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

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 2 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.

My name is Ian and I'm from New Orleans, Louisiana. I grew up with dogs and cats my entire life. Currently the family dog stays with my parents down south, and she is a black Lab mix coming up to 12 years now. My early teens I ran a neighborhood pet care service with my brother. We would walk our neighbors dogs and cats, as well as feed and bathe them. We also boarded an old terrier every now and then for an elderly couple. I'm currently an actor and I love animals and exercise, so this opportunity seemed perfect as a source of income.

“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.
