Having always been an animal lover, I have done a great deal of dog-cat-horse-sitting during my life. Currently, I work as a freelance equine photographer and board cats in my home. I thought it was a fabulous idea to pick up an extra job that involves a great deal of physical activity in combination with the pure joy of getting to care for and play with your dog/s. I am used to handling dogs of different breeds, temperaments and ages, and think it is such a privilege to spend time with them and explore their individual needs and preferences. I am perceptive, knowledgeable, reliable and resourceful, with an impeccable work ethic and commitment to care for your beloved dog/s according to your specific wishes and needs.

“Dog walking is no job - it's a passion!”

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 3 years now, which I absolutely love! I have had an endearing love for dogs since 2001 when my parents finally gave into the many pleas of my two younger brothers and I to get us a dog. We were introduced to Tiki, a magnificent Black Labrador, who became the sister we never had.
