I doubt you're ever gonna find anyone who loves dogs more than I do. I've lived with dogs my whole life, walked at least 100 of my friends dogs, read dog books, volunteered at the Humane society in Hawaii, donate to ASPCA monthly, and just love them like crazy. I'm used to walking between 35.000 to 45.000 steps a day and can't wait to start walking your little one.

Hi there. My name is Dan. I go to school at GW, and I'm looking to walk some local pooches to help pay for school. I'm new to the world of professional pet care, but I'm no stranger to caring for dogs. I have a basset hound mix named Bon Bon back home (who I miss like crazy) that I've loved and cared for the past 8 years. I've also had experience sitting and walking dogs for neighbors and relatives. I look forward to getting out to meet some new pups and brighten their days.

I'm great with dogs! I've walked and dog sat for friends and family over the years and volunteered in animal shelters, and want to pass on my experience and love to your dog. I'll make sure your dog has a fun walk, and gets his or her, ahem, 'business' done. I'm sure I'll love your dog and they'll love me (but if they don't, no worries, they're still a good dog)!

Hi there! My name is William, I'm from Syracuse, NY and I love dogs! My mother adopted Pitbulls, Poodles, Beagles, Irish terriers, and Dobermans so from very early on I knew how to properly care for a canine friend. When I was in high school my mother tasked me with walking and feeding our dogs immediately after I got out of school. Since I have cared for dogs of all varying sizes and breeds I am familiar with all sorts of harnesses and collars. I'm always trying to give my clients the best experience so I'm currently working on becoming certified in pet CPR. Hope I can meet you or your furry amigo soon! Thanks!

Dog Walking in Oceanside

Oceanside, NY is an excellent town for dog-lovers. After the massive housing boom and influx of people following World War II, the area changed from a swamp into a populated hamlet. As numbers of residents increased, that hamlet has also grown to love its resident dogs. With three animal hospitals, it becomes apparent that Oceanside is a dog-friendly town.

This ocean city does offer dog-friendly places too, especially at the Oceanside Park. The park is over 20 acres of pawtastic outdoor space, filled with recreational fields, open plains, wooded areas, and paved trails that your pup is just itching to explore. Dogs have access to water, shade and all spaces in the park as long as they remain on-leash. Inside of Oceanside Park, there is an entrance in the back of the park along the coast with trails that lead to the rocky beach The beach and water are dog-friendly and just waiting for your pup to splash in!

The town not only house parks, but has plenty of dog-friendly restaurants to visit. Brasserie Persil offers Italian fare with outdoor, dog-friendly seating and complimentary water. The Ralph's Famous Italian Ices Stand also boasts outdoor seating where you can get a plain Italian ice treat for your furtastic pup.

Southern Oceanside

The Southern Oceanside neighborhood, and most of Oceanside, NY, was once made up of swamplands, but during the early nineteenth century, the area was drained. Today, the Marine Nature Study Area is a preserve that helps to keep the remaining swampland intact. The preserve is dog-friendly, but dogs must remain on a leash that's 6 feet or shorter at all times within its borders. It's a small price to pay for access to the long trail that winds through the preserve, as well as other nature trails and metal paths that are elevated above the swamplands. Travel far enough, and you'll find a trail leading to a dog-friendly beach, where Fido can enjoy some time in the sun and water. Humans must come prepared with clean-up bags and water before entering the preserve.

The East Rockaway Village Center neighborhood is the westside neighbor of Oceanside, and only .5-miles away in the town of East Rockaway. With two different dog parks, it's sure to become a favorite area for your pup. East Rockaway Bay Bark Park is a dog run with two separate areas for larger and smaller dogs, both with double gated fences, clean-up stations, and water fountains, and is located near the ballfield of Bay Park. To the north, you'll find a second dog park, the Bay Park Dog Park. This pawsome find features a vast fenced-in area for off-leash play, with a mixture of grass and sand terrain, and little pools for dogs to play in. Owners have benches to sit on and clean-up stations to use when needed.

They are welcome to play fetch or to run around in the open fields or take a nature hike into the woods around the pond. There are benches and trash bins provided by the park.

The Baldwin Harbor neighborhood is across the Parsonage Cove from Oceanside in the town of Baldwin. Only two miles away, Baldwin Park provides an out-of-town activity for dog-lovers that still sits close to home. The park is over 35 acres of land with recreational areas, ballfields, and soccer fields. The dog-friendly place has about a mile and a half of walking trails which allows all leashed-dogs to get the exercise they need. Heading south into the paths leads outside the park and into the Baldwin Harbor swamps and beach, a dog-friendly area that allows Fido some time in the water and stretches his fins.
