“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.

“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 Raritan

With just a few thousand residents, it may surprise visitors that Raritan has everything a family with a four-legged member could want. Only a single veterinary clinic has set up shop within the borough's boundaries. Nevertheless, a short five-minute drive in any direction will yield numerous veterinary clinics for whatever health need you pup would need. 

The borough maintains five parks with open areas for on-leash strolling with a human companion. Frelinghuysen Park and Basilone Park serve that need to be outdoors with some necessary green areas for on-leash exercise. All five parks show the borough's commitment to providing recreational spaces for its residents with furry families!

The Raritan Dog Park at 1st Avenue has all the necessary fun stuff for a pup. It has a double-gated entry into a grassy space for off-leash exercise. All dogs play together here, with no separate section reserved for smaller pups. Benches positioned in the shade are sure to keep the human companions happy.

In addition to the outdoor fun, the borough has some dog-friendly eateries. Randazzo's Pastry Shop and Deli on 611 US 202 has Italian sandwiches and Italian cuisine on its lunch and dinner menus. It has two outdoor dog-friendly seats for you and your canine dining companion.
