Albany is the state capital … but in the city of 100,000 (and the metro area of 900,000, including nearby Schenectady and Troy), it can look like dogs are the movers and shakers. Pet sitters love walking their guest dogs in the Capital Region, and a good starting point is city center -- the grounds of the 19th century capitol building and the modernistic Empire State Plaza. Nearby is Washington Park, designed and executed like New York City's Central Park. Washington Park is great for playing a game of fetch. A couple blocks in the other direction is a Soho-style pet friendly downtown with restaurants that embrace dogs and dog sitting hosts: Nicole's Bistro, Olde English Pub and Pantry, Iron Gate Café, and Emack and Bolio's (ask for the doggie sundae!). DogVacay.com's Albany home dog boarding and pet sitting hosts are the best in the city.
Of Albany's four off-leash parks, dog sitters favor clean, grassy Department of General Services Dog Park (acronym: DoGS); in winter, the indoor sPAW CITY in suburban Ballston Spa gets two paws up, way up. A little further out of town are Thacher State Park, with on-leash hiking trails affording panoramic views of the Hudson Valley and Green Mountains, and Moreau Lake State Park when a pet wants to take a dip. Let one of DogVacay.com's pawesome home dog boarding or pet sitting hosts take your pup out for a great time in Albany!
