“Dog walking is no job; it's a passion!”

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 2 years now, which I absolutely love! I have had an endearing love for dogs since 2001 when my parents finally gave into the many pleas of my two younger brothers and I to get us a dog. We were introduced to Tiki, a magnificent Black Labrador, who became the sister we never had.

I doubt you're ever gonna find anyone who loves dogs more than I do. I've lived with dogs my whole life, walked at least 100 of my friends dogs, read dog books, volunteered at the Humane society in Hawaii, donate to ASPCA monthly, and just love them like crazy. I'm used to walking between 35.000 to 45.000 steps a day and can't wait to start walking your little one.

Hi there. My name is Dan. I go to school at GW, and I'm looking to walk some local pooches to help pay for school. I'm new to the world of professional pet care, but I'm no stranger to caring for dogs. I have a basset hound mix named Bon Bon back home (who I miss like crazy) that I've loved and cared for the past 8 years. I've also had experience sitting and walking dogs for neighbors and relatives. I look forward to getting out to meet some new pups and brighten their days.

Hello, my name is Gideon. I had two dogs when I was a boy, and I have always loved them. As an adult, I personally rescued a 6-month old Pit Bull Terrier who had been abandoned in the street, and she was the best dog ever! Training and raising her taught me a lot about how dogs behave, and how to walk them responsibly. Thank you for reading my bio, I look forward to meeting and walking your dogs!

Dog Boarding in Jersey City

For dog lovers, the fact that every pet deserves a loving home is a universal truth. Luckily for the pets of Jersey City, there are plenty of animal rescue groups and welfare organizations that share this belief.

Liberty Humane Society is one of them. This open-admission shelter cares for, treats, and finds homes for thousands of unwanted and abused animals every year. With a mission to help animals in need find lifelong, loving homes, the society also offers a number of programs and support services to ensure that fewer dogs end up homeless.

See Spot Rescued also devotes its efforts to helping homeless pets. Based in Jersey City and New York City, this non-profit has a sole purpose: to find a loving, permanent home for each and every homeless dog. It rescues dogs of all breeds, sizes, and ages, and then matches them with owners who are willing and able to give them the care they need.

Final Hope Rescue and Sanctuary is yet another of the area’s rescue groups deserving of your support. With an aim to help New Jersey’s abandoned and neglected dogs and cats, Final Hope is volunteer-run and relies entirely on donations. It provides the temporary shelter, medical care, and socialization homeless animals need, and then takes action to help the find loving and secure homes.
