“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!

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.

I'm great with dogs! I've walked and dog sat for friends and family over the years and volunteered in animal shelters, and want to pass on my experience and love to your dog. I'll make sure your dog has a fun walk, and gets his or her, ahem, 'business' done. I'm sure I'll love your dog and they'll love me (but if they don't, no worries, they're still a good dog)!

Dog Walking in Rockaway Park

Rockaway Park is a beautiful town in Queens, New York that attracts New York natives, visitors, and new residents from around the country. Residents are drawn to the water-town appeal of Rockaway Park. The neighborhoods are unique and each has its own sense of style that makes it easy to find a place you belong. Rockaway Beach is a popular destination with residents and tourists alike. You will find plenty of dogs along the beaches and boardwalks, so be ready to make plenty of friends. There are several animal hospitals in nearby towns just a short drive away, so you won’t have a problem finding a place to take your dog for his check-ups or any emergencies that arise.

There are eight parks where you can take your dog to run and play the day away. East Atlantic Beach is just a short drive away if you want to explore the neighboring beaches with your dog. You will need to keep your dog on a leash while exploring Rockaway Park but he will be so busy enjoying the water that he won’t even notice. You will also need to keep an eye on your dog when the beaches get busy in case he needs a break to calm down.
