Dennis was my first pet sitter from Rover. He was very caring, easy to communicate with (before and during his stay) and we felt comfortable with him in our home while we were far away for the holidays. He went above and beyond to keep our home clean, let us know what was going on with the pets (2 dogs and 2 cats) and to provide all the extra love needed to our "Old Man" ...

Dennis was the best pet sitter we have ever had (and I’ve used Rover quite a bit). Our dog is very shy and has a hard time when we are away - Dennis was so patient and good with him. Even though Milo liked to be in his safe zone in our bed, Dennis would bring him treats and got in some pets. He was also great with our cat Penny who can sometimes be ...

Dennis is great beyond expectations. He has a gentle and friendly connection with animals immediately. Our dog, Belle was incredibly comfortable with him immediately, well cared for and loved in our absence. Dennis is medically savvy, and our concerns about Belles medical issues were in experienced hands. Ok, Dennis handled EVERYTHING he encountered with his calm and capable demeanor. He cared for our pigeons and even donned a beekeepers suit and uprighted our beehive that ...

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 makes 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
