About David

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey, I've recently gone back to school part-time to pursue a new career. I have lived on the UES my entire life and know all the great spots to take your puppy as well as a great vet (whom I have known for over 15years). My dog, Cooper, is looking for someone to hang out with as well, so your pup must be dog friendly.

I'm a pretty active person and would provide as much or as little exercise as needed. I take my dog to a few great off-leash spots in the neighborhood to play fetch and socialize with other neighborhood dogs.

I will typically only watch one dog at a time so I can give him/her my undivided attention. Being a student means I spend most of my days at home studying and hanging out with my pup. I do have a "roommate" who also happens to be my father (please don't judge). So in case of an emergency in my life, there will be someone here to keep your dog safe and secure.

In a nutshell, I'm just a dog-lover that understands the worries that come along with leaving our dog. So if you want someone who will treat your pup like it's his own, rather than a client, I'm the guy for you. I can promise your dog will be loved and taken care of.

I have so many great things to say about David. This was our first time leaving our dog, who is almost 2 y/o and still full of energy, with someone while we went on vacation. Instantly, I felt comfortable with David. He communicated with us at least once per day, usually more, sending photos and text updates, which we loved! He made sure our dog, Redd, got ample exercise each day. Redd came home clean and happy. We are so happy we found David!
David was great. It was the first time leaving our 6 month old puppy and David made us feel comfortable from the start. He sent constant updates and photos and very flexible at short notice. He was conscious that we are training our puppy and kept to his commands and schedule. Thanks David!
David was great! He was flexible with our drop off schedule being changed last minute, and Cooper was super happy when I came to pick him up. Coops seemed like he didnt want to leave Davids apartment! When we walked towards the elevator he kept looking back towards Davids door as if he was waiting for him to come with us. So cute.

Also - a few weeks before we used David this time I had scheduled a vacay with him, only to have to cancel the day of because my husband came home early. David was VERY understanding.

A+ all the way!
David seemed to really care for and enjoy my dog while I was away. He gave me consistent updates and was responsive and flexible. I would definitely use him again.
I felt comfortable with David immediately upon meeting him. He is warm and sincere and I knew that my boy was going to be left in good hands. David was a great host. He sent me text messages and picture updates regularly. He is incredibly accommodating and responsive. I can tell Dollar had a great time as he came home exhausted. I would 100% use David in the future and highly recommend him.
Another great stay for my boy. He's very comfortable with David.
Again, Dave provided our dog, Mordecai with a great vacation experience!
Our experience with Dave was phenomenal! He provided such wonderful care for our dog, Mordecai. Dave was easygoing and flexible. He let us drop Mordecai off early on a Thursday and pick him up late on a Sunday. We received several texts and pictures throughout the weekend and it seemed he was having a great time! When Mordecai got into some chocolate he found on the street, Dave was quick to call us and dogvacay. Thankfully, Mordecai was fine, but it was very reassuring to be quickly notified of a potential problem. We will definitely use Dave in the future and recommend him to anyone we can.
This was the first time I've left my dog with someone, so, of course, I was a bit anxious about doing so. David reassured me and sent me multiple pictures showing that she had settled in nicely and was doing well. I was able to enjoy my time away from my dog, Annie, and know now that I don't have to be so nervous about leaving her with David the next time I need a sitter! In fact, I've already booked another reservation for next month!
Was just like leaving my dog with a friend.
What a great experience! I felt really at ease leaving with 2 pups with what is-after all- a complete stranger. So attentive and seemed really genuinely concerned about my dogs well being. Could not have been better. Five stars.
Dave was an excellent host for our pup. He took great care of her for the weekend and was on the top of keeping us posted of her progress. I highly recommend him as an option for your watching your dog.
