BJ has been walking Indy every day while I’m at work since August and I was initially very impressed by the way she approached him the first time. Indy can be quite difficult when meeting strangers, especially in my apartment, but she was very calm and patient with him. Now, he loves her and she has faithfully been my dog walker for weeks. There are even some days I’ve had to cancel or ...

I am so uneasy leaving my cats home when I am on vacation but BJ was so great with them that I was able to enjoy myself. She was very good about checking in with me and letting me know how the cats were doing, and I have already booked her again for my next trip. Highly recommend

Experienced, Mature Dog Owner

As a dog owner, I know how important your peace of mind is. I'm retired, with time, energy and enthusiasm to devote to your pets.

My partner Shari and I have owned chow chows for 25 years, always with 2 or 3 cats and an aquarium as well. Over the years I have looked after dogs, cats, parrots (and baby parrots!), and fish. At our Meet & Greet, I make sure I get all the ...

What BJ would like to know about your dog

I want to learn as much about your dog as possible so that our stay can get off on the right paw. Beyond the usual questions like, what is their routine like and do they have any health concerns, I have a few other specific things I'd like to know about your dog. Do loud sounds bother them? When we're walking, do they want to meet other dogs? Is it okay if I introduce them to other dogs? May children pet him if they ask and are properly introduced? What are their favorite things to do? Do you go to the local parks or just for walks? Where is their favorite place to be scratched? The more I know, the better I can make your pup's stay.

When BJ watches your pet

If part of your usual routine, I'd love to take your dog to the dog park! We could bring my dog along, she loves adventure and making new friends. If your dog is as energetic as I am, we can put some miles on my FitBit! Walking is the best exercise there is, for dogs and humans alike. When we're at home, we'd keep to your dog's usual routine, adding lots of special attention, including conversation! I love chatting with my canine clients, it helps make them comfortable and builds our relationship.
