About Marcus & Antonio

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have always loved animals and taking care of them from the first time we meet them. We usually have instant connections with them and they become our buddies as we are warm and friendly guys. We do like to make sure they are taken care of the way that their owners would want as every dog is different and requires their specific ways and we like to follow the owners ways. We're two at home so supervision will be very available. If you have any questions for more information please send us a message.

Marcus and his partner are a great team to take care of your pup. Both are in the arts and they live on the trendy Upper West Side, where I have no doubt whatsoever that they will take the absolute best care of your dog.

Their apartment is neat, clean, and situated on the ground floor of a well-maintained brownstone, which makes it easier for older pups who have problems climbing stairs. One of them is almost always at home so your pet is rarely left alone.

Additionally, their apartment is very close to Central Park, which is perfect for walks. They are quickly going to be an in-demand dog power couple!

Marcus and Antonio took wonderful care of my two dogs in my home. I'm so happy to have met them and plan to hire them whenever possible so that my dogs can stay home and safe when I travel.
Marcus & Antonio were wonderful dog sitters to our dog Jack! If you are in need of a sitter on the UWS, look no further. They were very responsive and easy to meet up with prior to doing our first booking. And making arrangements for drop off was also seamless. They sent so many photo updates with captions, which makes you so happy to know that your dog is enjoying himself and also that they are enjoying your dog too. You want to find people who will enjoy spending time with your dog while you are away, and these two definitely will. They also have a great schedule and can give your dog lots of walks and attention. Again, no need to read further, just book them. :)

Marcus and Antonio were amazing! Normally my pup can be a little nervous to leave me, but he was so excited the moment he arrived. They kept me updated throughout Pierre's stay and gave him lots of love. I tend to worry when Pierre is with other people but I truly had nothing to worry about with them and didn't feel anxious knowing he was in great hands! Any pup is lucky to spend time with Marcus and Antonio

Another fantastic stay with Marcus and Antonio! They were so accommodating with a last minute request and Sadie looked so excited to see them! Simply the best.
HIGHEST recommendations for Marcus and Antonio! I've already referred them to a friend of mine and I just picked my pup up yesterday from her vacay. They are quite possibly the NICEST people you'll ever meet. They're accommodating, reliable and extremely knowledgeable on how to care for a pet. They kept me in the loop with messages, photos and videos every day (and multiple times a day!) My puppy has a ton of energy and all of the evening photos they sent showed her totally pooped out after a long day of play and walks (which is so amazing and not something we see too often). I will most certainly be booking with them again in the future!

These guys are 100% Awesome. They're kind, on-time, thoughtful (always checking in with "Mom & Dad" and ADORES our Dexter. We can't say enough about them. Okay. maybe: Hire Them For Your Next DogVacay! David & Tammy and Dexter
Cody excitedly greets Marcus & Antonio when he stays with them. They have a wonderful positive energy, get Cody out & about, always send a photo & update & Cody always returns to us happy & contented. If you need someone to care for your pup, you can't go wrong with Marcus and Antonio.

Another great visit for Cody with Marcus and Antonio! They took great care of Cody & sent a photo & update. Cody was happy & in great shape when we picked him up.
Marcus & Antonio were true gems! From the our first meet & greet to the drop off, I felt that Grover was going to be well cared for. They sent so many pics throughout the weekend, which I loved. Made me feel like I knew what my little guy was up to. They helped pack Grover up and meet me curb side so that I didn't need to hail another cab home after my trip home. I would strongly recommend and will definitely be utilizing again! :)

Cody had another great visit with Marcus & Antonio! They are responsible and responsive, and most of all - they took wonderful care of Cody - balancing the impact of the heat & Cody's need to get out. I highly recommend Marcus & Antonio.
Our dog, Cody, spent a terrific day with Marcus and Antonio. An incredibly hot day, they got him out enough to get a little exercise while being sensitive to the effect of the heat. They sent helpful photos & updates during the day, so we could see Cody was doing well. Their caring, wonderful manner (and air conditioned apartment!) ensured Cody was comfortable and contented, as were we. I highly recommend Marcus & Antonio. I would happily leave Cody with them again.

These two guys are the BEST- they go above and beyond for your dog!!! Our dog Simba was sooooooo happy in all of his picture updates, we HIGHLY recommend them! If you can book with them, then YOU are the lucky ones- your dog will be well cared for!
WOOF-WOOF!

That's Dexter, my puppy, saying THANK YOU, to Marcus & Antonio C for making his stay so enjoyable.

These two guys are terrific, kind and thoughtful. The "two degrees of separation" proved to be "magical" too.

Dex loves Marcus & Antonio, and you will too!

Great hosts! Were very flexible and extremely caring. Would reserve again.
I could not have been happier with Marcus and Antonio. Response times were extremely quick throughout the process. Marcus and Antonio's home was clean and organized and we felt very comfortable leaving our Caesar with them. They are truly nice guys, and were excited to welcome Caesar into their home. They sent pictures every day, sometimes more than one, and it seems they gave Caesar more exercise than he gets at home!! Caesar looked happy and comfortable in all photos, so much so that I wasn't sure he'd want to leave. This was our first DogVacay, and they made us feel so comfortable. We could tell from the photos and the messages Marcus and Antonio sent that they treated Caesar as their own, and with love. We would definitely aim to have Caesar go on vacation with Marcus and Antonio again. Thank you guys!!

Marcus and Antonio were great with my dog. She came home tired and happy from her stay with them.
Our dog, Penelope, really enjoyed her stay with Marcus and Antonio! They are so kind and attentive, and took great care of her. They sent pictures of her throughout the time we were away, took her for long walks, and gave her tons of attention. I know she will be happy to have them keep her again soon! I highly recommend them!

Marcus and Antonio were great! Our maltese poodle mix, Riley, can get a little bent out of shape when I leave him for any reason. Marcus and Antonio took extra care to ensure that he was acclimated to them and their apartment. When they felt he was a little out of sorts on the day I dropped him off, they took him for extra walks to cheer him up. The pictures that were sent were great to see! When I picked Riley up, he was his usual overly excited self to see me. The difference this time is that he also gave Antonio kisses goodbye (Marcus wasn't at home otherwise I am sure he would have received the same love). Riley is incredibly stingy with his kisses and showing affection with others, so this was a tell tale sign that Marcus and Antonio created a warm and loving environment for him while we were out of town. We hope to use Marcus and Antonio again on our next vacation!!
