Sparrow's Pets


Pet sitting in your home while you are away. I am fully insured and reliable.

"We just had the BEST experience with Sparrow!! We usually leave our puppy with family when we're away, so we were extremely nervous "boarding" for the first time. Well this was far from boarding. Our puppy Shadow has found his home-away-from-home. Sparrow treated him like her own with tons of love, affection and playtime. He hung out in the house as if it was his own, and ran around the yard like a nut with all his new doggie friends! She brought such peace of mind to our vacation, and joy to our Shadow while we were away. THANK YOU"

"Sparrow is an absolute blessing, my husband and I are more than happy to have found someone that's so knowledgeable and loving. My puppy had an awesome time! Sparrow sent pictures and updates that helped ease our mind since we had a prior bad experience with a different boarding house. Thank you sparrow , you are the BEST!! ❤️"

"I wouldn't leave my dogs with just anyone. Sparrow takes such great care of my two beagles. They have a great big yard to run around on. What I love the most is the constant pictures and updates of how my dogs are doing while I'm away. I also love the extra service she provides such as pick up and drop off."

"We found Sparrow by chance after our old pet sitter closed his business...and I am very happy for that. We have an 8 yr old boxer named Maggie and she cannot be put in a crate which is why Sparrow's house is perfect for her. Huge yard to run in and play with the other dogs and then she gets to lounge out and sleep...Maggie is a snuggler so generally she is on their bed!! I could not be more at ease knowing that Maggie is in such good hands when we are away!!!"

"I highly recommend Sparrow, she is huge dog lover, extremely reliable and safety oriented. She has walked and boarded both of our dogs, Luna when she was old and frail and then Lucia who is still a bouncing pup full of energy! Sparrow loves what she does and it shows in her commitment and connection to our pups!"

About


  

Hi! I am Sparrow. I grew up in Santa Barbara, CA and went to college in Boulder, CO where I got my BFA in Sculpture. I moved to NYC in January 2000 and worked in a fabrication shop, building props and window displays. I moved on to work in retail and trade shows doing visual merchandising. Eventually I got the courage to start up my own business and I began walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ in 2013. I adore dogs and I love my fur covered clients as if they were my own. I still see and work with some of my Hoboken clients!  

My husband, Kurt, and I moved to to Flemington in late 2016 and are enjoying a slower paced life. We were boarding dogs in our home and unlike a traditional kennel, the dogs were treated as if they lived here. Currently we are undergoing the long process of getting zoned and licensed as a "kennel" to satisfy the county and State regulations. Until that is done, I am walking dogs and offering petsitting in your home while you are away. I am fully insured and reliable.

 



 










Service Area


I live in Locktown which is between Flemington and Frenchtown off of Route 12.
