Frequently Asked Questions
What is your philosophy?
Furever Friends is a canine club. We are structured differently from dog walking companies. We are about dog health and happiness over profits. We believe every dog is an individual, just as humans are individuals. Fulfilling a dog’s needs in an urban environment like Hoboken is delicate, constant work. We don’t believe in having a cookie cutter approach to our clients. We do not engage in large pack walks and only walk our clients with 1-2 other dogs. We believe in long walks. Lots of exercise, mental stimulation, and socialization via walking buddies are essential. These are the keys to your dog to being the best version of themselves. A tired dog is a happy & balanced dog!
What are the requirements for becoming a member?
Our club accepts dog members who are at least 5 months old and have all of their immunizations. Furever Friends has a firm minimum of 4 walks per week. We do not accept dogs who attend daycare due to behavior reasons. We require 2 working copies of your keys, a snug fitting harness/collar for your dog and a standard 4 foot leash. We currently only service Hoboken, NJ.
Would you take my dog to the dog park?
In short: no. We are protective of the well being of our club members. Dog parks more often than not transmit diseases, encourage unbalanced energy/undesirable behaviors and are where most dog bites/fights occur. The same can be said for most daycares. We provide long structured walks that tire your dog out in a manner that is conducive to their mental & physical health.
Who will walk my dog?
Furever Friends spends a lot of time (and money) finding our talent. Being a dog lover alone doesn’t qualify someone to be a dog caretaker. We look for passionate individuals with a strong mind. We look not only for dedication to animals but to succeed & put 110% in everything they do. Every team member is background checked & heavily trained/vetted.
How long have you been in business?
We were founded in 2019. Our Clubmaster + Founder Will has been walking dogs in Hoboken for 11 years since 2010. After taking a brief hiatus to work on his dog photography projects in NYC he realized he was finally ready to put his knowledge & experience to use. And Furever Friends was born.
What is your cancellation policy?
We don’t charge cancellation fees! You can cancel anytime (even same day) without any charge. We do ask that as a courtesy you cancel (by phone, text, or email) at least 3 hours before your scheduled appointment. The only exception is if a team member arrives at your residence for a scheduled appointment to find your dog is not home or does not need their walk. A full service charge applies in this instance.
