I've always lived with dogs in my home and I finally got a dog of my own. I take care of my 3 year old eskie. I've worked at a pet store taking care of the puppies and I've had experience at a doggie daycare/boarding center. Lots of fun!

1808 seems like so long ago. To the people that moved to Middleport, New York, it was probably unimaginable that their small settlement would become an important place to meet people, exchange ideas, and purchase goods. It must have been a sight of wonder to watch as the Erie Canal was formed. Yet, that is exactly what happened. The city grew and strengthened until it became what it is today. You may think that it is strategically placed right between Buffalo, Niagara, and Rochester, but in honesty, these were not quite thought at the time. Some of the things that brought people to this area are the same things that will draw you to the city as well.
If you and your pup want to take in some history, the very first thing you should do is go to Town Hall. There is a map of the path that you can walk to see the historic city, from the clock tower to the very spot where President Roosevelt pronounced Middleport to be a "friendly city". Stop by the local vet's office when your dog needs some medical attention, or if you need advice on the dog-friendly amenities within the city and nearby.
If you and your pup are art lovers, then you should definitely take a walk along the Niagara Art Trail. This is where local artists can showcase their unique works of art. It is a fun experience where your dog can join you, as long as they are on a leash.
In just about five minutes, you can get to Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge. Here, you can fish, boat, and picnic. Bring your dog's leash and grab a map of the trail system. There are miles and miles of paths to explore and learn about. You can even take a nature class or two. All the outdoor classes allow dogs on leashes. There are restrooms and water fountains at the check-in area, but you will want to carry your own while you are on the trails. This is the pawfect place for a fun-filled day out in nature with the whole family!
Just past Middleport, about ten miles away, you will find Oak Orchard and Towanda Swap Area. This is a dog-friendly hunting area that allows trained dogs off of their leash. While you can hunt, there are other things you can do as well. You can also join a conservation class, take a photography class, or even just walk the open trails. The trails system has open sections that interchange with the hunting season so that everyone is kept safe. You will need to check in at the front and register your visit and your dog. This is for the protection of you and your dog. Please carry your own water, and bring a camera to capture the beautiful views! All dogs must have a leash, even if they are approved to be off -leash.
Village Parks is an area that, as you might've guessed, has several parks within it. Margaret Droman Park has picnic tables and pavilions for gatherings and is located at the northern end of the canal. The south canal area has a playground, hook-ups for RVs, and public bathrooms. The Memorial Walkway and Monument is in the middle and commemorates the firemen and police officers as well as fallen soldiers. Middleport Rotary Park has a place to play horseshoes as well as picnic tables and play areas. Of course, you and your dog could just walk the town path and learn more about the city's history.
The Erie Canalway Trail, as its name implies, follows along the Erie Canal. It is a 360-mile trail that cuts across upper New York. After this former rail line was discontinued, the spot became controversial; there were many disagreements over who should be allowed to use the former rail line and what it should be used for. That is why the Rails-to-Trails team stepped up and took this piece of history and made it usable once again. As you're taking a leisurely stroll with your leashed pup, you can enjoy the same views that have been around since the early 1800s. It is breathtaking to imagine!
Alternative Grounds Coffeehouse allows you to bring your pup with you to enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch, or just a great cup of coffee. They have six outdoor tables that are not only pet-friendly but also allow you to take in the city while you sip your coffee. You will love the relaxed atmosphere almost as much as you will love the food. The turkey deluxe wrap is a local favorite because it is made fresh and perfectly melds your favorite additions like bacon and crispy onions. Please remember that your dog needs to be on a leash while you are here.
