I highly recommend ESP Pets.

We use Evan and his company for cat sitting for our two cats every time we go out of town. One cat requires medication 3x per day, and Evan and his team have been great about communicating if there are ever any issues. I love the updates after each visit, especially when we are on a long trip! I highly recommend ESP Pets.

ESP has made life all the better for our family

Simply can’t say enough good things about Evan and the team at ESP Pet Specialists. Each time my wife and I come back from our travels, the kitties seem happy, rested and content. ESP constantly goes above and beyond, is wildly reliable, completely trustworthy, and clearly cares about the animals it looks after. Five tars all the way. ESP has made life all the better for our family. Bravo!

-Sumner Jacobs

Definitely recommend.

Great company, great people. ESP Pet Specialists (Evan, Cindy, and others) have been walking my dog daily, M-F, for a couple of years, since I work a full-time job. They are reliable, responsible, and reasonable – and they also really love animals. They not only walk my dog, but they also seem to genuinely like and care about her. Also, from a practical perspective, their scheduling/billing website is great for keeping track of all the walks, and I love the daily pictures. Definitely recommend.

this is the place to call!

We have been using ESP Pet Specialists for 3 years and couldn’t be happier! Evan and his team are reliable and caring and have made traveling a worry free experience for us. We enjoy receiving pet journals, including pictures of our cats, while we are away to ease our minds that our kitties are doing well. If you need caring people to help with your pets, this is the place to call!

I Love ESP PETS!!!

They are 100% reliable and work hard to keep everything in order. Evan is loved by my puppy. Chloe will flat out ignore me when Evan comes to walk and play with her. I imagine those puppy kisses mean the most. Keep up the great work!

Evan and his team were just fantastic !

Evan and his team were just fantastic. Laura was the team member who walked our 1 year old golden retriever Calvin most frequently – we can’t say enough great things about her. Always on time, caring, respectful – and most of all treated Calvin like her own. We absolutely loved the daily messages and pictures after the walks. Calvin clearly loved his walks as well – he would watch longingly through the window every day as Laura left. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a reliable dog walker. We were very sad to leave ESP – it was only because we moved out of the service territory, otherwise we would still be with them!

I never ever have to worry!

I can’t say enough positive things about ESP Pet Specialists! My two dogs have special needs, they are blind and I couldn’t be happier with the level of service and care they provide. ESP is compassionate, extremely reliable and trustworthy. I never ever have to worry which was so important to me when looking for a dog walker. Thank you Evan for taking such great care of them while I am at work. Would definitely recommend!

Reliable, trustworthy, flexible!

We have been using Evan at ESP Pets for a few years. He is reliable, trustworthy, flexible and most of all our dog Stella loves him. I would highly recommend his company.

Evan and Laura walk Winston. They send a report of your pet’s visit and photos which is extremely helpful. Highly recommend.

If you need a good cat sitter, call Evan at ESP!!!

I have just started using ESP Pet Specialists and they are really good! My 16-year-old cat has really taken to Louise and that rarely happens! I get a report and pictures after each visit and Amber is taking her meds with no problem! If you need a good cat sitter, call Evan at ESP!!! He really has a great business!

I love getting updates and photos!

ESP Pet is great! I highly recommend to anyone looking for a dog sitter. Brittany has been walking my dog, Nick, everyday for over 4 months now while I’m at work. I love getting her updates and photos of Nick after their walks!

Nick for Melissa WO

I truly cannot recommend this company enough!

It can be a scary thing leaving a young puppy alone while away at work. With ESP Pets, you definitely don’t have to feel that way! Evan is so knowledgeable about pet care and is always quick to answer any questions. He came over to meet Brie and to make sure that we all felt comfortable before her first walk.

I have been using ESP Pet Specialists for daily walks of my French Bulldog, Brie for over 2 years now. Evan has been so wonderful to work with and Brie has truly built a lifelong bond with her walker, Patty. We love getting daily walk updates with pictures. I truly cannot recommend this company enough!

Very Organized Operation!

Highly recommend! Evan takes great care of our German Shepherd Charlie. A very organized operation that allows you to customize your walks and makes sure your dog’s specific needs are taken care of.

Evan and Brittany are truly amazing!

