I would highly recommend Donna! I was very nervous about leaving my dog, Penny, for over a week. Luckily, I met Donna who is so warm and friendly! She is very professional and cares for each dog as if they were her own. She sent us photos and updates regularly. I will definitely use her services again! Thank you, Donna!

Donna was an amazing help when we were in a bind. She took our dog with just a few minutes notice. She was kind and gentle. Our dog seemed very happy after two nights with Donna, and was well looked after. Thanks, Donna! We will definitely be repeat visitors!

Donna did a great job, taking care of Benny and certainly kept us both informed of his activities. I'm certain he was well cared for and loved in our absence. Plus he made a new friend: Barry.
Donna is a very nice, honest and sincere woman. She took very good care of my dog. He was in good shape when I returned!
Sebastian had another wonderful stay with Donna. He got excited as the car came around the corner on her block, and never looked back once he saw her on the sidewalk. Loved the photos sent daily! He was very relaxed and content when picking him up. He will be going back.

Donna was great with our Pearl while we travelled for a week! She routinely sent pictures and Pearl was so happy when we went to pick her up. I would certainly use Donna again!
Very sweet woman, excellent with my dog and Flexible. My dog loves her.
What can I say...we just love Donna. She is extremely kind, warm and attentive to both us and our little pooch. I'm always at ease in speaking with her, she's very responsive and accommodating. All things you want and need in someone caring for your dog. Just a lovely person all around and we're so glad to have found her. Thanks again Donna for watching our girl, really appreciate everything.

We are super happy with Donna and were able to relax knowing our Frenchie was in good hand . Donna met phoebe prior to the vacay to ensure she was comfortable with her own dog. It could not have went better. Donna was very flexible with dropoff and pickup. Could not recommend enough.
Thanks Donna!!!

Donna and Berry are wonderful hosts/sitters! This was Chalupa's second stay with them. When we dropped Chalupa off, he was happy and relaxed...same when we picked him up a week later.

Donna clearly loves dogs and cares for her visitors like her own. Berry and Chalupa have become great friends.

thank you!!

I am delighted to have found Donna. She is a sweet and gentle person who clearly adores and understands dogs, even a little diva like Muppet. I received regular photos and when I went to collect Muppet after 2 weeks away Muppet seemed relaxed and comfortable, and in no rush to leave, which is unusual. Other times I've left her with people she will be scratching at the door to go as quickly as possible! Saying goodbye to Donna was very different - Muppet clearly wanted as many goodbye cuddles from her as possible. Donna and her handsome dog Berry were a delight and I will definitely be leaving Muppet under their care and friendship again.

Donna did an awesome job with Chalupa. She was very communicative in advance and worked with me through some trickly scheduling. Posted lots of pics while he was with her. And helped with a hand-off to a friend at the end of the visit.

Chalupa came home very happy and with a new set of friends --both human and doggie.

thank you Donna!

Donna was a wonderful host to my dog Wally. She is kind and caring, and she clearly loves dogs. From our first meeting, she completely put my mind at ease, and I knew that Wally would be in good hands! She wisely thought to bring her own dog along to our initial meet-up, so that he and Wally could get comfortable with one another. She even took the time to give Wally and I a walking tour of her neighborhood, after learning that we had never been there before. If that's not a testament to her kindness, I don't know what is! Throughout our weekend away, Donna updated us with pictures of Wally enjoying his vacation. It made us feel so good to know that he was enjoying his stay! We picked him up today, and he has been curled up sleeping ever since - he is tired and happy, and I couldn't ask for more! Thanks, Donna!

Donna was a lovely doggy host! She is very approachable and warm, and you can tell she genuinely loves animals. She was smart in letting our dog meet her dog on a walk, so they could get accustomed to one another while outside of the home. I highly recommend her services as a caretaker for your pet while you are away! We will definitely use her again the next time we visit Westchester!

Donna was lovely to deal with as we had to arrange a last minute stay for our dog. She was very accommodating to make sure everything went smoothly and we could see Rupert had been well looked after.
We look forward to using Donna again for our next trip - great experience overall!!

Donna looked after my pup while I stopped for a family meal on my way out of New York for the weekend. She was incredibly flexible, communicative and caring with Kirby. He was well taken care of and got along well with her dog. I would recommend her to look after your beloved dog!

We felt very relaxed while on our family vacation, feeling confident that Sebastian was being well taken care of - as good as, if not better, then at home! :-) Donna was well prepared to receive him, went out of her way to stay in touch with us over the course of the 10 days, and sent lots of pictures! We will definitely have her watch him again should we go away!
