Maribeth

Owner

I started my business doing just mid day walks myself and grew it into a professional pet care business with staff. My background is in Nutrition and Exercise and I am very health oriented. I usually take my daily clients for at least a mile walk and average about 10 plus miles a day. I had an opportunity to work for Holly Tree Animal Hospital as a kennel assistant from 2009-2014 and was appreciative of the knowledge they shared with me. It was rewarding and helped me learn so much about pet health and wellness. If you are in the Schenectady area look for our logo or the walkers with the “official dog walker” on their back!

I am a country girl from Perth NY. I have had animals my entire life and continue taking in strays, by rescue or adoption. I worked for the State Police for 32 years in different office settings but I am now retired which gives me more time to spend with my own dogs and cats that come in and out of my life but also love helping others with their animals.

Pet Sitter / Dog Walker

I have spent most of my adult life in the country living in Delanson where I had a hobby farm with horses, goats, dogs , cats and chickens. I started my interest in dogs over 30 years ago and have spent a lot of my time working and training my own and helping others with theirs. I was fortunate to work with a service dog trainer several years ago to learn different techniques as my mom had a service dog. I am currently volunteering with a local dog trainer as well to help me continue to expand my knowledge. I have a great love for all animals big and small. I look forward to spending time with your furry family members.

Pet Sitter / Dog Walker

Greetings! I retired from Schenectady County in 2022 after a 30-year career in Child Welfare. I had spent the last 15 years establishing and running the Child Advocacy Center, including coordinating the multidisciplinary team that handles the most serious cases of child abuse. I adopted a Black Lab/German Shepherd puppy and went through Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog training with her, and we utilized her for 10 years at the CAC to reduce trauma for the children. Her name was Ruby and she was well known and loved by all. I have had many pets throughout my life including a Basset Hound, Poodles, Labs, Rabbits and many cats. I currently have 3 cats and a Lab puppy. I have done overnight care for several breeds of dogs, large and small. My love for all animals goes back to my childhood in Charlton and playing on the farms of many of my friends. I tend to be drawn to protecting the vulnerable amongst our population, from senior citizens to children and of course, animals. Working for Pup-e-cise llc has allowed me exposure to so many different animals and their adorable personalities. I look forward to continuing to interact and care for all animals that we serve.
