I was impressed with Dennis and his natural connection with dogs. My Lovey is extremely tempor.mental, suffice to say she thinks she is the queen. But Dennis won her heart in no time! He was on time on both days. I especially appreciated the updates and photos of their walk. Dennis is courteous, respectful and knowledgeable about dogs. I definitely recommend Dennis! I'll l be calling on him in the future!

Dennis is amazing! His desire to learn more about my dogs health issues and his great communication, flexibility, and time spent getting to know Quigley and his needs/routine was way more than expected. I highly recommend and will be using Dennis again!

Dennis has been great with my puppy. He is very knowledgeable and has even helped train him while I’ve been at work throughout the week. Well worth the money and I feel very grateful as he’s been teaching the pup tricks and good manners.

About Dennis

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

Love Pets, Love People.

Grew up with a Heinz-57 mutt named Copper and have loved our furred friends ever since. Haven't been able to have my own pet since so I've lived vicariously through other people's puppers. Former combat medic in the Army Reserve, so I can handle the rare emergency. Used to work corporate security so I respect your privacy and physical security of your home. Additionally, learned from acquaintances with military working dog handlers and various law ...

What Dennis would like to know about your dog

I want to know what your dog likes, dislikes, it's quirks and habits (oh and favorite toy). Are they related to the energizer bunny when a frisbee or tennis ball is around or do you have to pry them off the pet bed with a crowbar? Will they greet visitors with a canine opera or go and hide under the couch? If you have training goals or standards, that's great! I love all breeds, but have the additional benefit of being able to handle larger or reactive fur-friends who may leash-pull for the occasional squirrel or other distraction. I'm happy to meet other-than-canine pets, too, like cats, birds, reptiles or the family guinea pig. I'll gladly consider more exotic variants on a case-by-case basis. (I've secretly always wanted to meet a house-trained miniature horse or pot-belly pig.)

When Dennis watches your pet

I have access to resident only lake access (see photos), so if you have a water dog who's good off leash or on a long lead, they can swim (with your permission of course.) I have access to an enclosed tennis court that can double as an off-leash area great for snagging frisbees or tennis balls, which I love to throw for 'em. I have a small backyard, but enough room (and drainage) for potty breaks for senior pups who may not be up to a long walk. I'm a big fan of Washington's support of local parks and trails (Soos Creek trail is very close to the house.) and Googling/using Yelp for local off-leash dog parks (depending on the dog's limits) or, hypothetically, if your fur-friend has a regular social appt. with the local German Shepard at Reber Ranch, I'll see if we can oblige. :D
