    “Puppy Love!!!”

    Hi, my name is Gene and I am a pet Dad to Buddy a 4.5 yr old Yorkie. Buddy is a rescue and has saved me as much as I have saved him. Pets are family and should be treated as such. Rest assured, if your pet is in my care, they will be treated as if I was in possession of your child. Thank you for the opportunity to be of service.

    Hello my name is Stephanie. I have owned dogs from a child and would walk or house sit my neighbors dogs when they were on vacation. I currently own two dogs names Cheyenne 15 years old and Ares 13 years old and I took a course in grooming but I am not certified but have been grooming my own dogs for over 15 years. I volunteer online raising money for various dog rescues. Safety is my top priority and I hope to meet your best friend soon.

    Hello my name is Chris and I have had pets in my life since childhood. I often pet sit or walk dogs for friends and family when they are away on vacations. I know how important it is that your dog gets the best care and love that they need. I will make sure they are fed, played with, and cleaned up after. I will make sure that your house is in the same condition as you left it. I look forward to meeting you and your canine companion!

    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!

Since I was a little girl, I will always had a dog to take care off, so I have a lot of experience with our furry friends. I’m happy to play with your dog to make him happy and have fun.

    “Every pet is a family member we choose”

    *Temporary Hiatus* Dogs have been in my life since the day I was born. Between myself and my family and close friends, I've cared for and walked dogs ranging from Chihuahua to St. Bernard and ages of a few months to senior. I am a current dog mom to a young Lab/Pitt mix who is my best girl! Every dog brings a smile to my face and I love seeing them smile back! I truly believe a happy dog brings happiness into your home on a daily basis and love to share in keeping your pup happy.

    Meredith is an excellent dog-walker! Zoltan took to her immediately, and she knows what she is doing. She is very professional, walks at a brisk pace, and handled Zoltan very well. He is a grown pitbull mix and around 65 pounds and she had no problem walking him. We are going to try to book her again for all of his walks!

    Parks Lake is a puptastic place to bring the entire family, including children, seniors, and doggos. This multi-use park features a 0.7-mile paved walking track that encircles a small pond, a gazebo that hosts free summer concerts and other programs, and benches all around where you can just chill and hang out with your pup. You'll also find a semi-private, man-made beach that's only open to members during the summer months. The lights are kept on all night at Parks Lake, making it a safe place to go for a leashed walk or jog at any time of the day.

    Go on a nature getaway with Fido at the Farny State Park in nearby Rockaway Township. Explore the great outdoors of New Jersey as you and your pup follow the various hiking trails that meander across the 589-acre natural area consisting of a mixed oak harwood forest, streams, and swamps. Before entering the park, you will see the Splitrock Reservoir, which provides drinking water to Jersey City. Other activities that are available at the Farny State Park include birdwatching, fishing, and cross-country skiing in the winter. The park follows a “carry in, carry out” policy, so be sure to pick up after Fido. Bags are supplied throughout the site in case you forget to bring your own.

    If you and Fido find yourselves in this neighborhood in the nearby town of Dover, be sure to stop by scenic Hurd Park. A popular spot for prom and wedding photos, Hurd Park is home to several cherry blossoms that line both sides of a winding stream, making it a truly picturesque location. Though beautiful all year round, it is recommended to visit during the spring and fall. Don't forget to take photos with your pooch at this puptacular park! About a mile from Hurd Park is Crescent Field, where you can go for a leashed stroll on the paved walking paths and have a picnic at the picnic tables.

    Is Fido feeling lonely and in need of some canine friends? Then take him to the Happy Hound Playground in the adjacent township of Denville! Located within the Veterans Memorial Field complex, the Happy Hound Playground is a fenced-in, off-leash area where Fido can play fetch and run around with other doggos in a safe environment. Do note that this dog park is only open to members with annual passes, which can be obtained from the police department by both residents and non-residents. While you're waiting for Fido's application to be approved, you can take him for a leashed walk around Veterans Memorial Field instead.
