Derrick was awesome! He was very friendly and trustworthy. He even sent us pictures and a video. Our pets were happy and well cared for. We will definitely ask Derrick to pet sit for us again. THANK YOU DERRICK!

Could not have been better. Derrick quickly made friends with our dog Riley during meet-and-greet sessions. He visited multiple times and kept us up to date with what was going on while we were away. Our dog presents a number of challenges for a dog sitter and Derrick handled them all with ease.

I am a dog's best friend!

I've taken care of my own dog for five years now, and others from Rover for 2 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.

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.
