Colin was super sweet with Lily and made sure to ask me my preferences every step of the way. He communicated throughout the day about what was going on with Lily as well, which I appreciated!

If there were two words to describe Colin McGovern as a dog caregiver, they would certainly be responsible and loving. Colin has a gift with dogs, which becomes apparent when he is caring for his own dog, Skippy. Observing Colin with Skippy is like watching two best friends. Colin brings Skippy outside to play multiple times a day, and is extremely energetic and engaged with the dog. Colin is always willing to run around and ...

This has tempered me for the "big dog" experience; excessive drooling, hair everywhere, LOUDNESS, jumping on people (I LOVE hugs!!). My current dog, a ...

When Colin watches your pet

I love nature, so parks and wooded areas are a favorite of mine. That being said, I understand a lot of pet owners dislike the risk of ticks and other woodland insects irritating their pet, so of course I'll consult with you before I take your dog anywhere! If your dog loves to swim, I can make that happen. I never tire of fetch, tug of war, and my capacity for belly rubs is endless.
