About Franklin

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a semi-retired man and have plenty of time to be with and take care of your pets. Our apartment is sunny and spacious with a big green park area right downstairs and Chelsea Piers a short walk away. I grew up with both a cat and dog and over the years have had much experience with pet-sitting.
On a typical day I wake at 6am and take out the dog for a walk. We come home and the dog is fed and I leave the house at 7:30am and come back btw 9 and 10am. Meanwhile my wife is in the house til about 9am or later. I walk the dog again at mid-day, late afternoon, evening and before we go to bed. The dog is never alone more than 2 hours at any time during the day.

Frank has 60+ years experience taking care of dogs. He will provide your dog or cat with a warm, calm and relaxed environment. He lives in a high-rise building which features a large picture window with views of the Hudson River and the trees outside. Frank has reported that both dogs and cats enjoy the view.

Frank has a roommate who also loves animals. He typically takes dogs for walks four times a day. He is home most of the day and has plenty of time for pets and cuddles.

Frank especially loves small dogs and and would be a great host for someone looking for a quiet, relaxed environment for their cat or dog!
Franklin took care of my corgi Mimi for a little over a week while I was out of the country, and Mimi had a great time. He did a terrific job making Mimi feel comfortable, and he also took her out on a ton of walks, which was awesome. Thanks!
