Your dog's buddy when you're away.

I am a life long dog lover, who got into dog walking and house/dog sitting when friends and family needed help while at work or on vacation. I have experience with small dogs like my Chihuahua friend, Chico, medium sized dog like my Cockapoo friend, Muffin, and large dogs like my American Bulldog friend, Loki.

I am available 7 days a week, at all times of day. I am certified in canine and feline ...

What Dave would like to know about your dog

I have no breed restrictions whatsoever. I specialize in shy and anxious dogs. I spend time at their pace and get them to trust me. This usually takes anywhere from a couple of minutes to a half hour. I always make steady progress and the dogs and owners end up very happy with me.

If you have any concerns about your dog, let's do a meet and greet! I have been told clients, "My dog does not like strangers.", when the dog and I meet we quickly become buddies. I wish I could explain it, I guess I have good dog vibes.

When Dave watches your pet

On walks, I will usually feel out what your dog likes to do. Some dogs like to go, go, go, while others like mill around and smell everything. 1- 1 1/2 miles in 30 minutes is the average. Nearby parks are great. Home visits or housesitting usually entails some fetch, lots of petting, and just having a good time depending on your dog's personality.
