Boarding & Day Camp
Lucy had her first stay with Hope and I have to say her experience as well as mine was awesome. I would highly reccommend that any person looking to board their pet would be totally satisfied. Clean,Loving,obedient and safe environment for your dog. Lucy is so looking forward to her next visit with Hope.
I was very nervous leaving my little Chihuahua with a stranger as she is like a daughter to me but my hubby persuaded me by telling me she had good reviews and that we could see our dog at any time through the web camera. I reluctantly left her with Hope who started sending me updates and pictures within a few hours. That helped me feel a lot better, not only because I knew my dog was in good hands but also because she kept her promise by telling me she would keep me informed. My dog seemed comfortable very fast and adapted pretty well. I am 100% sure that she was treated with loving care. She played a lot with new friends which allowed me to feel at ease and enjoy my vacation. I’m very happy with the service Hope provided. She is very nice and professional. I’ll definitely use her services again. I highly recommend her to anyone to watch a little companion.
Since I worry about my dog like she was one of my children, I never thought I would find a dog sitter, who would care enough about her to keep me from worrying when I was away. My experience has always been that I would leave my dog with a sitter (never in a kennel) for a few days and no matter what, I would get her back in worse shape than when I left her. She would be, at best, only lethargic and depressed. When I first called Hope and talked to her on the phone, she sounded too good to be true. She explained that she does not put the dogs in cages and that she has a strict routine that she follows every day, so that the dogs will know what to expect. The routine also included “movie time” where all the dogs would go into the living room with her and watch TV together. She sounded like my fantasy of the perfect dog sitter, but one that I thought was just that, a fantasy. She then, actually came over to my house to meet and observe my dog. She wrote down her medical history, took a copy of her shots with the dates etc…, and asked me to fill out a questionnaire about her habits, what she eats, and what she likes. She was extremely professional, but also relaxed and very interested in my dog. You could tell that she loved what she did and put everything into doing it well, down to the last detail. Even the payment process was perfectly organized, and for what was offered, incredibly reasonable. There was also a web cam that she explained to us, where we could watch our dog all day if we wanted to, while we were away. We then took our dog to Hope’s house to visit before we actually left her there. We were even more amazed at how immaculate the house was and how everything was set up to revolve around the dogs. When I left my dog with Hope, for 8 days, this was the longest time I ever left her and I felt totally assured that she would be okay. While we were away, Hope sent us text messages, pictures, and videos of our dog, in addition to the webcam that we could watch at any time. When we got home, and went to pick up our dog, she was playing in the yard and looked healthy and happy. She was actually in better shape than when we left her, because Hope had also, trained her in some ways that we never had. Hope also talked to us about some things she observed about our dog, and made some suggestions about her eating habits and her health. I did not worry at all about my dog while we were away and now feel, for the first time ever, that I can go away for a long vacation and feel totally confident that my dog is being cared for by someone who is totally attentive to her needs. Finding Hope has actually added to the quality of not only my dogs life, but mine, and my whole family’s too.
As a new dog owner, it is very difficult to trust anyone to love and care for your puppy as you would. I knew from the minute i spoke with Hope, she would look after our 4 month old puppy, Jessie, BETTER than we do! Her philosophy about dogs resonates with me. She is firm, loving and truly called to her profession. My week vacation was relaxing knowing that Jessie was cared for, yet not indulged. I was able to see her through the many photos sent to me and posted on Facebook, which my kids loved. Accessing the puppy-cam was an added bonus! Live footage of my pup in action. Amazing. Upon our return, Jessie slipped right back into her home routine without hesitation or anxiety. Thank you, Hope, for being there for us. Just so you know, Jessie, since her stay with you, sits patiently on her pillow for her breakfast and dinner to be served with no barking or jumping! Your magic lives on.
I brought my two dogs to stay with Hope when we went away for a week. There are very few people I trust my dogs with and did a great deal of research before calling Hope. Our experience with her could not have been better and I am so relieved to know that I can leave my pups with her whenever I go away. She has a wonderful setup with a huge backyard and very pup friendly indoor setup. Throughout the time our pups were with her Hope would send us regular pictures and even movies! Also we could check-in anytime via her indoor and outdoor webcams. Hope has wonderful dogs herself so you know your dogs will have great company. It is really perfect that Hope is a trainer so that she knows how to handle dogs and how to make them feel right at home. We could not be more pleased and highly recommend Little Paws of Hope!
I cannot say enough great things about hope and her services. It’s so good, my partner and I can’t believe she’s real! We live in Brooklyn, and she offered pick up AND drop off service since she is in Long Island. This was GREAT for us, since we were stressed out about packing and the logistics of the trip, it was one less thing to be worried about or running around NYC the day of our trip getting our pup settled someplace. Overall, she is knowledgeable, caring, and so so sweet. she took photos of my pup while he stayed and played in her BIG YARD with all of his friends and shared all the photos with us! How sweet is that? She really creates a safe and open environment where you know not only will your dog be safe and cared for, but will have fun and be on a vacation too! Plus there are webcams which you are given special access to, so while you are on your trip you can look and see what your pup is up to, I found it nice since I missed him. you ready for the best part? Her services are the same price as all those boarding and daycare services in the city, and they cage your dog, don’t have a yard, and you certainly will not get the caring and sweet care that you ever would from hope. I can’t wait to go on vacation again and use her services for my pup!!
Thank you Hope and Jack for hosting our little sunshine while we took our vacation to Europe in August Maddie B, my small long hair chihuahua was able to be comfortable at home with you and your sweeties, it made me sleep better at night knowing that she was in good hands, playing with the boys, sunbathing, barking at neighbors dogs etc. I may have missed her enormously but I know she loved her vacation at the doggie hotel. Maddie B cant wait to stay at Little Paws Of Hope again and sneak into that big big bed. From now on the only home away from home will be Little Paws Of Hope Doggie Day Care & Boarding! Thank you so much.
“We usually rely on a friend, who also has a Chihuahua, to watch our 9 year old chi, Toby. This summer, when our friend was not able to watch him, we discovered Hope. Toby is EXTREMELY high strung, yippy, yappy, snippy, snappy, you name it and we knew we could not board him just anywhere. We discovered Little Paws of Hope and could not be happier. Hope understands toby’s quirks and her energy and attitude put him at ease right away. He had a wonderful time with Hope and her five ridiculously cute dogs. I was able to watch him enjoy being part of her pack via web-cam throughout his stay, which not only gave me peace of mind but was really fun. When Toby’s visit came to an end, Hope dropped him back at our house along with photos of his time spent with her (one of them even framed), a new leash and a can of food she discovered he preferred to the flavor we had been giving him. ABOVE AND BEYOND! We feel lucky to have found Little Paws of Hope and will be boarding Toby with them from now on.” It is worth the trip from Brooklyn to Long Island, sometimes Toby is picked up! Nice to know he has his very own vacation spot!
