… the owners truly love their pets in their charge …
“Silver Hound Dog Walking (and Cat Sitting) was recommended to me by the Cat Adoption Center where I volunteer. The owners truly love the pets in their charge. They manage the business in professional and responsible manner. Before they cared for my two boy cats for the first time, they visited my house to meet them and me! I also needed to provide veterinary information before the first visit, and then paid in advance using a credit card or Paypal.
I have hired Silver Hound Dog Walking many times. When I am away, I look forward each evening to that day’s email”update,” which often includes photos! The fees are fair, and I feel confident that my boys will be taken care of wonderfully whenever I need to be away! Thank you Silver Hound Dog Walking!”

… They are reliable, thoughtful, efficient and take such good care of Max! …
“We cannot express how grateful we are to have found Zue and Silver Hound. My husband and I work in NYC and always have had a mid-day walk arranged for our slightly stubborn and very animated French Bulldog, Max. When we made the move from Hoboken to Maplewood we knew one of our top priorities was finding a dog walker in our new town and Zue was so wonderful from the start! She was super responsive to all my emails (even three weeks before the big move) and she and O’Brian took the time to come meet us and Max right when we moved. They are reliable, thoughtful, efficient (love the online scheduling!) and take such good care of Max. We rely on them to walk him each weekday and we certainly credit them for helping to make the move and adjustment super easy on Max. They even take the time to watch out for Max in the warmer weather and provide him with water and lots of shade strolling. I would definitely recommend them to anyone! ”

… most importantly, they are just really wonderful with our dog, …
“We’re so happy with Silver Hound Dog Walking. Zue and Britt take such great care of Sunny, our almost 8 year old Lhasa Apso. They’re simple to book, reliable and most importantly, are just really wonderful with our dog, who clearly adores them. I’d definitely recommend them to other dog and cat owners in the area.”
~ Sharon F. with SUNNY, Lhasa Apso
… They are truly the best in class! …
“I have been using SilverHound Dog Walking for almost a year now, and I couldn’t be happier. Their attentiveness, thoughtfulness and overall attention to detail make leaving my Max in their care stress free.
Max is a rescue, which meant that he came with some issues. I told Zue and O’Brian that I enrolled in puppy training and they committed to learning everything that I was working on with Max to maintain consistent behavior! It felt great to have them backing me up. They are so patient with him. They really love what they do and care for Max as if he was their own. I have recommended them to several of my neighbors. They are truly best in class! ”

“I can’t say enough good things about Silver Hounds. They are professional, courteous, and they genuinely care about the well-being of the pets they care for. While on vacation, they provided us with daily updates on our cat, checked our mail, and even alternated our lights. Great service! We will definitely do business with them again. ”

… extremely responsive to emails and is able to answer a lot of our questions …
“My husband and I can not say enough good things about Silver Hound Dog Walking! Zue and O’Brian are absolutely amazing! When we got our puppy she was only 12 weeks old. We were extremely nervous about leaving her all day. When we met with Zue and O’Brian they knew exactly what to say to keep us calm and showed us the most wonderful professionalism and care for our puppy. Both Zue and O’Brian leave an online journal after they come to your house. We always know how our puppy did after they leave her. Zue is extremely responsive to emails and is able to answer a lot of our questions we have about training a new puppy (even when we ask a million of them!) Both Zue and O’Brian even work on commands with her. They taught her how to “give five” in just a few days!! We have absolutely no fears when we leave our house in the morning because we know that Zue and O’Brian will take good care of our puppy! We are super grateful to have found them! ”

…We always come home to a happy, relaxed Zoe …
“We love Zue and how talented she is with our difficult 7 year old lab mix. When we adopted Zoe she came with dog aggression issues which Zue handles perfectly. She even works with Zoe when we’re away so we return to an even better dog. We always come home to a happy, relaxed Zoe. ”

… I wouldn’t have left him with anyone else …
“We love Zue! She takes care of our dog as if it were her own. We moved to Maplewood and didn’t have a dog sitter. We found Silver Hound and couldn’t be more thrilled with the service. Zue is very responsive, responsible and trustworthy. Just a couple of weeks ago our dog was recovering from surgery and unfortunately I couldn’t stay with him during the day. We called Zue and she took great care of him; I wouldn’t have left him with anyone else. I highly recommend Silver Hound, they are fantastic.”

… i highly – highly recommend Silver Hound Services to anyone that loves their pet and wants the best of the best …
“Zue is amazing! We are extremely cautious and slightly over protective over our fur kiddos.
We trust her in our home and with our babies lives- which is saying a mouthful considering I would rather quit my job vs. leave them with another service. We have had horrible experiences with pet nannys that walk our kids with aggressive dogs, driven around in a car pack w/ dogs, yelled at by an overwhelmed sitter and much more I don’t want to recall. When we moved from Weehawken to Maplewood- nothing else stressed me out more than the dreaded interviews. They all sound lovely but after a month- service is awful and the fur kids suffer. Again, I almost quit my job to take care of them myself. Then we met Zue. She knocked us off our socks at the consultation, so I was instantly thinking :to good to be true” Hence why I waited months to write a review. In a quick nutshell- She is sent from Heaven. I can’t think of one negative thing about her Pet Care abilities. One of my main concerns is if she can protect my pups if an aggressive dog comes out of nowhere. Sadly, there are a few pet owners in the area that have no control of their dogs. The answer is YES….she can handle any situation that comes her way. I’m obsessed with my rescue babies and their safety is priority.
We get daily emails with their activities and we really love the text with pictures- but usually I end of crying at work because I miss them so much. I’m weird I guess!
I highly- highly recommend Silver Hound Services to anyone that loves their pet and wants the best of the best. Meatball and Penne love Auntie Zue!!!!!!”
