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.

Stefanie was a godsend!

We had just moved to a new area, didn't have any friends nearby and the whole family was going on vacation overseas. I found Stef to visit my elderly cat once a day, give her medication, feed her and clean her litter area.

Stef came to my house for a meet and greet, she listened attentively as I explained the routine to her in detail and she took down notes in her book. She introduced herself to my cat, Leeza. We both immediately felt comfortable with her.

I received a stream of daily pictures of Leeza, as well as the food that was given to her and the food that remained from the previous day (so that I could keep track of her eating). But Stef went above and beyond the routine she wrote down in her notebook - she also gave Leeza lots of cuddles and spent extra time with her. I came home after a week to find a calm and happy kitty - the proof is in the pudding! What more could I ask.

I trust Stef completely with my old, sick and defenseless little kitty and I trust her in my home. If you are lucky enough to live in Stef's area - look no further. I feel lucky that I found *my* sitter on the first try.

Stef even gave Leeza a present! A brush, which Leeza has been enjoying more than the comb we used before. I am so grateful for the love and affection you have given my cat, who is so precious to me. Thank you, Stef!

Stef is great. She really understood Max and his quirks. From the photos she sent it looked like Max had a great time.
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
