About Doggie Dates LIC

Karin moved to NYC 6 years ago from the Islands of Hawaii. She soon began her corporate career in NYC within the Store Design and Visual Merchandising industries. Although she enjoyed certain aspects of her job, it wasn’t her passion. She decided to take some time away from corporate to take action towards her long-term goals. Karin saw an abundance of dogs where she lives in Long Island City, and wanted to do something to give back to her community. Karin always has a love for animals ever since she was a little child. That’s when she knew her future path in life was to be with animals! She now works with so many adorable pups on a daily basis, and it doesn’t feel like a job to her at all. Everyday is another day to bond with her furry friends & create more memories! Karin treats your pup(s) as if they were part of her very own family.

Your pup is gonna love us!

Get to Know Karin

My name is Karin (Kah-Rin) and I reside in LIC.  I am friendly, honest, dedicated and outgoing.  I enjoy fitness, outdoor activities and keeping a healthy lifestyle.

I was a previous dog owner (Akita & Alaskan Malamute) for over 15+ years & have the friendliest outlook with Dogs. Growing up, I also owned a bird, bunny and several fish simultaneously. I have experience with all sizes of dogs; ranging from Chihuahuas, Tibetan Spaniels, Pit Bulls, Huskies and Golden Retrievers. As far as I can remember, animals have always been an important part of my life.

REVIEWS

      Karin has taken care of my dog overnight multiple times now and each time she's been great to work with. She's kind, reliable, professional, and very obviously a dog person! Our dog has separation anxiety and Karin was extremely patient with him. She pays close attention to our care instructions and provides amazing updates. I no longer stress about my dog when I'm out of town because I feel Karin takes such great care of him. I'd recommend Karin to anyone!

Our Services

Dog walks

All dogs require daily walks for exercise and mental stimulation.  Your pup will always be my # 1 focus.  I give them the activity they need to stay healthy, social interaction with other pups in the neighborhood while having a great time being out and about!  Each walk is specifically tailored to the needs of the pup.  I offer both mini group (2-3 pups) and solo walks.  Your pups will have plenty of walking space with me, I give them plenty of Freedom. I’ll always keep a steady pace behind them so they can explore and sniff to their hearts content.  If you miss your pups during work? No worries, I send updates & photos to you, something I like to call  PUP-dates!
