About Us

Our work is not a late in life "rewarding second career" or a part-time job. Downtown Dog Walk, LLC (DTDW) hires no employees and there is never a revolving door of ever changing, newly hired, ill-prepared, green individuals entering your home. It's Mary Ann or Stephen only.

We're your neighbors, and live in 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, Ferrets, Birds, Rodents, Amphibians. 

DTDW has strong alignments with the best local 'positive reinforcement dog/animal trainers/behaviorists only', personally vetted by us. If a trainer/behaviorist is ever needed, you are covered and we all work together as a team to help.

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 owners to come together and share dog related topics affecting our community and beyond.We fully support our local animal shelter Liberty Humane Society, and are proud members 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 it shows.

Every Pet in our care becomes part of our Family.
