“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.

I was raised on a farm in California, and I have been around dogs since I was a very young child. I have cared for dogs both professionally and for family, roommates and neighbors. I LOVE dogs, and I think they can sense when they meet a dog lover, which probably explains why they tend to love me as much as I love them. I look forward to spending time with your furry friend!

Dog Walking in Hillside

Hillside is a small community that benefits from being in the middle of many larger communities. Dog owners are only a short drive away from any service or activity they could need or want for themselves and their furry family member. The town has one veterinary clinic for those routine needs, and nearby municipalities offer plenty of options for emergency services.  

Although Hillside is small, the town has three municipal parks. The largest of them, Conant Park, has some open green spaces and tree-lined walking paths for you and your leashed dog. A few picnic spots make for a lazy lunch on a summer's day. The town straddles the Elizabeth River, and the Elizabeth River Park is also situated in portions of Hillside. This is a linear park that includes a trailway that snakes alongside the flow of the river. This is a peaceful bit of exercise for a person and a leashed dog, with several benches along the way.  

Looking for a real outdoor adventure? Four miles south of Hillside is the 500+ acre Warinanco Park. This is a Union County park that spans the territories of several area communities. A person with a leashed dog will enjoy scenic hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulty. The park is also a favorite spot for boating and fishing, and many picnic sites can be found for a quick snack or lunch with your canine pal.

If you're looking for a quiet community with a big heart and plenty of recreation opportunities nearby, look no fur-ther than Hillside, New Jersey!

Montclair, just 13 miles north of Hillside, is home to a pawpular park that welcomes canine visitors from all over the state!

Fifteen miles south of Hillside, you'll find Woodbridge Dog Park, which offers dogs a fully fenced space where they can shed the leash and run free! A separate area is sectioned off for the small dogs. Woodbridge has lush green grass that smells great in spring and feels ever so soft under those paws. People can sit under shade trees on benches or at the gazebo. Drinking water fountains for dogs and people make bringing that water bottle and bowl unnecessary. Waste stations help with convenient pickups. The dog park sits close to a lake where a leashed dog and person can take a walk as the sun starts to go down on another satisfying day.
