“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 Lyndhurst

There are places in Lyndhurst from which a person can literally see the skyline of Manhattan. Lyndhurst may be small, but that doesn't mean people need to drive long distances for their conveniences. Two veterinary clinics, one of which operates 24/7, are available when even a short drive is too long when a precious friend has been injured or needs immediate medical treatment.

People with dogs especially appreciate the abundance of green space here. Lyndhurst has ten public parks in its city limits. Eight of them are city parks, which are the smaller of the parks. Some are just a few acres in size and aren't much more than patch of grass and a set of playground equipment. 

One large park, Richard W. DeKorte, is operated in cooperation with several government entities. This park is an estuary that is home to many migratory birds. The park gives its visitors a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline. DeKorte has 6 designated trails with 3.5 combined miles. None of the trails are over a mile long. A couple of them are paved and wheelchair-accessible. Dogs are permitted on leash on all the trails except the Marsh Discovery Trail.  

Are you and your hound hungry after all that hiking? You'll find plenty of Fido-friendly eateries here to keep you from feeling famished! One is City Lounge, a sports bar that serves typical pub chow, like sandwiches and an assortment of simple dishes. It has three outdoor tables that welcome dogs. Bob's Bagels is a great spot to grab some all-day breakfast, and Colonial Diner is a local favorite that's open 24/7. Both establishments serve pets and their parents at the outdoor tables.

Lyndhurst provides everything a dog could want -- food and outdoor exercise!

Lyndhurst knows that dogs just want to have fun. The Riverside County Dog Park keeps those tails waggin' and noses sniffin'! This fully fenced dog park lets dogs run wild and free. There is even a small dog section so the little ones don’t get hurt. You'll find all the necessary amenities here, including drinking water, well-stocked waste stations with doggie bags, and a  few nice shaded places for pet parents to sit while their pup plays. Locals advise that some humans don't watch their dogs as closely as they should at this dog park, and play can get a little, well, ruff. Be sure to supervise your pup at all times whenever you visit the dog park!

Six miles west of Lyndhurst, in Montclair, you'll find Brookdale Dog Park. This fully fenced dog park is a pooch’s perfect playground. It has two enclosures: one large section for big dogs, and a second for the smaller ones. The ground is mostly gravel mulch, but greenery abounds on all sides of the dog park. The parks features nifty drinking fountains that serve dogs and people at the same time. Waste stations are also available for those necessary cleanups. There's always a line for the agility equipment here, which is very pawpular with the local dogs. Less ambitious people and pups can relax a bit on the shaded benches.

Saddle River County Dog Park, located 16 miles away in Ridgewood, has two fully fenced enclosures for dogs to shed the leash and sniff out some new canine companions. A partially paved surface makes this dog park less attractive to some visitors (mostly the two-legged kind), and some additions, like water and more seating, would make the human companions less grouchy. Dogs here have fun, though, and they're also cleaned up after thanks to the park's supplied waste baggies. The main park has some hiking areas that leashed dogs are welcome to explore.

Small breeds can sniff out some new canine companions their own size in their own separate area. This dog park has all the amenities, including water and waste baggies. Ample seats in comfortable spots allow a person to watch and supervise from a decent vantage point. A decorative gazebo provides even more shade. Dogs can try out the agility equipment, and the ambitious can even squeeze in a bit of training.

Echo Lake Dog Park in Mountainside, just 24 miles from Lyndhurst, has all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a furrific dog park! Let your dog find a new furry friend in one of two separate areas for large and small breeds. If playtime gets a little too ruff, you can put your dog in a time-out pen until he's on his best behavior again.  Drinking water for both pups and their parents are provided at the dog park, in addition to water bowls. Many toys and ball are shared by visitors to the dog park. Poop bags are provided at the waste stations -- so use them!  A sheltered area lets the human companions get out of the weather so that pup can continue to play. You and Fido are sure to have a pawesome time here!
