Avery and Nola’s Brooklyn Dog Life

Here’s a double dose of cuteness from Jenna Giannasio, co-owner of School of Walk, a downtown Brooklyn-based dog walking and pet sitting service. School of Walk prides itself on walking no more than three dogs at a time and providing reinforcement and training on basic commands during walks. Jenna is mom to rescues, Avery and Nola.

Name: Avery

Sex: Female
Neighborhood: Boerum Hill
Personality: Loves people and is especially fond of little kids.  A big snuggler with loads of playful energy. Also a little anxious about other dogs,but loves her adopted sister, Nola!
Hobbies: Napping, eating peanut butter out of her Kong, playing with her sister, licking faces and racing up and down the hall and the stairs.
Vocabulary: Sit, down, look, touch, stay and let’s go for a walk!
Favorite spot for walks: Beautiful green blocks in Boerum Hill.
Favorite Toy: Busy Buddy-what’s better than a toy that gives you treats when you play with it?
Pet Peeve: Cats!
Hidden Talent: Sleeping sprawled out on the bed on her back, taking up all the room!

Name: Nola

Neighborhood: Boerum Hill
Personality: Really excited about everything.  Having been found wandering in Prospect Park, we think she’s just thrilled about having a regular home and routine and her sister Avery to play with.
Hobbies: Snoring, playing with her sister, poking around in the cat box, chewing on bones.
Vocabulary: Sit, touch, wait, out, look…her vocabulary is still developing!
Favorite spot for walks: Wherever Avery goes and is also a big fan of the Hillside dog run

Pet Peeve: Being prevented from eating her sister’s dinner when she’s finished with her own.

    I remember reading about a Cane Corso that was wandering in Prospect Park for a while. The guys at Sean Casey rescue were trying to get the dog, but she was very elusive. I wonder if Nola is the same dog.

    Avery – Reggie would like you to know that he is also very skilled at taking up the entire bed while laying on his back.
