“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!

While this puts the state of New Jersey in the top 10 of lowest pet ownership rates in the country, it is paramount to remember that the state is also the most densely populated state in the United States. There may very well be more pet owners in Montclair, New Jersey, than similar sized cities elsewhere.

A good number of the pets in Montclair, New Jersey, are dogs. To cater to the dog owners in the area, the township of Montclair sports an off-leash dog park. The Brookdale Dog Park has been very well received by the locals and is divided into a section for small dogs and a huge play area for large dogs. The park is fully fenced and offers amenities such as agility equipment, waste stations, water fountains and more.

There are various hiking trails in the regional parks and conservations in the Montclair, New Jersey, area for those who fancy a more challenging outing with their dog(s).

The Woodbridge area is very dog friendly, in fact, they “tolerate” people, but “welcome” dogs.  Just Jakes is an indoor/outdoor eatery that welcomes your pup at any of the outdoor tables.  After lunch, trot over to the Woodbridge Dog Park, where they offer two separate fenced-in areas that really pamper your pooch. Watering stations, waste bags, plenty of shade, gazebos, and agility equipment. Now what dog could resist that?  Follow this dog-lite-full time with a stop at the Woof Gang Bakery.  Doggie ice cream, and dog cookies will make any tail wag. Last but not least, if your dog is in need of a bath, you can do that yourself right there in the Pamper Your Pup Spa.  Now, don’t you wish you were a dog?

Don’t wait for national love your dog day- make any day special by taking your furry child to Mills Reservation. This is a perfect spot to burn off energy, so your dog won’t have to blame the cat for the chewed up shoes. There are great walking trails surrounded by woods, which offers a different environment than most dog walking areas. This is an ideal choice for dogs that are not dog friendly, as it is an on leash walking trail. Puppy’s birthday coming up? Stop by the Pupcakes Bakery, where you can order a doggie birthday cake or pick up some treats that are made especially for pups.
