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!
