About Diana

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I DO NOT BOARD IN MY HOME.
I am offering dog sitting in YOUR home.

***ALSO, please let me know what dates you need your sit for and what part of town you live in, in the initial inquiry.
So I can expedite the conversation and let you know immediately if it is possible. ;-)

I an actress living in NYC. The best city ever!!
I am in classes and I also babysit.
I have dog sat before when I lived in LA. I loved being around all the fun little personalities that pets can have. It always brought a smile to my face. I am very organized and super tidy. I am good with schedules and I like to actually interact with the dogs while I am staying with them.

Diana was a great communicator from the very start. She took care of our two dogs and two cats with ease. She also was respectful of our belongings and apartment. She even went so far as to put the linens she used into the laundry after her last night of using them. I would recommend her again as she is responsible and also very affordable.

Diana was AWESOME. Kept me totally up to date throughout my trip with great pics, messages, and videos. She's friendly, responsible, and a true dog lover. I felt completely comfortable leaving my best friend in her care and would certainly do so again!

Diana is so wonderful wig our dogs. We've used her multiple times and she's just as great and informative as the last time.
I just move to New York and I was very anxious since it was the first time leaving my doggies with a sitter. Diana was truly amazing. Very caring, sweet and attentive and both Sasha (The Diva) and John John love her. She is responsible, detailed and service oriented and took care of my babies as it they were her own.

Diana did a wonderful job taking care of our senior dog Expo. She was very patient with our 15 year old dauchsund. Diana is very responsive and caring and We plan to turn to her on any future doggie stitting get needs.
We are repeat customers with Diana and she continues to exceed all our expectations!
I couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience.
Diana stayed in our apartment, providing stability to my dog, which was a considerable worry to me since I wasn't sure how he would adjust to a stranger's home or the presence of another dog.
She kept me updated, left the apartment in perfect order, met us twice before she actually arrived to sit with Henry.
She sent lots of updates via the Dog Vacay site as well as through texts, so I saw that Henry was lounging comfortably---as usual.
Henry needs daily meds and Diana followed instructions to a T.
I highly recommend her, and so does Henry!

Absolutely fantastic! Sent pics of all my animals and updated me daily. Highly recommend!
Thank you, Diana! Our two pups are super seniors, 15 and 16 years old, so it's especially hard to leave them these days. With all relatives and close friends unavailable to watch them, we were forced to seek a pet sitter for the first time. We were traveling internationally and being so far away from them at such a fragile age of life was worrisome, but Diana made leaving them so much easier! For two weeks, she stayed in our apartment and diligently catered to our super seniors and sent frequent photo and text updates. One of our pups requires oral medication and eye drops twice a day and Diana had no problems administering both to our dog. All pet parents to know the feeling, you naturally worry when leaving your beloved, even in the best of hands. Diana never once made me feel silly for worrying and always kindly understood and reassured--I much appreciated that attitude. She equally cared for our two pups AND their human's state of mind. :)

Diana was absolutely amazing!!! My brother recommended her after using her a couple of times and I couldn't be happier with her stay. My dogs are old and so they have some medications and specific instructions regarding stairs, teeth brushing, etc. and Diana did it all!!! I have already passed her name along to other people. A+++

Diana was fantastic. She watched my dog and two cats while I was out of town, which took a huge load off my mind. She sent regular updates, and my apartment was in perfect condition when I returned. I would trust her with my dog/cats/apartment anytime!

Diana was wonderful. She sent updates with photos, and seemed to do great with the dogs. The dogs seemed very happy and worn out when we got back, which was perfect. We would book her again in a second. Very happy with our experience!
Diana was fantastic. She was available for a long stay on short notice (!!), and our lab, Gunner, loved her! She was very attentive, texting us if there was an issue or if she had any questions, and uploaded photos of Gunner every day. She left our apartment in immaculate condition, even going so far as to put the sheets in the wash! We will absolutely be using Diana again, and cannot recommend her enough.

Diana was a fantastic host in every respect for four days with our Islay: she was quick to respond and scheduled a meet-and-greet quickly. She is lovely in person and answered all of our questions, even the silly first-time DogVacay basic ones. She was willing to work with Islay on her leash reactivity training on walks--no small ask! She sent us photos and texts while we were away, which gave us peace of mind that Islay was happy and well cared-for in her hands. And she left our house in spotless condition! I would definitely recommend Diana to any pet parent, and judging by the photos we received of their epic snuggling, Islay would too!! We would happily welcome Diana into our home the next time we are out of town.

Diana was great, sent pics, communicated open - everything you want when someone it taking care of your pups!
Diana was great. We had serious misgivings about using DogVacay as we didn't want to trust our dog with a stranger. Diana met with us twice before she stayed with our dog and was in consistent contact with us until we left. Shortly after we left, our dog big ill and left a number of messes for Diana. She handled everything well and nursed our dog back to health. We were on our Honeymoon and Diana was conscious to not overburden us with any problems and seemed to handle everything quite well. We'd be happy to have her watch our dog again.

I met Diana 3 days before leaving for a one week trip. I felt like I could trust her and I was right . She took care of my 2 girls at my place ,send me pictures and I came back to 2 happy dogs and a spotless apartment. No more loosing weight and kennel cough at the boarding facility, now they can stay home with someone who is taking great care of them.

Diana is great, so friendly, understanding and amenable. Completely sensitive to our dogs idiosyncratic nature. Wafer, the dog, was completely taken care of and comfortable with Diana, he's a straightforward dog.... but has quirks and Diana was extremely sensitive to them.

Thanks a ton

I haven't had a better experience in 16 years! Diana is a spectacular dog sitter!! My dog Charlie is a 16 y/o chihuahua and he's pretty high maintenance. :) Despite trying to socialize him over the years, he normally got completely bent out of shape when I left town. He would typically be lethargic and hazy for a few days after I returned.

Not this time! Charlie was happy and alert, as if I never left. Diana was attentive and proactive on every front. Charlie (and I) couldn't be happier.

I highly (highly) recommend Diana.

Diana was great! She responds fast to text messages and she communicated well via email while I was away which made me feel comfortable knowing that my dog was in good hands while I was away. And she stayed at my apartment to take care of my dog and birds so that worked out perfect for me. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a nice, caring host to keep their dog company while out of town.

Deciding what to do with my dogs when I leave town is always the most stressful part of traveling. Having Diana stay with them during my most recent trip was a great decision. Knowing that they were in their own home and being cared for by someone as lovely as Diana gave me peace of mind. The photo updates help too.

I highly recommend Diana for your dogsitting needs. She and Mitzi got along famously, and she kept me updated with texts and photos. It was my first DogVacay experience and a very good one. Thanks!
Just had Diana watch our dogs for the second time. She was just as wonderful to work with as the first time. She was easy to reach and always sent pictures and updates. She made our trip enjoyable because we knew we didn't have to worry about our pets.

Diana was a fantastic sitter. She sent regular updates and photos and I could tell our dogs were in the best hands. We're using her again for our next trip. I highly recommend booking with her to keep your dogs in great hands.
