“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 New York

With millions of residents in the city, New York, New York is also home to masses of homeless animals. Since many animals are allowed to roam and haven’t been fixed, there are a huge number of strays wandering around the city. Luckily, there are quite a few rescue organizations and animal shelters in New York City to help care for these animals and help them find permanent homes! Two of these organizations are BARC Shelter and Animal Haven.

BARC Shelter is located in Brooklyn. The shelter provides food, safety, and medical care to hundreds of animals each year. BARC is a no-kill shelter that is proud to help animals in the city find new homes. While the goal of the shelter is to adopt out animals, those who can’t bring a pet into their home can help by sponsoring animals in the shelter. BARC runs off of donations and sponsorships, so this money is a great help to all the animals who call the shelter home for now.

Animal Haven is a non-profit animal rescue that finds homes for stray cats and dogs in the Tri-State area. Since its founding in 1967, the shelter has helped thousands of animals find new homes, while also educating the community on proper pet ownership and the human-animal bond.

If you are living in the New York City area and think that you may want to bring a new animal into your home, consider contacting one of these, or other animal shelters in the area.
