About Emily

The two adults in our family are writers who work from home, but since we travel occasionally, we can't currently own our own dog. However, our two loving, responsible and gentle grade-school age sons adore dogs—and we'd love to host, cuddle, and help care for your family friend. All of us will take your dog for walks, give them special treats, and treat them like family.

We live in the South Slope, right near a dog run, and we have a small backyard where your dog can play. We're also three blocks from Prospect Park and can go on long rambles there! There's an excellent vet right nearby as well as resources to buy dog toys and food.

We generally take small-medium dogs, but larger dogs are fine, as long as they are gentle and good with kids. Meet-and-greet required.

Emily and her family are so sweet and took wonderful care of my Australian Shepherd. From our meet-n-greet to the overnight stay, this host was a great communicator and very accommodating with drop-off and pick-up times. She kept me informed as to how he was doing, which enabled me to relax and enjoy my time away.

This host was a wonderful family that really helped me out in a pinch when I needed to board my dog at the last minute. My dog, Zephyr, was well taken care of while I was away. I highly recommend this host.
Emily and her family are so wonderful and I always feel comforted my dog, Oliver, is loved, taken care of and in such good hands while he's with them. I feel so lucky to have found this family. Thank you! Oliver and Cynthia
We always have a great experience with Emily and her family. They are definitely dog people and are very loving and responsible. We trust them 100%. My dog always tries to pull the leash towards their door when we pass their house—that's a good sign!

Emily and her family took great care of Sadie, our 9 month old labradoodle, for the weekend -- she came back happy and tired, just as all dogs should be! It seemed like she got lots of cuddle and play time at home and at the dog run, which is very close to their house.

Thank you to Emily, Clive and your sons for entertaining our Golden Retriever, Lola, for a few days. She loved the attention and exercise that your family provided. We really appreciate the great care she received. She returned to us a very happy and tired(!) dog. Thanks again. We definitely would use you again and highly recommend you to others.
Rob, Randa and Lola S.

Emily and her family were absolutely awesome! They quickly made our dog Oliver feel right at home. Overall an excellent experience!
I've left my dog with Emily and her family multiple times now. They go above and beyond and love my dog, Nick. We're neighbors, and when I walk Nick by Emily's house, he turns into their gate. He obviously felt at home there. :)
Our dog has stayed with Emily three times now, so that probably says it all. We trust her and know that our dog is taken care of. I love the photo updates!
Emily and her husband and kids are lovely! Their home seemed very comfortable and warm, and our two dogs seemed right at home. Even though they're a bit misbehaved, Emily didn't stress us out on our vacation and the pups were happy as clams when we picked them up. Thanks for a great stay!

Emily and her family took wonderful care of our Mojo. Pictures and posts sent to us really helped us have a carefree vacation. Mojo enjoyed accompanying the boys on their walks to school and they also took him to the local park, bookstore, etc. As some pictures showed, he also enjoyed snuggling with them at home. Mojo was returned to us happy and healthy and I wouldn't hesitate to have him stay with this loving family again.

Emily and her family looked after our Boston Terrier excellently while we were out of town for a week. Their home seems really friendly and cozy, and they sent us loads of pictures of our dog while we traveled - with each one showing that he was clearly comfortable and relaxed and well loved. We'd definitely ask them to look after him again in future.

I've used Emily on a few occasions, and she is absolutely wonderful. My dog Cyan just loves her and her family. The children are very gentle with him. Emily always replies to messages promptly and updates me with photos of Cyan. I would definitely recommend Emily and her family to dog sit!

We were really happy to have placed our dog — our first child — with Emily and Clive. They asked a lot of appropriate questions about Nick that made me feel really good about leaving him with their family for 5 days. Their boys are really gentle and LOVE dogs. They've been taught how to make dogs comfortable around them by sniffing their hands, etc. I highly recommend this awesome family!

This was my first time leaving my dog with a sitting service and I couldn't have been happier. Emily and her family were great and her boys treated Libby like their own pet. They sent me lots of adorable pictures of Libby playing with the boys and were very flexible with me about pick up and drop off. So nice to know my dog was surrounded by lots of love while I was away! I've already recommended them to my neighbors with pets!
