“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.

My name is Ian and I'm from New Orleans, Louisiana. I grew up with dogs and cats my entire life. Currently the family dog stays with my parents down south, and she is a black Lab mix coming up to 12 years now. My early teens I ran a neighborhood pet care service with my brother. We would walk our neighbors dogs and cats, as well as feed and bathe them. We also boarded an old terrier every now and then for an elderly couple. I'm currently an actor and I love animals and exercise, so this opportunity seemed perfect as a source of income.

“Your friendly neighborhood dog walker”

I started pet sitting when I was in high school. Several of my friends had dogs that I would care for while they were away. To make extra money in college I began to walk and then board a local Shiba Inu; a gig I kept until I started working full time. I have always loved animals, but was unable to have any as a child because of allergies some of my family members have. Now my wife and I currently have two dogs (a beagle and a havanese/poodle mix), three cats, two rabbits, and a conure.

Dog Walking in Fanwood

Fanwood is a small and historic town, with many buildings dating back to the Victorian era. In addition to its magnificent architecture, Fanwood also boasts lush green parks, a dog-friendly restaurant, and a reputable animal hospital, making this a great area to take your pooch to.

Your dog will love spending some time at the Forest Road Park. There are sports facilities and a playground here, as well as a walking path for you and Fido to stroll on. 

The Fanwood Nature Center is also worth a visit, and you will find a wide range of plants and wildlife here, as well as a beautiful walking trail. While dogs are allowed to use the trail and explore the park, they must be kept on a lead at all times, and make sure to bring some doggie bags and drinking water with you.

If you would like to treat your pup to a meal, Mara's Café and Bakery has four dog-friendly tables. Although they specialize in breakfast dishes, their artisan lunches are equally tasty, and they are always willing to provide a bowl of cold water for dogs.

With its peaceful and laid-back vibe, Fanwood is pawfect for pooches who want to enjoy a few relaxing dog walks, with both urban and rural surroundings to choose from.
