“The best care for your best friend”

I've loved dogs for as long as I can remember and my dream is to work with them as a living. I am currently taking classes with Catch Canine Trainers Academy to become a dog trainer and I volunteer weekly at St Hubert's to walk dogs. I would love to walk your dog, take them on hikes, play fetch with them, or just chill if that's what they prefer.

I am a life-long dog (animal) lover and owner. I have had my own dogs for 20 years, I have fostered a couple times, and volunteered with an inner city shelter which has provided me with a great deal of experience with all sizes, ages, breeds, and temperaments. Above all, and most importantly, dogs are my favorite and I treat them all like they're my own. I consider many of the dogs I walk like best friends and genuinely love them and look forward to walking with them :)

Dog Walking in Netcong

This motto of this quaint little borough is, "All Roads Lead to Netcong". Netcong is, in fact, well-connected by New Jersey's transit system to other small places and much bigger ones. The little borough lacks a veterinarian working within its boundaries. The adjoining larger communities provide plenty of options located within a short drive.

The borough maintains three green spaces for a person and a leashed canine friend to visit.  DiRenzo Park offers a patch of green space, a playground, a few trees, and a scenic view of Lake Musconetcong. The lake provides plenty of opportunities for residents and visitors to fish or launch a watercraft. The borough also maintains a space to launch boats. Dogs are not allowed on the beach, though.  

A great adventure awaits you and your leashed pup just three miles west of Netcong. Here is where you'll find Allamuchy Mountain State Park. This state park has over 9,000 acres of land set aside for conservation and recreation. Allamuchy has fourteen miles of marked trails and twenty more miles of unmarked ones. Most of these trails are moderate to rugged in difficulty. This state park is a place where the local Boy Scouts learn to rock climb, so there is some elevation to contend with.  

Next to Allamuchy is Stephens State Park. Stephens is only nine miles north of Netcong. This state park has six miles of unmarked trails. This is one of the state parks that allows you to bring your furry friend along when you want to camp. Pet-friendly campsites must be reserved in advance of your stay. An additional fee is charged for their use. A great stay in the woods is in order before taking that road back to Netcong!

Mount Olive is located four miles south of Netcong. The Mount Olive Dog Park is one of the many outdoor amenities of Turkey Brook Park. This fully fenced pup playground has 1.5 acres of grass enclosed for off-leash freedom and fun. A half-acre is reserved so the small dogs can play safely. A double-gated entry is another good feature. People will find plenty of picnic tables to park in while their furry pal explores the new domain. The canopy is a refuge from the sun on those summer days! Waste baggies are supplied for those necessary pickups. The main park offers more things for a person and a leashed pup to do. A 1.5-mile asphalt pathway and five marked trails through the woods are adventures for another day.

Roxbury is located four miles east of Netcong. Roxbury Dog Park offers your pup a chance to rid that leash and sniff out a few new four-legged pals!

Pieces of agility equipment, including a bridge and a tunnel, make it an extra special fun time. A decorative fire hydrant adds some flair to the place. The human companions appreciate the benches and can find shade along the park's perimeter. Registration with the Board of Health is required to use the dog park.

A water fountain is a great convenience.  Many pieces of agility equipment make this an ideal spot to sharpen those competitive skills or just have more to do. Ramps, A-frames, a tunnel and an obstacle course will challenge your sometimes lazy pup. People appreciate the many benches shaded by large old trees. This dog park is for residents only.

Morris Plains is located sixteen miles east of Netcong. Greystone Dog Park in Central Park gives dogs a lot of real estate to run and explore. This dog park has five acres dedicated to dogs' off-leash exercise and socialization. It includes a small dog area, two large dog enclosures, and one fenced wooded area for all dogs and their people. One of the large dog sections is usually closed for maintenance and is rotated as needed. Pieces of agility equipment, including an obstacle course, are permanently placed in the small dog section.
