We could not have asked for a better sitter! From the beginning, she was extremely accommodating to our somewhat hectic schedule. She watched Zoe, our 50lb Pitbull Mix over the Thanksgiving holiday, and we can say with certainty that our dog had the best Thanksgiving ever. Gwen took her to her family home in CT on Thanksgving day, bringing our pup to the beach and going on long walks through the fall leaves. We got ...

Gwen was extremely professional, prompt, and responsive. I felt like our dog was in good hands. When we came home our dog was tired from all of his walks! He seemed to be very comfortable with Gwen. We will definitely use her again.

Gwen has watched all 3 of my dogs over the years and I have never seen someone so happy to take a dog for a walk. She plays with them for hours and surprised me by bathing and nail clipping all 3, even my most difficult dog. She is enthusiastic and I would have a hard time believing you if you were disappointed in her services.

Let your dog have a vacation, too!

Whether you're heading out on business or for pleasure, you can rest easy knowing your dog is in great hands. I am known as the "dog whisperer" among friends and family and have trained and cared for all 4 of my dogs (who live back home in Connecticut) and have also worked in multiple veterinary hospitals. I have no problem giving any types of medicines, and will conform my schedule to your dog's. I am ...

What Gwen would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences, I love dogs of all shapes and sizes. I would just like to know if they get along well with other dogs, have any anxieties or fears (thunderstorms, have accidents when I leave for short periods of time, etc), and a basic overview of their personality; every dog is unique!

When Gwen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Central Park; around the Upper West Side

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
If they normally sleep in a crate or have a special bed, I ask that you bring the crate/bed to my home. If not, I have my futon or bed for them - whichever your dog prefers!

Time I'll spend with your dog
All the time in the world! When dogsitting I never leave the house for more than 5 hours at a time.
