Locals that walk their dogs in this upstate New York neighborhood will need warm dry outerwear and footwear in the winter. Although this coastal location does not experience temperatures as cold as some inland locations in the state, there is plenty of wet weather and moisture in the air can make cool temperatures more unpleasant. Make sure your dog is comfortable for winter walking too! Doggie jackets and boots are available from pet supply shops. Spring can be rainy, so take an umbrella on excursions, but summers and fall are usually pleasant for walking with your dog.
The residential areas of this community have lots of trees and landscaping and the large country club to the north, along with the cemetery, provide a large green space on the north side of the community. The New England Thruway runs along the south border of this neighborhood. Traffic and noise are not conducive to on foot travel and should be avoided on walks with your dog in the region.
The sidewalks and streets bordering the cemetery and country club also provide greenways for walking your dog in the neighborhood. There is a beach and a nature preserve in Rye, however, pet owners should be aware that dogs are not permitted at these locations. The good news is that just a 15-minute drive away, the Larchmont Dog Beach has an area where dogs are allowed off-leash on the oceanfront. A short drive northwest, the Harrison Dog Park has an enclosed off-leash dog park with separate areas for small and large dogs.
