The Team

We talk a big game because we walk a big dog.


Lauren is a local Hoboken resident that grew up in South Jersey. She began her journey by attending school for a vet assistant program & later worked alongside New York City's best animal surgeons at Blue Pearl Veterinary Hospital. She expanded her knowledge of all breeds even further by working with a well known & respected Hoboken dog walking company. Over the years Lauren grew a soft spot for the pit bull breed by rescuing her beloved bully Abby. Abby was very sick, emaciated and in desperate to need to get out of the shelter. A few months later she turned in to a happy, healthy pitbull and became Lauren's inspiration to change peoples minds on the breed which led her to create her Instagram Passion for Pitties. Through social media she has teamed up with many local rescues & shelters to hold fundraising events which educate people on opting to rescue dogs of all breeds. Lauren created The Walking Dog to provide the kind of pet care she would want for her own dog and in hopes that there will some day be breed equality.
