You and your dog are invited to join us for our first LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Fire Island National Seashore!  For this, our Nov. 2021 Pack Walk™, we’ll be walking the oceanfront beach south of the Fire Island Lighthouse. In addition to wide open views of sea, sand and sky, it’s also possible we’ll see humpback whales and dolphins frolicking offshore. For more information about what should be a great final Pack Walk™ of the 2021 season,  go to LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Fire Island National Seashore.

How to Find Us: Meet us at the far eastern end of Parking Field 5 at Robert Moses State Park.  We’ll walk over to Fire Island National Seashore from there.

On Sunday, Nov 21st, please join LI-DOG for our first ever LI-DOG Pack Walk™ along the beautiful Fire Island National Seashore! Our Pack Walks–group on-leash walks–are a great way for you and your dog to socialize with other pet parents and their pups while enjoying some of Long Island’s beautiful parks and beaches.

For this, our final LI-DOG Pack Walk™  of the 2021 season, we’ll meet at the far eastern end of Parking Field 5 at Robert Moses State Park. Please note that dogs are not allowed on the beach at Robert Moses. To get to Fire Island National Seashore, we’ll walk north and east along the broad grassy shoulder of Robert Moses Parkway and then onto the dirt road that runs south of the lighthouse. There are great views of the lighthouse from the dirt road and the main path to the lighthouse.

Opposite the sign for the Fire Island Lighthouse, we’ll cross over the dunes on a pre-made path to the ocean beach. At that point, you’ll be able either to turn right and head back along the ocean to Robert Moses or if you want to do a bit longer walk, you’ll be able to turn left and walk further East towards Kismet, before doubling back towards Robert Moses. The shorter walk will cover about 1.5 miles and take about 45 minutes, the longer walk will be closer to 2.5 miles. In either case, you will be walking along the shore with your dog enjoying wide open views of sea, sand and sky.

Two additional features make this Pack Walk particularly exciting: 1) The National Park Service, which manages FINS, has advised us that there have been sightings of humpback whales and dolphins lately. It is also common to see hawks and other large birds circling over head. 2) We are hopeful that in addition to our usual contingent of seasoned LI-DOG Pack Leaders, we will be joined by a Park Ranger who lives on Fire Island and will be happy to point out wildlife and other interesting sights.

Please be aware that dogs must remain leashed AT ALL TIMES on the Pack Walk. Please also make sure to bring poop bags–as clean-up is a must! Also, no retractable leashes as we’ll be walking as a group and people and dogs can get tangled.

Please arrive 15 minutes early so you can sign in and we can start on time.

This should be a great final LI-DOG Pack Walk™ of the 2021 season!

We hope you and your dog can join us at Fire Island National Seashore on Sun., the 21st!

Please join us for our final LI-DOG Pack Walk™ of 2020 at lovely Dix Hills Park in Huntington on Sat., Nov. 21st starting at 10:30 AM.  (Please arrive 15 minutes early, so we can start the walk on time.)

As Huntington’s largest park, Dix Hills Park covers 160 acres and includes a nine-hole golf course, skating rink and pool. We’ll be walking the Woodland Trail, a 1.9 mile loop trail through the woods that skirts the entire perimeter of the park. Please note the trail is a little hilly and while most of it is dirt, some parts can be gravely.

We anticipate 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 NOTE: Do not bring Flexi Leads as we’ll be walking in groups and people and dogs can get tangled. Also, please bring water and poop bags – as clean up is a must.

COVID-19 Precautions: Please download the LI-DOG COVID-19 Agreement and our Sign In Sheet and Liability Waiver BEFORE the Pack Walk™, sign both documents, and bring them with you to the Pack Walk. The fewer people standing around signing documents, the better!

RSVP (All RSVPs must be done on the LI-DOG Meetup Group as we need to limit attendance.)

Weather-Related or Public Health-Related Changes: Please check the LI-DOG Meetup or Facebook Group or our website Sat. morning around 9:30 a.m. for any notices. If there is no notice, the Pack Walk is on!

We look forward to seeing you and your dog for LI-DOG’s final Pack Walk™ of the year at Dix Hills Park!

Our LI-DOG Pack Walks will resume in the Spring, assuming no new public health-related issues.
