Ben is a fantastic dog walker! Everytime he comes to walk my dog, my dog gets extremely excited to see him and enjoys every second with him. He is trustworthy, responsible, and always willing to help when I am in need. I wouldn’t want anyone else to walk my dog!

You won’t find a more trustworthy, responsible and reliable dog walker than Ben. His temperament is calm and quiet which allows the dogs to be very comfortable with him. Ben grew up with many breeds of dogs, both large and small, and has worked in a boarding kennel in a veterinary clinic . The combination of reliable work ethic and a variety of dog experience makes Ben a natural choice for your dog walker.

I would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for a dependable, caring dog sitter. Ben is the son of a veterinarian and grew up caring for and taking care of animals. He is responsible, compassionate, and trustworthy. Most importantly, he loves dogs and would care for your fur baby as if it were his own. I've personally seen Ben interact with dogs, including my own, and can say with confidence that your pet will be ...

What Ben would like to know about your dog

Need to Know
-Attitudes towards male humans, male and female dogs, passerby strangers
-Attitudes/Reactions to wild animals (birds and squirrels)
-Voice and signal commands your dog reacts to (Ex: How do you tell your dog to sit?)
-Attitudes towards cars/vehicles (Ex: should I brace myself when a car passes in case your dog tries to chase it?)
-Conditions/Illnesses your dog has that would require my intervention during an emergency? (Diabetes, Heart conditions, etc.)

Senior Dog Experience

-I use several trails around the University of Washington to walk dogs, but if you are too far away from campus for me and your dog to get there and back in the time limit, then I will use a basic walk around your neighborhood instead! If you have a specific trail or route you use, or that your pet is comfortable with, please let me know about it!
-Your dog will enjoy one-on-one interaction/companionship with me in your neighborhood, or on the beautiful trails of the University of Washington. The Burke-Gilman trail is a route more populated with students and faculty, which I will use if your dog is friendly (or just unbothered/indifferent) towards people and other dogs, though I will not let your dog interact with them. If your dog requires less contact with people, another area would be the Union Bay Natural Area! It sits right on the water near Husky Stadium and is very relaxing and quiet for animals as well as people. If your dog has a toy or item they like to take on walks, I'd be happy to make sure they don't lose it along the way! My dog loves to take his tennis ball on walks just to have in his mouth! I am very careful about leashes and holding onto the leash at all times because all the dogs I've ever had were not trained off-leash. Please talk to me about what I'm comfortable with, as well as what you're comfortable with, such as in a park area, or around traffic.
