- PLEASE READ BEFORE MESSAGING - If your dog does not have experience around cats or does not do well with them (including chasing, even if it's "playful") please do not reach out, since we will have to reject the request. The cats are generally fine around dogs, but puppies and larger or more active breeds are likely not a good fit (sorry, terrier owners!)
We're Kate & Paul, a responsible, dog-loving couple in a spacious Boerum Hill apartment. We have a medium-sized dog who loves to have furry friends over, and two cats who are tolerant of well-behaved pups.
We live on the ground floor and have a massive, private backyard for your dog to run around. Our neighborhood is quiet and calm, so we will also provide stress-free walks, and we're a quick stroll from either Fort Greene Park or the Pier 6 dog run at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Whether your pup loves company or prefers to chill without many other dogs, s/he will have plenty of outdoor options!
We both work full-time (approximately 8:30-6:30) on weekdays, so your dog should be OK (no barking, no property-destruction, no accidents) without human supervision for that length of time. We can provide full-time supervision on weekends/holidays.
Our pup Ellie is around 5 years old and loves to make new dog friends! We foster & dog-sit often and she's always been friendly and totally non-aggressive with any new pal who stays with us.
We are members of Zipcar and Car2Go, so we can transport your dog in case of emergency, and may be able to arrange pick-up/dropoff in Brooklyn for an additional fee.
We're more than happy to answer any questions, work out custom arrangements or set up a meet-and-greet - just message us. We look forward to giving you and your pup a great vacay!
