Hi! My name is Karen. I am a huge dog lover, I've never met a dog I didn't love, and make instant friends with the pups I meet. I have had dogs my whole life, including now. I have a rat terrier as well as a super hyper chi-weenie that I rescued from running in traffic. While my dogs are small, I also foster dogs and most of the ones that come to me while awaiting a forever home are pit bulls or other misunderstood pooches. I love them all. I know how much you love your dog, and I will treat them like I would my own. I cant wait to meet your pup!

““WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?” I did! :)”

Hi, my name is Anastasia! I have 3 dogs: a tea cup pomchi and 2 huskies, so I can handle large hyper active dogs just as well as tiny fragile ones that require being extra careful. I do walks, daycare and boardings - if your dog is friendly, they will have a blast playing in a large fully fenced yard. Growing up with dogs since early age I barely spent a day in my life without them by my side, I’m not intimidated neither by breeds nor sizes.I am ready to spend some quality time with your dog :)

“Must hug all the dogs!”

I’ve been dog walking for several years now with over 1300 walks. I have walked pups as small as a rat terrier to as giant as a mastiff. I walk dogs with anxiety and dogs that are aggressive towards humans & other dogs. I have a few pups that I administer medication to. I take what I do very seriously and treat each dog as if they were my own. I’ve never had any incidents (knock on wood)! I have 3 dogs of my own, a Shia Inu mix and the love of my life, a sweet pitbull and a goofy/giant Golden.

“Flippin’ Pawsome Dogs Deserve the Flippin’ Best”

Hi, I'm Jackie and I've been a dog lover since birth...seriously, recently unearthed home movies show my parents teaching me to say "dog sit" at 9-months-old. In addition to Wag, I own my own dog training business. I own three dogs: an American Pit Bull Terrier named Kid, a poodle/terrier mix named Charlie and a working-line German Shepherd named Grady. I look forward to meeting your pets and giving them the same care and love I give to my own dogs on walks.

Dog Walking in Madison

Madison has some interesting places for a person with a person and a dog to visit. The town has three veterinary clinics in case of accident or emergency, as well as many green spaces to keep your pup fit and active.

Two municipal parks have trails for a person and a leashed pup to explore. Rosedale Park has some short trails for on-leash outdoor exercise. A few picnic tables make an outdoor snack or lunch with a furry companion an added experience. Sonny Vitale Memorial Field is another municipal park with trails through a canopy of trees for a person and a leashed dog. Vitale Field has a few picnic sites for a relaxing end to a scenic hike.  

Looking for a more rugged adventure? A few miles southwest of Madison is the 7,700-acre Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. This is a haven for hundreds of species of birds, and a place where wildlife is protected from everything except people's cameras. Dogs are allowed in parts of the refuge as long as they stay on a leash no shorter than ten feet. There are many hiking trails throughout the refuge. The adjoining Lord Stirling Park has over 8.5 miles of walking trails through some beautiful natural scenery.

While you're in town, visit one of Madison's many dog-friendly restaurants. Blue Wazabi has Asian cuisine and specializes in sushi and Thai food. This restaurant is located at 20 Waverly Place. Two dog-friendly tables let you bring a pup with you to dine for either lunch or dinner. Grillera at 91 Park Avenue welcomes you and your furry companion at its outdoor tables to try an entree of Mediterranean cuisine.  These restaurants will help fill that hearty appetite after a day of some outdoor adventure!

Morristown is five miles north of Madison. Lewis Morris is a pawsome dog park to visit, especially after rain makes most dog parks muddy! This dog park has paved large and small dog sections that are fully fenced for some off-leash exercise. A small patch of grass divides the large and small dog areas. Water is available for dogs at the dog park, and doggie waste baggies help make it easy for the human companions to pick up after their pups. The pavement makes it easy to spot where clean-ups are needed. Unfortunately, this dog park doesn't have enough places for people to sit while their pups play. The rest of the county park has areas to picnic and do some on-leash walking.

Just nine miles east of Madison is the township of Maplewood. South Mountain Dog Park gives dogs a place to socialize with some furry pals. This off-leash playground has so many woofin' good amenities!  Small dogs can play safely in their own space. The dog park has many pieces of agility equipment for dogs to train on or just have some extra fun. The agility area includes ramps, jumps, and large objects to climb on. Water for people and their canines is supplied within the park. Waste stations help make it easy for people to pick up after their pups. Seats under the shade make this a pleasant place for people to take their furry friends even on a hot summer's day.

Parsippany is thirteen miles north of Madison. Cameron Dog Park offers green grass in the warm months for some natural escape and exercise. The park is fully fenced, and includes a separate fenced area that caters to the smaller pups. Water is available at the dog park for people and their furry friends. The natural terrain is uneven in spots and can be difficult to navigate for people with accessibility needs. Waste stations have doggie baggies stocked for easy use. Shade is at a premium, though -- one large shade tree dominates the landscape. A couple seats are positioned under it. This dog park is maintained by the city.  Visitors must register and pay a fee prior to use.

Plenty of seats in shaded areas keep the human companions comfortable. Doggie waste baggies are kept stocked -- people keep this dog park's mulch clean. The main park has some paved places for some pleasant walks for a person and their leashed buddy.
