Offering overnight sitting in your home for Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and select Nassau County locations. I can also host small dogs in my own home. Additional services available. Please contact me for details.
My experience with dogs goes back to when I was a toddler. Growing up on a farm in a rural village, I made quick friends with all the animals. The dogs followed me everywhere I went! Having come to the city later, during my teenage years, I often dog sat for family and friends. As an adult, I frequently help neighbors with walking and checking in on their dogs. I have taken care of all sorts of fish, parrots, hamsters, guinea pigs, cats and more.
Your dog will enjoy frequent bathroom breaks and nice long walks.
