About Symone

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

My name is Symone, I'm in my early twenties and am originally from Germany! I've always had a family dog, and prior to moving to the city a year ago, my parents got a Maltese Shih-tzu mix puppy named Cappuccino that I miss like crazy. I've been on the fence of getting my own dog, so I thought I'd instead try dogsitting other people's dogs to at least fill the void of not having one around 24/7. I believe I have the perfect lifestyle for serving as a dogsitter. Early mornings and evenings I am a fitness professional and teach classes within the city. My classes last only an hour and I could bring your small dog with me to my morning classes and it could serve as their morning walk. In the evening, depending on the night, they'd be left to relax in the apartment no more then 2 hours by themselves. During the daytime, I work from home so I'll be able to play and give mass amounts of love to your dog while you're away. This is a huge plus for the clients I have had, the fact that their dog will have hours of company rather then be left alone for 8+ hours while they're away. I have a very spacious apartment located on the first floor, with a converted doggy room off from the living room. There's also the huge St. Nicholas Park down the street and a huge rooftop for your dog to chill on as well. I have wooden floors and simple furniture so clean-ups won't be a big deal and your dog will have free reign over the apartment. I also love giving dog's baths so that's another service I'd be more then happy to offer. The apartment has great AC units for the summer time so you're dog will never be uncomfortable nor cold in the winter. I do live in a duplex, and have a small downstairs bedroom. This will be blocked off if your dog is uncomfortable around stairs.

If your dog loves to be cuddled and given attention, I'm your dog sitter! If you're dog loves to run around or simply be left alone to relax and nap, I'm still your girl! Having a dog around in my empty apartment would be amazing so I'd take the upmost care to make sure your dog is safe, cared for and comfortable during your time away!
I've had several clients trust me with their dogs for weeks at a time and even when they travel abroad. I pride myself in being transparent and loving during your dog's stay with me.

I am extremely FLEXIBLE when it comes to pick-up and drop off depending on how much notice you give me. I don't mind keeping your dog for an extra day as long as I'm given a heads up!


Also go through my pictures as well, I give thorough updates daily to reassure you that your dog is in great hands. I update either once a day or three times a day, all dependent upon your preference!

Symone has a strong love of pups and has the perfect schedule to accommodate all pups! She would be home a good portion of the day and will be able to give your pup constant walks, love and attention. She has a beautiful apartment with lots of space for your pup to play and a park right near by!

This was our first time to use DogVacay, and Symone made our initial experience a great one! She is very prompt about getting back to you when setting the appointment. We did a meet and greet with Symone, and saw her place. Our dog, Maggie, got to sniff around and we were able to chat about her upcoming vacation. While Maggie was with Symone she sent updates and pictures, which we loved!!! If I had a question or needed anything Symone was very quick to get back to me! We will definitely be using her services again in the future!!

Symone took great care of our Zoe. She gave frequent updates with pictures and was super accommodating. An overall great experience.
Wilson came home from an afternoon of daycare calm and content, and Symone was wonderful about providing photo updates throughout the day. She was flexible on dropoff/pickup times and wonderfully communicative throughout the whole process. Wilson had a great experience!
