About Symone

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

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!
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!
Symone is an awesome dog sitter! She's so friendly and detail-oriented, and her apartment is set up perfectly for dog visitors. She gave us fantastic updates throughout our dog Annie's stay, so we were able to enjoy our trip with no worries whatsoever about how Annie was doing. Thanks so much, Symone!
We were extremely happy with Symone. She had our puppy for 10 days and kept us updated multiple times during a day. She was patient and caring. Symone has the perfect set up for dogs, as they are not confined in a small space. Our puppy came home clean and cheerful. You can’t go wrong with Symone!
Symone was great! My dog baby came home happy and I'm sure she would love to go back for another extended stay. Symone was very attentive and I would highly recommend her services.
Symone was an INCREDIBLE host! Our dogs were honestly sad to leave - we'll be sure to ask for her help again! Highly recommended.
This was our second time utilizing Symone. We consider her family now . Our yorkie is great when he gets home. He's not anti social or stressed when we pick him up like he was after leaving him with a local petstore. Symone will care for your pet as if it were her own.
We plan to use Symone whenever we travel.
Symone was awesome and my dog loves her. She's very attentive and communicated with me the entire week. Thanks Symone
She is good. Send picture and update everyday and do not lie (if your dog wasn't good she tells you) which I value since so many people lies.
Symone was awesome. She sent frequent updates and clearly interested in Theo's well being and comfort. Theo came home and immediately went to sleep... clearly he had a good time.
Symone was a perfect host. She kept us up to date in Sascha each night we were away. Sascha came home happy and obviously well-cared for the entire stay with Symone.
Symone treated Rocky very well and as if he were at home. She's awesome! Communicated with me the whole time and even sent a pic of my baby boy. I'll utilize her whenever she's available for us. It was a great experience all the way around.
It was our puppy's first time away from home and family and even though he was a naughty little handful Symone was kind and great with him..! We got pics every day, answers to any questions and always knew Symone was taking good care of Scamper .,,,
Symone is great! Our yorkie spent 1 evening with her as a trial run. We were looking for a sitter that watch him for a full week in June. It was a very pleasant experience from beginning to end for all involved. Symone is a very kind person who showed so much concern for our yorkie We will definitely request her again in June.
