“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 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.

This Somerset neighborhood is right next to New Brunswick, and is home to a huge park that your pooch will love exploring. Hawthorne Park is a passive park, meaning that while it may not have many facilities, it has plenty of nature. From a variety of trees and shrubs to a scenic stream that runs through the park, this is a great spot to experience more of the area's natural beauty. If your pup still needs more exercise, Consovoy Park is right next to Hawthorne Park, and is home to a baseball field, a playground, picnic benches and a paved path.
