Dog Walking in Bushwick, Brooklyn
Book a dog walker to give your dog a 30-minute walk around your neighborhood.
About: I'm a huge dog lover who hasn't made the commitment to be a full-time dog owner. I understand the time and attention it takes to be a dog owner in the city and I'm so happy to give that time and attention while dog sitting. A former roommate had a blue heeler, so I know how to handle high-energy dogs in my apartment. I grew up with two dogs (a golden retriever and a miniature poodle mix) and I have years of experience in dogsitting. During college, I volunteered at the Central Missouri Humane Society, which has given me the skills to work with any size dog and handle any behavioral problems your dog may be dealing with at the moment. Huge fan of tug-of-war, tennis balls and trips to the dog park (if that's what they're used to!). I work from home so can easily give walks throughout the day. Also make sure to give a dog a routine and plenty of longer walks at the beginning and end of the day. I also make sure food and any other potentially harmful things are far out of reach for dogs. I also never leave an animal alone for long periods of time. When I dog-sit, I want to spend as much time with the animal as possible!
“Dora is incredibly patient and sweet with my dog. Even though he takes some time to warm up, she always comes with a positive attitude and gives him space to come to her. Definitely recommend booking Dora!”
“Laura provided excellent dog walking services for Bosley. Her punctuality and clear communication about her arrival were impressive. She was never late and always let us know when she was en route, which was always punctual. Bosley developed a strong connection with her due to Laura's caring and attentive nature. He can be a tough pup to impress, but she was very sweet with him and he took a strong liking to her. I highly recommend Laura to anyone seeking a reliable and compassionate dog walker.”
“Ashley was so nice to be able to walk Marci last min! She was able to watch out for any scraps on the ground so that Marci didn’t get anything she shouldn’t.”
“Jennifer was great, not only did she give my dogs a nice walk but she was willing to feed them and give them meds. She also provided a great review of the walk and lots of photos.”
“Lex takes our old pup Roxy on regular dog walks. He's reliable, great at communication and takes wonderful care of her! Would recommend in a heartbeat.”
“So happy I chose Erinn to walk my golden retriever while I was on vacation. She was always on time, sent pictures of the walks and I felt very comfortable leaving him in her care. I would highly recommend.”
About: I have two dogs of my own. One is a 10 yr old female pit bull and the other is a 15 yr old male dachshund. They are well trained and I’ve had them since they were puppies. I also have a female cat which is 6 yrs old now. My schedule is very flexible. I am willing to house sit other friendly pets as well. I am very flexible with rules and suggestions. My furry pets are super friendly and are low maintenance. My environment is very calm and quiet and I absolutely love going on long walks. You will not regret choosing me to dog sit or house sit any of your friendly furry pets ! Tumblez (my dachshund) and Lady (my Pitbull) are excited to make new friends! Maddie (my cat) doesn’t come out much but when she does, she loves to play with others! Safety Plan : -While on a walk, any and all dogs will be walked only while on a leash and will walk at a good distance from me to avoid any escapes. -All doors and windows are usually shut at all times to avoid any escapes or door bolting -I will only take friendly dogs to dog park if it’s requested by the owner - I will always meet with each owner that needs a sitter first to make sure we are both comfortable with me being their dog sitter - I will constantly show all dogs and puppies an equal amount of attention and affection at all times to help with anxiety or comfortability For further question, comments or concerns please feel free to contact me Being a pet owner makes it much easier to know how to accommodate other pets and I also have years of experience working in pet stores and other animal facilities. By following both pet owner’s instructions and my own personal rules at all times and make sure pets are comfortable and receiving lots of love and attention when needed.
“Rory is communicative, friendly and very accommodating. He gives my dogs plenty of attention and I don't feel I have to worry about anything when he comes to visit. Thanks Rory!”

“Majelia was great! Very communicative, reliable, and I'm sure my pup had a wonderful time with her!!”
“Kept in great contact. This was my first experience with Rover and it was perfect. My mind was at ease being able to trust my babies were being taken care of by someone who loves animals.”
“My first time using this service, starting to love it. Stephanie in minutes became part of the family. Luna female GSD got a good grade on her first walk. Looking forward to increase the time and to activities.”
“Great, speedy communication and really easy to coordinate with especially since it was a last minute need. Dorito had a lovely time. Will definitely be asking Iris for help again.”
“Lonnie is super helpful and accommodating! And our pup loves him. We will definitely continue to have him walk our dog.”
“Kat was super awesome with my dog! He’s deaf and Kat took extra time to learn his signs and took him on a great walk. He was so happy and content when I got home and Kat was super flexible with pickup changes. Would definitely recommend Kat!”
“Sara did an awesome job walking Jill! I definitely plan on having her back.”
“Michelai was awesome walking my fur baby, Ms. Chyna. Although Chyna was a puller Michelai never complained. She always came on time and Chyna was always happy to see her. I would use Michelai again.”
“Kimberly is great with pets. She cares and shows great enthusiasm when coming over to walk and feed my pup. If my pup could type he would say the same!!!!”
“Robin is amazing with all animals, he loves dogs and dogs REALLY love him. He has experience with all kinds of pups, and can equally entertain those with an insatiable appetite for playing fetch just as well as those who just prefer a snuggle on the couch. Robin's previous dog was a sweet but nervous big guy, who needed some extra accommodations during walks, so he is definitely equipped to read cues and make sure that the dog feels safe and comfortable. Most importantly, Robin absolutely adores dogs, he is super reliable and a great communicator. I definitely vouch for Robin!”
