About Gustav

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a 28 year old professional living on the Upper West Side in New York. I work in Advertising and my partner is in Hotel Management. Our apartment is clean, has high ceilings and big windows facing the street. It's located 2 blocks from Central Park and 2 blocks from Riverside Park. It could not be more ideal for a dog! We do not currently have a dog of our own but I grew up with dogs all my life so I definitely have the required and necessary experience. My partner and I are flexible to do a meet n greet prior to make sure you later feel comfortable leaving your lovely dog with us during the time you're away. Hope to speak to you soon!

As always, we had a great vacation not worrying about our pups at all thanks to Gustav!
Our dachsies had a great time with Gustav. They got lots of lap, couch, and even bed time and the pictures made me so happy to see. He was also very flexible about drop off and pick up times, which we really needed because the traffic was completely out of our control. In the bad old days when we used to board them at the vet they raced to the car to get out of there. This weekend they were happy to see us but in no particular rush to go home. Success! We will definitely go with Gustav again.
Gustav was great with both of my dogs. He gave lots of updates and my girls were happy as could be when I got home. We will definitely use him again.
Gustav always takes great care of my dog Hoya. He sends pics and updates each day to let me know how things are going. He takes Hoya to the park which is a huge plus. Hoya loves staying with him and always comes home really happy.
Gustav did an awesome job caring for my dog Penelope! He was so kind and Penelope warmed up to him right away. He did a great job responding quickly to any questions I had, and while we were away he updated us and sent pictures every day. I highly recommend him!
Leika is always so relaxed and happy when she stays with Gustav. Knowing she's in such good hands lets us enjoy ourselves when we travel without her!
Love Gustav! Always happy to leave Lola with him.
Gustav took great care of Louie while we were away. He sent pictures and updates, so I knew he was doing well. Louie seemed very happy when I came to pick him up!
Gustav is so wonderful, we wouldn't think of having Leika stay with anyone else!
Gustav C.his partner are a lovely couple who took terrific care of Raleigh for a week over the holidays. Raleigh has some special needs and we could not be more comfortable knowing that he was in Gustav's care. He got ample walks in addition tlc and attention. It was apparent from the photos we received (and his attachment to the place!) that he was comfortable, happy and well taken care of. We were delighted with our experience and would highly recommend Gustav for boarding and care.
Leika's reactions when I dropped her off and picked her up said everything about how comfortable she is staying with Gustav. I'm so grateful that Leika and I found Gustav!
We LOVE Gustav and Jay. They take such good care of our Lola. We continually use them and each time we are happier and happier.
Leika passed out on the floor after getting home from her stay with Gustav. All of that walking in the park made her a tired, happy dog! Knowing that she was safe and content with Gustav allowed me to have a relaxed, happy trip. Leika and I look forward to many more future stays with Gustav.
We love Gustav and Jay and so does Lola. Always a great experience having Lola stay with them.
Gustav was awesome as always!
O'Mallie had another great vacation with Gustav! Thanks for the wonderful care!!
Gustav took such wonderful care of our dog that we think she was a bit sad to come home! He made her right at home and took her on lots of long walks. He kept us posted with photos, which helped ease our minds. This was our first time leaving our recent adoptee, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. We were worried about separation anxiety, but Gustav and his partner managed things perfectly. Now that we've found Gustav, we know that our dog will be comfortable and safe during our future travels.
Gustav took very good care of my dog for the second time. I expect to book with Gustav again.
O'Mallie had a wonderful stay with Gustav. My dog provides some extra care because he is a senior, and Gustav was completely up to the challenge. I received wonderful photos and updates throughout my trip. A very caring and clean environment that helped put my mind at ease so I could enjoy my vacation. Highly Recommend!
Gustav was great! He took great care of our English Bulldog Lola. Lola stayed for 5 days and I felt that she was in good hands the entire time. I would absolutely recommend him, and use him again!
Gustav took great care of my dog and sent lots of nice pictures. Highly recommend.
Gustav came through for us in a pinch this past weekend! Our dog Rosie has stayed with him once before ( and loved him) and he was able to watch her again for us with only a week's notice. He is so kind and generous. I know Rosie is being taken care of the way we would take care of her, which makes leaving her a little easier. Thank you so much Gustav for giving us peace-of-mind while we are away!
Gustov was a terrific host for Lulu. Lulu took an instant liking to Gustov, no doubt because she recognized Gustov's passion for and love of dogs. He has a well-appointed apartment on a beautiful block near the park so even small dogs have easy access to the park. Gustov provided regular updates and photos and followed the instructions for Lulu's care closely. I highly recommend Gustov.
Gustav was so accommodating and helpful. His apartment on the UWS is spotless and close to Central Park. He took excellent care of our dog, Rosie, and sent us pictures and updates on how she was doing. I have never felt so at ease leaving Rosie to go on vacation as I did with Gustav!
Gustav and his partner were so wonderful when Sawyer stayed with them this past weekend! They loved having my rambunctious boy and took great care of him. Gustav was very communicative and kept me informed of how Sawyer was doing. I will definitely have Sawyer stay with them again one day! Thank you!
Gustav took care of my little girl for almost a week and was amazing! My little girl can be shy but immediately bonded with Gustav. He loves dogs and she could tell. He took great care of her and gave me daily updates and photos. I could see that she was lounging curled up on his lap after the first day. I couldn't have felt more assured that my dog was in good hands. Thank you!
