About Lucy & Will

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
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.

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.

Will understands animals very well. Not only does he take care of his own pooch Betty well but she is so well mannered and trained that you sometimes forget she is a dog. He has trained her to be respectful of space, boundaries, and understand commands easily. Cesar Milan would be impressed by Will!

I've been using DogVacay for years and have had quite a few different sitters for my pup, Trudy. Will and Lucy are by FAR the best I've ever had! They were communicative, trustworthy, and friendly. They gave Trudy lots of love and attention during what may have been the best week of her life, and sent lots of photos of all the fun they were having. Thank you for putting my mind at ease!

Will is the best dog sitter we've ever had! He is a really nice guy that obviously loves dogs and is extremely knowledgable. He took very good care of our dog; he took him to the park every day and even allowed him to take naps on the couch. Will sent us daily updates with pictures of our dog, which was very reassuring because we can tell he was having so much fun with Will. We would not not hesitate to have Will sit our dog when we're away again.

Will was the best host we could have asked for Ollie and Harper during a 3 day weekend away. He constantly kept us updated, took the pups to fun parks, and I am sure they had a blast. We will hope to have the pups stay again!
Will is, in one word, amazing. He always responds promptly, sends plenty photos, clearly thoroughly loves dogs, and his dog is a lovely one that gladly shares her place with her guest.

We’ve put our dog into their care 4 times thus far, am planning to do so more, and suggest you do so too!

My dog became a good friend of Will and his dog Betty. Will is very easy to reach and friendly. My dog loved to stay in his garden with Betty. Moreover he took my dog to walk around the parks in his beautiful neighborhood during her stay. Will also sent photos and messages every day so I was very relieved while I was away. Will is perfect!

My dog Biff had a great time with Will & his dog Betty -- he even seemed slightly depressed for a day or so when I arrived home! I think he got used to having constant attention and a 24/7 canine buddy.

Biff is pretty apathetic towards other dogs, and even sometimes gets annoyed by them, but he seemed to love Betty! Will even sent photos of them snuggling together.

Will picked up and dropped off Biff for me, was very communicative and easy to work with. I received detailed updates and photos each day of their adventures and fun. He made everything super convenient for me, and I did not worry even a tiny bit about Biff while I was away.

I definitely recommend Will and hope to use him again soon!
