Hi, my name is Judy. I have always had a dog in my life. My dogs and I have attended many obedience classes where I learned a lot! I love animals and am a docent volunteer at the Buffalo Zoo. I worked full time retail for many years so I know how difficult it can be for pets and owners who work. Walking with Wag has been a great experience and I love spending time with my furry friends!

Hi! I'm Jeff. I have loved dogs my entire life. From loving our family dog as a child, to being a loving adult owner, they have always had a big place in my life. I have been walking, and sitting, dogs for several years. It started out as just helping friends, and turned into a part-time passion. I have experience with many types of breeds, from small puppies to large senior dogs. I can handle any type of temperament a dog may have. They all deserve the same amount of love, and companionship. I take care of every dog like it is my own. Nothing can make a day better than to be greeted by a happy dog at home.

I’ve been taking care of my australian shepherd, Kolby for almost my whole life. I’ve also pet sat for friends and family occasionally for the past 4 years. I volunteered at the SPCA for a year where I walked and fed the dogs. I just love being around dogs and they usually enjoy my company too.

I have had, and have loved dogs literally since birth! From that first beagle to my current Shepherd-pit mix Kerry, I take pride in my responsibility in feeding, walking, medicating, exercising, playing, and in being affectionate with my dogs(all rescues). I develop a bond with my dogs (and cats too) because I care for them, and they provide unconditional love. I understand signals dogs give through their fur and facial expressions so that every walk is safe. That is my utmost priority. If I should be fortunate to be selected to walk your dog, I will consider him or her as part of my pack!

Dog Walking in Tonawanda

The name of this New York town comes from the word Tahnawá teh, which means "confluent stream" in the Tuscarora language. A not-so-fun fact about this town is that it's the birthplace of Richard Matt, a famous serial killer who performed one of the most elaborate prison escapes from a maximum security prison.

When it comes to dogs, Tonawanda is incredibly welcoming of our canine buddies. The city has five veterinary hospitals that will be there for your pup if he needs medical assistance. If you like your barbecue Deep Purple style, head to Smoke on the Water, where pups are welcome! Another dog-friendly place in town is the Raintree Bar and Grill. If you and your pup are sports fans, check out the local Buffalo Wild Wings. 

The only place in Tonawanda where you can stay with your pup, other than the Airbnb rentals, is the Econo Lodge Tonawanda. For more choices, you should head to Buffalo or Niagara Falls. Tonawanda is only 10 miles from Buffalo and 17 miles away from the infamous Niagara Falls.

Right outside of Tonawanda, you'll find a furrific island park which has gone to the dogs (we mean that in the best way pawssible, of course.) Another place that's absolutely worth seeing is the South Grand Island Bridge.

You'd be barking mad to miss out on everything Tonawanda has to offer!

Tonawanda has its own little island that's designated for pups! This island-slash-park is called Ellicott Island Park, and it's located east of Tonawanda, smack dab in the middle of the creek. Puppies are allowed to be off-leash on this cute little island, and although the park is not fenced, it is surrounded by water on all sides. The island is pretty spacious, and dog baggies and fresh water are both provided. There is a washing station, picnic tables, restrooms and even a little outdoor library so you can pass the time while your pup plays! The luscious trees and the beaches where pups can swim their hearts out are both a huge plus!

Twelve miles away from Tonawanda, up the Niagara River, you'll find another great place to take your four-legged buddy -- Niagara Falls State Park. If you're planning to visit the famous Niagara Falls, you can bring your dog with you, since all the paths and trails are dog-friendly. Your pup has to be leashed and vaccinated to join you here. There are no baggies or water provided along the way, so make sure bring some with you. Dogs aren't allowed inside any buildings or attractions. There are lots of benches along the way, as well as scenic views that will take your breath away!

If you prefer more classical dog parks in terms of secure fencing and separate areas for small and large dogs, we recommend that you head to The Paw Park. You can find this park in Swormville, around 12 miles from Tonawanda. The separate areas are reserved for dogs under and over 30 lbs. This park is funded entirely by donations, and the local community works hard to maintain it, so clean up after your pup, and consider donating to keep this spot open for years to come! The ground is mostly grass, and there are benches for the comfort of the dog owners. Water is provided as well as water bowls.

Knox Farm State Park is around 28 miles from Tonawanda. If you visit this furrific state park, you have two options; you can either walk your leashed pup on the trails, or you can let Fido off-leash in the fenced area. One person is allowed to bring no more than two dogs to play in the fenced area. If you have a smaller pup, don't worry; there is a separate area designated for small dogs. A water hose and multiple buckets provide the park with water. The trails feature a variety of terrain, and you should keep in mind that horses are allowed to use them as well.

If you head to First Ward in Buffalo, you can visit the Wilkeson Pointe Park, which is just 13 miles from Tonawanda. Doggies have to be leashed and, as such, they are allowed on the walking paths in the park. Officially, dogs are not allowed on the beaches, but it is common practice for the local dog owners to bring their dogs with them even on the beaches. Free parking, boating, kayaking, and picnic tables are just some of the reasons that you should check out this park. You can rent bikes and kayaks here, or just sit back and enjoy the scenic views!
