I have always had a dog in my family and absolutely love interacting with them. Over the summer I worked at a Non Profit that trained dogs to be service animals for Veterans and I couldn't have had a better experience there. Now, I'm back at school and am missing spending time with the fluffy pooches.

I have been an animal lover my whole life as I am always the person who would stop on the street to pet every dog I see! I have been blessed to have had dogs in my life since childhood and I would love the chance to be your dog walker. I have previously volunteered at Adopt-A-Dog and am currently a dog walker and sitter for two private clients. I believe in caring for your dog as I would if it was your child as I feel that dogs are actually part of the family and deserve to be given tons of love and attention. My personal perspective is ensuring that each and every walk should be a fun and entertaining experience for your four-legged family member :)

Dog Walking in Vernon Center

Vernon Center is a little town nestled in the heart of farm country in upstate New York.  Here, you will find an old-time village created mostly of homes, farms, and buildings from the 19th and 20th centuries.  The pace is slow and the atmosphere is relaxed, and Fido will have plenty of opportunities to explore the countryside.

While Vernon Center, with its population density of 89, does not have any pet-friendly hotels, you can find plenty just outside in the cities of Vernon, Verona, and New Hartford. For your peace of mind, there is a vet clinic just a mile down the road in Vernon.

Right behind the local post office -- hidden from all but the local's eyes -- is Vernon Park, a little hole-in-the-ground with big wonders that await you and Fido.  Here, you can unwind and rejuvenate from your daily stresses in the natural beauty of the upstate mountains.  Right beyond the playground equipment lies miles of majestic trails along a flowing river that leads to multiple scenic shallow waterfalls just waiting for Fido to jump and play in.  Pack a light lunch and some water bottles and a bowl, and stop at one of the benches along the trail to enjoy a picnic.

While you are in Rome, check 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. Along this trail, you'll find opportunities for you and Fido 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.  Parking starts at the old Erie Canal Village, and from there, you can access the beginning of the trail and 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!

Heading east from Vernon Center twelve miles down the turnpike takes you to the city of New Hartford.  When you visit here, be sure to stop at the Sherrill Brook Park, the town's designated nature trail and dog park area for your four-legged children!  This park has an amazing dog run in addition to the playground and pup equipment.  When you are ready to explore, there are miles of nature trails to follow that will take you through the scenic woods that are iconic of central New York's upstate beauty. Before Fido can play, though, you must register them with the city of New Hartford for park access.

Looking for a pawesome place for Fido to play?  Rome, just twelve miles down the road from Vernon Center, has a dog park established for our favorite furry friends, the Rome Bark Park.  To access the park, you will need to apply for a permit, at which time you will be given a key to access the park during the established hours. Only two dogs per owner are allowed, and no more than fifteen dogs total at a time can be on the property.  You will need to have a leash at all times, but once you are inside the fenced-in area, your pups are allowed to run free and enjoy the playground!

Just a few miles outside of Vernon Center is the bigger city of Rome, where central New York's action is.  Multiple pet-friendly hotels are located here, as well as three popular animal clinics.  While you are in Rome, try the pizza that New York is famous for at DiCastro's Brick Oven.  You can sample their extensive menu of steak and seafood while you relax with Fido at one of the many outside dining tables.  If you are looking for casual dining, down the street is Papa Rick's Snack Shack, with pet-friendly outdoor tables and delicious all-American burgers, shakes, subs, and appetizers.

State Route 365 passes through Verona and encompasses the small town's main business areas.  When you and Fido are ready to sit down and enjoy dinner and dessert, you can drive the short eight miles and visit Nicky Doodles.  This fun restaurant is known for its hometown ice cream and fresh, fast food served outside at one of the picnic tables.  You can also visit the Recovery Sports Grill for lunch and dinner options at one of their eleven outside dining tables. This road takes you past the Turning Stone Casino and Resort and other pet-friendly hotels, where dogs are welcome for a small fee.
