Best dog walkers I've ever used. We've used other walkers living all over the NYC area and our experience with VIP has been far superior to any other service we've experienced. Some of my favorite things I want to mention:The App:Their app for scheduling/checking your walks is awesome. It has a user friendly interface and makes it easy to check on the status of your walks. The walkers (who are all great!) take a pic of your pup and their walking buddies and upload it to the app after each walk. Bottom line, its just easy. Schedule the upcoming week on your phone and forget about it. They take care of the rest. The Walkers:Each walker has been great. They have been nothing but reliable, extremely friendly, and send you updates via the app at the start and end of each walk letting you know what business was taken care of, how far they walked, etc. They'll also bring the pups to the dog park on some walks and let them get some energy out! Whenever our pup sees one of his walkers on the street when I'm walking with him, he always gets so excited to see them, which is a great sign!  Shoutout to John, Stephanie, Miriam, and Angelica! All are awesome. Availability and flexibility:VIP has always been EXTREMELY accommodating and flexible when it comes to our work/walk schedules. Working late? No problem, theyll schedule you an additional walk. Going on vacation? They do boarding as well. The owner, Andrea, is genuinely passionate about her business, and is a pleasure to deal with. I cannot say enough good things about her and the other Walkers. After dealing with many other walking companies around the NYC area, VIP has absolutely set a new bar for us. Not sure how else to end this review other than saying that if you live in the PI/WNY arena and you have a walking service other than VIP, you are absolutely missing out. More...

Besides the actual move, finding a new dog walker for your pup is probably one of the most stressful tasks. After a not so great experience with the first company I chose, I went back to do some more research and found Andrea. It's been fantastic so far and I couldn't be more relieved that Bowser is in such great care. Andrea and John are quick with responding, are super accommodating with Bowser, and I love getting daily photos/updates with the GPS showing where they've walked. We currently do the VIP monthly package ($350) for 30 minutes a day, but their walks have been much longer, usually an hour or so! Bowser definitely seems to be loving the walks with his buddies.

VIP Canine is an amazing family run business and it's been a life saver for me and my pup, Hari. Hari loves his walks with Miriam and his other dog friends. Miriam always sends detailed updates and pictures. When I am sitting at my desk stressed about the next deliverable, these pictures just make my day and give me so much peace of mind knowing Hari is in good hands. The owner, Andrea is super accommodating and so pleasant to work with and is prompt with communication!Ladies - You guys are lifesavers and thank you for everything you do! More...

Andrea was so amazing with my dog Hanzel for a whole year!! I was always having things come up last minute, and she was so flexible and never said she couldn't. Very quick at responding too and lots of pictures! I am missing her care after moving, definitely the best I've had, even compared to Rover and Wag. Pick VIPcanine! More...

My husband and I had great experiences with Andrea for training our two puppies. She is very knowledgeable and all of her advices have been very useful to train our puppies. We wish to continue taking her sessions but we had to move out of state. If we had stayed, we would have continued taking her lessons! More...

Ollie loves VIP!...training with Andrea, walking with Stephanie.  I recently took Ollie to the group training classes and we both loved it. Small group, lots of attention, practical and effective training - and he had so much fun! I also learned a lot about handling him better.  All the VIP team are so good with him! More...

The entire team at VIP Canine has been wonderful! We began working with Andrea a year and a half ago when we first got our puppy. She was available immediately to come meet us and our dog, was extremely thorough in explaining the services, gave us so many great tips, and was so flexible in meeting the needs of our puppy during cold winter months. We continued to use VIP for daily walks and occasional day long hiking trips. A year and a half later, we can attribute our dog's great behavior to the training sessions we did with Andrea, as well as the attentiveness of the walkers. They are caring, thorough, honest, and trustworthy. We would recommend them time and time again! More...

