Our relationship starts with a meeting of the pack and a family profile that you will be asked to fill out in complete. This gives me a better idea of what your dog is like and what your dog likes and doesn’t like, as well as, emergency contact information. Your dog must be licensed in the city of Hoboken and should wear proper identification. You will be requested to provide two sets of keys to your residence.
Dog walking can be provided on an as needed basis. My service area encompasses the mile-square city of Hoboken. I never walk more than two dogs at a time and you can always request that your dog be walked alone. I believe it is important to communicate with a dog when they are being walked. Wag, walk & talk! Confidence and control is important when walking dogs.
