“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.

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 Hawthorne

Located just 30 minutes from New York City, Hawthorn is a family and dog-friendly town. Pup parents are often found walking their canine companions in the parks and enjoying the scenic brook that runs through the area. The small-town feel is enhanced by local family-owned businesses like J & B Pet Supplies. This pet store is independently owned and carries artisan pet food Fido will love.

If your pooch needs medical attention, Hawthorne features three qualified veterinarian clinics offering compassionate care for emergencies and routine healthy pup check-ups. Walking Fido is important to keep him fit and trim. To help your dog be at his best, visit the Franklin Lake Nature Preserve that offers 147 acres of open space located just four miles from Hawthorn. You will find many puppy parents hiking the trails around the 75-acre lake here.

Staying at the Hyatt Place Hotel Fair Lawn is perfect when traveling with Fido. Up to 2 dogs are allowed for an extra fee and your pooch will love spending time with the family. You and your furry friends can also enjoy dog-friendly seating at Nectar Café. The restaurant serves gluten-free and vegan dishes, and you can order something special for Fido.

The whole family will enjoy the beautiful grassy areas and large playground.

High Mountain Park is located west in the Squaw Brook neighborhood of North Haledon. This 1,100-acre wooded preserve is one of the largest in New Jersey, and is an excellent choice for giving Fido plenty of exercise. The mountain range was formed by lava, and there are five “blazed” trails that are maintained by volunteers. When walking your pup, you will see other canine parents out and about enjoying nature. If you are planning to spend the day, pack some kibble and sandwiches and fill up the water bottles. Pups who enjoy climbing rocks and sniffing the plants will love hiking the mountain.
