Markus has been an excellent go to cat sitter for my two kitties here in Manhattan. Whenever I have to go out of town I feel at ease knowing he is only a phone call away. He will stop by to feed the cats morning and night, refill their water bowl and change out their litter box. What sets him apart is that he will actually spend time playing and caring for my cats. I ...

Markus puppy sat my Maltipoo, Truffles, for the very first time a few months ago when I left town for the weekend. Immediately, after that weekend, I knew it was the best decision I've ever made because Truffles would jump for joy whenever she saw Markus. I'm really glad I met Markus because it's really hard to find a dog sitter who is as trustworthy, loyal, and caring as him! I give him my highest ...

Markus was my student for 3 years at Indiana University. He house sat for me and took care of my dog (a Bichon Frise) on numerous occasions. I trusted him completely in my home and he took excellent care of my dog. He often stayed in the house for a week at a time, was highly reliable and left the dog, plants and house in good order. I highly recommend Markus!

Performer seeking to watch dogs :)

I have a wonderful, super friendly 16 year old golden retriever at home (currently living in Louisiana with my parents), who I have loved caring for over the course of her life. I would love to care for your older, more mature dog who is lovable and friendly. However, I would also love to watch your puppy or younger dog just as much! I seek to get to know each animal individually and welcome any ...

What Markus would like to know about your dog

I'd love to know about any behavioral issues and how good the dog is at walking close to me. NYC streets can be tough with cars running red lights and turning as they wish, but if I know ahead of time I can reign your pup in and keep him or her safe! No breed preferences here!

When Markus watches your pet

Where we go on walks will completely depend on your preference. I usually don't like to go to far from the dog's home; however, I do love Central Park, Prospect Park, and Riverside Park depending on your location in the city. I love to play fetch with the dogs I watch or exhaust them by running around for a bit. My mom always calls it the heebee-jeebees when our dog runs around uncontrollably. But that means less uncontrollable energy at home, so it's a win-win! :)
