Hi, I'm Jackie and I've been a dog lover since birth...seriously, recently unearthed home movies show my parents teaching me to say "dog sit" at 9-months-old. In addition to Wag, I own my own dog training business. I own three dogs: an American Pit Bull Terrier named Kid, a poodle/terrier mix named Charlie and a working-line German Shepherd named Grady. I look forward to meeting your pets and giving them the same care and love I give to my own dogs on walks.

Dog Walking in Wharton

The borough of Wharton makes a person with a pup right at home. This small community does not have a veterinarian with a shop in town. However, Wharton is close to everything, including veterinary care. The neighboring communities like Mine Hill and Rockaway have many veterinary clinics for all your dog's health care needs.  

Wharton offers eight municipal parks, most of which have green spaces and playgrounds. The local ordinance prohibits dogs in the parks, except for the parking lot areas unless posted otherwise. It is wise to check with the borough before venturing out to a new park.  When permitted in the park areas, dogs must be on no less than an 8-foot leash.  

The Hugh Force Canal Park is open to hikers with a furry leashed companion. This is a looped trail and is part of the Morris Canal Trail project. The trail is a 2-mile looped hike on a path mixed with gravel/rock, grass, and dirt. It skirts along the historic Morris Canal and along the Rockaway River. This is a popular place for locals to get out and stretch. The trail includes markers detailing the history of the Morris Canal and the railways built to take advantage of it for transportation of goods. The stone retaining wall above the path is part of the railway structures seen on the hike.  

In town, the Canal House on Kossuth is a fitting place to stop for a lunch or dinner with a four-legged companion. This eatery serves up sandwiches, burgers, and some fancier entrees for dinner. Covered outdoor patio tables await you and your furry friend. The Canal House is open seven days a week.

Morristown is located eighteen miles south of Wharton. Lewis Morris Dog Park has two separately fenced areas for your pup's play and exercise sans leash.

This dog park is usable even after a soaking rain -- there's no mud here to contend with. The surface makes it easy to spot and clean up after pups, too. The dog park features a separately fenced section reserved for smaller dogs. No water is on-site, but it's not too far away in the main park. The dog park is situated in the woods. Tired pet parents appreciate the many shaded benches.
