About Assel

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Fur Babies NYC.

Best in NYC! Our goal is to exceed your expectations and build long-term relationships.

We specialize in both dogs and cats.

* We provide a high level of service in terms of quality of work, attention to detail, reliability, responsiveness, flexibility and customer service.

We always send daily photo updates. All walks, feedings, play time and optional medical injections are done promptly and with love.

* We provide filtered water and use only organic / non-toxic cleaners to provide the healthiest environment!

* I was a volunteer at an animal shelter and have always enjoyed working with animals. I treat animals as if they're a part of my family. I have also worked with one of the premier, and highest-rated, animal services agencies in Manhattan.

* Our pets provide unconditional love, which is a gift. At Fur Babies, we always reciprocate that love.

* We are located at 310 First avenue and 18th Street; a great neighborhood with good access to the East River, numerous natural parks in Stuyvesant Town and we also within walking distance of Union Square.

From the moment you meet Assel, her level of professionalism is very evident. You can tell that she has been taking care of all types of furbabies for many years. She has already worked for several private pet sitting agencies in NYC, and is very excited to join the DogVacay family!

Her apartment is dedicated to taking care of pets. The living room is open and spacious (with plenty of toys available) and has other rooms for separation needs. Assel is taking online dog training and grooming courses, and pet sitting is her FULL TIME job so you can rest assured that your furry friend will get the level of care and attention he or she needs.

Although she does live with her husband (and he fully supports her profession), Assel is the primary animal tarecaker. It is my pleasure to welcome her into our DogVacay community, and she gets all four paws up!
My puppy came home very happy! Assel was very communicative and professional. She also sent great pictures, which my wife and I really looked forward to receiving every day while on vacation. Overall great experience, very happy we went with Assel.
Assel is so kind and I felt very comfortable Leaving my puppy with her. She sent me a lot of updates and photos and her apartment is very dog friendly. Would highly recommend Assel!
Our Frenchie, Mr Pickles, loves staying with Assel! Having never been away from home, we were nervous about leaving him behind when traveling overseas for work. But after picking up Mr Pickles from Assel's after the first stay, it was obvious he loved spending time there, and that she really cares for dogs. He's been back to Assel's several times now, and pulls at his leash when he's near her apartment, ready for another vacation. Thank you Assel!
Leo had a great time!! Assel is so sweet! Thank you for all your help Leo's coming back this weekend!
Great experience! My dog was very happy!
I can't say enough nice things about Assel! My dogs were coming off a bad pet sitting experience and she couldn't have been sweeter to them and made them feel right at home while they were staying with her. She sent me numerous pictures and videos which were both fun to look at and reassuring to see what a good time they were having. Again, I can't say enough nice things about Assel and have already booked another stay with her. It's nice to feel like your dogs are also on vacation and in good hands while you're away and that's exactly what you'll get when they stay with Assel.
Assel is so sweet and really loves animals! Heidi had fun with her for the day!
This is the second time Assel has watched my 10month old puppy Tommy and I couldn't be more happy with my experience. She is incredibly caring and loving towards all the dogs she watches and my puppy immediately gravitated towards her. She has always been flexible with scheduling and is GREAT at keeping me updated with photos of Tommy throughout each one of his stays with her. I would recommend her service to anyone!
Assel was a great host for my young Shiba. She was accommodating of my short notice and sent many photos of the dogs she cared for. I look forward to Assel looking after my puppy again and absolutely recommend her to anyone.
Very flexible in pick up and drop off times.
she is excellent
Assel is very sweet and took great care of our puppy! Will definitely use her again!
Assel helped me out last minute when I had to go out of town for a few days. She sent tons of adorable pictures and I know my little Willow felt loved and taken care of. Thank you Assel!
Assel was very kind to our pup and great about sending photos and video. Wouldn't hesitate to leave him with her again.
I like how she sent me pictures almost right away!
I was quite worried initially but needless to say Assel took such good care of my chihuahua that I could be at ease on my vacation! He was quite comfortable with her ,she gave us constant updates via texts pictures . It was a relief to see him doing well there . Thanks to Assel for taking such good care .. She's really sweet and I would Happily keep my dog with her whenever required
Assel was so sweet and easy to work with. She was flexible with my unusual work hours, and my dog seemed like she got a lot of exercise and had a fun day. Her apartment is perfect for dogs and equip with everything that a dog could need. We'll definitely use her services again!
Assel was an excellent host. She is very kind and loving to the dogs. Her place is a pet playground. She took care of giving medications without any extra cost or hassle. I will definitely use her over and over again in the future.
Assel was great. My dog Max can be quite a challenge and she took such good care of him. Every day she sent photos and updates on him. I highly recommend her and will use her service in the future. She really loves the dogs and it shows.
Assel and David were great! Barnes and Rocky had a great stay, and we we're put at ease with the daily updates- Would highly recommend Assel!
I was at east knowing Assel was taking care of Bunny. She has a lot of knowledge on dog care, training, behavior and more. She was telling me more in depth things about my dog that the shelter did. Bunny was very happy and in good hands. Would definitely book again!
