Bodhi had an amazing time with Gary and his family. They have a lovely home close to Discovery park. He was worn out for days after we picked him up.

Gary and family were amazing! Our dog was well cared for and very happy the entire time. We love that he had another dog friend and kids around to keep him company. Thank you!!!

This was Hardie's first time with Gary and his family and I was thrilled to find them so close to where I live in Magnolia. Very nice family (and dog) and Hardie seemed to settle in very nicely for a two week stay and actually didn't appear anxious to leave when I came to pick him up. Ha! That's a 5 star review for sure. I would certainly recommend Gary and family to my friends ...

Friendly, dog-loving family

We're a family of 4 (kids 7 and 8) that absolutely loves dogs. We don't have our own pet right now, so dog-sitting is the next best thing.

We do not have a fenced yard, but always walked our dogs to nearby Discovery Park a couple times a day. We also live on a very quiet street, and have a backyard if your dog isn't the kind that wanders off.

We tend to spoil dogs ...

What Gary would like to know about your dog

No preferences on breed. We like to know if your dog likes kids, or course, and what activities they enjoy.....fetch, walks, tug of war, swimming, etc.

We also like to know if your dog has any fears, unusual habits, or special needs that we should be aware of.

When Gary watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We live 2 blocks from Discovery Park so that's our go-to spot for walks. There's also a dog park about a mile away, if your dog prefers to socialize!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
The sleeping arrangement really depends on your dog's preferences.
The kids like dogs on their beds at wife and I not as much. We can keep a bed or crate in any of the bedrooms, if your pet likes to sleep near their "pack".

Time I'll spend with your dog
My wife works from home, so there's someone at home the majority of the time, so your dog's alone time will be fairly minimal. Very rarely longer than 4 hours at a time.