Otis' favorite person besides his family is Daniel, his dog walker since last year. The only time Otis gladly leaves my side is when Daniel comes to take him for his daily walk. Seriously my clingy dog absolutely LOVES and adores his VIP team. I can assure you as a long time customer that VIP Canine provides top of the line, personalized service. This is why I love supporting local small businesses because you really cant beat the customer service. Every interaction I've had with the owner Andrea has been personalized and Otis-focused and I appreciate her and her team so much. We have been doing the monthly VIP walks package which gives us other great discounts on services like training or boarding. All their walks are GPS tracked including information about whether he's peed or pooped and pictures of Otis on his walk with his friends. Actually, as I'm writing this Otis is at Andrea's for boarding as we are away from home this weekend. He always loves his time at Andrea's and I wouldn't feel comfortable with anybody else. Please give them a try, you won't regret it. More...

VIP canine has been the best decision we have ever made when we got our puppy and moved to west New York nj. We were new to the area and to owning a puppy and Andrea made everything so easy for us. Her and her team truly care about your dog and pays specoal attention to each and every one of them especially at the puppy phase. I can trust her with anhtning she is so reliable and reasonable and I leave my pup with her whenever we go away on vacation and our pup is excited as ever. I would recommend her to anyone in the area as she will make your lives so much easier! More...

We love VIP Canine. I used Andrea for private sessions for my new rescue pup back in the fall and just decided that I am going to purchase a new pack of sessions because she helped us so much. She is definitely the dog whisperer. She knows everything about dogs, their needs, wants, fears, and can read your pup immediately. I wish she owned a doggy daycare so we could send our pup to her! We love her! More...

What a fantastic family owned and ran business. They go out of their way to ensure the care and needs of our dog are met every day, even outside their working hours.  Thank you, Andrea and John, for making Luna feel loved in addition to the patient and practical training you have provided to date.

Andrea is a canine lifesaver. When we first got my mini schnauzer puppy, we had no idea where to start house and crate training. My puppy was 9 weeks old and wreaking havoc on our home and ruling the roost. Within 2 weeks of structure and guidance and private training sessions, she was completely house broken, crate trained and responding to basic commands. Andrea also taught my husband and me how to groom our puppy like a professional, which was not easy, and we are still mastering.  I am so grateful for Andrea and her knowledge and help through it all.

I've been using Andrea and her team for a couple years to board and groom my Maltese and Cockpoo. When it was time for me to get a dog walker I went to them. My babies loved their walks. During the warmer months they would take them to a dog park so when they came home they were nice and tired :). I trust them and know my babies are always having a great time. It's great to have a group I can go to with ALL my fur baby needs. I know I can ALWAYS rely on them and best of all my babies are happy when with them!!! More...

Ok this dog walking service is absolutely amazing!  Andrea has taken the time to get to know me and my dog quite well in a very short time.  Yesterday she went above and beyond and at the last minute came out in the snow (we were stuck in traffic for hours) and walked our Smiley.  She not only walks him but reinforces what our private dog trainer is teaching him/us.  She has a very good way with our dog and you can see how naturally and easily she knows her way around dogs.  She treats my dog as though it was her own!  The prices are reasonable and I am so glad to have her and her company right near my condo!

I haven't left a review for VIP Canine since I first move to the area over 5 years ago, so I thought it was time for an update/refresh.  After all this time (and growing competition in the area), I still choose them to take care of my big boy - a big, blind, now senior mastiff - and although they've grown as a business, their service and care has always maintained the highest standards and quality, which sometimes gets lost as companies grow.  Not VIP Canine!  I use VIP Canine for walks and boarding.  I know I can trust Andrea and John (owners) like family members, and their staff are reliable and trust-worthy as well.  They treat each individual pet with care and love, and they are also sensitive to those who are older and/or with special needs.  I have no worries or feelings of discomfort when my boy is in their care whether it be for 1 afternoon walk or 10 days.  Thank you, Andrea, John, and the entire VIP Canine staff.

V.I.P Canine is great with my dog. I have trusted them for almost two years now and they have been nothing but amazing! I recently went away for a 2 week time period and Stephanie from V.I.P took care of my dog in my home, Chazz was so happy, Stephanie sent pictures and checked in with me constantly. It was such a relief to leave Chazz with V.I.P because I know he was in great care! Thank you so much for all that you and your team does Andrea! You guys are great! More...

