“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!

With all the beautiful features that Hackensack calls home, it is no wonder you and Fido will want to visit this lovely town and explore all the pawtastic things you can do together. Known for their classic suburban neighborhood, trendy high-rise businesses, and a tidal river, Hackensack is a fantastic spot for Fido to be.

Take Fido out to Foschini Park for a great day of exercising and bonding. The park offers playground equipment, picnic tables, baseball fields, and a small field house. A beautiful walking trail is located here that goes around the numerous baseball diamonds, and backs up to the Hackensack River. If Fido loves grass, the park offers tons of open grassy areas where Fido can run and play fetch. The park can get a little busy at times since it hosts Little League games and other holiday events, so pay attention in case Fido isn't much of a crowd person. Don't forget your water and clean-up bags while visiting.
