Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
This is not our first stay with Alan. Our dog Bane was crying once he realized where we were to drop him off for the weekend. I was sad he didn't want to say goodbye to me, but happy he was excited to see Alan and Messi! Alan took great care of Bane- they went t the park, on walks and Alan made sure he ate. I am confident in Alan's care of my dog ...
Jake loves his walks w Alan. He comes back happy, and energetic.
Alan gives detailed notes about his drop in visits. He is prompt and caring! We are very happy and feel better knowing our dog is in such wonderful hands!
Your local trusted pet sitter
My name is Alan and I am a local dog walker and sitter residing in the Glen Cove area.

My dog is Messi is the current permanent pooch of my household and he gets along great with all types since he was a ...
What Alan would like to know about your dog
Please read this section very carefully as it contains vital information and deal breakers for my sitting preferences.
I do not accept any dog over 60 lbs, there is no exception to this rule. In the past I was very lenient and allowed dogs of all sizes but have since learned that my home is best suited for dogs who are small or medium.
All dogs must either be spayed or neutered, this helps prevent alpha/dominance behavior as well as prevents unnecessary humpings.
I cannot board any special needs pets as my home is not suited for these pets. Living in a ranch style homes means that there are a many stairs inside and outside so dogs who have difficulty walking may not be able to mobilize themselves well in the new environment.
Dogs over the age of 12 cannot be boarded in my home, I do not feel it is safe for old dogs to be in my home and am just trying to prevent any unnecessary falls.
Aggressive dogs are not welcomed since I tend to care for 5 dogs at a time, there has never been a fight under my care and I would like to keep it that way. All of my dogs stay together and I do not separate any dog unless its feeding time.
All dogs must have their vaccinations up to date, kennel cough is easy to get so please make sure your dog has the bordetella vaccine.
Most of my dogs tend to be quiet or learn that being quiet leads to a healthy reward, if your dog is the type to be overly barky or a howler, then it may not work out. Last thing anyone wants is to get a complaint from the neighbors for a dog who barks too much.
Puppies over the age of 4 months are welcomed but please understand that the rate will be higher as puppies demand a lot of monitoring and loving attention. Most puppies who are 4 months or older tend to have the necessary vaccinations but if your puppy does not then unfortunately I will not be able to care for that puppy due to health risks.
