About Judy

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in a brownstone duplex in Ft. Greene. I have a beautiful, private and secure garden that is fenced around the perimeter. Trees, flowers, and plenty of Brooklyn's fresh air. Also, Fort Greene Park, for fun/play/walks, is just footsteps away. I have been pet sitting for 6 years and have experience handling small, medium, large breeds.

I am a responsible, punctual, loving, mature, and a caring dog lover. I enjoy welcoming your family member(s) into my home for their stay with me. I have cared for the pets of neighbors and friends. I would welcome the opportunity to provide a safe and loving environment for your pet(s) to be in, while they await your return.

My experience administering medication
I am comfortable giving a pet their medications with the exception of injections.

This was our 14 year old dog's first vacay with Judy & it went great. She was comfortable with a senior dog - which was perfect for us. She checked in with us during the 2 days & asked questions when needed given he's a bit picky about food =) He came home happy & Judy was wonderful. Thank you!!
Wonderful! Very dependable and a great host. Our dog was in great hands with Judy.
We had a wonderful experience with Judy and highly recommend her!!!! Our dog, Abby, can be a bit skittish, but she took to Judy right away. When we picked Abby up, she was happy, playful, and seemed to have had a great visit. Judy was very thorough in wanting to know all about Abby in our pre-visit meeting, asking questions I hadn't even considered, but was important information for her to have on hand. We will be using Judy again in the future. A really delightful person.
Judy was able to accommodate us at the last moment for a two week long stay, and did a great job! Despite the rush, she was very thorough about getting the full information that she needed from us about our dog, Bella. Bella is a recent rescue dog and is energetic, and we weren't sure how she would do without us and while staying with other dogs. Judy handled it all very well, sending us great photos and updates about Bella and her new friends. We will definitely use her again when we go out of town.
Judy was easy to get in touch with, sent regular pictures of our little guy and even let us extend our trip an extra day when we got too busy! She was so loving with our dog and it was clear when we picked him up that he had had an amazing time. Highly recommend!
Sperry had a great stay with Judy. She was very responsive and flexible with our schedule. Sperry came home happy and relaxed. We plan to use Judy again in the coming months!
Judy is the epitome of a DogVacay host! Her meticulous meet and greet
Judy was great! Our Maltese milo is typically only a human dog but he made a new friend while staying and had a huge smile on his face when he came home. Will def be using Judy's services again when needed!
Judy is great, and immediately made our nervous pup feel comfortable and welcome!
Of course she allows the dogs o the furniture! Bella loves going to Judy and I feel secure when she is there.
Judy is great as always!
Judy was absolutely amazing with my dog Chip! Chip suffers from a bit of separation anxiety so I was nervous to leave him for 10 days while I went on vacation, but Judy took such amazing care of him and sent me regular pictures which really helped. She took the time to get to know Chip's daily routine and made him feel right at home. I would absolutely recommend her to any pup parent.
Our dog, Biloxi, just loves staying at Judy's place. It is like an airbnb for dogs! She is in the neighborhood and it has become like her home away from home. Judy is great with dogs and she sends a photo and text daily, which is so great. We just love our dog staying with Judy.
Judy is great! I highly recommend her. My dog loved her.
Judy is the best! Ralphie loves her madly!
Judy was great! She took great care of Ajax and sent pictures and updates throughout his stay. You can tell Judy truly cares about the animals she takes care of. When we picked him up, Ajax looked well taken care of, and like he had made himself at home. I would definitely recommend Judy to anyone.
Judy is so wonderful. Ralphie loves staying with her and is so happy when he gets home! What a joy.
If Judy isn't available, I don't go away.
We love Judy, and so does Ralphred! She's so sweet to him, and he is so calm when he leaves her house. A plus!
This was my first time leaving my boy Reggie with Judy. We had a meet and greet and based on her questions, I knew Reggie would be in great hands. With the tropical storm Joaquin in the area and Reggie not liking rain, I was worried she would have her hands full. She sent me pictures every day and I could see the Reggie was very comfortable. I would definitely use her again. I'm so glad I found her and!
Judy was a terrific host - very thorough in our meet & greet and getting to know about my dog prior to his stay. She was very accommodating and I felt confident leaving my dog with her that he was in good and caring hands with Judy
She is absolutely fabulous with my dog Buster! He can be a handful but she's a godsend.
