Tanner had another great stay with Ben! Ben is always very accommodating with pick up and drop off times and Tanner is always happy to see Ben!

Great stay overall. The backyard was lovely, Fitz clearly had a blast. He was very tired out. Will definitely be using Benjamin again!

I have used Ben's dog walking services on numerous occasions, most recently for the last two weeks while I was out of town. He is very pleasant, reliable and flexible in meeting our requests. Maisy, our energetic (and slightly anxious) setter loves him and she doesn't love everybody!! Ben is great and I would recommend him highly!

Your dogs vacation home

My name is Benjamin Mitchell and I am a 27 year old dog enthusiast. A few years ago my life changed for the better when my sister adopted her dog, Rufio. I had no idea that little 7 pound Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund, that prior to her picking him up, I was hard-pressed to say something that small was a dog!) was going to change the way I operate my own life. However, soon Rufio became ...

What Benjamin would like to know about your dog

I love dogs of all sizes, shapes and breeds. I will obviously have some questions but no overarching concerns.

When Benjamin watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I love to walk my dogs on the Minuteman trail in Arlington/Cambridge/Lexington. I live directly off of Massachusetts avenue and as such am less than .25 miles from an entrance to the trail. On top of that Spy Pond is right atop my street. My Shiba wont touch the water but all the other dogs have loved it, and with your permission I will bring the dog to the water (weather permitting). I also like to bring my dogs to Menotomy Rocks Park in Arlington, MA for a little bit of a hike, there is also a small pond there for the dogs to play in. Finally I also like to frequent the area dog park at Thorndike.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
All of the dogs in my house sleep in the bedroom with me, if you prefer your dog to be crated and kept out of the bedroom I will oblige, but in general the dogs sleep in my room. I have a large wire crate with a thick dog bed in it as well as a Yogibo (extremely large bean bag chair) that my dogs love to lounge on, in my bedroom.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am a full time walker and sitter nowadays so your dog will either be walking with me all day or so tired and passed out back at my place with my own dogs. Whatever their activity level we can make their stay work.

Extra house-sitting services
I also don't mind taking care of in home plants, and other animals (fish, hamsters, rabbits, etc.) whilst you are away.
