Here is what our clients are saying about us!  * indicates repeat client:


Our dog absolutely loves Jamie, and we wouldn't trust anyone else with him. He has stayed with Jamie several times, both in the city and at the "country house," and he has an absolute blast each time. Jamie makes sure he gets tons of fun and exercise, is well fed and groomed, and she sends lots of updates every day. I can be sure our dog is safe and sound with Jamie - we just love her!

  • July of 2014 I had to travel for a client emergency.  My friend and his wife would help watch Happy while I was gone but she went into labor 4 days before my trip.  I started frantically searching hoping I would not have to resort to Petsco or petsmart dog hotel.  At the time Happy had just turned 15 and her age was finally catching up.  I had called another boarder but they only took small dogs and referred me to Tina and her sister who he said loved huskies.  A quick call and a email later everything was setup.  Tine and her husband Mike came to pick Happy up in the city with their ramp equipped van to take her up to a larger property where Happy could run/hobble around.  When I came home my old girl looked and acted 5 years younger, clearly someone had taken great care of Happy.  

    I had to put Happy to sleep on 03/16/2015 I gave Tina and Mike a call to thank them for having taken such great care of Happy when so many other boarders flat out refused to take her due to her age.  Today when I came home from work they had dropped off a small framed picture of Happy during her time with them.  I cannot thank them enough for treating Happy as one of their own and giving my old pup the time and attention.

 When a last minute change of plans left us with no one to watch our dogs, we were panicked.  With only a few weeks before vacation I wasn't sure we'd be able to find anyone reliable.  Lucky for us, Tina and Total Mutt Jobs came to the rescue! 

Clearly, they have a love for dogs and I felt comfortable enough to leave our dogs there for the week.  We couldn't have made a better choice.  With daily pictures and updates, I felt like I was always in the loop.  It was obvious that both our pups were right at home and a part of the family. When it came time to pick them up, Stella had to be carried to the car because she refused to leave!!

I cannot recommend Tina and Total Mutt Jobs enough.  Our dogs will never stay anywhere else ever again!

 My husband and I recently went on vacation and had Jamie take care of our 9yr old poodle Mercedes, who we also consider our child.  From the very first contact with Total Mutts everything was easy.  When initially speaking with Jamie she went over what to expect and what she asks for in a client.  She will also pick up and drop off your pet!  That was a huge perk for us as we live in Brooklyn and saved us a trip to the city to drop Mercedes off. 

Jamie is very thorough and makes sure all your dogs shots are up to date as well as having the contact info for your vet. She did a meet and greet with Mercedes before hand which I thought was a great idea because it gave Jamie and I a chance to meet as well as Jamie meeting Mercedes.  She came out to our house to do the meet and greet and the two of them hit it off so I knew Mercedes would be in good hands while we were gone.

Jamie even sends a checklist of items she likes the dogs to bring which I found super helpful.  On the day of Jamie came over and picked up Mercedes and her little suitcase and 10 mins later I get a text from her with a picture of Mercedes in the car having a great time.  My heart just melted.  The whole week we were gone I would get multiple emails with pictures of Mercedes doing fun things or just one to say goodnight.  It was so comforting and not once did I worry about her.  I couldn't have asked for a better caretaker!!!!  WE will definitely be using Total Mutts anytime we go out of the city from now on.

I cannot say enough good things about the care Jamie gave our 4 year old Rhodesian mix.  It was such a relief to know that he was in such good hands while we were out of town for a long weekend.  He has had separation issues in the past, but multiple daily updates (including pictures!) put our minds at ease.  He is very high energy and requires at least an hour of exercise a day.  Jamie went above and beyond with several long walks and runs a day- even trips to the dog run.  Our dog was treated like he was at home, even allowed to sleep on her furniture.  They were very accommodating with their pick up/ drop off times- which is huge given the fact that we don’t have a car in the city.  Any boarding or daycare facilities outside of walking distance are typically out of the question, but Jamie came right to our door.  We will definitely be using Total Mutt Jobs again in the near future and would recommend to anyone looking for a nice caring home for their dog to stay in when they are away.

