Hello! I offer walks, cat visits, & in-home dog sitting (sorry no boarding!). I have been working with dogs as a walker full-time for five years, and I was raised alongside many adopted dogs and cats. I understand what it's like to have pets who are a part of your family, and I love that pet care allows me to have a positive impact on pets and owners' home lives.
Some quick admin. notes...
*Scroll down to bottom of this description for full pricing info.
*If you just want to do a meet & greet prior to a sitting, I am often available even though my calendar here says that I'm not.
*I am bonded & insured through Pet Sitters Associates.
I offer in-home sitting for dogs in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Long Island City. In-home sitting saves your pet the anxiety of adjusting to a new setting, keeps them safe from contagious diseases, and allows for a more personalized experience.
For in-home sitting, dogs in my care typically receive two 30 minute walks a day as well as one 15 minute walk midday, though I am open to altering my schedule. All sittings include twice a day feedings, wee-wee pad changes for puppies, administration of any required medication, plant watering, mail fetching... and unlimited belly rubs (:
I offer walks in the Union Square & surrounding area weekdays from 10 to 5 (I am sometimes free for an evening or weekend walk as well). I am safety-oriented and never leave dogs outside unattended. I limit group walks to four dogs, and I am careful to select compatible walking buddies. I send an update after every walk, and I also send pictures weekly.
I am very fond of cats as well and always make sure feline companions are afforded plenty of affection and playtime. If you are looking for cat care only, please send me a message with your location/neighborhood and the dates you would need visits.
