My current dog is and previous dog was a trained therapy dog with hospice. I volunteered at Lollipop Farm, an amazing animal shelter in Rochester, NY where I worked to help socialize animals through walks and interactions with people and other animals. I adore animals of all types and of course dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds. I also love the outdoors and one of my very favorite things is walking with my dog!

“Must love dogs”

Hi my name is Kris. I’m a NYS retiree looking to fill my free time doing something I love. Someone once said they get along with dogs better than some people. I totally agree, if my dogs don’t like you they may notice something I’ve missed. I’ve owned all kinds of dogs, large and small. Can’t imagine life without multiple dogs. At one time I had 5-a rottie, mastiff, golden retriever and two pugs. If you let me walk your dog you can rest assured he/she will be taken care of as I would my own!

Dog Walking in Syracuse

Within the Syracuse city limits, you’ll find several museums, music and art performances, and over 1,000 acres of parkland. The Department of Parks, Recreation & Youth Programs oversees more than 170 parks and recreational areas, many of which welcome leashed dogs along with visitors.

The Onondaga Lake Park is a popular gathering place for families and friends. Here, four trails offer different views, giving you a unique glimpse of the park each time you visit. Stop by the Salt Museum for a brief history lesson about the city, or else take your pup down to the Shoreline Walking Trail for some fresh air and exercise.

To the north of Onondaga Lake Park, you’ll find the Wegmans Good Dog Park. This 40,000 square foot area is open year round and gives Syracuse’s canine residents a place to run and play safely. The fenced-in space features an obstacle course complete with tunnels and jumps, and benches ring the park both inside and out, providing human guests a place to rest while the dogs romp. A separate area for smaller dogs ensures that all pups can have a good time with dogs they are comfortable around.
