LI-DOG is pleased to announce that we will be hosting our next LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at beautiful Sands Point Preserve, the 216-acre former estate of the Guggenheim family! Our Pack-Walks – guided, group on-leash dog walks – are a great way for both you and your dog to socialize, while enjoying some of Long Island’s most beautiful parks!

Please join us for the LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Sands Point Preserve on Sun., June 26th starting at 11 AM. (Please arrive 15 minutes early, so we can start the walk on time.) The Preserve features multiple hiking trails on 200 acres of woods, beautiful lawns, a pond, fields and great views of the Long Island Sound! Please be aware that some of the trails may be a bit steep at times and have roots and rocks.

We anticipate that the Pack Walk™ will take about an hour, but there will be opportunities to make the walk shorter for those who wish to do so.

Please join us after the Pack Walk for a bring-your-own picnic lunch! We have reserved the picnic tables, which are shaded, on the great lawn in front of beautiful Hempstead House. Sands Point has generously waived the fee to reserve the tables for LI-DOG!

Also, your pup can enjoy making new friends at the dog run.

PLEASE NOTE:

• Dogs are NOT allowed on the beach nor in any of the buildings, the rose garden or playground.

• Dogs must remain leashed AT ALL TIMES!

• Please do not use Flexi Leads as we’ll be walking in groups and people and dogs can get tangled.

• Also, please bring plenty of water for your dog and poop bags – as clean-up is a must.

Admission Fee: $15 per car, $4 per walk-in. Sands Point Conservancy members are free. A pay station at the Gatehouse enables contactless payment of the admission fee with credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and cash. If paying by cash, please bring exact change. This fee helps support this beautiful dog-friendly property!

If your dog likes to swim and play with other dogs off-leash, and if you would like to spend a morning with your pup, other dog owners and the great folks of LI-DOG for some summer fun, then please join us at Mud Creek Off-Leash Dog Beach in East Patchogue on Saturday morning, July 16th!

At our Beach Pawty, we’ll let our furry friends frolic in the sand and swim in the calm waters of the Great South Bay! We’ll have plenty of tennis balls and Frisbees to add to the fun.

A clean-up of the Off-Leash Beach will start at 9:30 a.m., so if you and your fur baby would like a little extra time in the sun, please join us in getting the area ready for our meetup!

Please remember to bring plenty of water for you and your pup, your own towels, beach chairs and an umbrella!

PLEASE NOTE: Mud Creek has no amenities–no trash receptacles, no poop bag stations, no bathrooms and no water fountains. LI-DOG will have poop bags on hand, but please help us make the event a success by remembering to bring these items.

Mud Creek is a natural borders dog park, which means it is not fenced on most sides. For everyone’s safety, please only bring dogs that are well-socialized—used to playing with other dogs off-leash—and that will reliably come when called. Please, no retractable leashes.

To access the dog beach, use the double-gate entry, walk along the fence, then turn right onto the beach as soon as the fence ends. Please keep off-leash dogs out of the area in front of the fence, which is a designated no-dog zone.

Parking is on the street. Please keep dogs on-leash until you get into the off-leash area.
