Ratings

Have been going to Bobby for a while and he is our favorite. He sends lots of pictures of the dogs during their stay, which is something that my wife is particularly fond of. He is extremely nice, courteous and flexible. We enjoy working with him and will be doing so in the future.

Bobby was very professional and made this first trip away from my puppy very easy. Bobby is always very responsive to a phone call or text message. And he kept me up to date with all of my little puppy's activities with text messages and pictures throughout my trip. I definitely recommend Bobby to board or house sit your pet.

We couldn't be happier with Bobby. He was reliable and communicative, and sent regular text updates with photos (which is always reassuring when you're out of town). Will definitely use his services again.

Bobby was great! My normal dog sitter was on vacation and I had to find someone on short notice. Bobby got back to my inquiry in less than an hour! While I was gone he sent me pictures of my dog and kept me up to date on how she was doing. I always miss my dog and getting the pictures was nice. I would definitely let my dog stay with Bobby again!

Bobby watched my American bulldog pup for 2 nights and took great care of him! Vinny is a very energetic dog, but he came home happy and exhausted. Bobby kept me updated with pictures throughout the weekend which I appreciated!

Thank you, Bobby! This was our first time leaving our puppy Charlotte with anyone, and I was a nervous wreck about it. But Bobby sent me a constant stream of photos of Charlotte playing at the dog park, cuddling with other four-legged companions that Bobby was caring for, and relaxing at his place. I was quickly put at ease -- which was good, as I needed to focus on getting married!
My dog Stella does not normally like when I go out of town, but she warmed up to Bobby almost immediately. She seemed at ease in his home and he did a great job sending pictures and updates while I was away.
Thank god for Bobby. With out him I would have missed my nephews graduation. He is truly a blessing. Dude cant wait to visit again. Now I just have to find some were to go...just kidding. I would recomend him to everyone He is the best....

While bobby took good care of our dog, it was a holiday weekend and he may have over committed in terms of the number of dogs he was caring for.
Bobby clearly loves dogs and is great with them. He sent us many pictures while we were travelling. Bobby also picked up and dropped off our dog, which was very convenient.

Testimonials

Meghan H. October 4
Bob has taken care of Gus for us several times, first in his own home, then in ours, and I would happily recommend his services to any friend with a dog. He is awesome at sending regular "pupdates" and Gus always comes home to us happy and tired (the best way for a dog to be!)
Emily S. October 21
Bob is amazing! He is so devoted to his work and is so trustworthy. He always goes above and beyond for our pets, they love it when we leave!!
Brianna B. January 1
Bob is truly fantastic! A life saver for busy couples or families that want their dogs to be able to stay home while they travel. Bob watched our 11 month old goldendoodle for two weeks while my husband and I traveled through South America. We came back to a very happy pup and felt at ease the entire time during our trip. He sent us regular updates and even performed a few emergency household things while we were traveling. We would highly recommend him to other pet owners! We plan to hire him again for a few weekends in 2013. (Collapse)

I had to leave town suddenly last week and needed somebody to take care my 2 pugs. A friend referred me to Bob. He called me back within 10 minutes and took care of my dogs all week. He really helped me and i will use him again next weekend.
We're used Bobby's loving dog services now for about 20 walks and we've just booked him to do three days of overnights while we are away. He's dependable and does indeed love dogs. More important, they love him!
Tolu R. March 5
Bobby has been a dream come true. Rocky and I appreciate what Bobby has done for us. He is very professional and you get a great sense on how much he love dogs. Bobby always sends me pics of their walk when he takes Rocky out. When I get home, Rocky is still exhausted from the walk. Which is pretty impressive considering he is a 1yr old Boxer!
Mary S. March 9
Bobby is a wonderful caretaker for anyone's dog. I could not ask for a more reliable, proactive person to walk my dog. He is always dependable and flexible and has been available several times at the last minute to take my dog for an extra walk if needed. He doesn't hesitate to send photos and provide a status of my dogs mood. I highly recommend Bobby to anyone looking for a dog walker.
Wow! Can I just say "Thank you, Bobby!" I have a special needs dog (18 years old) and I have left my dog with relatives and I swear I saw him go downhill just over a weekend stay. Poor baby (Puppy is his name - Not appropriate at this age; I know.) is blind and deaf, but he is still a stout little dog. He loves his walks and he loves "chest bumping" with dogs his size. Bobby was so careful with him. He sent me better pictures than I can take and told me temperaments of dogs he might come in contact with. I actually left my Puppy with one other highly rated pet sitter and my poor doggy's head ended up in a Husky's mouth. Not cool. Thank you, Bobby. I see my doggy when I pick him up. I know if he got love and attention. Thank you, Bobby! (Collapse)
