About Mercedes & Ryan

We have a two-story apartment in a Brooklyn row house (3/2, oversized kitchen, wood and tile floors), and the back yard is ours exclusively. We both work at home (editing and writing), and while we obviously have the space for a dog, we're just not quite ready to own -- though we love hanging with them!

We walk or bike during the day as a break from working and love to have a pup friend accompany us. Coincidentally, there's a park with a dog run nearby.

We travel some weekends but are often home and happy to watch a dog while you're away.

Mercedes and Ryan we're awesome! Really took care of our little guy while we were away on holiday. Highly recommend to anyone!
Couldn't have gone better. Ginger had a great time and Ryan and Mercedes kept me updated with photos the whole time she was there. Great backyard too which I know my dog really enjoyed hanging out in.
Ryan and Mercedes were wonderful hosts! Our dog, James, stayed with them for 10 days while we were out of the country. We were kept in the loop, and were sent photos and videos on a regular basis. James always appeared happy and well taken care of. One of the many perks about Ryan & Mercedes, is their beautiful garden - James clearly loved spending time there lounging in the sun. When we picked James up he was in good spirits and well fed – he didn’t have the usual “after-boarding blues” that he typically has when returning from the kennel. We would definitely book with Mercedes and Ryan again!

Highly recommend these guys enough - it is obvious our pups love going to stay.
Our dog Nigel can sometimes be a handful. Ryan and Mercedes were real pros - handling his special needs with no problems. They fed him his oral medication and staggered his walks so he didn't run into too many other dogs in the neighborhood. We'd be all too happy to have Nigel stay with Ryan and Mercedes again!

Ryan and Mercedes are great and our dogs love going to stay with them. We have used them 3/4 times and we already have another stay booked! I would highly recommend them to look after your pups.
Ryan was great. My dog was in very good hands, and I'd recommend these guys to anyone!
Mercedes and Ryan were fantastic hosts for our 10 month old puppy! They were great communicators, always responding within minutes if not seconds, and gave us tons of adorable photo updates during our pup's stay. Our puppy can be insistently playful and sometimes boisterous, and it was clear that she had a great time playing fetch with them and getting lots of attention from everyone in the house. Also, she's wary of being left alone in new places, so it was nice that someone was always there. We left them with a laundry list of instructions, expecting to maybe be called "crazy parents," and found they instead were very appreciative. I cannot say enough good things about them! We look forward to booking with them again next time we go on vacation!

Mercedes and Ryan were awesome and so accommodating. They were super responsive and really easy to work with. Our little guy, Sam, is a recent rescue and has some separation anxiety and abandonment issues so we were delighted to have him stay with Mercedes and Ryan--who both work from home. They sent us photos and a cute video while we were away. If we weren't moving out of Brooklyn we would definitely love to have Sam stay with them again!

Alfonso had a great time staying with Mercedes and Ryan. We weren't able to arrange a meet and greet before hand, but when I came to pick him up Alfonso seemed right at home. I would definitely choose to have Alfonso stay with Mercedes and Ryan again!

Mercedes and Ryan were so good with Maura! She seemed to feel right at home and I felt comfortable leaving her with them for the week. They took great care of her and updated me with daily pictures, which were very reassuring and sweet. Maura did great in their home and I would book with them again!

Mercedes & Ryan were so great with my dogs and it was almost like my dogs didn't want to leave. I also did not feel worried after they took the time to really talk to me. I felt like I was leaving my dogs with friends rather than people I'd just met. I look forward to hopefully being able to book with them again.

This was Sasha's second great stay with Mercedes and Ryan. They were really helpful and accommodating on short notice, and took the extra time to make sure they understood Sasha's medical needs. Would definitely have Mercedes and Ryan watch her again next time we're out of town!

It was our dogs second visit to Mercedes and Ryan and we were worried that the dogs would know they were about to be left and would be anxious. It was the opposite! They pulled us to the door and were so excited that Monty was jumping up and down on the spot. We were sent lots of photographs and it looked like they were having a wonderful time and were certainly very relaxed and happy when we collected them. We would certainly use them again and cannot recommend them enough.

Merle had another great stay with Ryan and Mercedes! Lots of updates and they even offered to drop him off when we got back. Thanks!
Oh man, did our Merle have a good time with Mercedes and Ryan. And because they were so thoughtful and reliable and all-around wonderful, we were able to have a good time and not worry about how he was doing. Win win!
It was our first time using DogVacay and we kept changing our mind as to whether we were needing dog care for one or two days, but, Mercedes and Ryan were very patient and understanding!

They live in a lovely home with a great garden, which our two dogs ran straight out to, without giving us a second glance. They sent us a lovely photograph of Peggy and Monty looking very much at home - Peggy lounging on a very comfy looking armchair.

Monty, being a rescue dog, has some issues and can be nervous of men but was absolutely fine with Ryan.

When we collected the dogs, they were playing in the garden and seemed very relaxed and happy. We would definitely use Mercedes and Ryan again to care for our dogs and would recommend them highly.

Mercedes was a fantastic host for Phoebe! She had us come over for a meet n greet first, so I was perfectly assured that Phoebe would feel comfortable. Definitely would recommend!
Mercedes is THE BEST an owner can ask for! Very responsive, incredibly caring and quite the playmate for our dog. He got so much attention, I may catch him sniffing his way back to her house. Absolutely would recommend her to anyone.
Mercedes was a great host for Sasha. We did a meet n greet the night before and Sasha immediately made herself at home. Mercedes was made sure she understood any special needs or precautions, and left us feeling certain that Sasha was in good hands. Mercedes was really easy to communicate with throughout the process and we would not hesitate to have her watch Sasha again in the future.

I was really nervous to leave my Boxer, Patience, with a stranger but after meeting Mercedes I felt at ease! She is so warm and friendly! She really made me feel comfortable! Patience had such a great vacay! She got to go to the park and the dog run. I'm so glad to have found someone I can trust with our baby! Also, Mercedes was able to accept Patience last minute with no issues!

AMAZING. Stanley, my cocker spaniel, is a loving and sweet dog when he wants to be- but can be weary of new people...that being said.... Stanley magically and automatically liked Mercedes! I was so surprised. She has a very calming presence, nice and attentive. Also very flexible- I made a day dogsitting appointment late at night for the next morning and she responded quickly. I felt so at ease while I was away from Stanley because I knew he was being well taken care of. I will definitely be using her services again!

Mercedes and her roommate were wonderful with Katara. We came to pick her up and and she almost didn't want to leave. I would definitely leave MsK with Mercedes again!
Mercedes was great with Chigurh! She sent pics early in the visit, from when they were chilling on the outside patio! Chigurh was sad to leave, I think. I would definitely have her take care of my pup in the future!
Mercedes was very professional and accommodating. She asked questions about my dog, and seemed to really care about her well being. Thanks!
I was in a bind and needed a last minute sitter. Mercedes came to the rescue. She responded quickly and took great care of my Oye. Shes very understanding and pleasant. I will continue to send Oye to Mercedes and highly recommend her as a sitter for your precious buddy.
