Kristen and Leslie (two marathoners) love dogs and also love to run. So there's nothing we'd enjoy more than to walk or run your pup! If you're going away for a weekend, you can rest assured your dog will get tons of playtime and attention. Also, we live close to Central Park, where a great walk is only a few steps away!
To tell you a little more about us:
Leslie (at right): As a California native, Leslie ran D1 Track & Field at UCLA, where she conquered the Steeple Chase race. And her best friend and childhood dog Petey the dalmatian was by her side the whole way. Now, she now works as an Editor for All You and Health magazine.
Kristen: A Cali girl as well, Kristen first joined her Track & Field and Cross Country team in 6th grade, and she’s been running ever since. And by her side growing up, was her black lab Eb. She now works as an Editor at Conde Nast trade publication Footwear News.
And before joining DogVacay, we were frequent sitters for Suma the bulldog (the adorable pup in our profile picture!) Check out a testimony from her owner, Vanessa Juarez:
"My husband and I have an English Bulldog we love dearly. What’s great about Kristen and Leslie is that they love her like she’s their own. When we drop her off, we know that she is not only going to be taken care of, but she’s going to have a good time -- going on walks, going to the park to play ball and socializing with people and canines. They go above and beyond. When we forgot to include our dog’s allergy meds after dropping her off, Kristen went to a pharmacy and picked some up. When we’re out of town on vacation, we have complete peace of mind that our Suma is in good hands. On a scale of 10, we’d give Leslie and Kristen a 12."
