Hi! I'm a photographer and studio manager for a photographer working in downtown Manhattan. I live in a spacious apartment in Brooklyn on the second floor. I live 5 blocks away from Fort Greene Park which is a great place for lengthy and fun dog walks. I work from home and am very flexible! I am more likely to sit your pup in your home, as my roommate would prefer that but in some cases I can do boarding!
I absolutely adore dogs, I feel that my playful personality is well suited for dogs. But I also have a soft side which can do very well with older dogs and more timid ones. I will be able to provide an active and fun & most importantly loving environment for any dog I take care of!!!
Since I was born my family always had dogs and I was surrounded by them. I grew up with two high energy and intelligent Border Collies, who were brothers. As an older teen I watched and nurtured them both as they grew old, losing much mobility and strength. Those last few years I became closer with my senior dogs than I had been before. I spent all of my time at home with them, carrying them up stairs, sleeping by them, letting them out at odd ours. After they passed my mom and I adopted a mix large female from the Humane Society, she had been abused. It took almost a year for me to gain her trust and for her to let me even pet her head. I understand and am capable of nurturing anxious, timid dogs as well as more sociable ones.
