Wag! Walkers know New York

It's a dog's life living in the Big Apple, and even though many may not think of this city as a dog's paradise, dog walking in New York, New York can bring you and your pup to all kinds of incredible places and green oases in the big city. Of course, people are familiar with Central Park, with its miles of paved trails and big groves of trees, but there are many other spots to explore that will make your pup jump with excitement.

Another benefit of having dogs in New York is that you are surrounded by hundreds of other like-minded folks. Because of this, there are numerous dog parks perfect for any kind of dog. There are even parks for big dogs and small dogs so no one feels too intimidated. New York also has lots of dog-friendly establishments where you can enjoy a cold beverage while your dog has a water dish.

What is the terrain like in New York?

New York is mostly flat, so you don't have to worry about climbing heart-pounding hills like some other cities, and the terrain is incredibly diverse. You can find paved pathways through parks along with beautiful well-kept grassy areas to walk or rest on after a walk. There are gravel areas and even fountains and kiddie pools for your pup to cool off in the summer.

All around the city you can find enclaves just for dogs to run and play with benches for you to sit and enjoy. There are outdoor sculpture parks you can walk through to show your pup (or yourself) some culture. You can walk on paths through old groves of trees and find respite from the hustle of the city while walking on a smooth and paved path. Make sure you plan ahead for any new excursion so you know where to go and what the local dog rules are.

How many greenways are there in New York?

There are too many of these dog-friendly urban greenspaces to talk about here, but there are a few areas worth mentioning that are lesser known than Central Park. If you're in Brooklyn, check out the Hillside off-leash dog park and run. This totally fenced area has wood chips, grass, and dirt and plenty of trees for shade. There is also a kiddie pool for your pup to splash in during the dog days of summer. 

For a totally different experience, head to the South Street Seaport for a walk along the shore with your salty dog. This is an on-leash area, but the neighborhood is very dog-friendly. After walking along the historic waterfront, you can enjoy some food or a libation (while your pup has some water) at one of the many dog-friendly breweries and restaurants. There is nothing better than walking along the water and then sitting on a porch enjoying a treat with your pup.
