Hi, I'm
Max The Pet Nanny

Here's why so many New Yorkers love us.

Always one dog at a time

We're a small team of walkers, but that doesn't mean you'll see us with 20 dogs at a time. in fact, not even 2 at a time. Your dog has all our attention.

No cancellation fees

We know it happens. just email, text or call us even at the last second.
No questions asked, and we won't charge you or get grumpy with you.

One dog, one walker

Unless one of us is sick, on holiday or just really can't make it that day, your dog will have his or her dedicated walker. No crazy turnover. No "Oh hi, who the hell are you" every week.

Poop report

We'll leave a note after each walk or pet sitting, to tell you how it all went.

Meet Max.
Pet nanny since 2007.

Hi, I’m Max and I’m a dog walker and cat sitter. Over 20 years ago, I became a volunteer for Kitty Kind and Mighty Mutts, two great associations that help rescuing pets here in the city.

When I moved to New York I used a few dog walking and pet sitting companies for my puppy Jake and for my cat Erik, but I soon discovered the reality of the business: group walking, high turnover of inexperienced dog walkers and your pet’s priorities at the bottom of the list.

So I decided I would take care of pets with my own philosophy and rules: only walk one pet at a time, no cancellation fees, and daily updates by email.

Because at the end of the day, it's not just about walking dogs, it's about becoming their mentor, best friend and playmate. It's about creating a bond.
That’s what makes me different.
And pets know.

What our clients say 
(because behind a happy pet there's a happy owner)

Having just moved into the city, I was worried about how my dog Bailey would adjust. She was not very well socialized as a puppy and not used to the sights and sounds of the big apple.All my fears were put at ease once Max started walking Bailey. Max has been great at dealing with her and making sure she gets the exercise and relief she needs. In all, a must for any dog owner in New York!



If you are looking for a friendly and reliable dog walker, Max is your guy. I totally trust him entering my apartment when I am not home to take my dog for a walk. He is very reliable and easy to get a hold of. He also loves animals which is apparent in the way he interacts with my dog Frankie. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a caretaker for their pet.



I have been using Max as my cat sitter for the past two years. He always keeps me informed and assures me that my kitty is ok. I tend to worry because she is 19, but Max always takes such good care of her. I know he brushes her regularly because her fur looked especially nice this time when I returned from my vacation. I have no problem recommending Max to anyone who needs pet care.



Max was amazing with our pooch, Peanut. She's a special girl, who had special needs and Max was wonderful with her from day 1. Our dog didn't just love anyone. She was very picky about her people. But her and Max bonded from the start and she seemed to enjoy her time with him immensely.