I absolutely love Andrea and the whole team. We use them for dog-sitting our 10 year old boxer Tyson and he absolutely loves them. We also used to use them for daily dog walking before they left Hoboken and it was wonderful. They send us pics of how he's doing and they are the ONLY people that can get him to socialize (he's gotten a little grumpy in his old age). I can't imagine using anyone else for boarding. More...

Vip Canine takes the best care of my Meeka. She gets great exercise and socialization on her walks. We also used them for training when we first got her and Andrea was great and very patient. She customized the training to what we really needed. We also board meeka when we are away and we trust that she is well taken care of. You can tell that they really care about the pups. More...

Hi Yelpers, I am checking in to say that after 3 years, I am still a client of VIP Canine. My bulldog stayed with VIP this past Christmas, cage-free and worry-free. First time I had to spend a big holiday away from home, but I received text updates and daily pics. Its comforting to know she was in good hands. She also still goes on her daily afternoon walks with her dog pals. Consistent, reliable, and caring More...

VIP Canine is incredible. When I found myself in a sticky situation with my landlord and new rescue pup with severe separation anxiety, Andrea was right there to offer her board and train program. I gladly accepted her offer, and it was the best decision I ever made. In four short weeks, Andrea was able to make amazing strides with my dog, both with obedience training and his separation anxiety. She is truly the embodiment of professional and her 15+ years of experience in the dog training business is clear from the results she delivers. I would recommend VIP Canine to my family, friends, and anyone else looking for a trainer. Andrea rocks! You won't be disappointed . . . More...

My boyfriend and I adopted a wonderful puppy 3 months ago. He was very difficult the first month we had him and the absolute BEST thing we did was hire VIP Canine as a private trainer. Having private one-on-one training sessions has been truly an amazing experience. My puppy was fully potty trained in a month and his difficulty has changed dramatically. They are amazing and I would highly recommend their services! Especially the private training! More...

They did a great job on my 5 dogs hair . They even took my dogs before the time they are to open. My daughter god Are doesn't like having thier hairs cut or bruahed and many places usually cut or nick them , but here they didnt and all were super nice.  Mind you i have a Pomeranian and morkie mix and thier 3 puppies . Their hairs are not easy. Its thick and get tangled easliy.the crew did a great job and andrea was very nice. I am grateful. More...

I have only good things to say about Andrea and her team!  I have been with them for over 4 years.  They have always taken great care of my boxer boy Logan.  He's gotten older and now has to go out more often for potty breaks.  They were able to do two daily walks for him, and now that he's on medications that made the peeing more frequent, he goes to day care with them instead.  Andrea even got a ramp for their vehicle since my boy can't jump easily anymore.  She's always been very flexible with scheduling, which is great for someone like me who doesn't have a fixed weekly work schedule.  I highly recommend her and the team.  I don't know what I would have done without them these last few years!

VIP CANINE is the best company in NJ and NY area! Tito wouldn't listen to anyone. I had taken him to many trainers who recommended horrible painful equipment to put on my tiny baby. I was blessed to find Andrea and her team. Andrea took him for about 3 weeks and got my stubborn , boy to learn sit, down, stay , go to his bed, to walk nicely and much more! They made sure to keep me updated with videos and pictures of how well he was doing. If i didn't see videos i just wouldn't believe it! Andrea took her time to show me everything and how to keep up with the training. Anytime i have any questions she is just a phone call away which brings me peace of mind. More...

I am forever grateful that i found vipcanine! We were ready to give up on Maxx when we met Andrea and her team. We started using vip for private training services. Andrea came to our house and worked her magic. Maxx has improved so much. He couldnt even see a dog without going crazy and now we can walk passed other dogs. We now signed up for day training where her team works with Maxx in socializing him and now he can walk with a pack of dogs! It feels great knowing that my baby is having fun when im at work. They even send me pictures and videos to show how much better he is getting. More...

Can't Thank Andrea and her crew enough!!Andrea took care of our furry babies over the Thanksgiving Holiday, back and forth to our home to take care of our cat Baby Cakes & she welcomed Dino and Lola into her home/daily routine for a few days and we could not be more pleased at her great service and great care she took with our kids!!! They actually seemed bored when they got home as I am sure they were missing hanging out with Andrea and her pack on their own little doggie vacation !! Thanks Andrea for such great care! More...

