Hi, my name is Toby. I have 7 years of experience as a freelance, regular dog walker, ranging from 1993 to 1999 in Hoboken, NJ. During this time, I also did boarding and sitting for my clients.

Soon after, My family and I adopted a rescue pup that was abandoned in the woods in Texas, when he was just a puppy. He was very sick but with a lot of patience and the best care/love, we brought him back to health and he's now a very happy/ healthy little guy. He completes us and he's my best friend. We had another Shih Tzu in our lives, named Xena. She was my brothers dog and I dog sat and walked her for many years, she was the sweetest little girl. When I still had my first dog I dog sat and dog walked, my brothers co-workers dog for a few years. His name was Oreo (black lab mix) and we both looked forward to it everyday! We became really good friends almost instantly! I dog sat and dog walked another dog and his name was Rocco and he is a Yorkie. Such a little cuddle buddy!
