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!
