“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.

Hello! My name is Suzanne! My background starts when I was a child. We had a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. I learned how to care for her. It went on where I became the reliable kid in the neighborhood taking care of not only dogs but horses, goats cats, turtles, chickens, frogs, fish etc. I loved it. My passion began. As I grew into high school I worked in my first dog kennel for several years always attention to not only impeccable cleanliness but most especially, love and affection to the dogs and cats. I always stayed late on my own time to give special attention. I loved the very hard work and all my furry friends. I then went on to work in three separate dogs facilities throughout my life. Not only working there but also pet sitting and training. My bond with dogs always came naturally to me, as well as to the dogs towards me. They always loved me. I have never been bitten and dogs seem to love me on sight. One such place I worked was a cage free doggie day care facility where I would watch approximately 30 dogs at a time. There I really honed my skills about dog behavior. I could tell just by body language, exactly how they were feeling. I would always immediately act on this as appropriate. I am now a Wag Walker and I love it! Not only do I give a walk but also train on the walk. I take my time attending to each of the individual needs of the pup. I’m not all about the money, again, it’s a love, a passion that’s been life long and enduring. I always talk to the dogs on my walk, developing an even deeper bond with each pooch to further deepen our love for one another. Relaxing them with calm affirmations and also using my tone and actions for appropriate corrections to further better leash manners for the moms and dads of the pooch. My attention to every detail and nuance is pronounced in my extremely thorough report cards. In them you will receive behaviors observed and corrections made, physical well being on the walk and what condition the poop is in as far as consistency, color, which is the first sign to overall health. I give suggestions if needed and ideas on how to make you furry child be the best they can be in all facets. Improving the overall health, care, and behavior are very important and I pay very close attention to everything. I’m not on my cell phone... I watching the dogs every step. I’m a little fanatical about how they are doing at all times. It’s not about the money, that’s just a bonus, it’s genuine love, and again, a lifelong passion.

Dog Walking in Spotswood

Spotswood, New Jersey, is a quiet little place with some lovely sights to take in. Set in Middlesex County between New York and Philadelphia, this is a great little spot to stop and relax for a while.

Head over to Jamesburg Park while visiting Spotswood. This conservation area covers a total of 1,414 acres and has four marked trails, plus many other unmarked, smaller trails to explore. Cedar Brook runs through the park and continues on into Helmetta Pond at Helme Mill Park, where you will find picnic areas, restrooms and an observation blind. You will need to keep your pooch on a lead here to keep him and the local wildlife safe.

Another green space for a pleasant pup outing is Mundy Ave Park, near DeVoe Lake. There is plenty of parking space, lots of trees to relax under, a walking path around the outside of the park, and a fantastic vista of the lake just over the road.

While there aren't any vet clinics in Spotswood, there are two veterinary clinics in neighbouring East Brunswick, so help is never far away.