Bella loves going to Camp Judy! I know I don't have to worry about my dog when she is there. She enjoys playing with other dogs, and she stays cool on hot days.If Judy isn't available I stay home!
Judy is so kind and takes such amazing care of Samson while we are gone! We don't like to leave him, but if we have to, we are glad he is in Judy's reassuring hands.
Judy was thorough and available the entire process. I felt totally at ease leaving my beloved pup with her!
Judy was just the best. Her home and backyard were a paradise for Ralphie, who stayed with her for 9 nights. He was so relaxed post trip -- the opposite of his behavior after a long stay at the boarding house. Judy also updated us regularly by sending friendly texts and photos. Couldn't recommend her more highly!
Bonnie had another terrific stay with Judy! She sent lots of great photo updates. This was our second stay and Bonnie couldn't wait to get inside Judy's place when I dropped her off-- a sure sign she enjoys herself there. We'll be back.
Judy was really a home away from home for our little 13 year old Sasha! We went away for our wedding and Honeymoon for 3.5 weeks and Judy looked after our little girl for the whole time! This was the first time we used DogVacay and we are beyond thrilled we found Judy! We were kept updated with regular photos and messages saying how Sasha was doing. Judy really loves dogs and cares for them as her own- we will be more than happy to use her again!
Judy was great! She was extremely organized at every step of the process and flexible with my schedule. She sent photos to keep me up to date on Bonnie while I was out of the country, and Bonnie came back happy, healthy and sleepy-- the perfect combination. :-) I'll definitely have Bonnie stay again.
As always Judy was great and Olie was well taken care of, we returned to a happy tired puppy! :)
Judy did a wonderful job taking care of Jimmy while we were away. We would not hesitate to have the little guy stay with him again,
I would trust any animal with this dog lover!
Judy was nothing less than amazing. I was hesitant to leave my dog Samson with anyone because he is my baby and I am never without him, but since going out of country on honeymoon necessitated leaving him behind, I knew I had to find a good temporary home for him. After leaving him with Judy for a week, I'm pretty sure Samson wanted to stay with her as opposed to come home with my husband and me! She took excellent care of Sammie. You could tell he had an amazing week under her care. She emailed us photos of Sammie cuddled up with her and going out on walks with her while we were abroad; she never hesitated to reassure us when we were being worrywart pet parents. Judy has a loving heart and it showed in the week she watched Samson. I would absolutely recommend her.
This was Grizzly's second stay with Judy - and just like his first visit, he had a great time and was very well cared for! We appreciate Judy's text updates and photos; we look forward to having her take care of Grizzly the next time we are out of town! Thank you Judy!
Our pup has been with Judy almost as much as with us during the past few months. This time it was for three whole weeks! We always return to a happy pup who has received great care.
We had a very positive experience with Judy. And will certainly be back.
Judy is the best! Careful and caring.
Judy always provide fantastic care and is very accommodating.
Judy took great care of our Sophie. Our pup (Jack Russell/rat terrier mix) can be a bit high-strung and nervous around new people. Judy was very understanding and acommodating. She sent text updates even though sophie only stayed one night. Sophie came come tired and content. We will use Judy again.
Always great service!
Judy was a fantastic sitter for Olie. We left our energetic 2 year old boston bulldogge for almost a month with Judy while abroad and felt totally safe during our time away. We got bi-weekly pictures and updates from Judy and Olie looked like she was having a great time. She is a very allergic dog and has strict dietary restrictions as well as special grooming needs and Judy took care of it all perfectly. We returned to a healthy, happy dog. Thanks Judy!! Would highly recommend her to anybody.
Bella is pampered and loved when she stays with Judy. I feel secure knowing that my dog is so well taken care of.
When we drop our dog off with Judy, we know he is in good hands!
It is very obvious that Judy loves dogs. Even better is that she is home during the day and has a little green patch out her back door.
This is the second time we've left Ruby with Judy; we were so confident with her after our first experience that we had absolutely no reservations about leaving our furry child with her again. Ruby recognized Judy immediately and was nothing but happy to see her. Ruby was meticulously cared for and we even got a nice text message and picture of her even though she was only staying for 3 nights. We again highly recommend Judy without any reservations and have already arranged to have her watch Ruby again when we go away in February.
Grizzly had a fantastic time staying with Judy! We were so impressed with how communicative Judy was with us over the weekend; she sent us photos and text message updates daily.

