“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!

Ello! My name is Ashley, and I am a nature loving artist whose only desire in life is to love and be loved. I am passionate about creating things and exploring the wonders of life, as well as trying to change the world one smile at a time. I have grown up around many different animals and currently have a ferret who is more like my daughter than my pet. When I can I take her everywhere with me and do all that I can to make sure she has the best life that she can possibly have. It is my goal to open up a cuddle business where I offer love and support, reiki, therapy, and art lessons to those that would like to become the best versions of themselves that they can be. I have a background in psychology that I use everyday to understand all the living beings around me to adapt to the best possible way to interact with them as well as understand what makes them tick as a being.

Dog Walking in The Bronx

Located where Grand Concourse and East 156th Street meet, Franz Sigel Park is a quaint park that has an abundance of space for your pooch to run about. There is a fenced-in area where dogs can run leash-free, but dogs must be put back on their leashes after leaving the fenced-in area. A gazebo and a collection of trees provide plenty of shade for the seating areas. Franz Sigel Park is free to enter and is open during daylight hours.

Grab your dog’s favorite toy, or leave the toy at home, it’s your choice because Van Courtland Park is more than just fenced-in grass! Van Courtland Park has a doggie playground and two separate sections for large and small dogs so that every pup can play fearlessly. Dogs are welcome to run leash-free while enjoying the park, but they should be leashed when leaving the park.

If space it was you desire, Pelham Bay Park will grant you your wish. Pelham Bay Park is Bronx’s largest city park – expanding over 2,700 acres! Admission is free, but this park is not a leash-free zone. All dogs must be strictly under a short leash and under their owners’ control while in the park. Please help keep the park clean by picking up after your pet!

The Willamsbridge Oval is a dog friendly park that is great to take your pup to for a jog or walk. The park has a track inside of it which you can run your dog on as long as he is leashed. The park is very popular with families and children, and they even hold events like movie nights, so be sure to check out what’s happening before bringing your pup. If you want your dog to be off-leash, then take them to the dog run that is located inside of Willamsbridge Oval. The dog run is smaller than the park, but still gives plenty of space for off-leash fun.