We have used Andrea, John, and the VIP Canine team since we brought home our little pup. From the first day, Andrea was excellent. She went above and beyond to work with us on leash training, and teaching simple commands.  There is clear communication with everyone on the team via daily notes. They also post pictures to their social media (with owners approval) to show what the dogs are up to during the day. Her dog walks are generally longer than the time we pay for, because she wants all the dogs to socialize and get enough exercise. They are flexible and help us cover late hours if we get stuck at work and won't be home until late.  We also use them for grooming. They will pick up and drop off your dog if they are on their walking service and you would like them groomed. Our pup always looks and smells amazing, and I know she is getting treated with care during her haircut. I would highly recommend VIP Canine to anyone looking for dog walking services! More...

I highly recommend VIP Canine! We originally started using VIP Canine for grooming services, Andrea was the first to give our dog Charlie his now signature mohawk. She is a talented doggie stylist! Eventually we started using their dog walking service as her rates were more competitive than the company we had been using previously. Andrea's walkers show up on time, are very friendly, and take good care of Charlie. He gets walked with a few other dogs in the neighborhood so they are usually out for 30min - 1hr, which is great. We've also boarded Charlie with Andrea a few times and he seems to enjoy himself. Overall the VIP Canine team is professional, trustworthy, and they care about pets - a great local business! More...

Andrea and John and their entire crew are incredible. They take the time to truly understand your dog's needs and treat them accordingly. Giving someone the keys to your home can be scary, but I trust them completely. Regardless of who came to pick up and drop off Mac, they were respectful and professional. Mac couldn't wait to head out the door with anyone from their team. I had Mac stay with Andrea and John for extended periods of time at their home, and felt so comfortable with the set up...he LOVES them! Andrea is communicative, flexible and really understands dogs. I would absolutely recommend this family business to anyone. You aren't going to get better care for your dog. More...

I called before I went in to see if they had time for a walk-in. They had an opening about a half hour from when I called. They got my Sophie in immediately and I was in and out within 45-60 minutes. Grant that my dog is only 6lbs, so larger dogs would probably take longer. The team there was kind, courteous, and very friendly. I'll be taking Sophie back there in the future. More...

VIP Canine is seriously the best dog walking service I could ask for. When I moved to Union City from Brooklyn I decided to get my French bulldog pup and Andrea and her whole team were with me from the beginning. I can't tell you what a stress reliever it has been to know that they come by during the day to care for my baby boy!I got my pup at just 3 months old, and within two weeks he was fully house trained and I attribute a lot of that to Andrea and her team of superhero dog walkers who came by initially twice a day to make sure my little pup could relieve himself. Now he only needs to be walked once a day, but I know that walk is something he has to look forward to everyday while I'm away at work. I work pretty long hours (typically leaving at 8:30AM and not getting home until 7:15) so it's great to know that someone is coming by to make sure my pup gets some exercise and relief. Andrea has also been great about responding right away about my last minute requests for someone to come by at night and feed him on those unexpected work nights where I'm staying late or need to go to an event. She's also walked my boyfriend's dog a few times when his pup has been staying with me for an extended period of time and it's been absolutely the most simple and easy process. Andrea really knows and understands dogs and always has great advice for nutrition and care of my boy. She just goes above and beyond! In the early weeks, my pup came down with a very serious virus, and she was super supportive during that time and very accommodating, making sure he went on solo walks since he couldn't be around other dogs and making sure he stayed hydrated while I was a nervous wreck away at work.I would HIGHLY recommend Andrea and her team at VIP Canine. I simply can't say enough great things about them and am so happy to have Andrea and her team as my little guy's besties during the day while I'm gone. Thanks so much VIP Canine!!!!!!! More...

To say I am overprotective about my pet is an understatement, that said I would not trust anyone other than VIP Canine to walk and care for my fur baby.  They are always prompt, thorough and attentive.  They leave you updates about their walks and you can tell they are true animal lovers. Andrea is always available should you have any questions.  You can rest easy and count on VIP Canine to care for and tend to your pet while you are away. I can't thank them enough for all they did for us!! More...

