About Yugi

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Howdy! My name is Yugi, a french transplant living in NJ and working in Manhattan. I grew up in a farm where we had all kinds of animals: dogs, cats, sheep, goats, horses, chickens. As far as I can remember, I've always been surrounded by animals and had many pets mostly dogs such as German Shepherd, Jack Russell Terrier, Labrador. I've always enjoyed pet's company and friendship. I live by myself in a 2 bedroom apartment and there's a plenty of open space for your pets to feel like they're at home. I can sit your pets overnight, during weekends and holidays as well as while you're on vacation.

Yugi is the best! We left our baby to him during our week long vacation and Yugi did a wonderful job taking care of him. Our dog is very timid and had never been in any boarding facilities. But he definitely enjoyed his stay with Yugi. Yugi is very responsible and experienced with dogs. We were updated constantly with pics and our baby seemed as happy, if not happier than at home. We are really grateful for his time and patience and couldn't wait to work with him again~
This is the second time we've booked with Yugi. He was quick to respond to a last minute request and sent pictures of Charlie's stay .Charlie seemed right at home and eagerly greeted Yugi when took him back for his second stay Would use again. H
Loved the picture updates! Zoe seemed like she had a great time. Yugi was very flexible and accommodating---when asking if it would be possible to extend the reservation by 1 day, he was able to no problem!
Marley had a great time with Yugi. Apparently, he met a new lady-pup to play with and they had a blast. I would leave Marley with Yugi again.
This was Ella’s second stay with Yugi, and it was every bit as good as the first! I felt bad because I had to be away for 10 days, but Ella was 100% normal when I returned…no separation anxiety at all!! She really feels at home with Yugi & Lily. Yugi once again sent regular updates with pictures & video, and he practiced her training (she now knows lay down). It’s only been two visits, but it already feels like I’m leaving her with family when I go away. I’m very thankful to have found the perfect place for Ella when I need to go away!
Yugi was the perfect host for my puppy, Ella! I could tell from the minute she walked into his apartment that she felt right at home. I’ve never seen her so relaxed in unfamiliar surroundings! Yugi was able to take her with very little notice, maintained her normal routine, and sent lots of pictures & videos. I will definitely be taking Ella to Yugi’s again :).
My husband and I had to go out of town for 3 days and our puppy is too young to be boarded. We found Yugi on short notice and as a new puppy parent, I was admittedly nervous about leaving the furry baby behind. Yugi made us both feel comfortable immediately and assured us Ella would be totally taken care of while we were gone - and that's exactly what happened. Ella had such a great time with Yugi she wasn't ready to leave when we picked her up. She showered him with kisses as we packed the car and she was such a happy dog! He is very kind, gentle, and caring. We will definitely be bringing Ella back. She may even drive us there next time because she'll be so excited. ;)
My Belle enjoyed her second stay with Yugi. Yugi is always accomodating, very friendly, and I always enjoy the photos that Yugi sends me of Belle enjoying her stay. I will definitely continue to book with Yugi.
Yugi took great care of my dog. I would definitely use him again. Sometimes Yugi took a little while to text back.
Yugi was excellent! My Belle had such a wonderful stay with Yugi during my week long trip. I appreciate his flexibility (due to the class of my flight ticket I was not aware that I could not travel with Belle until two days before my flight). With only a two day notice Yugi was able to accept my request to watch Belle, which myself and my husband was so appreciative of. He sent us photos throughout our trip which made us feel at ease that Belle was in the best of hands, and Belle bonded with Yugi instantly.
Wow! It was the most wonderful experience! Yugi's place was easy to fine. He was very pleasant and kind. He instantly start petting and bonding with Ella. He took me to show me his apartment where Ella would be staying. His place was clean and comfortable. He sent pictures of Ella while we were away. When it was time to pick her up, Yugi had her packed up and ready. It truly was nice to leave her and not have to worry. I would encourage using Yugi.
Yugi took care of my dog Ollie, a 5 year-old Cocker Spaniel, for almost 3 weeks while I was on vacation out of the country. He regularly emailed photos of Ollie and updated me on how he was doing, in particular to make sure he was eating and drinking well. Yugi and Ollie have become good friends and enjoy each other's company. I would definitely recommend Yugi and will use his services again in the future.
Preston had an amazing time and Yugi was an amazing host!
