“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 Garwood

Garwood may be small, but it has some good places for a person with a canine companion. The town has two dog-friendly restaurants. Rudy's of Garwood, which is is open for lunch and dinner, serves sandwiches and entrees that satisfy any palate. There are two outdoor tables here to accommodate diners and their dogs. If you're craving something a little more filling, check out The Station Bar and Grill. This restaurant serves classic bar fare, like burgers and tasty appetizers. Steak is a prominent menu item for dinner, and your dog is sure to beg for a bite of yours! Live entertainment on the weekends adds to the fun ambiance. People with dogs are welcome to dine on one of the four outdoor tables.

The city of Garwood recognizes the value of maintaining some public green spaces. It has three public parks in the city limits. Hartman Park has a playground and green space. Georgian Memorial Park is a small garden site with a gazebo. Unami Park on Hickory is the largest of the three and features bike trails. Feel free to bring the whole family along to explore all three and choose your favorite! But remember, these are community parks, not dog parks, so your furry friend will need to stay on a leash.
