About Sara

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are conveniently located near Grand Central for all of your Pet care needs. We specialize in dog walking and overnight pet sitting for your furry loved ones. I love to give hugs and kisses to pups all around Manhattan. Let me care for your pets on your next excursion out of the city.

Pet care for daytime or overnight trips. I will stay with your pup in the comfort of his/her own home or ours and play all kinds of games, get massages and belly rubs. You tell us what your pet prefers in terms of feeding and walks and we’ll accommodate.

About me:
I live alone in my 900sqft apartment so if your pup stays with me I will be the primary care taker. I also work from home, so I am here 24/7 aside from running out to the store or gym occasionally. I also have a puppy cam app that is linked to my phone so I always have an eye on things even when I do run out.

Pet sitting for one dog is $45 and for 2 in the same home is $80/night.

Max is my only pup since Sammy sadly passed away last year from cancer. Neither of us are over it yet, so having the extra company of a pup or 2 is always welcomed.

I am experienced in caring for special needs and senior pets. Also in giving medication orally and through injections.

****I just noticed all of the very nice reviews. Some of these people are regulars and I'm flattered by all of the complimentary notes. Thank you from both of us!!****

Sara was a great and charming host. She took exceptional care of my dog and sent me regular status updates with pictures and videos. If I could book her again, I wouldn't hesitate to do so because my miniature dachshund is in great hands.
I booked Sara last minute due to a family emergency and relied on her reviews due to time restraints. She got back to me right away and she was great. While I was away, she was professional and left my apt clean, thoroughly cleaning up doggy accidents so my late night return was hassle free. She also clearly loves dogs and she sent lots of pictures. I would definitely recommend Sara as she is caring, reliable and I had an overall good experience with her house sitting my 2 dogs.
Sara was amazing! She was super responsive and communicative. She was also very understanding and flexible with booking and we can't thank her enough for that. Her apartment is beautiful and spacious and is perfect for little dogs to run around and play in. Esmé loved playing with her dog Max, and by the end of the night they were fast friends. He is so cute and adorable! I think they played together and cuddled the whole time!
Sara was lovely and a great dogsitter! She was readily available for a meet and greet. She was able to deal with my dog's behavioral issues like an expert. When I picked up my dog she seemed well cared for and very happy. I would definitely recommend Sara and will absolutely use her services again.
Mimi had so much fun with Sarah and Max!
Sara was wonderful. She was very quick to respond which is so helpful in a fast-moving, and her apartment building is convenient and lovely. She was also flexible with drop-off and pick-up times which is also key for me. She introduced her little guy to Maddy right away and they got along great and Maddy had a great time with her! I won't hesitate to request Sara again...thank you Sara!
A true dog lover. They missed me sure, but I knew Sara gave them loads of TLC and they were in great hands.
First time DogVacay user -- and Sara M and Max were great hosts. Bugsy had a great day and is already asking when he can see them both again!
Franklin always has a great time with Sara and I'm able to go away knowing he's having fun and is safe! She is wonderful about sending pictures and was very flexible with my uncertain travel plans. Frankie can't wait to visit again!
Sara was great!! She took such good care of my dog and even brought him to the dog park for a little fun and he looked like he had a blast! Would not hesitate to book with her again!
Stella has occasional day visits with Sara and her pup while I'm at work, and loves the cuddles and playtime.
Sara and her dog, Max, were wonderful. Both are very sweet and welcoming. Our dog is timid and usually takes a while to warm up to strangers, but they made him comfortable and it seemed like he had a great visit. Thanks Sara!
Sara was a perfect sitter for Henry! She took him for a ton of walks and kept him active with a lot of attention. She also sent a lot of pics which I love. I will definitely be using her again.
Sara is just great with Bailey, and having dogs herself, Bailey has furry friends to keep him company whenever we're away. She's taken care of Bailey twice so far and has been very accommodating with our schedule.
My dog has stayed with Sara numerous times. When we approach her street, he starts pulling me to her apt building - a clear sign that he enjoys his stays with her and her pups. Sara is nice and friendly and her apartment is large and clean. I highly recommend her.
Our dog really enjoyed her second stay with Sara and her Maltese. They were so welcoming and we were delighted to leave her in such a nice apartment with such a caring person. Sara was incredibly friendly at all points of communication and it was nice to know she is at home during the day so the dogs are not left alone. She sent us great photos too. We will definitely be back!
Sara is amazing! My puppy absolutely loves her and she was really amazing when my flight got cancelled and I was delayed coming back. Really wonderful and so good with dogs
Sara was great with Milo and very easy to work with. She kept us updated on Milo's status throughout the weekend and was also very flexible considering we booked last minute. I would definitely recommend Sara to a friend.
I’ve been very lucky in the past to have family/friends available to pet sit for my dog, Leo, when I had to go away and couldn’t take him with me. Since most of Leo’s pet sitters have moved away, I needed to find someone to watch him while I went away and I just couldn’t stand the thought of boarding him in a kennel. I started researching my options over the internet when I noticed…I was impressed with the concept and decided to give it a try. Let me just say, Leo is like my child and the first day I left him all I could think about was I hope he doesn’t think I’m leaving him for good (Yes, I’m aware I might be a little crazy), however, after the first night with Sara all my anxiety went away. It’s so obvious Sara is such an animal lover and as soon as I walked in her apartment with Leo she was so warm and loving towards him. I knew he was in good hands. Sara texted me throughout his stay and gave me updates on how he was doing and how much she was enjoying having him around. When the time came around for a second trip I had to take without with Leo, I didn’t hesitate booking with Sara again. Sara took such good care of Leo and I know he was well taken care of. Sara also has the 2 cutest and friendliest Maltese dogs that got along great with Leo. I can’t thank Sara enough for the peace of mind she gave me while I was away from Leo.
