“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!

This dog-friendly neighborhood is home to the Murray Playground Dog Run, part of the larger John F. Murray Playground. The dog park is an off-leash park, but your pal will need to be on a leash if he wants to explore outside the designated area. You’ll need to bring some drinking water and waste bags for cleaning up after your pup. If all that playing makes you hungry, stop by the LIC Bar, just a couple of blocks from the dog park. This Fido-friendly bar lets you enjoy live music and your favorite craft beer out on the patio.

This friendly neighborhood is located about 18 miles from Long Island City. If you’re looking to get in some exercise for you and your pooch, you should check out the Walt Whitman Trail. This is an easy hike that is about 4.25 miles and usually takes about 2 hours to complete. The trails are made of dirt, so no need to worry about your pup’s paws. You will need to watch out for horses and horse droppings, as the trails are also horse-friendly! You’ll need to bring some water and waste bags along. Practice good petiquette, and don’t allow your pup to harass the horses or any other wildlife that may call this trail home.

This park has several dirt-covered trails for you and your leashed pup to explore, and the best part is they lead to the ocean! You’ll find a small shoreline which is a nice spot for your pup to splash in the water after a walk. You can see the lighthouse from here, so bring your camera and prepare for the pawfect day out!
