David is an amazing caregiver and wonderful human being. I've seen David take care of his own pets as well as other people's pets with such thoughtful care. David has also house sat for my family on several occasions. We always feel comfortable leaving our house to David because we know he will keep it safe and taken care of! I would recommend David as a dog sitter and house sitter to anyone!
