About Robert

1 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a 23-year-old New York native with many years of caring for pets of all stripes. I've walked dogs on a short- and long-term basis, and taken care of pups overnight and for extended stays (up to multiple months), so I'm well-versed in all kinds of dog behavior. I've looked after shelter cats and have experience helping pets with abandonment or behavioral issues, so I'm comfortable with very hands-on care.

My home is a wood-floor apartment with a long hall for dogs to play in. Dogs would stay in my room and sleep where they like. It's located in Washington Heights, close to numerous dog parks and a beautiful riverside walk where pups frequently socialize.

On a normal day, I love to take dogs out for walks in the neighborhood and let them play off the leash in safe, enclosed dog runs. For outgoing dogs, I'm always ready to let them socialize with other pups, or give special care and attention to more skittish ones. If you want to bring their favorite toys, I'd love to play their favorite games with them. In the house, they'll have free run of the place. We don't have an outdoor space, so I'll take them out for as many walks as they need. I'm also willing to bathe dogs if need be.

I'm a dog lover currently without a pup of my own, so I'm extra excited to meet your pooches and give them as much love and attention as you do!

Robert was my go to sitter for two weeks and he went above and beyond my expectations. When it comes to working and caring for dogs Robert showed so much passion and affection. He checked in with me often and respond to texts in a timely manner. During our meet and greet I felt that Robert was very attentive and would ask questions to provide the best care for Moka. Out of all the dog sitters I have had, he is definitely on my top three list. If you book a stay with Robert your furry baby will be in good hands!

Robert is an incredibly caring and diligent pet sitter. I was living with him while he was looking after a friend's dog during an extended stay and he was extremely responsible, taking him out for numerous walks per day and making sure he played well with other dogs they encountered. He was very careful when letting the dog off the leash and even put his body in the way of another dog that was behaving aggressively towards the dog he was caring for. Robert treats pets with such love and attention as if they were his own. He's the best person I can think of to take care of yours.

Robert was great with our two dogs. He had them for 8 nights over Thanksgiving, which is the longest we've left them. They're good dogs, but can be very energetic, and he was great about taking them to the park every day and making sure they got all their energy out. He kept us updated daily with photos and messages to let us know how they were doing, which really kept our mind at ease. They were happy and healthy when we picked them up, and had obviously enjoyed their stay. You can tell he really loves and enjoys being with dogs, and I would recommend him to anyone. We'll definitely be booking with Robert again!

Robert was flexible in addressing our last-minute dog-sitting needs and allowed us to change plans several times for this particular stay. Our dog Hazel loved him and came home relaxed and happy.
