I've used Ben's services a few times and my pups are always well taken care of. He also went above and beyond by bringing in some unexpected package deliveries that arrived while we were gone. Thanks Ben!!

Ben did a fabulous job of taking care of our kids while we were out of town. We have a difficult foster staying with us that requires medication and Ben took it all in stride.

I highly recommend Ben ...

Ben stayed at our house with our two elderly dogs for an entire week and took great care of them. They are a bit challenging as each requires daily medication and has their 'old dog' quirks, but they were happy and content and well cared for. He even watered my flowers and my house looked great when I got home.

Very open schedule, always had dogs

Good news everyone! I am now at a different day job and I have much more time to dedicate to taking care of your best friend! I now work part time at Peet's Coffee, as well as the Clark College Bookstore.

What Ben would like to know about your dog

How is your dog around other animals and people? Are they trained to know commands, are they food motivated? How house trained are they? Are they up to date with their vaccinations? Which vet should I take them to in case of emergency?
I have a soft spot for small long-haired breeds, but I like most any dog.

When Ben watches your pet

I love going on long trail walks at parks, playing catch, tug of war and keep away, and just running around.
