My name is Chris Perez and I’m a lifelong resident of this wonderful city we all call home. I have over 3 years experience working with dogs in a professional setting and I’ve also been the proud doggo dad to 5 dogs throughout my life.

I’ve studied dog nutrition as well as animal behavior to better assist dog owners with their pets in any problems they are having, and I put this training to good use during my time as manager at Unleashed by Petco on the Upper East Side. I’m also certified by the state of New York in animal care and handling so you can always rest assured that your dog will be in excellent hands with me.

I love energetic dogs and have no issues walking a couple miles if they’re up for it! I personally go jogging with my dog so if your dog needs to burn some calories feel free to let me know. My second dog is older so no worries if your dog doesn’t have the spunk anymore as I’m fully able to match any dog’s pace. The main thing to have with dogs is patience and being able to understand their personality!

I’m so excited to be a part of the RuffCity team and I can’t wait to meet your furry kiddo!
