I left my (very adored and slightly spoiled) lab Dolly with Bobby for a long weekend, and could not be happier with how things went. Not only did he work with us on pick up and drop off times to help with our schedule, I received several pictures each day detailing all the fun Dolly was having while we were away. I almost worried she wouldn't want to come home again after a weekend of multiple trips to the dog park, running around congressional cemetery and sleeping on the couch. Bobby is clearly a true dog lover, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. (Collapse)

My dog Charley had a great stay with Bobby. I was definitely a nervous mom as my 11-year-old schnauzer has a suspicious nature and can be slow to warm up to strangers. But he took to Bobby right away. I could tell by the pics that Bobby sent on the second day of the stay that Charley was having a good ol' time with his new buddies. We'll be seeing Bobby again!

Bob is seriously awesome... flexible, kind, reasonable and dogs just love him! He's the only person we've ever trusted to take care of our puppy and we couldn't be more grateful to have found him!
Bobby is an amazing dog watcher! We have two high energy Australian Shepherds who are not always the easiest to deal with. They seem to have had a great time (and seem tired, and it's hard to tire them out!). Bobby is SUPER responsive and sent us a lot of pictures and updates about how they were doing. He also took the time to meet us beforehand so we could check the space out. We are using him again in just a couple of months....this is a way better option than boarding them at a kennel or company where they have to be indoors all the time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! (Collapse)
Highly recommend Bobby. He was great with our dog, who is older and needs a little more TLC. We'll use him again for sure.
Bobby was fantastic! He was able to accommodate Dock at a last minute request the same day we needed to drop him off. He was very flexible with time and sent lots of photos while we were away to keep us updated on what Dock was up to. It was almost like our dog was on doggy vacay while we were away on our trip with lots of friends to play with, a pool in the back yard, and frequent trips to the dog park. Thanks again Bobby!

Our dog did not want to leave! She enjoyed the company of Bobby's dog, Katie, and seemed very comfortable at Bobby's place. I say this because Bobby sent photos throughout the day, which I really appreciated. They always brought a smile to my face and allowed me to see Baea relaxing at the house and playing at the dog park. Bobby seem very safety conscious and knowledgeable about dogs. He was also very flexible about drop-off and pick-up times, including last-minute changes. In fact, due to last-minute changes in my schedule, he was able to accommodate us for an extra day. I also appreciated his willingness to do a "meet-and-greet" at which he made me feel comfortable about asking questions and providing information about our dog. Definitely plan to use Bobby again! (Collapse)
Bobby was very responsive and flexible with our last minute request, and as always he kept us updated with plenty of photos of our doggies relaxing and having fun. Thank you!

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.

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!

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)
