About Chris

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a passionate and hard-working dog lover from New York who also works from home with plenty of flexibility for your pet! I live in Sunnyside Gardens surrounded by Woodside, Long Island City, Sunnyside, and Astoria in Queens. I've had dogs my entire life and have trained and cared for them from puppy to senior with great success. As of right now, for the first time in my life, I do not own a dog of my own so I have plenty of love to give yours!

Since I work remotely from home I'm easily able to spend quality time with your dog, it'll feel like you never left! I can also relocate to your home or wherever your dog is most comfortable. We all know how much our dogs hate when we leave, the comfort of a human friend in the room makes a huge difference to a dog. I'm able to drop by for a visit, take them for a walk, spend some time with them, provide daycare while you're at work, or hang with them overnight while you're away.

Feel free to message me to discuss your situation!

Chris did a fantastic job staying at our apartment and looking after our dog and cats. He gave us constant updates, pictures and videos of our pup to put us at ease and made sure he got lots of exercise, attention and love.
Chris did a great job watching our dog and cat in our apartment. He was very responsive from the first time I contacted him right up until we came home. He was happy to meet me and my dog before I booked the sitting, and they got along instantly. He sent us photo updates throughout our trip, and made sure our dog and cat were ok without us. Thank you Chris, for a job well done!

Our toy poodle Ti-Henna had never been away from home without us, so we were a bit nervous about finding someone to take care of her when we had to go out of town for 8 days. No worries -- she had a wonderful time with Chris. Chris sent daily photos & updates (yes, we are helicopter owners) & we could see that she was having a great time. Not only did he meet with us all beforehand, he had the (very sweet) dog who would be there during the day meet her too, to ensure they'd be compatible. While she was glad to see us come home, she was rather disappointed to leave Chris! We can recommend him unconditionally to anyone who wants their dog to get loads of attention, exercise -- Chris lives near an excellent dog run with a separate area for smaller dogs -- & care.

Chris is great! Harper gets so excited and pulls towards his apartment whenever we get close. He is very attentive and accommodating.
Chris has a very calm and undeniably friendly manner about him. From our meet and greet I knew I could trust him with my beloved doxie, Roxy. He kept me updated throughout the stay and showed genuine concern on what to look out for, as she has a bad back. My apartment seemed cleaner than when I left it! Roxy and I thank you for a great stay! Highly recommended!!

Great! Kept me updated the entire stay. Also took my dog on a lot of our door activities that kept her anxiety of being away from home low. I'd definitely recommend Chris!
Chris is an awesome sitter! He provided updates and photos daily. I believe my chihuahua Sam really missed him when he returned home!
At first I was uneasy about leaving my baby with someone other than the family. Chris was kind and patient and gave me updates on Left Eye, I felt anxious about being away from her. I'm pleased
Chris is a kind, dog-loving individual. He was very accommodating to Shep's needs and flexible with his schedule. I would definitely recommend Chris!
My dog has separation anxiety so he needs someone who's always around and very attentive, that's Chris. He calmed my worries (I've never given my baby to a dog sitter who wasn't family or a friend) and made sure to send me pictures while I was gone. I've already booked another vacay and will surely be using his services for a long time to come.

Chris was very quick to respond to my emails and was able to provide my dog with the extra attention he needs since he works from home and has roommates. He also provided daily photo updates which was great and judging from his updates, my dog seemed very comfortable and happy!
