I have been walking dogs for over 4 years now. I always make your dogs safety a priority, along with their comfort, emotional and physical well being. I love giving the best walk I can according to your dogs fitness level, I can even take your dog on a jog (weather permitting) or just a leisurely stroll. I always give extra time to settle them back home with refreshed water, treats or meals, practice a few commands, hugs, playtime and babytalk! l look forward to meeting your dog!

“Your friendly neighborhood dog walker”

I started pet sitting when I was in high school. Several of my friends had dogs that I would care for while they were away. To make extra money in college I began to walk and then board a local Shiba Inu; a gig I kept until I started working full time. I have always loved animals, but was unable to have any as a child because of allergies some of my family members have. Now my wife and I currently have two dogs (a beagle and a havanese/poodle mix), three cats, two rabbits, and a conure.

Hi! My name is Karen. I am a huge dog lover, I've never met a dog I didn't love, and make instant friends with the pups I meet. I have had dogs my whole life, including now. I have a rat terrier as well as a super hyper chi-weenie that I rescued from running in traffic. While my dogs are small, I also foster dogs and most of the ones that come to me while awaiting a forever home are pit bulls or other misunderstood pooches. I love them all. I know how much you love your dog, and I will treat them like I would my own. I cant wait to meet your pup!

““WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?” I did! :)”

Hi, my name is Anastasia! I have 3 dogs: a tea cup pomchi and 2 huskies, so I can handle large hyper active dogs just as well as tiny fragile ones that require being extra careful. I do walks, daycare and boardings - if your dog is friendly, they will have a blast playing in a large fully fenced yard. Growing up with dogs since early age I barely spent a day in my life without them by my side, I’m not intimidated neither by breeds nor sizes.I am ready to spend some quality time with your dog :)

“Must hug all the dogs!”

I’ve been dog walking for several years now with over 1300 walks. I have walked pups as small as a rat terrier to as giant as a mastiff. I walk dogs with anxiety and dogs that are aggressive towards humans & other dogs. I have a few pups that I administer medication to. I take what I do very seriously and treat each dog as if they were my own. I’ve never had any incidents (knock on wood)! I have 3 dogs of my own, a Shia Inu mix and the love of my life, a sweet pitbull and a goofy/giant Golden.

“Please let me pet your dog.”

I am a life-long dog owner/dog lover. I began dog sitting for family friends and loved the extra time I got to spend with furry friends. I have watched dogs ranging from a 1 year old pit pull mix to a 17 year old chihuahua. I have given oral medication and dealt with behavioral quirks. I look forward to meeting all the dogs!

Dog Walking in Plainfield

Plainfield is a city historically divided into North and South Plainfield. The city has a few amenities for people with a furry family member. Two veterinary clinics are in town for all a dog's medical needs. This city has four municipal parks, but dogs generally aren't allowed in them. But don't fret just yet! Plainfield is situated in Union County, which boasts 36 parks. The majority of the county parks allow leashed dogs to visit and hike the trails with their human companions. 

Warinanco Park is located nine miles south of Plainfield. This park is a popular place to get outside in the woods and do some hiking. Dogs can enjoy this adventure as long as they remain on-leash. Warinanco has several dedicated trails with varying lengths and degrees of difficulty. Similarly, Watchung Reservation offers people and their leashed dog places to go and enjoy the outdoors. For more wilderness, people and their leashed dogs can visit the Great Swamp National Refuge just ten miles north of Plainfield  

In town, the dog-friendly Brick House Tavern & Tap serves up some brew and bison burgers (among other tasty entrees). Plenty of outdoor patio seating is available for a person dining with a four-legged companion. Dessert of Italian ice or custard can be had at Rita's Italian Ice. This restaurant features an outdoor walk-up service and outdoor tables that are a great resting spot after an active day.

Woofbridge -- er, Woodbridge -- is just 10 miles from Plainfield. The dogs love running leash-free in the grassy dog park near the Alvin Williams Memorial Park. The field is sectioned off so small dogs can play with friends their own size. This park is one your pup will not want to leave! There are balls to chase and agility equipment to try out or train on. No need to remember the water bottle or doggie bags -- this dog park provides what a person with a pup needs. Shaded benches are a great place for pup parents to rest, and a decorative gazebo is also a shaded gathering spot for the human companions.

Linden Dog Park, just 10 miles east of Plainfield, is a great place for a four-legged pal to stretch those paws. Grass cushions those paws in this off-leash dog park.  Small dogs have a smaller spot to have some leash-free fun. The field gets muddy after a rain, so beware if you want clean paws in your car for the ride back to Plainfield. There are doggie and people water fountains here, and poop bags are also supplied by the park.  Be ready for some exercise at this park! There is no place to escape the summer sun -- this park needs a few amenities to make it more comfortable for the human companions. Shaded seating is absent at this dog park. For some exercise on-leash, head to nearby Memorial Field Park. Exploring the walking paths and picnic areas here is the pawfect way to end the day.

Morristown is a little fur-ther afield at 22 miles away, but the trip is well worth it! Lewis Morris Dog Park gives dogs a fully fenced, paved place for their own leash-free exercise and fun. One area is separated for the small dogs. The paved surface doesn't please everyone, but it makes the dog park usable even after a hard rain  The dog park, unfortunately, lacks any places for the people to sit  Water is not available in the dog park, but is close by. Poop bags are at hand and in good supply. Outside the dog park, the main park has some beautiful scenery, so don't forget to snap some pics! The main park offers over ten miles of designated trails for on-leash hikes away from the asphalt and into the woods.
