Sara was great with my little baby Chloe! She was super friendly and attentive, so I knew Chloe was in good hands. I received updates each day without having to ask how she was doing. She also accommodated a last minute extension when my flight back was delayed for 6 hours, which was much appreciated. All in all - if you’re looking for a trustworthy and reliable sitter for your pet, book Sara!

Sara was the absolute best. She was flexible on drop off and pick up times. Most importantly Rusty loved staying with her and she took great care of him. I highly recommend Sara to anyone.

Sara is obviously a dog lover! She understands dog and is very caring. We trusted her with our young puppy and would not hesitate to board him with her again. Highly recommend!

dogs>people (just kidding...maybe)

Sometimes I like dogs more than I like people! In all seriousness, growing up I always had a dog. Throughout college and in my post grad, I ran my own "doggy day care" and watched neighbors and fellow tenants fur babies. Although I am currently a masters student, my evenings and afternoons are pretty flexible, and my schedule also allots for a completely open 3 day weekend. I have a spacious and cozy one bedroom ...

What Sara would like to know about your dog

If they are a senior dog, of course I'd want to know if they're on any medication so I can distribute it to them properly or if they have any kind of physical problems (i.e. if I need to put a small ramp up either onto my bed or to the couch so they don't strain themselves going up and down on my furniture). I'd also like to know personality traits, whether or not they have any kind of anxiety issues (i.e. going on the subway, getting into a cab, walking in unfamiliar areas, going into a park that has other dogs, noise, bright lights, etc.) just so I can know what triggers to avoid if any. If the dog has a very specific eating/restroom schedule I'd love to be made aware of that so that I can stick to that schedule. I said before I'm more than willing to host small to medium dogs, but preferably no bigger than 35 lbs. I love all breeds, and even though my apartment is spacious, it's still a common New York one bedroom that would be much more suited and comfortable to smaller breeds. I'm also much more familiar with smaller breeds and their tendencies/likes/dislikes since I grew up with small breeds (a Maltese and a Shihtzu). Also, during my time in my post grad when I watched dogs, the three I primarily watched were a Pekingese, a Maltese, and a Pomeranian, so I'm a lot more experienced/knowledgable with smaller breeds.

When Sara watches your pet

I'm an active runner, so if the dog is physically able to go on leisurely jogs, I'll usually take the dog running with me! When I care for senior dogs, I'll opt out the jogs for paced walks, and will usually bring a carrier for the dog if he/she gets tired and needs to be carried back. Living in Long Island City, I'm in the proximity of many fun and large parks, as well as being close to the Hudson River, so I'd absolutely take advantage walks in those areas. I am a current masters student, but most of my activities are dog friendly, so if the owner permits, usually I'll bring the dog with me to voice lessons and smaller academic classes, just so the dog doesn't have to sit at home for extended periods; instead, he/she can explore new areas with me in a non-stressful environment!
