About Meredith

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and welcome to Belly Rubs & Instagram Mugs ("mug shots") in Park Slope!

I grew up with dogs in the family, as well as caring for others' pups. My current apartment prevents me from having a pup of my own these days (pets are unfortunately prohibited in the building), but any time I get to spend in the company of dogs is greatly valued.

I've been caring for dogs for over 20 years, and love all breeds and sizes. Prospect Park is my backyard, perfect for your pups to stretch their legs, get some outdoor playtime and take in some fresh air. While on our walks, I'll give your fur-babies my full attention and tender loving care.

Please feel free to message me with any questions you might have. I look forward to meeting you and your pups in our neighborhood soon!

Meredith did a great job watching our girls. The dogs enjoyed here company and we would gladly recommend her services. Thank you Meredith!
Meredith was doting and extremely helpful with my English Bulldog. It was his first time being left at home without going to a kennel, and the experience with her was far superior! She sent me photos of him and kept me posted on his progress. I also ordered and shipped a box of goodies for him while I was away, and she gladly opened it and rationed out the contents for him to keep him occupied. I couldn't have been happier with the experience!

the best!!
Meredith is the BEST dog sitter you could ask for. She's smart, kind, super resourceful and my dog loves her. Don't hesitate to book her time : )
Meredith did a fantastic job taking care of scout. She was so responsive - she answered my inquiry within hours on Tuesday, met us the next day, and was ready to sit for us on Saturday. We got regular picture updates, so we felt totally confident that our pup was in good hands. I can't recommend her more highly!

I have to write another review for Meredith because she is so great with our pup Lucia. My husband and I were away for a week, and typically I leave Lucia with my mom but she wasn't available during our trip. Meredith came to walk/feed/belly rub Lucia for the week we were away and when we got home it was evident that she was super well cared for! Our flight got delayed on the return home so I reached out to Meredith (super early in the morning I might add) to see if she would be able to care for Lucia that morning before our return. She responded super quick, I'm seriously so thankful. It means so much to have peace of mind and know that your pet is in good hands when you're away! Thanks again x10000, Meredith ! :)

Meredith responded very quickly when I requested a last-minute sitter for my dog and cat, and she made time to come right over to my apartment to meet the girls. My timid pup instantly took to her which was a relief and so nice to see. Within a few short hours after our initial contact, we had everything set up for the weekend.

I couldn't imagine a better experience with a sitter. Meredith kept in touch through the whole weekend with sweet pictures, updates, and assurances that everything was going great. She's wonderful and I know who I'll be calling if I ever need a sitter in the future.

Thank you, Meredith!

Meredith came over to meet our dog, Lulu and cat, Jax before our trip away and she was obviously an animal person! Lulu loved her immediately. We were worried about going away as we had a very sad experience with our older cat getting sick and having to be put to sleep while we were away recently. We wanted someone to stay at our apartment rather than just coming to feed Jax once a day. It was very reassuring while we were away to get photos and texts from Meredith updating us on all their escapades. Thank you Meredith!

Meredith was lovely and Lulu absolutely loved her!
We booked Meredith for a mid-day dog walk check-in and she was wonderful. She was great at communicating with us prior and during our reservation. We loved that she sent us pictures and it made us feel at ease with leaving our pup with her. We would definitely book her again.

Meredith has walked Casey a couple of times and looked after him for a weekend. We get updates and pictures when they are together and Casey seems to have great adventures with her!
Meredith did a great job with our corgi Madison. He is getting older and has some issues going up and down the stairs in our building. She was very understanding about the issue and during the meet and greet was able to see the situation.

When we came home Madison was happy as could be and I would use Meredith again with any hesitation.

Meredith is the perfect pet sitter. She took amazing care of our little Grits, a four-year-old rescue beagle-basset mix, and even took the time to send us photos of him getting his belly rubbed and lounging around the apartment after a walk in the park. He was obviously well cared for and happy when we returned. She was a great communicator and house guest, as well. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

Meredith was great with Lucia once again! It was so great that she was available last minute over the holiday weekend--usually finding someone to care for Lucia is a huge stress but I know she is in good hands with Meredith. Meredith will be caring for Lucia again next weekend--definitely would recommend Meredith to anyone who needs someone to care for their pup!

I booked Meredith to walk my pup Lucia pretty last minute, since my original plans had fallen through. My fiancee and I are new the neighborhood so we were really scrambling to find someone to care for Lucia. I am also a super nervous dog mom since Lucia doesn't really get along with other dogs. Meredith was amazing from our first contact...we were able to set up a meet and greet on super short notice; Meredith asked questions that I hadn't thought of and Lucia loved her from the start as well. I felt so comfortable and at ease leaving Lucia in Meredith's care! It's so hard to find someone to trust to take care of your pup and I am so happy that we've found someone super responsible in our new neighborhood to care for Lucia! I would 100% use Meredith again (and probably will!)
I would recommend Meredith to anyone looking for a great walker or dog sitter! Thanks Meredith! :)

Meredith was awesome! She was extremely responsive, flexible, and made the entire experience a complete pleasure. My dog, Boots, is a rescue and sometimes suffers from separation anxiety. Finding somebody so enthusiastic and attentive made an otherwise stressful situation a complete nonissue. I feel a lot more comfortable going out of town now knowing Boots will be in such good hands!
