Chris was great. My cat Mookie and my dog Lola both give him two paws waaay up for his pet sitting while I was away! They even posed for several selfies so I didn't have to miss them too much from so far away. I'm glad we've made a new friend in the neighborhood! :)

Chris was great; he spent lots of time with our pooch and really understood how to handle him. We came home to a clean house and a happy and healthy dog, we definitely recommend highly!

Work @home, <3 walks, love 2 play

I've long felt a kinship with our furry friends and have enjoyed engaging with them and assisting in their development and play. As a designer who often works from home, pet care is a great option for my schedule and a welcome distraction from my sketchbook. I grew up with a pack of Standard poodles but have cared for and boarded primarily smaller breeds because of the size of my apartment (on the smaller size ...

When Chris watches your pet

I share a Washington Heights apartment with my girlfriend whom also works from home with me. It’s a bustling neighborhood within walking distance of Fort Tryon park.There are lots of families and activity, so it feels very safe, which is nice for walking at night and in early morning. We don’t have a yard, but I love to go out and about because I've really come to enjoy the character of the location.

At present I'm home full time so I have lots of availability for walks, taking pups to the dog park (there are two within walking distance of my apartment), as well as any activities you might recommend. I know that every animal has a different personality and I am more than amenable to working with and adjusting for that in all my canine clients.
