“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.

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 Walking in Hillsborough Township

Hillsborough, New Jersey was rated #16 on Money Magazine's 2015 list of best cities to live in America. The reason why is obvious -- it's a close-knit community with plenty of green spaces where residents can rest and relax. There are lots of places for you to walk your dog, enjoy a picnic, and just take in the beauty of the natural scenery. Hillsborough is also in close proximity to some furrific state parks and nature preserves where you and your pooch can explore the day away! You'll even find a few vets in town to keep your pup happy and healthy.

The first place to visit is Sourland Mountain Trails in the Sourland Mountain Preserve. This mountainside trail system encompasses a pond with several trails that vary in distance and difficulty. You have to stay on the trails and you do need a leash, but it is a great way to see the beauty of the mountains with your pup. 

If you get hungry, you should stop by Cafe Graziella. It may look like just another store at the strip mall, but this is an amazing little spot with some of the best food in town. They're also dog-friendly, so your pup can join you for a bite! Just don't forget to bring a leash and water bowl.

Otto's Farm Trails is a series of trails that are open to the public. It was once private land that was donated. Along the trails, there are many small streams and wooded areas that Fido will love exploring. It is a barktastic place to get some exercise and a have a little adventure. You'll need to keep your dog leashed at all times on the trails, but she probably won't mind too much. You'll also need to clean up after your dog, so make sure to bring plenty of waste bags. A water bottle is a must, too, since there's no drinking water available along the way.

You should definitely try the wings because they fall right off the bone! With so much to try, you may want to stop in a couple of times while you are in Hillsborough. Don't forget to bring a water dish for Fido!
