Got multiple pictures everyday, usually twice a day. Brian is a laid-back guy who loves and understands dogs. Would use him again.

Brian was very good with Zilla. He took lots of pictures and it looked like she was really enjoying her time. My dog is a bit of a handful he said but he was very great with her. He wasn't too happy that I showed up late so make sure you are punctual. He also doesn't seem to like to show his place to people that are dropping off which is understandable because it probably ...

Play All Day! - Preferred Sitter

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. My home is my castle for myself and my two beloved boxers, an oasis right in the center of LA. 

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 your dog stays with Brian

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.
