About Ali

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Ali. I'm a neurotic dog mom and a serious dog lover who is here to provide care for pups with the most intense, to the most laid back owners. Your pup will be treated like a member of the family and will receive the same amount of love as my own dog. I've watched over 30 dogs here on DogVacay of all sizes, breeds and special needs, many of them are repeat guests, as well as countless friends dogs. I work 7:30AM-4:00PM in Brooklyn, about 15 minutes from my apartment, so I'm very close to home. My husband Kyle works 9:00AM to 6:00PM, so pups are barely alone for a full work day. I live in a 2 bedroom apt. with my husband in Brooklyn, with our own beautiful, large terrace, for maximum playtime! We also have a gorgeous roof deck where we love watching sunsets with our own pup. Von King park is a few blocks away, which we take long walks through daily. We have a little pooch of our own, his name is Russ. He's a Brussels Griffon/Terrier mix rescue. He's super laid back, independent, loves other dogs (as long as they're neutered!) and is always down for a nice long walk. He lives to be outside, so your pup will get tons of outdoor time! Our daily schedule consists of waking up with an immediate long walk, followed by feeding. As soon as I get home from work, around 4:30, he gets a long walk and dinner, and then another long walk before bed. (Sometimes 2 walks before bed!) We always let Russ hang out on the terrace or roof for hours (whenever we're home to supervise!), so your dog will enjoy sunning with Russ! Energetic guest pups love to get their energy out on the roof and run like crazy! I give my pooch healthy treats, like apples and carrots, along with a huge assortment of dog treats which your pup is more than welcome to share, with your permission, of course. Russ has a big toy bin filled with goodies that he LOVES to share! I am more than willing to customize care for your dog if needed. If you have a certain routine you'd rather stick to, just let me know! I'll also send you photos as often as you'd like while you're away. No amount of photos is too many for me! We can even FaceTime!
I understand the importance of finding a great dog sitter. I pride myself (and so does Russ!) in providing the absolute best care for your dog. Your pooch will be treated as one of my own. And they MAY just have a better vacay than you do!

Russ and I are looking forward to meeting you!

* I provide curbside pick-up & drop-off. For owners with older dogs, or if you're just on the run! I'm more than happy to come out and scoop up/drop off your pooch and his/her things. Because nobody wants to hail another cab or find a parking spot! (Please note that we live in a 3 story walk-up. I have no problem carrying smaller or older dogs up & down the stairs! But please make sure your larger dog can handle the walk up.)

* If your dog has special medical needs (such as shots or specific medication administering), I am more than happy to have you show me how it's done so that I can provide this service for you.

* Last minute bookings are no problem! Russ and I understand that life happens. You can bring your pooch and their things along on the meet and greet and if all goes well, we will host your dog that night! **Booking confirmation must be complete prior or during meet & greet.

*I am very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times, any pick-up times after 10:00PM the night your pups vacay ends should be discussed before booking a reservation. Any one-off instances can be discussed at the time of need. Because we understand that life happens, and we are extremely flexible!

** Russ and I do our absolute best to make your pups vacay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible from the meet and greet to the last day of your pups stay! There's truly nothing we love lore than reading your reviews about your stay with us. Please leave a review and let us know how your stay was!

We look forward to your stay with us!!

Ali is the best! Rosie is always so happy when we pick her up. Highly recommended
Ali was absolutely incredible!

She took great care of our pug for an entire weekend and sent us plenty of updates with photos of Marshall having a blast. We felt completely at ease knowing Marshall was staying in a safe and happy environment.

Ali was extremely communicative and very helpful in coordinating everything related to dropping off and picking up our pup.

Could not possibly recommend Ali more and will definitely be sending Marshall back to her!
Ali was amazing. My wife went into labor and the original person we had lined up to watch our dog had a last minute conflict. Thanks to Dogvacay I was able to connect with Ali while at the hospital and arrange for her to pickup our dog. During the stay she was incredibly responsive and provided lots of updates and pictures of our dog having awesome and fun weekend with her. I am not sure he even wanted to come back to us. I would highly recommend Ali and hope to have our dog stay with her again in the future.
