“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 River Vale

River Vale is township located in the northeastern part of New Jersey. This town of fewer than 10,000 residents is an ideal place for a person with a canine buddy to live or visit. Only one veterinary clinic operates within the township. It provides routine veterinary care and can handle most emergency situations. However, after-hours emergencies can be treated at any of a number of 24-hour veterinary hospitals within a short drive of River Vale. 

In addition, River Vale has numerous places for a person and a leashed pup to go out and get a healthy dose of exercise. The township has three small public parks with green areas for some leashed excursions outdoors. The Poplar Road Wildlife Sanctuary has eighteen acres of woods, meadows, and dirt trails for a hiker and pup. Dogs must remain on-leash while in the sanctuary grounds. River access makes Poplar a popular destination for anglers, so bring your rod and reel and cast a few lines! 

For a more ambitious hike, a person and pup will want to head over to the Palisades Interstate Park, located twelve miles southeast of River Vale. It is comprised of 2,500 acres of recreation and conservation space and attracts visitors who want to boat, hike, and enjoy the scenic views along the Hudson River. Palisades has over thirty miles of trails which range in difficulty from easy to challenging.  The two longest trails -- the Long Path and Shore Trail -- span the entire twelve-mile length of the park.  Dogs must remain on-leash while on the trails.
