“Walkin’ Rover all over!”

I walk my dogs every day, and in the 18 years that I have owned dogs, this has been my daily routine and joy. I personally trained my dogs to walk well on a leash. One of my dogs was two years old when I adopted him, and he was never trained to walk on a leash before. Now he loves to go on walks with his family. I would be an excellent walker for another dog owner. I am very reliable and responsible, and I treat my canine friends with kindness, respect, and love.

Hi there, Christopher here. For the past 14 years I've had the pleasure and unforgettable experience of taking care of two puffballs. As I'm sure you already know, it's something quite special and unique. So if you would kindly allow me the opportunity, I'd very much like to meet your own furry friend. I promise to be responsible and give them a fun and healthy walk. See you soon!

“I hope I can make your day less stressful :)”

Hello, my name is Jazel and I've taken care of all types of animals like guinea pigs, bearded dragons, fish, birds, cats, and dogs. I love them all and like to care for them. I have experience in taking dogs out, cleaning up after them, play time, and cleaning the rooms they stay in. I also make sure their food diet is what they are eating. I help out my older sister with her five dogs when I’m not working and cuddle with my cats.

“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 West Islip

West Islip is a hamlet in the town of Islip on Long Island. The area has had quite a diverse past. Originally settled by the Secatogue people, the area was later under Dutch, and then English rule, before being purchased by Thomas and William Willetts. Ukranian settlers, seeking relief from political repression and economic hardship, came in the early 20th century, and their heritage is still present in the community. This quiet community also supports its furry friends with three veterinarians and clinics ready to respond when Fido is not feeling well.

Visit the Gardiner County Park, a great place to bask in the natural beauty while your pup enjoys his leashed walk on the mile-long path from the parking lot to the beach. Although Gardiner is not a dog park, most of its visitors are people walking their dogs. There’s a superb view of the Robert Moses bridge that is particularly striking at sunset. The park offers a public water spout for dogs to drink from, or for you to wash off the sand.

When hunger calls, head to the Cafe Europa. This pawsome eatery welcomes pups at their outdoor tables whenever the weather is nice. Enjoy your time in West Islip where the water and land meet in beautiful places.

Parkway Lawns Park, a small plot of land often referred to as 'The Bar-X,' was formerly a horse riding stable and dude ranch by the same name. Fido will enjoy a snifftastic walk through the wide-open spaces of this now public park. A chance game of fetch or Frisbee is pawsome good fun! Your pup will love a leashed stroll around the park tree line where he’ll yelp with delight as he catches sight of a squirrel scampering up a tree trunk. Check out the dogtastic lake in the park, a great place for your pup to get a drink or take a quick dip on a hot summer's day.

The West Islip Town Beach is a little cove behind the Good Samaritan Hospital known only by locals. You and your pup will enjoy the small beach that provides a quiet place to enjoy a leashed walk along the water. Fido will enjoy exploring at water’s edge and following dogtastic adventures among the flotsam and jetsam on shore. Bring along a picnic and enjoy the wooden chairs and picnic tables in both the covered area and out in the sunshine. Sometimes an ice cream truck parks nearby for a special afternoon treat. The West Islip Marina is nearby, and offers a beautiful view of the Great South Bay.

Just three miles from West Islip in Bayshore, you will find the Anthony Casamento Park. Grab your leash and your walking shoes, and go for a little exercise and fresh air where the open space is plentiful for some playtime and fetching. If your pup likes to catch, he’ll enjoy you bouncing some tennis balls off the outdoor handball walls. The wide-open space makes it easy to get in a leashed walk on the grassy area, but there’s also trees encircling the park. Your pooch will enjoy a sniff-tastic route near the tree line as he explores sounds of the small wildlife living there. The park is also well lit at night, making it a good option for those later walkers.
