“Dog walking is no job - it's a passion!”

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 3 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.

I was raised on a farm in California, and I have been around dogs since I was a very young child. I have cared for dogs both professionally and for family, roommates and neighbors. I LOVE dogs, and I think they can sense when they meet a dog lover, which probably explains why they tend to love me as much as I love them. I look forward to spending time with your furry friend!

I'm great with dogs! I've walked and dog sat for friends and family over the years and volunteered in animal shelters, and want to pass on my experience and love to your dog. I'll make sure your dog has a fun walk, and gets his or her, ahem, 'business' done. I'm sure I'll love your dog and they'll love me (but if they don't, no worries, they're still a good dog)!

Dog Walking in Union

Union is a happening city, and a center for business, higher education, and recreation. People and their dogs thrive in a place where so much is dedicated to good living. The town has seven veterinary clinics that keep dogs healthy and can help in any emergency situation. Union has also dedicated considerable space and resources in creating clean and safe parks and places for people and their dogs to exercise and have some fun. Twenty-one parks of varying sizes are scattered throughout the neighborhoods of  Union. Four of the parks have paved walking trails that are accessible. More than half of the parks have picnic tables. A good number, too, have reservable amenities, like pavilions for larger outdoor parties.

For some dog-friendly dining, a person and pup may want to sample some of the food at Van Gogh’s Ear Cafe. The food is described as a “retro-American” style cuisine, but the old world charm combined with the offbeat name captures some of the vitality of the the city. The outdoor tables make for comfortable dining for a person and their furry friend. An outdoor adventure is a short drive out of the city limits to nearby Union County Watchung Reservation. This 2,200-acre nature preserve has many hikes ranging from easy to more challenging. Leashed dogs may enjoy scenery with their person or sit awhile beside the lapping current of the river.

Nine outdoor tables make it a comfortable place to dine. Cafe 401, also on Chestnut Avenue, has a casual ambiance, and a burger and fries eaten outside with a canine friend makes for an easy lunch or dinner. Garden Restaurant on Magie Avenue is open for lunch and dinner. No shortage of great eats here! A quick dessert at the Strawberry Field Self Serve Yogurt is a satisfying way to end a long day of howlin’ good times.
