I've loved dogs for as long as I can remember and my dream is to work with them as a living. I am currently taking classes with Catch Canine Trainers Academy to become a dog trainer and I volunteer weekly at St Hubert's to walk dogs. I would love to walk your dog, take them on hikes, play fetch with them, or just chill if that's what they prefer.

I have had my own dogs for 20 years, I have fostered a couple times, and volunteered with an inner city shelter which has provided me with a great deal of experience with all sizes, ages, breeds, and temperaments. Above all, and most importantly, dogs are my favorite and I treat them all like they're my own. I consider many of the dogs I walk like best friends and genuinely love them and look forward to walking with them :)

Dog Walking in Budd Lake

Home to the scenic Budd Lake, which is the largest naturally-formed lake in New Jersey, as well as a couple of other waterways, Budd Lake is such a picturesque part of the state, making it popular with those who enjoy spending time in nature. With several different parks to explore, as well as a highly rated animal hospital, this town is pawfect for exploring with your pooch by your side.

The most popular park in Budd Lake is Turkey Brook Park, which is 267 acres in size. There is so much to see within the park, from its sports facilities and pond to its paved walking trails and historic memorials. Of course, what your pooch will love the most is the park's dog park, which features a 1.5 acre fenced-off area for large dogs, and a half acre fenced-off area for smaller breeds.

For a shorter walk, give the half mile Budd Lake Vista Knoll Trail a try. This trail will take you and Fido through forests and wetlands, before providing the two of you with incredible views over Budd Lake. Another pawsome trail can be found in the Budd Lake Bog Preserve, which stretches out for 275 acres. The bog is quite the natural wonder, having been formed over thousands of years since the last ice age, and there is a rugged trail here that you and Fido can follow to explore the preserve.

With so many pawriffic walks to be had, your pooch's tail will not stop wagging while exploring all that Budd Lake has to offer.
