About Philip

Also sit cats; I am a responsible, attentive, well-educated professional living in the Downtown Brooklyn area in a spacious, clean home, where your dog can hang out and socialize or have its own space if he or she prefers. Fort Greene park is right down the street, so there's immediate access to a large outdoor area for lots of physical activity or just a short walk, depending on your dog's energy level. I'm generally good with dogs of all behavioral varieties and sizes, and only have one dog in my care at any given time. I've included some pictures that give you a sense of the size of my apartment. Note that I work normal business hours on weekdays. Looking forward to meeting your dog!

My dog Daisy had a great time staying with Philip. He was friendly and easy to work with. I'll definitely book Daisy for another stay with Philip.
Philip was absolutely fantastic - we were able to get a last minute reservation with him as well, which was even better. We will definitely be repeat customers!
Second time having Phil watch the pup. Phil was great, responsive, and very accommodating. Would highly recommend!
Philip is far and away the best dog sitter in Brooklyn. Not only does he go out of his way to pick up your pup, but he is an active guy who makes sure they get the attention they need. Highly recommend Phil for future stays.
Philip is AWESOME. He's such a great host and is totally one of Stevie's best buddies. He was also super accommodating when we dropped by just to say hello on our way out of town. Two paws up! We love Philip!
Philip was a stellar host. He updated us regularly about our dog, and he responded to any questions we had, immediately. We highly recommend Philip, and we will be using his services again, soon!
Philip was great!
Philip was great! I was able to enjoy my vacation because he made me feel comfortable all the time with the pictures and videos. He will hear from us again for sure.
I received frequent updates from Phil and wouldn't hesitate to have him watch my pup again! Pickup and drop-off were a great bonus. Thank you!
Philip is great with my senior dog, I know I don't have to worry about anything and he is very quick to respond if I send him a message during the stay to check in.
Philip is a super sweet guy. He sent updates throughout the evening and Stevie just loved him. Definitely will use him again!
Philip was wonderful. Great communications and easy drop-off/pick-up. He sent me photo and video updates throughout the weekend, and I could trust that Lilah was in good hands. Highly recommended :)
Phil was fantastic with my senior dog! We were away for 9 nights and not reachable, and when my dog was displaying some odd behavior he called my brother (who I had given as an emergency contact) and even sent him video just to be sure it wasn't anything of concern. It's so awesome to find someone who will show as much care for your fur baby as you do.
Philip is great!! He responded quickly to a last minute request and fit in visiting our dog to his schedule. He was reliable and professional. When we arrived back home; we were assured as our dog had been looked after very well! Thank you Philip!!! We look forward to calling you again soon!
Phil is a great host!! He's watched Kiko twice now and when we brought her by the second time she ran right up to him to get her belly rub!

From the beginning Phil was quick to respond and easy to work with in terms of the meet and greet as well as drop off and pick up. He sent pics of Kiko to keep us updated and we're sure Kiko enjoys herself with Phil. He will be our go to sitter from now on - highly recommend!
Perfection! Gia was very comfortable from first meet. Always took his time with us and was very in tune with Gia's needs. Sent us constant updates and was always active with her. She always looked happy! We couldn't be more pleased and relieved with Phil's care!!
Philip was great! He was helpful when initially meeting up, flexible enough with his schedule, and thorough regarding any special requirements. His place had enough room for Charlie, my dog to run around and he's right by Prospect Park.

Mr. Charles also seemed to have a great time at Philip's place. I received photo updates and a video of Charlie playing at his apartment that were nice to have while I was away.

A+ would reserve-with again.
Phil is wonderful! Our dog Mason stayed with him for a week and had a great time. He came over beforehand so Mason could get used to him and be comfortable while he was there. Phil sent frequent text and picture updates of Mason doing his favorite things - going on long active walks and snuggling! Mason couldn’t have been happier and looked very well taken care of when we picked him up. Would definitely recommend him and we will use him again!
