“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.

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 West Orange

Standing proudly at the peak of the Watchung Mountains, West Orange, NJ is certainly in a sweet spot -- just sixteen miles from Manhattan, and yet surrounded by perfectly preserved nature. The township is perhaps best known as the home of former inventor Thomas Edison, but you don’t need to be a genius to see why West Orange’s 46,000 residents are happy to call it home! Even with a relatively large population, this dynamic and diverse town manages to maintain a strong community spirit. West Orange’s civic pride is clear to see during the many events that take place throughout the year, from music to film to food festivals.

West Orange doesn’t have its own dog park, but it’s still a pretty fur-friendly place! The town has several community parks that are ideal for leashed walks -- Degnan Park is particularly pawpular with local dog owners. If your buddy loves hiking, you’re in luck -- there’s one gorgeous nature reserve right in town, and a couple of others a short drive away. For doggy dining, check out Jimmy Buffs -- they serve up a seriously special Italian hot dog, and welcome wagging tails outside. And if your fur-ball is restless after so long on-leash, don’t worry -- you’ll find plenty of off-leash adventure options a little further afield!

Eagle Rock Reservation

At just over 400 acres, Eagle Rock Reservation isn’t the biggest nature reserve in the area, but it’d still be a huge faux paw not to check it out! Eagle Rock is a nice hike at any time of year, but it’s extra special in fall, when the trees burst into a riot of color. Most of the wooded trails don’t have much of an incline, but rise to the challenge on the steeper path and you’ll be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the New York skyline. Be warned, though -- bug spray is a must in summer, or you and your buddy will be scratching all the way home!

If Eagle Rock is worth a look, South Mountain Reservation is a mutts-visit! Right on the border of West Orange and Maplewood, the trails here are much more extensive and feature beautiful waterfalls and a serene lake. More importantly, though, South Mountain Reservation has its own dog park! There’s plenty of room in both the large and small dog areas for your pooch to run around and burn off some energy, and fitter furry friends are sure to appreciate the doggy agility course. Bags and water are provided, so just bring your pup and prepare to play!

Downtown Caldwell

Caldwell is just a fifteen-minute drive from West Orange, and it’s well worth the gas money to stop in at the puntastically named Pupcake Bakery! You’re sure to find a treat here to make even the pickiest pooch sit up and beg -- they stock everything from healthy everyday rewards to more occasional indulgences, like peanut butter bones and doggy brownies. Afterward, you two can burn it all off in Grover Cleveland Park. A lovely little spot for a leashed walk, this pawesome creekside park features a couple of paved walking paths and some quaint, old-timey footbridges. Don't forget to bring those waste bags!

Of course, owners need to eat too, and you’ll be spoiled for choice of dog-friendly eateries in nearby Montclair! Just Jakes is an excellent place for you and your buddy to chow down -- the quesadillas are delicious, their outdoor patio is large and well-shaded, and they’ll even put out bowls of water on a hot day. If you two fancy something a little different, consider stopping by Pure Pita. This local gem has a pretty extensive Greek menu and caters to canines outside. Or, for a slightly more upscale experience, check out La Petite Parisien, and make sure to sample the macarons!

If you two are looking for a little variety in your off-leash adventures, you’d be barking mad not to check out the Watessing Dog Park in Bloomfield! The off-leash area is huge -- there’s enough space here for even the most energetic fur-ball to leap about to their heart’s content. There’s a separate small dog area, so your pooch can socialize no matter their size, and tired owners are sure to appreciate the ample seating. Bags and water are provided, and as an added bonus, the park has recently been revamped, and there are now doggy obstacle courses in both areas!
