Movie Nights in Colonie, NY

Check out movies about pets, with your pets! It’s only $5.00. The following movies will be playing at All Dawgs Training Services in Colonie, NY:
“Marley & Me” – Friday, July 25th @ 7PM
“Because of Winn Dixie” – Friday, August 22nd @ 7PM
“Best in Show” – Friday, August 8th @ 6:30PM

Dog Hikes

There are so many unbelievable hikes in the Adirondacks that are easy enough for dogs. Try Buck Mountain, a 6.6 mile hike that overlooks Lake George at the summit, for example. If hiking a mountain isn’t your thing, try the Albany Pine Bush Reserve. Dogs are allowed to walk alongside of you on a leash, and you’ll still get trails – complete with pines, butterflies, and more.

Camping Trips

There are plenty of pet friendly campgrounds in Upstate, NY. It all depends on where you’d like to visit. Hearthstone Point, in Lake George NY, is a popular campground with access to the water. You can also try other popular ones, like Nicks Lake Campground in Old Forge, or Rogers Rock Campground in Hague.

Weekend Getaways

Not into camping? Not a problem. There are plenty of pet friendly hotels in Lake Placid, Schroon Lake, Lake George, and more. Note: they will often have various rules (such as extra fees, number of pets allowed, months where pets are not allowed, etc.) In Lake Placid, try the Lake Placid Lodge – one of the most scenic resorts in the Adirondacks. In Lake George, try the Green Haven Resort – a small, nestled resort with a pool, hot tub, and rooms with a cabin feel.

Vineyards/Breweries

I know of two of these places that allow dogs – at least last time I checked. The best part – they’re extremely close to each other! Standing Stone Vineyards and Two Goats Brewing Company in the Finger Lakes region. What could be better than a relaxing day at Seneca Lake?
