Recently I was out of the country for two weeks on a work trip, it would be my first decently long time apart from my 1 year old Golden Puppy, so I was super nervous. Gavin went well above and beyond to calm my nerves with frequent updates, and consistent communication. Nothing but incredible things to say about it, I was totally at ease and will be working with Gavin again very soon. Additionally, he ...

NY based adventurer & dog lover!

I’m Gavin and I absolutely love dogs. I’ve always had a huge spot in my heart reserved for pups and know how important and significant they are to our homes and in our lives. I’ve always had a family pup growing up and I began dog sitting in order to meet new people and new pups!

I grew up on a ranch in central Texas where our pups had plenty of space ...

What Gavin would like to know about your dog

Before a stay, I always try to make a meet and greet happen so we can get to know one another. I also like to learn a bit more about your pup:

- What is your pup’s normal schedule like? What can I do to make sure I don’t interrupt their preferred routine?
- Does your dog have any medical issues or behavioral tendencies?
- What is the best way to spoil your pup? Do they have a favorite toy, treat, or game?
- How much activity does your dog need to stay happy?

When Gavin watches your pet

On a stay with me, your pup will be safe and happy. I love staying active and your pup is welcome to join me in and out of the city. Whether that is long walks through Central or Prospect Park or hikes in the country, your pup will stay active and well-exercised. I also live near a couple of city parks and dog parks, so with your permission, we could cavort with other furry friends there.

I’m also a runner so if your pup needs to get out some extra energy, we can go for a run together! Some of my favorite running spots are along the west side highway in Manhattan. It’s a beautiful view so I know you’ll love seeing your pup pose in front of the water!

My day to day schedule is fairly consistent. I work Monday through Friday in a dog friendly office with the flexibility to work from home if need be! I can easily spend time with your dog during the week and definitely during the weekend! I can’t wait to spend time with your pup!
