“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.

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 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 Jamaica

The Jamaica neighborhood inside of the Queens borough of New York City provides plenty of dog runs and dog parks where pooches can be let off the leash to run and play. The network of parks include Little Bay Dog Run, Forest Park Dog Run, and RockawayFreeway Dog Park.

Jamaica Bay Park is just one of many city parks in the Jamaica, NY area. Its 18,000-plus acres provides a wetland estuary, as well as miles of walkways and paths. Visitors, and their pets, are welcome but pets must be kept on leashes at all times. 

The Garden Inn & Suites allows pets in their rooms. However, there are several restrictions. Guests are limited to two pets, per rom, and each pet must be 30 pounds or less. An extra fee of $50 per pet is levied for every three nights at the motel. Pets are allowed only in rooms on the first and second floors. Make sure you check with the motel for any current pet policies.

Jamaica, NY has much to offer both humans and pets. Be sure to bring your pet with you on your next visit.

Nearby, the St. Albans neighborhood is home to the Roy Wilkins Park, a lovely park that features a cricket field, handball courts, baseball fields, a running track and even has WIFI! Roy Wilkins Park has some history for New York since it was named after civil rights leader Roy Wilkins who was also a former NAACP president and is now a cultural landmark in Jamaica. You can take Fido on a nice run on the track, or if you’re up for the challenge, run the entire park which is right over 6 miles. Sometimes the park can get busy since it has a venue for concerts and hosts carnivals, so be sure to check the calendar if your pup is nervous around crowds.

Captain Tilly Park may seem small, but your dog will love going for a walk or jog in this neighborhood park that is right by the Jamaica neighborhood. The park doesn’t offer many amenities, only a pond and a playground, but your dog will be happy with the quietness the park offers. The park has a lot of trees to help shade the area, and your dog can walk around in the pond while you relax. There is also a nice walking path that circles the lake that your dog would love to explore. The park does not have any benches, so if you and Fido want a break, you will have to sit on the grass.

This neighborhood near Jamaica offers Baisley Pond Park, a beautiful park to explore with your dog. The best part about Baisley Pond Park is it has two off-leash areas for you dog to run around in. The first area is between 119th and 123rd Ave and the second is Lakeview Lane between Foch Boulevard and Lakeview Lane East. The park also offers WIFI, a running track, and bicycling areas for you two to explore. In the middle of the park is a huge pond with a lot of fisherman who visit it, so make sure you dog doesn’t attempt swimming for his own safety.

The Railroad Park in the neighborhood of Rochdale Village is a lovely little park to let your dog explore one sunny afternoon. The park has WIFI, which is great for the Instagram dog parent, plus it has dense trees which helps keep it cool and shaded. The park does not have any benches or tables, so if you wanted to relax while your dog explores, then you need to bring your own chair or blanket. There also isn’t any water available for your dog, so be sure to pack an extra bottle if you’re out and about. If the park isn’t your style, you and your dog can still enjoy a nice walk along 129th avenue and enjoy the beautiful homes that surround you.
