Winner of Zootoo Pet Lover's Choice Award
Van Vorst Park
The best completely family owned & operated dog walk and pet care service you will find in Downtown Jersey City.
Pet care has been our profession and passion for over 20 years, and we have been caring for our community pets since 2006. Our work is not a late in life 'rewarding second career' or a part-time job. Downtown Dog Walk hires no employees and there is no revolving door of different walkers entering your home. It's Mary Ann or Stephen only. We're your neighbors, and live in Downtown Jersey City with you and the community we serve.
Depending on your dog's needs, we prefer to create buddy walks, rather than pack walks. We work hard at matching up your dog with another based on age, temperament, play style and size. Most dogs really enjoy having a canine friend. They know exactly where their best buddy lives and miss them if they take a day off. This all serves to enrich their lives. While we have extensive Puppy and Dog experience; we also have wide-ranging experience caring for all critters: Kittens/Cats and Ferrets.
Our love of animals goes beyond our rewarding profession. We feel a deep commitment to our local animal community. Mary Ann created and moderates the community message board, DOGJC on Facebook --
a welcoming online space for Jersey City-dog lovers to come together and share dog-related topics. We fully support our local shelter Liberty Humane Society, and we are a proud member of The Pet Professional Guild.
They say if you do what you love you'll be happy. We have been doing what we love for a very long time. And, we look forward to sharing our love with you and your furry best friend(s). Please don't hesitate to contact us and join our family.
