Because of my passion for dogs I felt an absolute need to create a Doggie Resource Guide for the Millburn-Short Hills and surroundingareas! Having the best resources available for your dog is every dog owner’s top priority. I have built up quite a list of services for all canine lovers! Having a four-legged friend is a huge responsibility and as much as we love them, not everybody does. Why does that matter? Search the MLS and it doesn’t always give you what you’re looking for. Let me do your leg work. In addition, if you have any links or ideas you would like to add to this page, please contact me and I will be happy to include them so everyone can enjoy!
I found a terrific Dog Walker ( Karen Byrnes), in my Chatham NJ home neighborhood. She’s bonded and works with a team of fabulous woman that completely trust.
I use a woman locally but she doesn’t like her number advertised. Just ask me and I can give that to you.

Doggie Day Care and Boarding
I love this place for Bailey. Their location for drop off is right across from Kings in Short Hills. It’s immaculate and the dogs are outside all day playing. They are separated by size and Bailey comes home exhausted!
The Most Luxurious Pet Resort.. “We provide our guests with every imaginable amenity, including specially designed indoor and outdoor play areas and pools, group and one-on-one recreation, and a state-of-the-art grooming salon and spa.”
Off Leash Dog Walking
Great for walking your well-trained pup on miles of trails either on- leash or off. Based on experience, the further you walk into the reservation the more you’ll see dogs off- leash. A good place to enter is across from the Millburn library. There is plentiful parking and trails that go on for miles.!
I’m NOT a big fan of dog parks because I think bad things happen in dog parks. Sometimes people just don’t watch their dogs and I’ve seen some pretty awful things. I especially wouldn’t bring a puppy into a dog park that’s less than 6 months old. South Mountain has some beautiful trails that you can take your pup on for long walk with a view of the city and its dog friendly!
St Hubert’s in Madison. This 8-week course is limited to 8-10 puppies that are between the ages of 8-18 weeks when the course begins.
