Kissena Park and Cunningham Park border the neighborhood so you have access to great natural exploration right from town. This lovely neighborhood has a small town character with lovely Tudor homes as well as beautiful Dutch colonials.
There is a range of businesses in this area that cater to your dog. Versailles Dog Grooming Palace can have your pup looking their best in no time. If your pooch is in need of instruction, Anthony Jerone’s School of Dog Training will have them behaving in no time.
There is plenty of natural park in and around Auburndale for you to enjoy. A wide variety of parks offer plenty of diversity in exploration for your pup so that they have plenty of confidence-building new experiences as they grow up.
Auburndale is a pleasant neighborhood to traipse with your pooch with the gorgeous architecture and extensive shrubbery and tree cover. There is no divider between sidewalk and road in most areas, and most yards are raised above the sidewalk with brick terraces. Despite this, the wide, planted divider between lanes can make you feel comfortable walking your dog on a loose leash.
This is a lovely area to walk around with your pup, but if you are looking for a change, there are plenty of parks available to explore. Extensive forested areas like the Alley Pond Park and the forested area around Cunningham Park are perfect to expose them to difficult terrain with fallen logs and branches. You can challenge your pooch as much as you are both comfortable with in such an environment. To give your dog gentle exposure to water, try Fort Totten Park which is a lovely peninsula into Little Neck Bay.
Auburndale has plenty of parks around for you and your pooch to explore. Kissena Park offers lovely walking trails through wooded areas, as well as grassy space and a charming little lake. Walking trails wind throughout this park and around game fields.
Alley Pond Park has plenty of winding walking trails through old forest, as well as a little green space. Lots of walking trails enable you and your dog to never retrace your steps as you explore. You can follow this park through the marshland around a little tributary that follows up to the Little Neck Bay. This is a great coastline to explore by canoe or kayak.
For even more diverse exploration, you can travel a bit to Forest Park and nearby Highland Park. So many places to enjoy with your dog will allow you to never have to get into a routine in your daily outings!
