If I could, I'd have my dogs with me 24/7.  If you're the same way, then you'll probably be happy to know that a city in New Jersey has been named one of the 10 most dog-friendly cities in the United States.

The list, which was posted on TravelandLeisure.com, based it's rankings.on the "number of dog parks, dog walkers, and dog-friendly restaurants, hotels, and beaches" in each city.

The Top 10 includes only three cities east of the Mississippi and one of those is Jersey City.  The article specifically mentioned 3 dog-friendly establishments in Jersey City --- Hidden Grounds Coffee, The Cliff, and The Latham House.

By the way, if you're looking for a weekend getaway with your pup, consider Arlington, VA.  That city, located just outside of Washington, DC, also made the Top 10 and I can attest that it, and it's neighboring city of Alexandria, are super dog-friendly!
