Join LI-DOG on Sunday, Sept. 24th for one of our popular LI-DOG Pack Walks(TM) – a group on-leash dog walk–in beautiful Blydenburgh County Park in Smithtown!

Blydenburgh is a 627-acre Suffolk County Park that boasts not only a large dog park, but miles of dog-friendly walking trails. The main loop trail around Stump Pond in the center of the park is six miles long, but for our Pack Walk on Sept.  24th, we’ll scope out a shorter, 45 minute or hour-long walk for everyone and their dogs. The trail is mostly flat, dirt or sand, and well-shaded by trees.  Go to Blydenburgh Trail Map for a map of the walk.

Please be aware that there can occasionally be horses on the trail and some off-leash dogs, especially in the more northern sections of the park. In any case, dogs must be kept on leash at all times and, of course, be picked up after. Also, while there is water available in the dog park, you should bring water for you and your dog on the trail.

Meet us on the big field next to the dog park to start our Pack Walk!

Once you’ve passed the entrance gate, follow the signs straight north to the Dog Park. The road will turn into a dirt road several hundred feet before you get to the parking area for the dog park.  Try to arrive 10 – 15 minutes before the walk start time so that you can sign in.

Please note: All dogs must have proof of rabies vaccination (a photo of certificate on your phone will do).
As always, check back here on Meetup on Sat. night or Sun. morning around 9 a.m. for any weather-related changes.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone and their dogs for our LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Blydenburgh Park on Sept. 24th !

LI-DOG Pack Walk™

Blydenburgh County Park

Sat., Sept. 24th, 11AM

Veterans Memorial Hwy, Smithtown (Google Map)

The LI-DOG Pack WalkTM at Blydenburgh County Park on Sat., Sept. 24th is on! The Suffolk County Parks Dept. has approved our permit to hold a group on-leash walk at the park. This will be LI-DOG’s first Pack WalkTM in a Suffolk County Park.

Blydenburgh County Park in Smithtown is a beautiful, 627-acre park that has multiple trails for on-leash dog walking. For our Pack Walk, we’ve scoped out a great 1.6-mile walk along two broad, mostly flat dirt trails that are well shaded by trees. The walk will take approximately 35 to 40 minutes and will start and end on the big field next to the Blydenburgh Dog Park, where there is ample parking . There is a longer, 6-mile loop trail around Stump Pond in the middle of the park for anyone who’s more ambitious, but our Pack Walk on the 24th will stick to a shorter walk.

Please be aware that there can be horses on the trail, especially on the more northern trails in the park. In any case, dogs must be kept on leash at all times and, of course, be picked up after. Also, while there is water available in the dog park, you may want to bring water for you and your dog on the trail.

Please note that we have special requirements mandated by the Suffolk Parks Dept. for this Pack Walk:

  • We need to document that each of the dogs who comes on our walk has their rabies vaccination. The Parks Dept. is looking for the paper document the vet gives you when your dog is vaccinated—a Rabies Vaccination Certificate. These certificates should be either scanned and emailed to us at lidog_news@yahoo.com or faxed to us at 631-421-4080. We need to submit these certificates to the Parks Dept. by Thurs. afternoon, Sept. 22nd.
  •  We also have to pay a permit fee, which will cost us $3 per person. LI-DOG will pay the fee, but we’d appreciate any help you can give us in defraying our costs. Please see one of our Pack Leaders on Sat. to find out how.

Because of the deadline for proof of vaccination, RSVP’s for this walk will close at 2 p.m. on Thurs., Sept. 22nd.

We’re looking forward to seeing you and your dog for our first Pack Walk at Blydenburgh County Park!
