“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!

Hi my name is Jillian and I am a Certified Veterinary Assistant. I have experience working in ASPCA's Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital. After working there I went on to walk dogs, I found I enjoyed it much more because I was able to bond more with the dogs and it brought me so much joy to learn their unique personalities. I treat your babies like my babies. I respect all your wishes for your dog and I respect what your dog likes and doesn't like. I bring a lot of compassion, joy, and lots of positive energy to your doggy. I assure you that you and your doggy will be happy with me.

The Ridgewood Bark Park is located at 1173 E. Ridgewood Avenue. This dog park is within the large Saddle River County Park. It is a fully fenced, large enclosure for off-leash exercise and socialization. The small dogs have their own separate play place. The ground of the dog park is a mixture of gravel, grass, and dirt. The human companions don’t have many places to sit while watching their canine friends, though, so keep that in mind. No drinking water is available here, so don’t forget those water bottles! Waste baggies are stocked, though, so no need to bring yours. The dog park is close to a creek and a duck pond, which are both pawpular spots for pups to make a splash in warm weather.

The dog park has water fountains so humans and canines both can get a cool sip at the same time. There are plenty of places where the human companions can sit and supervise their pups. Agility equipment gives dogs a chance to train or just have something different to try.
