“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.

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.

Hello, my name is Gideon. I had two dogs when I was a boy, and I have always loved them. As an adult, I personally rescued a 6-month old Pit Bull Terrier who had been abandoned in the street, and she was the best dog ever! Training and raising her taught me a lot about how dogs behave, and how to walk them responsibly. Thank you for reading my bio, I look forward to meeting and walking your dogs!

Ello! My name is Ashley, and I am a nature loving artist whose only desire in life is to love and be loved. I am passionate about creating things and exploring the wonders of life, as well as trying to change the world one smile at a time. I have grown up around many different animals and currently have a ferret who is more like my daughter than my pet. When I can I take her everywhere with me and do all that I can to make sure she has the best life that she can possibly have. It is my goal to open up a cuddle business where I offer love and support, reiki, therapy, and art lessons to those that would like to become the best versions of themselves that they can be. I have a background in psychology that I use everyday to understand all the living beings around me to adapt to the best possible way to interact with them as well as understand what makes them tick as a being.

Dog Walking in Manhattan

Manhattan is a city within a city, and this city loves dogs. From the Upper East Side to the Lower West, there are dozens of animal hospitals and vet clinics. If you add in the docs who do house calls, a Manhattan dog is set for life. With prime Manhattan eateries like the Barking Dog with a “dog bar” water fountain out front, what a wonderful life it is, too.


Inwood Hill Park is the oldest park in Manhattan, and comes complete with a fenced in dog run. It preserves some of the natural forest and salt marsh that used to make up Manhattan. This park is a high traffic destination, with many people who come to the park appreciate the cityscape even more once they’ve seen what it’s made from.


There’s too much to see in Manhattan to discover it all yourself. Take a shortcut to local status with Z-Travel and Leisure Tours. Just call to say you’re bringing your dog and sign up for neighborhood tours, food and wine tours, themed tours, water tours, and many more!


Boat Basin Cafe is another Manhattan dining experience you can’t miss. Great food and a fantastic view, coupled with dog-friendly seating is a win, win, win! Day or night, Manhattan dogs have options for fun, health, and comfort.
