I'm Lauren--a Michigan Wolverine now living and working in Flatiron. I grew up in Atlanta with an adorable Maltese, so I have lots of experience with small dog care. I've volunteered with multiple animal shelters, including Atlanta Pet Rescue in Georgia, and Bideawee here in the city.
My apartment is very pet friendly and perfect for small dogs. It's a doorman/elevator building so no need to worry about stairs. Some of my favorite breeds are Shih Tzus, Maltese, Havanese, French Bulldogs, Bichons, Cocker Spaniels, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Poodles, and Poodle mixes. I prefer not to take on young puppies unless they're already house trained.
My favorite dog friendly activities include couch cuddles and fun walks in Madison Sq Park (only a 5 minute walk from my apartment). If your dog is a lap dog/snuggle bug, I'm your girl--they're sure to get spoiled with belly rubs and lots of love. I also read a lot for work, so they will always have a place with me on my couch while I devour manuscripts. I also read outside, so we can sit on a bench in the park and people watch in between our walks around Flatiron.
For walks, I am available for a full hour. For day sitting, I am available for 1-4 hours at a time.
