“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.

Dog Walking in Pennington

The borough of Pennington may have only fewer than 3,000 people, but it has many amenities to offer a person with a pup in the family. Folks will find three veterinary clinics in the borough to take care of most of your canine friend's needs. The parks in and around the borough also make for some great exercise outdoors.  

Kunkel Park has great green spaces for a person and a leashed dog. A picnic area greets its visitors for a relaxing outing with a canine companion. The nearby county park, Mercer Meadows, has five trails to explore on a leash. These trails range in length from .7 miles to 4.2 miles. They are either mowed or gravel and aren't difficult for a person and dog. The Lawrence Hopewell Trail actually connects to Rosedale Park, which has a trail that connects back to the main street in Pennington.

In town, a person and pup may want to grab a bagel for breakfast or lunch at Pennington Bagel Experience. The outdoor chairs will welcome you and your canine companion. For a sweet snack anytime, Viva  Gelato on Main Street has five outdoor tables which will make your visit with a four-legged friend comfortable. Viva Gelato sells a variety of sweet bakery items as well. 

For a family with a dog (or three), Pennington makes for a great visit or perhaps even a permanent home!

Dogs living in Pennington are lucky because they get to play at Rosedale Dog Park! This five-acre masterpiece of a dog playground features a large and small dog area for leash-free fun and exercise. The two areas are double-gated for safe entry. The area is an expansive green grass field. Manmade hills lessen the flatness of the landscape. Tunnels and an obstacle course adds to the exercise. A doggie-engineered water fountain makes hydration just a lick away. Human companions will find sanctuary in the gazebo positioned in the middle of the dog park. Picnic tables are scattered throughout for easy supervision of your playing pup.
