“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.

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 Forest Hills

Taking up only 2.6 square miles, one would think the Forest Hills neighborhood in the borough of Queens is only known for its forests and hills. This isn't the case though, as the neighborhood has a lot of ties to pop culture. It is the home of Spider-man in the comics, was in a scene from Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train, and was once home to a U.S. Open tennis tournament. 

While these facts are fun and make for excellent trivia questions, dog owners will love the fact that the neighborhood has a public dog park even more. The park is called Underbridge Dog Run, and yes, it is under a bridge. It features two separate areas, a larger one and smaller one for differently sized dogs. Both sections come coplete with double gated fences for extra safety, and clean-up stations, but be sure to bring your own water.

The city has plenty of other dog-friendly options, like Yellowstone Park, the Barrier Playground, and the Real Good Park, for those extra good boys. Also, with 3 different animal hospitals, every dog-lover can be sure that their pup will be healthy and happy in Forest Hills.
