Hi, I'm Catherine. I grew up in upstate New York with a golden retriever named Snickers and loved taking him on long walks, runs (sometimes), and adventures (all the time). I genuinely enjoy spending time with dogs and showing them patience, care, and a fun time! I'm very active and when I'm not walking your furry pal, I'm likely running or weight training. I would love to help keep your dog healthy, fit, and happy! I'm disciplined and responsible. I want to provide you and your dog the best experience with Wag! and give you peace of mind knowing your dog is in good hands.

Hi! I’m Kerri, and I’m currently a college student in New York. I have my own dog, Arnie, who I walk and care for every day. Since joining Wag, I’ve walked energetic puppies and lazy bulldogs, a great dane and tiny senior dogs. On my own, I walk very fast, but my own dog loves to take her time and sniff everything so I can accommodate either. I also just love dogs and would love to meet yours!

Dog Walking in New Hartford

Upstate New York is home to an abundance of Colonial towns like New Hartford, where you can still experience the historical atmosphere of one of the first originally settled colonies mixed with the progress of technology.  Both human and furry visitors to this old-fashioned city can spend days on end exploring everything New Hartford has to offer, starting by checking in to one of the local Air BnB's or the pet-friendly Holiday Inn or TownePlace Suites by Marriott, where for a small fee you can bring multiple pets, and big dogs are welcome.  New Hartford and the surrounding cities are located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, so nature here is often scenic and breathtaking.  

Although the town definitely has that old-style atmosphere that attracts visitors looking to soak up the culture and history, the two vet clinics available to Fido in case of emergencies on your trip are state-of-the-art and completely modern.  

When you get hungry, you can head out a few miles in any direction and stop by the local Tony's Pizzeria and Deli or upstate's own Nicky Doodles to fill both your and Fido's tummies while you enjoy the view of the mountain areas as you eat at one of their outside tables.

Exploring the cultural significance and history of New Hartford is all well and good for you, but sometimes Fido is just going to want to play and run off some energy.  Luckily, New Hartford has provided a dog park for exactly that purpose! On Route 12, you will find the Sherrill Brook Park.  This park has miles of fully marked hiking trails for you and your dogs to explore, as well as a designated dog run just for our furry friends!  These wide-open expanses of lawn are perfect for playing frisbee with Fido or relaxing and enjoying a picnic while you inhale the fresh mountain air.

When you are ready to explore outside of New Hartford, there are multiple other cities in the surrounding Oneida County.  Visitors looking to experience the majestic wonders of the Adirondack Mountain's waterfalls can take a ten-minute drive to Utica, where the Tassel Hill State Forest is located. 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.  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.

In addition to New Hartford's dog park, central New York offers more for Fido just fifteen miles down the road in Rome.  If you are looking for a pawesome place to let your four-legged friends roam free, check out the Rome Bark Park.  Visitors should know ahead of time that, to access the park, you will need to apply for a permit.  Once you are approved, you will be given a key to access the park during the established hours. Bring a leash, as is the rule, and only two dogs per owner are allowed. No more than fifteen dogs total at a time can be on the property.  When you are inside the fenced-in area, your pups are allowed to run free and enjoy the playground!

For those who want to get out and experience more of the glories of the Adirondack Mountains, Delta Lake State Park is an excellent place for dogs to play.  The park is located on a peninsula extending into Delta Reservoir, with flat, wooded areas.  Visitors can enjoy the many hiking and nature trails and then picnic in the pavilion areas. Household pets are allowed, but they must be caged or on a leash, not more than 6 feet long.  However, they are not allowed in the bathing areas but you can take them through the rest of the park and explore.

An often overlooked park in Oneida County is the Lock 20 Canal State Park, found in Marcy, just eleven miles outside of New Hartford.  This beautiful area is the perfect place to bring Fido for a picnic or just to watch the boats go through the canal locks, which is something most people never get to see. The Lock 20 Canal State Park is always clean and full 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.