I wish I could give VIP Canine 6 stars!!We have been getting walks for our pup for over a year and couldn't be happier! Our pup loves VIP because they are consistent, caring and if she doesn't seem like herself (ex slight limp, lethargic, ect) the walkers leave detailed information (currently in a notebook titled "Ms. H's Adventures" and there has been word of the walkers getting an app to check in and out as well) to help us keep her happy and healthy.We love VIP because they are dependable, professional, pleasant and reasonably priced. We have a cat too and VIP's walkers (and owner) go out of their way to show him some love too. VIP goes above and beyond.I was so excited to hear that they are going to be opening up a store in West New York, NJ!!! More...

VIP Canine is not the first dog walking service my husband and I used in the area for our French Bulldog puppy, but we are SO UNBELIEVABLY THANKFUL that we found them! We were using a company 2x/day that declined significantly in the service they initially provided and it ended up becoming stressful every morning to leave our new puppy with them. We also crate train him, so the fact that he was still having accidents in his crate after 6 months using them was alarming - we knew it was time to move on. We interviewed a lot of local companies and none of them measured up to what VIP Canine had to offer, by a long shot.We had a wonderful initial meeting with Andrea who explained their services, what our options were, what we could expect from them, she gave us some tips and we got to see her interact with our puppy. We could tell from the first time we talked to her how passionate she is about her business and animals and on top of that, how genuinely knowledgable she is. Andrea and her team began walking our puppy when he was about 9 months old. We keep a notebook where we note what he did while he was with us and they leave us time stamped notes detailing the events of their walk (ie: if he walked with any of his friends, got exercise, if they notice something might be off, etc.). It's become a comfort to know that we've found a company that we can trust every single morning we leave for work to take care of our little man. On top of that, when we're in a jam and we need an additional walk, Andrea is always willing to figure out a way to make it work. She's very responsive and I know that when our guy is in their care, he is getting the same treatment as if he were with us.  I value communication in a working relationship, especially one as precious as this, and Andrea and her team excel in that area. An added bonus is that because of his dependable routine that they stick to every day, he hasn't had an accident in his crate (or even in our house) since we started working with them!!Bottom line is, Andrea and her VIP Canine team come second to none. They'll care for your pet as if it was their own and you can tell that they all enjoy what they do. We consider ourselves lucky to have found them when we did and we are looking forward to a long lasting relationship with them! If you're looking for someone to care for your pet, you don't have to look anywhere else - set up your meeting, you won't regret it!!! More...

It's been about 10 months since Daisy started her daily walks with VIP Canine and the quality of the service is just as good as it was in the beginning.  That kind of consistency isn't easy to achieve and it's a testament to how well run the company is.  Daisy loves her walkers - - someone in my building stopped me to tell me how happy Daisy was leaving with them one day.  Also, being with a pack has made her more confident and she acts more like a dog than she used to (a good thing).

I LOVE VIP! Since I'm the owner of a dog with some behavioral issues, I was worried about finding a walker who could handle my pup's needs. Andrea listened to all my concerns and explained their group walk program, where they partner dogs that work well with each other, temperament-wise, and employ walkers who are mindful of each dog's limits. I love the detailed notes that I get each day, and the flexibility of scheduling (we're able to text schedule changes as needed). With VIP I'm confident that my dog is getting the exercise and attention she needs. More...

LOVE VIP Canine! Andrea is great! She is a trainer and knows how to connect with your canine bestie. My husband and I had the pleasure of her service for our sweet (but slightly fear aggressive) Lily. Lily was a rescue and was attacked by a smaller dog as a puppy. She has hung on to the fear for 4 years... until she was supported and taught confidence by Andrea. Andrea took Lily under her wing and exposed her little by little to other pups (first larger breeds then smaller breeds). Lily is so much more confident now that she's worked with Andrea and the crew. She is so much more relaxed on walks. We had to move out of the area this fall for a job relo. :(  I wish I could have taken Andrea with us! Lily loved her from the very first encounter. It's not like that with other dog walkers. BELIEVE ME... we've been looking in our new neighborhood. We purchased the 2x daily walk which was perfect for our schedule. Great value because you get someone who will care for your pup while you're away.  Because she is also a trainer, have no fear, if there's ever any situation with another aggressive dog, you won't have to worry about Andrea's ability to make the right decision for your pup. She know's how to communicate with dogs. She also gave me little tips that has helped me handle my bestie better to ensure a safe environment always (like if we're stuck in a tight elevator with an aggressive furry). Big fan here. Thank you, Andrea and Paul. More...

