I've been pet sitting for close to 10 years. I sit for various breeds and pets for weekends, days at a time, weeks at a time, or just AM and/or PM feedings/play time/walks.
I typically work a 9-5 in midtown Manhattan but I have flexibility to work from home at times. I am very active and exercise a ton I am always happy to take your dog for a run (at any pace) if he/she is into running! Long walks or active playtime is great too! When I'm not active I love to curl up on the couch with a pup and give the pet lots of cuddles and love.
I've New Yorker my entire life, I've lived in Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and long Island. As a native new yorker that means I am pretty much always available for holidays!
I hope to have a dog of our own some day when the timing is right, when I have the money to spoil my pup, and I have a more predictable travel schedule.
More Vacay Info:
A dog that requires 24/7 supervision is really not feasible for me since I usually go to work during the day M-F.
Tell me about, or provide, whatever treats your pet likes, I always have some dog treats on hand, but I want to know your dog's favorite.
Feel free to bring toys or blankets. I don't have toys but have plenty of towels and blankets for your pet to use.
About my home:
I live in the East Village steps aways from Tompkins Square Park (perfect for long walks, jogs, play time, or just hanging out outside). I also live steps away from Doggie Dearest.
My apartment is puppy proof as it is minimally decorated and I never mind if a pet jumps up to join me on the bed or couch. Your pet is allowed anywhere in my apartment! The apartment building is very dog friendly. I live one flight up from the ground floor so there are minimal stairs your pet would have to use.
Please reach out with any questions or comments - there is no detail too small or question too specific!
