“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 Wood-Ridge

Wood Ridge, a small town in New Jersey, is something of a hidden treasure for locals. While less than twenty miles away from New York City, there’s just enough distance to be free of the excessive traffic and busy sidewalks. It’s easy to see why tourists and locals alike would enjoy this town, especially if they’re dog owners; Wood Ridge and the surrounding areas are filled to the brim with dog-friendly activities and restaurants for you and Fido to explore. 

If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of New York, stay in Wood Ridge for the evening and stop in at Bachi 197. Take a seat at one of their three outdoor tables, and scour the menu for your new favorite treat. Bachi 197 is unique in the sense that it’s a fusion of Asian and Mexican cuisine, so you’re sure to have plenty of options to try something new. If you want something more classic like a slider, those are available as well. Be sure to bring your trusty collapsible water bowl, and some fresh drinking water for your woofer to wet their whistle. Bring some treats as well, so puppy don’t miss out!

The first stop on your doggy to-do list takes you to the site of the World Trade Center.

Sirius Dog Run is named after one such brave dog, who lost his life in the wake of the September Eleventh attack. What better way to honor such a good boy than to let your dog race and roam free in this dog run? The run is paved, and your dog will make great friends.

Scoot your pooch on over to Upper East Side in New York City, and mosey on over to Carl Schurz Dog Park, a park with two runs for large breeds and small breeds alike. Let your precious pup meet some great new friends, and when your dog is ready to relax, take them for a casual stroll along the promenade along the East River. Bring plenty of drinking water for both yourself and your canine companion, as well as some of your toothy tot’s favorite toys. This park is the perfect place for well-socialized dogs, so you can rest easy.

Inwood Hill Park is a locale you have to stop at while in the Inwood neighborhood. Contained within it is the aptly named Inwood Hill Park Trail, a two-mile hike that should be relatively easy for well-exercised pups. It still offers plenty of challenge to get your heart pumping, especially as you and your proud pup prance up the moderate inclines throughout the trail. The scenery is nothing to sneeze at either, considering you’ll be walking within the only natural park on Manhattan Island. Bring some nice, cool drinking water for you and your pup, and work those muscles!

After all is said and done, you can’t go wrong settling down for a nice meal with your best barking bud. Along Third Avenue in New York City, you’ll find your way to the Barking Dog Luncheonette, an appropriately named restaurant well-known for its dog-loving wait staff. Your dog will be provided with a fresh bowl of drinking water as well as a tasty treat while you peruse the menu. The restaurant is touted as having an especially delicious brunch menu, but you can’t go wrong any time. Your dog will surely enjoy the crowds of people eager to give them head pats, but no flash furtography, please.
