New York City Dog Walkers – Dog Walking Services For The Busy New York Dog Owner
New York City Dog Walkers – Dog Walking Services For The Busy New York Dog Owner Ovidiu
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?
Consistent Dog Walker
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.
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.
Active Dog Walkers
Our dog walkers are active and fit, always ready to play ball in the dog park or run with pups along the Hudson River. Young or old, we personalize walks to meet the exercise needs of every dog.
Our dog walkers are professionally trained to practice the obedience commands your dog has learned in her training lessons with Ovidiu. Practice makes perfect!
Boarding & Sitting
Our dog walking clients have exclusive access to our boarding and dog sitting services. We provide boarding in one of our loving homes so that going on vacation will never be stressful for you or your pup.
The first few months are the most important time for socializing your new puppy, and we have special walking services for pups of all ages, including those who haven’t yet completed their vaccinations.
You will receive instant emails or texts when your dog is picked up and dropped off for her walks! Our dog walkers use their phones to scan a custom-designed NFC tag attached to your dog’s collar.
Photos & Videos
You can’t be there in person, but we want you to share in the fun by viewing photos of your furry one enjoying his walk. We share via an active Facebook page and personalized client pages on our website.
Managing your dog’s care has never been easier! Dog walking clients use our online tools to view invoices, make payments, schedule appointments and stay informed.

“Regular Dog Walk” : a walk that belongs to an indefinitely recurring schedule, a minimum of 4 days per week, at about the same time each day, Monday through Friday, during our work hours (8AM to 6PM).
“Occasional Dog Walk”: a non “regular dog walk”, provided sometime during our work hours (8AM to 6PM), Monday through Friday.
“Off-hours Dog Walk”: a walk provided outside of our work hours.

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.
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 includes Ovidiu, Jen, Maria, Brian, Colin, Kevin, Maksim, Krista, Matt, Andrew, Valentina and Colin. We work together 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.
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!
Dogs pant in order to reduce their body temperature. They exhale large volumes of air and, if locked up in an unventilated area on a hot day, dogs might get heatstroke. Some other risks associated with hot weather are dehydration and sunburn.
