“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.

“I walk the walk.”

Look no further. I’m the person you want walking your dog because your dog is my #1 priority. I’m patient, kind, reliable, and energetic and will always give 110% when walking/interacting with your dog. No dog is too small/large for me to walk. Whether a nice leisurely stroll or walk/run with your dog, I do what is necessary to make sure your dog’s walk is fun and mentally stimulating. So, the next time your dog needs to be walked, please schedule their walk with me. Your dog will thank you.

I go the extra mile for the dogs in my care. I have over 12 years experience fostering dogs with special medical needs so giving medications or IV fluids is not an issue. I only feed holistic food and treats and purchase toys made in the USA. I will treat your pets like they were my own. I love to exercise and run so if your dog is active, I am the sitter for you. My own pets are very friendly to other dogs I can separate your dogs from my own. My cats and caged pets are kept away from the dogs so interaction is not an issue if your dog does not like them. I have had dogs and cats for over 40 years and have excellent references from adopters and current clients.

Dog mom and lover enjoys giving a dog a good walk and some play time.

I understand how important it is to make sure your pet is taken care of and having some fun when you can't be there. I have experience with timid dogs who are afraid of everything, dogs who do not like other dogs, high energy dogs, elderly dogs, and dogs who require daily medications or just special care. I want your dog to feel as comfortable as if you were there. I love giving cuddles, pets and don't mind kisses.

Dog Boarding in Trenton

Planning on being in Trenton, New Jersey? Rest assured, this city is welcoming of your four-legged, furry friend. For any dedicated pet owner, it’s always a good idea to have an understanding of the dog culture in the area that surrounds you. The good news is that Trenton is a paws-itively fun and friendly location for you and yours. This grrr-eat attitude can best be seen in the local shelters and dog-friendly activities happening around town. The welcoming atmosphere is definitely alive and well. 

The care and commitment to animals can undoubtedly be found in the city's most dedicated shelter. Trenton Animal Shelter works diligently to place dogs and cats in their fur-ever homes. Not only is the shelter a safe haven for strays and abandoned pooches, but the staff works diligently via social media to help find lost dogs, share “happy tails” of adoption, and provide access to need-to-know animal care. It’s that little extra effort that goes a long way in placing hundreds of animals in happy homes every single year. 

Based on the shelter’s spay and neuter policy, as well as their proof of veterinarian access and interviewing process, it is apparent that they are committed to making sure every pup goes to the very best home. They regularly schedule a meet and greets at PetSmart and provide weekend appointments at the shelter as needed. Plus, they have a pretty adorable adoptable list that they keep as current as possible. Big or small, they have them all! Take a gander. You never know—you may find another pair of paws to add to your family.
