Derek did a great job taking care of our dog Sunny for four days while we were away. Sunny was not familiar with Derek beforehand but he managed to put him at ease and they became fast friends. Derek and Sunny did lots of playing and walking. It was nice to get texts and pictures from Derek throughout the stay. Will definitely use Derek again.
