David is great! My shy dog can be a challenge, but David became fast friends with him. Reliable, informative — we feel very lucky.

Caring for other's dogs since 1990

Despite having severe allergies and asthma as a kid, I couldn't get enough of the fuzz! I often chose my friends based on the pets they had in their lives. Although I didn't have any pups growing up, I spent tons of time around dogs, and got lots of experience caring for "alternative" pets.

What David would like to know about your dog

I have experience dealing with all kinds of dogs, from chihuahua's to Great Dane's, new born puppies to canines that are nearing their end life stages, pups that love everyone and everything, to pups that have very particular likes and dislikes and aren't averse to letting their teeth do the talking. Before sitting with a pet I would want to know their history with other dogs, history with strangers, likes and dislikes, fears and favorites. The more information I have the more comfortable I can make the dog.

When David watches your pet

Living near several parks and just a little bit from the lake, the pets I care for will get tons of time outside! I love making each dog feel as comfortable as possible when they're away from their people, so I do my best to keep them on the same schedule they're on at home.
