Hermes had another wonderful stay with Kristin! We loved getting pictures of him playing with Fox - we can tell he had a great time. Communication and drop-off / pick-up were seamless.

Kristin has sat my dog Bruna on several occasions. Always a pleasure. Easy to work with. Kristin's love for animals and attention to detail make her an exceptional choice to take care of Bruna. Plus Bruna really enjoys hanging out with Fox, Krinstin's greyhound, thanks Kristin!

Reliable, Loving, and Professional

Hello! I'm Kristin. I'm a dog lover, horseback rider, and conservation biologist. I live and work on the UWS on a very quiet block adjacent to Riverside Park with my dog, Fox. We would love to welcome your pup into our home while you are away!

Why I love dog sitting:
I have been an animal lover my entire life - I grew up always having dogs as part of the family (along with fish, frogs ...

What Kristin would like to know about your dog

I love all types of dogs! I would need to know the basics such as temperament, any socialization issues, allergies, feeding/walking schedules, etc., as well as favorite treats, favorite activities, and your dog's sleeping arrangements. Fox gets along best with dogs who have similar temperaments - i.e. low-key, non-aggressive dogs who enjoy going for walks but also know how to nap :)

I live in a quiet building so unfortunately if your dog is a barker and/or has bad separation anxiety, it would be suitable to board elsewhere. Your dog must be housebroken and up-to-date with his/her vaccinations.
