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.
