Zelie was terrific. She took wonderful care of our dog Georgie while we were out of the country for a week, sent us regular updates and photos, and was very responsive to our messages throughout. Georgie is a sweet dog who can cause a lot of trouble when alone and bored, and Zelie was great about following all the instructions we left for Georgie’s care. Georgie managed to tear a hole in some couch ...

Zelie is wonderful! She stayed at my apt with my 4 mo mini schnauzer and they had a great time! This was the first time I left Ruby so as you can imagine I was anxious but Zelie

6+ Years of Training & Caring

I'm a student at Fordham University looking to housesit for dogs of all sizes, energy levels, and behaviors. My experience includes training and caring for my shelter pup, Domino, for the past five years, house sitting pets (and children) for friends and family, dog walking all over Manhattan, and volunteering at an animal shelter downtown. I've taken care of puppies, senior dogs, dogs with disabilities, and a variety of cats. I'm extremely good at communicating ...

What Zelie would like to know about your dog

I would like to know the details surrounding the dog's behavior and needs, as well as any restrictions. I don't discriminate against breed- I love all dogs, regardless of size, stereotypes, or age. If I had to pick, my favorite "breed" would be a mutt, with Pitbull and Chihuahua as close seconds.

When Zelie watches your pet

If I'm housesitting near a park, I would definitely take the dog there for walks and to play. I would play with them on leash, always, unless the owner specifically mentions that their dog enjoys dog runs. At home, I will spend my time playing with the dog and teaching them various commands (especially if the owner has any requests). And of course, the dog will receive all my attention and love.
