I needed someone last minute. Derek came over to meet us the same day I contacted him & agreed to help. There were few people available during the Thanksgiving holiday but Derek watched our girl & kept me updated with pictures too. I highly recommend Derek & will use him again in the future.

Derek did a great job taking care of checking in with my dog for me while I was out of town. Good peace of mind knowing that things are being watched over.

My Fiancé Calls Me "Dog Whisperer"

I currently have three large dogs (boxers), two of which I have raised since they were born and one that I rescued. I am an active member of Carolina Boxer Rescue, having fostered five dogs and successfully placed all five (find our Facebook Page: "the Boxer Farm"). When fostering, the foster dogs and my dogs are handled separately (if necessary). In order to further accommodate potential foster dogs with the Rescue I converted my garage ...

What Derek would like to know about your dog

I would love to know daily schedule (feeding, bathroom, exercise), how much they are fed and at what specific times, when they are typically let out to go to the bathroom, if there are any favorite toys or treats, medication schedules and primary veterinary clinic in case of emergencies (I use Grace Animal Hospital located in Lexington, SC).

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Derek watches your pet

My neighborhood is a dog-friendly neighborhood with ample space to walk a dog. I have a large fenced in backyard that is unobstructed by playground equipment, trash or any other potential dangers for dogs. I also live in close proximity to two dog parks and have a membership to both.
