About Vivian

I live within three blocks of three different parks, which are Ft. Tyron (Cloisters), Inwood Hill Park and one smaller park.

I am a huge animal lover and wish I could have more than one dog. This is a GREAT way to play auntie to a whole bunch of dogs. I worked at NYC Veterinary Specialists so I learned a lot. I'm also friends with veterinarians and vet techs.

I adopted my new dog, Miel after spending 14 wonderful years with Sasha. Unfortunately I had to put Sasha to sleep a few months ago and felt lost without a doggie companion.

Miel is 3.5 years old and very energetic. She has NEVER met a stranger and I swear she will wag her tail off one day.

The typical day starts at 7am with a meowing, "starving" cat as an alarm clock. I take Miel out for a walk/run and come back to prepare breakfast for her and my cat, Fangio.

Vivian is amazing!!! We went away for our wedding and honeymoon and we were very relaxed and worry free. When we picked up Willow she was happy and even had learned some tricks. We love Vivian!
Once again we were extremely pleased with Vivian. Willow was happy and looked liked she had so much fun at Vivian's. We received updates and always in communication with her. She is my #1 sitter to go to.
Vivian was great! We scheduled a meet & greet beforehand and as soon as we met Vivian and her dog Miel we knew Luna would be well taken care of. Communication was great, and we got back a happy pup. Thanks again!
Vivian is AWESOME! Starting with scheduling, drop offs, constant communication, and pick she was just so understanding and flexible. Willow and Vivians dog Miel got a long great. I wasn't nervous at all, this was her second stay with Vivian. Willow was so happy when we picked her up, and she was loving Vivian and Miel. I could tell Vivian has a lot of experience with dogs and she is comfortable with any situation. I hope to have Willow stay with Vivian again in the future.
Once again, Vivian was wonderful. Marlowe got excited once he realized where he was going; as far as I'm concerned, that's high praise!
This is the second time Vivian watched Marlowe, and I was just as pleased as before. She is a pleasure to work with. We got delayed due to transit conditions on the way back, and Vivian was even kind enough to drop off Marlowe in her car--in torrential rain. Thank you Vivian!
I was so nervous when I first started looking around for a sitter. Vivian's experience and reviews really helped me with the selection process. We had a meet and greet which went good. Once I dropped off Willow I knew she was in the best possible hands. I received updates and pictures. Willow always looked happy and relaxed. Vivian seemed like she had a great time with Willow. This was our first experience and it was so great. Willow will definitely be staying at Vivian's again.
Obie loved his stay with Vivian. She was so patient with my lil hyper pup. I got constant updates and photos. Obie was spoiled with nice long walks. So glad the first time I left Obie with a stranger was a good experience. I highly recommend her. Can't thank you enough.
thank you vivian for taking such good care of my baby juliette . just to add my baby was set up with a host already Eliza and dropped off .a few hours later the host became ill and dog vacy called me i was so worried and scared but the matched me with another host vivian waited for a pet taxi . i spoke to vivian on the phone and vivian took time out of her life to go pick my baby up all the way downtown manhattan when she got her she called me and assured me that juliette was fine so my worries went away . vivian is great with dogs im glad i found her thank you vivian you took great care of her i highly recommend her :)
I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with Vivian. We did a meet and greet to make sure all the animals would get along and she sent me pictures and updates while I was away. I would definitely leave my doggie with her again.
Vivian was a wonderful host for Marlowe, and it seems her adorable puppy Miel was a good friend for him, too. She responded quickly, came out for a meet and greet in the pouring rain, then texted me updates and photos of the pooch (who seemed very relaxed and happy) throughout my time away. Five stars!
Vivian was great with our 6-month old Staffy! It was our first time to be away from our pup. Vivian sent pictures/text messages to keep us constantly updated and assured that all was well. The apartment was clean and spacious, and since she has a dog and cat herself, it gave our little Dragon a great opportunity to socialize and make new friends.
Vivian took great care of my dog and was very responsive to her needs.
Vivian was wonderful! Very accommodating and sweet with my dog. She seemed very responsible and provided a wonderful environment for him.
