Chris is our go-to dog sitter! He is patient with them (especially our not-always-friendly pup, who definitely needs a particular kind of dog sitter) and extremely trustworthy. It's great to have him watch our dogs and know we don't have to worry AT ALL. He definitely gets dogs, and dog behavior. Our dogs LOVE him (and his dog! he has the world's sweetest dog, who is a friend to all). I highly recommend Chris!

Chris loves dogs and dogs love him! He spends hours at the dog park, hiking, and swimming with his big best friend, Eamon. I think my dog likes Chris more than the dog likes me!

Chris D would be an excellent dog walker/sitter for several reasons. He grew up having dogs in his family and taking responsibility for feeding, walking and general care of his pets.
He volunteered at a rescue center, this involved feeding, walking, cleaning up and providing love and care for each dog.
He relates very well to dogs and people and is a very reliable individual.
I would highly recommend Chris D for the position ...

Along with dog-sitting, I have volunteered at shelters in Edgecomb, Maine and St. Louis, Missouri. While I enjoy being with dogs in any setting ...
