“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!

Ello! My name is Ashley, and I am a nature loving artist whose only desire in life is to love and be loved. I am passionate about creating things and exploring the wonders of life, as well as trying to change the world one smile at a time. I have grown up around many different animals and currently have a ferret who is more like my daughter than my pet. When I can I take her everywhere with me and do all that I can to make sure she has the best life that she can possibly have. It is my goal to open up a cuddle business where I offer love and support, reiki, therapy, and art lessons to those that would like to become the best versions of themselves that they can be. I have a background in psychology that I use everyday to understand all the living beings around me to adapt to the best possible way to interact with them as well as understand what makes them tick as a being.

Maplewood, New Jersey, first came to be in November of 1922; it had existed under a different name for almost sixty years beforehand. Since then, Maplewood has become a pretty well-known town, making quite a name for itself. For example, Ultimate Frisbee was invented in Maplewood by a group of college students! Several movies have been filmed in Maplewood, too, including Garden State, Gracie, and Stepmom.

Today, Maplewood remains a popular area. It’s not just popular with humans, though; dogs will also find enjoyment in Maplewood! With two dog-friendly restaurants and a dog park in town, there’s sure to be something for your canine companion to do. There are also three veterinarian clinics located in the area so that you and your dog can find the best doctor possible; there are all sorts of variables that determine if a vet is the perfect fit. Outside of Maplewood, there are many different options nearby -- you have even more dog parks and dog-friendly restaurants to choose from. While Maplewood might not have a ton of options, there are some, and with friendly people and even more opportunities nearby, make sure to give Maplewood a visit!
