“Dog walking is no job - it's a passion!”

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 3 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 Linden

People who live with a canine have many options for outdoor exercise in Linden, which is home to a whopping fourteen parks. Some do have limits on access for dogs, though, so check before you go. John Russell Wheeler Park is one of Linden's larger parks. This park provides some green space included lighted areas. Paved walking paths make it easy for you to walk Fido. Remember to keep your furry friend on a leash at all times and clean up. A lake with catch-and-release fishing access makes for a great lazy afternoon outing with your pup.  

More great outdoor fun can be found at the 204-acre Union County park, Warinanco Park. This park straddles several municipalities and offers a wide variety of outdoor activities, including boating, fishing, and places to picnic under some canopy of green. Several walking trails of varying degrees of length and difficulty will help keep your canine friend get fit for his next visit to the one veterinarian in town.

Hungry people with pups in tow can head on over to the Miller's Ale House. This Fido-friendly restaurant has many outdoor tables that welcome a person dining with a four-legged companion. Miller's prides itself on its chicken zingers and sixteen different sauces. It also serves a variety of pasta, sandwiches, and salads. Seventy-five different types of beer are on the menu to complement the meal.  

After a long walk in the park, a stop at Menchie's Frozen Yogurt may be just the right thing to do. This little shop offers a variety of tasty frozen yogurts and concoctions. Two outdoor tables welcome you and your pup.  For food or exercise, Linden is a great place for a person with a dog!

Pups start to prance when they approach the Linden Dog Park in the Tremley neighborhood. This large, grassy field is fully fenced for some leash-free freedom and fun with some new pals. This is a one-size-fits-all dog park, which means there aren't separate areas for the small dogs. Pups are polite here, but be sure to supervise your furry friend. Drinking fountains for canines and humans can be found inside the dog park.  Waste bags and benches are provided for pet parents' convenience. This dog park suffers from the absence of trees -- a hat or an umbrella will be a great help on a hot sunny day.
