About Sara

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am an avid animal lover, and although my work schedule does not allow me to have my own pet I would love to have the chance to take care someone else's dog for the weekend! I live near Central Park so I would walk your dog there quite easily. I'm very active and would love to go for light jogs if the dog is capable of doing so. I also work from home two days a week so if necessary I can take care of them during 2 week days!

Sara is excited to take care of your pups for the weekend!

She has a great apartment on the Upper East Side with lots of natural light. It is close to both Central Park and Andrew Haswell Green Dog Park on the East River. Sara is a runner so she's willing to take your dog on runs, if that is your thing!

Sara has great experience caring for her dog from when she was young. She also works from home twice a week and is flexible with scheduling. Your puppers will be pleased as punch to stay with Sara!
Sara was amazing with Althea! She sent tons of pictures and texts to keep me updated, and spoiled her with affection. A perfect DogVacay host!
Jazz always comes back so happy from Sara. She is a living and gracious host that goes the extra mile to make our pup happy
Sara is the best! She is extremely kind and accommodating.
Middy has had multiple vacays with Sara, both overnight and daycare. We received pictures regularly and lots of updates, we could tell Middy was in heaven! Sara was more than happy to take her to Central Park and long walks in the neighborhood and give her lots of attention. And she was super flexible when our schedules changed, she did not hesitate in making sure Middy was well looked after until we were able to get to her.
Sara gives us total peace of mind
Kind, attentive, accommodating, AMAZING! We had to change sitter due to a schedule conflict, so we were a bit nervous to bring Jazz to a new sitter and new house, but as soon as she met Sara, she was in love! We got daily photos and updates and could clearly see that Jazz had the most amazing week with Sara. The feeling was mutual with Sara & her boyfriend towards Jazz, they love dogs and go beyond to ensure comfort and happiness of your beloved pooch. Will definitely be using Sara’s services again!
Sara is such a kind and generous person. You can't go wrong leaving your pup in her care. She was very attentive to our pup's needs and sent us updates throughout our trip. Top notch all the way.
Sara is not only a genuine, lovely person but she is very accommodating to both you and your dog's needs. She watched my Yorkie Bradley for one night and was kind enough to take the time to stay in touch and send me updates and pictures while I was away. Bradley isn't a very high maintenance animal but she was still thorough and asked many questions along the way which made me feel really comfortable about him being gone from me. She even rearranged her work schedule so I was able to drop him off at my convenience and he wouldn't be alone for the day. She's wonderful. I would highly recommend Sara for your dog's stay.
Sara was amazing! Ruby is a very friendly and easy going dog, but tends to be a bit of a momma's girl and not want to leave my side. She surprised me by instantly warming to Sara and her home though. Sara was very accommodating for my needs and kept me abreast of how Ruby was adjusting throughout the day/night (seemed happy in every photo).

I would definitely use Sara again for my dogvacay needs!
Sara was so sweet with Maci! She was willing to take her very early in the morning so I could get to work on time. She sent me photos and updates throughout the day. Maci was exhausted after having so much fun with Sara. I will be asking Sara to watch Maci again!
Sara was WONDERFUL! Very accommodating, especially when I had my dates mixed up and arrived a week early! She was flexible and understanding and was able to watch my 3 poms at short notice. Then, she texted me a bunch of photos while she was watching them.

I would highly recommend Sara and I hope to use her sitting service again in the future!
