Sid and Tapka's Dogwalking & Getaway Services
I was born in South America, raised in Boston, MA, and educated in Brooklyn, NY. I've been a caregiver of dogs for over 12 years. My business started in the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill area Brooklyn, NY in 2008. Home visits to dogs (cats also; clean/change litter box and feedings), taking them out for 1/2 hr to 1 hour walks, individual and pack walks were offered. After about 3 years, I added doggy daycare in my home, a brownstone garden apt, 7am-7pm. The garden was manicured and dogs were welcome on all furniture, inside and outside.
*I have been an owner of 5 dogs for the past 12 years. I have laid to rest my 2 eldest, 2 years ago and the other last month. The fifth was a foster that lived with me until she was able to go back home to her original owners (both parties much better for it). Now it's 2 dogs and 2 cats, and my life partner.
After 10 lovley years of caring for dogs in Brooklyn, I met my life partner and we decided to move to upstate NY. We were lucky to find this farmhouse that sits in the Towns of Westford and Worcester. Our zip is for Worcester, but if your driving here we're in the town of Westford. The farm is over 100 years old and comes with 3 acres of land. We are doing all the renovations ourselves. We have fenced in just about half an acre of our backyard, ending at our pond (which does carry bass and other fish). Guests have the run of the backyard and the pond (for those water-loving breeds) with supervision. We also have a tethered run on the other side of the fenced backyard that runs up 1/4 acre on the property.
