About Adam and Kaitlyn

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Adam and my wife and I live on the Upper East Side with our Black Lab, Sadie. I got Sadie in college and she's been by my side for the last 12 years. She is extremely friendly, well-trained, gets along with all dogs and would love some doggie company!

I understand that a dog is like a child and I always keep that in mind when looking after someone else's dog. I grew up walking dogs and have been training all breeds of dog since I was a kid. In fact, when I was between jobs, I worked as an NYC dog walker to make some extra income so pack walks are no problem. We're also DogVacay Community Mentors which means that DogVacay entrusts us to conduct home checks and train new hosts for DogVacay.

Our apartment is a large 1 bedroom and is in a pet-friendly building. We live half a block away from Carl Shultz Park on the Upper East side. 2 dog runs are available, 1 for small breeds and another for larger breeds. Also near Ruppert Park, and 1 mile from Central Park. Being near all those parks means your dog has lots of different places to explore!

Our apartment is also located near the Animal Medical Center 24-hour hospital (in-case of emergency) and the vet we trust with the health of our dog is a few blocks away should anything happen while you are away. We would be happy to provide daily updates for you and am happy to accommodate special requests.

We love all dogs and look forward to dog-sitting for you! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Adam and Kaitlin were wonderful hosts! My pup is a rescue and suffers from neglect and separation anxiety, so he can be VERY needy. Adam and Kaitlin were so accommodating and sweet to him, letting him sleep in their bedroom and giving him lots of love and attention while I was away to make sure he was happy. Adam sent lots of pictures of Samson and Sadie together on walks and playing around the apartment so I know he had a wonderful time and felt right at home with them. I can't thank them enough for taking such great care of my sweet baby! I will absolutely recommend them to anyone I know who is in need of a pet-sitter. Thanks again!
Adam and Kaitlyn took great care of Jackson. I felt at ease being away for 4 days. Having a puppy can be unnerving when you leave them. Adam really went the extra mile to assure me that he was fine and adjusting well.
Adam and Kaitlyn took amazing care of my dog, Zoe! They sent me daily updates and pictures, and I knew that Zoe was in great hands with true dog lovers. Adam and Kaitlyn's dog, Sadie, is so sweet and mellow, and Zoe and Sadie became instant friends. Adam and Kaitlyn are responsible, very accommodating, and devoted to providing dogs with a loving home. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to give their dog a wonderful home away from home for a few days!
Being a first time pet owner, I was afraid of leaving my 16 week old puppy with anyone. I interviewed a few hosts and instantly knew that Adam would be a great fit. I asked him to be very stern with my puppy so my puppy can practice the commands I've been working on. Adam also brought his dog Sadie to my puppy Sadie so they can socialize - amazingly, his Sadie was very patient with my crazy energetic puppy!

Adam stayed at my place during this visit since my puppy is still being crate trained. He was responsible, never leaving Sadie for more than 3 hrs at a time in the crate(I told him she could be in the crate for 3-4 hrs max).

He also kept the apartment very clean! :) Thank you Adam for taking care of my Sadie!
Adam and Kaitlyn took such great care of our dog! We were nervous about leaving her somewhere for the first time but they were great to keep us posted with picture updates. Will definitely book with them again!
Adam and Kaitlyn were able to accommodate us by picking Reggie up at another sitter when our vacation plans changed unexpectedly. Not sure what we would have done without them. Definitely recommend!
Adam and Kaitlin were amazing! This is the first time we used Dog Vacay and they really gave us a lot of confidence in leaving our dog with them.
A week before our vacation we met with Adam, who came with his own dog, and had the patience to answer our 1000 questions. On the day we left our dog Kaitlin met us and showed us their place, and we were very relaxed when we left.
During the stay Adam and Kaitlin sent us pictures and videos of our dog almost every day, and she always seemed so happy and in a good mood.
We got her back satisfied and cheerful - no doubt she enjoyed her vacation!
Adam and Kaitlyn were great babysitters to our pup, Josie. They were very flexible on drop off and pick up timing and sent us updates with photos a few times a day. The best part was Josie got to have a friend, Saddie! We have already rebooked!
We had a great experience with Adam while he watched our English Bulldog over the weekend. Pick up and drop off were on schedule and the daily pictures and updates put our mind at ease while we were on vacation. We will definitely be using Adam again in the future.
My husband met Adam for a meet-n-greet. Adam was very concerned about our dog having an accident inside the apartment.

When we dropped off our dog, jasper, there were three other dogs there that morning. One of them was their black lab so that was expected. He did mention that they were sitting another dog but I was a bit surprised to see two additional dogs. We didn't get to see the inside of the place they asked we drop off the stuff and say goodbye outside. So I have no idea what the inside of the apartment looks like.

Throughout two days we got a few updates when I asked how jasper was doing. He sent us one photo after when I asked for a picture.

Then on Sunday during the early afternoon Adam asked me when we'd be coming. He said their superintendent wasn't happy with them and to text him when I get there so they can bring jasper downstairs. So I texted when I was heading over and they met me on the street with jasper and all of his stuff. They said jasper was sweet and well behaved but he had a few accidents and also peed inside his cage on his blanked that they put in a bag. I've never had a situation where jasper peed inside his cage so that was a little weird.

Overall, not a terrible experience. They seemed nice and responsive throughout.
Perfect I highly recommend Adam!
Adam was great, our dogs seems to really enjoyed their stay and got along right off with his dog. When our flight back got cancelled he was very understanding and immediately extend the stay!
Adam was awesome! He took great care of Simon and sent us progress updates a couple times per day. I can tell he had the best time and got plenty of exercise. We'll definitely use Adam again.
I had to board my dog last minute (day before) for the weekend. Adam was super accommodating! I was assured my Frenchie was in good hands. If you are looking to board your dog, I highly recommend Adam. He updated me with pics when I was away. What a wonderful experience! Thanks again!!
Adam was fantastic with my pup Norman! I made a last-minute reservation over a holiday weekend and he couldn't have been more accommodating. He took great care of Norman and I highly recommend him!
Adam was able to host Bruno on only a few days notice, and took good care of him while we were away. I'll definitely use Adam again.
Adam was a great host- very accommodating and welcoming! Lucy loved her stay there- would definitely recommend!
Adam and Sadie were great hosts for our Rhodesian Ridgeback, Mordecai! They were flexible with drop off and pick up times. Mordecai was very comfortable with them and seemed sad to come home! Mordecai received at least one great walk every day. Their apartment has quick access to Carl Schurz. Sadie is down-to-earth and easygoing. We will definitely use their services again!
Adam did a nice job with taking care of my dog Lola. She had a great time with Adam's dog, Sadie and was sad to say bye after her stay.Thanks again!
Thank you so much for watching him! Austin had a great time as always and was well taken care of, we appreciate it!
Austin was well taken care of and had a great time with Adam, thanks!
Very friendly and flexible. My dog had a great time playing with their dog. They really seemed invested in taking good care of my dog, which I appreciated a lot.
Adam was great hosting Badger and Maui. Needed someone in a pinch who could pick up my dogs, watch them at their place, and then deliver them back when required. Adam nailed it on all occasions. Would highly recommend him and his services to anyone needing a reliable, great sitter in the area.
Adam was a fantastic host for our little chihuahua Austin. He was responsive, flexible on drop off and pick-up times, and took great care of him. Adam also sent some fun picture updates of Austin to let us know he was well-taken care of. We highly recommend Adam!