My puppy Bruno is a brand new addition to our family and we were super nervous about him adjusting and getting all of the love and care he needs when we’re at work . Evan is amazing so knowledgable about dogs and so loving to our Bruno he really cares about his clients . He went above and beyond to help us with our transition and is even giving us advice and pointers for our furbabe ! We would never trust anyone else with our pup we feel really safe with Evan and Brittany and KNOW that our puppy is getting proper TLC & socialization . We are so grateful for everything ESP is doing for us. The journal entries with pics and letting us know how he was during his time with Evan and Brittany are awesome too because we worry a lot and they always make sure he is safe, taken care of , and given lots of love . I would HIGHLY recommend them TO EVERYONE with any fur baby of any age any breed . They really are the best .

Will definitely recommend and use again.

Evan and Cindy, thank you for taking care of our kids for 8 days. Your updates and pictures made us relax.

I highly recommend ESP Pet Specialists as they’ve taken away any anxiety we’ve had in the past and replaced it with peace of mind.

My husband and I moved to the WO area having anxiety about finding someone we could trust to take care of our dogs and to let into our new home. In addition, owning two pitbulls has made this task even more challenging in the past due to the stigma associated with the breed. Having said that, ESP Pet Specialists is by far the best service we have ever used. Evan is stellar with our dogs, and his genuine care for them shows. During our first meeting, I was able to instantly tell that he is very experienced, knowing how to approach our dogs and put them at ease. He listened thoroughly about each of their needs, as our dogs have very different personalities and unlike most, they take their time to trust people, especially in a new home they were just getting settled into. I can confidently say, five months later, that Evan has gained their trust and has done an amazing job caring for them every week. He has also been very flexible when we’ve been in a bind and are unable to come home in time to take care of our dogs. We’ve even had him pet sit for an entire weekend, and were very pleased to come home to happy dogs without any issues. I also have to mention the high level of professionalism as well as the ease of use of their online portal, which makes booking/logistics/payments easy and foolproof. You can adjust changes in the schedule online, as well as leave instructions if any changes occur to the routine. I would also mention that each visit is accompanied by a pet journal to review the time he was there and to point out if anything out of the ordinary occurred. You can tell that Evan doesn’t just treat our animals as a business, but that he genuinely cares about their wellbeing. I highly recommend ESP Pet Specialists as they’ve taken away any anxiety we’ve had in the past and replaced it with peace of mind.

ESP PETS is my saving grace!

I cannot speak highly enough. I’m in my final year of med school and doing surgery. Thus, my schedule is terrible AND unpredictable. ESP PETS is my saving grace as a single working mother (to a sweet 4-legged-baby.) With Wag you never know who is entering your home. With ESP I know it’s the same trusted walker(s) all the time. I love knowing my doggie-dog has another human friend or two when I am away!

Highly recommend to anyone looking for a pet service.

As a first-time pet owner, we were very scared to leave our new puppy with anyone. Evan and his team put our minds at ease immediately. They came over to play with our new baby before caring for him daily. Bachi (our puppy) is now cared for daily by ESP Pets and we love them. Jen, our daily walker, is kind, reliable, considerate and loves taking Bachi for walks! ESP Pets is flexible and answers any questions we may have immediately!

I would highly recommend their services to anyone who is looking for people who are competent, cost-effective, and caring.

I have been using ESP Pet Specialists for several years now and have been extremely satisfied with their service. They are great with the dogs (we have two good size dogs who go crazy when they arrive ?, are completely reliable, and have high integrity. I especially appreciate their flexibility when I have an unexpected schedule change and I need coverage. They have never missed a service in the years I have known them.

I know my two cats always get the best care with ESP pet specialists when we’re away.

We travel a lot and I know my two cats always get the best care with ESP pet specialists when we’re away. I never wanted to put my cats in a boarding kennel/cattery so the service ESP pet specialists offer is perfect! They come into our house as often as we request to make sure our kitties are doing ok. They even send us a pet journal after each visit, sometimes with photos so we can see for ourselves they’re doing ok. The prices are very affordable too. Would highly recommend!!!

I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!

