About Gali

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Gali, I live 1 stop from Manhattan on the L in a spacious 1 BR. My building is located 3 blocks from the waterfront and a few minutes walk from McCarren Park.

I’m a freelancer working mostly from home so your dog will have company most of the day. I’m very affectionate and I love playing, hugging and cuddling with pets.

I have been living with pets most of my life. I have 10 years of experience caring for dogs and 18 years experience caring for cats. I would love to have your dog stay with me so we can keep each other company, play and go for walks.

As an animal lover, I am a member of ASPCA, HSUS and PETA.

Since I often have more than one dog at a time, I take mostly small dogs and some medium size dogs (if the medium size dog is low energy).

To insure outmost comfort for my four legged guests, I host dogs that are:

* Spayed/ neutered and fully house trained

* At least a year old (or close to it)

* Are comfortable living in the same household with other dogs

* Not crate trained

I'm also happy to visit your kitty if you live a few minutes walk from me. I can feed him, clean his litter box and give him love and attention. I can water your plants too :). $20 for a 30 min visit. $15 for an additional 15 min visit on the same day. No extra charge for multiple cats.

I will send you pictures via email, text or WhatsApp and we can also do Skype/ FaceTime calls if you’d like.

Your pet is like your child and I will treat him as such. I would love to meet the two of you before hand so I can get to know your dog and learn all about his/ her habits and preferences.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Gali is the ultimate animal lover and is the perfect host for your pup's next vacay. She works from home with a flexible schedule allowing plenty of attention dedicated to your pup. She lives in a well-maintained doggy-proof apartment with plenty of natural light with space to roam and a open space to play fetch!

In addition to Gali's great company, your pup may also meet a new friend (or two) during their stay as Gali frequently cares for more than one pup at a time. Gali's track record of providing consistent and high level care for many repeat guests was recognized by DogVacay HQ and is a designated Host Mentor, providing new hosts tools and tips to create a positive and top notch experience for pup guests.

Gali can't wait to care for your pup and will keep you updated with plenty of daily pupdates and photos during the vacay!

Gali was extremely personable for us when we left our dear Trixie with her. She knew what time zone we were going to so she could send us texts and pictures at the correct time of day. Trixie is normally very easy to take care of, but a day before she was to stay with Gali, she had a veterinarian emergency. Gali was able to administer Trixie's meds and gave her plenty of attention while wearing her cone of shame. We would recommend Gali for sure.

Gali was a terrific host for Shibuya (a 2 year old mixed terrier). She took a great care of her and kept sending us photos through out the stay. I highly recommend Gali as she is very reliable and a true dog lover.
Gali was amazing. Very thorough meet and greet to screen Dax for fit. Showed me her house and walked me through her process. Was available last minute and willing to keep Dax longer when my work trip got extended. She became a huge fan of my dog and showed me tons of daily photos to make me feel comfortable. Gali is fantastic and I will be booking her again soon!

Gali was amazing! She sent tons of photos and you could see his happy our pup was. He came home exhausted because he was playing so much!
Once again, Gali was a fantastic host for Charlie! Gali also really helped me out last minute, and watched Charlie with little notice. Thanks again!
Misty had a wonderful stay at Gali's as usual with lots of trips to the park and other adventures and lots of attention. Although she's usually nervous when I leave her when I go out of town, with Gali she stays incredibly calm and happy and does not even seem to miss me :)

Once again, Charlie had a fantastic vacay! Thanks so much, Gali!
Gali is the absolute best!! We have never trusted anyone but close friends to watch our rescue dog Dudley when we leave town... But for a nearly 2 week trip we thought it was too much to ask of friends. Dudley has trust issues, but he immediately responded well to Gali's calm energy when we went for the meet and greet. Gali is organized, conscientious and communicates both frequently and clearly. She sent us tons of cute pics and videos of Dudley + the other cute pups she looked after during our trip--lots of happy walks, playtime and cuddles :) When we finally picked him up it was clear he had a wonderful stay and that they had formed a real bond. We will definitely be back for return stays--thank you, Gali!!!

Gali was an incredible babysitter to my dog Pixie! She has a gentle, warm demeanor that makes dogs (and owners) instantly comfortable. Pixie loved going to Gali's every day and I loved getting the photos and updates of their adventures together. Gali was a great communicator and went above and beyond in terms of flexibility and generosity. I have an ever-changing work schedule and Gali was always ready to find a solution that worked. I highly, highly recommend!

Gali was SO wonderful with our dog Touhey. He had the best time and we were very relaxed on our trip knowing he was in great hands and we were kept in the loop on their happenings through photos. We live in the neighborhood and run into Gali time to time...Touhey is always so excited to see her! We might need to plan a vacation again so that Touhey can have his with Gali. Truly great!

