Gayle is the most loving dogcare giver I know. I have known Gayle for over 10 years now, she has such a magic touch with all animals! She is responsible and kindhearted and I couldn't recommend her for pet care more highly!

Outgoing People Person Loves Dogs

I had Ashley, a Cairn Terrier, for 14 years, and then rescued a Bijon Poodle Mix at 9 years old on behalf of a senior citizen friend who had some problems. Ashley, the Cairn, was a rescue and due to growling at me, I needed a trainer after 30 days. After one session with the trainer, Robin Kovary, I corrected 10 things I was doing wrong, and began to work on sit commands, walking issues ...

What Gayle would like to know about your dog

Before dog sitting for a dog in their house, I would need to let the dog get to know me in their territory first. Several walks over a few days would be good to introduce us to each other, as well as sitting down with the owner either in the living room and/or in the bedroom where we will sleep. The dog has to know I am not a stranger in the home. It is usually best, in my experience, for the dog not to have to stay somewhere else. But they need to be used to the dog sitter in order for me to stay in their home. If they come to my apt., I want to know if they have separation anxiety or if they can stay alone for an hour in a new place without barking. If not, then that dog will be best taken care of in their own location. I love all breeds of dogs.

When Gayle watches your pet

I believe in exercise for all dogs, small and large. If in my neighborhood, one walk will be around and through Washington Square Park, either morning or dinnertime. Every walk I make sure to include an around the block - so four blocks - to give the dog air, ability to smell things, and socialize with other dogs. Fun things will include socializing, treats, nice food, tennis balls or little rubber balls, and nice comfy dog beds or the couch to curl up on.
