Derek was an excellent sitter for my dog, Emma. He was available for a meet up prior to the stay to make sure that I was comfortable with Emma and his dynamic. He followed any instructions for her care and schedule that I had accurately and was very caring towards Emma as if she were his own. I would definitely use Derek again and am thankful that Derek was available to watch Emma for me.

Derek has looked after my shiba many times since he was a puppy. Derek has also helped me raise and train him, which was very helpful because his patience, structured, and loving approach helped my dog quickly learn. I am very impressed with his commitment to animals. He is attentive to dogs’ needs and provides them with lots of love. I will definitely be using his services in the future!

Derek is very attentive and interactive with animals. He watched my senior pug and bengal cat. He has the right balance of both compassion and energy to take extra care of a senior pet and manage the antics of my bengal. He keeps them on a schedule and they always seem to have a great time with him.

I’ll shower your dog with love!

Dogs have always been a valuable part of my life! I have extensive experience raising, training, and caring for dogs. I understand the diverse needs of dogs and can provide the proper care necessary to attend to those needs. I have experience caring for puppies and know how to attend to their developmental and house training needs. I have cared for older dogs and can administer medication if necessary. Having had dogs all my life ...

What Derek would like to know about your dog

I think it's important to know everything I can about a dog: temperament, anything that triggers them (in excitement or fear), sociability, eating/drinking preferences, special needs, frequency of walks, if they are house trained, do they chew, any special "doggy proofing" required. Anything that I should know, please tell! I don't have a breed preference as I have experience with small, medium, and dogs.

When Derek watches your pet

Walks to the park and explorations in my backyard garden, hide-and-seek in my home, lots of love and snuggles (if they want it), a quiet space when they are tired/less social.
