A Better NYC Dog Walking Service

At NYC Doggies we all work as dog walkers because we love dogs, period. Our approach to dog walking is simple – exercise and socialization are integral components to a healthy, balanced, happy life, and it is our job to give your pup her daily dose, making it the best experience possible.

Our team members are carefully selected for their experience and reliability, and they are rigorously trained by Ovidiu. Our dogs have one primary NYC Doggies dog walker, but also get to know the rest of the team so that when a pup’s primary dog walker is sick or on vacation, a familiar face will be there to take him for a walk. Our NYC dog walkers are dedicated, highly qualified dog care providers, trained to handle any situation and always ensure a safe experience for your dog.

What sets us apart from other dog walkers in New York City?

All of our pups form special bonds with their dog walkers, and we encourage this important relationship by keeping a regular schedule and providing a primary dog walker.

NYC Doggies Team

Tight-Knit Team

We are a deliberately small team of dog walkers, allowing us to get to know each and every dog and to stay in constant communication with each other and our clients. Nothing slips through the cracks.

We do not walk dogs in large packs. We provide small group dog walks and occasionally, individual dog walks. NYC Doggies dog walkers never walk more than 3 dogs at one time. All of the dogs that we walk 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.

We do our best to accommodate all of our dogs’ needs, and one of our NYC dog walkers is usually available for walks during our work hours. Outside of our work hours availability cannot be guaranteed. Our work hours are 8AM-6PM, Monday through Friday, and 10AM-3PM on weekends.
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.
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 consists of 14 people. Ovidiu is our dog trainer and he and his wife Jen, own and manage NYC Doggies. Matt is our assistant manager. Amy, Krista and Edward are our hikers but they also provide walks. Kevin, Maksim, Ariana, Gloria, Jorge, Fernando, Mauro and Andrew are our full time dog walkers. Together, we all work as a tight-knit group to ensure that our dogs and our clients get the best possible service.

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.
In our initial meeting we will discuss all details regarding our dog walking service and we will gladly provide and encourage you to contact our dog walking clients. We have a very long list of references for all NYC Doggies dog walkers!

The first step is to fill out the form found on the “Contact Us” page.  We will get back to you shortly and answer all your questions and set up a time to meet. 
After our meet and greet, we’ll be ready to start when you are.