I was desperately trying to find an organization to come to my home to take care of my cat while my husband and I were planning a weekend getaway. We had tried the vet and animal hospitals in the past but had horrible experiences. Zeus (my cat) would not eat the entire time we were gone and once it was for 5 days. By chance, I happened to find ESP Pet Specialists on-line and have been so happy ever since. Evan came to our apartment to meet Zeus prior to us leaving for our trip. My cat is not overly friendly to people he has never met but he went right up to Evan. This put my mind at ease immediately. Evan has been available on short notice, he brings our mail in, he sends photos and updates so I can relax while I am away. I cannot say enough good things about Evan or this organization. I would “highly” recommend them to anyone!

Thank You Again

Dear Evan,
I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all that you do for our dog, Denny Crane.  You are extremely reliable, concerned and dedicated to him.
He is lucky to have the ESP pet specialists as part of his family!!

I am so happy to have found ESP Pet Specialists!

Evan offers great, reliable service allowing me to be certain my cats are well cared for while I’m away. I have been using this service for 2 years and highly recommend!

We have every confidence in you guys and whenever a friend mentions dog walking or pet sitting I have no hesitation in recommending you. And Mac recommends you too!

Just wanted to thank you, Patty,  and everyone at ESP Pets for everything that you do for our dog MacTavish. Since he’s gotten older we’ve been worried about leaving him at home by himself all day. Our dog is our family so it’s wonderful to know that we can count on someone to be there to take him for a walk, get some “petting time” in, and just make sure that he’s doing OK.  I particularly like being able to see the details of what went on during his walk as soon as it happens (and to see pictures too!)

You really go above and beyond. Whether it’s bringing in packages from the front door or coaxing the dog out in the rain. Mac absolutely does not like the rain; but Patty puts his raincoat on, makes sure he does his business, and always dries him off once inside. One time she actually carried him home under her umbrella!

We have trusted Evan and his team to walk and sit our 2 dogs for months now and they have done an excellent job.

Having 2 large Huskies, our dogs can be tough to manage. Evan and team have been extremely patient and flexible with their specific needs and we fully trust them when it comes to our dogs’ well being. The dogs have really bonded to them as well.

We would highly recommend ESP Pet Specialists to anyone with a pet!

My husband and I found ESP Pets by complete chance on the internet but now we believe it was fate! Evan and his team are professional, reliable and their love for animals shines through their work. They also have an amazing website for clients and the highlight of my day is receiving my personalized report on how my dog is doing – sometimes with pictures!

Evan is a exactly what we were looking for!

Evan is an extremely reliable, affordable dog walker that our dog absolutely adores! We have been very happy with ESP PET SPECIALISTS and recommend them to all of our neighbors. It’s great to have someone you can trust to care for your animal as if they are their own pet!

Evan Perlman is the most professional, reliable dog walker I have ever had.

Most importantly, I know that he takes wonderful care of my dog Honey. I also know that if any emergency took place at my home he would contact me immediately and know how to handle it. How lucky I am to have been introduced to Evan!!

I feel extremely fortunate to have found Evan.

I began using his services in February 2015 when my dog walker at the time had to leave the country for 2 months. I found Evan online, met him, trusted him immediately and hired him on the spot. Not only is he extremely reliable and always there when I need him, but he is an experienced dog trainer. My dog can be a bit unpredictable at times but because of Evan’s training, I never have to worry about his interactions with Truman. Evan provides Truman his daily exercise of about a mile per day. I’m very happy I found him and would recommend him to everyone.

BTW, when my original dog walker returned, I decided to stick with Evan!

Truman Barb W Caldwell

Evan was exactly what we were looking for in a dog walker.

He is responsible, professional, and goes out of his way to make sure our dog Chief is taken care of, any time of the day. Our dog was always scared of everything. After seeing how comfortable Chief has become with Evan, we would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

We feel very lucky to have you!

Evan has been caring and patient with our Chase, who was initially a little slow to warm up, since day one.
I hear too many stories of dog walkers who care for the dog and leave in 10 minutes and the owners only finding out through a neighbor. We are very fortunate to have him care for Chase when we are not home.
If you need additional referrals, feel free to use me as a reference. Thanks!

It is great to know such a good, trustworthy resource is available to us when we need to leave the dogs at home.

