About Carol

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Please follow us on Instagram:

My building is PRO dog! One is almost always with a dog in our elevator! Therefore, there are two parks adjacent to our building (one across the street and one behind). I love taking dogs to Central Park and Riverside Park. Or if you prefer, I live a 5-10 minute walk from 3 dog parks (The famous 72nd Street, Riverside South and De Witt Clinton Park.

I have dog sat all my life! I am a member of the NY French Bulldog Meetup and I don't even own a dog! I take my friend's dogs and miss dearly them when they are not around. I am also a volunteer for the French Bulldog Rescue Network!

I will cherish your dog and treat him/her as my own. I am very strict with my own diet and will do the same for your baby!

I can take your dog on walks 4 times a day or to your liking.

I have completed a PetSaver program and am trained in Pet CPR and First Aid by Pet Tech - the first international training center dedicated to CPR, First Aid & Care for dogs and cats.

I will accept any dog that is house trained but prefer medium or small dogs.

*I cannot take dogs with separation anxiety*

They are welcome to sleep with me in my bed or wherever they prefer.

Your Dogvacay will come back with daily photo updates to cherish his/her memories of Lincoln Center!

Please let me know if you do not want me to bathe your dog. I only use homemade organic products.

Finnley loved staying the weekend with Carol! She provided a ton of updates and pictures throughout the weekend, which we really appreciated since this is the first time we have left Finnley overnight with someone who wasn't family.
Carol spent 4 days with Sammy and took great care of him. She followed his schedule and sent me photos throughout the day. She was even willing to help with a bath. I highly recommend Carol for any pet sitting needs. Sammy looks forward to his next Vacay!
This is our second boarding our baby with Carol. Both times, we were away for about 10 days and she provided plenty of photo and video updates. He definitely looked like he was well cared for and had such a great time with the other dogs. She reliable, responsive, and definitely our go-to person from now on!
Maya had a great time staying with Carol.We received constant updates from Carol and could not have been more happy with our visit. Thanks again!
Carol was truly amazing!

This was the first time we had Carol look after Meeko and when leaving him behind we are always worried about him getting the right attention which he deserves. Our last host had moved away so to find Carol was a big relief, especially when we see Meeko looking super happy and making friends at the same time.

Carol was great at giving updates with pictures and videos (with music I should add) also I appreciated that she was very honest. Carol also has a great eye with the camera! Carol took exceptional care of Meeko and made sure he had a great vacation too.

I'm now pleased to say that Carol has a perminant client and each time we travel and can't take Meeko with us, Carol and the Bow Wow Hotel is the place we will be comfortable leaving Meeko.

Thank you Carol as well for the brilliant Christmas gift you bought Meeko we will send you a picture when he wears them!
Carol is an incredible dog sitter! She accommodated detailed feeding instructions, provided lots of unprompted updates via email while we were away, and even dropped off our pooch right when we returned from vacation.

P.S. Be sure to follow her on Instagram — bowwowhotel — for evidence of her devotion to canine guests.
Cosmo had a blast at Carol's Bow Wow Hotel! He made a couple new doggie friends and had lots of playtime. Carol kept us up to date consistently with photos and videos. We felt totally at ease that carol was taking great care of our fur baby and were able to enjoy our vacation that much more! Cosmo came home a tired pup, a sure sign of a wonderful time. Thank you so much Carol!!
Rupert had an amazing time. Not sure if he even noticed that his mom and dad were missing... We received constant updates and lots of photos. We will definitely contact Carol once we are back in NYC.
Yet another great stay with Carol! Our dog Oliver has stayed with her several times in the last year and every time she is great.
Every time Oliver visits Carol he seems to have such a good time and be so well cared for!
Carol is always great - she is our go to dog sitter now!
Carol was such a delight to work with. She sends plenty of photo and status updates. She also kept him entertained with trips to the dog park and plenty of interaction. Our pooch looked like he had so much fun, we were worried he didn't want to come home with us! One tip: she is quite popular, so there may be other dogs boarding with yours.
Carol was amazing!! She sent me so many photos and videos of my puppy Chago that we both ran out of storage haha. I will definitely keep in touch with Carol and would recommend her to anyone. Thank you again Carol!!
Carol was a fantastic!

She took great care of Chaupi, was extremely comunicative and sent AWESOME pictures. To boot, she taught Chaupi the impossible: a trick where he gets "shoot" while putting his paws up as if he is in a robbery.

