About Alain

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a 32 year old professional who works from home, living in Morningside Heights in New York City. I work in Film/Media and my partner is a doctoral candidate at Columbia University. Our apartment is very clean, has high ceilings and big windows facing the courtyard. It's located 5 blocks from Central Park and 2 blocks from Riverside Park.

Our dog, Liam, is a well mannered, warmhearted companion, whom we adopted from a shelter in the south of France while living there last year. My partner has had dogs all her life and I grew up with a beautiful Lab/Retriever named Sheba.

When we adopted Liam, he was already a senior dog. Nevertheless, it provided me with my first opportunity/experience in dog training. Although he was house-broken, he had never been walked on-leash and did not respond to any basic commands. Successfully training him is one of my proudest achievements, disproving the old adage "you can't teach an old dog new tricks." He still learns new tricks and commands, even to this day!

I am flexible for a meet-n-greet and want to make sure that you feel comfortable leaving your lovely dog with me during your time away. I will treat your dog as if he were my own, with the utmost care, compassion and friendliness.

I hope to speak with you soon!

All the best,

Alain

Alain loves animals and treats them with the utmost care and respect. My dog loves Alain and runs up to him every time he sees him. He is flexible, accommodating and reliable. Highly recommend.

Alain was by all measures the perfect host for our dog while we were away. From the very first moment we contacted him he was courteous, communicative and showed a genuine concern for the well being of our pet. Our dog is a larger breed with lots of energy - he clearly enjoyed his stay with Alain very much and we would recommend him 100% to anyone who wants to be sure their pet is in capable, safe and caring hands while they are away. We will definitely be looking to Alain to watch our pet in the future.
