Paramus is a small community situated in Bergen County, New Jersey. Although Paramus is small, it's home to six veterinary clinics to attend to all of Fido's routine and non-routine care. Visitors should know that all twelve of the municipal parks here ban dogs. Better to head on over for some eats at the restaurants in Paramus that welcome dogs.

Diners with pups can enjoy one of 75 craft, specialty, and seasonal beers at one of the outdoor tables. Miller's is open for lunch and dinner with late night hours.  If wine is more your thing, head on over to Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar, located at 1 Garden State Plaza Blvd. This trendy restaurant offers visitors an extensive wine list, as well as some interesting and savory burgers and fries. Three outdoor tables will seat you and your canine companion.

Saddle River Area Bike Path, with an access point at Ridgewood Avenue, has about six miles of asphalt trail for a leashed walk.

This trail extends into some neighboring municipalities, including Ridgewood and Glen Rock.

    #1 Paramus

    Although Paramus' municipal parks ban dogs, this community didn't fur-get about its canine residents! Van Saun Dog Park makes it fun to be a dog, with its fully fenced enclosure for some leash-free running. This dog park has a gray gravel ground which doesn't get a dog that dirty on one of those rainy days. The small dogs have their own place to play, too. Water may be supplied at the dog park, but be prepared anyway on a first visit. Some locals have reported that water was absent or the source wasn't working. Waste baggies are stocked, though. Human companions may moan at the lack of seating and shade, but this is no problem for a furry friend!

    Looking for a dog park that's a little different? You'll find it in West Milford, located 28 miles from Paramus! West Milford Dog Park is privately owned by the Pequannock Feed & Supply store. A person can pick up some dog food and let their dog get back to nature in this fully-fenced acre meant for leash-free fun. The owners of the feed store generously provided an area to keep the small dogs safe, too. This is a natural terrain of grass and dirt, so it can get muddy after a rain. Luckily, there's a hose on-site if you don't want a muddy ride home. Many trees abound, and make for great shade in the summer sun. This dog park will have your dog pooped with all its great agility equipment, including a tunnel, A-frame, and jumps. There is no fee to use the dog park, but chipping in helps keep the dog park maintained.
