About Matt

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey! I'm Matt - and the dog in my photo is Boy. He's my 8yr old pit/lab. I am 30 and have a Master's Degree in Social Work. I live in Williamsburg and work a 9-5 at NYU. I've always had pets in my life (always rescues or off the street) so I'm comfortable with all breeds and sizes.

My goal is to be sure I keep your pooch as content as possible while you're away. Just as I would hope someone else does for my pup. I will do my best to accommodate their usual routine and give whatever attentions your pup prefers. I walk Boy 3x/day (8am, 5pm, 11pm) and would be glad to take care of your pup while you're away.

Our place is a 3 bedroom with 3 floors so there is plenty of space for your pup to spread out. They will have their own bed for sleeping and we are stocked with toys thanks to BarkBox. Someone is typically home most of the day and so it is rare your pup will be alone more than a few hours. We are walking distance to a few vet offices and two dog parks. We also have a spacious shared patio on our building that is safe, and offers a place to catch some sun, play, or just soak up some fresh air.

Boy is a generally gentle and friendly dog. He enjoys playing often and will wrestle, nudge, and nip. As I most often do group walks it is best if your dog also like to play and doesn't feel intimidated by large breeds. We have had great success with him and every dog we have sat for thus far.

Also, Boy is a medical mystery and so I have experience providing medication/topicals/ injections/etc depending on the circumstances.

Matt was great taking care of my boy Duke. I needed somebody last minute and Matt was able to work with me on such a short notice. We had good communications during the week I was gone, he followed through on everything we discussed- even giving him eye drops for something Duke caught last minute before my departure. Will definitely be using him again!

Matt was wonderful! During our first meeting, he asked all the right questions and was incredibly helpful with pick up and drop off of our pup. The daily updates were further proof that our dog was having a great time while on vacation!
Matt was great! He clearly has lots of experience around dogs, and our dog was immediately comfortable around him (which isn't always the case). Matt was very conscientious and went above and beyond we asked him to do! Highly recommended and we will use him again.
