We have a spacious apartment in Washington Heights, very dog friendly and comfortable. A block away is a great dog gathering park, 2 dogs runs within walking distance, Ft Tryon Park and the Cloisters 4 blocks away, the Hudson river dog beach down the hill (for summer swimmers), and the beautiful streets on the cliffs in Washington Heights.

My partner and I are very well attuned to dogs, highly experienced with all breeds, very attentive, attune to dogs personalities, good with special care, and great at managing behaviors. (your dog may come home with new tricks!)

Words do not express our appreciation for Yogesh & Robert.
I would give more stars if they were available. My pup stayed at Pooch Nirvana for almost a week. He has incredible puppy energy and when I left him he had something of a bowel problem I was working on. Yogesh took this on and now my pup's medical condition is fine. Additionally he sent me daily photos of my happy boy. I felt great relief that my doggie was with people who loved and cared for him. I knew he was safe. He was also having a blast with the other dogs. I have already booked Pooch Nirvana and will continue to do so. They are the best!
This is the second time Fred stays at Yogesh's Dog heaven! they are constantly sending us updates and photos on our pets day, which makes us feel included and safe. If you are looking for a place that will treat your furry family, they will treat them as their own!!
Our Pug LOVES staying with this lovely family. My dog is so emotionally needy, and at 11 years old we have a very tight relationship. She won't walk away from me for anyone....except Yogesh. He is a dog whisperer and it's amazing to witness.
She has a couple behavioral issue, lunges at bigger dogs when walked and gets food aggressive. When she's in his care he has tight control over her behaviors and as necessary separates her at mealtime. He really treats her well, keeping her safe as well as the other dogs at his retreat. I have proof, my dog walks away from me for him!
Pawsome care.
Lola is actually doing all the work. Lol. These guys are amazing.
I recommend Yogesh & Robert to any and all people.
Bentley & Bosley are always excited to see them.
They love love our little boyz.
The do more with asking them. They put our needs first, not theirs.
The boyz (dogs) love these guys.
We are sooooooo happy we found them.
They never cease to amaze us.
They guy above & beyond.
We love these guys & Lola rules.
Willing to work with us on.
Perfect "Uncles".
Amazing people.
Dedicated to their charges.
In my second life, I want to come back as one of their dogs.
We are planning a 2 week vacation in March, we are very comfortable leaving the boys with them.
We are afraid they may not want to come home.
Loves, loves loves our boys.
Lola & the guys are pawsome.
Very accommodating.
Always there when we need them!
We know they are well cared for.
Trust these guys completely.
As always, perfection.
Wally had a fantastic time, as usual. He was happy enough to see us yesterday after 2+ weeks, but today he misses all his friends. We recommend Yogesh to every dog owner we know.
Yogi accepted a very last minute reservation and was accommodating in every way. Marlowe enjoyed his stay with the other pups. I would definitely recommend Yogi and hope to board Marlowe with him in the future.
Yogesh and his partner were fantastic hosts and took wonderful care of our two dogs. They responded quickly to our emails and followed up with the reservation in a very efficient manner. During our dogs' stay with Yogesh, we were updated daily with pictures and comments on how our girls were doing. We greatly appreciated the calm environment they offer and their expertise: they truly know how to manage dogs and have obvious experience on how to make it a pleasant, fun, and safe experience for the dogs. They also carefully followed our indications on feeding and on providing medication to our older one. Upon their return home, our girls were happy and clean. They had a great time, and we had a relaxed time away knowing they were in good hands.
GreAt care taken of Bonaparte. Thank you
Yogesh and Robert were wonderful. Our normally reticent Sadie went right to Yogesh and fell in love. After a short stay, she was a certified member of the pack! We felt very confident that Sadie was in good hands. Yogesh and Robert were also very human-friendly and responsive to anything we needed. We even got pictures of our girl. Sadie will definitely return to this doggie camp in the future!
Yogesh and his partner know how to handle dogs and really enjoy what they are doing. Ramsay had a wonderful time staying with Yogesh and playing with the other dogs under his care. I think this was a great experience for Ramsay as he's normally not around other dogs and always wants to play.
We were referred to Yogesh and Robert from friends who gave a raving review. We were not disappointed. They were so easy to work with and quick to respond when setting this up. Our dog stayed while we were out of the country and having him there gave such peace of mind. They even sent us video postcards to reassure that all was well and we had a happy pup.
My puggle Sophie was very excited to go back after her meet and great with Yogesh and Robert. All went well with drop off and pick up. It was all super easy and would use them again.
My dog Blanche is nervous and easily scared, but when I had my meet & greet with Yogesh and Robert, I knew that she would be fine. The apartment was very comfortable, and I could see that Blanche would get the proper attention. After the one-day stay I could tell that Blanche was well taken care of, and I feel relaxed now that I can leave her for longer trips in such excellent care!
We needed a "puppy daycare" A.S.A.P. for July 2. Yogesh came thru for us without hesitation and we secured "Sterling's" reservation. Upon meeting the very caring doggie person the morning of July 2, we were confident that "Sterling" would have a fun and proper day with him. We were very pleased with the daycare and would use Yogesh again.
Buddy was apprehensive when we took him over to Yogi and Robert's, and he even got a little nippy (sorry, guys). He was completely chill when I picked him up and the next day he took me completely off our usual course and when straight to their building! Bud had a good time...and the guys were great with him.
Wonderful as always! Our dog feels right at home!
