Some reviews from my customers

Gisi has been taking care of my dog, Sampson, for the past two years (since I first got him as a puppy). He's not an easy guy to take care of, either - he's a high energy Vizsla - but she is incredibly caring with him. If we pass her on the street he goes crazy when he sees his "Nanny".
She was also one of the only dog walkers in the Astoria area who was willing to work with my varied work schedule (I work shift work in an ER).

Not only is she a great dog walker/nanny, but she also takes care of my cat, Shortie, whenever I go away. This involves feeding, changing litter, and even treats and playtime.
Shortie loves her just as much as Sampson does.


Gisi is a wonderful sitter for my two cats. She’s reliable which is so important when entrusting your babies into someone’s care. But, she is also incredibly loving and kind, and my cats absolutely adore her.
I am so grateful to know someone that I can fully trust with my cats while I am away.

Before leaving town we were always worried about our 3 cats, one needs medication. Worry no more! So glad to have found Gisi. The cats were treated to a new game of 'find the treat' which we now play too. She did everything for us while we were gone. Plus daily photo messaging.
We love you Gisi! And so do our cats!

If you're looking for a superb dog walker and animal friend/caretaker, look no further!! Gisi is a wonderful choice in pet companions!! She has been helping out our furry family for over 6 years now and we adore her and so do our pets. Gisi has taken care of our dog walking, and intermittent boarding, needs (2 pups- a Chihuahua and a high energy Puggle) and also has done home check ins with our cat when we're away for a weekend or longer.
We trust her 100% because she's reliable, communicative, thorough and, above all, loving.

We've had Gisi watch, feed, clean up and take of our 2 cats for several years. She is trustworthy and fantastic!
She has even fed and taken care of our corn snake. (my friends won't do that)
She is incredible and has not only done a great job but has checked in with us, sent pictures and kept our concerns in the distance. We love Gisi!!

Gisi is loving and responsible pet sitter. She takes great care of my needy cat while I am away--he requires daily medication and subcutaneous fluids--and she communicates very well with me. She's the best, and I know I can feel at ease with her there.


Gisi is a warm and generous pet sitter, who bonded instantly with our cats. Even one of ours that never used to come out for other sitters, came for her the first time she watched him. Gisi spends time giving our cats love and exercising them, and even waters our plants and gets the mail.

I'd highly recommend Gisi to anyone needing a cat or dog sitter. She's honest, reliable, and most importantly, a true animal lover!

Grey and Little

Gisi has been walking our dog for several years now and she has made a big contribution to her well-being. When we moved Gisi has gone beyond the call of duty to make this transition as smooth as possible for our anxious dog.

Gisi has a natural way with dogs and is very knowledgeable and observant. She has a highly professional manner and has been reliable in all ways, arriving punctually at the scheduled time and providing behavioral updates when needed.We know that our four-legged family member is in good hands under her care.

We recommend Gisi wholeheartedly!

Huey and Gisi

I feel so lucky to have found Gisi! She takes such amazing care of my very demanding dachshund! She gives him wonderful exercise and attention, and I trust her impeccably! She is especially wonderful at adjusting to an ever changing schedule, which helps me immeasurably! Huey is very lucky to be in such wonderful care and have such a great friend! Thanks Gisi!


I started using Gisi last summer for our chocolate lab, Otis and ended up using her to check in on my cat too! Not only is Gisi kind and friendly, but she is trustworthy and goes above and beyond. I NEVER worried leaving Otis or Grace in Gisi's care and I would recomend her highly! I am moving out of Astoria at the end of this month and one of the things I will miss most is Gisi! Thanks for taking wonderful care of our animals! We will miss you!


Quite simply, Gisi is the best dog walker that a dog and their person could ever hope for. We are the "parents" of two adopted dogs - Lucky, our grandpa Pomeranian with special needs and Sport, our 2 year old American Eskimo who is full of energy.

Finding Gisi has truly been a blessing. Not only does she thoughtfully tailor walks to the abilities and personalities of our boys, but she also goes above and beyond what would be expected. For instance, I came home early one evening to find Gisi diligently drying off the (very fluffy) dogs after a rainy walk. Another evening, my husband saw her patiently waiting in the kitchen while the boys ate their dinner, making that each got his rightful share.

Unerringly responsible, Gisi is a true professional and we trust her implicitly with our dogs. It gives us tremendous peace of mind to know that she is by their sides when we cannot be.
