Chris – Uptown

My name is Chris and I’m a lifelong resident of this wonderful city we all call home. I have over 3 years of experience working with dogs in a professional setting and I’ve also been the proud doggo dad to 5 dogs throughout my life.

I’ve studied dog nutrition as well as animal behavior to better assist dog owners with their pets in any problems they are having, and I put this training to good use during my time as manager at Unleashed by Petco on the Upper East Side. I’m also certified by the state of New York in animal care and handling so you can always rest assured that your dog will be in excellent hands with me.

I love energetic dogs and have no issues walking a couple of miles if they’re up for it. I personally go jogging with my dog, so if your dog needs to burn some calories, feel free to let me know! My second dog is older, so no worries if your dog doesn’t have the spunk anymore as I’m fully able to match any dog’s pace. I believe the main thing to have with dogs is patience and being able to understand their personality!

I’m so excited to be a part of the RuffCity team and I can’t wait to meet your furry kiddo!
