Craig is my neighbor, he is a kind and gentle man. He goes out of his way to make sure my driveway is clear of snow as I work night shifts. He also watches my 2 cats when I am out of town. I call him the cat whisperer. I would highly recommend him to watch your cat or dog and provide loving care.

When Craig watches your pet

I plan to be flexible and engage your animal in activities you suggest but, these are some ideas:
Canines: Walks around your neighborhood, local parks, car rides to dog parks, fetch, frisbee. Treats. Snuggles. Companionship.
Felines: Play time with favorite toys, listen to music, cuddles and brushing if they like that, watch tv. Treats. Talking/human interaction and companionship.
