Dog Walking

What We Do During, Before & After The Walk

PLEASE NOTE: Currently, we are presently only able to schedule walks in the Upper West side and the Lincoln Square areas.

During the Walk

Our goal is to make every dog in our care feel as though they are a cool New Yawker strutting their stuff up and down the Upper West Side and loving New York as much as you do. Our dog walkers have their favorite spots in Riverside and Central Park either made in the shade in the heat of the Summer or romping  in the sun in the cold of the Winter.


Your dog will never be left unattended or tied up outside. We are extremely careful when encountering other dogs, children or anything that may make your dog uncomfortable (bikes, roller bladers, skateboarders, etc.). We also make sure to keep all dogs away from hazardous objects on the ground such as discarded scraps of food and bones, trash, anything that may contain rat poison or antifreeze (also a deadly poison), etc.

Very Hot And/Or Inclement Weather

During extreme weather (freezing temperatures, snow storms, pouring rain, extreme heat/humidity), we'll keep your dog outside only as long as it is comfortable for them. However, we do whatever we can to make it easier for your dog to relieve themselves before returning home.

During freezing temperatures, snow and rain, we request that items necessary for these weather conditions (coat, towel, paw’s wax for protection from salt, baby wipes for wiping paws, etc.) be left in a designated place where they are easily found. We request that you include all of this information in your personal portal. If your dog appears to be cold and uncomfortable during the above weather condition, we will promptly notify you.

During hot/humid days, we always carry water for the dogs to drink and to cool them off by wetting their heads and paws. We also find shady areas and scaffolding for the walks and will take a rest if your dog is panting and appears uncomfortable from the heat and humidity.

Possible Illness

If your dog shows signs of being ill (vomiting, excessive diarrhea, lethargic, etc.), we will immediately contact and inform you of this. (We request that we be advised in advance if you see that your dog appears a little under the weather prior to a walk in order for us to plan the walk accordingly and be prepared.)

Leash Safety Note: We ask that you supply a non- retractible leash. If you don’t already have or use one, a common 5 to 6 foot everyday cloth or leather leash is optimum for the best level of control and safety.

In our past experience, we’ve found that walking dogs with retractable leashes can be cumbersome and extremely unsafe.

It is our policy to discuss the below items with the you prior for instructions

Temperature in your home

If you're not at home during the times that we walk your dog, we'll always let you know if the temperature in your home is too hot or cold. We can adjust it as per your instructions according to the time of year (too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter, etc.).


We can leave a light on after the walk if the you're getting home after dark. Especially on shorter Fall or Winter days when it begins to get darker earlier. Please let us know in your portal which light or lamp you prefer to be turned/left on.

Fresh Water

Before we leave, we'll always make sure your dog has plenty of fresh water in their water bowl. If you crate your dog, we'll try to get them to drink water during the walk and before putting them back in the crate.
