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’m Elaine, and I’m a friend to all the dogs! It seems everywhere I go, I’ll meet a dog that’ll want me to pet and play, and I’ll always happily oblige - it’s one of my favorite things in the world. Because I’m a flight attendant, I travel too often to have my own dog, so I am thrilled to be able to spend time with yours!

“Your dog’s safety is my priority!”

Hi! My name is Aena and I am a student at American University. I’m 19 years old and I absolutely LOVE dogs! Ever since a very young age, I’ve pleaded with my parents to get a dog and they haven’t allowed me to, so I found dog walking and dog sitting. It has been an amazing experience and satisfies my dream of having a dog. I am so excited to meet and take good care of your wonderful dog(s)!

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!

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!

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!

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!
