Dog Walker / Pet Sitter
There was not one of PJ Sackerman’s friends or family members surprised by the recent change in her career direction. After twenty-five plus years as a practicing attorney, PJ has taken her legal shingle down. Joining Carly Kaplan’s Best Paw First team of nurturing and caring dog walkers/pet-sitters, PJ is spending her days pursuing her lifetime passion!
As far back as her memory goes, PJ recalls having an unwavering love for every one of our planet’s fluffy creatures - large and small! In fact, she was no more than six years old when moved to tears by the 1966 family adventure film, Born Free. Raised in a home that included poodles, PJ has always considered pups to be her best and most faithful companions.
Life is simply too short to settle. For PJ, this means her time needs to be spent doing something of great personal meaning and conviction. Early in her legal career, as a New York City assistant district attorney, Ms Sackerman had the rare opportunity to prosecute a case of animal abuse. These days, having left the somewhat predictable and rigid field of law, PJ has found the greatest joy and fulfillment imaginable as she lovingly shares her days with wonderful, charming, funny, whimsical, beautiful and decidedly unique pets!
PJ has been walking our Skye girl who’s a Collie for a few months. She’s very caring & patient with her. Our Skye is over 70 pounds & she handles her well. I would definitely recommend using her for any dog!

PJ is fantastic with my two cats! You can tell she truly is an animal lover and she always sends me such thorough updates (plus lots of pictures) when we are away! She spends lots of time playing with them and their food bowls and litter box are pristine when we get home. I always have peace of mind leaving my precious fur babies knowing PJ will be coming to check in on them!
