Derrick was a life saver! we had a last minute chance to go on a cruise and Derrick agreed to watch over our 2 Labs for a week with just one day notice! He went above and beyond our sitter requirements and we couldn't be happier. Will definitely use him again in the future.

Derrick took care of my dog and cat and did a great job. My dog is diabetic and he was knowledgeable about how to do his insulin shots and gave me great peace of mind while taking care of him. I highly recommend Derrick to take care of anyone’s fur babies.
