About Will

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I 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, I trained her using the Cesar Millan method of calm-assertive energy, which I 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.

I 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. I will walk your dog at least 2x per day or as often as you require. I live with my partner Lucy who will be at home in the evenings, who loves dogs and is also an experienced dog handler.

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.

I have lived with dogs my whole life, 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.

I am a self-taught dog groomer, with 4 years experience grooming an unruly Tibetan Terrier coat. I offer grooming services such as nail clipping, bathing, brushing and haircuts. I have my own top of the range grooming equipment, and am skilled in keeping a dog happy and calm during the groom.

I 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!

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!
