    I have been walking dogs for over 4 years now. I always make your dogs safety a priority, along with their comfort, emotional and physical well being. I love giving the best walk I can according to your dogs fitness level, I can even take your dog on a jog (weather permitting) or just a leisurely stroll. I always give extra time to settle them back home with refreshed water, treats or meals, practice a few commands, hugs, playtime and babytalk! l look forward to meeting your dog!

    “Discovering New York one dog walk at a time.”

    Born and raised in Texas, moved to NYC Jan 2019. I’m dog (golden retriever) obsessed. I have 5+ years of working with dogs at a doggie day care now I’m full time as a nutrition consultant for a fresh food company here in NYC. I love all dog breeds but I especially have a soft spot for golden retrievers, rotties, Aussies, pugs, huskys, king Charlie’s, sheepadoodles, all mastiffs, and dachshunds. Let me walk your pup. If you want pictures throughout the walk let me know I’ll gladly provide those.

    Hi! My name is Baylee, I’ve been dog walking/pet sitting for about 3 years now! I absolutely love animals, I worked at Petsmart for a year, which was awesome! I treat every dog as if they’re my own, your pup will be in good hands! It doesn’t matter what breed/size your dog is, I’m accepting of all kinds.

    “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.

    ““WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?” I did! :)”

    Hi, my name is Ana I’m 33. I have 3 dogs: a tea cup pomchi and 2 huskies, so I can handle large hyper active dogs just as well as tiny fragile ones that require being extra careful. I do walks, daycare and boardings - if your dog is friendly, they will have a blast playing in a large fully fenced yard. Growing up with dogs since early age I barely spent a day in my life without them by my side, I’m not intimidated neither by breeds nor sizes.I am ready to spend some quality time with your dog :)

    My name is Hank. To say that I love dogs is an understatement. I have a passion for them. I often say that time spent with a dog is the best part of my day. Your dog will not just go for a walk, he or she will be out with a new friend.

Not too far away from here is the Joseph Penniplede Park, with its secluded play area, basketball court, and a paved walking trail that circles its way around the park.
