About Denise

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
__ Please note before messaging __
About big dogs (45 lbs. plus) we do have a rather fragile and nervous little dog who has been accidentally hurt by active dogs only a little larger, so for larger dogs it is especially important that they be very low energy dogs of the gentle giant/senior dog type! Personally, I love a pittie or Australian Shepherd who wants to run in the park and play ball, but it's not going to work in our household right now. We do accept larger dogs but they have to be to the low-key, submissive extreme.

Hi and welcome to Cuddle Condo in Cobble Hill! We specialize in providing a calm, peaceful environment for dogs who dislike chaos & rough play but love human contact. Perfect for seniors, nervous dogs, rescues, and dogs who don't do well in large daycare environments. Because we already have one fur baby and I also teach piano in the home, we accept only neutered, house-broken (outside or pee-pee pads), vaccinated dogs that do not have a history of nipping people or other dogs. Guest dogs must be low-energy and/or submissive, esp. if they are larger. We are home most of the time but may be gone 4-6 hours a day some days. When we are gone, we keep dogs separate and in safe environments through your choice of crates or baby gates.

About us: My husband and I adore dogs! We have grown up with them and love hanging out with them, and I am an experienced pet-sitter. In college, my professors would get into arguments with each other about whose house I would stay in to pet-sit for school breaks! I got a foothold in New York City as a live-in cat-sitter for the late concert pianist, Ruth Laredo. I am also an Advisory Board member for NYC's Animal Haven shelter, and I donate a substantial amount of my vacay earnings to them.

We live on a quiet side street, and each vacay day for your pup includes 2-3 relief walks around our neighborhood (depending on if they are spending the night) plus unlimited indoor playtime and cuddles. I am a free-lancer and am generally home most of the day. My husband works in an office so I am the "primary caregiver", but as you can see from the photos, he is quite the dog-lover!

Denise was great. She took wonderful care of my dog while we were on vacation. I would love for her to watch my dog every time!
Denise is fantastic. She's a true dog lover and veteran of the neighborhood. During Oscar's stay with her she sent photos daily which was a really nice touch.
We used Denise's service for the first time last week . We had never left our 8 year old with anyone that we did not know before and were very nervous . Denise and her husband are real dog lovers and put us all at ease . Would love to have them look after him again .
