Hi! My name is Alli and I'm a certified professional Dog Groomer and LOVER! I've grown up with dogs my ENTIRE life so it was only natural that I make a career out of it!
I have had a very successful concierge business for 5 years now - I go to my client's homes to give full dog groomings (everything you would get in a grooming shop but in the comfort of your own home and with extra 1-on-1 attention). I have also taken my client's dogs into my own home for boarding while they are on vacation. So rest assured that I have PLENTY of experience & that your dog will be in great and loving hands.
I truly believe that dogs are part of the family. I love my dogs (1 in the city and 2 at my parents) like they are my daughters and I treat them as such. When your dog stays with me, they too will become part of my family. :)
While I am not medically trained, I have experience working at a vets office, so I am well aware if a dog is not feeling well. I know that even though dogs can't actually speak English, they ABSOLUTELY DO have a way of communicating with us! Many people are amazed that even the most unruly of dogs somehow start to listen to me when I give commands and "talk" with them. I'm not a trainer, but having grown up with dogs & now working with them for a living, has given me a natural ability to communicate with them better than most.
I have a small apartment on the Upper East Side (so I prefer dogs 25lbs and under), but I am steps away from Central Park and Carl Schurz park where I go quite frequently. I do not work from home obviously, but I am in and out of my apartment all day between clients... so your dog will never be alone for more than 2-3 hours. They will also have a playmate - my maltipoo Mia!
In addition to boarding, I also offer groomings. If you would like your dog to be groomed (for an additional fee) before returning home, just ask! I have very happy clients who would love to give references... even my celebrity clients (!) who are all so so happy when their dogs are with me.
I look forward to hearing from you & welcoming your dog into my home!
