** we are new to Dogvacay but we have 28 five star reviews on Rover that we would be happy to cut and paste and send to you! :) **
"Dogs aren't our whole life, but they make our lives whole." Jake & I are the most responsible, loving, empathetic goofballs you'll find to play & care for your best friend full of hair! *or fur, it just didn't rhyme as well. :) * There is nothing better than to come home to a being that just goes ballistic w/love when you walk in the door. No matter how many dogs we've taken care of, Jake & I still marvel at having a real live animal in our home, doing it's animal thing AND we get to play & care for them! We understand dogs have ups & downs like any being, we are patient & non intrusive when necessary. We respect them and try to provide positive energy/feedback- as we know dogs are very intuitive. We understand that many dogs are rescues & may have encounter hardships on the streets, so we are conscience of their needs and reactions. They are welcome on our furniture (we have covers) and we are by their side as much or as little as they need, especially on the first couple nights away from their usual humans. We treat them as we are told by the owner so please be as specific as possible with us so we can create as familiar an atmosphere as possible. We can hang on the couch w/belly rubs galore or play a little tug a toy of war! *rhyming never gets old* :) Jake & I will have a cuddle at the ready if a doggie nightmare sets in, massage their weary bones from all the play time & love them up!
We've taken care of many dogs w/special needs, (administered meds & shots) triggers, anxieties, we have experience w/dogs that can't be around other dogs, as well as playful pups doing the hucklebuck. We can take them for 2-4 walks a day & lots of play time (we are big kids & love to play so we usually wear the dog out!). We take them to Prospect Park or there are a few smaller areas to play near us as well or just stroll around the hood. But of course, if they're not good w/other dogs, then we just walk around & mind our own business.
Our experience separately & together runs about 5-10 yrs. Jake grew up w/dogs & I've dog & cat sat for people for 5 years. We are very communicative w/ each other & the dog's family that we take care of. We are extremely patient, non-judgmental & have no problem doing what ever you need us to do to feel secure. We are puppy paparazzi and will send you a pic every day to keep your pup fresh from our hearts to yours. We look forward to meeting you all! With Gratitude- Simona & Jake
