“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.

“Rain or shine, I’ll be there”

Hello! Looking forward to taking care of your little pups! My mindset on these walks is that this walk is for your dog and not for myself. I will never pull nor force your dog to do anything that they don’t want to. However, I will try my best to train them in not pulling, but it’s all through patience! Your dog is a member of your family and not merely a pet and I will take care of them as if they were my own!

Dog Walking in Colonia

Colonia's relaxed and low-key vibe appeals to many, especially those seeking some downtime with their four-legged companions. With sprawling green parks, dog-friendly restaurants, and a highly-rated veterinary clinic, Colonia offers up everything you and Fido could need for a pawtastic time.

There are numerous pockets of green to be found around Colonia, and while not all of them may be official parks, they are still such scenic spots for a dog walk. The park at Valley Road is home to a small playground and several trees for Fido to sniff at, while the large expanse of green that runs along the E Lincoln Hwy encompasses a portion of the South Branch Rahway River, and offers up some picturesque views. Since neither of these are dedicated dog parks, you will need to bring a lead, as well as doggie bags and drinking water.

When it comes to safety around town, Colonia ranks quite highly, so you will not need to worry about venturing out after dark with Fido. With a number of streets remaining quite busy until late, there will always be something going on in Colonia for you and your pooch to check out. 

With a compact layout that makes it easy to explore, as well as both large and small parks to check out, Colonia is a pawsome place to spend some time in with your four-legged pal.
