Once again, Ilona provided wonderful care for our dog Tina. Ilona treats and loves Tina as if she were her own, she takes her on lots of walks and sends us regular updates and pictures. Knowing that Ilona is caring for our dog whilst we were away gave me such peace of mind and makes leaving her that little bit easier. Thanks again Ilona!

Thank you, Rachel! Tina is very special to me!

We have so many wonderful things to say about Ilona. Ilona watched our 4 month old puppy for a whole day. She is an absolute natural and our puppy loved her. Ilona was extremely flexible with our schedules and the best part was that she provided updates with pictures with how our puppy was doing as the day went on. She was very active with our puppy the whole day as well. When it was ...

Dogs Love Me since I Give Love

Every dog has its own personality and I enjoy meeting every different character and adjust to it accordingly. I love to play and go for walks and dog playgrounds. We have FDR river leadin to the Carl Schartz park and usually I take dogs once a day to the playground and two additional walks around the house and John Jay park. Dogs feel my natural, open and honest open feeling to them. I have had ...

When Ilona watches your pet

Every dog is different and we do different things accordingly. Some simply like to run with toys, others cuddle and be hugged and be relaxed. Whatever dogs like I adjust so we both have fun! Here's where we'll take our walks:
I live close to Carl Schurz Park and John Jay Park, we have two dogs park for small and big dogs there. Or just walk around a neighborhood.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
Wherever he or she is most comfortable. We welcome snugglers! :)