Gali was great. Posted lots of pictures and was very communicative.
Once again, Gali, you've taken awesome care of my little lady (aka, the Trembling Princess), this time with back-to-back visits! Knowing that she's in your great care and being comfortable in your home, always gives me peace of mind--really, it's priceless. Thank you again! G

This was the first time my 6 months old puppy was in the care of someone that is not family or close friend. During the meet N great, it was clear that Gali was confident and experienced. She agreed to do daycare for 3 days. She's amazing! Communication was excellent - I always knew where they were, what my puppy was doing and she sent pictures. That simply put your mind at easy. She was treating my dog as if it was hers. How great is that? My dog is still a puppy, very frisky, curious, has energy and demands attention. He's lovely, but not an easy task.
I can't thank Gali enough for taking so good care of him. I liked so much that I already booked her services again for next week. :-)

Gali was great! Very thankful that we had her to take care of our pup.
Gali welcomed my dog into her home and made him feel like a part of the family. She kept us updated with lots of photos of his time with her, which eased our minds while we traveled. Will definitely ask her to take care of our pup again.
Once again, Gali, you knocked it out of the (dog) park! :) Thank you for taking wonderful care of my (trembling) princess ;) while I was away. I really value knowing that she has such a great 'second' home! Thank you!
Our dog Louie has stayed with Gali many times, and he is absolutely in love with her! She always sends us pictures of what they are up to, and Louie always looks as if he is having the time of his life. She doesn't live that close to us, and there are other people on dogvacay that would be more convenient, but we keep bring him to Gali because we know that he is so safe and loved when he is with her!

Gali was very professional, courteous, and communicative while our dog was staying with her. She sent us updates throughout his stay with her which allowed me to relax and feel confident that he was doing well in her care. I would highly recommend her!

I could not ask for a better person to watch my dog when I have to leave town than Gali!

She is so intuitive with dogs- you can tell that they are at ease around her.

She's also very prompt responding to emails and texts when you are planning the vacay, which makes booking with her a breeze.

Gali was wonderful with Niko! She took wonderful care of him and kept me posted on how he was doing. I was able to enjoy myself while I was on vacation knowing my little boy was in great hands!
Cousteau had a blast as always! Came home tired and happy.
Gali is amazing! The entire time I was out of town she kept me in the loop with how my dog, Misty was doing, sending cute photos and updates. She always makes Misty (who tends to be a bit anxious) feel at ease. Thanks again Gali!
Just picked up Misty after a five day vacation at Gali's and she did not want to leave! Gali is so loving and attentive that all the dogs feel at ease in her presence. Misty used to be very nervous and anxious when I left her with a sitter but with Gali she is right at home. In addition to be great with pups, Gali is also great at corresponding with me as well. She is super fast at responding to any inquiries and always sends me the cutest photos of her and Misty on their adventures. Now when I leave town or have a long day at work I am at ease knowing that Misty has been left in good hands with Gali :)

We left our beloved (and a little spoiled) cockapoo, Nola, with Gali for a long weekend and could not have been happier or more comfortable with her care for our sweet girl. The meet and greet was outstanding and thorough and Gali was incredibly attentive and conscientious regarding all of Nola's personality "isms". We got amazing photos and updates and felt very in touch the entire time. We would not hesitate to leave her with Gali again!!! Thank you so much!

It's obvious that Gali loves dogs. She was warm and energetic. Our pup's stay didn't end up being a great fit, but she was able to help us coordinate another boarding plan mid-stay.
My dog Teddy had a great stay with Gali. Teddy is a recent rescue and Gali was very sensitive to his needs and quirks. You can tell that she loves animals and has significant experience caring for them. She provides a safe and welcoming home for their stay. I really appreciated receiving her periodic updates and photos. I highly recommend Gali as a host.

Misty felt at ease staying at Galis for the day and had a great time.
Just picked up my dog Misty after she had a four night stay with Gali and it's safe to say that she had a great time! Gali really catered to Misty's personality- spending lots of time cuddling with her at home as well as taking her on daily outings to parks and on walks around the neighborhood. She also kept me in the loop the entire trip with daily pictures and updates and was very prompt with messaging/texts involved in arranging the initial meet up and planning Misty's stay. All in all, Gali was amazing and I will definitely use her again.

Gali was a fantastic host -- I couldn't recommend her more! She was not only extremely accommodating when my flight landed late, but also made sure to give Charlie extra attention during her stay (as she is quite shy when she first meets people she doesn't know).

I will definitely book Gali again in the future!

Gali was amazing!!! Would deft recommend using her!
Gali couldn't have been better. She sent us pics multiple times a day so we felt very comfortable that our dog was doing fine. We could see that she spent lots of time playing with him and taking him out so it seemed like he was very happy. We would definitely use Gali again.

Gali was AWESOME. This was the very first time I 'boarded' my 12-year-old 'puppy' with someone other than immediate family/friends.

Gali was great from the get-go/meet-and-greet. She was personal, professional, and made the whole process very easy.

She consistently posted pics to DogVacay and sent me pics and text via message; all of that made my trip away that much more enjoyable, knowing my dog was in good, trusted hands.

I'll definitely be 'reserving' Gali again in the future—and definitely recommend her to anyone considering DogVacay.

