“Exercise is medicine”
I have been a dog owner and caring for other owner's pets for over 10 years. I love dogs and ensuring they have the exercise that they deserve is something that is very important to me. I a bachelor’s degree in exercise physiology and currently am pursuing a degree in physical therapy. I have a passion for helping humans and dogs improve themselves physically and emotionally through physical activity and human interaction. I look forward to meeting your dog!

I have watched one of my neighbor's boxer, and another neighbor's pomeranian every summer growing up. I am a very dedicated worker!
When you want to step back in time, visit Sylvan Beach, a quaint little village in New York with a huge personality. Sylvan Beach is part of Oneida County and has an abundance of history found throughout its campgrounds and even the decades-old, but still popular Sylvan Beach Amusement Park.
Visitors to Sylvan Beach can bring their pets for no fee to the local Cinderella's Suites, located on Main Street in the central part of the village for convenient access. If this hotel is booked or you would prefer different lodgings, there are many other pet-friendly hotels just outside of Sylvan Beach in Oneida County.
After you settle in from your long trip, you and Fido will probably be hungry. No worries -- you don't have to travel far to taste some of the pawsomely delicious ice cream right outside of Cinderella's Suites. Looking for a meal? You and Fido can eat at the outside picnic tables at the Crazy Clam and indulge in their menu of delicious home-cooked meals. Please note that neither place allows outdoor seating for your furred-friends (or you!) in inclement weather for the safety of your pets.
Since Sylvan Beach is such a small village, there are no vet clinics here, but the surrounding towns and cities offer more than ten for you to choose from in close proximity in the event of an emergency.
Two miles from the edge of Sylvan Beach, on the border of the village and the city of Blossvale, is Fish Creek. In this area, you will find plenty of pet-friendly campgrounds with access to Oneida Lake, like the Ta-Ga-Soke Campground. The campground offers cabins and campsites on its 33-acre land, and you and Fido can stay here nightly, for the week, or the month. Visitors can make use of the amenities Ta-Ga-Soke offers, like the playground, lake access, grocery store, and their restaurant, the Bird's Nest Cafe. The cafe serves dinners, pizza, and snack foods, and Sunday morning breakfast buffets that you can Fido can eat on the picnic tables throughout the campground.
Sylvan Beach is a beautiful village to explore, but for those who are ready to venture out further, Oneida County offers more for Fido just ten miles down the road in Rome, New York. If you are looking for a pawesome place to let your four-legged friends roam free, check out the Rome Bark Park. You will need to apply for a permit, so plan ahead, but once you are approved, you will be given a key to access the park during the established hours. Once pets are inside the park, they can run free, but the rule is that you must bring a leash, and only two dogs per owner are allowed.
For those intrepid explorers who want to get out and experience more of the glories of the Adirondack Mountains, Delta Lake State Park is your next destination. Aside from the bathing areas, where pets are not allowed, this state park is an excellent place for dogs to play. Visitors to the park can enjoy the many hiking and nature trails that showcase the beauty of this mountain area. If you are planning to spend the day, pack a lunch so you and Fido can picnic in the pavilion areas. Household pets are allowed, but they must be caged or on a leash, not more than 6 feet long.
Locals and visitors to Rome highly recommend checking out the Erie Canalway Trail. This trail has the official designation of being a National Recreation Trail and is a 36-mile-long route that extends from Dewitt (near Syracuse) to Rome. There is plenty for you and Fido to do along this trail, with multiple opportunities for you both to picnic, canoe, hike, and play in the canal. Dogs are required to be on a leash to be able to walk around the canal, and you must clean up after your pets. With 36 miles of hiking available, you can take as long (or as short) of a walk as you like while you and Fido enjoy the natural wooded terrain and wildlife of upstate New York!
Sylvan Beach and Verona Beach are so closely interconnected that they are often advertised together. Verona Beach is less than two miles down the road, so many people who come to stay in Sylvan Beach end up in Verona naturally. The Verona Beach State Park is perfect for camping and picnicking in the shade with Fido. The "Woods and Wetland" nature trail takes travelers through the diverse habitats of Central New York, and the Black Creek Lake is accessible during certain seasons. Pets must have a current rabies certificate to enter and must be caged or on a leash no longer than six feet.
