Rocky Point is a little-known neighborhood on the North Shore of Long Island, nestled alongside the Long Island Sound. The area is small, but densely populated, which makes it a good choice for those who enjoy bustling neighborhoods. While this particular area does not have its own dedicated dog park, there are quite a few in the nearby neighborhoods, some of which are less than a ten-minute drive away!

Pet parents can also take advantage of the two veterinary services in the immediate area, which can be great for yearly check-ups as well as unexpected emergencies. Most of Rocky Point is engulfed in woodland, which is preserved within the Rocky Point State Pine Barrens Forest. Naturally, there are trails in the forest that allow you to really take in the beauty of the surrounding wilderness. You and your pup can gear up and explore the Rocky Point Trail, which is 6.15 miles of various hiking trails that span throughout the area. Pets are welcome year-round, except for hunting season.

    #1 West Middle Island

    Located just a few miles south of Rocky Point is the hamlet of Middle Island, a small, but densely populated area towards the northern end of Long Island. Middle Island, like Rocky Point, is covered in acres of parkland that can be explored with your pup. For beginners, the Prosser Pines Loop Trail is an easy trail that can be hiked in under an hour. The trail receives its name from the many small, white pine trees that have been thriving on the property since 1759! For everyday fun, try the Middle Island Dog Park, an off-leash park available exclusively for New York residents.

    #2 West Selden

    Located in Long Island is the town of Brookhaven, home to the pawsitively pet-friendly neighborhood of Selden. Thinking about making the move? Take advantage; there are many available apartments in the area that will accommodate your furry family. You can also enjoy the local dog park on Boyle Road, the Selden Dog Park, open statewide to local residents. Your pooch will be sure to enjoy the 57,000 square feet of land with separate fenced areas for large and small dogs. West Selden is further inland, but it’s only a quick 20-minute trip from the shore by Rocky Point.

    #3 Bridgeport

    Known as Port Jeff among the residents of the quaint little waterside town, Bridgeport is the closest to the port itself. Until the 1900s, this area was primarily rural and dependant on shipbuilding, but it has since flourished into a lovely spot for tourists and residents alike. Dogs will enjoy playfully barking at the birds by the port while they join you for a quick bite on the pup-friendly patio at the Portside Grill. Once you’re done, head to Lavender Fields for some shopping – and bring Bruno along, too! The store welcomes well-behaved dogs of all sizes.

    #4 South Haven

    Does your pooch love to run around in big open fields? South Haven is home to the perfect place! Formerly a duck farm, this 2.6-acre dog run is just what your hyper pup needs to help wind down and tire himself out. This “natural borders” park opts for a 4-ft high turkey wire fence and has two separate areas for small and large dogs. You’ll have to bring your own supplies, such as water, treats, and doggie bags, as it doesn’t have many of the amenities of a traditional dog park.

    #5 Smith Point

    All the way on the other side of Long Island, just south of Mastic Beach, is Smith Point. This beachside destination is a much more secluded choice for pets who prefer to enjoy the spoils of the beach to themselves. With a 95% lower population density than the rest of New York, this area is a pristine vacation destination for pups and their parents! In the off-season, you and Fido can explore Otis Pike at Fire Island Trail. There is plenty of wildlife and beautiful scenery to enjoy – just be sure to keep your furry friend securely leashed.
