NYC Doggies was founded in 2002 by Ovidiu, but grew into the company we love today with the help of Jennifer and our wonderful team of people. With a comprehensive range of services, and well-researched, science-based articles on training, nutrition, and activities, we set out to be a different kind of company, always sensitive to our clients’ demands and our dogs’ individual needs and well-being.

Ovidiu has over 20 years of experience professionally working with dogs. He started training dogs for Schutzhund competitions, dog shows and private clients in 1997. He moved to New York in 2002 and founded NYC Doggies.

Jennifer, a native Vermonter, is a former lawyer turned writer. In addition to co-managing the day-to-day operations of our company, Jen created our dog hiking service (first in NYC) and our Urban Dog Wellness blog.

NYC Doggies’ dog walkers and hikers are the heart and soul of our business. Through a competitive hiring process, careful selection, and comprehensive training we have built a dedicated team of unrivaled experience and professionalism.
