“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.

“I hope I can make your day less stressful :)”

Hello, my name is Jazel and I've taken care of all types of animals like guinea pigs, bearded dragons, fish, birds, cats, and dogs. I love them all and like to care for them. I have experience in taking dogs out, cleaning up after them, play time, and cleaning the rooms they stay in. I also make sure their food diet is what they are eating. I help out my older sister with her five dogs when I’m not working and cuddle with my cats.

“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!

“Every journey begins with a paw, Gotta walk em all”

Hello fellow pet parents! My name is Wahaj Patel and I have been around dogs for over 7 years now. Several of my previous roommates have had dogs (Siberian Husky, Chocolate Lab, American Pitbull, other smaller breeds). Though I have no professional experience, I have always been attentive. Personally, I can't wait to have my own pet but until then Wag allows me to use my previous experience to meet breeds and grow my fondness towards animals.

Dog Walking in Melville

Long Island, New York houses so many pup-friendly towns, one of which is Melville. Located in Suffolk County, east of New York City, Melville is a beautiful town with a lot to offer dog-lovers. While there aren’t any vets in town, there are several animal hospitals and clinics in nearby Plainview and Huntington Station.

As your first activity together, leash up your four-legged companion and head to the West Hills Nature Preserve. This place offers numerous hiking trails and is a beautiful place to escape suburbia. From this preserve, you can hike up to the highest point on Long Island for stunning vistas of the surrounding land and out into the bays. There are picnic tables and lots of lovely trees to rest under for a spot of lunch. Bring water for you both and some clean up bags.

For a casual pup-friendly place to eat in the heart of Melville, head to Roast Sandwich House. The delicatessen-style food on offer includes soups, salads, wraps, paninis and a selection of sandwiches. Your pup is welcome to sit alongside you at one of their outside tables.

Sunday brunch is the perfect family outing, and The Refuge is the place to go with your dog. On Sunday’s, dogs are permitted to join their humans at one of the many outdoor tables. Enjoy your cup of coffee with some morning glory French toast, omelette or blueberry crumb pancakes. Happy Times Café also allow pets at one of their outdoor tables while you tuck into a chubby checker burger, wedge salad or John Wayne’s buffalo chicken.

With so much to see and do in this area and surrounds, you and your dog will love visiting Melville.
