I’m Alyson Spina and I’m originally from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. I studied opera at the University of Toronto before moving to New York three years ago to pursue more performing opportunities. I have a background in lifeguarding, nannying, corporate administration, hospitality, and teaching (swimming and singing!).  I have belted some high notes with the Queens Symphony Orchestra, the Metro Chamber Orchestra of Brooklyn, and joined Josh Groban at the US Open last year as well as the rest of his fall tour in New York. By night I sing opera (and the occasional show tune) and by day I walk adorable pooches!

I have a ton of experience working in private pup-care for friends, neighbors, and many others. My favorite doggie experience was caring for four half-wild dogs in Sicily on a farm I worked at for a couple months earlier this year.

Dogs are my favorite animal in the whole world and I will do everything I can do to make sure they are safe, comfortable, and happy when I am with them. I do believe they are our best friends and that relationships with them are immensely special.  I love being a part of the RuffCity fam and rest assured that your pup will have a blast on our RuffCity adventures together!
