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 note: This replaces our scheduled LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Old Westbury Gardens during the Fall Dog Festival as that event has been cancelled.)

Please join us for the LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Sands Point Preserve on Sun., October 25th starting at 11:30 AM. (Please arrive 15 minutes early, so we can start the walk on time.) This dog-friendly park 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 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: Dogs are NOT allowed on the beach and must remain leashed at all times. Please 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.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE: There is an admission charge to Sands Point Preserve of $15 per car unless you are a member of the Sands Point Preserve Conservancy. For more info about Sands Point Preserve including how to become a member of this dog-friendly park treasure, go to the Friends of Sands Point Preserve.

COVID-19 Precautions: Please download the LI-DOG COVID-19 Agreement and our Sign In Sheet and Liability Waiver Sands Point 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! Also, please read the Sands Point Visitor Safety Rules posted on their website.

RSVP (All RSVPs must be done on the LI-DOG Meetup Group)

Please be aware that some of the trails may be a bit steep at times and have roots and rocks.

We’ll meet on the big lawn in front of Hempstead House, the former home of the Guggenheim family, where you’ll also get great views of massive Castle Gould, the carriage house and stables. 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.

Once again this year we will be reserving some picnic tables, so bring your lunch.  We’ve reserved three tables down by the pond. If you have a folding chair, perhaps you could bring that and you and your pooch can join us while we have lunch overlooking the peaceful pond.

PLEASE NOTE: Dogs are NOT allowed on the beach, nor in the houses and must remain leashed AT ALL TIMES! Please do not bring Flexi Leads as not only can people and dogs get tangled, but there are snapping turtles in the pond, which you and your dog will want to avoid! Also, please bring water and poop bags – as clean up is a must.

Admission to Sand Point Preserve is $15 per car. Walk-ins are still $4.

Please arrive by 10:30 AM to sign in, so we can begin the walk promptly at 11 AM.
