Desmond was responsive, excited about spending time with my pup and shared updates throughout the day. My dog came home tired and happy.

First time using this service and I couldn’t be happier. Sal came back a tired and worn out pup.

When Desmond watches your pet

I do numerous activities with dogs in my care. I toss a tennis ball or frisbee for dogs who are into that. Also, we have 2 kiddy pools for dogs to cool off in, If your four-legged friend likes car rides, those can happen occasionally too :) And as long as you and your dog(s) are ok with it, a dog park visit is always a possibility (I have a minivan, so your dog will stay dry and comfortable during transport). With most dogs, an exhausted dog is a relaxed, happy dog, so I tend to focus on having the dogs play with each other as well as me in our amazingly landscaped big back yard (haven't met a dog who has complained about the yard or the level of activity here yet). For cold, wet days we have a covered back porch and a heated garage so that dogs can stay dry and warm. Of course, they still have access to the yard if they feel like gettin' a bit muddy for fun too!
