Greetings, my name is Melissa. I strive to express my love and care for animals and all life through my work as an environmentalist, farmer, and yoga instructor. In particular, I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to connect with dogs as a dog walker, since I am not able to have a pup of my own due to my career and education demands. In turn, I look forward to assisting you in making sure your doggie gets the exercise, fresh air, refreshment and love that he or she needs!

Hi, my name is Kristina, I grew up with dogs being part of my family my whole life. So I know how important your fur child means to you. I just adopted a beautiful Golden Retriever German Shepard mix named Bailey, she just turned 3 on September 8th. I adopted her in November of 2017 from a shelter called Southern Paws who work with many shelters to help give dogs a better chance at having a great life. Becoming part of Wag gave me an opportunity to work with dogs and get them outside to explore the world around them. Walks make dogs happy and stay healthy and that is a big plus for your pet visit. I am not certified in any way expect a certified pet lover and treat giver if that counts. Your Wag Walker, Kristina

Dog Walking in Nassau

Nassau, in upstate New York’s Rensselaer County, has the small town feel that many humans and dogs enjoy. Only 12 miles from both Albany and Poughkeepsie, it is an oasis within the urban areas. What the town lacks in malls and fancy restaurants, it more than makes up for in natural features like parks and trails. 

One of these is the Mud Pond Preserve in Central Nassau. Mud Pond is a peat bog, surrounded by almost 700 acres of forest. The Preserve also features a trail system with 3 loops. Mud Pond Loop is a 0.75 mile trail, Overlook Trail Loop is 0.3 miles where you and your canine companion can view the pond and multiple species of birds, and the Casey Farm Loop. 

Nassau is also one of the towns located on the Rensselaer Plateau, a geological formation covering 105,000 acres with numerous trails, forested lands and lakes. Leashed pets are welcome in most of the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance towns. There is a lot to see and sniff here. Nearby, in Dunham Hollow, is dog-friendly Alps Family Campground. Dogs must be leashed or tied, but they will enjoy sitting by a crackling campfire and sleeping outdoors or in tents with their humans.

Schodack Town Park is in East Schodack, a neighborhood of the Town of Nassau. This woofer-friendly park features trails, open spaces, and a covered pavilion equipped with picnic tables, a large grill, restrooms and some access to electricity. Stroll with your leashed fur-buddy on trails that run alongside streams, over bridges, and through meadows full of wildflowers and wildlife. There are 5 trails under a mile each, along with a 1 ½ mile perimeter trail to explore. The landscape here is dotted with picnic areas, and the Purple Trail affords the hiker and his dog-buddy views of the lower areas of the park. In the southeast corner of the park is a playground for little humans and playing fields for the bigger ones. Dogs are welcome to watch the goings-on in these areas with their human mates, but can’t venture there.

Woofers welcome! Also in this area is the Kinderhook Creek Preserve, which is 85 acres of timberland surrounding the Kinderhook Creek. This preserve features 5 miles of dog-friendly public trails that follow a stone wall, a steep ridge, or down gentle slopes. People and their pups can engage in hikes and rock exploring, along with cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter.

The Village of Nassau is in the southwest corner of the Town of Nassau. A favorite outdoor gathering place for residents and visitors is its Village Commons Park, a small green area with plenty of room for special events like children’s carnivals and concerts. It is also a fine spot for a leashed Fido to spend time outdoors with his humans, on the grass or in the gazebo. Just up the street, close enough for an easy stroll with your canine buddy, is Smile’s Soft Serve Ice Cream with its dog-friendly shaded outdoor picnic area. The list of toppings seems never-ending, but don’t forget to get a bowl of vanilla for your pup!

Three trails offer walking or hiking for almost 3 miles, during which you might see white-tailed deer, bobcat, wild turkey and other birds. In the wetlands and ponds, Fido’s nose may detect traces of otters and great blue herons.

It is a small fenced area where your fur-baby can run free. Dogs must have NY State tags designating state residency, along with the usual license and rabies tags.

There is plenty of open lawn with picnic tables, a covered pavilion and restrooms. Also featured are 3 hiking trails that will take you through wooded lanes, by a waterfall, around a pond and over a wooden bridge. You and your pup will love it.
