“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.

I was raised on a farm in California, and I have been around dogs since I was a very young child. I have cared for dogs both professionally and for family, roommates and neighbors. I LOVE dogs, and I think they can sense when they meet a dog lover, which probably explains why they tend to love me as much as I love them. I look forward to spending time with your furry friend!

I'm great with dogs! I've walked and dog sat for friends and family over the years and volunteered in animal shelters, and want to pass on my experience and love to your dog. I'll make sure your dog has a fun walk, and gets his or her, ahem, 'business' done. I'm sure I'll love your dog and they'll love me (but if they don't, no worries, they're still a good dog)!

Dog Walking in North Arlington

North Arlington is a suburban borough of northern New Jersey. Located near Newark, North Arlington is just 4 miles across the Hudson River from New York’s Manhattan. Once a copper mining town, it is today densely residential while retaining a small-town feel. The town is bordered by the famed New Jersey Meadowlands with its sports complex and park, and there are several smaller open spaces available for all the activities Fido loves: running, playing and relaxing.

Head to Riverside County Park, which straddles North Arlington and its neighbor Lyndhurst along the Passaic River, and covers 85 acres of level, grassy area. Inside is an off-leash dog park for your pooch to socialize and run off some of her excess energy. The dog park features toys, water bowls and a water filling station, plus shaded benches for the humans. Riverside Park also offers dining areas and walking paths, perfect for on-leash fun for you and your pup.

While no one expects you or your pup to have health problems while enjoying North Arlington, accidents and illnesses do occur. Know that there are at least a dozen veterinarians and veterinary hospitals in the area in and around North Arlington, including one mobile vet, and all aim to get and keep your furry bestie in tip top shape and ready to play. Arf!

The Passaic River flows alongside this neighborhood of North Arlington, and features the Passaic River Park along its banks. This small but relaxing green space has an abundance of wildlife. You and your woofer will enjoy watching the birds while strolling along the riverbank. The park features grassy and wooded landscapes, picturesque bridges and is quiet, making it a perfect spot for skiddish pups. Open 24 hours, the park is lighted and welcomes all dogs on-leash. For more outdoor fun, head to the Vinnie Macaluso Park, named after a well-loved local physician. Primarily a small playground park, it does feature enough trees and grassy areas to satisfy your fur-buddy’s need to romp for an hour or so while the small humans swing and climb.

The Kingsland neighborhood in the nearby township of Lyndhurst is home to the dog-friendly Richard W DeKorte Park. This park is part of an ambitious project to renew and preserve the historic Meadowlands area, and provides education and recreation for the people (and dogs!) that visit. Try some of the many nature trails available, from ½ to 3 miles long. You and Fido can also kayak or canoe through the wetlands to view the thousands of birds of all species living there. While on land, your pup must be leashed, and note that she is not allowed to swim in the wetland’s waters. Walk across the marshes on the boardwalks, or do a little catch-and-release fishing with your pawsome pal beside you, then hunker down for a picnic lunch or dinner.

This neighborhood in the nearby town of Lyndhurst is host to the pup-friendly Lyndhurst Municipal Park, a playground park with the added woofer amenities of lots of grass to frolic and roll on, paved and lighted walkways, benches and a fountain. Many activities and concerts are scheduled there, and Fido is welcome to join his humans if he is leashed. Be sure and check for any specific exclusions before you go. Have a sit in the gazebo out of the sun, or take a walk around the looped path. If hunger pangs strike, take a stroll over to City Lounge, a local hangout that features 3 dog-friendly outdoor tables with 2 television sets on the patio, plus a menu sure to please, featuring burgers, wings and shrimp, plus specials du jour. This is a woof-derful spot to hang out with your furry Bestie.

Another one of North Arlington’s nearby communities is Kearny, whose Town Center neighborhood is home to Bone Appetit Barkery, a small shop that features homemade gourmet dog treats, cakes and doggy ice cream. Fido is welcome inside to pick out his own treats, of course. And since you’re in Kearny, make a treat-y day of it by stopping in at Domingo’s Bakery. The treats here are all for humans, but your pup will love joining you at an outside table while you enjoy one of their sweet or savory goodies. The shop specializes in cakes and South American treats like empanadas and cachapas.
