Hi! My name is Michael Josephs. I have been a dog lover for most of my life. From helping raise my family dog, Josie, when I was a kid, to rescuing the newest member of our family, Willy, I have always felt very connected to “man’s best friend.” Prior to starting Parkside Pups, people would see me walking my pup, Willy, and I was often asked to walk, train, or pet sit their pups. Parkside Pups was created out of love for the dogs of Brooklyn. Whether you are looking for dog walking or pet sitting, Parkside Pups is here to help, have fun, and guide your furry friends.
Prior to Parkside Pups, I was a Movement Teacher for Special Needs youth in NYC and was fortunate enough to work as a teacher throughout the U.S. and Asia. When I am not hanging with my furry friends, I also enjoy riding motorcycles, hiking, kayaking, sketching, and spending time with my family.
*I have Dog Walking Insurance and am First Aid and CPR certified for dogs.
