That’s how urban dog walking goes sometimes. Four steps smell the sidewalk, another few steps and get a whiff of a tree. It happens regardless of the number. I doubt their owners are unaware of the pack walk concept. Some purposely choose a dog walker who does pack walks.

You say the dog walker was mistreating them but you don’t describe exactly how except for the number of steps which I can not see a NJSPCA officer considering that maltreatment. On the other hand, if they are being maltreated you should report.


PS on Way Too Many dogs-
I meant to add that this was on 3rd st and Sinatra. It really is a safety concern for humans and dogs as well. Also, i don’t mean to malign the woman walking the dogs. Maybe someone called in sick and it was up to her to handle it, but not that many at once. It may happen more often than you think and it is not what you pay so dearly for. Didn’t have my phone or would have snapped a photo. Other people were commenting about to each other all around me also.


Dog-Walker Mis-Treatment on Riverfront
I feel it’s my civic duty to let other dog-owners know that your pet may be suffering some mis-treatment when you entrust them to a dog-walker and you may not be getting what you paid for. Case in point. I witnessed, on Friday 7/11 about 2:30pm, a woman who was walking 20 plus dogs and she could not handle them. I recall a standard black poodle, a weimeraner, white & beige king charles type spaniel and one poor dog named “Bruce” that she was yelling at. It could never be considered a “walk”, She could take about 4 steps and then stop, 4 steps and then stop so as they would not get tangled. i think there were 23-24 dogs, all sizes and she kept giving them treats from her fanny pack to keep them in-line I guess. How pathetic that you think your dog is getting a walk!! She was dressed in gray capri-pants, gray T-shirt, blonded hair pulled up in bun and in late 40’s I would guess.
Really an unfair practice to owners and dogs !!
