About Hilary

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Hilary and I have 10+ years of pet care experience. I grew up in a house full of animals & carried that tradition on with me into my adult life. My menagerie has always included cats & dogs, and I feel a home is not complete without the companionship of a pet.

In addition to being a pet owner, I have worked for both the Cat Network and The Humane Society of Greater Miami-Dade as a volunteer and as a foster parent. I have fostered neonatals as well as post-surgery recoveries. In fact, 2 of my pets have been day old fosters that quickly became part of my family.

Presently, there are no animals who live with me, which means your loved one/ones would have free reign! I live in a spacious 2 bedroom just blocks away from Prospect Park & right off the Park Shuttle. It is an excellent location for early morning walks, a leisurely stroll or an active session of catch out at the park. I work 2 - 3 nights a week at a restaurant/lounge in the city & am therefore home throughout the day. Depending on your needs & my schedule, I may not take any pets on nights that I am working.

My apartment may not accommodate senior dogs as I am located on the 3rd floor & there is no elevator.

Hilary was an awesome host. She was flexible, responsible and in constant communication with me, sending me adorable pics of my pup and patiently answering all the neurotic questions I texted her while I was away. Hilary also administered medication to my pup with no problem whatsoever. I am already booking my next reservation with her!
Kisses is our gorgeous rescue we got when we lived in Singapore. We moved to NYC a little under 2 years ago and brought Kisses with us. Coupled with being abused previously and the long journey here, Kisses is understandably very nervous. We always get just as nervous when we board her but not when we got Hilary to look after her for a few days! Kisses came home happy and calm and not stressed at all with being away from home. Our whole family and Kisses of course, loved Hilary. She went way above and beyond what we expected in taking care and loving our pooch and we will definitely be returning customers. Plus, our flight was terribly delayed on our way back but we had a very understanding Hilary who had no problem with us picking Kisses up close to midnight on the day we arrived home. If we could rate Hilary with a 100 stars, we would!
We never left our dogs with anyone before. The both suffer from anxiety issues. We never trusted them with anyone and we are so grateful to have found Hilary. From the first time we met Hilary we new we picked the perfect person to take care of our dogs. We received photo and updates daily and although it made me miss them even more, it also gave us confidence that they were in good hands. Lucky and Lola seemed so happy when we picked them up. She also keep the dogs on the schedule that we gave her.

Thank you so much for treating lucky and Lola like they were one of your own. Our dogs mean the world to us and Hilary thank you so very much for all the love hugs, kiss, snuggle and and chats with the dogs.
Hilary was great! She watched my dog Pacino for 3 days on somewhat short notice and was extremely communicative the entire time. Even when she got booked with another dog she let me know and made sure everything was okay between them. I would totally be fine with Hilary watching him again.
Very flexible in setting up a meeting time. Our dog, Harlem, seemed very happy and taken care of during his stay. Her apartment has enough room for large dogs to roam. Sent daily pictures and kept us informed. Highly recommend
Hilary was absolutely wonderful! She was great with my dog and amazing at keeping this worried mom updated. I have already booked her again for our next trip!
Hilary was absolutely awesome. She met Charley in her own environment so that she could really get to know all her quirks and was super flexible about pick-up and drop-off. She sent tons of pics so that I could see how much fun Charley was having, which gave me piece of mind and made my vacay much more enjoyable. It was so nice to know that Hilary was completely comfortable with a dog who can be a bit challenging and she really took the time to understand her needs and even gave me a few awesome suggestions for behavioral modification for the future.
Hilary was very attentive and very knowledgable. She was great with Charlotte and sent us picture updates every day while we were away, which really helped because we missed her like crazy!
Charlotte had a great experience with Hilary and had lots of walks and a ton of fun. Will definitely leave her with Hilary in the future if and when we need to go away for a few days :)
Hilary was a great host for Biff! I can tell he had a fun time with her. She was very diligent in asking about any and all concerns I had, as well as providing proper care for him. He had suffered a minor back injury a few weeks ago, and she made sure to accommodate some special needs of his as a result.

There was another dog staying with her at the time, and I was impressed when she mentioned that she is sure to keep feeding and toy playtime separate so that there are no aggression issues between two dogs.

I hope to use her again in the future!
