Derek was super flexible and easy to work with. He kept in contact with me, while I was away. Really allowed me to be at ease and not worry. Always a little unsure leaving Dexter with someone new, but I would use Derek again for sure. Highly recommended!

Derek was great with Wrigley while I was out of town! Communication was great and I can tell Wrigley had a great time. Will definitely request Derek again!

Derek was great! Super easy location and took great care of Rose all weekend. Communication was easy before and during the stay. Couldn’t have asked for a better dog sitter for the weekend!

The 'fun uncle' for your fur fam

Active dog lover who can't have one of my own due to my travel schedule. I live in a decent sized apartment with a dog park on location and suitable areas near by for safe long walks. I've had the pleasure of raising 4 dogs- 2 Labs, a foster German Shepherd, and an Aussie. Practiced in crate training, hiding meds in food, leash walking, reward based training methods, and being the go to pet sitter ...
