Erika Dog Walker

Jersey City, NJ.

Hello, I’m Erika. I am a wife, mother, and dog lover! Since I was a kid I have always wanted to work with or around animals. After volunteering at a shelter for 2 years, I wanted to learn more and took a course to become a certified Dog Trainer – I love learning about dog psychology! I’m also a self-taught groomer and hope to one day own dog grooming business. I love seeing the before/afters of the dogs. Bark Buildings has given me the opportunity to not just walk dogs but to spend time with them, play with them, train with them, and socialize them – I look paw-ward to building a relationship with you and your pooch. 

MJ Dog Walker

Jersey City, NJ.

Hey there! I’ve dreamt of working with animals from a young age…not sure if the love for them came from watching Animal Precinct on Animal Planet religiously or because my dad was a BIG animal lover and passed it on to me! Before Bark, I worked both at a doggy day care and as a dog walker for over a year. Eventually my goal is to become a wildlife Veterinary Technician! I’m loving the experience that working with dogs has brought me and I’m so thankful to be part of your community and your pups life.

Connor Lead Walker

Soho Lofts

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!

Krystyna Community Manager

Jersey City, NJ.

Hello! I’m a Brooklyn native who now calls New Jersey home. I dedicated five years to animal health as a veterinary assistant, specifically receiving my training in dogs, cats, and exotic animals. Outside of work, my biggest hobby is grooming dogs and I plan to continue exploring new styles and techniques for all breed types. For now, I have the perfect doggy model to practice on – my own amazing pup Ross! I am truly excited to be part of the Bark Buildings team, and hope to build relationships with all of our doggy neighbors! 

Cindy Lead Walker

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.

Eunice Lead Walker

Vantage

Hey there! My parents were huge animal lovers so I’m lucky to have grown up around lots of dogs. Helping care for their pups as well as my four cats made me realize that working with animals was what I was meant to do! I’ve been working in the pet care industry for 2+ years and am currently working towards receiving a certification in Dog Training. I am very proud to be a part of such an amazing team and feel so grateful to get to spend my days with so many furry friends.

Danielle Dog Walker

Jersey City, NJ.

My love for animals started at a young age and I always knew I would want to work with them as I got older. I’ve had dogs of all kinds, you name it I’ve had them, they are not just pets they are four-legged family members! I started walking dogs independently but am happy to transition into the Bark Buildings family since it gives me a chance to meet even more pups and have great coworkers that I get to see very day. You aren’t working if you do what you love!

Marissa Dog Walker

Jersey City, NJ.

Most recently I worked at a hospital and Urgent Care Centers as a Medical Assistant. Treating patients was very fulfilling but being indoors was not as thrilling. Working with our furry family members now gives me the satisfaction of caring for others while enjoying my love of the outdoors! Bark Buildings is the only company I trust to treat my kitty, Junior, as family. It is my pleasure to be a happy part of this company, doing my part to ensure my neighbors feel the same!

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.

Shannon Lead Walker

Columbus Towers

Loving animals came naturally to me from birth. I specialize working with canines of all breeds, but I also love and work hands on with exotic pets. I began studying forensic psychology and became nationally recognized as an NSLS honor student, but something was missing…dogs. It’s all the about the dogs! The empty gap has been catered to by 10 wonderful years of experience in pet care, but wasn’t filled until I started at Bark Buildings where I’m able to provide exceptional care to lots of incredible furry pals in Jersey City.
