About Nancy

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have both had pets our whole lives. Dogs, cats, rabbits, the whole gamut.
We are a healthy active couple living in Park Ridge NJ with Gary's father, a life long resident and active in the community.
Gary works in NYC during the day and I am a home maker/ yoga teacher.
We live in a one level ranch with carpets, a deck and a good size yard. Right by the town pool and ball field.
A typical day is making breakfast for the family, and then teaching a yoga class before coming back home. In the evening everyone is home and maybe I go teach another class while Gary and his dad watch some football.
We have a huge sectional couch that is perfect for a dog or two to curl up on.
I have always cooked for my animals and am very comfortable giving medications.
I am also very accustomed to late night /middle of the night walks when needed.
We are all weather people and able to handle picking up animals and assisting them.
We are friendly and funloving caring dog lovers who would welcome and enjoy the company of your pets. Our wonderful German Short Hair Pointer, Jack, recently passed after fifteen years. So at this time we do not have a family pet in our home. :(

As a dog owner and a dog lover my entire life, I truly believe that pets are part of the family. I have extremely high standards and expectations when dealing with the care of my dogs. I have known Nancy most of my life and I am completely confident that she is the perfect pet sitter. She is kind and compassionate woman who has a genuine love of animals. Nancy is an experienced dog owner and handler that goes above and beyond to provide the best life possible for all pets in her care. I highly recommend trusting her with the care of your pet.

Nancy will love your dog just as you do. She devotes herself to connecting to dogs through touch and voice. Her peaceful and loving nature will provide your dog with the calm and security he or she would need when not in your care, Nancy has dog sat for my Jack Russell Terrior for all of his 13 years and he treats her like a second Momma! I am confident your dog will feel the same way.

Nancy was such a great host for our dog Chloe. She sent us photos and videos throughout the weekend which put us at ease. Although Chloe was happy to come home, we knew she had a great weekend with Nancy. I wouldn't hesitate using Nancy again and would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy, caring dog sitter.
Cooper had the BEST Christmas! He didn't have to stay alone while we went to visit family for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day...and we didn't have to worry about him home alone during that time...sometimes a bored dog gets into things he shouldn't! Cooper, of course, had THE BEST CHRISTMAS with Nancy and Gary...they gave him new toys to play with and Gary's dad enjoyed a tug of war with Cooper and his favorite toy! Cooper just loves them...he left us in the dust on the front lawn as he ran into their house...he knows he gets really special treatment with them!!! I never feel like the bad dog parent when I leave him there...they treat him far better than we do and we treat him better than we treat our kids!!! (Of course, our children are grown now.)
Lily had a amazing weekend at Nancy's. She and her husband took great care of her, and I could tell when I picked her up that she was treated like a family member while staying with them. Nancy was very accommodating with booking and pick-up/drop-off times, taking Lily over a holiday weekend and limiting her house to one dog (as Lily can be reactive). We received lots of photos and updates over the four days. I would strongly recommend Nancy and would definitely use her again.
Honestly, Nancy and Gary are the very best pet sitters I have ever used! I was worried my Cooper wouldn't want to come back home! Cooper has some issues, one of which is being a 3 legged dog. They were just so great with him...they treated him as if he was their own dog. I received lots of pictures and updates. I just can't say enough about how comforting it was to be away and know he was so loved while we were gone. I highly recommend Nancy and Gary to anyone looking for a wonderful, safe, loving place to board their dog.
Thank you Nancy and Gary for taking great care of my fur-baby. I immediately felt comfortable at our meet and greet. They opened up their home to our dog and constantly kept me updated with lots of pics of our boy. I highly recommend Nancy and Gary and will definitely use them again.
