Thank you so much to Jose for going above and beyond helping out in an inconvenient situation with a sick pup. I’m also so glad my grouchy pup was visibly happy in his rover card pictures!!

A large city park, this 1000-acre park is in the northwest Bronx and overlooks the valleys of the city. Astronomy is a highlight event in this park as it sits high above the light pollution of this northern borough. A number of amenities for dog walkers and owners include an off-leash area, miles of walking trails and greenways, heavily forested areas, swimming and fishing holes, and waterpads. Pro tip: The park also has free wifi for you to plan your next adventure. Van Cortlandt Park is the third biggest park in the NYC area and is home to the Bronx’s oldest building. So you’ll not only get your outdoor fix, but also historical exposure.

Pelham Bay ParkPelham Bay, Bronx

This park is the largest park in NYC with over 2,700 acres, making it three times the size Manhattan’s Central Park. With several natural and man-made features, a large lagoon separates this massive park into two distinct areas. Multiple islands, waterways, lakes, and other dog-friendly features. Dog sitters in the Bronx will have a lifetime outlet for outdoor adventure and exploration in this amazing city park. Designated a forever wild sanctuary, this park will persist for lifetimes to come. The number of amenities available in this park is almost too many to count. Needless to say, Bronx dog walkers will never go without a place to take a pet or client.

St. Mary’s Dog ParkMott Haven, Bronx

Once considered a top neglected park of NYC, this small city neighborhood dog park was awarded $30m in revitalization funds. Going into construction, this means new natural turf fields, a large off-leash dog play area, splash pads, and fields for other sports and outdoor recreation. Touted as one of the most revitalization projects for Bronx neighborhoods, this small park is poised to be an example of neighborhoods coming together to show how quality of life, neighborhood organization, and political coordination is best for dog owners and dog sitters in the Bronx. The new dog area includes natural and man-made features as well a water feature for pets.

Williamsbridge OvalNorwood, Bronx

Built on an old reservoir that was drained and relinquished to the NY Parks department, Williamsbridge Oval is a neighborhood gathering place for Bronx dog walkers and pet owners. This 20-plus acre park was officially opened in 1937 as part of FDR’s a “New Deal”, plays host to volleyball courts, an off-leash dog area, bocce courts, multiple baseball fields, and tennis courts. In 2013 a park renovation included the addition of indoor exercise facilities and a revamping of several outdoor facilities. Even though this is a smaller dog park, there is still plenty to explore through a mix of walking trails and outdoor events.

Top Dog Neighborhoods in Bronx


This historic NYC neighborhood once played host to some of the most influential and important NYC residents, including Major Joseph Delafield and early 20th-century religious leader Genevieve Ludlow Griscom. It’s also associated with the death of Anthony Van Corlaer, who was bitten by a shark while endeavoring to swim across the Hudson River in 1642. Tree-lined streets, large mansions, and old money are hallmarks of this Bronx neighborhood. It’s home to the oldest building in the Bronx, the Van Cortlandt House, a relic of an old wheat plantation on the site. Wave Hill Public Gardens is a cultural center that highlights expansive seasonal gardens that provides educational opportunities and tours. Only service animals are admitted, however you can leave your pup in the trusted care of a Bronx dog sitter or boarder and explore the gardens secure in the knowledge that your furry family member is in good hands.


Home to Van Cortlandt Park, Kingsbridge is worth day trip of city street hiking for any Bronx pet sitter or dog walker. Pet owners who live in this neighborhood know the best, the number of dog friendly activities and proximity to one of NYC’s largest parks makes Kingsbridge one of the most attractive neighborhoods for working and middle class families. Often labeled as “lower Riverdale”, Kingsbridge is much more than a smaller neighborhood within a larger one. Having its own specific population that’s socioeconomically distinct from anyone else, Kingsbridge attracts its own crowd separate from that of Riverdale. Whether grabbing a pie at Kingsbridge Social Club or a beer at the Bronx Alehouse, travelers and residents will love Kingsbridge.


Concourse, home to Yankee Stadium and the Bronx Bombers, holds a distinct place in the hearts of all New Yorkers and Yankees fans all over the world. Its vibe is more industrial than residential, but don’t let that sway you from exploring many of the neighborhoods nooks and crannies. Whether your walking through the Bronx Terminal Market or exploring the lookout places George Washington used to monitor places along the Harlem River, this historic and iconic neighborhood has everything to offer. With five distinct parks for Bronx dog walked to bring on-leash pups, there is more than enough green space to keep your furry friends happy for days.

Pelham Gardens

As one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the Bronx, Pelham Gardens is a place where its residents have likely been there since birth. Not much has changed in this staple Bronx neighborhood over the last 10 years, and that’s created a neighborhood of friends and people who want the best for the future of their city. One of its more expensive attractions: The 36-hole golf course—the only one in NYC—which happens to be ranked number 1 by the PGA. Pelham Gardens is also home to the largest NYC park, Pelham Bay Park—more than three times the size of Central Park with 2,772 acres of wild space.

Why do dog owners love Bronx?

The Bronx is the only NYC borough entirely on the US mainland and is the 4th largest of the five boroughs. Split into two sections by the Bronx river, roughly 25% of the entire borough is open space. The Bronx is a dream cityscape for dog-walkers and pet owners. The area was originally established by Jonas Bronck in 1636 as part of the New Netherland colony. Overtime the name Bronck was either shortened or misspelled to Bronx, which then stuck as the ongoing spelling. The Bronx is a shopper’s paradise, with more than one million square feet of retail space. The more attractive shopping neighborhoods include Kingsbridge, Riverdale, and Bruckner Boulevard. However, shopping isn’t the only thing available to dog walkers and dog owners. Cultural attractions include the New York Botanical Gardens, The Bronx Zoo, and the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage. The 250-acre New York Botanical Gardens has over one million living plants. The Bronx Zoo, meanwhile, has 265 acres of land and natural habitats and is one of the largest zoos in the country. Visit Edgar Allan Poe Cottage, where the American writer once lived. This home is also included in the Historic House Trust, which is named on the National Register of Historic Places. Cultural events and attractions throughout this wildly attractive borough are in abundance and any type of attraction whether it be outdoors or entertainment are readily available. Even with a history dating back to and rooted in European colonialism, the Bronx has developed into one of the most uniquely diverse Counties in NY State. With one-quarter of the borough devoted to open space, city planners have worked hard to create a neighborhood where quality of life is balanced with commerce and the housing needs of a massive city. If you’re dog boarding in the Bronx, you know the importance of having readily accessible green space for long walks and off-leash opportunities. The Bronx offers this and much more. Whether a dog walker wants to go out for a short trip around the block, hike city streets to main shopping areas and attractions, or spend the day at the largest NYC park, the Bronx is the place to do this.
