Hope your dog enjoys cuddling!Upper West Side, NEW YORK, NY

Full time Dog Lover, specializing in Senior & Special Needs care as I'm available 24/7.

The way I see it, animals can do no wrong, and every behavior has a reason.

Learning animal behavior has been rewarding in that it has invited me to examine my own actions, and build in patience within myself. Simply, compassion is endless when it comes to animals needs.

About this sitter:

Who I am:

A bigtime dog and all around animal lover who returned home to NYC after working with animals & completing grad school in San Francisco. My family and I have cared for dogs and small animals since I was a kid, and I promise to give your pup round-the-clock love and attention.

My experience with caring for dogs has been the most rewarding and it is a pleasure to have the opportunity to continue to dogsit, especially since the life of a writer can be lonesome and I can't get enough trips through Central Park.

*Happy to share write ups from past and current clients.*

What I Offer:

-3-4 walks a day = usually at least 4-6hrs exploring parks and relaxing in the sun or shade in one or all of them.

Note: Duration ALWAYS depending on your dog's preference or need. For example, some senior pups I care for prefer frequent, but shorter walks - they're the boss when it comes to that :))

-24/7 Round-the-clock attention to your pup's needs. I don't have a 9 to 5 schedule so I am there for your dog at all times during the stay

-Half a block distance from Central Park, as well as an enclosed dog park.

-Happy to give your pup a bath if they get dirty from the dog park or general playtime outside at no additional charge.

-Special needs are welcome - have much experience with my own pets in the past administering medication, and am two blocks from Animal General hospital.

-Available at all times by phone and email to answer any questions during the stay, and arrange the drop off time.

-Happy to provide natural treats from the local boutique pet shops.

-Regular cuddles are available upon request 24/7!

Why I love dog sitting

I was born a dog and all around animal lover! My family had a llapsa Apso named Chazzy who was my best friend growing up. Since then, I've been a mama and co-parent to (2) St.Bernards, many rescue bunnies, guinea pigs, lizards, and (1) cat. I just returned home to New York after 8yrs in San Francisco volunteering & fostering with Muttville Senior Dog Rescue & working with Rover. Dogs are the best companions, offer unconditional love and loyalty in exchange for our care. In my company, your dog will become a member of my family, and spoiled with love 24/7.

Meet my pets

(2) House trained Bunny Rabbits named Moo and Luna. They have a playpen in my living room where they stay at night, and are uncaged and litter trained during the day. They are very friendly and mind their own when there's company. They can also be penned during stays if a pup is shy. They've met many dogs who've stayed with me, and keep to themselves, always cuddling each other. *Meet and Greets are best to ensure my home is the best fit*

About my yard

In exchange for a backyard, I live just half a block up from Central Park as well as an enclosed dog park, and the Reservoir walking/running/biking trails. Also have an enclosed balcony (added additional chicken wiring for maximum safety) with wonderful views to sit together at night and enjoy the breeze.

My experience administering medication

Yes. I've had special needs animals pets and cared for them as well, in both situations being able to stay up all night and administer medication when needed.

we’ll fall in love with each otherMurray Hill, New York, NY

Hi, I’m Giulia, I’m Italian and last year I moved to NY. I love the city but I really miss my dogs in Italy (two labradors, mom and son).

I deeply love dogs (and all animals in general, to be sincere) and that’s why I joined Rover: my motto is “your dog is my dog”.

If you call me, I’ll take your loved ones for short or long walks, depending on their specific needs. We’ll always walk along safe and not too busy streets, so that they can enjoy the time spent together, never being afraid of noises or crowds.

If you ask me to come to your place, I’ll be respectful with your house as it is mine, and I will entertain and take care of your dog.

If you need me to host your dog in my house, here they’ll feel like home: we’ll play together, we’ll take some naps on cozy blankets, have many many cuddles and sometimes delicious treats (not too many!!!).

We’ve grown up with dogs and cats in our households our whole lives and have always thought of them as siblings rather than just pets.

We both have a lot of experience pet sitting at other people's homes, housing dogs at our home, and walking dogs of all sizes. Rob & I work together in order to best accommodate yours and your pets needs alike. Not only do we have a lot of experience, but we love what we do!

DOG WALKING

Rob & I both have experience walking all types of breeds and sizes. We walk dogs individually and one at a time in order to give them the personalized time they deserve on their walks.

We are very trustworthy and responsible when it comes to dealing with your home and pet. We make sure that you feel comfortable with us taking care of your home while we are there and especially your furry loved one. We can accommodate to your needs, whatever they may be.

Didi's place is so much fun!Brooklyn, NY

We're a young couple from Brooklyn who has great love for all kinds of animals but especially dogs! Our senior dog Riley has passed away in November 2016. He was such a sweet fellow.

After his passing we decided to travel the States on our motorcycle with his ashes to honor his memory. Now we're back to care for our friends, better more than ever!

I had worked in doggy daycares and volunteered in no kill shelters in New York for several years. That is how we've met our Riley.

I obtain New York State Health Department's certificate on handling and hygiene of small animals. I also recently started taking courses in canine massage therapy. I just love caring for our furry friends. I think that is my purpose in life and I feel so lucky to be able to do this full time. And I do my best to learn new skills every day.

I have many clients who have become good friends over the years. You could get an idea of how we care for our friends from my reviews.

Per my voluntary work in shelters for years, I had experience with many different kinds of dogs. I am comfortable in handling different size and energy dogs. These animals, they give you everything and all they ask for is to be loved and cherished which is the most joyful thing on Earth, to love a dog :)

I have as much energy as the dogs.Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY

I can’t walk through a neighborhood without scouting out the best trees and grass spots. I really enjoy walking dogs and watching them interact with their surroundings. I am a great dog wrangler. I have 2 dogs, a medium and a large size. I never get tired of walking them, even though strangers usually stop and ask “Who’s walking who?!” They have a lot of energy. I feel as if every walk is an adventure. I’ve learned to read dog body language very well. I know when to cross the street to steer clear of other dogs and when a wag is friendly or pure curiosity. It’s always better to be safe than sorry when walking. Dogs get nervous or irritable and defensive just like humans, and a good walk is one that’s safe with plenty of good sniffs.

Organic treats and new toysHigh Bridge, Bronx, NY

From a very early age, I've always loved dogs. When I was ten, my dad got me my first dog, a super sweet poodle. She was entirely my responsibility, and she taught me about love, respect and proper pet care. I fed, walked , bathed, and cleaned up after her. My love of animals continued, in high school, I interned at the Lenox Hill Veterinary Clinic. While I worked there, I cleaned cages, and comforted sick animals, as well as administered medicines. I recently graduated from college: and I am a full time pet sitter, I love what it I do!

You can rest assured knowing that your house and dog/s is in loving hands. I will treat your pet like family, so you can be confident that they're getting the best care while you're away. Please reach out to me with any questions and I can't wait to hear from you.
