New York City Dog Walkers – Dog Walking Services2021-09-17T11:55:30-04:00

Personalized Dog Walking Services for NYC Dogs

We specialize in providing regular, small-group dog walks, with maximum 2~3 friendly dogs at a time, grouped based on their personality, exercise requirements, service length, and location.

We think exercise, socialization, and affectionate care are integral components to a healthy, balanced, happy life. Every day we’ll strive to give your pup her daily dose and to make it the best experience possible.

Our Take on Dog Walking

Man with 2 dogs

Since founded by Ovidiu in 2002, NYC Doggies has evolved and grown stronger with every challenge, including the current pandemic. This is in large part due to the trust and lasting relationships we build with our clients, to whom we are truly grateful.

We are committed to our clients and to providing the best possible care for their dogs. With our dog walking service, you can set it and forget it, knowing your pup’s needs are being met. Or, you can be more involved by communicating with us at any time for questions, concerns, support, and advice.

NYC Doggies dog walker

We are a deliberately small team of dog walkers, allowing us to get to know each and every dog and to personalize their walks so that they and their parents have the best experience possible.

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 who does at least 75% of the walks over the year.

We use our own proprietary software and custom-designed NFC tags to scan in and out, ensuring that you’ll be instantly notified when your doggie is picked up or dropped off from her walk. You will also receive a detailed walk report that will always include:

    • the general area where the walk took place
    • the names of the other 1~2 dogs your pup was walked with
    • if she pooped and/or peed
    • any other relevant information
    • the name and work email address of her walker

We also promptly respond to emails or calls made during our work hours (see FAQ below).

Dogs playing at the dog run

All the dogs that join NYC Doggies must be very friendly with other dogs and people. This ensures that our dogs get along with each other, and get a chance to make friends.

Our dog walkers are active and fit, always ready to play ball in the dog park or power walk with pups along the Hudson River. Young or old, we personalize our walks to meet the exercise needs of every dog.

Our regular dog walking clients have exclusive access to our dog boarding and sitting services.

When boarding, we treat your dog like our own, showering her with attention and affection. We take our boarding dogs on multiple walks per day, feed according to your schedule, give medications, and provide comfy beds for naps.

When dog sitting, we are respectful of your home and leave everything just as it was on our arrival.

What are your hours of operation?2021-08-09T23:11:05-04:00

Our hours of operation are:

  • Weekdays: 9 AM to 6 PM
  • Weekends: 10 AM to 3 PM
  • Holidays: 10 AM to 3 PM

We do our best to accommodate all of our dogs’ needs, and one of our dog walkers is usually available for walks during our work hours.

To ensure our availability during weekends or holidays, the walks must be booked at least a day in advance.

Will the same dog walker care for my dog every time?2020-10-22T15:56:42-04:00

Dogs who are signed up for regular dog walks have a primary dog walker who walks them approximately 75% of the time, throughout the year. 

Every now and then, we temporarily switch dog walkers so that at least a few members of our team get to know each individual dog. This ensures that even if the primary walker is sick, or away on vacation, the dog and client will get the same level of care and attention from another familiar NYC Doggies dog walker.

Dogs on occasional, individual, weekend, holiday or off-hours walks are not guaranteed a primary dog walker. However, our team is not that big. Chances are the walk will still be with a NYC Doggies dog walker that your dog already knows very well. 

Do you walk dogs individually or in packs?2020-10-22T15:55:02-04:00

We mostly walk dogs in small groups of maximum 2~3 dogs at a time, and prioritize exercise and socialization. We group dogs based on their personality, location, length of walk, and whether they must go to the dog run or not. All our dogs are very friendly and they always get excited to meet their other dog friends. 

We only provide individual dog walks to our existing walking customers, when special needs arise, like when their dog isn’t feeling well or is sick and contagious.

We do not walk dogs in large packs (4 dogs or more at a time).

Do you take dogs to the dog park or walk them on the streets?2020-10-22T15:55:58-04:00

That depends on your preference. It will be your choice whether we walk your dog on the streets or to the dog run. 

We love the city’s dog runs! It’s the place where dogs can 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 one of our dog walkers is a highly trained dog professional, able to handle tough situations, and to ensure that our dogs stay safe.

Do your clients give you their keys?2020-10-22T15:59:48-04:00

The majority of our customers give us their keys. In that case, we usually need 2 sets of keys. One set stays with the primary walker, and the second set (the backup) stays in our locked UPS mailbox. The keys are never tagged with the customer’s address.

For clients that live in doorman buildings, we prefer that the keys stay with the doorman.

Are you bonded and insured?2020-10-22T15:59:02-04:00

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.

Can you provide references?2021-08-11T17:55:06-04:00

In our initial meeting we will discuss all the details regarding our dog walking service and also provide you with a list of some of our clients, whom we’ll encourage you to contact.

We have clients that have been with us for almost 20 years, who won’t hesitate to share with you their long-term experience with NYC Doggies.

How do I get started?2020-10-22T15:58:37-04:00
