About Alison

I'm actually leaving New York for a few months starting 2/19/13 so I'm not accepting any new clients for the time being--I've hidden my profile for now but some people are finding me anyway!

I love dogs and if I didn't travel so frequently, I would definitely have one of my own! I spent many years taking care of my college roommate's beloved pug--she and her family take long trips every year--but he passed away last year and I miss him terribly. I've also taken care of an English bulldog from DUMBO and a bicoastal rat terrier mix. I don't have any outdoor space of my own but I'm close to two dog runs, one of which--Washington Square--has a small-dog-only area.

Newman was very well taken care of by Alison. She was able to take him on short notice and coordinate with my roommate. She saved the day!
Alison was great, and I will use her again. Not only was she was accommodating, but as a first time user of DogVacay she was reassuring and made the process easy. She is a great choice, if she is available.
I was very thankful to find Alison had availability for Thanksgiving week when my usual dog sitter had to cancel. She responded very quick to my inquiries and helped make my first dog vacay experience simple and pleasant. Roxy felt right at home with Allison and I think she'd be happy to go back.
We were so grateful to have found Alison to watch our pug this past weekend!! We had never used an online site before, so at first we were somewhat nervous about how this experience would be. Alison alleviated our anxiety immediately; she responded to our request within minutes of my contacting her, was incredibly accommodating, and very good with our dog. Alison was also very flexible with our timing; we had a crazy flight schedule and a delayed flight on the way home, and she took care of our pug during that extra time without stress. We absolutely recommend Alison and would ask her to take care of our pug again any time!
Alison took such great care of our dog, Mowgli, while we were away for a long weekend. He immediately warmed up to her, and she took quickly to all of his behavioral quirks (I basically left her a laundry list of them). She also checked back in with me after his stay to make sure all was well. All in all, she's super attentive and true dog lover; a great sitter.
Alison was a very friendly, responsive host - we felt very comfortable
leaving our dog with her and would definitely use her again. Alison took
our dog to the park daily, sent photos and text updates. In our initial
meeting she asked plenty of questions and seemed genuinely very interested
in making sure our dog would be comfortable during his stay. This was my
first time using DogVacay, and I was very pleased with the result.
Alison did a great job caring for our frenchie Rocco. He came back clean and happy. Alison is really sweet, would love her to care for Rocco again.
