““WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?” I did! :)”

Hi, my name is Ana I’m 31. 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.

Dog Walking in Mountain Lakes

The historic town of Mountain Lakes may be a suburb of New York City, but it boasts a charming, rustic appeal, and is even listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places. With parks, walking trails, dog-friendly restaurants and a highly-rated veterinarian , Mountain Lakes is even more fun to explore when you have your pooch by your side.

Parks are always popular with dogs, and the 547 acre Tourne County Park will no doubt get that tail wagging. This large park spans three municipalities, and offers up an extensive network of hiking trails, with many of them rewarding you with panoramic views of the New York City skyline.

Another pawsome walk to be had is along the Boulevard Trolley Line Path. This paved walking path stretches out for two and a half miles, and follows the exact route of a historic trolley line.

If you and Fido are feeling peckish after all of that walking, head on over to Hapgoods, where you will find five dog-friendly outdoor tables. This eclectic restaurant serves up delicious breakfasts and lunches, and will always have a bowl of water on hand for your pup.

With good walks surrounded by greenery, and delicious food to enjoy afterwards, it is easy to see why dogs have so much fun when spending time in Mountain Lakes.
