About Derek

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

Eye catching headline

Being very out-doorsy and having two herding dogs of my own that require insane amounts of excercise, I love getting outside and running, walking or hiking with them. I know the exact feeling of having your dog being holed-up inside while you’re out somewhere. This is where I can hopefully step in and provide a run, walk, or just a quick check-in to provide you peace of mind, as well as get some excercise ...

What Derek would like to know about your dog

The only thing I’d need to know about your dog is how much excercise they really need? Are they a runner, walker, like to keep it easy? I’ve experienced them all and want to provide the same type of care you’d provide them.

When Derek watches your pet

Being native to The Woodlands area, I have a strong knowledge of many trails, dog parks, and hidden gems that dogs love. These are places I take my own dogs to so I know they’re sound and without a lot of other dogs to avoid any conflict that may arise.
