Hello! My name is Michele, and I am a high school biology teacher. I love animals! I previously had a dog of my own, but cannot own another one right now. That's why I would love to take your pup for walks around the neighborhood or at a nearby park. I loved taking my former dog for walks on local hiking trails and to the dog park for playtime. Can't wait for an enjoyable walk with your dog!

“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.

Dog Walking in Princeton

Princeton, New Jersey, is a medium sized college town with a population of approximately 28,000 people and home to the world famous Princeton University. Over half of the New Jersey households own at least one pet, and Princeton is a great place for animals to be as there are plenty of amenities for cats, dogs, and other pets.

Princeton has, for instance, its very own off-leash dog park, the Rocky Top Private Dog Park. This private dog park offers 2 acres of off-leash doggy fun and requires a membership card to enter to ensure that all dogs can play in a safe environment.

Dog owners should also check out the Princeton Mountain Lake Trail, one of the hiking trails in the Princeton area. This pleasant path takes adventurers through a stroll through picturesque woodlands and goes around a little lake and is a favorite among the lakes. Other interesting trails are the Kingston Branch Loop Trail and Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail.

Visitors to Princeton, New Jersey, with dogs will surely enjoy the lush gardens of the Princeton University Campus and the Morven Museum and Gardens.
