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

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 3 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.

The picturesque little community of Closter has so many amenities for a family with furbaby. Two veterinary clinics take care of the routine and emergency needs of your pup. Within a radius of fewer than ten miles are all the veterinary services your pup could need, including emergency and specialty care. 

The opportunities for outdoor exercise and recreation make Closter an exceptional place to visit or live. The borough maintains several small parks that have open green spaces for a person and a leashed pup to experience together. Ruckman Park has an easy walking path that takes a person and a leashed pup around the entire park. Scauble Park is another borough green space that has a short walking path. Grass, trees, and flowers give a person and a four-legged companion a serene start to the day or a restful finish.

A more intense workout can be experienced at either the nearby Palisades Interstate Park, with its over thirty miles of trails, or at the Closter Nature Center, with its dozen of short trails which wind through forests and meadows.

In town, Zendiggi Kebab House, located on Closter Dock Road, serves Mediterranean cuisine for lunch and dinner. A dog-friendly outdoor table welcomes a person dining with a canine companion.

The beautiful borough of Closter makes it easy to have a good life with your four-legged family member!
