Matt is a fantastic choice as dog sitter! He is such an animal lover - and grew up with pets his entire life. He has a great, safe apartment in NYC that is dog friendly. Matt gets along with every dog he meets!! I would highly recommend him and trust him with my pets.

I love dogs more than people. fact.

I have lived with two dogs in my house for my entire life. Each dog began in our house at around 4 months to one year old.

I just love dogs. I believe every dog deserves to be treated as nicely ...

What Matt would like to know about your dog

I would like to know how they interact with other dogs. I would like to know how they act when they are hungry or need to go out. I would like to know if they are scared of anything (vacuums, thunderstorms, blenders, etc.).

When Matt watches your pet

I live very close to the west side highway, which has a lot of nice paths right on the water going the entire length of Manhattan. It has a lot of nice park areas and grassy areas for the dog to play, as well as a few dog parks within 15 minutes of me. I have a bunch of tennis balls and other items that dogs would love to play with, so, if they are interested I would take them to the park near me with the fenced in tennis court and play fetch.