VIP Canine is seriously the best dog walking service I could ask for. When I moved to Union City from Brooklyn I decided to get my French bulldog pup and Andrea and her whole team were with me from the beginning. I can't tell you what a stress reliever it has been to know that they come by during the day to care for my baby boy!I got my pup at just 3 months old, and within two weeks he was fully house trained and I attribute a lot of that to Andrea and her team of superhero dog walkers who came by initially twice a day to make sure my little pup could relieve himself. Now he only needs to be walked once a day, but I know that walk is something he has to look forward to everyday while I'm away at work. I work pretty long hours (typically leaving at 8:30AM and not getting home until 7:15) so it's great to know that someone is coming by to make sure my pup gets some exercise and relief. Andrea has also been great about responding right away about my last minute requests for someone to come by at night and feed him on those unexpected work nights where I'm staying late or need to go to an event. She's also walked my boyfriend's dog a few times when his pup has been staying with me for an extended period of time and it's been absolutely the most simple and easy process. Andrea really knows and understands dogs and always has great advice for nutrition and care of my boy. She just goes above and beyond! In the early weeks, my pup came down with a very serious virus, and she was super supportive during that time and very accommodating, making sure he went on solo walks since he couldn't be around other dogs and making sure he stayed hydrated while I was a nervous wreck away at work.I would HIGHLY recommend Andrea and her team at VIP Canine. I simply can't say enough great things about them and am so happy to have Andrea and her team as my little guy's besties during the day while I'm gone. Thanks so much VIP Canine!!!!!!! More...

Andrea and her team are great! We were on our third dog walker when we met Andrea and her team. From the moment they started taking Rory out we noticed a difference. They really care about the dogs and its shows through the photos on FB, the notes and how tired Rory is when he comes back from his walks!! That is the true sign! I would highly recommend VIP canine to people!! More...

VIP Canine is the best pet care company I could imagine, I have been using them for almost 2 years and highly recommend them. Our dog is always given personalized care and attention. He is biked to help him work off his herding energy and helpful advice is only ever a text away. I don't review often but Andrea and her company have been a godsend. More...

Andrea was recommended after I visited all the local pet boarding facilities, admittedly uncomfortable to leave my baby Matilda locked up in a cage for two weeks, with several brief walks for elimination. Then just as I became desparate, a woman told me about Andrea, talking about the training, personal attention and my puppy being part of the family . I called right away and we agreed to meet day before my trip. Andrea came to the house, cool, young woman, practical and down to earth. I decided on the spot to have her pick up tiny Matilda, who returned to me at the end of my seminar a changed dog. While Andrea sent a picture which showed a prancingly smiiling white Pom, she told me about my 11 months old having found true love with Spartacus, Andrea and John's huge dog, a baby himself. Matilda was toilet trained, happy calm and ecstatic to see me, but even at home she and the two love birds were happily playing together. Ebony and Ivory, tiny and huge, they didn't care - harmony! and Matilda was fluffier than ever, happier and more proud of herself, all due to the magic touch of Andrea and team. I recommend Vip canine wholeheartedly - thank you my wonderful Andrea for teaching me many things in how to deal with my overactive pup, giving her love, activity and new found calm. Now she's not just exquisitely beautiful, she's an ever smiling dog who's a joy to have around. Going out w her gets the whole street smiling and even her ferocious watch dog yap is tempered, and I'm happy as can be. I'll continue using VIP Canine, even while in town to benefit from their knowledge and loving input. More...

Andrea took great care of my 6 month old kitten. She not only fed him and cleaned his litter but also played with him! The best part, she kept me posted and updayed through texts and by sending me photos of my cat! I could not have enjoyed my trip had it not been for her! More...

