Cindy Lead Walker

Soho Lofts | Cast Iron Lofts

I’ve always been an animal lover but it wasn’t until my rescue pup Chase came into my life that my passion for animals was truly realized. Chase has taught me so much and continues to amaze me every day. Since adopting him, I have volunteered at shelters and rescues in whatever way possible. I’d been working as a Chemist for 10 years before joining Bark Buildings and I haven’t looked back since. I consider myself pretty lucky to get to spend time with different dogs and watch them grow and progress on a daily basis.

Connor Dog Walker

Columbus Towers

Hello, my name is Connor and I’m a lifelong resident of the Hudson county area, born in Hoboken and currently live in Jersey City. I have 5+ years of experience in professional pet care service, not to mention a lifetime spent around dogs! My deep and unabiding love for dogs stems from the several dogs my family and grandparents had over the course of my childhood. I currently am not allowed to have dogs of my own, so getting to work with dogs all day is the next best thing for me!

Amghy Community Manager

Jersey City, NJ.

Hi folks! I have been involved in the pet care industry for six years now! I began walking dogs in Hoboken part-time, and eventually I dedicated myself to pet care full-time. I studied Spanish Literature and Cultural Anthropology at Ramapo College of New Jersey— and I am completely obsessed with Japanese culture and food! I am so proud to be a part of the Bark Buildings team, and I look forward in getting to know you, and your four legged pal!

Alex Lead Walker

Cast Iron Lofts | Soho Lofts

Before Bark Buildings, I primarily worked Customer Service roles that were computer-based and was unhappy spending all day looking at a computer. I sought out a role that allowed me to be more active and turn my love for dogs into a career. Now I love to come to work to play with my furry buddies every day! I treat and love every dog like it’s my own, and I’m currently working on my dog behavior and training certificate to further my knowledge and better help our clients.

Jennyfer Dog Walker

Jersey City, NJ.

I’m a recent graduate of Kean University in Communication – Film/Media with big dreams to study History and Genocide/Holocaust Studies for grad school. I have a big heart for animals and became a vegetarian for them in the sixth grade! Prior to Bark Buildings, I volunteered at an animal shelter and did freelance dog walking. Sadly, I could never own a dog of my own because of my sister’s allergies but at least I was always surrounded by my friend’s cats and dogs growing up! Now at Bark Buildings, I’m always with some fabulous furry friends!

Tracie Canine Specialist

Jersey City, NJ.

I’m a certified dog trainer with Catch Trainer’s Academy and have a Master’s degree in social work. I’ve had a lifelong love of dogs and started volunteering in animal shelters at 12 years old. Before Bark Buildings, I worked for multiple shelters and am also an advocate for animal welfare, working against puppy mills in the state of NJ and nationwide. Currently I have a two rescue dogs, Stella an ACD/Catahoula mix who loves playing Frisbee, and Tyrion, a Maltese/Yorkie who loves stealing Stella’s Frisbees.

Raquel Lead Walker

Columbus Towers

I’ve worked with animals for 3 years prior to Bark Buildings, in jobs ranging from pet retail, to doggie daycare, and independent dog walking! I’ve also volunteered to assist with feeding/playing with cats that are up for adoption at Pet Valu, and I own an adorable Yorkie named May. My favorite part of this job is seeing how excited the dogs get before each walk, and getting lots of slobbery kisses and cuddles! In the long run, I would like to be an Animal Rehabilitation Therapist.
