Hello! My name is Jonathan Correa. My deep love for animals, dogs in particular flourished when I was very young. At such a young age I had to learn many responsibilities when taking care of a dog. However it was fun because I had my white Labrador who was my best friend to guide me all the way. From cleaning up after him, walking him, feeding him, to later rubbing his belly and ending my nights right next to him! Unfortunately after 13 wonderful years my best friend passed away a few years ago, leaving me alone with that unconditional love that I have for dogs. Shadow taught me many things that I would love to share with you and your dog! A dogs happiness is truly my own happiness.

“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 Walking in Wantagh

Wantagh, New York is a vibrant city in Nassau County widely known for its exuberant nightlife. The party isn’t just limited to the local humans, though; this fast-paced community has plenty of dog-friendly hot spots to check out with your furry companion!

The dog run at the Wantagh community park is a great leash-free space to blow off some steam and make new friends! You don’t have to worry about muddy paws here because the enormous dog enclosure is covered entirely in astroturf! There are usually plenty of tennis balls on-site to enjoy, as well as doggy bags to clean up the less enjoyable aspects of the park. The best part is there are always plenty of fur-iends to play with here — even some doggy internet celebrities have been known to frequent this spot! 

No need to worry about how you'll take care of those hunger pangs after that intense game of fetch. There are three dog-friendly dining options within city limits! For some casual upscale Italian food, paw on over to Umberto's Restaurant & Pizzeria. Grab a pup-friendly seat on the patio and enjoy signature dishes such as chicken cacciatore or veal milanese — just like “Grand-paw” used to make! If you still have room for desert, swing over to the Carvel Ice Cream parlor for a sweet treat that is so doggone good it should be sinful!

Are you looking for a scenic dog-friendly escape from the fast-paced Long Island lifestyle? Look no further than beautiful Gardiner County Park, just a 30-minute drive east of Wantagh -- and you don’t have to set foot off the island! This community park is more like a nature preserve than a recreation area, with tons of trails for your leashed fur-iend to wander, ocean access where he can soothe his tired paws, and panoramic views of the bay! Don’t fret if you accidentally leave your puppy’s beach bag at home -- there are doggie water fountains and waste stations to tend to his every need! The park is near a marsh, so make sure you pack some bug spray.

Your pooch can meander the same trails Teddy Roosevelt loved while learning the history of his “Summer White House” at this home-turned-national-historic-site in Oyster Bay. Only 30-minutes outside of Wantagh, the Sagamore Hill Historic Site is well worth the drive, boasting over 80 acres of beautiful marshland, flora-filled meadows, and fauna-filled forests. Although pets are not allowed in the structures, your pup will be glad to know there is a trail leading straight to the beach where he can enjoy a nice soggy frolic! This tail-wagging good time will have your pup bragging by the community water bowl for weeks to come!

If your dog is craving a place with some variety, be sure to check out the Stump Pond area! There are plenty of options for on- and off-leash fun at the 627-acre Blydenburgh County Park, nestled in the city of Hauppauge. The 2-acre dog run gives small and large dogs their own spaces to whiz around and always has plenty of guests for your dog to befriend! A special pass is required for weekend visits from Memorial Day to Labor Day, so make sure you pick one up if you plan to come during this time. The nearby Stump Pond Loop Trail is a great option for leashed adventures, and makes for an easy hike with stunning views!

High energy puppers agree — the West Hills County Dog Park is the best off-leash spot around! Located on Sweet Hollow Road, 15 miles north of Wantagh, this no-frills park is great for one thing: playtime! There are several benches and picnic tables where owners can sit and watch their pup parade around with his newfound friends, as well as tons of room to toss a frisbee! Smaller dogs (25 lbs. and under) have their own run about a mile away where they can play without the larger breeds cramping their style. Keep the good times rolling with a nice leashed hike down the Walt Whitman Trail. This path can be accessed through the park, making it a convenient stroll for any doggy duo!

Located on Salisbury Park Drive, just 5 miles from Wantagh, is the extremely popular Eisenhower Dog Park. Due to it’s central location, this park is frequented by tons of pups (big and small) from all over Nassau County. The 30 lb. and over side is very spacious and has plenty of room for big dogs to carouse. The smaller side isn’t quite as spacious, but it is still a big hit with the little guys. Doggie waste stations are available for owners to help keep the park in top shape, and there is a water fountain as well (but you may need to bring your own because it isn’t always working!).
