Dog Walking

Finding you are working long hours or are not able to get out of the house? Our daily dog walking services gives you the peace of mind you need during your hectic schedule.  Our service is structured to provide for your dog’s individualized needs ensuring your dog gets the attention it deserves!  We never engage in “group” or “pack walks” utilized by other walking services that provide little, if any, real exercise. Walks can be scheduled for as few or as many days a week as you require. There are never any set minimums. You are in charge; you decide when and how many walks are needed.  Walks may be scheduled from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

Pet Sitting

Our pet sitting service provides you peace of mind when you are out of town, whether for pleasure or business, and your pet cannot accompany you.  We make multiple visits to your home from 1-4 times a day for as few or as many days as you need us to. We provide for all of your pet’s needs as well as care for your home while you are away. We do all of the following in your absence: Provide food, fresh water, and treats, exercise, personal attention and TLC, administer medications, change litter boxes, notify you of any health/behavioral issues, and transport to your veterinarian if necessary.

My family has been using Pet Watchers for years. They have taken care of our puppies and helped train them. They’ve taken care of our older dogs and provided the extra care they need.

They follow the dogs schedule and make suggestions on our dogs behavior (we have a chewer).

They take care of our bird as well. Feeding and watering her.

Pet Watchers has become part of our family. If you’re looking for someone to watch your pets I highly recommend them. And if you’re in the Caldwell area ask for Joan. She’s fantastic!

For the past ten years,we have been using PetWatchers to take care of our Siamese cat while my husband and I travel. We highly recommend their services.

“We’ve been using Pet Watchers for years to look after our cat when we’re out of town. Elizabeth has been our petwatcher these last few times and she’s done an excellent job. I would highly recommend Pet Watchers!”

~Stuart H. Bloomfield, NJ

“We have been using Pet Watchers for ten years. We find them dependable, always available when we need them and they are very caring towards the pets. They’ll take care of your pets, plants and mail. We highly recommend their services.”

~Beth C. Caldwell, NJ

“Pet Watchers has watched my 2 Labs and two cats since we got them in 2007. They are wonderful caretakers and can be called upon for last minute schedule changes or appointments. They have substitutions for any vacation or holiday issues, but we’ve basically had the same person all these years. The animals love her and so do we! I highly recommend Pet Watchers for your family!”

~Kathy M. Verona, NJ

“Pet Watchers has taken incredibly good care of our dog. We started with two dogs, one of whom was getting old and sick and died earlier this year. Our dog walker was so caring of both dogs and very attuned to how our older dog was feeling. She gave us updates and contacted me on my cell phone if she thought something needed my attention. She had so much genuine concern for our older dog and it gave us a lot of peace of mind to know our older dog was in such good hands when we couldn’t be there ourselves.

Now we only have our younger dog.
Our dog walker is so great with him. He loves her and she gives him the exercise he needs.

Our dog walker is also really flexible about arranging for additional walks on short notice.

All of this means that we can leave our dog during the day without worrying because we know that a very capable, responsible and caring person is coming to walk him.”
