Hi there, Christopher here. For the past 14 years I've had the pleasure and unforgettable experience of taking care of two puffballs. As I'm sure you already know, it's something quite special and unique. So if you would kindly allow me the opportunity, I'd very much like to meet your own furry friend. I promise to be responsible and give them a fun and healthy walk. See you soon!

“Walkin’ Rover all over!”

I walk my dogs every day, and in the 18 years that I have owned dogs, this has been my daily routine and joy. I personally trained my dogs to walk well on a leash. One of my dogs was two years old when I adopted him, and he was never trained to walk on a leash before. Now he loves to go on walks with his family. I would be an excellent walker for another dog owner. I am very reliable and responsible, and I treat my canine friends with kindness, respect, and love.

“It’s all about your pooch!!”

Hi there! I’ve been a dog lover since childhood. I grew up with a terrier mix. I continued on to eventually add a black lab rescue to my family as we already had our family dog which was a Rescue. My last two dogs were both senior‘s. With some thought I decided to start my own Dog care business. I’d be honored to give your pup the special attention they deserve for our walk!

“Dog Tested, Owner Approved”

As a child, I was firmly a cat person and thought dogs were terrifying - but then we got one! Marla helped show me that the line between cat and dog lovers is meant to be blurred. While cats are still the only animal I have tattooed on my skin, the many dogs I've taken care of will always have a special place in my heart. But don't worry, there's still plenty of room left for your furry buddy too!

Dog Walking in Smithtown

Legend has it that the town of Smithtown, NY was created in 1665 when Richard Smith rode a bull around the area for an entire day, marking what land was his after the Native American chief of the area granted it to him for saving his daughter. Although this is just a legend, dog-lovers will be thanking Mr. Smith, as the region within town limits offers over 700 acres in dog-friendly parks. With five animal hospitals, Smithtown definitely is a place for pups!

For some pawsome outdoor fun, the Blydenburgh Dog Park is a beautiful 2-acre, fenced-in area centered on a hilly landscape, with open fields and surrounding oak trees. Separate areas are offered for smaller and larger dogs to play off-leash, and both are double-gated and offer water fountains and clean-up stations. The park is open year-round from 8 AM to sunset, and is the best place to let your dog go mutts!

Another promising attraction in the town is the Stump Pond Loop Trail, a 4.5-mile trail open to leashed-dogs that offer scenic views of the river and up to 2 hours of outdoor walking for you and Fido. Owners will have to come prepared though with clean-up bags and water. Whether you're visiting or living, you and Fido won't find any better place for some great outdoor adventures.
