We are a couple (Justin and Carly) living in the Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan and we love dogs!! We have one hound in residence (Gus-Gus/king of the apartment) a loud mouth-10 years young- basset hound/cattle dog mix who likes to sleep at home and take long walks between his naps. Gus-Gus can be aggressive towards new humans and so we are very experienced in dealing with human aggressive dogs. However, while experienced, we prefer dogs with limited behavioral problems. Gus LOVES new friends! A typical day for Gus includes waking up, eating and then stretching his legs in the park for 30min. He then hangs out inside with us relaxing on his rug and the bed, until it is time for a mid afternoon walk. In the evening is when Gus gets out for his adventure walks (typically 1-2 hours). We are only three blocks from the trails in Inwood Hill Park and for rainy days only 2 blocks from Isham Park. Gus also regularly goes to the dog park with Justin although it is not necessary if your dog doesn't do dog parks (we understand they can be a little too hectic for some dogs!). We'd love to check in on/walk/feed your dog for you while you're away!
PS-We don't actually have chickens in our apartment but for some reason DogVacay wouldn't let us proceed with the profile information without selection which other animals were in the apartment. So we'll say Gus is part chicken :)
