I can't say enough great things about Kelly! She walked our 2-year-old Cavalier King Charles every day for about a month and we had the best experience! She was very attentive and sent great pictures along with a detailed recap after every walk. She was very personable when we met in person and was flexible with changing schedules and extra walk requests. I really felt like she loved my dog which made me comfortable with ...

Tues. night we needed a sitter for a new dog so Monday night I wrote to 8 folks all nearby. She originally made the same mistake many sitters make - they re-ask you the date - re-ask you the times- etc. But she immediately wrote back saying she saw our date and time and requests and could do it and even had a suggestion for his the initial meeting (as he has sep anxiety). She apologized for ...

Dog selfie expert!

I love dogs and cats!

I work for Rover because of this love for animals and I will treat your animal as if it was my own pet, no matter what. I send really detailed reports to people with pictures as regularly as possible. I don't mind sticking to schedules and if for some reason I can't I will let you know beforehand so there are no surprises. I understand that pets can get sick ...

What Kelly would like to know about your dog

If a dog requires any special attention or needs I would like to know before sitting or walking them. Also, I would like to know any tricks they may know or are learning so I can work with them regularly.

When Kelly watches your pet

When your dog or cat is with me, I will treat it as if it were my own. I am very good at following directions and have no issue sticking to exactly what is asked. I understand how important for an animal to be on a routine and changing it can be stressful for an animal.

For dogs, I enjoy going on long walks and checking out parks around New York. Having a wonderful pet companion would be a great adventure for both of us! I understand that not all dogs need the same things, some don't like long walks and others want to run and burn off some energy; I do my best to work at your dogs specific pace. I am happy to accommodate any special requests. Also, when the weather is not perfect, I am ok playing in-doors if there are things we can do.

For cats, I enjoy playing with them (I have a cat of my own). If I sit for your cat I will spend quality one-on-one time with your cat to make sure they get a good human interaction to avoid separation anxiety. I also understand if an animal likes it's space, I can feed your pet, clean up after it, and move on if needed, just let me know what is best for your cat!
