“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!

Dog Walking in Mt Vernon

Just north of the Bronx, the city of Mount Vernon, New York has the best of both worlds. The southern part of Mount Vernon is a concrete jungle, while the northern part of the city seems more like the suburbs. Mount Vernon is also where many celebrities call home, including rapper DMX, actor Denzel Washington, and author E.B. White. If you’re looking for a town steeped in history, whether through its people or its environment, Mount Vernon is the place to go!

Unfortunately, while there’s plenty for humans to do and see in Mount Vernon, you’re out of luck if you’re a dog, or even a human, who wants to take their pup along for the fun. If you’re looking for a dog park, your best option is to head into New York City or Manhattan. You can also go north to Bronxville if you’re looking for somewhere to dine with your dashing dog. The good news is that Mount Vernon does have a veterinarian clinic, so you’re not too far away if your canine companion is feeling sick. With Mount Vernon being so close to so many different dog-friendly activities, you should definitely give this city a go!
