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.

“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.

Dog Walking in East Orange

East Orange, New Jersey is a densely populated city located in Essex County. East Orange residents benefit from being part of a larger metropolitan area. There is only one animal hospital in the city limits. However, dozens of veterinary clinics can be found in the adjoining communities. 

Active hounds will be happy to know the city maintains 7 parks. These are mostly small green spaces with ball fields and sports areas dominating the space. Soverel Park and Opal Playground have walking tracks as well as green spaces where people and leashed pups are welcome to walk. 

Essex County has also dedicated many acres for recreational use. The county has thirty parks that offer many opportunities for outdoor exercise with your leashed four-legged friend. Watsessing Park has 69 acres of land which occupies portions of East Orange and Bloomfield. This park lets people hike the many trails with their leashed pup. South Mountain Reservation has many hiking trails that will challenge a hiker and his furry companion  Some trails are rugged paths that end at an overlook, so be sure to bring a camera. Easier trails winding through the forest satisfy a person and a dog's need to be outside smelling and seeing the natural world. This park includes a fishing pond and a picnic site for another day's adventure.

The many recreational spaces in and around East Orange make it a furrific place for pups and their parents to live or visit!
