About Sarah and John

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are both huge dog lovers who unfortunately do not own one at this time. Both of us grew up with many dogs, have lots of experience taking care of dogs, and will treat your pups with as much love as we would give our own! We will only book one dog at a time, unless you have 2 that live together.

Both of our work schedules are fairly flexible which allows us both to work from home 3-4 days/week. We are very responsible and will take great care of your pup while you're away. We have a car if you would like to schedule pick up/drop off, or in case of any emergencies.

Our apartment is located in the Hecht Warehouse apartments in Ivy City. The building is brand new, safe, and secure (24 hr concierge) but does have some breed restrictions, so unfortunately we may not be able to accommodate all breeds anymore. If your dog is social, there is a dog park terrace in my building, and we have many friends with pooches to schedule play dates and go on hikes. But, if your dog prefers to hang out all day or go on solo walks that is great too! There is a Petco located down the street in case we need to pick up something for your pup, or if you would like them to have something special.

Please message us with any questions!

Terrific! Was very convenient and a perfect fit!
Sarah was a great. She gave us weekly updates and enjoyed taking care of our Sophie. Sarah played with Sophie and was very professional. We will definitely come back to Sarah and John for our future dog sitting needs.
We need a dog sitter at the last minute and Sarah and John were available and exceptionally accommodating. Peyton was so happy when we picked her up!
I anticipate using them again in the near future.
Sarah and John are great! My dog gets endless playtime at the dog park and they even picked up extra food when I had to extend by an extra day. Excellent communication as well. Highly recommended.
Sarah was an excellent host. She was very responsive from our meet-n-greet to our pup's actual stay - and she sent us an update while we were away to let us know how our pup was doing. I would definitely recommend friends to Sarah.
Our dog looked healthy and happy when we picked her up!
Sarah was great! I was nervous about leaving Maggie with a stranger for the first time and she seemed to be well adjusted and happy. Sarah shared some photos over the weekend that confirmed this. She was excited to come home but clearly tuckered out from an exciting weekend!
Sarah and John were fantastic hosts! Quick to respond to texts and flexible with the pickup time. My dog had a terrific time!
Sarah was great!
Sarah and John were great with Merlin!! They accomdated us having a really late flight in on our last night and wanting to do a late pickup as well. They sent pictures, videos and texts the whole time we were gone. Merlin can be leash reactive and they were great handling that as well. Merlin was exhausted when he came home, which is a sign he had a great time too! We will definitely be requesting them for future stays.
Sarah was a great host for Daisy. Very accommodating!
Sarah was amazing with Blue and sent great pictures while we were away. She even made her homemade treats!
Thanks for taking such good care of my Myla - we'll definitely be back!
She took great care of my puppy and made sure that he had a lot of activity and love over the entire weekend. He came home happy as can be!
Sarah was great! She was very accommodating and kept in constant contact by providing pictures and updates on how Oliver was doing. We will definitely be requesting Sarah for future stays.
Sarah's the best.
Sarah is wonderful!! Just 2 weeks after we picked up our mini golden doodle puppy, Stella, we had a death in the family and had to leave town and couldn't take her with. Sarah happily agreed to watch our 10 week old puppy, which is no easy feat. She sent pictures, gave updates, and truly put us at ease. We brought our crate to Sarah's apartment, and Sarah was kind of enough to drop off our puppy, huge crate at all, at our apartment so she was waiting for us when we got home! Stella was calm, relaxed, and happy. Absolutely no signs of stress whatsoever. Sarah really went above and beyond. We had emailed her after for a follow up, to which she provided us a thorough rundown of her time with Stella. She truly loves dogs, evidenced by our puppy having accidents on her floor with zero complaints from Sarah! She is super affordable. We will absolutely ask Sarah to watch Stella again!!
Our dog Lucy loved her second stay with Sarah. I just picked her up and she's all tuckered out, which is a great sign. She clearly feels very comfortable with her! Sarah has always communicated very quickly, and is always great about being flexible about drop-off and pick-up times.
Sarah was amazing to work with. I am very happy that I left my 12 week old puppy with her. Sarah was very accommodating and willing to work with my schedule. She even sent me pictures of my puppy throughout his stay with her. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs someone to watch their pet. I am very confident that she will take great care of your loving furry family member.
I had a last minute conference that I needed to attend, and Sarah was very responsive with my reservation request. She was extremely positive and was great with Sofi. She also worked with my weird drop-off and pick-up times. Overall I would say Sofi had a fantastic time and I would have her as a host anytime. Thanks Sarah!
Sarah is awesome. Very easy to work with. When I returned home I couldn't tell Gabby was away. She was calm and not stressed at all. Thank you very much Sarah.
Our dog Lucy loved her stay with Sarah! Sarah sent us a picture update and even took Lucy out to a rescue dog fundraiser with her. We will definitely be asking for a return visit soon!
Sarah lives in the most pet friendly building I've ever seen. She was also very patient with all my requests while hosting Greta - I'm quite overprotective of my puppy!
She was easy to communicate with and took very good care of my "daughter". Greta got back home calm, sweet and playful, which means that she had a good time with Sarah. I recommend her as a dog host and will hire her again in a heartbeat.
Our dogs had a great time with Sarah!! So much in fact that one of my dogs wanted to stay with her when it was time to go home! :) Sarah was great about responding and letting us know how our boys were doing. She was also very accommodating when we were delayed and had to pick the boys up late. We would highly recommend Sarah for your dogvacay.
Sarah is great! She was so flexible with pick-ups and drop-offs, and took great care of our pup. Booking her again as we speak!
Sarah T was great! She was very responsive to all questions. She event sent a picture of our dog enjoying the snow. I would highly recommend her services.
Sarah was great to work with. She was very friendly and responsive to my specific requests for dog-boarding.

Because of my flight schedule, we made arrangements for her to come pick up my pup from my house and drop him back off at the end of his stay - she informed me when she picked him up and also when she safely dropped him off so I could remain worry-free on my vacation. Couldn't be happier with Sarah!
So, firstly, this was our first time using this site or personal dog sitting in general.
Sarah was great. She sent us a pic of our doggy while he was in her care. She had no problems with him. That's important to us because he is a ginormous young dog. When we showed up to pick him up, he wasn't wanting to leave her. That means that he really liked being with her. I would hire her again without hesitation.
I am glad to have this alternative to a boarding our beloved Udo at a kennel.
Sarah was great to work with! She was flexible with my last-minute reservation, and she took great care of Rocco and Cooper. I will definitely book with her again!
