Hello, I am a mom of two & mom of 2 fur babies. The pups are 10 years & 6 years. We have to vary our outings due to different likes. Our oldest has Arthritis & has limited walking capabilities and needs to be lifted in & out of vehicle. The other very prey driven and hyper. He has to stay on leash unless there is a fence or wall at least 7-8 ft tall & hates riding in vehicles. My kids have always called me crazy things like Animal Whisperer because animals tend to gravitate to me.

Hey! Bobby here. I'm a local college student with a flexible schedule. I live with my blue heeler Nala. I consider her part of the family, of course! I grew up with two golden retrievers, Kirby and Cooper. I enjoy walking, I'm as responsible as they come and I love and appreciate time well spent with a dog. I understand it's tough to not always be there for your four-legged family member, so I'd like to help make things easier for owners out there. Excited for this opportunity. Thanks for reading!

“Puppies. Seniors. Special Needs. No problem!”

-I will be wearing a mask- I've had the pleasure of taking care of all sorts of breeds, and special needs pups, young and old. I normally carry some of my own stuff with me, like treats, leads and bags. So if you happen to be missing something, it shouldn't be a problem. I have no problem cleaning up after dogs, and if they need something special, make a note of it, and I'll handle it. I love all dogs.-A little note, because I am a small woman, I do have someone walking with me to be safe.-

Dog Walking in Saratoga Springs

New York is a stylish state, especially close to New York City. However, when you get further upstate to places such as Saratoga Springs, you find a rustic charm that is just begging to be explored by you and your furry friends.

For the adventurous pet owners, try the Saratoga Springs State Park. Even though this park is a popular resort as well, there are still several great jogging and walking trails throughout the park to explore with your pooch. You will definitely enjoy the lush forests and other scenery around the park.

For a fun day out, take your pet to get glamor shots by Glamour Paws. This is a new event in the city, but true to New York style, a really good time. Encapture the beauty of your best friend forever in a pet head shot. Afterward, let them roll around in the dirt to get rid of their clean smell at the Kelly Park Dog Run. This is a small, enclosed dog run to let dogs blow off some steam while meeting new canine companions.

Saratoga Springs offers a fantastic resort to check into during your stay. The Gideon Putnam Resort and Spa welcome you and your pet for a time of relaxation. This lovely resort is surrounded by the rural charm of upstate New York, and they will do everything to make you and your pet feel at home.

There are a couple of choice restaurants that you are more than welcome to have your pet join you at. 5 Points Market and Deli serves delicious custom made sandwiches and Ice House offers tasty American cuisine for the night time meal. Both restaurants allow your pet to dine with you outside on their patios.

Saratoga Springs is a gorgeous city that strives to make not just you, but your pet as well feel spectacularly terrific.

This large neighborhood encloses the top north portion of Saratoga Spa State Park, and stretches all the way up to Skidmore College. Across Route 9 from the State Park is a small dog park near Crescent St, aptly named Dog Park. It features separate fenced in enclosures for large and small dogs, and tables to relax at while your pup plays with his neighborhood pals. There are also trails running behind the park if you and your dog prefer a quiet walk over the hustle and bustle of dog social hour! Do bring your own water and poop bags, as the park does not offer them.
