About Naomi

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
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. 



Weekday walks from 10-5 (Union Square & surrounding area only):
$20 for 30 minutes
$35 for an hour

Walks for additional dogs in the same household:
plus $5 for each additional dog

Puppy visit or elderly dog checkup: $15 for 15 minutes

Walks or visits scheduled on weekends or before 10 AM or after 5 PM:
plus $5 per walk or visit

Walks or visits on major holidays*:
plus $5 per walk

Dog Sitting:

In-home dog sitting: $55 a night**

Additional dogs in the same household:
plus $10 per dog for each night (e.g. $65 a night for two dogs)

Sittings on major holidays and holiday weekends:

Drop-in visit for cats:

$25 per visit for one cat
$30 per visit for two cats
$35 per visit for three or more cats

Cat visits on major holidays and holiday weekends:

*New Years Eve/Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve/Day

**My rate for in-home overnight pet sitting is $55 a night (this includes all walks, feedings, & related care), and I always include the morning walk on the last day for free. If you are not returning until late on the last day and need an additional walk, I just charge by the walk instead of billing it as an entire additional night (this applies to the last day only)

Naomi was extremely kind to my old dog who has some health problems. Very professional, reliable, and clearly loves animals. Would definitely recommend her!
Naomi is awesome!
Naomi took great care of our dog and home. Our dog can be shy at first and seemed to warm up to her very quickly. Naomi was very accommodating and flexible with our travel schedule and left our apartment immaculate. She was even nice enough to record a football game for us that we forgot about. Would highly recommend!
Naomi was wonderful! I have two elderly dogs (9 and 16) and one has high anxiety issues and the eldest has had GI troubles this last year. Naomi not only handled each with love and care, but made sure that Chloe got in her daily exercise while managing her stress. Unfortunately, while we were away for thanksgiving break, my eldest dog was sick on our white, shag rug. I'm sure it was gross as those things are never pleasant! Naomi related the happening to me and we monitored Precious in case she needed a vet. This wasn't the case though and I must say that I was happily surprised not to see a poopy mess on our rug when we got home! I didn't expect her to clean up the mess but am so grateful she did. I would highly recommend Naomi and would feel comfortable and confident to hire her again.
Trustworthy. Kind. Serious about her job and animals. Would be my and Tala's pleasure to have her walk and/or housesit again.
Naomi is our favorite. She is really great with our girls. It is so nice to know that we can leave town and have confidence that our babies will be well cared for and loved. Thank you so much Naomi!
Naomi is the best! Every time she stays with Briar we are worry free knowing that Briar is in exceptional hands.
Overall Naomi was good, whenever I would text her for an update or photo of my 2-year old pomeranian Coco she would respond in a timely manner. However, we came home to Coco with a really crusty and dirty butt, evident that Naomi had not washed or cleaned him after walks, and since there was dried poop all around his butt Coco was extremely uncomfortable and running around the apartment rubbing his butt on all the surfaces. So not only was our dog uncomfortable due to lack of cleanliness, our apartment likely had remnants of poop throughout since he was rubbing against everything. As such, I had to get a maid and have the apartment cleaned the next day. Perhaps I should have explicitly explained that when Coco poops and some of it gets in his butt hair, that the sensible thing to do would be to simply put him under the water in the bath tub to quickly rinse it out and clean him up. But I thought an experienced dog sitter would know this :/
Naomi was great with my big guy!!!
As always - Naomi is terrific. We came back to happy animals and she sendt updates throughout.
Naomi did a great job watching Bunnie and I hope that she will always be available when I travel in the future. Her daily photo updates of my dog were a real pleasure while I was away and really put my mind at ease.
Naomi filled in when our usual Dogvacay sitter was unavailable. She was responsive to a meet and greet as Shaw is a bit uneasy around strangers. She warmed up quickly to Naomi and it was nice to have someone come and stay at our place for a change. We received updates throughout our travels, which always helps to relieve the travel guilt of having to leave Shaw at home.
Naomi was Fantastic with Anton!
Naomi is the best. Our dog cuddled right up to Naomi when she first met her. We have felt very comfortable having her care for Layla. Thanks Naomi!
great communication and I came home to a happy dog!
Naomi was great! Daisy loved hanging with her while we were on vacation. Would definitely use again.
A great vacation thanks to Naomi. We came home to happy pets!
Naomi was so wonderful. She gave regular updates and sent plenty of photos. So happy to leave our pups in such capable hands!
Naomi is wonderful! Our cat developed a bad ear infection just before we left for the weekend. Naomi handeled the whole situation with calm and compassion. She worked with a vet tech to medicate him and when that did not work (cat was terrified of vet tech) she managed to medicate him herself. She also kept in great touch throughout. She's great.
Naomi was very prompt for the Meet n Greet. When she arrived to meet our two dogs they took to her instantly which made me feel comfortable. She watched our dogs for one week and upon our return our apartment was just as we had left it and the dogs seemed happy and well exercised. We'd definitely use her again!
Naomi was so great to our two pups! One of our dogs can be very particular about how he is handled, but Naomi did such a great job with him. She sent us daily notes and photos that put us at ease while we were away.
A pet sitter I can always trust to have my pups well being come first. From the beginning to the end of my trip, I always feel at ease when I leave them in her hands.
Naomi was great! She responded to our request right away and had last minute availability. She sent regular updates with pictures.
This was my first time using DogVacay and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Naomi was absolutely great with Louie and her daily updates and pictures helped put my mind at ease. She truly is wonderful and we will definitely use her again!
This is the 3rd time Naomi has stayed with Briar and we continue to be impressed with Naomi's warmth and professionalism. We are at complete ease when Naomi is with Briar as well as with the care she takes staying at our apartment. We come home to a happy, calm pup after her time with Naomi. We are truly thrilled with Naomi and so happy that we can go away knowing we are leaving Briar in reliable, professional, kind care.
This was my second experience with Naomi. Once again, Naomi was truly wonderful and took outstanding care of my pup, even during a snow storm on a holiday evening. I would certainly recommend her to anyone. She loves dogs and is as reliable as they come. I also appreciate her texts with photos of Regis... Always nice to see my dog having fun!!!
Naomi is a godsend. She is extremely reliable and has a natural love for dogs. She did an outstanding job of texting me updates and being accessible while I was away, which gave me piece of mind. I will definitely be hiring her again in the future, and I would recommend her in a heartbeat!!
Naomi was just amazing! This was my first time using dog vacay and I was worried about leaving my pup alone with a stranger but Naomi was so natural around the house and with my dog that all my worries vanished right away. She sent me lots of updates while I was away to let me know how Sasha was doing, what games had she been playing, how she was doing on her walks and more. I felt confident that Sasha was in good hands the whole time I was away. I will definitely be booking Naomi again in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to everybody.
I had a wedding to attend and I left my dog with someone whom went above and beyond what was first desired. 2 days before my scheduled departure, my dog came down with an infection and it was basically up to her to look after my pet in her troubled time.

