Carly has always been fantastic with my dog Cleveland. She is a terrific communicator and always responds very fast. She’s also helped me when I’ve been in a pinch and needed a walker when I’ve had to work longer hours. Carly will always be my go to person for my dog.

PJ is a kind and gentle human being that has a natural affinity for pets. We are completely comfortable leaving our fur babies in PJs care for walks and overnights.

Carly and Jess both walk out fur babe Frisco, and are great at keeping us updated on their arrival and departure as well as in depth descriptions and photos of their visit. They even go above and beyond sometimes when needed. We also have a cat and they clean up his fur balls and make sure he gets love too. I would highly recommend their services! I think the animals would too :)

I honestly did not think I would be lucky enough to find someone I trusted with my dog, and that I felt comfortable with, when I started searching for a dog walker. Then I met Carly.

She is professional, reliable and great with my dog (who is lovable, but can be a challenge).

Carly took the time to listen to all my thoughts and concerns and explained how she would handle things based on the experience she had previously. She was able to bond with my dog quickly and made him feel calm and comfortable. My dog is always excited to see her. That means the world to me.  

I recommend Carly to anyone who has a beloved family pet.  They will be in great hands!!

Carly at Best Paw First has been a game changer for us and our beagle Duke! Having someone I trust that is able to take good care of Duke during the week while my wife and I are at work gives us great peace of mind. When I met Carly I immediately knew she was a great dog person and a great fit for us and she walks Duke every weekday for us and has been doing so for about a year. She is consistent and reliable and always sends updates and good pictures. She gives Duke lots of time and attention and she is very detail oriented. Duke loves her and does “zoomies” and brings her toys whenever she comes over. I have recommended her to friends already and would recommend her to anyone.

If you're in the Freehold area, look no further! We have two cats who are our little babies (Milo and Willow) so when we booked a 2 week trip we were so nervous to leave them but -Milo, Willow and I couldn’t of been happier after finding Carly ! Carly is amazing she took care of them for 12 nights straight and did an amazing job. It’s hard to find someone that can be trusted to come into your home and take care of your babies so we are thrilled! She did a meet and greet first and sent us picture updates every day we were away -also left our house spotless we didn’t have to worry at all! It was such a great feeling. Carly will be my designated cat sitter from now on!

Finding Carly to walk and take care of our puppies has been a true blessing for my husband and I.  You assume that when you hire a dog walker, they will naturally be attentive in the time allotted with your pet.  What we have discovered with Carly is that she goes above and beyond the typical “walk” every single visit.  Carly ensures that each puppy gets the affection and attention that any puppy/dog craves.  She can individualize them all while playing together in group play which is an excellent bonding exercise.  Carly sends cute and playful pictures each day with a report on how the day went leaving my husband and I feeling reassured while we are unable at work.  She has even gone so far as to clean up after one of our lil pups had an accident to the extent that I had nothing to freshen up when I came home from work.  This example displays above and beyond help that was not contracted…she just did what she thought was right and helpful,… which certainly reflects her compassionate nature .  Carly has several outstanding assets including reliability, respectfulness, responsiveness, passion, and empathy.    Most importantly, Carly is trustworthy.  We, in good consciousness, trust Carly with our home and with our family without any doubt or concern, which alleviates any worry we may have had when leaving our household to a stranger.  That brings me to my last point….Carly has become a friend and an asset in our family that we truly appreciate.  I would like to think that Carly is part of the pack, lol ;)…..and our dogs adore her,… as do we ;)

Carly is an amazing pet sitter! I am so thankful I found her. I have used her on numerous occasions to do drop-in visits for my animals while I am at work during the day. I am a repeat client and could not imagine hiring anyone else!

Carly is dependable, trustworthy, and an excellent communicator. All-in-all, she is a true professional. I know that I can count on her… and I am v. protective of my fur children!! Upon our first meet and greet, I knew that her positive demeanor and genuine compassion for animals would provide me with the comfort that I need to leave my pets in the care of a sitter.

During the drop-in visit she takes my dog for a walk and spends time w/ my cats. She provides a very detailed description of her visit each day. She will also send photos!

In terms of service, Carly goes way above and beyond anything I would ever expect of a pet sitter. I can unequivocally state that you will not be disappointed in your decision to hire Carly!

I highly recommend her to anyone --- friends, family, and the community!
