About Paulette

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello there & welcome!

I am looking to take care of your pet in my comfortable, cozy home while you are away on vacation, weekends and holidays. I have experience with owning and taking care of dogs. I worked for a year with a local NYC pet service company house sitting & walking dogs, volunteered at a dog shelter, and took the HSU (Humane Society University) online course Interpreting Animal Behavior for Safe Handling

I also lived with a pitbull named Hudson for a couple of years and a mixed breed named Lucky. Growing up it was my dog, Cotton. I really love dogs and their companionship, so they would be very well taken care of. Of benefit, I am self-employed, and thus work from home most of the time so your pet would get a lot of attention. There also would be only one pet at a time for the safety of your pet (unless there are 2 pets in your family that need boarding at the same time). No resident dogs or any other pets reside here.

$45 is per night.

Cat/bird 24 hour stay $20.

Of note:

1. I really enjoy helping elderly and
disabled dogs. I have an affinity
for elderly people & that has
crossed over to dogs.
2. There would be a minimum of
three walks per day.
3. Near Leroy Street Dog Run
and the Hudson River.
4. Near Greenwich Village
Animal Hospital.
5. Dog friendly building.
6. Cats and birds are welcome. I owned
a lovebird for 15 years named
Birdette & have house sit cats.
7. Non smoking home, clean & very well

Superb! Paulette exceeded our expectations. We received adorable picture updates and email correspondences on a regularly basis. Our special little Oliver warmed to her immediately and formed an obvious bond. She was attentive to his daily hygiene needs after each walk, ensured he was walked a minimum of five times per day and remained a constant companion with him while exploring the city. It was obvious he enjoyed his vacation. We highly recommend Paulette to take care of your furry loved ones. H&T
Lino loved his stay with Paulette! Our dog is rescue and can be hard to figure out and Paulette completely aced it! She sent us great updates with photos that made us feel relaxed about leaving our pup. Lino can't wait to stay with her again!
Paulette was wonderful with Violet and went above and beyond to make her comfortable. I also loved the terrific photos she shared with me.
Paulette was amazing. Initially before I brought Viper over, she messaged me with all the things that I should consider bringing for him which a few things I would not have thought of. So I was truly grateful. It was my first time every leaving Viper with someone that I did not know, but her reviews gave her away. She was always very responsive when I would text her or call to ask how Viper was doing. She would send me pictures of him to show me how he was playing and enjoying his stay with her and when we picked Viper up, in his bag she had surprised us with some pictures she had developed of Viper.
Paulette is great with Henry! She gives him lots of walks and attention which he loves. She also sends me updates and pics while I'm away. I am very protect of my pup and would definitely recommend Paulette to anyone. ~Jan
I feel so very luck to have met Paulette. My dog Lola is nearly 12 years old and though she’s still spry, like most of us she seems to be getting a little quirky with age. Paulette didn’t seem fazed and was such a thoughtful caretaker, sending me daily updates with fabulous photos. I’m pretty sure Lola had a great time – when I went to pick her up she was still very happy to sit with Paulette and unlike other times she’s been with a sitter, Lola was very relaxed and at ease all the way home. For me, that spoke volumes about Paulette’s caring nature for animals. I will most certainly be booking with her again.
Paulette is the best! She sent me daily updates and pictures of my pup every morning. Definitely will use her next time!
We left out dog Daisy (Labrador) with Paulette for two nights. She was very attentive and caring with her, sending us updates and pictures throughout the stay. Highly recommend her as any dogs next vacation.
My dog Levi had a wonderful time over five nights with Paulette B. I appreciated the frequent updates and Paulette's concern about Levi throughout. In fact, Paulette changed her schedule to fit the needs of my elderly dog, which was really above and beyond what we initially discussed. Really, she did much much more than other sitters would have done! I have total confidence in Paulette and would love to have Levi stay with her again. It was a pleasure communicating with Paulette and I would have to say that the entire experience was 100% positive. Thanks, Paulette!
Paulette was a wonderful and trustworthy host for Dillon. He loved his stay and I travelled knowing my little guy was in great hands!
Paulette has taken care of our Japanese Chin, Sachi, a handful of times now -- and we have nothing but great things to say about her. When we're away, she sends us adorable photos, keeps us updated, and Sachi returns every time happy and healthy. She takes him around town and to the waterfront, so he gets plenty of fresh air, exercise, and attention. We feel so lucky to have found her!
Paulette was great! She was wonderful with Doogie. She texted updates and pictures throughout the day, which always makes a mom feel assured. I would definitely recommend Paulette!
Paulette was wonderful! She was so kind and caring and made my Oscar feel right at home. Everyone knows and loves their own dog's personality but I truly felt like she "got" Oscar and appreciated what a quirky pup he was. Great stay, stay for Oscar, peace of mind for me. Thanks Paulette!
Paulette is an absolute gem! She took amazing care of my dog and was so wonderful about sending updates and the most adorable pictures. I would highly recommend her and will most definitely be using her again!
Paulette took care of my elderly black lab while I traveled out of the country for work. Tallie had a minor accident while I was away and Paulette did all the right things to make sure she was taken care of at the vet. I've used her again since this incident, knowing that Tallie was in very good hands.
Non-dog owners will never believe this but when it comes to finding a trust-worthy sitter for your dog, I stress more over who will watch my four legged friend than any other service provider I could hire (or babysitter for that fact?).

To put it succinctly, Paulette was phenomenal. She understood my concerns as a dog owner and was incredibly accommodating and flexible in respect to my schedule for the meet and greet as well as drop off and pick up. She made sure to cover all of the important items that I had forgot to ask or share with her as well as provided me with a short list of items to not forget in order to make my guy's stay as comfortable as possible.

Aside from periodic emails with some action photos of my guy enjoying his vacation, I know that Spencer had a great time and plenty of attention by the sheer fact that he greeted me when I came to pick him up, but then went back in to Paulette's apartment to go relax....he did not want to go!

If you are looking for someone who understands dog owners, appreciates the attention that a dog needs in NYC and goes the extra mile to serve your dog, look no further.

I wholeheartedly recommend Paulette and look forward to using her again in the future.

Well worth the money and significantly greater value than a dog hotel!
Paulette was Eddies best friend for a few days and he came home happy and healthy. We had only boarded Eddie with Paulette once before this stay and Eddie was super excited to see her. I recommend Paulette very highly to anyone wanting their dog to get a lot of love as well as care.
Paulette was great! She sent me lots of updates and pictures, and my pooch was very happy when I picked her up. I will definitely use her again. Thanks Paulette!
Paulette was wonderful! My dachshund Eddie obviously adored her. Before Eddies stay Paulette was very helpful and gave clear instructions about what was needed. Her thorough planning helped me feel confident about leaving him. She sent pictures to show Eddie out in his new environment making friends. It was very apparent that Eddie loved his time there and I would highly recommend Paulette.
Paulette was very communicative about Nigel's stay and he enjoyed his time with her. A genuine dog lover!
Paulette was fantastic! She was incredibly responsive during the planning process. She sent daily emails and pictures of Pinky, which made missing Pinky a little easier. Pinky seemed so at home and at ease with Paulette. They seemed to have had a great time. I would definitely recommend Paulette!
