“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!

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'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 Far Rockaway

Far Rockaway is a neighborhood in the borough of Queens. This small community is part of what is commonly referred to as The Rockaways, or a series of neighborhoods on the Rockaway Peninsula. Due to its pawsome beach, Far Rockaway was once a thriving vacation destination for those in the surrounding boroughs. Today, the Beach Bungalows Historic District sits as a reminder of the community’s resort heyday.

O’Donahue Park is a green space adjacent to the beach on the east side of the neighborhood. Not only does it have a ball field, splash pad, skate park, and picnic facilities, it also has a large green space that’s perfect for walking your pup. Your canine companion can enjoy some fresh air and sunshine as she trots along the grassy field. Since this is a pup-ular community hang out, she’ll have plenty of opportunity to practice her socialization manners.

The Rockaway Beach Boardwalk runs parallel to the famed Rockaway Beach. Although pups aren’t allowed to swim or frolic on the beach, they are able to walk along the boardwalk and on the sand between October 1 and May 1. 

With beautiful ocean views, a pupperific boardwalk, and two veterinary clinics, it’s no wonder dogs love living in Far Rockaway!

The Freeway Dog Park is a furrific spot for canines that need to let loose. Don’t be fooled by the name, this park in the Hammels neighborhood of Queens is not on the freeway! It’s completely fenced in and safe. Local pups love living close to one of the largest dog parks in the area. There is more than enough room for your dog to scamper around or play a game of chase with his playmates. Sit back and relax on one of the benches as your pal tuckers himself out. Water is available, so make sure he takes a drink break every once in a while.

If your pooch is bursting with energy, then it’s time for a trip to the Bay Park Dog Park. Located in East Rockaway, this off leash run is situated inside Bay Park. Your pup will have plenty of room to get rid of her wiggles. Bring a ball for a game of fetch, or just let her sniff around solo.

Keep in mind, dogs are not allowed to go in the main area of Bay Park.
