About Dawn

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I live by myself on the upper east side. I grew up with dogs and I have a lovely Golden Retriever, a Labradoodle and an Old English Sheepdog back home in Singapore. I decided to join DogVacay because I really miss them and I really enjoy the company of dogs. I have a lot of experience with dogs because I have been around them my entire life and have even dogsat for friends and family on several occasions!

I currently work from home and I live in a duplex that comes with it's very own balcony! So your pup will have 24/7 supervision and plenty of space to laze around in my apartment.

I will give your dog at least 3 walks a day, or more if you require. Carl Schurtz park is located close so I can take them to the dog run there!

Thank you for viewing my profile and feel free to set up a meet and greet before making your decision. I look forward to meet your precious pups! :)

Please note that the holiday rate will be 45/night for boarding!

Dawn was an amazing dogsitter, she was 100% communicative and sent us daily photos. She told us about Millie's routine, what she did during the day and we really appreciate it. It was a peace of mind for us.
Dawn was very friendly and accommodated us. She lover our pup and he feels her positive energy. Dawn is great.
Dawn was great. My wife gave birth to our new baby boy late in New Year's Eve. We needed last minute help to watch our pup on New Year's Day. Dawn was able to not only help out last minute and watch Malu but was able to come and pick him up at our apartment while we were both at the hospital.

Dawn sent pictures of their day together and Malu was clearly having a great time.

