“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.

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 Irvington

Irvington is located around 15 miles across the Hudson River from the City that Never Sleeps. The place was named after Washington Irving, who was a historian, short story writer, and diplomat of the early 19th century. Before it was renamed, the town was known as Camptown. Plenty of notable people were born in this town, including the rapper Napoleon, who was a member of Tupac's group, Outlawz. Another notable person that was raised in Irvington is Vera Farmiga, who is best known for her role in the horror movie The Conjuring.

Although there aren't any restaurants or accommodations that allow doggies in Irvington, its close proximity to New York makes everything easier. Irvington has its own animal hospital that will tend to your dogs' needs. If you want more choice, again, head to New York City, where you'll find paw-lenty of options. Across NYC, there are more than 300 dog-friendly accommodations and more than 500 dog-friendly restaurants! Lower Manhattan is closest to Irvington, and it offers so much for you and your dog to do and see. 

Prefer to skip the Big Apple? You can't miss out on visiting the South Mountain Reservation, located in Essex County, NJ. This huge natural area is just 4 miles from Irvington, and pups are very welcome to explore here!