Judy has a great demeanor with pups and Grizzly was obviously very comfortable with her - he gave Judy lots of goodbye kisses when we picked him up to go home. We look forward to having Grizzly stay with Judy again in the future.
After a couple of unhappy times in Brooklyn kennels this year, our dog is so relieved that we found Judy. Judy is responsible, flexible, and attentive to the individual dog. She has a great set up for having happy dogs. Thanks Judy.
Judy met with us the day before Winston was to stay with her to make sure we were all a good fit. I could tell immediately that she was going to be great with Winston. This was his first stay over night except when he got neutered and we were a bit on the apprehensive side. Judy was great...she responded to all of my texts by sending photos and updates. Winston was happy to see us the next day, but seemed very happy to have been there. We will definitely go to Judy again when we next have the need for a dog sitter. She was terrific!!
Judy took amazing care of Ginger. She was responsive to my emails and gave me updates while I was out of the country. Ginger came home healthy and happy.
We are very pleased to write this review in support of Judy. Judy watched our furry child, Ruby, when we went away for a week. We were updated everyday with texts and pictures and Ruby came back as if nothing had occurred. Ruby was very comfortable from the moment we met Judy in our pre-reservation interview. Do not hesitate to hire Judy.
Bella ran ahead of me and ran up the stairs when we got to Judy's. Bella loves her sleep-overs there. I have a relaxed time knowing she is so happy.
There are very few people we would entrust with our dog and Judy is one of them. She also happens to be one of the few people our dog, Otis, actually enjoys staying with (he's quite particular). We love that she stays in touch throughout his visit to let us know how he's doing - pictures included! Looking forward to his next visit!
Judy is Bella's second mom. Very happy with this host.
Judy was very accomdating and easy to work with! Sadie had a great time.
Judy is great! It is so nice to have no qualms about leaving my dog when I go away. I highly recommend her.
Judy is great! I've used her a couple of times now for my pup and will continue to use her in the future. She provides a perfect home away from home for my dog!
Judy is very kind, professional, responsive, and accommodating.
Judy is fantastic. I've used her services multiple times over the past 12 months and ever time my dog is a happy dude. She truly loves dogs and looks after them as if they were her own. She lives super close to a park and I know my dog will get in good walks with her. She'll always send a few photos of my dog to reassure me that he's doing great. Judy is also great at handling different food situations. Lets just say my little dude requires something more then just a scoop of kibble and she's had no problem with it.

She boards a few dogs at a time and its been great at exposing my dog to more social situations. Sometimes a dog isn't social and she's great at separating that dog from any other dogs that she currently has.

Judy is at the top of my list of dogvacay hosts whenever I need a place. I know that he'll be safe, happy, and well-cared for with her. I highly recommend her to everyone.
Judy is a great host. So loving with our dog. Kona had a great time.
So happy that we found Judy! In preparation for our two week holiday trip, we left our dog with Judy for an overnight to see how he would do handle it. He was quite at home w/ her - even got a share of the bed! You can tell that she has a way with animals. Can't wait to send him back again for the holidays!
Judy was a wonderful dogsitter for Tracie and we were very comfortable leaving her with Judy. We know she loved her stay and when we picked her up she looked like she didn't want to leave Judy's loving care. Judy sent us pix daily and we know Tracie was in great hands, and next time we go away we will definitely use Judy.
Judy was a warm and genuine person to deal with. Extremely easy-going, and really set my mind at ease when I had to leave my right hand man "Billy" in her care. I will definitely use her again in the future. Thank You!
Judy is always fantastic and takes great care of my dog. She really treats him like a member of her family.
Judy is a wonderful caregiver for your pup while you are away. I was able to go away for the weekend and not worry at all about Bean because I knew he was very well taken care of!
Judy took great care of our dog, Izzy, while we were on vacation. She was extremely responsive to emails and very thorough in all of our exchanges. We weren't concerned at all during our trip about how our pup was doing as we could tell she was going to be well looked after. Izzy came back tired and happy from a week of fun. We definitely would recommend Judy to anyone looking for a petsitter and look forward to the possibility of using her again in the future.
Judy took great care of our energetic puppy and was extremely flexible with pick up and drop off times. She also sent us texts with photos, which was fantastic. Thanks Judy!
Judy looked after Midnight for 10 days and we were very happy to have her caring for him. She sent us photos, and was always available to check in when we called. We will definitely trust Judy to take good care of Midnight when we next go out of town!
