Hello, my name is Emily Carranza. I am currently a senior at Quinnipiac University. I have been walking dogs since I was very young and have trained dogs for many years now. I absolutely love and enjoy getting some exercise in while doing something I love (walking dogs). I will always be attentive and caring of your pups when I take them for walks. I can ensure you that your dog is safe with me and will most likely get spoiled in the process! I promise that your dog will never be disappointed!

I will ask questions if I am not sure and I am big on following instructions and doing things the way they are requested to be done. I am looking to walk dogs and share the love I have for them since I was a child. I enjoy playing and caring for them and one day to even create my own shelter to help rescue dogs. I love all dogs!

My name is Andrew and I am a 26-year-old college educated animal lover who likes to play music and works in the fashion industry. I joined Wag because since I moved out of the house I grew up in, I haven't been able to spend as much time with dogs as I've wanted to. Becoming a Wag dog walker gives me the opportunity to help people with their dogs and spend time with dogs in general. I am a very friendly person and I would love to help you walk your dog!

Dog Walking in Pleasant Valley

Pleasant Valley is a suburban town in Dutchess County on the eastern side of the Hudson River, just 7 miles from the city of Poughkeepsie. Largely a bedroom community with a rural feel, the town is also supported by farming and some lumber industry. It encompasses several dog-friendly hamlets and is surrounded by wildlife refuges and state forests. Pleasant Valley is an ideal spot for dog lovers and their canine buddies to live or visit.

One of these dog-friendly parks is the Taconic Hereford Multiple Use Area, with its 917 acres of activity-oriented wildlife refuge. Home to deer, turkey, waterfowl and small mammals, it features woodlands with trails on former logging roads, along with some paved roads for the use of wheelchairs and other non-motorized vehicles. Hikers and dog walkers have access to 23 miles of trails where fur-pups can be let off-leash. Pawrrific! Primitive camping sites are available, and anyone can camp anywhere at least 150 feet from a road. Open year round, the park provides groomed trails for snowmobiling, and snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and horseback riding are permitted although trails aren’t groomed for these specific activities. Be aware that hunting and trapping are permitted in season, so if you are visiting Taconic Hereford during that time, be sure to outfit yourself and Fido in blaze orange! Woof!

Whatever your plans, Pleasant Valley will please you and your furry bestie with its pet-friendly activities and places!

This neighborhood also hosts the dog-friendly Cady Recreation Park, which consists of ball fields and a picnic pavilion, along with launch areas for canoe and kayak access to Wappingers Creek, which the park bisects. The grounds are grassy and feature shade trees and flowers, making this a pleasant place to walk with your fur-baby, or to down a blanket and have a nap. Lastly, you’ll find Bower Park in the Town Center neighborhood as well. This popular park features almost 2 miles of walking trails on its 20 acres, and access to Wappingers Creek, too. Woofderful!

The Salt Point neighborhood is host to the Helen Aldrich Park, 14 acres consisting of a softball field and basketball court, tennis court and playground for the human members of the family, and a huge open meadow where you and your fur-pup can romp and play. It is not fenced, so your pup must be on leash or good at voice control. After all that play, it might be a good idea to head over to the pavilion for a picnic lunch or dinner. The park has convenient parking, too. This is a family-oriented, activity park and the canine member of the family will certainly have fun here as well!

Poughkeepsie is a mere 8 miles from Pleasant Valley, but you can hike for as long, or as short, as your pup likes.

Freedom Plains is a neighborhood in Poughkeepsie that contains the dog-friendly James Baird State Park, which is located on almost 600 acres of former farmland. There are many activities for humans to enjoy such as golfing on the 18-hole course and playing various sports. For Fido though, the passion is in the wide open green spaces for running and frolicking, and the 7 miles of scenic woodland trails for hiking with his human. In the winter, cross country skiing and snowshoeing are available, too, and Fido can go along on his leash. With 10 conveniently located parking areas near the trails, and 2 comfort stations, this is a must-do for anyone living or visiting the pawrrific Poughkeepsie area!

Peach Hill Park can be found in this Poughkeepsie neighborhood. The park features the highest point in Poughkeepsie with views of the surrounding towns, along with 3.5 miles of walking trails through a former apple orchard over its 160-acre land. The trails traverse wetland, farmland/orchard and local historical sites. Many of the apple trees still flourish here, and you’re invited to bring Fido while you enjoy the fragrant apple blossoms in the spring or pick apples in the fall. Truly a 4-season park, it also features cross country skiing and snowshoeing in winter. Many species of birds are on display year-round, both residents in the park and the twice-a-year migratory ones. This is a peaceful, woofderful, out-of-the-way place for you and your favorite pup to enjoy!
