Upper Irvington is the main district of the township of Irvington, New Jersey. It comprises the town's main shopping and dining area as well as several residential regions. There are many well-known businesses in the neighborhood, particularly along Springfield Avenue. This is also where you'll find a discount pet supply store. In the southern part of Upper Irvington is Chancellor Animal Hospital for any veterinary needs.

This is a large neighborhood with many places to explore on foot with your pet. Check the weather before heading out though, as New Jersey's climate can change quickly thanks to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. The summers can be very hot and the winters freezing with plenty of snow. Hot sidewalks are dangerous to doggie paws, so try to head out earlier in the morning on a humid summer day. If you absolutely have to go out, consider looking into buying paw protectors.
