Hi Dog Parents!
I'm Arielle. I have been caring for dogs ever since I got my first puppy at 8 years old. Since I've lived in the city, I have watched many dogs for friends and through other similar websites (also have a profile on Rover). One day I will certainly get my own dog, but until then I am here for yours!
I live with my boyfriend so we will both be here to hang out with your dog. He is also a huge dog lover (duh, because I wouldn't be with anyone who isn't!) We love all types of dogs; old, young, big, small, long hair, short hair, black, white, spotted... you get the point! I do have a love for large breeds though, just because I have always grown up with large breeds.
What your dog would do while staying with me:
Your dog would be free to hang out in my apartment wherever. Usually when we have a dog over, we just put a sheet on the couch so the dog can feel free to hang on the couch with us. I usually take dogs out ~5 times a day. The McCarren dog park is near me, so we will go there if you are okay with dog parks. I also have a nice rooftop that is good for dogs, and I'll hang there during the day in nice weather. Since I am pretty much always home, your dog will receive attention all day.
About me other than in doggie context: I am a graduate student, so my schedule is super flexible. I work in computational biology, so I am a data/coding/bio nerd. Also super into reading about startups and a huge fiction lover.
Looking forward to meeting you and your dog! :-)
