About: Welcome to the number one pet vacation destination east of the Mississippi, where all your dog has to bring is its love for everything. Great for all ages and temperaments, big and small, short and tall, bold and shy, anxious and spry. Your loved one will not miss you as much as you would like at this heavenly dog retreat. Instead, he’ll become a member of the The Mr. Wiggles Waggy Wonderland pack, some of the most wonderful dogs the world has ever known. On arrival, Mr. Wiggle’s regulars who have gone through the Mr Wiggles's Waggy Wonderland training program will eagerly welcome your pup and, during their stay, will teach them the ways of the pack, even the way of the world. These conditioned pros encourage guests to feel more comfortable in their new surroundings in record time and serve as brilliant teachers who will undoubtedly complement, if not improve, your dog’s overall greatness. Every day at Mr. Wiggles is a celebration of being on vacation. Daily off-site excursions are the talk of the town and typically range from 3-6 hours. Snow, rain or shine, the party goes on all the time. In nature, we have partnered up with many of the local wildlife to ensure the most exclusive spots are at our disposal, free from danger and filled with magical moments. We also have hookups in NYC, various beaches and lakes, and a few other hush-hush spots. Chariot training, aka pulling me on a skateboard, is another guest favorite. Standard amenities include but not limited to: Authentic bonds, earned love, and nonstop companionship Constant oversight by the Nicholas, the resident dog whisperer Daily offsite adventures Indoor/Outdoor fun Couches/Beds Leashes/Collars Purified Water More photos and videos than you could hope for Medication/special dietary needs Fenced yard Air Purifiers Garmin tracking collars 24-hour freedom (crating and separation only by guest choice) Mr Wiggles Waggy Wonderland is open to guests 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It is a full time vacation, socialization, and educational paradise for all ages. Nicholas is an expert in dog behavior, training, and commanding the pack. He easily reads the needs of every guest and keeps the environment comfortable for all. All go through a thorough vetting process to ensure there are no poopers in our party

Katrina was great checking in on our 2 cats while we were on holiday. One cat is very skittish but she opened up and played by day 2. Katrina was prompt for all check ins and great with communication (even when we were slow). We will definitely be using her again to watch our babies.

Nicole is my person to call if I ever need help with my parrot and dog. Both require special attention which is an obstacle for me since I travel for work. Nicole does everything right by walking the dog, playing with the bird, and giving the love my pets deserve. Nicole is very easy to work with and is always reachable when she’s working with my pets.

About: I have taken care of dogs since I was younger. I was never allowed to have a dog but always took care of my friends and extended families dogs. I used to pet sit a few years back but stopped just before covid and college. I currently work from home Fridays and have Saturday and Sunday usually available. I am available for boarding on those days and weekdays after 5 pm. In my home I have a backyard, I live near big parks and dog parks. I enjoy learning and interacting with dogs, learning their personalities.

Very thankful for Kelly! She was reliable and communicative during her time caring for our dogs. We received lots of updates including photos and videos. She stayed past the allotted time for a few of her visits in order to make sure everything was done properly. Kelly was positive and easy to work with even while dealing with an accident prone puppy.

Julien walked our medium sized, high-energy dog, Bean, three times last week. He was reliable, communicative, and flexible, and Bean liked him immediately. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and look forward to hiring him again.

My husband Danny and I had a meet & greet with Diane and instantly felt comfortable in trusting her to care for our two fur babies! She did a 30 minute drop in for our two cats (Lucy & Mumford) recently so we could attend a concert in NYC and was so wonderful! She not only administered oral meds to our cat Lucy but also fed both of our cats & gave them some love & playtime whilst at our home. Will definitely be a repeat customer of hers! You should be, too! xx

Mykaela would make an amazing Rover pet sitter. She is an animal lover and exhibits patience and kindness to all animals, big and small. My Jack Russell, Sage, absolutely loves her. There is no doubt in my mind that Mykaela exhibits a great level of responsibility with pets left in her care and I would have no hesitation in using her as a trusted sitter for my baby.

About: I am a responsible and mature owner of one 6 pound 8 year old choodle (chihuahua poodle mix) and 3 adult cats ages 11 and two 10 years old. I am located one block from police station and 3 blocks from an animal hospital. I live in a walkable neighborhood and occasionally on sunny dry days I take my dog to Montclair Brookdale Dog Park or Watsessing Park on the East Orange/Bloomfield borderline. My first priority is my pets and any pet visitors in my home. I am able to provide care services in my home or in your home within my local. If I can have my dog stay in your home if you need or want house sitting services then I can do that. Otherwise I can visit your home daily.

Tashiyana communicated superbly with me from the beginning. She was reliable and ready to take on some new skills like learning how to give my kitty a liquid medication if needed. Very good about sending picture and video updates - I think she’s a much better photographer of my cat than I am ? Thank you for taking care of Pudge!
