About Bobby M.:

I am a dog lover

About this sitter:
I have over 11 years of experience walking and house sitting dogs. I am a member of Washington Humane Society; the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPP); a member of Congressional Cemetery, where your pooch can run free in a safe, enclosed environment; and I am Red Cross certified in dog and cat first-aid and CPR. I have a rescue dog Katie who won the 2011 Hill Rag pet contest. My home has a gate and then two double doors for the entrance and an enclosed back yard. I am located two blocks from Atlas Vet and 5 blocks from Kingsman Dog park. I work out of my home so your dog will get plenty of attention and luvin'. I have local references, upon request.

I had to find a sitter for my pup at the last second, as my usual sitter wasn't available. Bobby was very responsive and really friendly and professional. He clearly loves dogs and took fantastic care of my pup. He has a great space, and it was my dog was very comfortable there. I could not ask for anything more!

Another great stay with Bobby! We can always count on Bobby for being totally flexible and reliable when we go out of town and are in need of sitting for our two dachshunds. He is so easy to work with and always sends a steady stream of photos, so we can travel easily knowing our precious pups are in good hands. Thank you Bobby!

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!

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.

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!)

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!

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.
