“Your friendly neighborhood dog walker”

I started pet sitting when I was in high school. Several of my friends had dogs that I would care for while they were away. To make extra money in college I began to walk and then board a local Shiba Inu; a gig I kept until I started working full time. I have always loved animals, but was unable to have any as a child because of allergies some of my family members have. Now my wife and I currently have two dogs (a beagle and a havanese/poodle mix), three cats, two rabbits, and a conure.

My love of dogs began at a young age, visiting my grandparents and their Newfoundlands. The two gentle giants, Balta and Gunna, scared me at first, but we were soon inseparable. My love for dogs has only grown since then, and has sparked my interest in working with animals. I have some experience taking care of friends' dogs while they were away, and I look forward to working with dogs through Wag!

Dog Walking in Keyport

Located along the Raritan Bay, Keyport is packed with natural beauty, making this a great spot for outdoor activities. With both peaceful sandy beaches and spacious grassy parks, there are endless opportunities for pawsome dog walks in Keyport.

When it comes to the different parks in Keyport, the Cliffwood Beach Waterfront Park and Beach is definitely the highlight. There are a few different sports facilities here, as well as open green spaces, beach access, and a paved walking path. To make the most of the actual beach, time your visit for low tide, as this gives you an extra 100 feet or so in width to explore.

There are a couple of other parks in Keyport that are always fun to visit with a dog. Overlook Park is quite small but tranquil, making it pawfect for a relaxing stroll, while Ross Field is a multi-purpose field with a paved path and a few benches circling it. Dogs are welcome in all of Keyport's parks, but a lead and doggie bags are essential, as is some drinking water for the both of you.

With a pawtastic variety of walks both in and around town, Keyport will no doubt keep you and your pooch quite busy.

Directly adjacent to Keyport is the Matawan neighborhood of Lower Matawan, and this is the place to go if you have a dog who enjoys long walks. Begin with a relaxing stroll around Oakshades Park, which is home to a variety of sports facilities and a playground. What Fido will love most about the park is that it provides access to the Henry Hudson Trail, which stretches out for 24 miles, along an unused portion of old railroad. This is quite a varied trail that beautifully showcases the area's natural beauty, taking you past everything from wildflower meadows to cascading streams. Dogs are welcome to use this trail, but do need to be kept on a lead.
