Hello there pet parents! My legal name is Sarah, but my friends call me Sala!
I'm a recent MFA grad from NYU with some time and a deep love for animals. I'm not in the place to adopt one myself, so it would be a honor for me to care for your little one! Growing up, there was never a time without a dog in the house, so I have 20+ years of care taking experience of young and old dogs. I know the struggle and apprehension that comes with leaving them for a while, and hope that the high level of attention and care I can provide will put your mind at ease. My roommate is also a pet lover and self identifies as pet-deprived, so a lot of affection is guaranteed during the stay!
We live a few blocks away from a dog park in lovely Bed-Stuy in case your dog is social, exploring together the neighborhood is a must, and if your dog likes toys, we have a lot in common. My dad has a dachshund named Stevie-Ray that I take care of occasionally with severe separation anxiety, so I'm comfortable with pets who need extra love and a secure attachment for the stay. If your dog needs a special pace for walks, I'd be happy to accommodate.
Unfortunately I am only able to care for pets that have already been house-trained at this time.
Reach out if you think I might be a good fit for your dog's needs.
