Meet the Founder

Founder and CEO: Christopher Turi. Christopher was raised in Florida and moved to New York City several years ago. After working in private banking on Wall Street, he decided it was time for a change in late 2010. He had always loved dogs and thought he could offer a superior dog-walking and dog-sitting service on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The focus was to be on quality of care, not the quantity of the dogs. Bark Ave not only stresses exercise and training but also ensures your dog has a great time!
