Hi, my name is Jen and I have been a dog owner for years. I love playing with them and seeing there tails wagging when I come home. I love being outside with them. I love seeing how happy dogs are when you come to someone’s house and see a dog with their tail wagging away knowing they are going for a walk. Makes me so happy to see that!

“Flippin’ Pawsome Dogs Deserve the Flippin’ Best”

Hi, I'm Jackie and I've been a dog lover since birth...seriously, recently unearthed home movies show my parents teaching me to say "dog sit" at 9-months-old. In addition to Wag, I own my own dog training business. I own three dogs: an American Pit Bull Terrier named Kid, a poodle/terrier mix named Charlie and a working-line German Shepherd named Grady. I look forward to meeting your pets and giving them the same care and love I give to my own dogs on walks.

“The best care for your best friend”

I've loved dogs for as long as I can remember and my dream is to work with them as a living. I am currently taking classes with Catch Canine Trainers Academy to become a dog trainer and I volunteer weekly at St Hubert's to walk dogs. I would love to walk your dog, take them on hikes, play fetch with them, or just chill if that's what they prefer.

Dog Walking in Hopatcong

The name "Hopatcong" is thought to derive from Native American languages and means something like "stone upon water." The water referred to is the huge Lake Hopatcong that adjoins the town's border. Lake Hopatcong has over 2,500 acres of freshwater and is a big recreational draw for water enthusiasts. Boating and fishing are important parts of the town's past. Years ago, the lake beckoned the wealthy folks from New York City.

This little borough is a picturesque community which offers many amenities for people with furry family members, including several parks that welcome leashed dogs! Maxim Glen is a park in the middle part of town.  It has a quarter-mile paved walking path that provides beautiful views of this well-landscaped and peaceful green spot. A fountain adds to the relaxing environment, and a bridge makes the stroll more varied. 

Modick Park is a green space which has a gazebo used for community events and music. A walking path with benches along the way gives a person and a leashed canine companion some fresh air and easy exercise.  Picnic tables let a person share a meal or snack with their four-legged friend.

The borough does not have any veterinary clinics operating within its borders. Any veterinary attention, though, is easily obtainable in one of the many adjoining larger communities. This borough, even with its unusual name, is one you and Fido won't furget!

The Ledgewood neighborhood in Roxbury Township is five miles south of Hopatcong.

A small dog area will let your smaller dog get top dog status once in awhile. The ground in the dog park consists of pea gravel, which keeps those paws clean. A few pieces of agility equipment, like a bridge and some tubing, make for some added fun. This dog park requires registration and a small fee prior to visiting.

Randolph is located twelve miles south of Hopatcong. Randolph Township Dog Park has a fully fenced play place for your canine friend's off-leash exercise and socialization. All the local dogs go to Randolph, and they'd better be on their best behavior, because small and large pups play together here. A statue of a pooch gazes down and watches over all the pups as they play -- so they better play nicely!  The park has a terrain of gray stone mulch.  Large trees shade the benches within the area for the human folk's comfort. A water fountain makes it okay to forget those water bottles. This dog park is for Randolph residents only.

Morristown is located thirteen miles south of Hopatcong. Lewis Morris Dog Park makes it a pawesome day to be a dog! This fully fenced dog park lets dogs shed the leash and enjoy some freedom. A separately fenced enclosure keeps the small dogs safe. This dog park has a paved surface that the humans sometimes complain about, but no dog has ever been known to care.

This dog park can be found in the Lewis Morris County Park.
