About Tina & John

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Are you looking for your dog to receive loving and attentive care while you're away? Would your pup love access to our PRIVATE backyard? Please learn a little more about us below and contact us if you have any additional questions!

-- ABOUT US --
We're Tina and John, and we love dogs of all breeds and ages. We miss having dogs of our own but can't currently commit to adopting one, so DogVacay is a great way for us to spend time with furry friends! We are responsible, loving, patient, and fun. Your dog's care, safety, and comfort are our top priorities, and we aim to provide every dog with the amount of attention and love we would give our own!

John currently works from home, so your pup would have plenty of company and affection during the day. Tina works regular 9-6 hours but loves being home evenings and weekends with furry guests. In his free time, John is a fantasy football enthusiast and enjoys playing touch football and rugby, while Tina enjoys doing yoga and curling up on the couch with a good book.

-- OUR HOME --
We live in a spacious, ground floor 1 bedroom apartment in the amazing neighborhood of Park Slope. We have a PRIVATE, fully fenced-in backyard where your pup can play and romp around, and your dog will also be taken on walks to beautiful Prospect Park (about a 15 minute walk away). Our apartment is smoke-free and easily accessible from Atlantic Terminal (B/Q/2/3/4/5/D/N/R) or the Bergen St. (2/3) subway stops. There are also 2 different veterinary clinics located just a 5 minute walk away (Prospect Heights Animal Hospital & BluePearl Veterinary Partners).

-- OUR CARE --
We currently don't have any pets of our own and are only accepting one reservation at a time, so your pup will receive plenty of love and attention from us! We will walk your dog at least 3x everyday, with longer walks on the weekends. Your dog will also be able to spend ample time in our backyard, especially when the weather is nice; it's a great space for games of fetch!

We know you'll be thinking about your pup while you're away, so you'll receive plenty of photo/video updates from us. Your pups will have free roam of our apartment, and they are welcome to sleep wherever they would like. We ask that all of our guests be fully housebroken.

Prior to making a reservation, please schedule a Meet and Greet by clicking "Request Free Meet-n-Greet" in the top right corner of our profile! They will be hosted at our apartment so you can see where your pup will be staying.

Tina and John are a fantastic couple who live in a spacious and clean apartment with a wonderful fenced-in backyard. In addition, they are also close to Prospect Park!

Both Tina and John have experience with dogs but currently don't have a pup of their own, which means plenty of walks to the park and tons of love and attention for you fur-baby. :)

Tina and John would do an incredible job hosting your dog!
From now on when I think about the perfect sitters for our dog Lucca, Tina and John will come to mind. They were so loving and passionate about caring for Lucca. We received mountains of photos depicting their park walks, playtime, lounging around, and joyous jawing on dog toys. Next time we have a trip planned Tina and John will be the first ones we contact.
Wonderful experience with Tina & John. They took excellent care of our pup (Murray) and shared tons of pictures. Murray had a blast and got great exercise. We look forward to booking Murray's next stay!
Tina & John were the perfect hosts to our 50 pound (6 year old) baby Mina. From the meet n greet to the pick up at the end, there was constant communication and everything went smoothly. During Mina's stay, we were kept up-to-date about what she was doing and how she was doing. Pictures with texts were sent often, which kept us smiling and oohing and ahhhing while we were away. John brought her on multiple walks a day and indulged us/her with all of our/her special requests from belly rubs to sleeping in the bed at night. John and Tina are clearly dog lovers who treat your dog like their own. They are exactly what you are looking for when you have to leave your precious pup while you are away. Without hesitation we would recommend John and Tina to others. A million thanks- Tina & John! You are both wonderful and we appreciate how well you took care of Mina.
