About Manuel

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I always look forward to watching pets of family and friends. I love dogs! Even growing up my family had three of them. I live in a large spacious studio apartment in a building complex full of pet owners. The residential area is a friendly quaint neighborhood in Flushing, surrounded by two parks nearby. Both parks are relatively large and only a few blocks away. I have numerous experience taking care of dogs and other animals. There is a car available, so driving for any reason shouldn't be a problem. Walks will be frequent. I also have a 10yr old daughter who frequently visits and she loves playing with animals as she herself owns a large poodle. I know how much you love your pets, but when work, vacation, or scheduling conflicts take you away from them, you want a dependable pet sitter. I am confident I can provide this for you.

I work at the UN Section for Humanitarian Affairs. I enjoy taking care of animals, especially dogs. It feels great knowing I can provide good care for your pets while your away.

I have had dogs since I was 3 years old. Dogs I have owned and/or taken care of range from small Poodles, Yorkies and Chihuahuas to a beautiful large German Shepard my grandfather owned.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?
No breed preferences, I love all dog types! All I need to know is if your dog has any special medical needs or particular habits.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?
Yes, I own a 4-Door Sedan.

Are you comfortable administering medication?
Yes, I have no problem administering medication to animals whether administering pills orally or mixing in medication with food.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?
On weekdays, I will be at my office for less than 8 hours, so before and after work will be devoted to taking care of your dog. On weekends, the entire day will be used for dog sitting.

Where will my dog sleep?
I want your dog to be as comfortable as they are when they're at home. My apartment is roomy so plenty of space to choose from. If you have a bed they love, please feel free to include it during your pet's stay.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Surrounding neighborhood as well as two parks are located nearby. Kissena Park is relatively large with long walking paths and open grassy areas.

We are really appreciated Manuel. He is wonderful with the dogs, showing the kindness and love. We have booked Manuel in the past and have good memory about him. Lana & Igor Potemkin
My beagle, Zoey, is a repeat vacayer at Manuel's house. He has always taken very good care of her and has always worked very well with me as far as drop offs and pick ups.
Manuel helped us out at the last moment when our other Nanny had an emergency. He was very accommodating, quickly doing a meet n greet with us before watching our two small senior doggies to ensure us all would be ok. He was terrific with them, and they were very cozy and comfortable with him. He sent updates and pictures to let us know all was ok. We would definitely recommend Manuel and would not hesitate to use him again.

Manuel is a really nice young man, friendly and accommodating. He took great care of my little Maltese and even spoiled her a bit! I can highly recommend him! You will be satisfied!
I was happy with my decision to leave Zoey with Manuel. Manuel was very good with Zoey and she took to him very quickly. He sent me a picture during the day so I could see that Zoey was doing well. If I ever need to leave Zoey again, I wouldn't think twice about leaving Zoey with Manuel.

Manuel was very quick to respond to my emails, texts, and calls. He kept me updated on how the "kids" were doing throughout my trip. We're very pleased with Manuel. Would use again and definitely recommend.
