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!

“Flippin’ Pawsome Dogs Deserve the Flippin’ Best”

Hi, I'm Jackie and I've been a dog lover since birth...seriously, recently unearthed home movies show my parents teaching me to say "dog sit" at 9-months-old. In addition to Wag, I own my own dog training business. I own three dogs: an American Pit Bull Terrier named Kid, a poodle/terrier mix named Charlie and a working-line German Shepherd named Grady. I look forward to meeting your pets and giving them the same care and love I give to my own dogs on walks.

Dog Walking in Riverdale

Riverdale invites folks with a furry family member to its small community nestled at the base of some rolling hills of greenery. The Pequannock River forms a natural boundary for the borough. It is an inviting place to visit or maybe stay for a while. Two veterinary clinics operate in the borough, offering both routine and specialized dermatological care. Other emergency hospitals and a variety of specialists are just a short drive away.

The small community has three dedicated spaces for outdoor exercise, and all of them welcome dogs! Freedom Park has a large green open spot with a few picnic sites. The playground dominates this small oasis. Appelt Memorial Park is the pawfect place for you and Fido to commune with nature as you explore its wooded path near the Pequannock River.  

For more extensive hikes,  a journey seventeen miles north will take you and your canine friend to Ramapo Valley County Reservation. This large recreation and conservation space of 4,000+ acres has twenty-four dedicated hiking trails. Leashed dogs are allowed on all the trails. A network of five looped trails attracts beginner hikers looking for an easier trek through the woods. 

Ramapo is also a haven for many different species of wildlife, including squirrels, deer, and (occasionally) black bears! You can also pitch a tent or park a trailer here and stay awhile in one of three campgrounds. Dogs may enjoy a camping experience with their humans as long as they are kept on-leash.
