About Robert

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Rob and I'm a pediatric doctor who loves dogs. I've been a dog lover my entire life and grew up with a Maltese, a Yorkshire terrier, and a Kooikerhondje. Pets boarded in my home are treated as though they are my own; they will receive lots of attention and, weather permitting, will spend lots of time outdoors. I will make sure all of their needs are met, with at least 3 walks per day and lots of mental stimulation.

I live with my girlfriend, Claire, who will also help take care of your pup, including meals and/or walks. One of us is almost always home. We're also available to meet you for a Meet-and-Greet prior to dog daycare or boarding. Please click on the "Ask Host a Question" or the "Request a Meet and Greet" buttons if you want services other than overnight boarding.

Our apartment is a spacious 850+ square foot one bedroom. It's on the first floor of a doorman building, so your dog doesn't have to worry about climbing stairs. The apartment is within 2 blocks of Carnegie Hill Veterinarians and the Bobby Wagner Walk (perfect for long dog walks), and within 5 blocks of Carl Schurz Park. On nice days, I like to take dogs across Ward's Island Bridge to Randalls Island.

If there's anything else you may need that is not listed on my profile, contact me and I'll see if it can be arranged. You can rest assured that your dog or will be in safe, loving hands!

Robert will be a great host for your pup! He lives on the first floor of a very large one bedroom apartment in a doorman building, so your dog won't have to worry about climbing any stairs or cramped spaces.

Robert grew up with a dog and lives near lots of parks for your dog to play in. He is good at updating his DogVacay schedule frequently because of his ever-changing work schedule. I believe Robert will make a fantastic DogVacay host for your dog!

Robert was great! We feel so lucky to have found him to help us with Layla. I just wish he'd give up his day job and do this full time:) I hope that he will be available next time Layla needs some company. Thank you Robert!
Robert and Claire watched Charlie Parker for 3 days while we were on vacation. Charlie is normally a sweet, but nervous dog, and he had a great time with them. They spoiled him by taking him for long walks in the park, played fetch repeatedly, gave him belly rubs, and let him sleep in their bed! They were super accommodating to our schedule, and they sent us pictures twice a day updating us on his activities. Will be using them again!

If I could give 100 stars I would. Rob and his girlfriend Clair are simply amazing. My dog was happy, energetic and learned a new trick. Also, Rob sent great updates and loved Soco like his own pet. Honestly, I don't want anyone else to watch my dog. Rob is such a great and honest sitter---- and is a true dog lover. You can't find anyone better. Thanks Rob! You made us feel so comfortable on our vacation! A+++++
