Hi, I'm Jackie and I've been a dog lover since birth...seriously, recently unearthed home movies show my parents teaching me to say "dog sit" at 9-months-old. In addition to Wag, I own my own dog training business. I own three dogs: an American Pit Bull Terrier named Kid, a poodle/terrier mix named Charlie and a working-line German Shepherd named Grady. I look forward to meeting your pets and giving them the same care and love I give to my own dogs on walks.

Dog Walking in Oakland

Oakland’s historic Van Allan House, built in the 1740s, served as a stopover for George Washington and his troops in 1777. The town later developed as a colony on the Ramapo River for a few families escaping the summer heat of New York. A nearby training camp for boxers trained Joe Louis and Sugar Ray Robinson. Today, the industrial community looks after its pup community with two veterinary clinics poised to keep your pooch healthy and happy.

The 1400 acres of the Ramapo State Forest is a dog-tastic place for a mountainside forest hike. Wear your hiking boots for good traction on any one of the eleven trails that offer challenging climbs and descents, with some scenic views of the New York City skyline.  The trails range in length from 0.3 to 6.4 miles with a hike just right for every pup.  All trails are leveled as "difficult," with the easiest trail being the Lakeshore Path that winds around Ramapo Lake.

Your pooch will enjoy taking you for a visit to J-B Pet Supplies to help you select a premium brand of dog food and other pet care needs at pawsomely discounted prices. After your adventure, stop in at the Lenape Valley Diner for dinner. This locally owned family restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and offer two pet-friendly outdoor tables where Fido can join you to eat. Bring your pooch and enjoy the beauty of the parks in Oakland.

The 20-acre Baldwin Sanctuary, located off of Ramapo Valley Road, offers a small trail system that will make your pup wag it like he means it. The sniff-tastic trails meander through a forested wetland with plenty of bird life to observe along the way. Trails pass along the Ramapo River where you might spot some fossils along the bank. Parking is very limited on the edge of the road and you may want to arrange to have someone drop you off and pick you up after your adventure. The area is also easy to reach by a canoe from one of the boat landings nearby.

The Veterans Park is a tribute to those who served the country. For your pup who might not know as much about history, the park offers a large open grassy area and trees waiting to be sniffed. You and your pooch will enjoy a pleasant walk through this park where he can investigate the  sights and smells of the place. The open area is a great place for some fetching or Frisbee. This park does not have recreational facilities or picnic areas, but is a great place to just enjoy the outdoors.

The Sicomac Avenue Woods Park, located in the nearby town of Wyckoff, is just seven miles from Oakland. Built around a dozen ponds connected by brooks and streams, the woods offers a sniff-tastic stroll for your pup. The park has a scenic nature path that you and your pup will enjoy, as well as a quarter-mile track. Bring along your picnic to enjoy after your walk for a paw-some day. The Minisink Indian Trail from the Delaware River to the Atlantic Ocean also passes through this neighborhood, and local history tells us that the famous Hackensack Indian Chief Oratam is buried here.

Franklin Swamp Acq, just eight miles from Oakland, offers parks, playgrounds and recreation opportunities in the town of Franklin Lakes. There are two primary hiking trails that promise a pup-tastic walk. The main trail is the 1.5-mile Shoreline Loop Trail, which encircles the entire Upper Lake and Lagoon from the parking area and across the dam. The Island Bridges Trail is about a half a mile in length, and heads back to the Shoreline Loop Trail across two floating bridges. Pull on your good hiking boots and get your pup leashed for a pawsome walk on these sniff-tastic nature trails.
