We’ll Get You Through Those First Few Weeks.
Introducing a new puppy into your home is one of the greatest pleasures in life. It’s so great to see them explore their new surroundings and form a bond with their new parents. But puppies are also a lot of work! They need so much care and attention in those first few weeks, but you still have to work, right? That’s where King Pup comes in. Our NYC puppy sitters can help get you through the period where your puppy is too young for outside walks but needs someone to stop by to feed them, clean up any accidents and work off some energy. Most of all, your puppy just needs some big old friendly hugs to reassure them that they haven’t been forgotten about. This is what we do!
Book and pay for your visits online through our client portal. You’ll be able to view your schedule in your calendar and ensure that we have your puppy’s visits booked accurately.
Our NYC puppy sitters use GPS technology to check-in to your visit so you know for sure that they’ve been. You’ll also receive a daily photo of your happy pup!
King Pup only hires dedicated animals lovers who have prior experience with animals. You can be sure that your puppy will be treated with kindness, love and affection every day.

What does a puppy visit entail?
Depending on the length of puppy visit you have booked, at the bare minimum we will make sure that your puppy is fed, watered and clean. Sometimes puppies have accidents either inside or outside of the crate and cleaning it up is all part of the service! Any remaining time on the visit is spent playing with your puppy and giving them all the affection they want. Whether it’s a game of tug with their favorite toy, chasing a squeaky ball around the room or just a good old fashioned belly rub, we’ll make sure they get as much attention as possible during the visit!
What if my puppy is sick or has made a mess?
If your puppy seems unwell in any way then we will contact you immediately. In most cases, an upset stomach or diarrhea is nothing to worry about (unless it’s an ongoing condition), but it’s always a good idea to keep communication channels open if a puppy’s condition needs monitoring. You don’t have to worry about cleaning, we will always clean any mess that your puppy has made – we just ask that you leave out any cleaning materials that we would potentially need (paper towels, spray, puppy wipes etc).
Should I crate my puppy?
Opinions differ on whether or not puppies should be crated but for the most part, we think that crating small puppies is a good idea. Crate training isn’t just beneficial in teaching your puppy to control their toilet functions – it also gives them a sense of security when they’re alone in the apartment. Small puppies can sometimes find large spaces overwhelming when they’re alone and so many people adjust the space in their crate so that there’s just enough room for them to stretch out and turn around. It’s also a good idea to put some kind of sheet or blanket over the crate to make them feel cozy and secure. They also appreciate a couple of their favorite chew toys in there! Many people also like to leave a radio or the TV on to distract their puppy from noises in the hallway – a common source of stress for puppies left alone.
