About Andres

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As a veterinarian living in Fort Greene I love to host four-legged family members in need of a temporary home! My partner and I love all types of dogs and are able to provide a loving home to small or medium breed dogs. We have an 8 year old Brussels Griffon (Max!) who gets along with others very well.

Our 3BR apartment is very safe, animal friendly and comfortable with plenty of room to relax. We frequent Fort Greene Park during walks and often take strolls to Prospect Park. There is always time during the day allocated to walks, play, and naps! We like to provide a fun, energetic and very safe atmosphere that your pup will feel at home in and enjoy.

As a vet I can provide very attentive care to your pet’s needs, including giving any type of medication. You will be able to rest easy knowing your loved one is in capable hands! My partner's work schedule is flexible so we are usually able to schedule ourselves so the dogs are not home along more then a couple of hours.

We specialize in the distinctive needs of Brussels Griffons, but care for all!

24 hour supervision is available most weekends.

Max, Andres, and Rysia are the best hosts! Wally had a great time at his second stay and they are wonderful about communicating prior and during the stay (including realizing the app wasn't sending photos - we got them via text which was great). We really appreciate them!!!
Andres and Rysia were friendly and responsive. They texted us and sent us pictures of our dog. We knew he was in good, caring hands.
Andres, Rysia & Max were wonderful hosts for Wally! He can be a bit challenging with new people but they were so patient and understood our (neurotic, overprotective) tips; he was relaxed and happy the first day. They were great about communication, flexible with the drop off/pick up and sent fun photos him making himself at home. We think Wally misses them already!
I can't say enough about these guys. They are responsible and flexible, and treat our dog like their own. I'd love to never go on another dogvacay except for them!
Andres and Rysia were wonderful hosts for Jack. As an older dog with three legs, Jack has some special needs. Andres and Rysia took great care of him and he was very happy during his stay. They even gave my wife and I some veterinary advice which was valuable b/c they had spent so much time with Jack. We would highly recommend Andres and Rysia.
Wonderful hosts! They took great care of our very very excitable puppy Leeloo and updated us with photos during the evening. And their dog (Max) is very sweet!
Andres and Rysia were the best hosts to Stevie! We had a great meet and greet in Fort Greene park and Stevie and Max got on very well! I loved getting pics and messages from Rysia on request! Thank you both - Stevie's first trip away from home was definitely a success!
:) I would definitely recommend them to my friends. It was our first time to have Ruby stay at someone else's home and they sent us pictures to comfort us. Ruby is little sensitive but he was able to settled in and find Rysia as replacement mom.
Andres was awesome! He and his girlfriend kept my sweet Tootie nice and comfortable and when she had some tummy issues they new exactly what to do. Andres even followed up the next day to make sure Tootie was feeling better. I felt much better having a vet taking care of my pup.

Andres was great - i booked really last minute and he met my dog (simone) the evening before i was leaving town. and, she stayed there the next 4 days. it was also a holiday weekend.

Simone seemed to love staying there. Andres kept me updated with photos and texts to let me know how everything was going.

I really appreciate how nice he was and how happy simone was when i picked her up.
I could not have picked a more amazing host ! I have 2 special needs fur balls - one nearly blind and both older and requiring special care, including medication. I was gone for an entire month, and in that time it was apparent that Andres took the time to truly see and appreciate their unique personality traits and made sure to accommodate their little quirks and needs. I dont think I could have left them with anyone else that would have so overtly tried to sensitively address each of them as unique beings... and truly love them. :) Having someone so dedicated to the care of animals allowed me to relax on my trip.

I am so thankful I found dogvacay (first time using this site) and Andres !!
We were very happy with our experience with Andres. This was our first time using Dog Vacay, and it was nice to know Wilbur was with someone more qualified than us! All dogs and humans got along great, and it was altogether relaxing and non-stressful getting things set up. Andres sent us some text pics of our happy doggie while we were away, and he was super flexible when our flight got delayed and we got in much later than expected. Great experience overall!
When I thought of my dog being boarded at a kennel I just thought of him being miserable in his crate thinking he was there because he did something wrong.
I tried DogVaycay and I'm glad I did. Frankie's host family (Andres and Rysia) gave me text photo updates of Frankie for the four days I was away, and they were very accommodating when I was super late picking him up when the airports in NYC, NJ and PA were shut down due to weather (the situation could have been crazy more stressful, but they didn't add to it). When I picked up Frankie he was peppy and happy. I felt that not only was he well cared for but he had a bit of a vacation of his own.
Andres and Rysia were a great match for us. We'd ask them to watch our dog again in the future.
