“I have had several dog walkers and none have been as reliable as King Pup”Aime Primm, NYC

James has done a fantastic job with King Pup, he’s very communicative and so fond of dogs which is totally reassuring. Our walker, Martin, has been with us for several years now and he’s so wonderful and patient with our dog. Alexandra B, New York
Working with James and his team has been an absolute joy! He and his dog walkers are extremely reliable and my dog, Bull Murray, loves them. I highly recommend James and his team to anyone looking for a dog walker in Manhattan.Amanda S, New York
My dog Enzo absolutely loved Kimberly as his walker – and for two years, she really provided us with great service. The owner, James, too. Only wish we could have taken them with us when we moved! Dara M, New York
