“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.

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 Jersey City

Jersey City has a total area of a little more than 21 square miles, which may not seem to offer much room for recreational activities. However, the city is home to several important landmarks, the most recognizable of which is probably the Statue of Liberty. This monument attracts hundreds and even thousands of visitors every day, drawing in guests and their pets from all over the nation.

The public parks in Jersey City are maintained by the Division of Parks and Forestry. The Leonard Gordon Park, which is notable for its Buffalo and Bears statue, has trails that loop through its 5.7 acres. There is also a dog run here, so you and your pup can both get some exercise.

Another dog-friendly area is Hamilton Park, where dogs are welcome in the fenced-in area and allowed to run off-leash. The park has a small splash pad and tennis courts, as well as open spaces where you and your pup can enjoy the sun or the snow as the seasons change.

If you’re running short on supplies or simply in the mood for some shopping, duck into one of the city’s local pet stores such as Hound About Town or Canine Canteen. They have all the things you need to keep your pet safe, happy and healthy, and most are glad to have canine visitors. Best of all, you're supporting local business by shopping in these unique stores. With so many options, you and your dog can easily while away a day in Jersey City.
