We provide the comfort and care of a loving, experienced home with plenty of playtime activities and outdoorsy fun like hiking the local parks and exploring the neighborhood. We have 20 years experience caring for dogs, giving you peace of mind knowing your pooch will be safe and sound.
We live in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, with our adorable Tibetan Terrier, Betty (4) who is spayed, loves everyone (human and canine) and is very calm. Betty is a wonderfully balanced, sweet dog, trained using the Cesar Millan method of calm-assertive energy, which we use successfully with all dogs - providing a great environment for your dog coming into a new home. We can accept dogs up to 50lb or so.
***PLEASE NOTE: Your dog must be completely house trained. We do not accept dogs that are "normally fine" at home, who have the odd accident in other's houses. DogVacay takes a large cut of every booking, so having to replace furniture or rugs, or spend money on enzyme spray and diapers, means there is very little financial reward to looking after your pooch. Please be completely honest when making a booking if your dog is not to be fully trusted to not pee or poo inside someone's home.***
We work from home which means the dogs can be out in our secure backyard or inside our spacious living room as much as is needed. We will walk your dog at least 2x per day or as often as you require.
We'll go to the park in the morning (we're close to Fort Greene and Prospect Park) and with your consent, your pooch can run off-leash with Betty during off-leash hours before 9am - either mixing with other dogs or separately, depending on your preference. Betty loves to chase the squirrels! They'll also get multiple on-leash walks.
We have lived with dogs our whole lives, with experience handling a range of breed types and their peculiarities - including caring for blind dogs, training dogs with separation anxiety, leash pulling, over excitement and barking, aggression, and recall. If you have a senior, with special needs, all activities will be done appropriately.
We offer grooming services such as nail clipping, bathing, brushing and haircuts. We use top of the range grooming equipment, and are skilled in keeping a dog happy and calm during the groom.
We will send you regular text updates with photos throughout your dog's stay with us.
