The Golden Leash is a boutique dog walking & pet care service offering personalized pet care for dogs and their owners. For over 5 years, we have been serving families with pets of the West Village and bordering neighborhoods. We love caring and connecting with animals and creating everlasting relationships. We provide care for your fur baby as if they were our own, and ensure that they receive the highest quality care while you're away.
At The Golden Leash, we do not take 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' faces. 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, our dog walkers look forward to bringing a smile and happiness to the lives of you and your pup!
Give us a call or fill out the form in the “Contact” section below and tell us which service you would like your pup to join.
Set an appointment for you and your pup to meet your walker! This is an opportunity to ask additional questions and go for a test walk.
Once your schedule is confirmed, and keys are received, your service will begin and your pup’s dog walker will provide a status report after each visit.
"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 as our dog walker! 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!"
"My big dog Harley loves Phylecia and so do I. Sensitive, knowledgable and on time!"
"Phylecia 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!"