Naomi looked after my dogs with the same compassion as I did, and I will use her from now on, on all my needs for a pet sitter.
Naomi was terrific. We have two dogs and a cat. One of the dogs is very old and needs extra care. Naomi was kind and professional and made us totally at ease while we were away. We would absolutely hire her again and could not recommend her more highly.
Naomi was wonderful. On time, professional, and Max just loved her. She's amazing and I would use her again!
Naomi was great. My great dane, who is usually very shy with people, seemed to fall in love with her. Naomi sent lots of pics and updates while I was out of town and I'm pretty sure my dog was disappointed when I returned home. She also took great care of my apartment.
We were thrilled with our experience! Naomi was very flexible when we needed to book a last minute reservation. She took excellent care of our dogs and I would highly recommend her services.
We came home this afternoon to an incredibly happy and tired pup. Briar had a wonderful overnight with Naomi. She was literally smiling in the picture Naomi sent us from their evening adventure in the park. Briar looks forward to seeing Naomi again soon!
We had a relaxing family vacation thanks to Naomi. Knowing that our dogs were being cared for by her put us at ease. She checked in with us at the beginning and sent photos of Bella and Dougie and gave updates on how they were doing. She is knowledgeable about dogs and was able to bond easily with our dogs. I highly recommend her and won't hesitate to call her when planning our next family vacation!
Was responsible, easy going, took great care of the dogs, and left our apartment cleaner than she found it, all for an extremely reasonable price. Highly recommended.
Naomi was great!!! The pups were happy and she sent pictures regularly. Also, she left our apartment as cleaner (possibly cleaner) than we left it. Would definitely recommend.
Naomi was great with Briar. She sent us updates each day and Briar got lots of exercise. When we got home from our weekend away, she was calm and content. We will use Naomi in the future.
Consistently reliable, trustworthy, thorough, goes the extra mile, communicates well and updates cheerfully. Very high quality. Naomi has watched my little guy and his cat sister multiple times now.
Naomi is great! My dog always seems happy in the pictures she send me every time she helps us out with him. She is very responsive to all of my questions and changes in plans. I highly recommend her.
Naomi was very attentive and thoughtful. We will be using her again.
Naomi was a great dogsitter and I would happily use her again any time. She stayed at my apartment with my 220lb Mastiff, Kingsley while I was traveling and it was great to know he was in good hands and comfortable in his own home. It can be hard to find a place to leave such a huge dog so it is great to have someone like Naomi who can stay at my place and allow Kingsley to feel safe in his own environment. Naomi was a great caretaker and we'll definitely use her again in the future!
Naomi was awesome! She arrived exactly when she said she would and sent me pictures of the pups during the time I was away! Was great to know they were in such capable hands! Would absolutely recommend her and will be having her puppysit again in the near future!
Naomi did a great job again with CeeCee this week! She is prompt, follows instructions to a tee and she is sweet and gentle with the dog. She sends photos and text updates during her time at our apartment and gives CeeCee lots of attention. We will definitely have her stay with our furry friend again and again.
Naomi was great with our foster Shih Tzu, CeeCee! She was prompt and was very focused on making sure CeeCee was comfortable with her right away. She sent text messages with pictures throughout their evening together. Everything went according to plan and we will definitely have her stay with CeeCee again soon!
Naomi took great care of my two needy pups. I felt completely comfortable my whole trip and I'm a regular worrywart. Thanks Naomi!
A with the first time, was so pleased with Naomi Ruth and would ask her again in a heartbeat to take care of my little guys!
Just the best. I have usually had a friend staying at my place when I'm away. This was my first time going through this site for a petsitter. Naomi Ruth was awesome. I received updates on a regular basis, great photos, and rested assured that the little guys were well looked after. Very very happ. Will 100% have her back to stay with my little friends while I'm away.
Naomi was really fantastic !
First off she was always very prompt on e-mail and phone call replies prior to the sitting.
She completely followed my instructions in terms of Boris' care and she walked him very thoroughly so he got plenty of exercise.Most importantly she did what any pet owner really wants by putting your mind at ease and assuring me that things were good with Boris while I was away via text messages and pictures.
Five star rating,well deserved .
We will be working with her in the future .

Naomi was great with our little pug, Stella. We'd have her back anytime. Thanks Naomi!
