About Iris

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a grad student and can spend most of my time at home if your pup needs lots of supervision!

I love love love dogs! I have a dog -Aston, adorable miniature american eskimo- together so I understand how hard it is to leave your own dog when you leave town.

I walk my dog 3 times a day. The walk is usually about 20-30 minutes.

After walking outside, I will clean your dogs' paws, nose and everything. Showers are also included if needed!

We're in an alcove studio apartment in Hell's Kitchen so we can only accommodate small dogs in our apartments (preferably < 20lbs). Sorry for the inconvenience >.<

Please consider us for your dog's next vacation!

Also, since DogVacay could not remove a defaming review by Beth B. below, I would like to address it. Beth B. had lied about her pup Nacho's size and housebrokenness, two things I always make sure to check before accepting a booking. I cleaned up after her dog when he peed on my laundry basket with my clothes in it, all my funiture, suitcases and etc. On the last day, he started smelling really bad and I live in a studio apartment. I had to crate him so he didn't get the smell on other dogs I was hosting, but he couldn't stand being crated while the other dogs were out. There was no where else for me to put him. Normally I would shower the pup but in this case I couldn't because of Nacho's size and that he attempted to bite when I picked him up. I exhausted all options and eventually asked Beth if I could bring him back to her apartment and watch him there, which Beth declined and said that Nacho has a spot to go potty at her apartment so it wasn't necessary. I did not "suddenly abandon" her dog like she said in her review. I hope this clears things up for everyone. Thanks for your understanding.

Iris did a wonderful job sitting for our Hufflepuff for 4 days. After reading prior reviews, I initially decided to reach out to her. She is very timely with all her responses, answered any questions that I had concerning her experience and any important information that we needed for Hufflepuff's stay. She also asked alot of questions just to get to know Hufflepuff better. While we were away, she sent us both pictures and videos each day. Additionally she responded to all our texts in the event that we needed to get in touch with her. We could immediately see that Hufflepuff was having a great time on "dogvacay" with her and her dog for the long weekend. Iris was very accommodating with pick up/drop off times. Hufflepuff is a puppy and still being potty trained on wee-wee pads, Iris also assured us this would not be an issue in the event Hufflepuff had an accident. We are happy to say that Iris did an outstanding job dog sitting for us and we would definitely use her again.

Iris was wonderful with my senior dog while I was away for almost 10 days, and this was especially appreciated over the Christmas and New Years holidays. Iris cared for Sage from my home at my request, and I found everything in perfect order when I returned. I'm hoping she will continue to sit for me in the days and weeks to come. She is a very sweet, caring and trustworthy young lady.

Iris was a great sitter. She was sweet and helpful during our conversations prior to Barkley's stay, made pertinent questions and answer all of mine. She was flexible and willing to work with us on the drop off and pick up times and she provided us with cute updates while we were away. Looks like Barkley had a lot of fun and didn't miss us one bit! I would highly recommend her to anyone :)

Iris was great even when my dog Atlas had some seperation anxiety. She is always on top of everything and sends frequent updates. Highly recommended!!!!!
I was very satisfied with my experience with Iris. Good availability on short notice. Very accommodating with drop-off and pick-up times. Sent me tons of photo updates. Any queries I had were answered quickly, she was attentive and pleasant to deal with. Reasonable daily rate. I'm a worrier when it comes to leaving my dog with others, but I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with Iris. I would highly recommend her.

Iris was great and provided pictures and updates via email letting me know Hamish had settled in while I was out of the country. I plan to use Iris again and would definitely recommend her!
Iris was the first person I left atlas with for so long because I was going out west. She provided daily updates and photos and I felt very reassured. His second time going, when he saw Iris he instantly started wagging his tail and was so excited to see her. I will be using her from now on for my little guy.

Iris is awesome! I’ve been using for over a year now to watch my dog and she is always super attentive and sends great pictures, videos, and updates which I really appreciate since he is like my baby! My dog, Tee, also LOVES to play with her dog Aston. He’s a super sweet dog and Tee is always excited to see him! I have even had Iris watch Tee while I was in town just so he can get some play time in with his buddy! Tee sometimes gets a nervous stomach when I go away and Iris is always very careful as to what she feeds him as well as making sure he's eating and gives him medicine when he needs it. I also get a nervous stomach leaving Tee but I know he is in great hands with her and I trust she will make sure he stays safe and healthy! A few times I’ve had delayed flights getting back to New York and Iris is always very easy to work with on adjusting a pick up time or even watching him for an extra night. I HIGHLY recommend her!

I am disappointed in the lack of responsibility you showed my pet. I was out of state on business and in no position to rush back to rescue my dog after your sudden abandonment. I hope in the future you host peoples beloved pets with more maturity and responsibility to both the pet and the worried owner.

Iris is fantastic! My dog Pepper absolutely loves Iris and her dog Aston. We received daily text messages and emails with pictures/videos. My wife and I were really put at ease knowing Pepper was in good hands and having the time of her life. Thanks Iris!

We used Iris for a last minute weekend away and she was wonderful. Very accommodating and sent us a bunch of pics to see how our two yorkies were doing. Will definitely vacay with Iris again- thanks Iris!!
Iris was an awesome host! She communicated often and sent several pictures of Chutney while we were away to make us feel at ease. I would definitely choose Iris again if I need another sitter.
Iris took great care of Potter during my long vacation. She was very easy to communicate with and sent multiple photo updates. Potter sure had a great time! I will definitely use Iris again for my next vacation.
Iris was great! My first time using her since my normal dog sitter was unavailable. I was out of town and she made sure I was kept up to date on my little guy. :) Thanks again!
Picked Chloe up very happy and I was updated with photos and details of her stay daily! :)
Iris was extremely flexible and willing to work with us on our schedule and other little requests that we had. She was also very available to meet up so I could drop my dog off right before I left, and pick her up right when I got back into town. Thanks!
