About Sophia

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Note: I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I'm happy to stay at your house or visit your kitty while you're away. I only accept potty trained dogs for stay in my home.

I am a recent grad with a major in Psychology and a minor in loving dogs! In college, I maintained a part time job walking pups and dog-sitting nearby. I now live in NYC and offer pet sitting services anywhere in the city.

As your 'Paw'parazzi I can send you fun pictures of your dog's stay.

I am an avid long distance runner, and am open to taking your dog on jogs, as well.

Sophia watch out cats over Christmas Break. She a good job as keeping our kitties company.
My cat was happy and healthy with Sophia's help! Thanks again!
Sophia was great with our two dogs. We were away for our bachelor/bachelorette weekend and she made sure our two boys had a great weekend while we were gone. She stayed in our home to make sure they were comfortable. We got updated with lots of pictures throughout the weekend and she spoiled them with lots of attention, walks and treats. We moved to the Valley but would definitely use her again.
I think I was Sophia's first cat job. She was always very responsive and sent pics/videos everyday. Thanks for taking care of Kei!
Reliable as always.
Excellent as always.
Sophia takes great care of our poodle mix, Wedge, when we leave town. We trust her in our apartment, and she's super flexible and easy to work with. Wedge is a pretty odd little dog who doesn't particularly like other dogs and is standoffish around new humans, but he loves spending time with Sophia. A great dogsitter if you're lucky enough to live in her radius :)
As always, Sophia is absolutely excellent, reliable, and trust worthy!
Sophia does a great job of taking care of Cake and has saved us multiple times in a pinch!
Sophia was amazing! We needed a last minute reservation and she was super accommodating and sent us tons of photos. I will definitely use her next time we go out of town!
I highly recommend Sophia! It was a last minute booking, but Sophia was very accomodating. Levitt loved his stay with Sophia and had a good time. Sophia updated us with so many pics and vids that we felt relieved that he was in such good hands. We'll definitely be booking with Sophia again!
It was my 2nd time using Sophia. She was as amazing as the 1st time!
Sophia was great with my pups and I felt very comfortable having her stay in my home. She sent lots of pictures which I loved! I would book with her again.
Ravi had a great time, we were covered for a evening dinner and event out of town, Sophia was willing to be up at midnight when we returned, plus she only lives a few blocks from our house! It was all very easy and we will definitely be using her again.

Cake adores when Sophia come over to watch Cake for the day. She has great rates, sends numerous photos and videos, and always leaves our home spotless.
Sophia is professional and nice, comfortable with Lobo, a 95-lb playful shepherd; great to know Lobo would be visited by her, and getting a video and photo was a great comfort as I traveled.
Sophia is absolutely amazing and detailed-oriented. My dog warmed up to her right away. He is not typically keen on strangers. She also left my apartment clean and spotless!
Sophia watched Cake again, when I realized I needed a sitter last minute. She always sends me tons of photos and videos with very witty captions. It means a lot that I know Cake is in good hands while she recovers from kennel cough.
Sophia arrived early to care for our sick puppy, Cake. She did an an amazing job and made our day out extra special with the videos and photos she sent us. Cake seems very happy and tired out from her day with Sophia. We will definitely be repeat customers!!
Sophia was absolutely fantastic. She provided many photos and videos of Pudding's various antics/trips/walks throughout the entirety of my trip. When I returned, it was great to see that Pudding was happy and in good health. Really satisfied with the overall experience!
Sophia was so amazing with my mini aussie. I won't leave my dog with just anyone, and interviewed probably 8 people before I luckily found Sophia. She kept me up to date, sent such cute pictures, and even got a few play dates. Our dog was healthy, happy, and so well cared for. Would definetly recommend her to any of my friends and would use her again!
Sophia was amazing! She helped us last minute and our little puppy was in great hands. She sent us pictures throughout his stay and when we picked him up he was happy as can be! Thank you Sophia!!
Sophia cared for our dog Mattie, a Pomeranian, for a week at our apt while we were away on the east coast. Being so far away I was super excited to receive constant photo updates from Sophia, accompanied by thoughtful, witty taglines to describe all of Mattie's activities while we were gone- our dog even got to attend a Thanksgiving brunch! We have two toddlers who keep us quite busy so Mattie was in need of some attention as she gets less and less lately, so it was great to see she was getting lots from Sophia. Usually when I get back from vacation my dog scolds me by barking at me (basically in a yelling way) and she didn't seem mad at me at all for leaving this time so that was great. I would definitely recommend Sophia to others!
Sophia was great. I knew my dog, Evie, was in good hands when I had my "meet n greet" with Sophia!

Sophia was kind, caring and very flexible. She sent me lots of photos of my lil pooch as I was out of town and kept me connected to Evie. She even took Evie for a nice lil field trip to the mall and grocery store. Haha. I would definitely recommend Sophia if you're looking for a dog sitter or boarder.
Sophia is fantastic! She took Caspian on lots of fun adventures, and kept me well-stocked with adorable photos when I was away.
