Sonya & Baxter were terrific! Our puppy was well taken care while we were away. We were also happy to receive daily photos and updates during her stay. Will definitely use Sonya again.

What Sonya would like to know about your dog

Every dog has quirks, just let me know what they are when you drop off so I know what to look out for, if shoes need to be put away, what things help make them feel safe or stressed, etc.

When Sonya watches your pet

Baxter and I go to the small dog-run near fort Hamilton parkway or to prospect park every day. Baxter loves playing and wrestling with other dogs, if they’re into it.
