*PLEASE NOTE: If you are new to us, we much prefer to organize a meet-n-greet before we look after your pup. In the long-run, we think it's much better for you guys to know that your pooch is in good hands, and we know your dog is a good fit for our space*
We're a couple made up of a professional dog walker (who's also a photographer) and a work-from-home graphic designer living in Greenpoint Brooklyn, NY. We both run our own dog walking/boarding company - Shaggy Hair Dog Walking - and we share the workload of walking your dog at least three times a day and keeping your pup company the rest of the time.
Our principles are:
- 1 walk per day is the big one for human/canine exercise and will span 30 minutes or longer.
- All your doggy dietary considerations are of the utmost importance.
- We'll love your pup and treat him or her as if he's our own!
Even though we're huge dog lovers, our home is pet-free, and on the first floor of a dog-friendly apartment building in with parks, emergency dog food supply stores and a vet nearby.
We offer dog walking as well as dog boarding and services, and can arrange dog food/supply pick up, vet or grooming appointments as well.
**Please note: because of the size of our apartment, we are best suited to small/medium dogs only**
Transport is via G train, B62 and B43 bus or East River Ferry.
*Shaggy Hair Dog Walking is the name of our business, and is a play on the shagginess of owner Rafe's hair and our mascot, a Wheaten Terrier named Molly Anne. We walk, board and dogsit all types of dogs: shaggy, scruffy, fluffy, wiry or short-haired!
