“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 Verona

Verona, NJ is just twenty miles from New York City, but this small town is the perfect place to press "paws" on the big city grind! The township has a real neighborly vibe, and a strong community spirit -- many people who grow up here come back to raise their own families. The town’s civic pride is showcased during the many community events it hosts throughout the year -- you and your pooch are welcome to wander through the regular craft markets in the park, and summer visitors might even catch a free concert. Walking through Verona’s charming downtown, you might notice a creeping sense of deja vu -- that’s because several scenes for The Sopranos were shot here!

There’s no designated dog park in Verona, but it’s still a fantastically fur-friendly place! You and your four-legged pal won’t lack for on-leash exercise options -- the township is surrounded by pawesome county parks and reservations, and its community park is the jewel in Verona’s crown. In terms of pet care, there are two veterinary clinics in town, and 24-hour care is available in nearby Caldwell. And if your furry friend needs a fenced area to run free in, don’t worry -- you’ll find plenty of furrific dog parks just a short drive away!

Verona Park is an absolute mutts-visit! The park is a popular spot for wedding photographs, and it’s easy to see why- the ornamental bridge over the serene, man made lake is stunning, and the mature trees and well maintained gardens just add to the picture. The one mile loop trail around the lake is well frequented by local dog owners, so you and your buddy might make some friends on your walk! Afterwards, you two can chow down at Avenue Bistro Pub. This local gem serves up a seriously special steak sandwich, and wagging tails are welcome outside.

Sat on right on the border of Verona and Caldwell, Hilltop Reservation is right in your backyard -- so you’d be barking mad not to check it out! Hilltop is a nice hike at any time of the year, but the preserve is at its best in fall, when the natural New Jersey forest bursts into a blaze of bright color. The trails here are best for a nice, short hike -- the longest is just under two miles -- and most don’t have an incline, making a trip here an accessible day out for pooches of all ages and abilities. Remember to bring bags and water!

At 400 acres, Eagle Rock Reservation isn’t the largest preserve in the area, but it’s still a pawfect place for you and your pup to get back to nature! Like the trails in Hilltop Reservation, the paths here are scenic, well-shaded, and accessible to beginners, although they're a little long for inexperienced hikers. Eagle Rock has one big advantage though -- it’s known for its breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. In addition, the yellow trail runs all the way back to Verona Park! Be sure to bring bug spray, or you and your pooch will be scratching all the way home!

No bones about it, a trip to Brookdale Dog Park is sure to get your furry friend’s tail wagging! There’s enough space here for even the most energetic pooch to leap about to their heart's content. The park has three areas -- one for small dogs, one for large dogs, and one for pups who need a bit of time to calm down. Both the small and large dog areas have their own doggy agility equipment, so fitter four-legged pals are guaranteed a thorough and entertaining workout! Bags and water are provided, so just bring your buddy and prepare to play.

If you and your pooch are looking for a little variety in your off-leash activities, why not check out Watsessing Park Dog Run? The dog park isn’t quite as large the one in Montclair, but there’s still plenty of room to run around in, or for a spirited game of catch or tug-of-war. There’s a separate small dog area, so your pup can play and socialize no matter their size, and the park has recently added a doggy obstacle course! Tired owners are sure to appreciate the ample seating, and waste bags and drinking water are both provided by the park.
