Ben is great! He has been so flexible and our dogs love him. He always responds promptly. I don’t trust a lot of people with my dogs but we are so lucky to have found Ben on Rover. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for someone to do drop in requests.

Lifelong animal lover

I have had dogs all my life and couldn't imagine it any other way! I love taking my own pair of high energy labradors on all sorts of adventures and would love the chance to provide the same for your pups. Not only am I comfortable caring for your canines, but I have experience with all sorts of critters from box turtles to black bears thanks to my previous work in a zoo setting.

What Ben would like to know about your dog

In addition to basics like health/feeding needs, I would like to know if your dog enjoys interacting with other animals or prefers solitude. My schedule is very flexible, so multiple scheduled visits throughout the day or even into the night are easy for me if you're going to be away.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

If your dog likes canine company I would be happy to include my own pups on our walks for social interaction. If that's not your dog's style, however, I am more than happy and able to provide whatever individually focused activities best suit your animal.

My dogs and I spend a lot of time roaming the parks around Rochester as well as the surrounding area such as Whitewater state park and the Bear Cave area around Stewartville. Does your dog have a favorite trail? Let me know and we'll go adventuring!