Would recommend Dawn and would definitely use her again.
Dawn was such a great sitter for my dog Nadia. Nadia is a bit of an anxious dog but Dawn managed to make sure she was well cared for during her stay. She also managed to keep me posted with photos and updates regularly. Thanks so much for your help!
Dawn was terrific. Our dog, Archie, seemed really happy when we returned. She was great with communication during the stay, assuring us that Archie was in good hands and was easy to coordinate drop-off and pick-up. Great experience.
Dawn was a great host! She took wonderful care of Cassie while we were out of town - going above and beyond when Cassie wasn't feeling too well in the first few days. I would definitely recommend Dawn and Cassie will hopefully spend time with her again in the near future!
Taylor's 4th time back here. Amazing as usual! I never have to worry when he's with Dawn. Thank you so much!
Dawn was the best! If I could give her more than 10 stars, I would. She was extremely flexible and took my pup in at the last minute. We were 2 hours late to pick him up but she was very understanding and accommodating. I received many cute pictures of them snuggling on the couch together. I knew he was in good hands and I would not hesitate to make a reservation with her again. Shane was very sad to leave and is already looking forward to his next vacay with Dawn!
My pup had a great time with Dawn and Aspen! I got lots of pictures and daily updates. I'll for sure be using Dawn next time I head out of town - you should too.
Great experience with Dawn. She was extremely sweet to Spanky and flexible about the drop off and pick up time. She also had other doggies at home and Spanky was never alone. Thank you Dawn!
Dawn is amazing, my dog loved his time with her! She sent the best pictures.
Dawn was very kind and caring with our dog Charlie. He is older an needs a little extra attention and she was great. Her emails and photos were really nice.
Happiest weekend of Pushkin's years in the city
Dawn was amazing as usual. I get adorable picture updates daily and Taylor always comes home a happy camper. He loves staying with her and we will definitely be back again the next time we travel. Highly recommended!
Dawn took great care of my dog. Angel came home happy after 5 nights stay.
Dawn was a spectacular host for Bodhi! She sent regular photos to help me keep up with their adventures, and she made sure he got lots of walks, play time, and a very cozy home life. He clearly had a great time with her and we are already planning his next stay.
Calvin loved staying at Dawn's place. She has great experience with large dogs which was a huge bonus for us. She took wonderful care of Calvin and sent us awesome selfies! I highly recommend booking with Dawn for any amount of stay as we will be using her for future vacays.
Dawn was able to extend pups stay at the last minute. We are very grateful.
Dawn was wonderful. Stepped in at the last moment when we had an emergency. Dogs seemed to have loved their stay with her. Many thanks
Dawn was very good and caring with Olive. She was happy when she came home.
Great vacay!! Thanks Dawn!
Dawn was great. She sent lots of photo updates of our dog and was very good communicating with us the whole time. I'd strong recommend her!
Dawn was great! Super flexible and easy going about drop off and pick up times. She sent pics all weekend long which was great! Frank came home exhausted which is always a good sign of long walks and play times. I plan on using Dawn again in the future for sure!
Dawn was great with Nova for two weeks. She send us updates and Nova looked great when we picked her up. Thank you Dawn!
Dawn did a great job with Seamus. Highly recommend her!
Another excellent stay with Dawn. See my original review for a more in-depth recap. Our 2nd stay was just as good as our first. Hachi seems really happy going to Dawn's apartment and gives her a lot of love when it is time to say goodbye; it's all quite sweet and a big relief for us. We look forward to our next visit.
I left my Lab, Chance, with Dawn over the weekend and she was so sweet and affectionate with my dog. She was quick to respond and sent great picture updates. I know Chance had a great time and I would definitely use her again.
Toby just loved staying with Dawn. She quickly and frequently gave updates and photos. I felt safe having him there in such good hands. Dawn was super responsive and amazingly accommodating when I needed to stay away an extra day. He can't wait to go back! Thanks Dawn!
Dawn is great. Ver responsive and flexible. Roger loves staying with her and always comes home tired.
Lily had a great stay here!
Was our first DogVacay (and any service of this kind) so of course we were nervous. We chose Dawn given her proximity to our location, the past reviews, and a positive meet-and-greet. Happy to report that it was an excellent experience across the board. Dawn allowed us the flexibility we needed, was responsive in exchanges leading up to the reservation, and kept us updated the day of with texts and photos. It was clear that Hachi enjoyed his stay as he was very loving to Dawn when we picked him up and said goodbye. We look forward to leaving Hachi with Dawn on our next getaway.
We couldn't have picked a better caretaker for our attention needy golden retriever. Toby came home tired and very relaxed. We got lots of photos from Dawn and regular updates. The connections were very comforting. Dawn was very professional in all her responses and contacts. She handled the meet and greet with confidence. We will definitely use Dawn again for Toby's vacation needs.
Dawn has been an incredible dog walker! She is always very responsive, on time, and sends me pictures :)
Dawn is the best!
Dawn was great with Tiger. She sent pics the entire time which was appreciated. Would def let her take care of Tiger again -Justin
Dawn is so good with dogs, I felt instantly confident that my 12 year old Daliah was going to get the best care. And she did! I definitely recommend Dawn as a host.
Dawn took such great care of my pup Taylor! She is responsible and very flexible with pickup/drop off times. Within half an hour, I received my first picture of Taylor cuddled up with her on the couch. Taylor really took to her and had a great time on Vacay with Dawn. Would highly recommend her and Taylor will definitely be staying with her again in the future!
Dawn was awesome! We needed someone to watch our big (80lb) golden retriever on about two days' notice, and Dawn was extremely helpful. She was flexible with pickup/dropoff times and sent lots of great doggy pictures. You can tell she really loves dogs, and I think Buddy had a great time staying with her.
Our dog Posy stayed with Dawn over Halloween, and she was an amazing host! Dawn clearly loves dogs and Posy took to her right away. She kept us updated with pictures over the weekend, and I have no doubt that Posy was loved and cared for just as well as if she was with us. Dawn's a natural with dogs, and we'll definitely be booking her for future stays!
Very good and communicative host, he was very energetic when I picked him up. Blackie had such a great time with Dawn! Within the first hour I received photo updates of Blackie curled up on the couch with her. She is accommodating and easy to work with while making arrangements. Whenever I am in the neighborhood Blackie pulls me towards her apartment so she must be doing something right!
Another great visit with Dawn for Porter! She's so caring and treats him like she was her own!
Dawn is a fantastic host and we are so fortunate to have her dogsit for Porter! She is very responsive and always positive and flexible with planning our reservations. Porter needs some special attention and Dawn is always willing to go the extra mile and make sure he is comfortable and well taken care of. We love having Dawn over and Porter does too!
Taylor had a great time with Dawn! He bonded with her immediately when they met. Dawn responds quickly and is very flexible. So glad I managed to find someone for Taylor at the last minute. I highly recommend her services and will definitely be using her again in the coming weeks.
