OUR SHTICK

You're a tourist.  Deal with it.  Even if you live here.  Sometimes especially if you live here. What's that ache in your stomach?  Is it a fanny pack waiting to erupt from your stomach?  Or a rash that turns into a "I ❤ New York" shirt? Calm down. It's just your body telling you want to explore New York. We can help with that.

We'll show it you as much of it as your eyes take. From silver capped Art Deco skyscrapers to hidden Egyptian obelisks to rows of Brooklyn brownstones we'll overload your senses till they yell uncle.

How long were there sheep in Central Park? How many people are buried in Washington Square? Why is there an empty building in the middle of Times Square? Hang out with us and we'll tell all the cool stuff about New York you never knew you wanted to know.

I have been using The Walking Rovers since they trained my husky, Cyrus, as a pup. Cyrus is now five years old. The faces sometimes change, but each dog walker and sitter has been consistently compassionate and diligent.
