“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!

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 Richmond Hill

Urban, diverse and thriving, Richmond Hill, New York City has all the amenities of the big city with a quiet, residential atmosphere. Peaceful though it may be, the area is as vibrant as it is friendly. The neighborhood’s melting pot boasts many ethnic restaurants, food shops and clothing stores, with many cultural festivals taking place throughout the year. It’s home to a furrific dog park, and there are two vets nearby to take care of your buddy, with 24-hour care provided just a short distance away in Forrest Hill.

Anyone who’s traveled in New York with a dog will tell you that the main problem with taking your pooch around the city is transportation. In a city where few drive, the subways and buses will only take dogs in carriers -- leading to a cottage industry that makes carriers for dogs that weigh up to fifty pounds! If your canine companion can’t be caged, you might need to rely on cabs to get a bit of variety in your activities. Some taxis won’t take pets, but many do, so this might be an option if you want to take your pup to see the sights in and around Richmond Hill!

North Richmond Hill is home to the green and spacious Forrest Park. The park contains two pawesome off leash dog areas -- one in the park proper, and another at the Forrest Park Overlook. The Forrest Park Dog Run, by the Woodhaven side of the park, is a pup’s paradise, with a doggie obstacle course and plenty of toys. There’s a separate area for large and small dogs, and there are water bowls available, but owners have to bring their own H2O. Overlook Park is smaller and a mixed area for large and small dogs, but no less charming, and you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city while your pooch tires themselves out!

While Phil Rizzuto Park is much smaller than Forrest Park, and has no dedicated off-leash dog area, it does have the advantage of being in walking distance from Richmond Hill. There’s still plenty for you and your pooch to see and do, though. While the main draw of the park for locals is its sports facilities, dogs are allowed on the fields as long as no one is playing, and the perimeter of the park is great for leashed walking! There are plenty of seats for owners, and trees provide shade for dogs in the summer. There are trash cans provided, but be sure to bring your own water and poo bags!

Bordered to the south by Forest Park, Forest Hills is a true haven for dog owners. Located three miles from Richmond Hill, the area is home to the mutts-visit Underbridge Dog Run. Large and spacious, with separate areas for large and small dogs and plenty of toys, your pooch is certain to get a real workout! The Underbridge Dog Run also has a bridge over to the Flushing Meadows Corona Park, one of the largest parks in the city. Leashed dogs are welcome on many of the scenic, shaded pathways, and all along the Meadow Lake Trail, a tranquil walk that boasts lovely lakeside views.

If you can make the four miles to Fresh Meadows, it would be a huge faux-paws not to give the Cunningham Park Dog Run a visit. This excellent dog park has two doggie drinking fountains and two large runs -- one for large dogs and one for small dogs -- so your pooch can socialize no matter their size! While you’re in the area, you may want to take a leashed stroll through Cunningham Park to get to the excellent Greek Family Eats on the other side of the park. Technically located in nearby Hollis Hills, this restaurant welcomes dogs in their outdoor seating area. On a summer day, they’ll even provide water!

Sunnyside is located six miles away from Richmond Hill, but the area’s two furrific dog parks makes it well worth the trip! The Lou Lodatti Dog Park at the corner of 43rd Street and Skillman Avenue has separate areas for large and small dogs, plenty of seating, and bathrooms for owners located near the entrance. The Sherry Park Dog Run on Queens Boulevard has much more room for your pooch to play in, but it's a mixed area, so be mindful of your pup’s temperament. Keep in mind as well that the water is shut off in the winter -- you may need to bring your own bottle!
