Hi there, Christopher here. For the past 14 years I've had the pleasure and unforgettable experience of taking care of two puffballs. As I'm sure you already know, it's something quite special and unique. So if you would kindly allow me the opportunity, I'd very much like to meet your own furry friend. I promise to be responsible and give them a fun and healthy walk. See you soon!

“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!

I have been a dog lover and dog owner my entire life. I am a retired school administrator after working with students on the middle and high school levels for thirty nine years. A dogs walk should always be an adventure! The walk should include all of the factors that increase positive sense of self, interaction with the surrounding environment, building focus and increased social skills, extensive use of senses, and at least one mile of exercise to increase fitness and a strong heart.

Dog Walking in Ocean Beach

The village of Ocean Beach is a community within the 32-mile barrier island of Fire Island in New York. Just one quarter mile wide, this village lies between the Great South Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Unique to this water paradise community is its old-world charm. No cars drive on the island, and both residents and visitors take care of their daily errands on foot! 

Taking a ferry is the best way to access the island from Bayshore port, across the bay. The ferry is dog-friendly, so pack a bag with food and water and head over to Ocean Beach for the day. Here you will find the Fire Island National Seashore. Dogs are welcome on all beaches in the adjacent communities, like Fair Harbor, Seaview and Cornelle Estates, but not directly on the Ocean Beach beachfront.

While in Ocean Beach, take a stroll through the village for some exceptional window shopping in the area’s largest commercial district. Dogs must be on leash and clean up stations are provided. According to state law, the many restaurants of Ocea Beach cannot accommodate dogs, even at their outdoor patio dining tables, so plan accordingly. Dog-friendly water taxis can also take you sightseeing along the shoreline with your pup.

The park also offers a water fountain specifically for dogs and a waste station. Hungry? Stop at Tula Kitchen for vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. Craving meat? Then try Local Burger which serves house-smoked BBQ and homemade milkshakes. Dogs are welcome at both at their outdoor tables.

Afterwards, take walking paths to the bayside beaches and park boardwalks where pups are always welcome, or visit the ocean beaches between Labor Day and March 15th.  No restaurants allow dogs, so pack a picnic, snacks, plenty of water and clean up bags. Surf’s up!

The Point O’Woods community is very small, and is mostly made up of the National Seashore National Park. Grab your pawtastic friend for a 30-minute ferry ride from Sayville, just across the bay to access this dog-friendly community. Just east of Point O’Woods boasts a 50-acre tract of beach, beautiful sand dunes, and a stunning elevated boardwalk through the forest in the Sunken Forest Preserve. Restrooms and water are available, but bring clean up bags to keep this area pristine. No restaurants here offer dog-friendly dining, so be sure to bring a picnic lunch, snacks and water to enjoy a day at the beach.

Kismet is a small hamlet just west of Ocean City on Fire Island.  Accessed by the bay ferry, Fido and Fifi are welcome on-leash on this community’s beaches, but bring food and water as restaurants do not allow dogs. A short walk from Kismet, you will find the Robert Moses State Park with a total of 875 acres and five long miles of beach to roam.  Pets are allowed in this beautiful state park between Labor Day and March 15th. Take the ferry from Bayshore, and either walk to the park or take a ferry.  Both gladly welcome dogs on leashes.
