Hello! My name is Michele, and I am a high school biology teacher. I love animals! I previously had a dog of my own, but cannot own another one right now.

Can't wait for an enjoyable walk with your dog!

“Always put the dog first”

Hey there! My name is Christina, and my life has involved animals for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I was unable to have a pet dog, but that didn’t stop me from having a variety of other pets— birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, frogs, etc. Nowdays, I volunteer my time working with local rescue dogs at Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue. I’m in my second year of doing this. I also spend a lot of time with horses and am in my tenth year of riding!

“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.

Dog Walking in Marlboro Township

Marlboro is a family-friendly city in central New Jersey that has some woofderful activities for pups and their people. There are lots of dog-friendly parks, and a couple restaurants, and with at least 6 veterinarians in town, your pup is sure to have a fun and safe adventure here! Most of the town has pedestrian-safe sidewalks, as well, for a casual stroll.

Marlboro’s most fab-woof-lus park is the Marlboro Dog Park at the Community Complex right in the middle of town. You’ll find everything you need for a day of romping, including waste bags and a watering hole, and there’s a barking lot nearby in the Recreation Center. Do note that there are no separate play areas for small dogs. The Dog Park is open every day from dawn to dusk, rain or shine.

Ready to scarf down some kibble? Grab a burger at Burger Bros on CR-520. There are seven outdoor tables where your fluffy friend can join you. You can try the traditional burger, an Oceanside seafood burger, a turkey burger, or one of their fresh wraps or salads. There’s something for everypawdy.

If you’re looking for a place that’s child-friendly and fur-child-friendly, Marlboro will definitely have something for you.

Marlboro Town Center

If you’re in Marlboro, take the pawportunity to head to the Town Center neighborhood, where you’ll find space to run and stroll. The Municipal Complex has a tot lot for the human pups, shuffleboard, and walking paths. You can walk your dog on-leash all around the area. If you and Fido are looking to watch some sports action, you might even catch a Rec Center soccer match or a Pop Warner football game. At the Recreation Way Park, you can watch the kids play in the tot lot or basketball court while the pup hangs out, leashed by your side. You’ll also find Big Brook Park in this neighborhood, a 432-acre open space. Leashes are required, but there’s plenty of area for stretching your paws. Perhaps the best part of Big Brook Park is the trailhead to the Henry Hudson Trail. The Henry Hudson Trail is a 24-mile trail that connects the Highlands to Freehold, NJ. The old railway trail is paved with asphalt and meanders through the wooded areas of town. It’s puptastic for dog-walking because, despite being mostly blacktop, it’s also mostly shaded. Keep in mind that the path may be shared by cyclists and skateboarders. If all that wasn’t pawsome enough, you can sit with your dog on the terrace of Osteria and enjoy some of the best Italian food in town.

In the Morganville area of town, you’ll find the Union Hill Recreation Area, which is equipped with softball fields, a tot lot, and walking paths. It’s a puptastic place to stroll. If you’re super lucky, your pooch just might catch a prized foul ball. Nearby, off of Union Hill Road, you’ll also find Hawkins Road Park, which has basketball and tennis courts, a tot lot, and open fields for walking. If you’re looking for something small and quieter, try Woodcliff Park, a pawfect place to play with the kids, both human and furry. No matter which of the three parks you pick, remember that your dog must stay on the leash, and there are no waste stations, so be sure to keep a bag handy.

Wickatunk

In the Wickatunk area of Marlboro, you’ll find farms and open space tucked in between houses. You’ll also find the Wickatunk Recreation Area. Once upon a time, this now 71-acre park was the Marlboro Airport, but now you can find lovely fields and forests where you and Fido can frolic. Dogs must stay on-leash, but there is plenty of space to walk about. Also, ticks are a real problem on the East Coast, so you’ll want to take precautions before enjoying the park. If your pup is a wanna-be farmdog, Baymar Farms allows leashed dogs and their owners to watch horseback riding lessons and horse shows on the premises. Your dog must be well-behaved and comfortable around horses. Just before the turn-off for Baymar, you’ll also find another trailhead for the Henry Hudson Trail, but this one does not offer any nearby parking.

Holmdel Park is a county gem! Just a short 20-minute drive from Marlboro in the town of Holmdel, you’ll find this beautiful 566-acre woofderland. While the park must be enjoyed on-leash, you won’t run out of new sights and smells. There are 9.49 miles of trails to enjoy, including a light walking path, a fitness trail, and trails for cyclists and equestrians. Most are in wooded areas that provide plenty of shade for your pup. The David C. Shaw Arboretum is also a great place to enjoy a good bone (or a picnic). When you’re feeling worn out, sit on a bench and watch ducks and turtles in the pond. In the spring, the beauty of the trees blossoming around the lake looks like something out of a furrytail. In the winter, Holmdel Park is a local favorite for sledding. Adventurous pups are welcome to join in the fun (or just roll in the snow).

Thompson Park is a 667-acre open space that features historical buildings, walking trails, fields, meadows, and even an off-leash dog park. You can enjoy Thompson Park year-round, starting at 7 AM. There are 14 miles of trails easily accessible from the Old Orchard area of the park. From the Filly Run area, you’ll find access to another 4.9-mile trail, a paved loop. You and your dog can trot along any of the park trails together, as long as you use a leash and a waste bag, when needed. Of course, any dog will tell you the best part of the park is the off-leash dog area in the Three Barn section of the park. The 1.5-acre dog park has separate play areas for big dogs and small dogs under 35 pounds. If your pup needs to lap up some water, you’ll find fountains at the nearby Creative Arts Center. You’ll find potties for the humans there, as well.