Gali was amazing! It was our first time ever leaving our little baby and I was quite nervous. However, with Gali there was no need to be. Our dog, Louie absolutely loved her! He seemed sad to leave his new friend. She kept us completely up to date with tons of photos, was so quick to respond to all texts, and even gave us some homemade dog treats when we left. We will definitely be using Gali again any time we have to leave our little dog! I couldn't recommend her more highly.

Gali was amazing, as usual! She was very accommodating with my holiday schedule, even with weather delays and messy flight arrivals. She provided regular photo updates and Cousteau was sad to leave her. We will be back again soon!
Gali was a great host!!! She made the transition seamless and was very accommodating during Ozzy's 2 weeks stay. We were delayed at the airport an extra day and she was so sweet to look over our little one. When we picked him up he was so happy and looked like he had a great time. She sent us plenty of pictures and was available for Facetime :) My husband and I would deft. use Gali again.

Gali was a great host to our dog Charleton. The picture updates were frequent and reassuring and we could tell that she enjoyed our dog's company in addition to the fact that he had a great time at her place. Gali was careful to ensure that there was a good dynamic between the other dogs that she hosted and it is clear she goes above and beyond to ensure a good stay for all of her guests. We're happy to have found Gali and look forward to future stays.

I had an excellent experience with Gali. She was a very attentive host, and sent me daily updates along with pictures of Freya having a generally fantastic time. Highly Recommend!
Gali is just amazing! We left our 20 month old Havanese, Brooklyn, with her for a weekend and we could not have made a better decision. Gali sent us numerous updates and pictures which put our minds at peace while we were out of town. Brooklyn also made a doggie friend, Harvey, who she wanted to take home with her when we picked her up. I would recommend Gali to anyone looking for a home for their pet(s) in their absence. Gali, thank you so much!

Gali was a wonderful sitter for Jonathan- he got a ton of attention, and I received tons of updates and photos of my little guy. I think he had a better vacation than me!
Scout had another wonderful stay at Camp Gali! She loves her so much! Thanks, G!
Gali was an incredible host! Our 8 month old puppy Lono had recently been nudered and Gali cared for him like we would have, cone and all! She was extremely professional and sent us pics everyday with updates as to Lono's activities, their walks, and even his eating habits. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Dogvacay host.

Gali is absolutely fantastic! We left our dog with her for 3 nights and he looked like he was having such a wonderful time that we were scared he wasn't going to want to come home with us!! Gali is very sweet, has a clean home and you can tell she truely cares about animals! She sent us multiple pictures and text updates every day and really made us feel worry-free about leaving our dog with her. We have no complaints and will contact her first every time we need someone to watch our dog!

Gali was absolutely incredible in watching our Corgi Tubbins. Starting by coming over to our house and getting to know him and his routine you can immediately tell she is a dog lover. During his time with Gali she made sure to send lots of photos and keep us updated on how he was doing. You could see there was an immediate bond so much so we were nervous he wouldn't miss his parents. We will absolutely use Gali again when we go away.

We had a last minute change of plans and needed to find a dog-walker ASAP. Gali responded to our request right away and put us at ease. She also sent pictures of their walk together. Eva enjoyed her time with Gali and I was so relieved to know that she was in good hands while I was at work.

Gali was amazing! She really took care of Hanoi in the best possible way. She works from home so she was always with him, and took him everywhere.
She kept us informed with pics and messages everyday... I could not be happier! And i recommend her to anyone as she really takes great care of the little guys! Thank you again for everything Gali!

After having not been without our dear (and somewhat high maintenance) Buster since we first adopted him, we finally had to leave him behind for a short trip. Gali's extreme compassion, kind consideration of his special needs and fantastic communication made a potentially traumatic experience a pleasure. If Buster could speak, I'm confident that he would have told us he truly enjoyed his stay with her. Highly recommended.

Cousteau had such a wonderful time with Gali! She really took him in and treated him as her own. I received pictures and updates all weekend about how they did yoga in the mornings, traveled to the park for picnics, played catch on the roof, and went out for dinner in the neighborhood. Gali's apartment is large and airy, and she allowed Cousteau to sleep under the covers in her bed, just like he does when he is at home.

Gali was extremely accommodating with pick up and drop off times and Cousteau was really sad to see her go when we picked him up. Cousteau and Gali will definitely be reunited soon!

Gali was fantastic! She truly cared about my chihuahua Loup, incorporating her into her life and not just leaving her at home alone, and I had pictured every day. She also works from home so I know my dog is always in good company. I will be calling Gali whenever I need a pet sitter again.
Read More...
Scout had such a great vacation with Gali. I highly recommend her. Our plans for Scout fell apart at the last minute and we were very concerned because she has separation anxiety AND she's afraid of dogs. (Other than that, she's a love). Anyway, we met Gali for the meet-and-greet and they fell in love. Deeply and mutually. I had tons of updates (texts/photos) and I felt totally happy and relaxed on my own trip. I can't thank Gali enough. She really loved Scout as though she were her own and put me at ease. My only worry was that she wasn't going to give her back! (She did).
