My dog and I love Derek! I am a crazy dog mom and my dog is a little diva and he is wonderful with both of us. This was my first time booking Rover and I'm just so glad we found Derek.

I'll love your dog like you do!

I'm an avid dog-lover and have been my whole life. I go out of my way to pet every dog that I can when I am walking down the street. I love all breeds and see all the great things each dog has to offer. I love giving dogs lots of pets and cuddles, and I will play with them until they are all played out. My golden retriever, Ellie, has had a life-long medical ...

What Derek would like to know about your dog

When meeting a dog, I always want to get a good idea of the type of demeanor he/she has. Some of the things I'll ask are whether the dog gets along with other animals, whether it gets along with other humans or children, if it has any medical issues I need to be aware of, and any other questions related to the dog that might be important information. I am welcome to all breeds and do not discriminate against any dog. All dogs are bundles of happiness in my book!

When Derek watches your pet

Any dog that I stay with will never even know that I'm a completely different person. I will play with them, give them lots of pets and cuddles, and take them on walks throughout the neighborhood just like they would getif they were with their mom or dad. One activity I sincerely enjoy playing with dogs is using a Chuck-It to throw tennis balls as far as I can. I also love to play tug of war with dogs that have lots of energy that they need to let out if permitted.
