Aunt Darlene's was
established in 2003 in East Brunswick, NJ as a pet sitting & dog walking
service. In December of 2004 my husband and I bought a house in Old
Bridge, NJ with my uncle who was 80 years old, alone and in need of some help
with his daily needs. We bought a mother-daughter home, my uncle lived
on the first floor and we lived up stairs. My uncle passed away in 2006 and
the first floor remained unused for over a year.
In Fall of 2007 my husband and I
decided that due to the fact that we weren't using the first floor at all
anymore and because of the numerous requests that we were getting to
board dogs at our home, that it was time to add in-home, cage-free dog
boarding to the services that we offer. In the first 2 years of cage-free, in-home
dog boarding we boarded more than 100 different dogs and business has been
growing rapidly ever since. Some dogs have stayed with us as many as forty times
and we continue to add new clients every year.
2014 and business is better than ever. We get calls for dog boarding
throughout the year, but during certain times of the year we get an overwhelming
amount of phone and email requests to board dogs from people who are just not comfortable
leaving their dogs at home, or in a kennel for several days
when they go away. During the Summer we get so many calls that we have to turn down a lot more
people than we are able to help. We are often booked for several weeks in
advance from June to September and Holiday weeks are always booked several weeks

Here's Why you should consider joining Aunt Darlene's guest homes network.
Boarding dogs in your home is a great way to make money, but without the
experience of running an in-home dog boarding business yourself, it's very
difficult to teach someone else to do what you've never done. Even
though we had numerous requests to board dogs in our home for more than three
years, we felt it was a good idea to wait until we were confident enough in our experience and abilities
to be sure we knew what we were doing. We learned an enormous amount of
new things about dogs in those three years that you can't learn by watching the
Animal Planet, or just by being a pet owner. Our goal is to be the best at
what we do and only to work with people that we would trust to watch our dogs
while we're away. Our clients pets and our reputation mean everything to
We started our pet sitting & dog walking business in 2003 because it was our passion to work
It's our true love for animals, NOT the money
that was our motivation to start our business, and it shows. People can tell
the difference when they use our services. Read our
search for our reviews online and see what our
clients have to say about us. Money doesn't buy testimonials and reviews like ours.
Great, caring service makes people want to write such nice things about us.
We also believe good business means being extremely fair with our clients, our pet
sitters and our guest home owners. When you are fair and treat other people
fairly, they do the same in return and success follows. We are the #1
rated pet boarding service on Angie's List in the NYC tri-sate area.
Due to our success and well established Internet presence we can supply a
somewhat steady flow of
dogs (customers) for you to board and we
don't take 1/2 of your profit, You
keep a full 65% of the boarding fees.
Our share is 35% which covers advertising, training, management, website fees and customer
