Chris watched our puppy and cat for a long weekend. He was respectful of our home. He took great care of our pets and kept us updated through the weekend on how things were going.

Chris was very communicative and truly a dog lover. He watched my pup Sydney for a night while I was out at a concert and did a great job!

  • Verified Background Check

Self-employed writer, pooch lover

I began doing this to make ends meet during the Recession. As it turns out, I love doing it. I don't have any animals myself, so staying long-term isn't a problem. The longest dog-sitting gig I had was six weeks. It's easy to get a routine, and I am self-employed so my job is flexible. Big dogs, little dogs—I have fun with them all, who knows, I might have been a dog in a ...

What Chris would like to know about your dog

The main thing I like to know about a dog beforehand is their energy levels. Active, not active, etc. It's all fine and dandy, I just like to have an idea. A 2 year old dog is different to care for than a 12 year old dog. Also, if there are medications, that is good, absolutely. Though those types of clients are the ones who are usually upfront with me about it all. But in terms of breeds, absolutely not, I like all breeds and have cared for all breeds/sizes/ages.

When Chris watches your pet

Since I work from home, when I dogsit I enjoy changing up the routine by taking breaks and taking dogs for walks. Around neighborhoods are usually the preferred routes. Walking is good time for both of us, I do enjoy it. Dogs are great, playing around is an excellent way to unwind. I am an early riser, which most dogs tend to be as well. I can take any pets to nearby parks, etc., if the owners do that and feel it would be good for the dog(s). I own my own vehicle and can dogsit in any part of town.
