Jersey City FYI is pretty excited about this post by way of Summer Dawn Hortillosa at NJ.com!

Jersey City is one of the best cities in the country to own a dog, according to a recent study by a finance website.

Jersey City came in at No. 3 after NerdWallet analyzed 95 of the largest cities in the U.S. for several factors including social opportunities (mostly determined by number of off-leash dog parks per 100,000 residents), affordability (including veterinarian costs) and walkability.

While Jersey City doesn’t have many dog parks, the city earned high scores for its walkability. According to the study, “Chilltown” is the most walkable city for dog owners in America.

NerdWallet noted that Jersey City also has pet boutiques like Jersey City Unleashed, which they describe as a “pet resort and spa where dogs can attend day camp, receive special spa and grooming services and more.”

Other fun places to take your pet include Club Barks and k9dergarten, both located Downtown.

Jersey City is also home to pet adoption centers like the Liberty Humane Society in Liberty State Park.

Jersey City was only topped by Portland, Ore., and Norfolk, Va. Other cities on the list, from fourth to 10th, are Madison, Wis.; Las Vegas; Miami; Washington, D.C., St. Louis, and Long Beach, Calif.
