“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.

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 Brooklyn

Brooklyn is one of five boroughs in New York City and has twenty-two neighborhoods. There are a number of shelters in the area for animals to find care and ap-paw-tunities for adoptions. 

The BARC Shelter is a non-profit, no-kill, privately operated facility located in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Founded in 1987, they rely on volunteers, donations and funds from their pet supply business to care for the animals. BARC’s mission is "to provide a safe haven for abandoned animals and to find permanent, loving homes for them". 

With a visit to their website, you will find a thorough listing of local resources that include pet-friendly apartments, shelters, animal welfare organizations, benefits for homeless animals, pet services, and City of New York information. The BARC Shelter offers animal adoptions as well as a program in which you may sponsor an animal, covering costs of the animal's care. The shelter works with owners to locate lost pets. They serve the community by providing prescription diet food to animals in need. Volunteers are required to complete a day of orientation training. 

The BARC Shelter partners with local schools and community organizations to provide outreach experiences. Local restaurants and bars sponsor karaoke and trivia nights as fundraisers for the care of the animals.

There are at least a dozen locations across the borough of Brooklyn that are opening their doors and hearts to bless the animals! These special services are typically held in the early afternoon, welcoming all animals, children, and all who wish to attend this special blessing of the creatures who give us so much daily devotion. Check with local places of worship and community papers for locations and times!

Bow-Wow at the Brooklyn Bridge Dog Park and Run

The Brooklyn Bridge is famous for the spectacular views of the city, water, and pier. New Yorkers can enjoy the sights of the area while exercising their dogs at the Brooklyn Bridge Dog Park and run! This fenced area is a perfect place for your pooch to go off-leash to play. The run is groomed and easy on the paws. There are shaded hang-outs for hounds and their handlers to rest on. Make sure to follow the park rules, one of which is a caution to not let your dog dig holes, as that may become a trip hazard for others. Enjoy the day, the view and the joy of romping with your Rover in this scenic location!
