Ben was fantastic with our dogs. We have 2 Beagles and a terrier, all of whom can be quite challenging. Ben took it all in stride, and we had three happy puppy dogs when we returned. He kept in touch with us everyday with photos and text messages. The pups responded well to Ben's calm, mellow energy. We are contemplating two trips in 2019, and will be contacting Ben to pup sit. Thank you, Ben!

Ben is a ROCKSTAR!!! We had Ben this past week take care of our Malamute and he did an awesome job? Exceeded our expectations and sent pics of him.

Dog lover and rescue volunteer

I treat every dog like my own, I really care for them and look after how they're feeling and what they need. I am very affectionate with dogs, while also respectful of their space if they need it.

I've been dog sitting for about 5 years and helping with dog rescues for about 10 years.

Over the years, I have put in time with rescue operations in the US and overseas. In 2013 I had ...

What Ben would like to know about your dog

Before I take care of a dog, I like to know about their social comforts - are they comfortable around men and/or women, are they comfortable around other dogs (in case we come across another dog while walking or at the dog park), and are they comfortable riding in a car (in case I want to take them with me on errands or to lunch).

When Ben watches your pet

I like to make your dog part of my daily life, if it suits their social comfort, age and condition.

If they can go with me to lunch, coffee, etc. then I love to bring them. If they like to take it easy and walk around the block by your house, then we'll take it easy and do that. If they like to go to the dog park, that's always fun too!
