I am very thankful to Ben for stopping in to feed and walk Max when I was gone. It was a relief to know that he was well taken care of and he wears a happy boy when I got home!

Kahlua did well with Ben. No other dogs or cats, which is perfect for her, and he works from home. I will use his services again.

GMU Professor Who Loves Dogs

Summary:

My name is Ben and I'm a Marketing Professor at George Mason University that does this on the side for the love of dogs. When it comes to dogs and to my clients in general, I'm highly professional, experienced, and reliable. I guarantee that I'll provide the best service your dog could possibly have, meaning peace mind for you and a fun mini vacation for your dog(s). Boarding your dog is stressful time ...

What Ben would like to know about your dog

I love all dogs. Dogs that have bitten people are the only dogs I won’t take. Dogs can bite very hard! I’m an former athlete and can handle large dogs but had a mini poodle growing up (along with standards) and so know how to handle small dogs too.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Ben watches your pet

There are great walking trails in my neighborhood and a small fenced enclosure to play fetch. Dogs love me I have a very positive energy and they pick up on that. I’ve been with dogs my entire life and just love spending time with them. They will enjoy their time with me and if you want me to exercise your dog I’m happy to (I’m big into fitness), or if your dog is older or the weather is adverse I’ll make sure your dog catches a great nap.
