Derek is now part of our family .....even saying his name and my two dogs go crazy and cannot wait to see him. He is kind, loving and very communicative. Absolute tops!!

Dog LOVER with Flexible Scedule

Dogs and pets bring me joy and I love caring for them. Going on walks, playing fetch, and goofing around with dogs makes me happy :) My apartment building (The Elan at City Center) is dog friendly and has a great fenced in dog park. I work from home in downtown Raleigh and have plenty of time to give your pet the attention it deserves!

**We do not have a fenced in yard, however we do ...

When Derek watches your pet

A stay with me will include a lot of attention. Walks every 2-3 hours and plenty of play time in the dog park (if you like). Your pet will get all he attention he/she needs :)
