“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!

Dog Walking in Harrison

Harrison is a close suburb of Newark, being only about 5 miles from its downtown area, and located on a sharp curve in the Passaic River. It was formerly an industrial town and many commuters from the surrounding areas flocked to it. Today, it is transforming into a residential and service sector community with road and rail service to Jersey City and Manhattan. It is crisscrossed by several large highways, which make it an easy trip to some of the dog-friendly activities that surrounding communities offer.

West Hudson Park is one of the dog-friendly activities you can find within Harrison’s town limits. It combines active with natural, passive space on 46 acres. Various sports facilities and a playground are in the park, along with winding pathways and Fairy Lake. Walk your pup over the 4 miles of paths, and in the summer, cool off in the spray of the fountain. There’s even a shaded gazebo and a bridge over the lake. Fishing in the lake is permitted, so throw out a line from the bridge or shore with your best pal by your side. Puppers must be leashed while in the park and the picnic areas.  Pawsome fun and relaxation!

Head to the dog-friendly restaurant named Spanish Pavillion for a bite, which features a large outdoor patio and classic Spanish dishes like paella and tapas. Their longstanding, authentic Spanish chef and host knows exactly how to make you and Fido feel comfortable and welcome. And full!

The Edgemont Memorial Park in this neighborhood of Montclair is surrounded by roads and residential back yards, yet it feels like it is far from the hustle and bustle of a subdivision. It features a bike and foot paths, and a pond with fountains and ice skating in winter. Fido is welcome here on leash, and can even join his human for summer band concerts in the park. There is a shelter house if the weather is unpleasant, with restrooms and a water source for your fur-baby. While the human kids play on the playground or softball diamonds, you and your bestie can stroll along Toney’s Brook, the outlet for the pond, or just have a sit and rest. The Canadian Geese that frequent the park during their migratory travels are a nuisance to some, but their antics can be entertaining, especially for canine members of the family.

You won’t be sorry you did! Bone appetit!
