About Stefanie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I started my pet sitting business in 1996 and have had the pleasure of meeting many incredible pets along the way. I would love to spend time with yours!
Aside from pet sitting I have had many years of experience with animals. I have worked in a vet's office, at the Bronx Zoo and gone to the NY School of Dog Grooming. I have also rescued stray animals and have been on the board of directors of a local animal shelter.
My home is completely dog friendly with a nice fenced in yard. I only use only organic cleaning products. I also enjoy taking the dogs on hikes at nearby trails.
I have a friendly pug who will enjoy meeting your pup.

Our dog, George, had a wonderful time at Stefanie's! It was his first time away and thanks to Stef, he relaxed and settled in. He made some new doggie friends and enjoyed the yard, the couch and the treats! Stefanie gave us daily updates along with photos, which was very appreciated! All in all ,a terrific experience and we wholeheartedly recommend Stefanie! So does George

We couldn't have asked for a better home for our dog, Betty, during our time away! Stefanie was extremely professional and knowledgeable through the whole process before Betty's stay, making sure she was thoroughly prepared from everything from Betty's favorite treats to her sleeping and eating habits and how she interacts with different types of dogs. During Betty's vacation at Stefanie's, we received regular picture updates of our happy girl. Betty loved the big yard, as well as the chance to socialize and play with the other friendly dogs Stefanie regularly dog-sits. We would highly, highly recommend Stefanie - she has so much experience with animals, and Betty's comfort and happiness was such a priority to her during her stay. We didn't have to worry about a thing! Betty came home happy, along with a few new doggy friends :) Stefanie's home is also extremely dog friendly, with lots of toys, cushions and beds for them to lay on and make themselves feel at home.

I highly recommend Stef! I have two older pugs, one of which is blind and going deaf. Stef went out of her way to make my dogs feel safe and comfortable. She is very loving and caring to all of her dogs. She has a wonderful double fenced in backyard which my girls loved. I would definitely leave my pups with her in the future!

Stefanie is a dream come true. Seriously, she's an angel for me and my boys. I drop them off at daycare every day and she keeps them safe, happy, and engaged for as long as 12 hours. She is flexible, kind, generous, and really skilled with the dogs.

I'm a dog trainer in the area and I interviewed 7 different dog walkers and daycare centers prior to selecting Stefanie. She was so obviously the best option at the best price.

My dogs love going there. Each morning, I say "Let's go see Stef!" and they run and jump into the car. We get to her house and they run in, excited to see Stef and their friends.

I cannot recommend her more highly.

I was comfortable leaving Portia with Stefanie over the weekend. She really seems to love dogs and that's important to us. She kept us updated and sent pictures. Portia was exhausted when she came home, which is a good sign that she had lots of fun while we were away.
Thanks so much Stefanie!

I couldn't have been happier with the wonderful care Stefanie took of my pugs. She was very accomidating and gave them lots of love. She sent me daily email updates with photos of my pugs which I was very grateful for. I wish I lived closer to her because I would be thrilled to leave my boys with her again! I recommend Stefanie VERY highly.

I felt so comfortable leaving my two "boys"- Augie, a black lab, and Monkey, a German Shepard, after having our meet and greet. Stephanie is calm, caring and extremely accommodating. They were able to run around a good size yard, and settle down inside a "home." Stephanie also sent me pictures while I was away. I would not hesitate for a second to entrust her with our dogs in the future.

Stefanie was super kind, professional, and had a home that was very well set up for doggie daycare and boarding. While I usually prefer a place that only takes small dogs (as my small dog gets a bit intimidated by bigger dogs), it was a great solution for a last-minute trip I was taking out of town. The dogs Stefanie had all seemed well behaved and my Lucy did find a few she really liked with whom she would play. Stefanie was also really great at sending me lots of photos and updates on my baby, as I am always very anxious leaving her. It gave me a lot of comfort that she was doing OK.

Stefanie was wonderful! She is truly a dog lover. Harley Rose was well taken care of under her watchful eye. She sent me email updates along with pics of Harley playing. Her home is very dog friendly, roomy and safe. I feel very comfortable leaving my pup with Stefanie.
