How did you get started in this business?

I lived in Tribeca in the 1980s when very few people did and saw a need for a dog walking service as other people moved into the "new" (at the time) neighborhood with their dogs and cats.


What types of customers have you worked with?

We've taken care of the pets of Actors Robert DeNiro, Edie Falco, Ashley Green, Harvey Keitel, 
Musician Dave Matthews, Producer/Director JJ Abrams,  Director James Mangold, 
Fashion Designers Nicole Miller and Patrick Robinson, Vogue Accessories Editor Virginia Smith, Francois NARS (of NARS Cosmetics), and Playwright Craig Lucas.  
We were THE FIRST & are THE BEST service downtown, in business 26+ years now (since 1991).


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have been petsitting at the home of a Tribeca client for almost 2 weeks for her 3 dogs and parrot. She knows her home will be clean and well cared for, along with her animals, when she arrives home without a worry while she has been away. I spoil the dogs with walks so often all they do is sleep in between!


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Hire the best--that's us. Many other services that have a rotating crew of low paid workers won't give you the kind of specialized attention we give your pets. We do background checks, hire only people with some college education, non-smokers who will love your pet(s) as much as you do! And the owners are out there themselves working just as much as other walkers!


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Are you bonded and insured? For how much? We are insured for $2 million dollars.  Are walkers background checked? Of course! Will it be the same walker ever day? Yes, unless they are on vacation or jury duty and you can meet your substitute. When will you show up? (We guarantee we will set foot in your door at your requested 1-hour timespan to start the walk and it's usually the same exact time daily!). How long of a walk do you want (we provide whatever you want from simple relief walks to an hour or more as many times/day as you want) and what days do you need walks (we work every day of the year)? How many dogs will be walked with my dog? We walk a maximum of 3 at a time! Never more. How can I pay you and how often? We accept Venmo, All major Credit Card, Cash or Check and payment is due every Friday. Do you dry off dogs on rainy days, feed them if I need and change their water? Of course! We dry off dogs on rainy days and feed if you want at no extra charge. We always change your dog's water. If something is out of the ordinary with my dog, will I be notified? Of course! If an emergency we will take to the vet, if just something we think you should be aware of we will call or text you. Will you tell me what my dog does on walk(s)? Yes! We will text you or leave you a note with #1/#2.
