“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 Monroe Township

Monroe Township is a growing township in New Jersey that’s considered an outlying suburb of the New York City metropolitan area. You can get to the heart of the city in about an hour’s drive, where you’ll find virtually endless restaurants, hotels, and other attractions that welcome pups. Monroe Township isn’t without dog-friendly spots, though. The township has two animal hospitals and a mobile vet that services the area, plus a couple of fun things for the outdoor-loving dog and his owner.

The Monroe Township Bikeway stretches over six miles and runs from Glassboro to Williamstown, cutting through parts of Monroe Township. The paved trail brings you through cozy neighborhoods, shady forests, and by some sporting fields where you can catch the latest games. On the west end of Monroe Township is also the Thompson Park Dog Park, an off-leash park with separate areas for large and small dogs to run around and meet some new friends.

Drive about 11 miles east to Marlboro, where you’ll find the Marlboro Dog Park, a park with beautiful grass and a water fountain for dogs. Monroe Township and its surrounding areas are the pawfect playground for you and your adventure-seeking dog to explore.
