Hello! Welcome to "Kate's Canine Inn." My Husband Joey and I live in relatively large apartment in Astoria, Queens. We both grew up with dogs, and I spent many a summer taking care of my friend's and family member's dogs. We are both musicians who sometimes have to travel for work, which prevents us from feeling like we could own our own dog and give them the attention they deserve. But we desperately miss having canine friends in our lives on a regular basis! (Dog's just make life better, don't they?) Being able to offer a warm, comforting, space for others to bring their dogs to when they need a place to stay seems like the best way for us to get some quality animal time when we are at home. Because we don't have a pup of our own, this means that your dog will get all of our love and affection without having to compete with a resident pooch.
I have a very flexible work schedule (which sometimes takes me into Manhattan, but rarely for more than a few hours at a time). I can confidently offer at least a morning and evening walk around our residential neighborhood, with potentially more if needed. Astoria park is just down the road from us and we can either jog there together, or hop in our car and drive there for dogs who want to run and play in the park but aren't up for a 2+ mile jog. We do have a car which can be used for picking up/dropping off your dog, outings, or an emergency trip to the vet should that be necessary.
Thank you for considering us as a host for your furry family member, and I look forward to meeting you (and I especially look forward to meeting your dog!)
