“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.

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!

Hi my name is Jillian and I am a Certified Veterinary Assistant. I have experience working in ASPCA's Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital. After working there I went on to walk dogs, I found I enjoyed it much more because I was able to bond more with the dogs and it brought me so much joy to learn their unique personalities. I treat your babies like my babies. I respect all your wishes for your dog and I respect what your dog likes and doesn't like. I bring a lot of compassion, joy, and lots of positive energy to your doggy. I assure you that you and your doggy will be happy with me.

Dog Walking in Tappan

Tappan is a hamlet 12 miles north of New York City in Orangetown, New York that got its name from the Indian word for "cold water." While the water around Tappan may be cold, it is beautiful to look at, and ideal for long walks along the water with your best four-legged friend beside you. Tappan has a population of fewer than 7,000 people, but it has an incredibly rich history that includes George Washington having had his headquarters there in 1780. Much of the town is dedicated to showcasing its historical landmarks, and while it maintains its authenticity, it also manages to keep up with the times, including being a great place to live if you're a dog owner!

The '76 House in Tappan dates back hundreds of years to the Revolutionary War and is the oldest tavern in New York. Not only is The '76 House historically important, but it also serves excellent food and drinks, and it has outdoor seating that is dog-friendly. You can enjoy dishes like their Yankee pot roast or roasted Amish chicken in the same restaurant George Washington once sat while your dog waits eagerly at your side for a scrap or two. Tappan is a dog-friendly place that you'll want to add to your must-visit list right away!
