about us

Taryn & Bessie, UWS

Our company began in 2010, across the river – in Brooklyn.  We combined the accountability of a company with the personal touch of working with an independent dog walker – a formula that has brought us a lot of success (ProspectBArk is the highest-rated dog walking service in Brooklyn on yelp.com).

In the summer of 2013, we expanded our services to Manhattan as RiversideBArk, where our personalized attention to detail, and NO PACK WALKING Policy are welcome with open arms (and wagging tails).!

RiversideBArk is a proud member of the Association of Pet Sitting Excellence, which maintains a high standard of accountability for its member companies. We are fully bonded, insured and certified by the American Red Cross in Pet First Aid, and our Professional Pet Caretakers are long-term employees, not independent contractors. You can read the difference this makes, here.

Our clients love us! And we love them right back!  Each month, one of our furry canine or feline clients will be selected as the RiversideBArk Pet of the month! This lucky pup or kitty will receive one free walk / visit, and ad what they’re saying about us on the Testimonials Page, and also on yelp! If you would like to speak with some clients who live near you, let us know.

Do you have a rescued dog or cat? RiversideBArk offers free dog walking service (length of free service on availability) or a week of free cat sitting to families who adopt a pet from a NYC shelter or rescue organization. Inquire for more information!

If you have any additional questions about our company, or have suggestions, please call  us or send an email to chunsoon [at] riversidebark.com. We love getting feedback!

Also, savvy pet owners are our friends! You should be, too!
