We are Morgan Jenkins and Ryan Yorke, the (soon to be) husband and wife team behind We Leash The Hounds LLC. We started our business to provide a valuable dog walking service to the communities of Clark, Cranford, Westfield and Garwood New Jersey. Our decision was motivated by our mutual love of dogs and informed by our combined 10+ years of experience working with and caring for them. We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to spend each day doing what we love.
We value the safety of your dog and your home above all else. We Leash The Hounds is fully insured and bonded!
Our standard walk is 30 minutes in duration. This allows your dog ample time to both use the bathroom and enjoy the outdoors with a human companion. Our standard rate includes up to two dogs with a $5 fee for each additional dog beyond two. Walks always includes fresh water with optional feeding and administering of medications at no extra cost.
If your dog has mobility issues due to age or injury, or simply isn't a fan of walking, we are happy to offer quality cuddling or backyard playing time in lieu of walking for the entirety of our visit.
Some high energy dogs may benefit from more time outside during the day. If that sounds like your four-legged friend, we are happy to offer multiple walks throughout the day.
While we don't watch dogs in our home, we can offer multiple visits a day while you are out of town. Our standard pet sitting package consists of two walks and one potty break per day. As with all of our visits, feeding and the administration of any medications is included.
You can add additional visits a la carte to customize the perfect staycation for your pup.
Pick up & Drop Off ... $10/way
Pick up and drop off services are subject to availability and must be scheduled in advance. Taxi service is available within Clark, Cranford, Garwood and Westfield. Any rides outside of these areas and subject to an additional mileage charge.
The potty break is a shorter visit, around 15 minutes in duration. This gives your pup a chance to stretch their legs and relieve themselves on a brief walk or in the backyard. This is a great option for seniors, puppies and lazy dogs. Fresh water and lots of kisses are included, as always.
We offer a limited walking service on the weekends starting at 10AM. Due to the fact that we offer limited service on the weekends, time slots are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Due to a high volume of requests, we now require that weekend walks be scheduled with us by Thursday of that week at the latest, after which time the schedule is final.
If you anticipate the need for our services on a weekend, please contact us as far in advance as possible so that we may try to accommodate you as best as we can. To inquire about a walk outside of the time frames mentioned above, please feel free to contact us!
Walks are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. If you anticipate that your schedule will change from week to week, please give as much notice as possible about what days/times you will need so that we are better able to accommodate you. For Monday walks in particular, we request that you book no later than Sunday evening. Day-of add on requests are not guaranteed. Same day schedule changes must be made by call or text, as we are not always able to check our email throughout the day.
If you would like to set up a recurring schedule, we will maintain it from week to week and reserve your preferred time slot for your dog(s).
Weekend walks are available on a limited basis. Due to a high volume of requests, we now require that weekend walks be scheduled with us by Thursday of that week at the latest, after which time the schedule is final.

Payment is due on a weekly basis unless otherwise agreed upon. You can leave payment via cash or check (made out to We Leash The Hounds) on the last day of the week that we will see your dog(s).
Invoices can be made up upon request. Invoices will be sent via email and are due within one week of receipt. If your invoice balance remains unpaid beyond this period you may be subject to a service suspension.
For the safety of our other clients, we require that all dogs we work with be fully vaccinated against rabies, bordetella, parvovirus and distemper. These illnesses are highly communicable and can pose a significant threat to our other clients, particularly puppies and senior dogs.
