Hello! My name is Michele, and I am a high school biology teacher. I love animals! I previously had a dog of my own, but cannot own another one right now. That's why I would love to take your pup for walks around the neighborhood or at a nearby park. I loved taking my former dog for walks on local hiking trails and to the dog park for playtime. Can't wait for an enjoyable walk with your dog!

“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 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.

“A dog having fun means I did my job well”

Dog mom and lover enjoys giving a dog a good walk and some play time. I know how bored pups get waiting for their owners to come home so I will always make sure they have a great time when I'm with them. I always check their water bowls before I leave and alert the pet parent if anything out of the ordinary happened. My specialty is giving your pet the love and attention it wants when you are away.

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.

“Responsible | Trustworthy | Positive”

I am a recent law school graduate eager to spend time outside walking dogs to take breaks from work. My family has owned several dogs over my life, but I unfortunately had to leave them behind when I moved to this area from Kansas for school. Because I miss the dogs so much and need every excuse to take breaks, I am ready to walk or dog-sit your dog regularly or on a last-minute basis.

Dog Walking in Lawrence Township

Although Lawrence Township is officially a part of the New York Metropolitan Area, it is so quiet, peaceful and incredibly beautiful here. With an endless array of parks and trails to explore, this is a destination that both you and your dog will no doubt fall in love with.

The largest developed park in Lawrence Township is the 107 acre Central Park. As you can imagine, there are quite a few facilities here, including playgrounds, sports courts and several picnic tables. The park also provides access to the Johnson Trolley Line South, a trail that runs for just under a mile and connects you to a few other nearby parks.

Another scenic trail worth checking out is at the Colonial Lake Park, which is home to a 25 acre man-made lake. The trail here, which is just under a mile long, loops its way around the shoreline of the lake, providing waterfront views all the way around.

If your pooch would prefer an off-lead run, there is a fenced-off section at the 62 acre Village Park for pooches to play off the lead. The park is also home to sports facilities and playgrounds, as well as a 1.4 mile section of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail, which connects Lawrence Township with Hopewell Township.

With so many pawtastic walks to be had, you will never run out of new areas for your pooch to explore in Lawrence Township.
