What We Do

Dusty Trail Dog Walking and Pet Sitting is Central New Jersey’s complete in-home pet sitting company, servicing parts of Union County and Middlesex County. We offer a variety of services and the highest quality pet care to assure families total peace of mind while they’re away.

Every pet is an individual with unique behavior. We provide one-on-one care to give every pet their deserved attention without feeling rushed or overwhelmed. This enables us to take our time and get every detail of the visit completed. 

Dusty Trail is always looking for responsible and professional individuals who have a high drive to help animals live happy lives. Our sitters are carefully selected using a thorough screening process that includes background checks and references before becoming part of the Dusty Trail team. We offer pet first aid certification to our sitters, and they are required to go through our training program before their first solo visit is assigned. We take this very seriously.

If you have the experience and are ready to represent Dusty Trail with love and respect, please fill out the questionnaire below. We will be reaching out to you very soon! 

**individuals must live within or adjacent to our service area to minimize driving time between pet sitting visits***