Andrea and her team are fantastic. My dog Peach has been going on daily walks for awhile now and really loves it. The team is very knowledgeable about dogs and very trustworthy. I have no qualms about giving them access to my apartment while I'm at work. They keep a log of daily activities that you can review and give her a treat before leaving her. I highly recommend this service! More...

My Daisy dog and I couldn't be happier with VIP Canine.  Andrea took the time to get to know Daisy before paring her with walking companions...both 2-legged and 4-legged.  On the occasional day when I'm home, Daisy's always excited to see her walker, so I know she's having a good time.  When I'm at work, it gives me peace of mind to know that she'll have some fun with other dogs and get some exercise.  They leave a note at the end of the day about Daisy's outing and Andrea is responsive to any questions.  I feel lucky to have found VIP Canine.

We've been on the service from the very start. My dog just loves the team. They groom, walk and board him. I know he's well cared for based on his excitement when they arrive to get him. Really that says it all. The best part is he's so tired from his adventures out that he's nice and calm when i get home. They go the extra mile too...clean up his naughty moments (trash diving and box tearing up) and have even taken him to the vet for me. Only the best for my fur-baby More...

My puppy dog is my baby...and I don't trust him with everyone. But Andrea and her team - oh, its like a weight lifted. Sammy has had sleepovers, daily lunch walks and Andrea even clipped his nails once - they were just a little too long for me. I love the team and how much they care for Sammy, how they know him and his temperament (he's a spoiled poodle).  I trust Andrea explicitly. She always makes sure there's fresh water and one of Sammy's treats when the walk is over. I know they both cuddle too - but I don't mind that at all. Andrea is constantly reachable - even when I'm at work I'll get a little text message with Sammy and a puppy friend walking during the afternoon. Andrea and her team have made a chore one of the most looked forward to text all day long. Love them! More...

Dog Sitting:We used VIP Canine to watch our puppy Charlie for a 12-day stay, and we were very happy with how well he was treated. Andrea was in the middle of moving house and still took our business despite the inconvenience it must have caused. While we were away, Andrea emailed us to make sure we knew Charlie was doing well. The free pick-up and drop-off service makes things so much easier at our end.Dog Walking:Impressed by the service we received, we decided to hire VIP Canine for dog-walking. We don't have them on a regular schedule, instead we just make contact on the odd occasion when we need Charlie walked. We could not be happier with the professionalism of VIP's operation, and with the genuine care shown for our dog. More...

VIP canine has been referred to me by a neighbor in my building. They have been caring for my dog for close to two years now and have been a very pleasant experience. They have been professional and very accommodating with my schedule. For the last two years, I've used VIP canine for dog walks, boarding and dog day trips. Highly recommended. More...

We have used VIP multiple times while vacationing. The owners, Andrea and her husband, took such great care of our pups. They came to our apartment three times a day to walk and feed our puppies for a reasonable price, when compared to the service we used when we lived in Manhattan.  After each trip, when we arrived home our dogs were happy and healthy and our home just as we left it. Thanks VIP! More...

Andrea is the best dog sitter/groomer you will ever have. Not only did she take care of my goldendoodle but treated him with love and care. Everytime I needed her she took time to attend to my dogs needs. Her vip canine club is called vip because she can actually pick up your dog while your at work and she sends you pictures or a text just to give you updates on how your dog is doing. Her grooming charges are also very reasonable and she will work with your schedule. Her flexibility and understanding of dogs & animals is just one of her greatest assets. I mean I could go on and on but in my opinion is she is the best in this business and I wouldn't have any other person but Andrea to take care of my beautiful golden doodle. Don't go to other dog sitters Andrea is awesome.  You should try her services and give it a chance.James More...

VIP Canine is the best at what they do. I'm so happy that my little Nala has found a great group of people to take care of her. Andrea and her team really knows how to make a little canine happy. The walks, doggy play groups, grooming, is great and I couldn't ask for a better service.  I've always been super neurotic about who takes care of Nala and who enters my home, but Andrea has made it very comfortable for me.  On top of that Nala is doing much better at socialization and walking!
