“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 Newark

From big dogs to small dogs, purebreds to mutts — all canines get the chance to find a loving home in Newark! New Jersey’s biggest city may often be overlooked in favor of its more glamorous neighbours, but there’s plenty of compelling reasons why Newark is the paw-fect destination for dog lovers and their pets.

One of those reasons is the plethora of impressive animal rescue and welfare organizations that serve at-risk animals in the area. The Associated Humane Societies, for example, has been helping animals of all shapes and sizes since 1906. As the provider of the largest animal sheltering system in New Jersey, it provides care and treatment to thousands of animals each year. And thanks to a strong adoption program, the Associated Humane Societies has helped many unwanted dogs and cats find their forever homes.

Pound Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) of Montclair is another hardworking rescue group that has been helping New Jersey’s animals for 40 years. With an unwavering commitment to the humane treatment of animals, PAWS Montclair provides much-needed adoption services for stray and unwanted dogs and cats. This non-profit maintains two small shelters — one for dogs and the other for cats — and relies on a thriving network of foster homes to help pets in need.
