David was great! Responsive, responsible and attentive to both the needs of my dog, Owen, and to me. And he is a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely have him back!!
David was not only, very professional and kind with my pups, but also connected with my needs and instructions for my elderly dog! Thank you!! Will DEFINITELY use David again soon!
Responsible dedicated dog lover
I’m an enthusiastic and responsible sitter, with years of pet care experience. I have a dog of my own, Owen, a Wheaten terrier, who is about 9. I have somewhat extensive experience in non-professional dog sitting. I have had 2 roommates with dogs (Pebbles the Chihuahua and Clint the Hound/Shepard mix) who had to go out of town pretty frequently.

What David would like to know about your dog
My policy around meet and greets is to let the owners pick the location, since they know where their dog(s) will feel more comfortable meeting someone for the first time. I will ask the owner beforehand if the dog has any issues with getting pet by new people, or issues with any kind of petting (maybe they have a bad back left leg or something). If they are good with new people I'd essentially greet the dog the only way I know how- with a punch of petting and hellos and if there is a treat to be doled out, I would gladly do the doling. I do not have any breed preferences, but in terms of what I'd want to know about the dog, usually that includes
1) Walk times/frequency
2) Behaviour around other dogs and children
3) Any usual walk routes to take/avoid
4) Feeding times/policies, same for treats
5) Allowed on the couch? Bed?
I have no preference in terms of breed!
