About Sally (& Matt)

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We're Sally and Matt and we are here to help! I manage a jewelry store on Madison Avenue and Matt works at his own healthcare startup, so we have flexible schedules. We both had and loved our childhood dogs, Matt had a black Lab and I had yellow Lab and a Beagle! As you can see we are fans of Labs :) but love all different types of dogs! We have watched many different breeds for our friends in the city. We live in a spacious 1 bedroom in the heart of Alphabet City, which is only a 2 minute walk to Tompkins Square Park! We are both very active and go on daily runs, and we are happy to bring your dog along on the run, if he/she is up for it! Regardless if your dog is a track star, we will walk your dog a minimum of 3 times during an overnight stay. Once in the AM, once in the afternoon and once again in the PM to make sure your dog is well exercised and happy! We will make sure to treat your dog just as if she/he is our own.

We look forward to meeting you and your loved one!

Sally & Matt are a sweet, responsible, young couple looking to watch dogs to fill their home with a little extra love. They live in a comfortable 1-bedroom apartment (with an elevator in the building!) that has lot's of cuddling surfaces & playtime space.

They are both very obviously dog lovers. Since they have been watching their friend's dogs, they decided to give DogVacay a shot! Matt & Sally love to go for runs. With the east river in such close proximity, your pup can get lots of fresh air and sunshine. Their building is also only a 2 minute walk to Tompkins Square Park, which is great for dog park playtime.

I brought my dog, Ellie, to meet them, and I could tell she was comfortable and at ease. I highly recommend Matt and Sally, and look forward to leaving my pup with them the next time I go out of town!

Sally and Matt were wonderful! After a last minute cancellation from another sitter, they were easy to work with and prompt to set up a last minute meet and greet. You could instantly see their love for dogs. They were very accommodating to Darcy's med needs and routines to keep her happy. They also took her on runs to help release her anxiety. Darcy was happy when I got her and it was great to take a trip knowing she was in good hands.

Matt & Sally were super attentive and caring to our pup! They send us daily updates of their activities and it's always something fun and dog related. You can tell they put a lot of effort in making sure our puppy was loved and happy! Will definitely consider having our pup stay with Matt & Sally again!

Sally & Matt are the best sitters we've ever had for our 2 golden doodles, Jack & Millie! Not only were they taken care of, they were entertained and kept busy. They went to doggie meet ups, were in the park every day several times, and they even went to a "doggie bar-b-que" in Brooklyn. Sally & Matt sent us the most amazing photos each day. We arrived home to 2 happy smiling golden doodles. We will definitely use Sally & Matt again!!!!!!!!!!

They took great care of Heidi and sent some cute updates for me while I was away!
Sally and Matt were awesome. Our pup Annie can be a little bit shy and sometimes it takes a bit of time for her to warm up to people. It being her first time staying overnight at a host's place, I was also a paranoid mommy. Sally and Matt were very patient with her (and me). They sent us daily updates. Seeing Annie all relaxed and happy in her vacay home was the highlight of my day. They gave her tons of cuddles and attention. When we went to pick her up, we could tell Annie had a great time. One week after her stay, we took her to the dog park and a couple came in that looked kind of like Sally and Matt, Annie ran over wiggling her tails thinking they were her host parents. It was really cute. It shows that she really liked them and her stay. We will definitely board her with Sally and Matt again when we go out of town.

Sally & Matt were great with Bradley! They were very thorough with getting all information and instructions needed for watching Bradley. I felt very secure leaving Bradley in their hands. Bradley really enjoyed staying with them and I will definitely book with them again!

Banjo was well taken care of while I was away for a week. I plan on having him stay with Sally and Matt again in the future.
Matt and Sally looked after my 6 month old pup Matilda like she was their own, which is not an easy feat! Matilda has lots of energy and they took her to the dog park and for long walks every day. They were patient even when she had little accidents, sent me photos every day so I could see all the fun she was having, and kept me posted via text messages the whole time. I honestly think Matilda misses them now she's home! I would not hesitate to have her stay with Matt and Sally again.

Sally and Matt were great to our little pup. She is very afraid of strange men. I dropped her off with Matt and was a little concerned with how she would react to him. She had very little reservations and walked right up to him. He definitely has a way with dogs. They both clearly care for animals. I would definitely use them again.

Sally and Matthew are such a great couple! They watched my two dogs for a week and they came home happy and relaxed. They have an amazing apartment that was very clean and organized and is even located next to a dog park. They followed all my specific instructions and handled my 5-month-old puppy like a pro! I would definitely request their services again for my next vacation!

Sally and Matt were incredible! They met us beforehand to get to know our dog, they showed us the nearby dog park where they would be taking her to play. While we were away we got amazing updates and photos of Delilah having a blast with them. They are friendly, professional and amazing people! We cannot wait for them to babysit Delilah again, she was in great hands! I highly recommend them!

Sally and Matt are amazing hosts! Over a multi day stay, they took my dog Calypso for runs and lots of long adventure walks. They sent me photos of her and we're all around fantastic both in taking care of her and in communicating with me.
