Finding a dog walker in New York is all about the perfect fit. It's about finding someone who gets along with your dog, understands your lifestyle and who can trust both with your dog and in your home. If you're hunting for a dog walker in New York, here are some of our favorites!

Gotham Canine — Gotham’s founder Khrys Solano started her dog walking business when she was just 19 years old and has steadily grown the business over the last few years through word-of-mouth and referrals. She’s a native New Yorker who knows the city inside out and regularly traverses the city with her own dog, Butter. We’ve met her, we love her and she’s total light.

Throw me a Bone — With locations all over the city, Throw me a Bone is easily accessible no matter where in Manhattan you live. We also love them because they offer a variety of services from walking to grooming to overnight stays, which means you can use these guys for just about everything. We love a one-stop shop.

MixyPaws — Located on the Upper West Side, Upper East Side and Greenwich Village, MixyPaws covers a wide geography in Manhattan. We love them for their single walks and group walks.

NY Tails — The amount of care and effort NY Tails puts into matching you up with their services is really a cut above. You start by filling out an online questionnaire about your dog and your needs. And then before you ever sign up for their services, you’ll get to do a meet and greet to figure out if it’s a fit. We love the hands on approach.

Swifto — If security, safety and tracking are your thing then Swifto could be the way to go. All of their walks are tracked on a proprietary GPS app. The walk, the keys and more are covered by their insurance policy, and they only offer private walking (unless of course you have more than one dog of your own!)

Tribeca Dog Walking — For a hyper-tailored and personal feel, owner of Tribeca Dog Walking, Rob, runs and conducts all of the walks himself. Rob works 7 days a week, in all weather conditions with no more than 3 dogs at a time. He covers Tribeca and the North Battery Park area, so if you’re in the neighborhood, he’s an awesome person to start with.
