We love your dogs as our own, and tailor their care to your exact specifications. Your dog will be pampered in a loving home, treated as a beloved family member, walked four to five times a day, and given lots of attention and time to play. We offer overnight boarding when you go on vacation or out of town, and send you daily text or email updates with photos, which are a great way to see how much fun your dog is having! Our daycare and boarding are very popular services, so please give us as much advance notice as possible. $75.00
Our cat care is the perfect service for felines who deserve the best. We visit your home daily to feed your kitty, change the water, scoop or change the litter, groom your kitty, provide love and attention, engage your cat with toys at play time, and also administer medication, if needed. Also, upon request we will pick up your mail and water your plants. We are meticulous caregivers and will follow your prescribed routine. We also send updates with photos of your kitty during our visits. $35.00
Our daycare services include a fun-filled day of human and canine companionship, socialization, mental stimulation, play time, exercise, walks and potty breaks! Daycare is ideal for little dogs who love other dogs, including younger dogs, who need daily exercise to maintain their fitness and health, as well as older dogs, who may now be inactive, but enjoy some canine and human companionship. Daycare will keep your dog well supervised, active and stimulated. We offer daycare for toy and small breeds under 20lbs. $50.00

I have been taking care of dogs and cats in NYC since 2006. I live in the East 40s near the U.N. in a pet-friendly building with a dog run and park nearby. I was raised with two beagles, Tippy and Sniffer, and three cats, Candy, Morris and Reddie. After moving to New York, I adopted Joe, a senior kitty, who lived with me until he was 21. I also fostered a dachshund, Truman, for Almost Home Rescue. I was a volunteer at an animal shelter, and studied animal communication with Dawn Hayman at Spring Farm Cares, a well-known upstate animal sanctuary. I am also a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters, and have Red Cross Pet First Aid training. Under my care, your pet always gets the personal attention he or she deserves. I also stay in touch with you while you are away through daily email and text updates about your pets. Animals past and present have been my mentors and teachers, and I extend my love and gratitude to them all! - Wendy
Wendy is a the consummate professional. She has a sincere love for dogs and she truly cares about their health and welfare. My dog loved her and he was very picky, he only liked the very best of everything! She listens, understands and customizes her care to your pet's special needs. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!"
- Jean S.
"Thanks, Wendy, for taking such excellent care of our kitties for the two weeks we were away in Japan! The daily photos were great, and very reassuring to us that they were in good spirits. We were especially appreciative that you were able to handle Lucy's medication - we know how much she dislikes taking it, and it's great to find someone who can give it!" - Peter S., Owner of Daisy and Lucy
"Wendy is very quick to respond, keeps a thorough calendar, and keeps very detailed notes and records of what YOU want for your dog. Wendy listens to what you want for your dog, and follows through. And Wendy also sends you daily morning updates with a picture to let you know how your dog is doing. What's better than being away on vacation? Being on vacation and getting a fun email and pic seeing our dog happy and safe every day- we really look forward to those emails each morning! I can't understate how helpful it is as a hectic New Yorker like myself to be able to count on Wendy."
- Charles A., Owner of Dexter
"Wendy is fantastic! She's all you can hope for in a pet sitter. She watched our cat, Adagio, for one week while we were on vacation and her daily texts with photos and updates never failed to put us at ease. She is extremely professional, uber organized, and truly caring. Thank you Wendy!" - Emily C.
