“Your friendly neighborhood dog walker”

I started pet sitting when I was in high school. Several of my friends had dogs that I would care for while they were away. To make extra money in college I began to walk and then board a local Shiba Inu; a gig I kept until I started working full time. I have always loved animals, but was unable to have any as a child because of allergies some of my family members have. Now my wife and I currently have two dogs (a beagle and a havanese/poodle mix), three cats, two rabbits, and a conure.

Hello! My name is Suzanne! My background starts when I was a child. We had a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. I learned how to care for her. It went on where I became the reliable kid in the neighborhood taking care of not only dogs but horses, goats cats, turtles, chickens, frogs, fish etc. I loved it. My passion began. As I grew into high school I worked in my first dog kennel for several years always attention to not only impeccable cleanliness but most especially, love and affection to the dogs and cats. I always stayed late on my own time to give special attention. I loved the very hard work and all my furry friends. I then went on to work in three separate dogs facilities throughout my life. Not only working there but also pet sitting and training. My bond with dogs always came naturally to me, as well as to the dogs towards me. They always loved me. I have never been bitten and dogs seem to love me on sight. One such place I worked was a cage free doggie day care facility where I would watch approximately 30 dogs at a time. There I really honed my skills about dog behavior. I could tell just by body language, exactly how they were feeling. I would always immediately act on this as appropriate. I am now a Wag Walker and I love it! Not only do I give a walk but also train on the walk. I take my time attending to each of the individual needs of the pup. I’m not all about the money, again, it’s a love, a passion that’s been life long and enduring. I always talk to the dogs on my walk, developing an even deeper bond with each pooch to further deepen our love for one another. Relaxing them with calm affirmations and also using my tone and actions for appropriate corrections to further better leash manners for the moms and dads of the pooch. My attention to every detail and nuance is pronounced in my extremely thorough report cards. In them you will receive behaviors observed and corrections made, physical well being on the walk and what condition the poop is in as far as consistency, color, which is the first sign to overall health. I give suggestions if needed and ideas on how to make you furry child be the best they can be in all facets. Improving the overall health, care, and behavior are very important and I pay very close attention to everything. I’m not on my cell phone... I watching the dogs every step. I’m a little fanatical about how they are doing at all times. It’s not about the money, that’s just a bonus, it’s genuine love, and again, a lifelong passion.

Dog Boarding in Cranbury

New Beginnings Animal Rescue was established in 2013 by a dedicated group of individuals who wanted to make a difference for animals in need and give them the opportunity for a new beginning! Many of the founders are former staff members and volunteers of Sayreville Pet Adoption Center in nearby Sayreville, NJ, which closed permanently in 2012. 

Seeing a need for a safe haven for the area's homeless animals, they formed New Beginnings. This nonprofit organization is operated entirely by volunteers who compassionately commit their time and energy to providing care and refuge for animals in need. As a no-kill shelter, it is their mission to rescue as many animals as they can, fulfil their physical, emotional, and medical needs, and find them loving forever homes. The shelter is small, but their efforts and volunteer network are growing every year! 

In 2016, they saved the lives of more than 230 dogs and cats. In addition to providing animal shelter and care, the rescue facilitates pet adoptions and is committed to helping potential adopters find the perfect pet to fit their lifestyle. By finding each animal in need the most suitable and loving placement, New Beginnings strives to keep pets in their homes, thus strengthening the local community and the human-animal bond.

Animal Placement Agency of the Windsors (APAW) is another animal shelter serving the homeless dogs of Cranbury, NJ. Located nearby in West Windsor Township, APAW was established in 1969 to provide dogs and puppies with a temporary home until they are united with their forever family. 

The shelter is a nonprofit organization funded entirely by the generosity of private donors. Their efforts are made possible by a team of committed, caring volunteers who provide the dogs with a sense of belonging and emotional support during their chapter at APAW. Every canine that is sheltered by APAW receives complete veterinary care inclusive of routine health examinations, vaccinations, a microchip, deworming (if necessary), and monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. Additionally, dogs over 6 months old are spayed/neutered before adoption. In all that they do, it is APAW's motto to adopt with confidence and place with peace of mind, ensuring that every dog who comes into their care has the best chance at happily ever after.
