Per usual, Damen is the best out there. Treats our girl with tons of love (and treats). We’ll keep booking him as long as he takes reservations!
Damen is a fantastic sitter. Took care of my English Mastiff and Great Dane and was very communicative about any issues. Highly recommend.
Damen is absolutely fantastic with our dog, who is not always the easiest pup to handle. He is extremely knowledgeable about dog behavior and psychology, and will go above and beyond in making sure that your dog is cared for in your absence.
Years of experience w/ giant dogs
I grew up with four Great Danes and two Argentinian Dogos. I took partial responsibility for their care at about 10 years old, gradually increasing until I oversaw everything but veterinary visits by 15. I took animal behavior courses in college and have read several scholarly books on canine biology, communication & body language, psychology, behavior, evolutionary history, etc.
I'm active, and am happy to take dogs for long, long walks or moderate length jogs ...
What Damen would like to know about your dog
I would prefer to know the status of the dog's leash training, whether it's inclined to jump or kiss faces (don't mind at all, would just prefer to know what to expect), if it is an affectionate cuddler or prefers personal space, how they tend to react to other dogs (or squirrels, rats) while on a walk, things like that.
