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

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 3 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.

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!

Dog Walking in East New York

Touted as NYC’s hottest new neighborhood, densely-populated East New York is expanding rapidly. The area was rezoned in 2016, which made this Brooklyn borough an attractive spot for investors. East New York is also a great spot to find affordable housing in the Big Apple, and the number of available residential properties has spiked in the last year.

It’s also the pawfect place to be a dog owner! East New York is home to a short trail that's perfect for a quick walk with a leashed dog. For everything else, you'll just need to travel a short distance into other Brooklyn neighborhoods. Brooklyn and its surrounding areas are home to over 50 vet clinics, so you’ll never have to worry about finding quality vet care. Treat your pooch to a fancy dinner date at Tatiana, an upscale Russian eatery that welcomes dogs at its outdoor tables.

Work off all those calories at one of Brooklyn’s 16 dog parks. Make sure to check out Sirius Dog Run, which is named in honor of a Lab who died during the 9/11 search and rescue operations. It's a small park, but your pooch is sure to have a howlin' good time!

East New York is a furrific place for dogs and their owners!
