Welcome, and Happy New Year!
Born in Israel, family from Buenos Aires and grew up in Boston area. A proud University of Michigan alum (Go Blue!) I’ve had the opportunity to live/work all over the world but NYC always feels like home and I’ve been here for nearly 8yrs.
Bilingual English/Spanish, and have conversational proficiency in French, Italian and Hebrew.
I’m a lifetime dog lover who works a flexible schedule from home in a comfy, sunny, happy, clean, safe, doorman and dog friendly building. It is an elevator building and no stairs to worry about for those with older dogs. My apartment is just steps away from Central Park and Riverside Park, with several friendly dog parks/runs a short trot away. Your pup will get 3-4 walks/day. Generally, I like to do a longer walk in the morning but I’m more than happy to follow whatever routine you normally do at home.
Your pup’s safety and happiness is my #1 focus. I am PetTech – PetSaver, Pet CPR, First Aid Certified.
Your dog will be showered with love and will receive tons of belly rubs and snuggles throughout their stay. I know how hard it is to be away from your favorite furry friend and make it a point to send several pictures throughout the day along with brief updates on how things are going. If you are traveling abroad, I’m also happy to send updates via Whatsapp or even have a Skype/Facetime chat. Whatever makes you most comfortable.
My preference is to work with small to medium sized dogs and schedule a meet and greet before booking stays. House trained and generally well behaved is a must. The rates I publish refer to normal boarding as described above. If your pup requires additional care, walks or other special requests, let’s discuss the specifics!
I look forward to meeting you and your pup soon!
P.S. Due to holiday season, there may be a slight premium on actual holidays and wkends. Please also specify when you plan to do drop-off/pick-up as this impacts the price and final quote. As always, I am very flexible and reasonable.
