Hi, this is a testimonial for Emerson Birrell on Emerson, is terrific. Happy and responsible. Honest. A pet-lover of all sorts, is especially good with dogs (large and small). Dogs always sense this in Emerson and within seconds, Emerson and the dogs are on the floor having fun. Emerson watched our two dogs for a week this year (12lb and 69 lb). My endorsement of Emerson is 100 percent!

Emerson loves dogs and all animals! He is a responsible college student and has hands on experience working at a veterinary clinic. I recommend Emerson enthusiastically!

What Emerson would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if your dog has any special needs, so that I can educate myself about how to make them comfortable and safely play with or walk them.

Can provide daily exercise

I love to go on runs, and can run/walk 2 dogs at a time. I can easily interest a dog in a toy and make anything into a game, especially if it involves food! I know how to entertain 2 dogs at once, as well as making sure they are both played with in ways that they like, even if they have different energy levels. I'm not allergic to any dog breeds or dander, and I love big dogs!
