About Jose

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day. Note: I love cats and offer cat sitting as well
as dog sitting! I'm happy to stay at your house
or visit your kitty while you're away. I have a spacious 2 bedroom apartment, My Wife & Daughter including myself Love All Breeds of dogs, Gentle Giants are also welcomed ie; Mastiffs, Great Dane , Your best friend will always enjoy a great time in Central Park!! I live in an apartment, and I have no yard, but you can say Central Park is my yard since It's just a block away. Being a dog owner myself, I know it's a lot of responsibilities. I understand the special bond owners and dogs have so I do everything I can to respect that. I treat your dog like I would treat my own. Prior to any dog staying with me and my wife I ask a detailed spreadsheet be completed letting me know all about the dog and the owner preferences. It provides me with all the important basic details, such as feed times, amounts, spayed/neutered, medication etc. But more importantly it lets me know what your dog dislikes and likes. I want your dogs stay to be as comfortable as possible. I also want you the owner to feel assured that your pet is in good hands.

Sam and I will take extra care of your best friend, that's a promise. I know how hard it can be to leave your best friend with a stranger, that's why to give you peace of mind, I will always update you with pics, and even live video of your little pup. . . .or big pup :-) Sam is friendly, has interacted with doggies of all sizes, breeds, and ages.

Your pup will be well supervised, and given plenty of attention. Their vacay will be customized to their particular needs. For example, if your furry friend has energy to burn, then extra walks to the park can be included.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me. No question is a silly question when it comes to your 4 legged loved one. I look forward to meeting you and your best buddy, and providing the warm and secure care your pet deserves while you are away.

Jose is absolutely the best sitter I've had by far, he's always been and if not available he will make himself available to care for my dogs. For example I had a last minute business trip and one of my dogs is a senior and needs someone to be more than patient with him as I've had horrible experiences in the past with other sitters, Jose's very kind and understanding and knows what it's like to be a doggie parent as he's an owner himself of 2 gorgeous Labrador Retrievers, he's definitely my go to guy always can count on him......thank you for all you've done Jose

You can tell a person is good with dogs by how they behave towards them. My Duke is always happy to see Jose and his family. He's really good with him and helped me break him out of some bad habits. I recommend him to care for your dog.

My dog just knows she's in a good and safe environment when she gets to Jose's home. It is warm, inviting, dog friendly and his labs are just the sweetest things ever. Jose is attentive to my dog's needs, and I can tell from the photos he sends regularly that she is getting love and belly rubs all the time. When we walk by his building she tries to pull me towards it because she thinks she's going for a visit. :)

Jose and his family are always welcoming and treat our dog like part of the family.
Jose is a wonderful sitter. He was so accommodating to us when we had to extend at the last minute. We would thoroughly recommend him!
Absolutely wonderful. Cannot say enough positive things about Jose and his family. They took amazing care of Digby while we were away in Florida. Our regular dog sitter was not available and at the last minute we found Jose. Upon meeting him and his family we felt totally at ease leaving Digby there. He kept us well informed the whole time we were away with updates as well as heaps of photos. All around excellent!
