About Kristin

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I'm Kristin. I'm a dog lover, horseback rider, and conservation biologist. I live and work on the UWS on a very quiet block adjacent to Riverside Park with my sweet pup, Fox. We would love to welcome your dog into our home while you are away!

Why I love dog sitting:
I have been an animal lover my entire life - I grew up always having dogs as part of the family (along with fish, frogs, lizards, guinea pigs, horses, you name it!). Over the years I have been a dog walker, animal shelter volunteer, and dog sitter and have been fortunate to spend time with all types of dogs!

About your dog:
I live in a quiet building so unfortunately if your dog is a barker and/or has bad separation anxiety, it would be suitable to board elsewhere. Your dog must be housebroken and up-to-date with his/her vaccinations.

About my own dog:
In September 2015 we adopted Fox, a retired racing greyhound. He is a kind, low-key, affectionate dog who loves to sleep on the couch or on his bed when we aren't outside playing or out on a walk keeping a lookout for squirrels! We are a very active family and love to spend time out and about with Fox, and would love for your pup to join us :)

Kristin has sat my dog Bruna on several occasions. Always a pleasure. Easy to work with. Kristin's love for animals and attention to detail make her an exceptional choice to take care of Bruna. Plus Bruna really enjoys hanging out with Fox, Krinstin's greyhound, thanks Kristin!

Kristin is amazing. Really can't say enough about how wonder our experience has been with her.
Kristine took of our Schnauzer Toto and I can only say it was such a magnificent experience! I got a daily updates on Toto and every day that went by he looked happier with his new temporary home and new friend Fox.

Toto has strict diet of raw patties which can be an issue with some dog sitters but Kristine took care of his diet with absolutely no problem. I would highly recommend Kristine with no hesitation to take care of your doggie while you are away.

Kristin was GREAT with Zoey. She sent tons of pictures which I loved. Zoey and her dog got along great, which I could see through the photos. She was quick to respond to my text messages. When I returned home, Zoey was there happy as a button. She seemed to have had a great time. Would definitely use Kristin again for future vacays!
