“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.

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!

Dog Walking in Old Tappan

Old Tappan has a small-town charm with enough amenities to make it an ideal place for a person with a canine family member. No veterinary clinics operate within the borough's boundaries, but there is no shortage of routine and emergency veterinary services just a short drive away. The surrounding communities have dozens of veterinarians, including those specializing in areas like cancer treatment.

In addition, Old Tappan has many places for a person and a leashed pup to check out together. The Bonnabel Nature Park is a very small piece of wooded grounds. It has fewer than four acres and features a long path through the woods. The path is an earthen walkway and takes a hiker along the Hackensack River. Several picnic tables make this a good destination for a lunch or snack outside with your furry pal.

Rockleigh Woods Sanctuary is located five miles east of Old Tappan. Rockleigh has 200 wooded acres of recreational green space for you and your pup to explore together. Rockleigh has several trails consisting of five miles for hiking with your leashed canine companion.

The Poplar Road Wildlife Sanctuary is located in the adjoining community of River Vale. Poplar offers more green spaces for you and your leashed dog to experience. Several trails wind through the forests. Poplar has river access, which makes it pawpular with anglers and water lovers. Back in town, Oakes Park attracts residents to its landscaped grounds, which include a beautiful fountain, a gazebo, and several benches.

Westwood is located three miles south of Old Tappan. West Woof Dog Run is situated in Pascack Brook County Park. This dog park has two fully fenced enclosures for dogs to shed the leash and have a tail-waggin' good time! A separately fenced section keeps the small dogs safe while they play with their diminutive buddies. Drinking water is available on-site, and water bowls are provided by the dog park. A hose helps fill up those kiddie pools when the summer months make wearing a fur coat a hot proposition. The ground is covered with mulch and dirt. A good rinse off with the hose is all that's needed to spruce up for the ride home. The human companions appreciate the numerous benches positioned around the enclosures.

Ridgewood is located nine miles west of Old Tappan. Ridgewood Bark Park adds some woof and wonder into your pup's ordinary day. This completely fenced dog play space has two enclosures. One section is set aside for large dogs and a second for the smaller pups. A double-gated entry prevents an overstimulated pup from heading out the wrong direction.

A few pieces of agility equipment allow dogs to squeeze in a bit of training with their playtime. Mature trees lend their shade and keep the human companions relatively comfy even on one of those hot summer days.

It is a short 22-mile drive south of Old Tappan to Montclair. Brookdale Dog Park has so many fun things for a pup to experience off-leash! The dog park features two completely fenced areas -- one for large dogs and a second one reserved for smaller doggos. The ground here is a hygienic gravel mulch. This dog park doesn't have the mud problems which plague many of the grassy dog parks in the area. Pieces of agility equipment are an added bonus. Water is available within the dog park so a forgotten water bottle is not a disaster. Pet parents will find many benches positioned under shade trees to rest on.
