About Reina

Half-Marathoner who only takes one dog at a time for the most loving, safest and personalized experience in the West Village!

A dog-lover since birth, I grew up in California surrounded by many dog brothers and sisters! Now in Manhattan, and without a buddy of my own, I'd love the opportunity to shower your little gal/guy with attention, fun walks/jaunts along the beautiful Hudson River Park, and, if they are not familiar with it already, a healthy dose of salsa music and dancing in the living room!

I'm comfortable with small and large dogs alike having grown up with Rotweillers, Pit Bull mixes, German Shepherds, Labradors, Terriers etc. so your baby is safe with me!

We only take one dog at a time (or dog siblings and friends that already know each other) and we have no live-in pets so you can be assured that your buddy will be safe and receive personalized care and tons of attention!

We do require that pups be fully house-broken, and although we would want to take all dogs, given that our super lives right above us, unfortunately we cannot take on dogs that have severe separation anxiety.

Our lovely, cozy abode: I work from home most days (my partner-in-love works outside home during the day), so can be available to dog sit during the day and of course overnight stays. Your doggie would be staying in a 1 bedroom apartment with couch privileges so he/she can feel perfectly comfortable and at ease. The apartment is a short skip and jump to Washington Square Park, Hudson River Valley Park/West Side Highway, and dog runs so you can be sure they will get the exercise and fresh air they need to feel their best during their vacation!

If you choose me, I'm very meticulous, and would ask you all the needed questions to ensure that I get the inside scoop on what your baby prefers, any quirks, and most importantly, any health/medicinal needs your doggie requires.

I also am a newly-minted half-marathoner (very un-impressive to full marathoners, but I digress). This means that if your dog likes to go for runs then he/she may just be my ideal running coach!

I have created a thorough online questionnaire so as to capture all of your pup's important deets so they'll always have a "file" with us. :)

Additionally, we live in a shoe-free zone, so after every walk, I wipe down your dog's paws and ensure that he/she is clean, and well-taken care of at all times. The entire apt. is puppy-proofed and since we do not have dogs of our own (we wish we did!), please rest assured that they will get tons of love, affection, and playtime.

Throw in a healthy dose of pictures and video-taking, I will be in contact with you as often as you would like me to. :)

I'm easy-going and fun-loving and if you have any special requests please do not hesitate to ask/reach out.

Looking forward to welcoming your pup into my home!

AWESOME! Candy got the grand tour of NYC whilst I was in conference. Candy loved her!
We just brought Waffles home from her 2nd stay with Aunt Reina. We were sad to leave her since she recently slipped a disc in her back, but we wouldn't have trusted her to anyone else in her delicate condition. We are so blessed that Waffles has such a great sitter! Our flight got delayed a few hours and Reina was able to keep our little girl an extra day at a moments notice, and sent plenty of great pictures for us to swoon over while we were away!
This was Lady's 2nd time with Reina and it was just as good as the first. Lady came home happy and excited and tired! Reina sent me photo updates and texts "from lady" that just made my day. Thanks again Reina and we will see you soon I am sure!
