“Taking care of your dog needs, one walk at a time”
Hi there! My name is Tom Gonzales, I am 23 years old. I am a Penn State graduate, and currently pursuing a medical degree at Geisinger Medical School. I adore dogs and what better way to earn some extra money and spending some time with some pups!

Hi, I'm Carissa! I've got two dogs of my own who recently took the journey with me to start a new life in the area. I believe my animal experience is taken with much comfort, respect, and love. Change is a challenge, but I have what it takes to cater to needs. I have experience with dogs of all sizes, ages and absolutely love meeting new ones. I'm a very active person who hikes, does yoga, and meditates daily. I will make sure your pup is taken care of and experience is as positive as possible!
Dog Walking in Kingston
Kick off your visit to Kingston with breakfast or lunch at Pierce Street Deli, where delicious hot paninis or breakfasts are served to outdoor benches and tables.
The Kingston Neighborhood Park is as charming as its name. This little park is tucked into a residential neighborhood, and is a great place to take your dog on a walk. With an active playground and large grassy space, you have room to exercise shy dogs while giving their more social counterparts plenty to look at!
Need even more room? Church Street Park is a much larger park. It has full sized soccer fields, basketball courts, and tennis courts. There's also picnic tables! If you have a whole crew to keep entertained, go to Church Street Park whether they're 8 or 80... or counting in dog years!
Kingston is a furrific vacation spot for your whole pack, whether puppy or people!
Best Dog Neighborhoods in Kingston
Nesbitt Park in Kingston offers fantastic views of the water, a scenic wooded trail, and plenty of places to stop along the way! Leash up your dog and head deep into this park. The boat ramp is always a flurry of activity, sure to fascinate a people-oriented dog. You can walk along the Sesquehanna River in either direction. The trail leads through to the Forty Fort Dike Trail on one side and Kirby Park (located in neighboring Wilkes-Barre!) on the other. Any of the benches scattered through this park would be a great place to take a load off and enjoy the famous river view.
The Parsons neighborhood of Wilkes-Barre is home to two great parks. Hollenback Park is sure to please a crowd, because they have a lot going on! You can play through a nine hole golf course! You can also check out the covered picnic areas, playgrounds, and sports fields. Leash up your pup to explore the best this area has to offer! Scouton Lee Park is a slightly smaller option that you may prefer if your dog doesn't love crowds. Scouton Lee has a playground and sports fields, but at off peak hours it's much less crowded! Your dog should be leashed in either park.
The John J. Hopkins Memorial Park is more than worth the four minute drive from Kingston to Edwardsville! This large park is often home to community events, so check online if you know your dog would hate to get caught in a crowd. Whenever it's not hosting a fair or festival, the John J. Hopkins Memorial Park has plenty of room. It has a playground, sports fields, and a picnic area. It also has regular open space. Your leashed dog could explore the trails under the trees, or decide it's a great day to lounge on the grass. Just bring a doggie bowl for water!
The edge of downtown Wilkes-Barre is only three minutes from the heart of Kingston. Kirby Park is right on that line, so close that many visitors don't even realize they've left Kingston! Kirby Park is a destination in its own right, because this park is 55 acres of gorgeous land. There's a large pond that makes an excellent backdrop. Much of the land is wooded, so although there is a sports center and a playground in Kirby Park, you wouldn't know it if you don't seek them out. Get your dog on leash and follow the trails through these 55 acres of preserved nature right at the edge of Downtown Wilkes-Barre.
Nine minutes from Kingston is the Coal Street Park, a large and recently renovated community park. The focus here is on fitness. There's a playground with climbing structures, and a lot of area given to sports, with full tennis and basketball courts in addition to the grassy fields. Where your dog cashes in is on the paths. Coal Street Park has paved walking paths that run through and around the park. Stick to the paths to weave your way through this large park and you'll get a complete tour of the area. Stop at any of the benches along the way!
