About Derek

Leave your baby in the hands of the biggest dog lover in NY!! I grew up with dogs and have been caring for them my whole life. While I'm not in a position to have my own just yet, I'd love nothing more than to care for your precious pup! I have a spacious studio in the beautiful, safe and quiet neighborhood of Jackson Heights, Queens. It's a great neighborhood for dog walking and there's an awesome dog park nearby. I live in a dog-friendly building, where more people have dogs than not. My apartment is clean and comfortable, where there's plenty of room to play and big, cushy furniture for your pup to crash on. I work at a music licensing house during the week and am always off on weekends. I also have one work from home day during the week. On days and nights off I am very much a homebody, so I'll always be home to spend time with your pooch...probably watching Netflix. I know that the most important thing to you as a dog owner is that your dog is safe, loved and getting the absolute best care. That's why you're here and not opting for the kennel experience. I promise you wont find anyone in this city with a bigger heart or a greater love of dogs. I'll give your pup the care, love and attention that you would give at home. Your baby will be in good hands with me.

We love Derek as do or 2 goldendoodles, Jack & Millie. He is always our first choice. This was Millie's first vacay with Derek (she's only 10 months old). It was also the first time that we were away when Derek had to work a few days. He coordinated with our dog walker and the pups had a great time!

Derek was a wonderful host for our 2 babies over Labor Day weekend and the entire process was stress-free and professional. They are big girls and not always the easiest to handle but he showed a clear comfortability with them right away, and put our minds at ease. He communicated with us over the weekend and shared photos, knowing we would be missing our pups. Derek even accommodated us last minute by letting us drop them off very early in the morning so we could catch a flight. Highly recommend, we will be using him again!

Dylan & Jack love Derek, and so do we. We are about to book him again for July 4th weekend. Dylan & Jack get extremely excited when we pull up to Derek's apartment building and can't get in the front door fast enough, with tails wagging.
As always, Dylan and Jack had a great vacation with Derek. He has taken care of them before, and they were very excited to see him. Derek is very attentive
to D & J's needs. Administering their vitamins and meds when necessary. And, they get plenty of exercise. He keeps in touch with us when we are away, always sending a photo or two. Derek's love of dogs is evident, and we look forward to having him take care of Dylan & Jack in the future.

Dylan and Jack had a great dog-vacay with Derek. He is wonderful with them, took excellent care of them, and we will definitely send Dylan and Jack to vacation with Derek again.
Our two goldendoodles, Dylan and Jack, had a wonderful vacation with Derek. They were well taken care of and had lots of attention. From the moment we introduced our guys to Derek we could tell their experience would be a good one. It was love at first sight for all. We will be sure to use Derek again.
