Derrick and his dog, Chance, we're kind enough to take our doodle in for 11 days. We were nervous about leaving our Maggie w someone for so long but it worked out very nicely. Derrick seems to be a caring young man who loves animals and works to ensure a positive experience for his guests. We couldn't be more pleased and Maggie tells us that she'd be pleased to return to Derrick. Great experience. Derrick ...

As expected, Derrick provided exceptional services with my dog Caesar. He is more than accommodating and is extremely flexible when it comes to scheduling. I intend on booking in the near future with Derrick and you should too. He will treat your dog like his own.

I'll love them like they're my own

Hi! My name is Derrick. I am a Senior in Animal at NC State, currently saving up money to go back and finish my degree. I LOVE animals and am looking for a way to help others while generating some extra income. I grew up on a dairy farm in Pittsboro, NC and I couldn't see my life without animals. I have a dog of my own that I adopted from the Wake County shelter ...

What Derrick would like to know about your dog

The only thing I expect from the dogs staying over is that they are friendly. I have a dog of my own and I just want everyone to get along. Chance knows no strangers and sees every other dog as his best friend, I just hope that they will love him the same way.

When Derrick watches your pet

I absolutely adore animals, so I will be fairly hands on with them while they're staying over. I enjoy spoiling my pets, but I will abide by your rules as far as giving treats and furniture/bed rules. Everyone will go out for play time/potty breaks every few hours as expected and will be heavily supervised during the entire stay.
