About Daniel

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Medical professional living and working in Paulus Hook, Jersey City in modern condominium complex with dog run and outdoor play area. Having grown up with dogs and cats my whole life, I look forward to helping other animal lovers in the neighborhood and being a more active member of the Paulus Hook community. I look forward to meeting you and your pet(s)!

My apartment has extra large windows and plenty of sunshine (especially in the morning). There is no carpeting in my apartment-only hardwood and tiles (may not be best for elderly dogs). Central air and heat, large tub for bath-time and elevator in building. Numerous parks and green areas nearby for regular walks and exercise. I particularly enjoy walking pups to Liberty State Park, The Hudson River Park Promenade, Van Vorst Park and Hamilton Park.

I work full-time a few blocks from my apartment, but am available for mid-day walks and check-ins. I also work from home 1-2 days per week. I am available most weekends all day long.

Experience with:
-Hip Dysplasia and Mobility issues
-Recent Injuries
-Separation Anxiety
-Small Breed "Hunger Strikes" and picky eaters
-Aggression with other dogs
-Special dietary needs and meal preparation
-Basic grooming

I do prefer having a meet and greet in or near my building prior to any reservation so that I can meet you and your pup and learn more about their temperament and discuss potential logistics for arranging drop-off/pick-up.

Feel free to review my posted calendar and send a general query regarding dates before placing a reservation request.

Daniel took my last minute reservation to walk my two dogs and was wonderful! He communicated when he walked them, and I would gladly have him walk them again.
Daniel walked my puppy Henry for the week, and Henry seemed so happy! I felt great knowing that my pup was getting exercise while I was at work, and felt very comfortable with Daniel taking him. I look forward to continuing to work with Daniel to keep Henry happy :)
Excellent. Total stranger seemed like an old friend. Texted with picture updates.
Daniel was excellent! He took great care of pup, sending pictures and texts everyday to give me check ups on how our dog was doing. Upon pick up I could tell that our pup had been treated very well (looking like he had been on vacation) Kudos to Daniel he is a class act!
Daniel is very friendly and attentive with my lab, Lucy. He is very quick to respond and seems to genuinely enjoy being around animals.
Daniel was beyond flexible- we had an family emergency that we hd to attend to and he was kind enough to accommodate our schedules! Our dog was well cared for, we could tell when we picked him up he was very happy on leash with Daniel, came out tail wagging!
Daniel was awesome! He sent updates on Khaleesi while we were away and when we went to pick her up she was super excited. I would definitely recommend Daniel to anyone especially if this is there first time leaving their dog with a sitter. We will definitely use Daniel in the future and look forward to working with him again!
Daniel was so amazing, we couldn't be happier. He took care of our little Freddy for 2 weeks while we were out of the country. We got many photos and felt like our dog was having a blast. When we went to pick him up, Freddy was extremely happy and even got a bath!!!
Thank you so much Daniel!
Daniel is super nice and our pup's really calm when he's with him. I'll definitely drop my pup again when I need to.
Could not be happier with our experience with Daniel. Plenty of great updates with pictures and he clearly cared for Clarence's well being while he was there. C Man seemed happy as can be when we picked him up. Will definitely be booking Daniel again!
The best vacay home! Odz is my life, I would rather stay at home than take a vacay and this sentiment is now changed as I met Daniel. Daniel, looked after Odz as his child. Hands down best dogvacay(er). Thank you lot Daniel! - Odz's family.
From our initial meet and greet, I knew Daniel and Kevin would be great pupsitters for my furry son, Bentley. They are kind and attentive, sent me updates when requested and Bentley had a great time hanging out with the boys. Don't hesitate to book Daniel for your pups.
Daniel was an excellent host. He responds to messages immediately and accommodated our challenging requests without hesitation. Our dog was happy and seemed well cared for when when we picked her up.
Our two pups were well taken care of with Daniel. He took them on long walks and sent us lots of photos so we knew they were having a good time. He also gave our small dog his medication twice a day. We wouldn't hesitate to contact Daniel again to take care of our little ones. It's such a relief to find someone we can trust. Thanks!!
Daniel was AMAZING! We are sure Otis loved every moment with him. Otis is a Great Dane and doesn't like being away from mom and dad, but Daniel did a great job at making his place feel like like for Otis. We also loved receiving daily update emails describing the fun they had that day together and included photos of our pup. We'll ALWAYS check with Daniel first anytime we need a sitter. Thanks again!!
Second time working with Daniel. He really takes great care of Star! I highly recommend him to everyone else.
Hey, Daniel - thanks for keeping me company last Saturday - Momma says I get to visit you again, soon!
absolutely amazing!
This was the first time we left Loki with anyone, and we were very nervous parents. We could tell Daniel and Loki connected right away! He kept us updated with pictures and texts throughout the weekend. They had adventures at the park, and Daniel even brushed him before we picked him up! We've already booked Daniel for our next trip away. It's so wonderful to find someone who cares so much for your dog!
We are so happy to have found Daniel to take care of our dog Sally. Whenever we are away, he will be our first choice. Sally spent a week with Daniel while we were away on vacation. He was very quick to respond to set up a meet-and-greet and provided daily updates with pictures. Sally looked very content in all of the pictures and returned to us rested and happy. Thanks so much, Daniel!
Daniel was awesome with our pup!! He kept him busy and active. Would definitely recommend him!!
Jack loves staying at Daniel's place. We are lucky to have him nearby and would recommend him to anybody!
Daniel did an amazing job watching our 9 year old Jack Russel for the first time. They bonded from the start and I couldn't have been happier with the experience. He updated us with photos and info during the entire weekend! I have already booked Daniel for another visit.
Our experience with Daniel has been excellent! My two yorkies really like him! He always lets me know how they are doing and sends me a few pictures, videos or updates at the end of the day. He always responds fast, is very detail-oriented, and is also very accommodating. Whenever I need to travel, I know I'm leaving my doggies with someone I can trust.
Daniel was great with my dog. He sent cute updates throughout her stay so I knew she was in good hands. My dog was happy when I picked her up so I know she enjoyed herself. The process and communication with Danile was easy and worry free. I will definitely book him for future stays.
