Derek is amazing! He super communicative with me and very attentive to my little monster. Bear has lots of energy and Derek’s mid day runs help him get out that energy in a positive way. Plus I know Derek loves Bear (and is so patient with him)and Bear loves him right back! It makes me so happy to know my little guy is in good hands :) definitely recommend Derek!!!
