About Ron

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My top priorities are your dog's security, health and happiness. I live in a duplex apartment (see last few pics) in a well-maintained brownstone in the historic and safe Upper West Side in Manhattan (West 70s), one short block from Central Park. Clean, comfortable, secure. Air-conditioned for the warm months. I only look after one dog at a time (unless two or more are from the same family) and do not have a pet of my own so no "compatibility" issues. I am home most of the day and my dog guests are never left alone for long. They are normally walked four times per day (a minimum of three times), including at least two walks of 1/2 hour or longer in Central Park, the first one being early in the morning. The dog run at the Planetarium is very nearby and, upon request, can be utilized as well. I have almost ten years of professional pet-sitting experience with an agency and now prefer to do this more or less on my own. I take meticulous care of my dog guests, never leaving them "tied-up" outside a store while I shop, for example--a big no-no with me. Totally trustworthy and reliable. Frequent updates and photos and the occasional mini-video are sent to assure my dogs' owners that all is well. My rate is a little higher than others, but it's because I feel I take that extra little bit of care. I am an avid animal lover and the sentiment is usually returned! (You can check my calendar to see if I am available for your dates, then click on Ask Host a Question and we'll take it from there.)

Could not have been a better experience (for me or for my dog). What can I say? There were walks and play time and I received updates via text and photos. Ron is a calm presence and took great care of my dog. I can only hope that Ron is available to look after my pup next time I'm out of town.

Ron was fantastic - he was very responsive to our initial inquiries and my dog warmed up to him right away at our meet-and-greet. While we were away he stayed in touch with questions and sent us videos of how our dog was doing. When I went to pick up our dog she was in a really good mood, not stressed in the slightest, which is always a good sign. Will definitely book Ron for the next time we are out of town and need a dog-sitter!

Ron was amazing with our four-legged baby. We appreciated that he took the time to meet us before signing us up for the weekend, to make sure that we were a good fit (a sign of true professionalism). We appreciated the consistent updates on Maddie's time away from us. We look forward to using Ron in the future.