Maggie had a great time staying with Robert overnight ! They have plenty of toys there for puppies to play with. Robert kept me updated about how Maggie was doing during the stay and sent me several pictures as well ! I would definitely go back.
They are so sweet and loving with Banjo! He loves Yogesh's energy. He didn't even want to come home.
Yogi and Robert were excellent hosts for Sampson! They provide a really lovely, warm home for him when we are away with lots of other dog friends and playtime. They are both wonderful with dogs - ours can be a bit of a picky eater and skip a meal here and there; never at Yogi and Robert's!
Ted's stay with Yogi and Robert was great, as always. Ted comes home happy and sleepy from having played the day away with Lolah and all of the other pups. Yogi and Robert are super responsive and communicative, and it was a great experience all around.
Another great vacation for Wally - thank you!
The "boys" asked if they could stay a little longer and play with Lolah. Hmmmmm. ;-)
Perfect as always and came to the rescue at the last minute too.
Outstanding and caring as always.
Could not be happier with the guys and Lolah.
Yogesh and Robert (and Lolah) are wonderful! They sent updates and pictures regularly to let us know our pooch was settling in. I can tell they really love dogs and care about making sure our dog was safe and happy. I feel completely comfortable with our dog in their care and recommend them highly.
Ella spent her first weekend away from me with her new best friends, Yogi and Robert. They sent me photos and updates and I returned to an unstressed and happy wee dog. It was such a weight off of my mind knowing that she was in such excellent hands and being loved as much as I love her!
Ella quickly learned that any time spent with Robert and Yogi is fun time! She literally runs up the steps and waits with anticipation to see them and Lola coming to greet us! They have been life savers for us in more ways than one!
Yogi & Robert are absolutely amazing. We leave our Beagle Archie with them a few days a week while we are at work and they take fantastic care of him. We love that he is with other dogs all day, exercised and entertained instead of being home by himself.
Yogi & Robert have a lovely home and also take care of a great bunch of other dogs. Archie comes home absolutely exhausted from his days there, which is exactly what we want!
I can't speak highly enough about Yogi & Robert. They are amazing with Archie and super flexible and helpful to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services.
Awesome as always.
Pawsome as usual.
Superb as usual. The guys and Lolah take wonderful care of him and love him too. We are just glad he wants to come home.
Yogesh and Robert were fantastic. As soon as I met them, I could tell that they really understand dog behavior. Our dogs had a lovely time. I especially liked that there were other dogs there for them to socialize with.
Yogi and Robert were wonderful hosts for Sampson! They are really wonderful with dogs of all kinds and sizes and have a great routine worked out with the dogs they walk and board. Our dog can be finicky when out of his routine (i.e. maybe won't eat) had no issues, which was a relief. They were super accommodating with drop off and pick up.
Once again Yogesh, Robert and Lolah have taken superb care of our boy. When we take him over there he is very eager and totally forgets about us. He has new friends on the block 2 as well as 4 legged. We have no worries when we leave Bentley with them.
We could not be happier with Mr. Bentley's care. Yogesh, Robert & Lolah treated him as if he was their own. They would send pics regularly and send periodic text messages about Mr. Bentley. He was having such a good time, we were afraid he might not to come home. Bottom line they went above and beyond and thoroughly endorse them. Guys and Lolah, thank you for taking such good care of our boy. Full heartedly recommend you guys.
I have never left my dog with anyone before, so I was nervous about going on vacation for a week without him, but I am so pleased that I left him with Yogesh and Robert! They took such great care of him, gave me daily updates with pictures, and my pup came home completely happy and healthy. He made so many new friends during his stay that I think we are going to have to arrange regular playdates now so he doesn't miss them too much. Thank you so much, Yogi and Robert! Ted will be back any time I need to leave the city!
Robert and Yogi are fantastic!
Excellent experience and couldn't have gone more smoothly. Hosts were incredibly flexible, responsive and Bowser had a great time. Would absolutely use them again and would recommend for anyone in the area. Pick up / Drop off was a breeze with their location and as a first time user couldn't have been happier.
Fantastic as usual. Our dog had a better time than he has at home.
Our puppy Owen is addicted to Robert and Yogi. He has such a good time there that it is hard to get him to leave. He has become a little socialite in their neighborhood. When I bring him home, he is ready to take a big ole nap.
We trust Robert and Yogi with our Owen so much. He is learning a great deal from them and from there dog Lolah.
They are always flexible and available, even with last minute things.
We have also gotten some awesome recommendations from them, including the new harness that keeps Owen from pulling on the leash.
What a blessing it is to have a second home for our puppy Owen!
Yogesh and Robert have saved the day!!!
From the very beginning, they have been so great with our crazy puppy, Owen. They came over to meet Owen and I thought that they would not take him because he was barking and growling. He really needed to be socialized and become more comfortable with people and dogs. They were so patient with Owen and stayed with us for a while and even took him walking. After his first daycare experience, he seemed to be more relaxed and less prone to bark at every dog that passed. He was afraid to go up and down stairs, but when I came to pick him up, he came down the stairs like a pro. He followed Robert around like he was his new best friend and he obeyed him swiftly.
Yogesh and Robert are so easy to work with and they accommodated our schedule without any problems.The picture updates during the day put me at ease and let me know that Owen was all good. Owen has made a few new dog friends including their lovely dog Lolah.
What a relief to know that Owen is not alone all day while we are at work, and to know that he is well taken care of and having fun.
You guys rock!!!!!!!
Fantastic! Our dog had such a great time that he seems a little sad to leave his new friends. The photo and video updates that we received throughout our trip put our minds at ease, too.
