“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!

Dog Walking in Valley Stream

Not long after it was first settled, Valley Stream, New York became a thriving agricultural community. The beautiful land was just perfect for farming and raising cattle. Soon, the farmers built up the little community and opened a general store. Mills came next. Then the stagecoaches. Can you imagine riding across the beautiful countryside and seeing New York City being built right before your eyes? 

The majesty of Valley Stream's countryside is still alive today. The only real difference is that now you can see modern sights from your car window instead of waiting for a stagecoach. Or, you can catch a bus from Valley Stream to NYC, so you're never far from the amenities the Big Apple has to offer.

While you are here, you will want to take your whole family -- furry members included, of course! -- over to Valley Stream State Park. Here, you will find multiple trails to walk with your dog, as long as he stays on leash. There are cabin rentals, lakes, and even tent spots as well. There are 97 acres to explore, so come prepared for an adventure! 

If you would like an off-leash option, head to Valley Stream Dog Park. You'll have to register to use the park, but they do offer day passes and visitor passes if you're just passing through. You'll have everything you need here to enjoy the perfect day at the dog park!

Valley Stream is only 25 miles away from the Big Apple, which has so many places to enjoy with Fido that you won't know where to go first! If it's off-leash fun you're after, head to Stuyvesant Square Dog Park.  This is the go-to place for your dog to come and socialize with other dogs. This is a very quiet and well-maintained dog park located in the scenic Stuyvesant Square Park. Right across from the dog park is a trail that allows you to walk your dog off-leash! You will need to bring your own water and doggie bags, as they are not provided. The whole area is heavily shaded with plenty of places for sit and enjoy the day.

The Bronx is another pawtastic place to explore, and it's only about eighteen miles from Valley Stream. Here, you will find Pelham Bay Park Dog Run. Your pup will have lots of wide open space to run and play with other dogs here. If you have a water-loving dog, you will even find that there is plenty of opportunity for your pet to splash around. There are water stations, but during the winter, there is no running water. You will want to have your own doggie bags because these aren't stocked regularly and are often unavailable.
