About Itai

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.

Itai is the perfect host for an active dog!

Itai is home all day and is ready to give your pup the attention that they need. He loves to exercise and explore the outdoors and is more than willing to take your dogs along for the ride. His apartment has great views of the city and lots of light and is close to both Central Park and Riverside.

Itai is ready to give your pup the vacay they deserve!
Annie had such a great time with Itai! He couldn't be more attentive or caring. Nice walks in Central Park everyday. Itai sent great photos several times a day, which are now the best photos we have!
Itai was very welcoming to my pup Lola. I was a bit worried at first because she was scared with two other dogs but Itai did his best to give Lola extra love and cuddles, and it made her feel much more at ease and comfortable. I received great daily photos and updates. Thank you so much for making me and Lola's Christmas a lovely one, Itai!
Itai was an amazing dog sitter. He came in to help me in a very urgent situation and made my dog feel happy and taken care of. He was very thorough in asking about my dog's behavior and routine and kept me up on how she was doing. He took her out for all the exercise she needed and she came home a tired, happy dog.
