“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.

Hi there. My name is Dan. I go to school at GW, and I'm looking to walk some local pooches to help pay for school. I'm new to the world of professional pet care, but I'm no stranger to caring for dogs. I have a basset hound mix named Bon Bon back home (who I miss like crazy) that I've loved and cared for the past 8 years. I've also had experience sitting and walking dogs for neighbors and relatives. I look forward to getting out to meet some new pups and brighten their days.

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 South Orange

Dog lovers enjoy living and spending time in South Orange, just 20 miles west of New York City. If Fido is not a city-savvy pup, the tranquil neighborhoods of South Orange are perfect. You can walk over to Farrell Park and let your pooch run around in the ballfield and chase a toy.  Walking laps through the gardens will also give you some extra exercise, or you can relax on the shaded benches. 

Going out for lunch with Fido at the Town Hall Deli is great if you are craving soup and a sandwich. When the weather is warm, you can sit at one of the outdoor tables and chat with friends while your pup relaxes with a bowl of water. 

Pampered pups want to look their best, so plan to visit to Pet Wants with Fido where you can buy healthy dog food and homemade treats. You can also buy collars, leashes, and clothes for your furry companion. Another option for dog food is Zen Pets where the owners are friendly and knowledgeable, and will help you and your pooch find the best food for his needs.

Taking care of Fido’s medical needs is quick and easy if you visit the only veterinarian clinic in town,  South Orange Animal Hospital. In addition to medical care, the office offers prescription diets and medications.  

Whether you have one pup or several furry family members, spending quality time walking and playing with the pups will keep them and you healthy and happy.
