Lexi's Pawrents

“We first met Michael of Parkside Pups last spring and knew immediately that he was the perfect walker for our rescue dog Lexie. He is gentle, kind, and patient - truly a dog lover at heart. We were so pleased to watch his business flourish over the past year and get to know the other competent and trained Parkside Pups walkers who have walked Lexie under his careful guidance. The level of professionalism is unparalleled and we trust that Lexie is always safe and loved (nearly as much as we do)! Most importantly she always has the most fantastic time in the park or with her other Parkside Pup friends! If you are looking for a dog walking service that feels like family, Parkside Pups is for you.”

"Michael is a true dog lover—and it's clear that the pups reciprocate. Day after day my dog was taken on wild romps in the park ...the detailed messages and great pictures that the Parkside Pups team sent after each walk always brightened my day. It's tough leaving your pup alone to go to work, but knowing that Michael or his team would be there before long to pick her up made parting easier. Your dog will be in great hands with Parkside Pups."


Diana and Cedric,

Charlie's Pawrents

"We met Michael Josephs at The Parkside Apartments, in Brooklyn, shortly after we got our pup Charlie.  In fact, Michael took him on his very first dog walk and Charlie was hooked. Charlie was enamored with Mike right away and enjoyed going on group walks with Willy and the gang.  Mike was always very prompt and very loving with our pup.  He was even available on short notice when we had things come up and needed someone to watch Charlie.  We’ve never seen Charlie more happy then when he got to go for his walks in Prospect Park.  We highly recommend Mike for his love of dogs and professionalism.  He’s not only a great dog walker but a good friend. 



Dini's Dad

Mike is as attentive, caring, and skilled a walker as anyone you will ever meet. Dini always gets excited to see him and I always get peace of mind knowing she’s in good hands. Thank you Parkside Pups!


Joaquin & Yensy,

Bulleit's Dads

Our dog Bulleit gets SO excited when Michael or anyone from the Parkside Pups team comes to pick her up. From the active adventures in the park, to pack walks in the neighborhood - and even becoming more responsive to important commands, I could not be more grateful for all that Parkside Pups has brought to Bulleit's life. Plus, the photos of her during the walk, and the map and written recap after the walk let me know that she had a great time! I highly recommend Parkside Pups - their professionalism, attention to detail, and overall amazing positive energy is unmatched!


Mike and Katie,

Myle's Pawrents

Parkside Pups is hands down the best choice for dog waking services in PLG. We interviewed a number of walkers before choosing Michael and his team to work with our Myles. They are prompt, professional and always put the pups first. It’s been important to us to keep Myles as consistent as possible with walks during COVID so she can have her socialization. Michael and his team really great to work with; would recommend without hesitation. 


Hannah and Daniel,

Arthur's Pawrents

Michael and the Parkside Pups team have been a very welcomed resource for caring for our dog! Arthur is large, 90lbs, and Michael was thoughtful to match him with a regular walker who is familiar with Arthur’s nature and habits. Communication is on point and we love getting a quick recap of the day’s walk. If we are out with Arthur and pass Michael on the sidewalk, Arthur can’t contain his joy in seeing one of his bffs.”

Astor & Marley's Pawrents

Love Parkside Pups!! They provide such an awesome service. My boyfriend and I have used them for both of our dogs and they have had great, caring, thorough walkers each time. Thanks for taking care of my fur babies!



Stella & Rocky's Mom

Michael and the team at Parkside Pups do an amazing job caring for and walking our fur children. They are very professional and dedicated to providing excellent care for our dogs and exceptional service. I love receiving the photo updates of how our babies are doing on their walks; especially when Parkside Pups is caring for our dogs while we are out of town, and we receive the daily updates with photos included on how they are doing and what they did that day. Our dogs are large and a lot to handle and I completely trust them in the care of Parkside Pups!
