My dog Ollie is slow to warm up to people, so I was pleasantly surprised to see how comfortable she is with Vicki right off the bat. I felt really good about leaving Ollie with Vicki because she clearly loved Ollie and treated her like one of her own. Vicki is also a diligent dog mom herself and knows everything to watch out for with dogs. She sent pictures throughout the day, and I was ...

Vicki is amazing! She is incredibly responsive and responsible. She went out of her way to make me and my dog feel comfortable. My dog quickly feel in love with her. And I felt so good knowing my dog was happy and safe. Vicki sent great updates and was super understanding of all my crazy dog-momness. Her dog Charlie is beyond adorable. You will definitely fall in love with Charlie and Vicki! Thanks, Vicki!

Vicki was amazing with watching my little French Bulldog, Maxwell. I went away for 4 days and was worried how Maxwell would be without his Mommy. From the moment I met Vicki, she was very present and attentive to Maxwell's needs. Vicki even thought of a few things that weren't on my radar, which made me confident Maxwell was in good hands. It was also helpful to know Vicki works from home which made Maxwell ...

Rescue Dog Mom + Work from Home!

Hi, I'm Vicki! I'm a proud dog mom to the sweetest 5 year old scruffy pup named Charlie. NYC has been home all 5 years, and we sure love all of the fun places and things to explore. I have learned so much from other dog parents, from training tips, to places to go, to health advice and the list goes on. The saying is so very true: "Sometimes the rescue pup is really the ...

What Vicki would like to know about your dog

Please let me know all the important things~ how your dog interacts with other people and other dogs, are there are any triggers or super-fears? Reactions to weather? Any allergies or special diets, or health items that I should know. Also that your pup is up to date on vaccines!

I love all breeds! So no preferences when it comes to dog walks and in home visits/ stays. (I lived with, helped care, walked and got to love on a Great Dane for 6+ months here!)

For dog day care and boarding, since my 20lb little guy will be sharing space, I ask that you know your pup is good with smaller dogs. :)

When Vicki watches your pet

I live less than a block away from riverside park, and (my favorite) West Harlem Piers park. There is also a great dog run, that is safe and the owners are good, so if your dog is social and likes dog runs, I’d be more than happy to bring him/her to play there. I’ll stay active with your dog! If your dog is less mobile, I will gladly match his pace and keep a smile on his face! When inside, we will play with with an assortment of balls and toys. There is a wicker basket on the floor filled with clean safe toys for the grabbing! Also, I always practice tricks, with trainer treats ready to reward! I'm happy to work on your dog's commands , just describe your method and we'll get some practicing in!
