Unspayed Females Accepted, Neutered Males Only
No Females in Heat
Mary Alice was very professional caring and took such wonderful care of Akio. She was really flexible with the meet up and pick up times as well. And she asked questions so that she could give Akio personal care. This was my first experience with using Rover dog boarding service and was a bit nervous but Mary Alice made me feel comfortable by giving me daily updates and pics. I highly recommend her.
Excellent as always!

About Mary Alice
Calling Upper East Side Dogs!
Welcome to my Rover.com page! ***Good News Update! (June 2018) Hello friends, especially my current clients and their wonderful dogs! I am delighted to announce that I will begin increasing my availability starting June 2, 2018. Stay tuned, and please feel free to send booking requests, especially beginning in June. As of June 2, I will be gaining more dog time as I return happily to the work-from-home life, at least in the foreseeable ...
What Mary Alice would like to know about your dog
I offer dog parents assurance of a good, safe, and fun stay while you're away. Your precious pooch will enjoy one-on-one care! No double-booking (well, except under rare circumstances and with prior client approvals. An example would be a case of dogs who get along together and have stayed together previously).
Your pup will get my personal and undivided attention during the stay.
The best dogsitting or dogwalking experience is an alchemy that combines my genuine interest in taking care of your dog (or cat) with your insights and instructions for keeping your companion animal safe and well.
Toward that end, I want to know everything about your animal: size, breed, and general health; temperament and personality; spay/neuter status; how your dog gets along with other dogs, or with cats; walk and play habits; feeding routines; allergies; and other issues that may affect the care plan (ie, separation anxiety issues, skittishness; aggression triggers, medication). With all of this information in hand, we have a much better chance for a successful stay or visit.
Because I have a small apartment, I prefer small- to medium-size dogs. I live near many parks and can offer nice long walks. Unless I have an extended stay with a dog, and have learned about his or her temperament, I typically avoid dog runs and instead choose a nice walk--the best way to get to know each other. I find that the more walks we take, the calmer and more happy the dog becomes.
