Lukas stayed with Brian twice and on both times he seemed totally fine and comfortable, and so was I... :-) Upon arriving for his second stay Lukas wagged his tail signaling how happy and comfortable he was with Brian, whose calm demeanor and knowledge assures me Lukas is safe with him.

Brian is AWESOME with dogs! I've never seen anyone so calm when handling multiple dogs at once, but with such care. Luna was new to Brian's house but the other dogs were regulars at the dog hangout! He sent me tons of pics and I was able to rest assured that Lu was in good hands. She seemed to have really enjoyed her stay!

Leaving my dog at all is hard for me, so anytime I have to leave him I'm always nervous. That being said I am completely happy with the care Brain provided my dog Gibson over the Christmas holiday. Brian sent me photos, videos and updates everyday. Which made leaving my baby in his care much more comfortable for me. I also loved that Gibson was able to interact and play with other dogs. Most importantly ...

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, and doggy play ...

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.
