Hello there! I am a dog walker/sitter in Manhattan who approaches her work with great joy, pride, and care. I am kind, patient, gentle, intuitive, attentive, adaptable, and, most importantly, passionate about animals. I have experience caring for a wide variety of dogs, as well as cats and fish, and am open to caring for any other types of pets you may have. I have been walking in New York full-time since the start of 2015, although I have been walking and caring for pets part-time since 2008. I grew up with a black Miniature Schnauzer, Thora, who lived to be 16 years old. Watching and caring for her as she grew old has given me the skills and knowledge to attend to the special needs that senior dogs require.
PLEASE NOTE: I prefer to sit rather than board at my home. I believe the comfort and peace of mind of your pet is most important. However, if boarding is what you would like, I will board dogs under 20 lbs, who are strictly potty trained and maintain a low noise level. I have a roommate who grew up with and loves dogs and cats. She loves to socialize and play with the pets and is very animal-capable, however I take full responsibility for the walks/feedings/etc. of your pets.
Thank you for reading! I look forward to hearing from you and hope to be bonding with your little friend soon.
