After years of watching dogs for friends and family, I decided to make a career out of it. I’m a full time Mom with lots of time to devote to your dog.
We have one dog in the family. We adopted Ella in January 2016 from a former client. Ella had a hard time adjusting to her new home in NYC. Knowing that Ella loves being in our home and that we love having Ella here, her owner asked if we would like to adopt her. Ella gets along great with other dogs and loves playing, snuggling, and even sharing toys.
We have a cat, but she is older and is afraid of just about anything that moves, other than me. She tends to stay upstairs far from the action. I can take extra precautions to seclude her if needed.
Please know that when you leave your pets with me I will treat them like they are my own. I will always make sure that they are safe, loved, and get lots of exercise.
Additionally, I understand that every dog has a different personality and different rules at home. I will do by best to maintain and reinforce any ongoing training regiments and reward systems.
I'm an avid runner. If desired, I can take your dog for a run with me. I also have a spacious, fenced back yard that is perfect for a game of fetch.
Some notes about my policies, services, and rates:
All dogs must be vaccinated (please be prepared to show proof of vaccination), house-broken, and good with children. I have an 9-year old that is very calm, capable, and loves to help out.
I cannot accept any dog that is known to be aggressive or experience a high level of anxiety around other dogs. It wouldn’t be a good time for anyone.
If your dog has never stayed with us before, and your requested stay duration is five days or more, I require an overnight trial. This helps to ensure that our home is truly a good fit for your pet. Often separation and social anxiety will not surface until bed time. We have found that a trial stay provides a good transition for everyone involved, including your dog!
If pick-up time is greater than five hours beyond the time of drop-off, a half day charge will be assessed. Please include preferred pick-up and drop-off times at the time of request to ensure accurate pricing.
If your dog is crate-trained, I have one on-site, or you can bring your own.
Please send me a note with any questions.
