Christopher and his lovely family were amazing! I inadvertently left my dog, Miles, with a different type of dog treat that did not "sit well" with his tummy. This could have been a nightmare with a less knowledgeable, less patient or less kind sitter, but he quickly figureded it out and things soon got back to normal.
And the pics he sent were adorable! Christopher has a young daughter, and from the photos, it was ...

Christopher was a fantastic host with excellent communication. His apartment is large and his dog is very friendly. Chester enjoyed his stay. I would highly recommend Christopher as a host for your dog's stay.

We had to go out of town for 5 days and I email several Rover sitters, Christopher replied promptly. From the Meet and Greet to picking up and dropping the dog off, he was punctual, professional and very pleasant. I also met his dog Kyla, she is so sweet and well behaved, like a big teddy bear! He sent me several photos of Wesley and email about how he was doing, which made me feel ...

Will care for Dogs Big or Small

I have 35 years of experience with dogs and cats. I grew up with and owned giant breed dogs (Old English Mastiffs & Irish Wolfhounds) and have raised, trained and cared for many different dog breeds as well as cats. From puppies and kittens to elderly cats & dogs, I have cared for them all.

When Christopher watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
In the morning and evening I will walk your dog (along with my dog) to Civic Center. The route I take is a good 6-8 block radius back to my apartment building. I will also take the dogs to either Duboce Park or Dolores Park just about every day. I tend to go to Duboce Park more frequently as it is smaller, there are more dogs there and provides greater opportunity for socialization.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
That depends on the dog. I want your dog to feel safe and comfortable. So if your dog prefers it's crate or a dog bed, please bring those! Otherwise, I will let the dog decide :) As long as your dog is housebroken, he/she can sleep in bed with us or on the couch or on the floor.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Pretty much all day long! My schedule is very flexible and I don't anticipate leaving your dog alone for any extended period of time.
