    Hi everybody, my name is Gabriel. I’m a full-time dog lover and dog owner. I own a beautiful female boxer named Nicky she’s 11 years old and she’s the love of my life. I’ve grown up around dogs and am a formal dog walker for pet sitters club, during my time at pet sitters club I averaged 10-12 dogs a day I had a special relationship with each and every single dog. I have a keen eye for dogs body language is when they are agitated, sad and of course happy. I also maintained my friendship with dog owners that I’ve worked with in the past. I’m a responsible well spoken well-mannered individual and will take care of your dog as if it were my own.

    “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!

    West Hills

    North of Melville in Huntington is the West Hills County Dog Park in the West Hills County Park, where your dog will love playing off-lead with other pups and having a really good run. There are waste bags available on-site, but bring some water and a drinking bowl for when your pup has worked up a thirst. You will need to arrange a park pass or pay a fee for using the park at particular times of the day. Also in this area is the Walt Whitman Trail, where you can bring your dog for an on-lead walk through the forest. The main trail is 4.25 miles, but there are other shorter trails in the area to find.

    Head a little way west of Melville to Woodbury and you will come across the Trail View State Park. The 454-acre, 7.4 mile-long area is a popular place for hiking, allowing you and your on-lead pup the opportunity to escape suburbia amongst some beautiful woodlands. If you are hungry after your walk, head to Dugan’s Sandwich Shop for a fresh bit to eat with your pup alongside you at one of the outside tables. Nearby, Red Mango serve up delicious sweets of frozen yogurt, sorbets, smoothies and juices, and you can sit with your dog outside. It’s the perfect way to end the day!

This multi-use trail is part of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy and links up to the wider Nassau-Suffolk Greenbelt Trail. Within the Bethpage State Park, there are playgrounds for the human kids and plenty of open space for a game of catch. Or you and your pup can just relax on the grass together for a bite to eat. Bring your water bottles and Fido’s drinking bowl here, and remember to pack some clean up bags as well.

The entire preserve is 813-acres and in total has more than 23.5 miles of trails and roads. Your dog needs to stay on a lead through here and always clean up after him. There aren’t any amenities out here, so come prepared with any food you might like and plenty of water for you both. You will need a free permit to visit this area from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
