Dog Walking FAQ
We do not walk dogs in large packs. We provide individual dog walks as well as small group dog walks. NYC Doggies dog walkers never walk more than 3 dogs at one time. All of the dogs that we have are very friendly and they always get excited to meet their other dog friends. Whenever we walk 2-3 dogs together, we make sure they are compatible, live nearby and get along well.
We recommend small group walks to all of our clients because it satisfies a basic canine necessity: to belong to a group of dogs and socialize with them. We reserve individual walks for our dogs that are old or when special needs arise, like when a dog isn’t well.
Given a day’s notice our dog walkers are always available, no matter the time or day. This includes early morning, late night and holiday walks. On short notice (same day), we do our best to accommodate our dogs’ needs, and one of our NYC dog walkers is usually available.
We love the city’s dog runs! It’s the place where our dogs run free, exercise, play and socialize with lots of other dogs and people. It’s where they get the chance to just be dogs.
Every NYC Doggies dog walker is a highly trained dog professional, able to handle tough situations, always making sure that our dogs are safe.
However, we do have a few dog walking clients who prefer walks on the street, and we always respect their wishes.
All our dog walking clients receive a NYC Doggies notebook where, every time we walk the dog, his NYC Doggies dog walker writes a note detailing the pick-up/drop-off time, the location of the walk and whether anything out of the ordinary happened. Also, by special request, our dog walkers will keep in touch with the client by text message, email or phone.
The majority of our customers give us their keys. Our dog walkers are careful to always keep the keys secure, and they are never tagged with the customer’s address. For clients that live in doorman buildings, we prefer that the key be kept with the doorman and our dog walkers’ names on file, providing access to the key when needed.
The NYC Doggies team includes Ovidiu, Marty, Elene, Bella and Jen.
Ovidiu is our dog trainer, Jen is our dog hiker and Marty, Elene and Bella are our dog walkers. We work together as a tight-knit group to ensure that our dogs and our clients get the best possible service. Learn more about our dog care-givers
Our dogs have a primary NYC Doggies dog walker who knows them best and takes them out for regular walks. However, once in a while we temporarily switch walks so that all our dog walkers get to know our doggies. This ensures that in case one NYC Doggies dog walker is sick or on vacation, our doggies get the same level of care and attention from another familiar NYC Doggies dog walker.
We are bonded and insured through Pet Sitters Associates. Our insurance covers all NYC Doggies dog walkers and offers protection against any damage to your home, property or pets while in our care.
