Carly Kaplan

Founder & Owner

Dog Walker / Pet Sitter

I'm currently a resident of Belmar with my 3 kitten boys Harry, Larry, and Cheeto and I couldn't be happier. I started working full-time as an official Dog Walker and Pet Sitter in June 2018 through the apps Wag and Rover. I have always had a passion for taking care of animals and doing this brings me so much joy. This is why I decided to make this my official career and create Best Paw First LLC in November 2019. I did this while going and then graduating from Georgian Court University in May 2020 with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration. I have never looked back since.


Carly is a fantastic dog walker ! She is always on time , reliable , stays longer & always communicates with me each visit with my dog . I have a 2yr old chocolate Lab & she is very active & needs a lot of exercise . Carly walks / runs with my dog at least 1 mile a day & then plays with her & gives her much happy attention & tender loving care !! I feel My dog & my house are always safe & in good hands with Carly !!!

Sadie and Crystal

We were caught in a Catch 22 because we were traveling out of state & couldn’t find last minute boarding. A friend recommended Rover & it was the best decision! Carly was amazing with our Sadie and Crystal & they loved her too. Daily pictures, texts & updates were a treat as last service we used sent NOTHING! She made it easy for us to feel very comfortable leaving part of our family in her care. I will definitely use & recommend this sweetheart of a girl to my friends!
