Derrick is great! He’s very friendly, responsive and well-experienced with dogs. He does a great job sending me photos and videos of my pup while I’m at work and those videos make my day! :) I’d definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a caring dog walker.

Derrick is AMAZING! We just moved to the Bay Area and trust him with our pup Luke. We will definitely be repeat clients.

I am a dog's best friend!

I've taken care of my own dog for 8 years now, and others from Rover for 5 years. Some people think I'm crazy because I sometimes value my dog's interests over my own. I've trained and raised my own pup since he was 8 weeks old. I have done and still continue to do research in regards to my dogs needs to insure a healthy lifestyle for him.

What Derrick would like to know about your dog

I would like to know about the dog before I puppy sit, so that the dog can have the best possible experience. I love all dogs, so I don't have a breed preference.

When Derrick watches your pet

I will make sure your dog receives my full attention during the duration of my doggy-sit. As long as there are prior instructions or background information, I will do my best to comply. I can walk or run with dogs, play fetch until he/she gets tired, give belly rubs until they get tired of it, and even try my best to teach them new tricks if you want. I will make sure your dog has just as much fun with you.
