“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.

Hi! My name is Karen. I am a huge dog lover, I've never met a dog I didn't love, and make instant friends with the pups I meet. I have had dogs my whole life, including now. I have a rat terrier as well as a super hyper chi-weenie that I rescued from running in traffic. While my dogs are small, I also foster dogs and most of the ones that come to me while awaiting a forever home are pit bulls or other misunderstood pooches. I love them all. I know how much you love your dog, and I will treat them like I would my own. I cant wait to meet your pup!

““WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?” I did! :)”

Hi, my name is Anastasia! 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 :)

“Must hug all the dogs!”

I’ve been dog walking for several years now with over 1300 walks. I have walked pups as small as a rat terrier to as giant as a mastiff. I walk dogs with anxiety and dogs that are aggressive towards humans & other dogs. I have a few pups that I administer medication to. I take what I do very seriously and treat each dog as if they were my own. I’ve never had any incidents (knock on wood)! I have 3 dogs of my own, a Shia Inu mix and the love of my life, a sweet pitbull and a goofy/giant Golden.

Dog Walking in Middlesex

The small borough of Middlesex is situated to make the life of a person with a furry family member a little healthier and more fun. The borough has one veterinary clinic in town to take care of both routine and more complex veterinary needs. The surrounding larger townships have dozens of options for veterinary care.  

Middlesex has several small parks that will give a person with a leashed dog a bit of quality time outdoors. Haverstick Park has some open fields for a stroll and fresh air. Simchock Park has another stretch of greenery for walking and stretching those paws. Steve Fellin Field has large, grassy outfields that can be used for some walking on-leash, as long as you aren't visiting during a game.

For longer and more forested hiking trails, head to nearby Washington Rock State Park. This scenic and historic park is just a 3.5-mile drive from Middlesex. The walking trails will give you and your leashed dog a chance to scale the same path that George Washington took in the Revolutionary War. The overlook in the park is where Washington kept an eye out for advancing British troops. 

Back in town, food can be found at Ocean Garden Chinese Restaurant. Chow down on some chow mein at the dog-friendly outdoor table here. Then, top off the day with a sweet treat from Rita's Italian Ice!

Smaller dogs will find their own kind in a safe and separately fenced spot.

The human companions will find some shaded benches from which to supervise their pups, as well as waste stations stocked with bags. Trees line the dog park's perimeter, and the shade they provide is mutts-appreciated in the warmer months. For more adventure, a leashed walk on the trail adds to the outdoor experience.
