Professional, Passionate Dog Walkers And Pet Sitters


4Paws is a dog walking and pet sitting company that services Montclair, Glen Ridge, Bloomfield, Upper Montclair, Verona, Caldwell, West Caldwell and Roseland, providing professional pet care for your companion animals.

4Paws was born of our deep bond with animals, and our shared experience as volunteers at PAWS, the much-loved animal shelter at North Willow Street  that was a staple of the Montclair community for many years.

Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to. – Alfred A. Montapert

We have a combined 50+ years experience walking dogs of all size and temperament, many of whom came to the shelter unruly, untrained and unwanted, and went on to become loving and adored family members. We have all over the years shared our homes with any number of dogs and cats (many, like us, PAWS veterans), and we’re dedicated to lavishing the same love and devotion on your pet.

4Paws is a member of Pet Sitters International and Pet Sitters Associates, and all our pet sitters are bonded, insured and certified. We are currently servicing Montclair, Glen Ridge, Bloomfield, Upper Montclair, Verona, Cedar Grove, the Caldwells and Roseland, and will be expanding shortly.

For many years, the dogs and cats of PAWS were family, and we all felt pride, joy and more than a little sadness when they left for their new homes. Though PAWS no longer occupies the familiar teal blue building, our work finding loving homes for homeless, lost or abandoned cats and dogs continues (as does our search for a suitable new location.) In addition to providing outstanding services to Essex County pet owners, 4Paws will continue to advocate for shelter adoption, and remain involved with numerous humane issues and organizations. We are offering a special discount to families of shelter-adopted dogs.

Scattered around the website are photos of dogs and cats: Most are clients of ours, some are our own beloved pets, others are formerly homeless dogs who have been adopted or are awaiting adoption through PAWS.

There’s another thing that separates us from animals. We aren’t afraid of vacuum cleaners. -Jeff Stilson