I highly recommend Carol
Once again, Carol was amazing. Toby had so much fun with the two other guests at Carol's place. And throughout the weekend Carol sent us great photos of Toby taking long walks along the river and in the park. He immediately fell asleep after his exhausting weekend, but I'm sure will miss Carol and his playmates when he wakes up!
Carol is great. She is caring and loving with DJ and takes excellent care of him. She sends lots of photos and videos showing how he is doing so I know he is in good hand.
Carol is fantastic! She watched our dog Oliver for several days and she was so attentive, sending updates and photos. I could tell she spent a lot of time doting on Oliver!
I was nervous leaving my dog with someone while I traveled but Carol was terrific. She sent me pictures and videos every day and took great care of my dog. He got lots of exercise and lots of love. Thank you Carol.
Carol took such good care of Toby again. Toby always comes home happy and I can tell he had the best time. Thanks Carol!
Carol was amazing for Toby's second visit. Toby had such a great time with her dog Cooper and we were completely relaxed on vacation knowing Toby was in good hands. Toby can't wait to go back!
I am now a repeat guest! I love how Carol updates me with wonderful photos of their time together and repeatedly texts any updates or questions. I know my two whippets are in great hands when they are with her and are having a good time! Thank you! ❤️
Carol was an awesome host! It's the first time we've kept our maltese with someone else, so we were a bit nervous. Carol put our converns to rest almost immediately after we dropped our dog off with her with pictures showing our puppy as happy as could be. Carol kept us constantly updated with new pictures during the entire stay to show that our dog was in good hands. We will definitely be keeping our dog with Carol next time we are out of town.
Carol was amazing with our dog, Toby! She took him to the dog runs near her and also walked him to Central Park, even with the snow and cold weather. She sent us videos and pictures of Toby meeting new friends also hanging out with Carol. He looked happy and content the entire time, which made our vacation so much better knowing he was well taken care of. Toby will definitely stay with Carol again!
My dog loves Carol... And I think that's saying something, because Saucy is very shy. Carol is super communicative, and sends frequent updates with pictures and videos. I know she takes great care of Saucy, including treats and frequent walks. We've hired Carol twice already, and will definitely be in touch when we need a dog sitter in the future!
My dog loves Carol and always has a great time when he stays there.
Carol sent me a lot of pictures and videos of my dog which made feel more relaxed!!
Whenever i travel, i know my dog will be in great hands with Carol,
Highly Recommended!
Carol is an absolutely fantastic host. She took my reservation at the very last minute and put my mind at ease while I was out of town. She took fantastic care of my dog Malia and was sure to keep me updated with their day-to-day activities as well as a lot of photos. I would absolutely recommend Carol to anyone who needs a host.
Carol looked after Gimo while we were traveling to Europe for 2 weeks. Since she had many experience with French bulldogs and even had a foster frenchie Channing, we were very confident to board Gimo with Carol. And we were right! Carol was very considerate and we didn't have to worry about Gimo. Plus Gimo spent a great time with Channing thanks to Carol. Carol took Gimo to many places including central park, restaurant, hair salon, and Japanese fair!! She would even take a cab not to get Gimo overheated!! We are very happy about our experience with Carol. Thank you so much Carol!!!
When I had to be away from my two whippets for a long weekend, I was a bit worried about my options. Whippets are known for being a bit more sensitive and really love human affection so I knew a boarding kennel would not be the best situation for them. I was happy to discover DogVacay and so excited to find Carol just a few blocks away.

It was me with the separation anxiety worrying about my babies but Carol quickly put my mind at ease. She flooded my email with photo updates throughout the weekend, asked questions about what they are most comfortable with, and appreciated and listened to my requests.

My (sometimes) whimpering whippets had a great time with Carol and I would definitely recommend her! They were out and about meeting other pups going on adventures in the parks, and Carol was nice enough to let them sleep with her in bed! I know they had a great time and I would definitely go back to her again!
Carol was, by far, the best pet sitting experience I have had. She was flexible with drop-off and pick-up scheduling and she was extremely responsive to any questions before and during Hudson's stay. Overall Carol was an absolute pleasure to work with. But the best part was how happy Hudson was during his stay. I could tell from the photos that he was having a wonderful time with Carol both on walks in Central Park and at her lovely home. He was returned healthy and very happy and even better trained than he was before we left him with Carol! Due to a bad experience with a previous kennel I was very concerned about leaving Hudson with someone while I was away, but from the moment I met Carol I knew that she would take wonderful care of my pet and I am very pleased to report that Carol exceeded all of my expectations. Highly recommended! I just hope that Carol will be available the next time I am away!
It has been a delight to have Carol take care of Astro. Carol took Astro to many places to explore and even bought a fetch ball that Astro really liked. She was also very patient to work with Astro’s mild separation anxiety in the new environment, and willing to alter her schedule to make sure that Astro didn’t get too anxious for being alone for long. The many pictures she took of Astro were absolutely a treat for us, helping us to feel very much connected to our dog when not being able to physically be with him. You can definitely tell that she LOVES hanging out with doggy friends. She didn’t treat it simply as a side-job, but her enthusiasm pretty much means love and good care are guaranteed. Definitely a 5-start “pawsome” for Carol!
Carol was awesome. She was so excited to take care of Ollie when I dropped him off, I knew he'd be in good hands. She did all kinds of fun stuff with him and took great care of him. More importantly, she remained in constant contact with me over the 4 day weekend, asking me about any questions or concerns and sending me pictures of their adventures. And best of all, when I brought Ollie home, he sacked out for hours!

I would absolutely recommend Carol to any dog owner.