Total Mutt Jobs was wonderful - Great, caring service and I'm sure my dog had a great time with them. I was nervous leaving him behind so it was very reassuring to have them so accessible w/texts (and pictures!)..and her gracious attitude about my dog!

Leo was well taken care of and we could relax while we were away on vacation. Stress free experience, can't tell
you what peace of mind it is & how much I appreciate knowing that he is in such great hands when we are goneI I will definitely be using you again, and of course recommend you to others! Thank You So Much!

Lucca, our Labradoodle, had only been with us for a month when we had to go away for a week-long business trip. He was just a puppy, and it broke my heart to have to leave him. From Lucca's breeder we heard about Tina, and feeling good but apprehensive, we brought him over to her house.  At first he was very shy, and seemed unhappy to leave us, but with a heavy heart, we left.  That evening Tina sent a video of Lucca settling down.  The next day we got videos of Lucca playing with the other dogs in her care, and for the whole time we were gone, we got to see, via videos and photos, how happy Lucca was staying there.  It made me feel very good, because obviously he was having the time of his life!  Now we are home, and I can't wait to take Lucca back for a visit. He really seems to miss his new family.  So while my feelings were a little miffed that he didn't miss me all that much, I am so happy that he had such a good time, and I know he can't wait for us to go away again so that he can stay with Tina and Mike again!  Thanks so much Tina and Mike, and I know that whatever dog you have in your care will be soooo happy and well taken care of.

Jamie watched our dogs for five days. She was phenomenal. She was very easy to get in touch with and sent us daily updates and photos of the dogs so that we wouldnt miss them. I highly recommend her and plan on using her again.

While visiting my daughter in NY, with our little 5 lb maltese ROXIE, we had a last minute crisis which necessitated our hiring Total Mutt Jobs. Although we did not previously know Jamie, she made us feel like we were family from the first moment she entered our home. Jamie immediately put us at ease and we were instantly relaxed knowing that our Roxie was going to be treated like she was accustomed. Jamie catered to her and even Roxie was anxious every day to greet her when she would arrive. Roxie would gaze at the door eagerly anticipating the time when Jamie would come over. That spoke volumes to us, in fact even after we returned home we know that in the mornings Roxie is still waiting for her friend Jamie to come and see her. Throughout the day Jamie communicated with us by texting us pictures of what she and Roxie were doing during the day. This was so appreciated and welcomed as it was very reassuring to us to know that Roxie was being so loved and taken care of so well. I would not hesitate using Jamie's services or strongly recommending her to others, as we were so lucky to have found someone so trustworthy to keep our precious family member. Believe me, we are very particular and have never left our pet with a stranger, thankfully Jamie from the start was no stranger.

Total Mutt Jobs took great care of my puppy beagle while traveled this spring. I get great photo updates of my pup and very quick update when asked. When my pup gets home she usually hits the hay cause she so tired from being very active while I'm away. They do pick up and delivery which is super useful for the last minute packing and not having to run around with my bags and my dog. They're always on time and are super responsive. I really recommend Total Mutt Jobs to anyone that is worried about their little fury monster being ok while their away.

Total Mutt Jobs! looked out for my cat Harley while I was away.  It is a great relief to know Harley was being cared for and that my mail was picked up!"

Britta L - Stormville, NY


Jamie and Tina came to our rescue when we had no other place to board our dog, Mookie for 5 days. With virtually no notice they welcomed Mookie into their home and gave us updates the entire time he was in their care. They even arranged for pickup and drop off at our apartment so we had one less thing to worry about during our trip.

Maureen Z - Brooklyn, NY


Jamie was great with our four month old puppy Lindy. Lindy needs a lot of attention and, because Jamie only takes one pet at a time, she was able to give this to her. We received several emails a day with pictures of our happy pup and updates on how she was doing. Our dog was in very good spirits when Jamie dropped her off at our apartment and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter.
