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

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for 4 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.

Dog Walking in Wayne

Wayne, New Jersey is a great town to explore with Fido in tow. From the many lakes and streams to the bustling downtown streets, there's a ton to get out and see!

If you're in the mood to relax and play at a dog park, you will not be disappointed! Wayne offers several pet-friendly parks. Wayne Dog Park, a free park open from dawn to dusk daily, has a fenced-in gravel area for dogs to socialize, along with water and doggie bags.

There's also Terhune Park, an on-leash park with wide, grassy spaces and paths through the woods. This peaceful park is beautifully situated right next to a lake, offering scenic views and a chance to glimpse the wildlife. It's also the final resting place of some very notable dogs, including the Wayne Police Department's fallen canine members, and "Lad," who was the inspiration for "Lassie"!

In addition, Wayne offers a dog park with two separate large and small dog areas at the Friends & Family Park. Use of this park requires a $5 one-time fee and paperwork proving vaccination status. There are also several great nature trails in the area, like at "Joe D" Memorial Park, or Laurelwood Arboretum, a 30-acre botanical property that welcomes on-leash dogs.

Wayne Dog Park, located inside Wayne Friends and Family Park, is a great place for dogs to kick up their heels and run like the wind! The park is a large, fenced enclosure. There are drinking fountains and bags for cleaning up. The park is paved with pea gravel. While this doesn’t bother most dogs, you should watch your pet’s paws so he won’t have to pause his playtime due to an injury. Wayne Friends and Family Park is a great place to walk dogs who need more distance to work off their energy.

Tucked deep into the Pines Lake neighborhood of Wayne is Tehrune Park. This odd park is a beautiful place to visit. First the abundant beauty: paths to stroll, water to play in, and trees for shade! The area contains walking trails under trees, a large grassy area, and access to the lake for swimming. Dogs are supposed to be on leash throughout the park unless swimming. The park also houses a small dog graveyard, where Albert Tehrune’s famous collies and some of Wayne’s police canines are laid to rest.

Wayne’s major residential neighborhood houses permanent residents and university students in a tiny radius. Where space is at a premium, dog lovers can feel their pooches are being crowded out--except at Bensi Ristorante. Bensi Ristorante welcomes dogs at their outdoor tables, where you and your best friend can share a slice, salad, sandwich, and more. Water bowls and ice are provided upon request. The people watching from the outdoor tables can’t be beat. The central placement of this restaurant makes Bensi Ristorante a favorite in this busy Wayne neighborhood.

High Mountain Reserve Park will make your dog sit up and beg to be taken again. Located near the William Patterson University of New Jersey’s Wayne Campus, in the William U neighborhood, this reserve park contains miles of trails and amazing views. Clip on your dog’s leash and climb to the peak of High Mountain for breathtaking views of Newark and Manhattan. As tempting as the remote location is, keep your dog on-leash, as the trails near the summit are some of the most popular mountain biking trails in the area.

Norvin Green State Forest is only a 20-minute drive from Wayne, NJ. The trip will be more than worth it for you and your dog. This large state forest has 27 hiking and biking trails. A large portion of these are ranked “difficult”, so be sure to read up on your trail choice before tackling it! If your dog has short legs or a low exercise tolerance, it’s still worth the drive. Norvin Green’s rich wildlife experience, coupled with the variety of natural settings, makes it as stimulating and pleasant for a sniff-tastic stroll as for a day-long ramble.