Thanks so much to ESP PET SPECIALISTS for taking great care of “the boys”. They both seemed to thrive well during our absence. I especially loved the picture that was sent with the journal as it looks as though Bo is smiling :).
As you learned, Riley is especially tentative with new experiences, it is very assuring to know that he gained confidence so quickly. This is a testament to ESP PETS and the patience you and your team have with animals. I would be happy to be a reference if any potential client requires one!

Cedar Grove, NJ

Evan has been extremely responsible since day one.

Prior to Evan I was able to come home during lunch to let the pups out, but both myself & my partner started new jobs in the beginning of 2015. We had to change our routine fast & Evan had recently started his new business, ESP Pets.We decided to give Evan the opportunity to come walk the pups 3x a week. Since that day, we have never been disappointed with the work ethic of Evan; he is responsible, easy to contact, honest and respectful. We trust Evan completely with our pups & we are truly lucky to have found him to help us with Nahla and Duke.

Evan is Phenomenal!

We came home from a week away and our pets were calm, well taken care of and of course – happy to see us. We knew that Evan had taken care of our pets just like he does his own and with that knowledge, we were able to enjoy our vacation. Thank you, Evan. It is reassuring to know we can call upon you whenever we travel.

Livingston, NJ

Our Experience with ESP was Just Perfect!!

We left Evan in charge of our two Spanish Water Dogs for nearly a week, while we were across the country. He sent multiple reports every day (along with pictures), and it was all very comforting and reassuring.Our girls seemed perfectly content when we got home, and all was calm and in order. Evan did everything that he said he would do, and with dedication and serious attention, and it made our trip peaceful and completely enjoyable. Use them. Don’t even think twice. We will call them first and only when the needs come up again. Terrific to work with, and a true pleasure.

South Orange, NJ

My Experience with ESP PETS has been Excellent!

Evan has been walking our dog Kona for about six months now. My husband and I both work all day, and knowing that she’s in good hands is such a weight lifted. He sends us updates every day, sometimes with pictures of her and sometimes with a map of their walking route. It’s comforting to know how she’s doing and that she’s in such great hands. We have even had Evan watch her overnight. She loves him!

I strongly recommend them for your pet care needs.

ESP is a great, locally owned and operated business. Evan and his team have cared for our Great Danes nearly their entire lives. ESP provides professional, reliable and high-quality pet care services and I strongly recommend them for your pet care needs.

-John Rubino

Definitely recommend for anyone who needs pet care!

These guys are great! Evan has been walking my Shiba for a little while now and she loves him. Evan is flexible and very reliable, and generally does a great job. Definitely recommend for anyone who needs pet care!


Definitely recommend ESP Pet Specialists for any dog walking needs!

Evan and his team have been amazing to work with. He is not only experienced and professional, but I can tell he has a lot of love and passion for animals and his business. I have full trust in him and his team to take care of my dog and know she’s in the right hands for everyday walks AND when I’m on vacation. He also listens and provides advice on any questions I may have.

Definitely recommend ESP Pet Specialists for any dog walking needs!

-Barrie S

ESP Pets gives us great peace of mind and we couldn’t be happier!!!

If I could give more than 5 starts I would! I am so thrilled to have found a reliable and trustworthy pet service! Evan and his team go above and beyond taking care of our pups. They spend extra time making sure they have fresh water, exercise and extra cuddle time. They will even go the extra mile to send us photos/videos of our pups playing. ESP Pets gives us great peace of mind and we couldn’t be happier!!!

-Rebecca Lascari

rate is great!

I feel so much more at ease knowing my doggos are getting a daily walk with Evan. I can tell they are happy too! Love the notes and photos I get after every walk. And the rate is great!

-Megan Bauducco

HIGHLY recommend!

Evan and his team are amazing!! They always take such wonderful care of my dog Remi. Professional, knowledgeable, caring. I can’t say enough wonderful things.
I wouldn’t trust anyone else to care for her now that I have experienced this high level of care. HIGHLY recommend!

-juliana stravato

Give them a try as they really know what they’re doing!

ESP has been great taking care of my cat when I leave town. They send updates with each visit and even a picture. They are real pros and enjoy what they’re doing. They communicate fully about everything that is going on. If there is a problem, they address it. Give them a try as they really know what they’re doing!

