“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.

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.

Hello, my name is Gideon. I had two dogs when I was a boy, and I have always loved them. As an adult, I personally rescued a 6-month old Pit Bull Terrier who had been abandoned in the street, and she was the best dog ever! Training and raising her taught me a lot about how dogs behave, and how to walk them responsibly. Thank you for reading my bio, I look forward to meeting and walking your dogs!

I am passionate about creating things and exploring the wonders of life, as well as trying to change the world one smile at a time.

Dog Walking in Garfield

Garfield, New Jersey is conveniently located just a short drive away from muttropolitan areas like New York City, Newark, and Patterson, so people and pups are never far from the amenities of the big city. A dog with a medical need, though, doesn't have to leave Garfield, because there are three veterinary clinics in town. Garfield also has eleven municipal parks, but all of them prohibit dogs. Many dogs can be seen there anyway, so maybe someday the city will rethink its ban.  

There are plenty of places to chow down with your hound in Garfield, though! A fun one to check out is Boiler Room Pints & Pies, located at 133 Monroe Street. This restaurant lets well-behaved dogs inside the restaurant to dine. Boiler Room is the place to be on one of those cold New Jersey days. This restaurant serves up some bar fare and even serves some free pizza! This unique place is open seven days a week, with hours from 2 pm until 2 am Monday through Saturday, with Sunday hours from 12  pm until 2 am.  

For those warmer days, a visit to Bistro 399 will satisfy that craving for something a little different. Bistro is located at 399 Midland Avenue and serves Mediterranean and American food. This restaurant has twelve dog-friendly outdoor tables. Not feeling all that exotic? A craving for Italian food can be satisfied at La Cambusa on 317 River Drive. A person with a canine companion is welcome to dine at one of the several patio tables.

Waste baggies are stocked for those necessary pickups, and a few seats are situated under the shade trees just outside the fence.
