Derek could not have been better with my girl Cora. He was very quick to respond and sent plenty of pictures and updates from their walk. He was also extremely reliable in taking care of her all week without me having to check in. He even went above and beyond by bringing in packages that were out by my door. Highly recommend and will definitely look to Derek again in the future!

Dog LOVER with Flexible Scedule

Dogs and pets bring me joy and I love caring for them. Going on walks, playing fetch, caring for, and goofing around with dogs is very enjoyable for me. The apartment building (The Elan at City Center) is dog friendly and has a great fenced in dog park and washing station (If you want your pup washed!). I work from home in downtown Raleigh and have plenty of time to give your pet the attention ...

What Derek would like to know about your dog

Small dogs are my preference but I like all breeds
