Strut Your Mutt NJ -  Devoted Dog Walking, Pet Sitting, & Boarding

Strut Your Mutt began when I worked with Father John's Animal House (a no- kill shelter in Lafayette) and I saw so many abused, neglected pets who needed help. We cater to those pets.  Strut LOVES Pitties, Mastiffs, Dobermans and any breed my mother considers to be "difficult." 

We've been successful working with pets who do not easily trust. We specialize in disabled pet care, specifically in Diabetic pets, blind dogs, deaf pets, incontinent older dogs/cats, and any pet with autoimmune diseases. With these pets, our owner is a Diabetic herself, so she's the primary caretaker.

If you want the utmost diligence and dedication, this is the pet sitting service you need.  If your pet is disabled and you want minimal visits, this is not the service for you.

We pet sit in Vernon, McAfee, Ogdensburg, Franklin, Glenwood, Hamburg, Hardyston,

Highland Lakes, parts of West Milford, and anywhere in between.

If you are located more than 10 miles from us, we charge a .50 fee per mile.  

We also pet sit in Wantage, Sussex, & Warwick, NY ($25/visit each town).  

If your area is not listed, please contact us about traveling to meet you. We always have referrals for other pet sitters nearby.

Our immediate, free “Meet & Greet” allows us to get to know one another.

You can decide if Strut Your Mutt is a good fit for your pet(s).
Text or email to plan a free Meet & Greet. Texting works quickly. We always get back ASAP!

Services & Fees:

Dog Walking/Pet Sitting: $20-22/45 minutes (this includes our travel time)
We come to your place to walk your leashed dog, or to play (and poo, of course!) in your fenced yard. While we're pet sitting, your pets are given water, treats, medications if necessary, and much love. Your dogs and your home will be cared for,  clean and happy....we promise! More than one dog? $22-25, depending on distance.

Dog Boarding: (limited service): $45 per dog per day 

We now offer in-your-home pet sitting through my soul-sister, Jean, in Montague, NY!

This works only for smaller or disabled dogs. My Chihuahua has a Napoleon complex. I'm sorry: it's true. We have boarded an incontinent deaf Bichon Frise, a Beagle puppy, a blind Poodle, a crazy Min Pin, a Yorkie, and a blind Westie. Before staying at my home, your doggie visits with us, to see if we're a good fit!

Pet Sitting / Brief Visit (cats, iguanas, birds, chinchillas, turtles):  $18
We come and clean litter, cages, whatever is necessary for your pet. Of course, we give food, water & diligent attention.

Pet Taxi: $20 per hour (extra gas charge if more than ten miles) 
We transport & stay with your pet at the groomer, or at veterinarian. No worries.

Weekends: Extra $5 charge/visit

​Holidays:  Extra $5 charge/visit

Thanksgiving, July 4th (when dogs are in panic mode with fireworks!), Christmas Eve ($25) & Day, New Years Eve & Day, Labor Day.

On those days you spend with family, I spend with your dogs.

We bring in your trash cans, take in those Amazon purchases for safe-keeping, water your plants, turn on lights & air conditioning if necessary, and any “doggie oops! moments” are cleaned up & laundered!
