    “There’s nothin more lovin in this world than dogs”

    I’ve done more than 90 overnight sittings and there is nothing, I love more in the world than dogs. They’re the most loving creatures on this planet. I've volunteered for the Hawaiian humane society and I donate to ASPCA monthly. I can’t wait to take care of, walk or sit with your babies. Feel free to contact me for questions.

    “Dog walking is no job - it's a passion!”

    Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for 4 years now, which I absolutely love! I have had an endearing love for dogs since 2001 when my parents finally gave into the many pleas of my two younger brothers and I to get us a dog. We were introduced to Tiki, a magnificent Black Labrador, who became the sister we never had.

    “Puppy Love!!!”

    Hi, my name is Gene and I am a pet Dad to Buddy a 4.5 yr old Yorkie. Buddy is a rescue and has saved me as much as I have saved him. Pets are family and should be treated as such. Rest assured, if your pet is in my care, they will be treated as if I was in possession of your child. Thank you for the opportunity to be of service.

    Meredith is an excellent dog-walker! Zoltan took to her immediately, and she knows what she is doing. She is very professional, walks at a brisk pace, and handled Zoltan very well. He is a grown pitbull mix and around 65 pounds and she had no problem walking him. We are going to try to book her again for all of his walks!

    North Scotch Plains

    North Scotch Plains is an overwhelmingly green neighborhood with plenty of room to run and play the days away with your pupperfic pal. You will find plenty of reasons to grab a handful of waste bags and some tennis balls and head out the door with Sparky for an afternoon of tail-wagging fun. Echo Lake Park is just a shore drive away and offers the very best in both green grass and a beautiful lake for exploring. Make sure you have plenty of drinking water with you and a collapsible bowl for easy storage while you are on your adventures.

    West Scotch Plains is another beautiful green residential neighborhood. Residents here can be seen grilling delicious food in their yards while their excited pups wait for someone to drop something. You will encounter plenty of new friends for Spot during your walks, so make sure he is on his best behavior. You can take a stroll through the neighborhood streets, or you can wander over to one of the many streams that run through the area for a quiet place to read a book on the grass while your dog sniffs and splashes around. Just keep a towel on hand in case he decides to share the fun!

    Central Scotch Plains is a mixture of residential space and open greenery that will have your dog barking for joy whenever she sees her leash. She will love going with you for an after-work walk to relieve some stress, or taking a longer trip to the Ponderosa Farm Park. Leashed pets are welcome at this park, and everyone should agree to clean up after themselves and leave the areas cleaner than they found them. This will ensure that the park is available for years to come for a whole new generation of pups and people, so make sure you have plenty of waste bags!

    East Scotch Plains is just minutes away from several reservations and parks. A local favorite is Oak Ridge Park. Your dog can join you for a walk or a hike through the park on-leash throughout the week and on weekends. Keep in mind that the park can get busy on weekends and during the warmer months, so plan accordingly and know your dog’s signals when she is feeling overwhelmed. Be prepared with waste bags and a short leash to keep her close to you and reassured that all is well while meeting new dogs and people. Don’t forget treats and toys to reward her for doing well!

    South Scotch Plains is in the center of golf courses, reservations, and nature preserves. With so much greenery surrounding the homes, it's easy to see why the neighborhood is seeing an increase in population over the last few years. Dogs love this neighborhood due to the local wildlife that entertains them as the birds and squirrels scamper from tree to tree and bush to bush. Your dog will enjoy every minute of his walks with you before and after work as you explore South Scotch Plains. Just make sure you bring waste bags on your walks and teach your dog to share the sidewalk with other pups.
