I highly recommend Derek to be your dog walker! He is amazingly loving with animals, especially dogs and grew up with 4 of his own! He takes special care of our Goldendoodle and treats her as one of his own. He's perfect for this job!

Derek is a compassionate and nice young man whom has grown up with many dogs. He not only walks, plays, runs with them but one of his family’s dog has a form of lupus. Derek has given her medications, taken her to appointments and also, most importantly, lots of cuddles and petting. He is conscientious about being early anywhere he is going and is just a stand up guy.
