can find the Tassel Hill State Forest. This 2,663-acre state forest, also called the Albert J. Woodford Memorial State Forest, features the highest point in Oneida County, Tassel Hill, at 1,945 feet high. In this park, visitors can fish off of the Chittning Pond fishing pier and explore the natural forests. Bring a picnic for you and Fido so you can spend the day here, and make sure you don't miss Frostbite Falls, the gorgeous waterfalls southwest of Tassel Hill.
When you have a little extra time, less than fifteen miles down the road in Rome, you will find the Rome Bark Park. If you are looking for a pawesome place to let your four-legged friends roam free, this is the place to visit. To access the park, you will need to apply for a permit, so you'll need to plan this ahead of time. Bring a leash, as is the rule, and only two dogs per owner are allowed. While you're in Rome, check out the dog-friendly restaurants like DiCastro's Brick Oven, Papa Rick's Snack Shack, and Mazzaferro's Meats and Deli, all of which have outside patio seating for you and Fido.
The Lock 20 Canal State Park, found in South Marcy, is a beautiful area to bring Fido for a picnic or just to watch the boats go through the canal locks. The opening and closing of a lock is a unique experience that most people never get to see. The town of Marcy prides itself on ensuring that the Lock 20 Canal State Park is always clean. You will find plenty of amenities, like picnic tables, restrooms, and shelters from inclement weather. When the locks are not in use, you and Fido can access the canal trail on the other side and explore the scenic grounds.
If you are looking for a great place to spend the entire day without a lot of driving, 15 miles down the road from Marcy is Delta Lake State Park, where residents and tourists flock to for swimming, camping, hiking, and more. The park is an excellent showcase of the glories of the Adirondack Mountains, located on a peninsula extending into Delta Reservoir, with flat, wooded areas. Household pets are allowed, but they must be caged or on a leash, not more than 6 feet long. They aren't allowed in the bathing areas, but you can take them through the rest of the park and explore.
