Furry Poppins
Pet Nanny Service

Founder, Deborah Price has been a pet maven for most of her life. She has often been observed stopping to talk to random dogs and their parents on the street. Whenever visiting a feline household, Deborah has been known to have a piece of string in her “carpet bag” to magically engage even the most aloof of kitties in a game of chase.

Deborah alias Furry Poppins has also been a pet parent over the past 30 years to a menagerie of adorable felines and loving canines. She began pet sitting and dog walking by offering time to her friends and found that it suited her perfectly as a profession. She marvels in the every day lessons of her charges and delights in sharing a soothing word or cheerful adventure with a large variety of creatures and their parents. Deborah is fortunate to be helped by husband, Joe, another capable and avid animal lover.

When the West Wind blows, Furry Poppins flies away with her umbrella. She spends the rest of her busy time writing scripts, essays, directing plays, performing, making art and props.


“I used to work close to home and was able to walk my two toy spaniels, Gabrielle and Chico on my lunch hour. Now, that I am working further uptown, I rely on Deborah at Furry Poppins to do our rounds in the West Village. When I get home in the evenings, Gabrielle and Chico seem happy and relaxed. This gives me a little time to unwind before we head out for our evening walk. I couldn’t recommend a kinder and more responsible dog walker. I particularly like Deborah’s manner and obvious love of animals. She made me feel relaxed immediately and I was able to let go of my separation anxiety and know that my dogs would be calm, too.”

“If I have to travel I know that my cat will be in good hands with Deborah and I recommend her to anyone looking to keep some routine in their pet's life while they're away. She brings a reliable and caring personality to ensure your pet will have the care, attention, and playtime that it needs while being in a familiar environment.”

“I’m sold! Deborah from Furry Poppins has renewed my faith in dog walkers. My husband and I have been through two other companies and found one had a seriously confusing fee structure and the other seemed like a corporation -- which is not our style! I’m relieved to have found Deborah. Our dog Lola loves her, we trust her and appreciate her personal touches and warmth.”

“I would definitely recommend Furry Poppins as a reliable and outstanding Pet Sitting service with something extra to offer. Deborah shared several resources with us on our first meeting. We just adopted a cat and her enthusiasm for communicating with us and our cats was impressive!”