-LB Stanley

I highly recommend ESP Pet Specialists as a top notch dog walking service.

ESP Pet Specialists is an incredibly reliable and consistent dog walking service that cares for my dog as if it were their own. I work evenings and they have been there for my dog every time I’ve needed them. Plus they send an email after every dog walking service with updates on what happened on the walk and cute photos from time to time. I highly recommend ESP Pet Specialists as a top notch dog walking service.

-Jennifer Clarke

It is super easy to organize

Evan and his team at ESP Pets have been so amazing for our family. They are super reliable, caring and always responsive. Our dog Buster loves his walks with his walker Patricia and they even take pictures/post a little journal of walks. We have also used them for boarding, and it is so comforting to know Buster is staying in an actual home (not a kennel) with familiar faces. You can order/plan walks online and it is super easy to organize. Cannot recommend enough!

-Caroline Watt

If you need a pet sitter, would totally recommend ESP!

The ESP team is awesome! They are incredibly reliable, helpful and they care for my very precious babies!! Consistent, professional and proactive. They send pics as well so you can see how your pets are doing while you are out. You get updates with each visit too! It’s great!!! If you need a pet sitter, would totally recommend ESP!

-Sue Truitt

Huge praise for ESP!!

I should start by saying that our dog, Rebel, is not easy lol. He is terrified of people. We recently moved to NJ from Philly and were dreading the “dog walker search”. Back in Philly we had tried 3 different walkers before giving up when they could not get him to go out…ever. Not once. Like I said, Rebel is not easy. Long story short, Evan came to our house almost every day for over a month (even while we were home) so that Rebel could get used to him. The key with Rebel is to be confident and most importantly, PATIENT. Last week Rebel went on his first walks with a dog walker (Evan) EVER, and now gets excited when Evan comes over. As a dog parent who loves their dog more than anything, this is the biggest relief and eliminated so much stress for us. Huge praise for ESP!!

-Valerie DiBiaggio

Evan and Brittany are fantastic!!!

We started using ESP Pet Specialist in anticipation of going back to work full time. We use them 3 times a week consistently and sometimes on the weekend too. This is the first time we’ve used this type of service and couldn’t be more pleased. Not only does our pup look forward to her walks, but our peace of mind knowing that she’s in good hands is invaluable. I also love getting pics of my pup with journal entries while away from home. I highly recommend ESP Pets!!! Evan and Brittany are fantastic!!!

-Cosmo Frattura

I am so glad we found you!

I just had my first pet sitting experience with ESP Pet Specialists, and I have only the highest praise! I was away for a week out of town and I was nervous about leaving my 3 cats. After the first visit report from Evan, I immediately felt secure that my girls were in good hands. Every day I received a report and photos and my cats all seemed happy and comfortable. All the details were being handled just as I had requested, and I felt very safe being away from home. Evan even watered my plants! I am so grateful and it is such a good feeling to know that if I have to go out of town my cats are going to be well taken care of while I am gone. Thank you, again, Evan! I am so glad we found you!


highly recommend!

Evan and the other dog walkers have been amazing to my greyhound! Always on time with flexible scheduling and most importantly always treating my dog with love! There is also a little “report card” that is sent to you at the end with pictures which I always look forward to reading when I’m missing my dog at work, highly recommend!


Highly recommend his service!

So happy to have found Evan to take care of our cats when we’re away. He’s dependable and caring, and provides timely updates after his visits. Highly recommend his service!

-Becky Aquilina

Walks are always well documented.

Enjoy working Evan and entire ESP team. Christine does a great job walking our 13yr old black lab. Walks are always well documented. Love the pics.

-Larry Stalica

Evan is very friendly and highly professional.

Evan is fantastic and I would highly recommend his service! We went away for a week and I needed someone to take care my two Guinea pigs daily. He responded quickly to my email and even arranged a pre visit. The rate is very reasonable. He has an online booking system which is easy to use. When we were away, we texted each other for questions and any urgent request. Evan is very friendly and highly professional. We will certainly use him again.

-david wang

ESP has been super responsive!

ESP has been super responsive! I had a night before request that was filled and I really appreciate that. I try not to make that a practice, but I’m thrilled they could do it.
