Grant G.

Grant loves animals and animals tend to love him. Growing up with dogs fostered his first love of them, but he got his start in professional dog-walking working with the fantastic folks at The Dog Walking Network in Park Slope, Brooklyn. 

He is certified in Pet First Aid and CPR from the American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI).

Dog-training has become a minor personal focus of Grant’s, and he’s proud that so many of Grant’s Animals’ clients have been with us since their youth. We’ve seen them grow and flourish!

When he’s not walking, pet-sitting, and managing, he’s playing and composing music.

Gabriel S.

Hailing from Sebastopol, California, and now living in Brooklyn, Gabe joined the Grant's Animals team in 2017. With his hard-working and sunny personality, Gabe befriends every dog he meets. He is very detailed in his end-of-walk notes, and his punctuality has made us wonder if he's hiding Hermione Granger's Time Turner somewhere on his person.

Gabe is especially fond of large dogs, but also admits a weakness for Jack Russell Terriers.

When Gabe's not working, you can find him playing Dungeons and Dragons, or running to rehearsal for his latest play.

Matt W.

Originally from Boston, Matt now lives in Astoria. His cheerful, extroverted disposition is infectious, and he's a master at making connections with even the pickiest pups. Since joining the Grant's Animals team, he's helped us extend our service to more pups in the Greenpoint area.

While Matt admits to a special love for big dogs and the unique joy they bring to the world, he's a fan of all canine kind. This isn't surprising to us, since Matt has the same joyful, curious spirit that pups embody.

Before or after his walks, you can find Matt working as a successful voice actor for film, TV, and video games.

Sabrina resides in Brooklyn and grew up in Long Island. After spending 7 years in the air as a flight attendant, she is happy to have her feet on the ground so she can be a good human to her recently adopted dog, Lu.

She is eagerly studying to be a Veterinary Technician, and takes a calm and cool demeanor into every animal encounter.

In her free time she practices circus silks and produces a Cabaret in Brooklyn with her friend.
