As always, we’re highlighting 5 local businesses every week that you can support as we all slowly adjust to the times.
Bio + how to support: Paw Mania is a small business in Jersey City serving those of Hudson County. We have been up and running for the past 5 years providing services such as dog walking, doggie day care, doggie hotel, pet taxi, check-ins and our recently added doggie play groups! Our boarding is all cage free and includes a gated backyard with a huge pool for some added fun while the pawrents are away on vacation. We are passionate about our fur babies and enjoy making them feel comfortable in our home.
The biggest way to support us right now is by purchasing a gift card that is available to use at a later time with no expiration. As an added bonus for those who see this post, we are offering 15% off a service of their choice (excludes pet taxi).

In-Home Pediatric PT of NJ
Bio + how to support:
Dr. Giselle M Tadros, founder of In-Home Pediatric PT of NJ (@inhomepediatricpt) and Milk Matters PT(@milkmatterspt), has been helping babies and families in her community for over 20 years. She is a voice for babies, an advocate for parents and caregivers, and an activist for educating and empowering parents to help their children through movement and active play!
Her greatest gift is translating a baby or child’s symptoms and behaviors into understanding, so you can take action! By addressing the underlying causes of symptoms, Giselle helps parents make small effective changes to see rapid improvements.
In addition to traditional physical therapy, where we work with children who may have specific physical challenges such as gross motor delays, flat head plagiocephaly, torticollis, toe walking, neuromuscular conditions etc, Giselle also specializes in working with infants who have lip and tongue ties. She helps teach them efficient feeding with correct techniques through gentle and fun exercise protocols.
Dr. Giselle Tadros was the Health winner in NJ Magazine’s Mompreneur of the Year contest in 2020 and has been voted as New Jersey’s Favorite Kids’ Docs by parents in 2019.
Dr. Tadros founded this concierge physical therapy service that treats babies in the comfort of their own home. “I started this business because I recognized the need for more convenience for parents working long hours, with children at home that don’t want to be bringing them to germy hospitals and public waiting rooms. We try to make life easy for the modern busy parent by providing parents with tools to boost your child’s development. Our unique service is that we come to YOU, when you want, at a convenient time for your family. I also offer sessions in my office.”
Where to find them: We love when parents take videos and post them and tag us (@inhomepediatricpt) so we can provide tools to more and more families. Of course, leaving a positive review on Google or Yelp, schedule an appointment or vote us as your favorite NJ Kids Doc is a great way to show support!
