Carly Kaplan Baldachino

Founder & Owner

Dog Walker / Pet Sitter

I'm currently a resident of Belmar, NJ with my husband Anthony and our 2 kitten boys Harry and Cheeto. I have always had a passion for taking care of animals. Being around all types of animals brings me so much joy.

I was a member, secretary, and then the president of the Howell Youth Leadership Council- Police Athletic League in high school from 2011-2015.

For one semester in 2017 I studied abroad in Annecy, France while getting my associates at Brookdale Community College.

In June of  2018 I started working full-time as an official Dog Walker and Pet Sitter through the apps Wag and Rover.

While interning for the Entrepreneurial Think Tank for Women I was inspired to start my own business. 

In November 2019 Best Paw First LLC- Dog Walking and Pet Sitting was born and I have made this my full-time official career.

I graduated from GCU in May 2020 with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration.

In June 2021 as BPF LLC kept growing I started hiring awesome pet care professionals to join the pack. In January 2022 I went on the 10 day Birthright trip to Israel and left my team in charge and everything ran wonderfully.

I love my career and I love all of the 100+ BPF furbabies I meet and get to take care of. I couldn't ask for anything better in life.

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!
