I can highly recommend Derek to anyone looking for a home like place to care for your dog! Our very spoiled dog loved his time with Derek. He was exercised regularly and was given medications every day! Will definitely bring Jolly back next time!

Derek was great, he even taught our dog how to use the iPhone and send us updates! :) We’ll definitely consider him again in the future if needed.

Dr D's Pet Care & Fitness

I have had pets all my life and love animals. Your pet will be treated with all kinds of love and care. At the present time I have a Golden Retriever, Sammy, and a Belgium Shepherd, Decker. 4 years ago, the BC SPCA asked me to rehab this dog who had been hit by a car, had $3000 worth of surgery and no apparent owner.

What Derek would like to know about your dog

I HAVE INFORMATION PAPERS ABOUT THE OWNER AND PET ALONG WITH REQUIRING A COPY OF VACCINATION CERTIFICATES THAT I NEED AT LEAST A DAY BEFORE THE PET ARRIVES. ALSO,PLEASE INFORM US IF THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH PETS URINATING IN THE HOUSE. WE ASK THAT DOGS BE TREATED FOR FLEAS,PARTICULARLY IN THE SUMMER MONTHS.

When Derek watches your pet

Sometimes we go to a very secured fenced dog park and the pets can roam as they please. Otherwise, the dog is walked usually about 3.5 miles in my session.
