To ensure the safety of your dogs our walkers have basic obedience training. The Golden Leash’s house trainer is Kate Perry. She’s one of the most effective and sought after dog trainers in NYC! While we also reinforce training you are currently working on with your dog, we recommend visiting www.kateperrydogtraining.com for top-level socialization and obedience dog training classes.
The Golden Leash is a boutique dog walking service offering personalized pet care for dogs and their owners.
At The Golden Leash, we don’t believe in taking a cookie cutter approach to pet care. We understand that similar to people, dogs have very unique personalities and temperaments as they go through the various stages of their lives. We aim to meet those needs by offering customized quality care and service that results in happy pets and owners.
We offer private and buddy walks, and include some fun playtime for our dogs that are still puppies at heart! We assign one pet care specialist per client to help reinforce bonds between pups and their walkers. Our pet care specialists are professional, educated, and pet first aid certified.
We are fully insured and provide status updates and pictures after each walk which is often the highlight of our client’s day when they see a smile on their pups’s face. For your convenience we also provide a client portal system where you have 24-hour access to manage your pet’s services and can complete your invoices.
At the Golden Leash, we look forward to bringing a smile and happiness to lives of you and your pup!

The Golden Leash is currently servicing the Greenwich Village and its borders.
We offer an ongoing dog walking service where we require a three walk minimum per
week with consistent days and pick up times.
Buddy walks are excellent for dog owners who are flexible and open to pairing their pup with a walking mate. These walks are also perfect for dogs who love to socialize with other dogs and want a compatible walking buddy. At The Golden Leash we like to keep our walks manageable and safe so we limit our buddy walks to no more than three dogs at a time. Buddies are partnered based on compatibility and availability.
Our private dog walks allow our walkers to give your pup special one-on-one attention. These walks are excellent for pups with behavioral or health issues that require them to be limited to private walks only. These walks offer adequate time for relief, exercise, and bonding.
Our puppy care visits provide your pup with individualized attention and special care. These visits are ideal for a puppy between 3 and 6 months. They can be tailored to your specific needs including: feedings; changing wee wee pads; indoor/outdoor walks or playtime, and lots of love!
Our sibling walks are for dog owners who have more than one dog. These walks offer you a discounted rate and your pups adequate time for relief, exercise, and bonding. Sibling walking rates are limited to two dogs per household.
Other services that can be provided in lieu of your regular scheduled services include: vet/groomer/daycare pick ups or drop offs, and meetings with dog trainers.

My big dog, Harley loves Phylicia, and so do I. Sensitive, knowledgeable and on time.Edgar Lamance
Phylecia is amazing! Our fur babies are like our children, and they deserve only the best care. That’s why we’re so grateful to have found Phlyecia! She loves them like they’re her own. They are always so excited to see her when she walks in the door. We can leave them in her hands and know they are safe, happy, and well-loved. She gives them the extra attention they crave. Phylecia has expert knowledge about their needs, and she even knows training techniques to keep them on their best behavior. She listens carefully to any special concerns, and always follows all the specific instructions we give her. She keeps us updated on how they’re doing, and sends us cute photos of their outings. It’s such a relief to find someone so warm, reliable, and trustworthy to take care of the ones you love. We adore Phylecia! She’s the best!Ami and Keith Simon
Phylicia is the best dog walker ever! She is beyond trustworthy and so passionate about her job. The best part is that she is very reliable and personable. A lot of times she has our dog out for more than the 30 minute time slot and loves spending time with my Madison. My fiancé and I get a detailed text/email from her everyday all about our dog's walk which is also accompanied by pictures and videos...it definitely makes both of our days! Couldn't ask for a better dog walker if I tried...would trust her with my children!Lindsay and Mike Chaconas
