“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 Woodside

The Woodside neighborhood is a part of the borough of Queens in New York City. Although the name indicates plenty of wood, the region asn't always that way. The area used to be known for its marshes, muddy flats and bogs. Due to this, the area was scarcely inhabited for many years until the place was drained in the early 1900s. The population grew since then and became the largest Irish community in Queens. 

Nowadays, the neighborhood is mostly known as a concrete jungle, except for a few hidden away spots for the dog-lovers in the area. One area is known as the Doughboy Plaza and Dog Run, an enclosed park that allows dogs to run around safely off-leash. Features include benches, trails, clean-up stations, double-gated fences and water fountains.

You'll be surprised to hear though Woodside has another fenced-in dog run at Sherry Park. Although only made up of asphalt, the area is closed in with high fences and allows dogs to stretch their legs while running freely. There are benches and picnic areas to be found here, and chess games are often played by park goers. Other dog-friendly options include Sprango Park and Crosson Green.

With three different animal hospitals, it's not hard to tell that Woodside loves its resident dogs.

You've heard of Long Island, of course, but have you heard of Long Island City?

The park lies under the bridge and spans north along the coast for 11 acres, and features open fields, ballparks and a long greenway that traverses through the park. Dogs are welcome to the park, but must be picked up after and remain on a leash at all times.
