Brian was great with Rosie. We have utilized his services twice and both times have been great.

My dog came back with a deep gash in her head. She has a scar now since. He seemed like a nice friendly guy and the price was good but I just think he takes on way too many dogs big and small for one person to handle. Too many to care for at a time. Also sanitary concerns. Not worth the risk.

Brian is wonderful with dogs. Molly was reluctant to come in at first but he was patient with her and once she was dropped off, she had the time of her little life. She didn't want to leave! Brian is attentive to your dog and goes the extra mile to send you photos while you're away to let you know your pup is in good hands. The next time I am out of town, I ...

Play All Day! - Preferred Sitter

I recently relocated to Oregon. Until I get a chance to update everything, please enjoy my original profile. Thank you!
I grew up on a small ranch in North County San Diego, was in 4H, and absolutely love all animals. The main reason I bought a house (as opposed to a condo or town home) was so I could have a yard for dogs.

I work from home, so I'm always around. A doggy door ...

What Brian would like to know about your dog

Unfortunately, I no longer accept Huskies, GSPs, or Rhodesians. I like to know if potential guests are housebroken and spayed or neutered. I like to know if they have any aggression issues, with either food, toys, or proximity. What is their socialization experience? Have you boarded them before? Do you go to dog parks? I also like to know if they have all their shots. I love dogs whose owners are generally punctual. I love long term stays when I can really get to know a dog.

When Brian watches your dog

Here's where we'll take our walks
As you can see in my photos, my neighborhood is fairly quiet and great for walking around. It's got tons of grass, trees, and bushes and flowers for them to sniff and do their business on. I take my responsibility for your dog very seriously, so I don't take them anywhere off leash at all.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
The dogs sleep with me in my bedroom, either on my bed, the sofa chair, or on one of the dog beds on the floor. You're also welcome to bring a crate or dog bed of your own if you wish, if that's what they're most used to at home.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am home 23+ hours a day most days. The dogs are free to roam the house, but most of them tend to get attached to me and follow me around the house.
