Steve and his whole crew are nothing short of fantastic. Steve came into our lives a few years ago and has been an absolute godsend. My wife and I wondered if we would be able to afford a dog in NYC, especially since we absolutely needed a dog walker in the middle of the day. Steve's prices are beyond reasonable and the service he provides is exceptional. We always get emails discussing each and every walk, which is something I look forward to every day. Steve is also SO great about helping out with any last minute requests. He even set up a last minute walk for me while he was in the UK on vacation!

I recommend NYC Pet Nannies to everyone that I know!
My boyfriend and I have had our corgi for nearly four years -- and for most of that time, we have searched for a reliable, professional dog walker who loves our dog (almost) as much as we do.

Thankfully, that search came to an end in September, when on the recommendation of my sister (who has two Frenchies), we signed up with NYC Pet Nannies.

Here's what makes this company such a standout, especially when compared to the half dozen or so others we tried:

1) The bar code system. Walkers "check in" via scanner when they arrive and when they leave, so you not only have confirmation that your dog has, indeed, been walked, but the length of the visit. (You can also view on a map where, exactly, your dog went on his walk.)

2) Daily walk reports. We get an email update after every single walk letting us know -- in detail -- how our dog fared, both physically and emotionally, as well as whether there were any dog encounters, if they played fetch, if there was a change of walker, etc.

3) Thoughtful communication. The owner, Steve, is incredibly proactive. For example, he sends out email reminders about upcoming holidays for which owners may want to cancel walks, so you do not wake up on Presidents' Day and think, "Oh, no -- forgot to cancel the dog walker!"

4) Flexibility. We have cancelled appointments as late as four hours before the start time, due to extreme circumstances, and Steve is always understanding and accommodating.

5) Easy billing. You do not need to leave cash, or pay a week in advance, or any of the other inconvenient payment methods other companies employ. Instead, you give a credit card, and every Sunday your payment is accurately processed and a receipt is emailed.

These, of course, are technical details. What makes me most thrilled about NYC Pet Nannies is that my dog has thrived under their care, and I recommend the company without reservation.
NYC Pet Nannies is an AMAZING service. I have been using the Pet Nannies service for over a year and they have never let me down in fact they consistently go above and beyond! My little ball of fur is near and dear to my heart and I hardly trust my own father to watch her but NYC pet nannies put me at ease. I have recommended them to over 5 of my dog loving/owning friends and family!
The service, care and ready communication WITH Pet Nannies is fantastic, especially as I am always on the go, causing frequent schedule changes, sometimes, last minute. But Steve and his team are always very gracious and accommodating.
Above all else, my walker, Rick is the coolest cat for my dog, ShuShu, who LOVES him as Rick LOVES her! My doorman was able to let me know just how well they get along together.
It's now a little over 5 months with Pet Nannies and it feels like family. I've even referred a neighbor to Steve, after she saw Rick with ShuShu a couple of times. Steve himself is a very loving person and it rubs off on his staff who always give helpful notes.
Even though I would love to keep then all to myself I recommend them at every opportunity
