Loves all dogs! Available SE MA/RI

Pet care experience

I've known dogs since before I could walk and talk. I am about 11 weeks old in my first Christmas pic. Before I could walk I was crawling and communing with dogs. From age 10 on I had responsibility for my family's dog. I've been to dog training classes at two different locations with two different dogs over the years. I'm familiar with "control" collars and working with them as well as more modern positivity methodology. I'm also a relatively big guy who at 6 ft 2 in and 220 lb feels comfortable in saying I can walk your two large or giant sized dogs. I know my rates are higher than most but I pride myself on my ability to work with any household dog and I always work with your dogs alone as some of my charges need individual attentions. I never mix those from various owners unless both owners are in on such a plan. Regarding my rates, an overnight is 12 hours typically something like 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. or 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. if you have a customer request that doesn't fit Rover's buckets we can certainly discuss if you wish to contact me. If needed I also have house sitting references available.

Chris has stayed with our two senior dogs and cat twice now. Highly recommend booking Chris, especially for multiple pets and/or seniors who may need a little extra care. We got great updates throughout our trip and the pets seemed very happy to have him around. We also had asked him to help with some medications and other care that he gladly did. Thanks so much, Chris!

Chris took great care of our two senior dogs who required a little extra care due to their age. He sent very thorough updates and photos and treated our dogs like they were his own. We are looking forward to Chris dogsitting for us again next month!

Chris is amazing! Very professional, reliable, and responsible. He watched our two old dogs while we were out of town and took wonderful care of them. It gave us such peace of mind to know they were safe and well cared for. He treated them as if they were his own. Our dogs love him! He updated us regularly and spent lots of time giving them attention and love. Will book him again in the future!

Now I find myself dogless currently and looking for a way to make part-time income as well as fulfill my need for canine companionship. I prefer not to travel too far but I can. Beyond 15 miles I do apply a mileage charge.

Information Chris P. would like to know about your pet

Does you dog have any quirks? Perhaps they don't like a certain gender or a certain color of hat? Is their stool typically well formed? Anything unique you can tell me about your pooch? Does your dog know how to walk or is he a puller? Are there any treats you have for him? Have you attempted any walk or heel training?

A typical day

I walk about my city a lot. The vast majority of the time I am on sidewalks or in a park. Typically I walk 2-4 miles myself but sometimes less so with a dog who needs to check out all the scents along the way. On average with dogs it's about 1 mi on the half hour walks and 2 mi on the hour walks.

For the past 30 years, I've had a Rottweiler or two most of the time. I've lived alone with them and possibly like dogs better than I do people and feel more understood by them than anything. Recently in December of 2021 my latest Rottweiler passed away from cancer. We were regular daily visitors at the Attleboro Dog Park. I'm wide open now and missing my dog daily so I am loving meeting new friends through this app. My loss is your gain.
