About Mathew & Shikha

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
You can be sure your pup is in good hands while you're away. As avid dog lovers, we love being around dogs and your pup will be treated like he/she were part of our family. Bucky (our young black Lab) is always excited to have temporary siblings :) We live in a dog-friendly doorman building in Hell's Kitchen and are lucky to have private outdoor space.

We take Bucky for 3 walks a day and could do more should you need. We work 10 mins away from home so can easily come back for a mid day check-up.

There are many dog parks within walking distance and we'd be happy to take your pup out for some doggie socializing. We all know that a tired puppy is a happy puppy :)

Shoot us a message and let us know if you are interested, and if you wish we can also schedule a meet-n-greet.

PS: If your stay falls over a long weekend, it will be $50/day

Mathew and Shikha were great! My dog Red really got along with their dog Bucky, who is adorable. Mathew and Shikha sent frequent picture and text updates, which I really appreciated. Thanks!
Mathew, Shikha, and Bucky took great care of Kenley while I was away. They were very accommodating to my travel changes and even dropped her off the morning after.
Kenley loves staying over and spending time with them!
They sent frequent photo updates and made sure she ate her food and was very well taken care of!!
If they're available, they would be my first choice for watching over Kenley.
Mathew and Shikha (and Bucky) provided a great stay for Effie! It was her first time away from home, but she had a great time. We received constant updates and lots of pictures, and they went out of their way to make her comfortable/adjust her diet when she wasn't feeling well. She'd love to stay with them again!
Mathew and Shikha took great care of Annie. She had a great time playing with Bucky and I could tell how happy she was from all of the pictures I received. We will definitely be back... thanks so much!
Great stay. Fast response to initial inquiry. Plenty of updates and pictures. Easy to coordinate meet & greet, drop-off, etc.
Matthew and his wife were excellent thank you for taking such good care of my little guy.
Mathew & Shikha were fantastic and are definitely on my short-list of hosts. It's always comforting to know your pet is in great hands and with people who truly enjoy dogs!
Mathew was very easy to communicate with. Prompt answered my messages and request to meet and greet. He understood my puppy needs and caracteristics and acomodate her well. His dog was friendly with my dog and I could tell they got allong well. He updated me with pictures during her stay. All good! I recommend!
Ladybug had the best time with Matthew & Shikha & Bucky. She barely wanted to leave! They took care to make sure she took her meds, and even sent us daily updates with pictures. She looked very happy while there!
Matthew & Shikha were wonderful! I reached out to them with only a few days to spare and they were incredibly accommodating with everything from our meet and greet to the drop off and pick up times. They took great care of Toby, sent pictures, and even fit a trip to the dog park in to his one night stay. They also have a great outdoor patio that is a rare find in NYC. We'll definitely be back!
Lemon loved her dog vacay with Mathew&Shikha and their dog Bucky. Lemon wished she didn't have to leave Bucky because she was having too much fun with her new best friend. Mathew&Shikha kept us updated the whole time with pictures and texts, and were extremely responsible dog sitters. You can tell that they are complete dog-lovers and gave Lemon lots of attention. We will definitely be hiring them again!!
Mathew and Shikha kindly took my last minute reservation, and took good care of Millie over the weekend, and sent a few photos too. They're nice folks!
Mathew was fantastic, sent lots of great pics of Marsi's adventures with her temporary foster brother Bucky at the park, on walks, taking car trips to the wilds of Brooklyn or tuckered out on the bed or floor after a long day of playing...pretty sure her vacation was at least as much fun as mine!
