As the old saying goes, a dog is man’s best friend. What it doesn’t mention though is the high level of attention and care that best friend needs! In a perfect world, New Yorkers would be able to walk their dogs, bathe/groom them, and watch their every move. However, most pet owners tend to be very busy, and end up requesting help from a third party. Thankfully, many dog care businesses do an amazing job of pampering your dog! If you’re a Manhattan or Upper West Side resident, take a look at leading NYC dog care services that ensure your dog is living luxuriously.

Dog Walking

Every dog owner wants their pet to get the best and most walks possible, and the following dog walking services definitely keep that in mind.

NYC Pooch sets out to find out everything about you and your dog’s routine from the moment you reach out to them. They’ll conduct fun exercises, implement a healthy lifestyle, and reinforce good habits. How? They listen, because that’s what good dog walkers do. As a result, they’ll know your dog’s personality, peculiarities, and preferred places like the back of their hand. They even send daily Pup Reports™ and pictures from the walk so you never miss out on your doggy’s life.

Another convenient premier dog walking service is Luke Dogwalker NYC, available solely for Upper West Side residents. The company aims to develop a close relationship with you and your pup: Each of their 11 walkers cares for the same 8-12 pups every day, and walks 2 dogs at a time. Luke Dogwalker aims to help a new dog charity every month through their Giving Bark initiative: The organization donates $50 and gives an extra $1 for each client who also gives money (of any amount). If that’s not enticing enough, their NYC K9 Events webpage lists any dog-themed or dog-friendly events in NYC.

Let’s not forget about King Pup, whose fully trained and experienced dog walkers work around the clock to provide the most dependable, secure, and loving service in NYC. For over 10 years, the company has been running with the highest standards of care and safety. Like NYC Pooch, King Pup doesn’t walk dogs in packs. If you’re a frequent traveler or work long hours, utilize the at-home pet sitting or puppy sitting services.

Full-Service Dog Care

Most owners seek the whole package, and the below places offer that without jeopardizing the quality of their service.

The Spot Experience is the first choice to consider. The staff is an all-star team of technicians and animal behaviorists recruited from the veterinary community, who undergo 80 hours of rigorous training before they are certified. The handlers promote positive behavior, socialization, and exercise while eliminating undesirable tendencies. You don’t have to worry about any barking or aggression – they interview every dog prior to admission. Their facilities even have high resolution webcams for 24/7 viewing of your pet! Other services include:

  • cage-free overnight stays (also includes webcam viewing)
  • dog walking by highly trained professionals (with GPS tracking!)
  • a variety of grooms
  • all kinds of training
  • in-home or at-spa sessions
  • puppy packages using positive reinforcement

The second best full-service dog care facility is no doubt Biscuits & Bath. Each of their locations has an on-site vet from their partners at NY Veterinary Practice. Doggy having a bad day? No worries, they’ll detect any sign of discomfort and treat them as needed. You can purchase Biscuits & Bath offers gift certificates for any dog!
