Kris was such a delight, sending me updates throughout the walk. So lucky to have someone like Kris to take care of my babies when I can’t!

Hope your dog enjoys cuddling!

Full time Dog Lover, specializing in Senior & Special Needs care as I'm available 24/7.
The way I see it, animals can do no wrong, and every behavior has a reason.

Learning animal behavior has been rewarding in that it has invited me to examine my own actions, and build in patience within myself. Simply, compassion is endless when it comes to animals needs.

What Kris would like to know about your dog

Only ask that your dog is NOT aggressive and most importantly, gets along with smaller animals. Reason being that I wouldn't want he or she to respond negatively to my (2) resident and very well socialized pet bunny rabbits! It's completely fine if your baby prefers against dog parks, as there is plenty exercise in the lush areas in and around the Upper West Side to enjoy on leash! As apart from a dog walker, 'm a writer, and any breaks to get some fun in the sun away from the flashing cursor is appreciated. :)

When Kris watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
As an Upper West Side resident, I'm half a block from Central Park with loads of fun in the sun and grass awaits, as well as an enclosed dog park, and Riverside Park just a short jaunt away. Love to take trips to one of the local boutique pet shops for a treat - with the permission of the owners of course - on cool afternoons for things like doggy froyo!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I'm a small person in a large apartment, and a bigger bed that I don't mind sharing. If your dog is not as cuddly, I have a large couch, many rugs and cool floors for pups that want to sleep looking out the balcony while enjoying the high tower breeze!

Time I'll spend with your dog
Just finished grad school and don't work a 9 to 5 schedule, so I am available to be with your dog 24/7. Your dog won't be left alone at home very much at all, as I personally believe that when dogs are away from home and their owners, they benefit from more attention to feel secure and develop loyalty for their caretaker.
