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 Pearl River

Pearl River, New York has an interesting name, but the legend behind the name is infinitely more intriguing. A resident of Pearl River named Dr. Ves Bogert had a fascination with the muddy creek located near the settlement. In fact, Muddy Creek was its official name until the 1870s. Bogert was digging around in the creek, exploring, when he started picking up mussels. The story goes that he was going to make a stew from them, but when he started to clean them, he found several tiny pearls.

This story is just one of many local legends surrounding the town's origin. One thing's for sure, though: Pearl River loves its pets! Take Fido to 1 Happy Camper Way, a park that welcomes leashed dogs with open arms. Make it an adventure with your pup as you search for your own mussels. Of course, you could just spend the day walking through the trails and enjoying the magic of the area. There are many amenities, like a playground, bathhouse, and even picnic sites. Your dog can enjoy the whole area with you as long as he's on-leash. 

While you're here, you'd be barking mad miss out on Jane Cafe. Breakfast is their specialty. Feast on omelettes and french toast until your belly is full and happy. Or, come for dinner and chow down on empanadas!

Pearl River is pawfect for pets -- and their parents!

Pearl River is known for its history, so it's no surprise that Louie's on the Avenue is housed in a nineteenth-century home. The American menu has something for everyone. For a casual dinner, you could try the garlic glazed shrimp. If you want to dress your dinner up, then the filet mignon is the way to go. This restaurant has several dog-friendly tables and will greet your pet with a bowl of water. All they ask is that your pup is well-behaved -- no barking, please! You must also keep your pup on a leash or in your lap.

Mahwah may sound like a funny name, but it is the place to go to get pizza. You and your dog can come grab a pizza with just about anything on it. Not in the mood for a slice? They also have ghanoush, calzones, burgers, and heroes. The pasta is oven baked as well. They have a huge selection available for dine-in or carry-out. You and Fido can enjoy a meal at one of the pet-friendly outdoor tables. Keep in mind that your pup will need to be on a leash here, but he won't mind, since you'll both leave with full bellies and wagging tails! Mawhaw is just a 12-mile drive from Pearl River.

Rampo Valley County Park is a public park located in Mahwah. You and your pooch are sure to make un-fur-gettable memories here, which makes the quick, 12-mile drive well worth it. There are multiple trails, most of which require your dog to be on a leash. The orange trail is a leash-optional trail; just remember that it can be quite difficult to catch your dog if he is a runner. There are no water fountains, so please bring drinking water for both you and your dog. There are trash cans along the way that provide doggie waste bags just in case you forget your own.

If your pooch is feeling the cabin fever and needs to get out and enjoy some off-leash playtime, then you should take an eight-mile trip on over to Ridgewood Bark Park. There are two separate areas for your dogs to play in, as well as a double-gated fence. You will need to bring your own water in the winter months, but in the summer, the water is turned on. This is an off-leash park where your pooch can run, romp, and find some new canine companions! Children under 13 are not allowed inside the dog park for safety reasons.
