Hyrum has been a dear friend to me for 5 years and he is the first person I recommend to spend time with your pets. He loves animals more than humans but beyond being an animal lover, Hyrum is helpful, clean, incredibly smart, kind, and did I mention helpful? This is the kind of guy you would wish to have in your life, especially if it means he is caring for your four-leggeds.
Hyrum Feriante is a responsible and respectful individual with a kind and caring attitude towards both animals and people. I would highly recommend his services as he will treat your home carefully and make sure that your animals are safe, healthy and happy in your absence!
Hyrum was lucky enough to be raised by a mom who loves animals. His best friend growing up was Ninja - an 80lb black lab. After Ninja passed Hyrum's new best friend was Moose - a 90 pound German Shepherd. Like his mom, he treats dogs like humans, like his best friends - talks to them, wrestles with them, races them. They respond to his touch and truly enjoy being with him.

I'm relaxed, patient, and I like to play and love (if they're up for it). I grew up with 2-4 dogs and a few cats (strays and rescues), guinea pigs, rats, goats, and the occasional gold fish. Our pets were all considered members of the family and were given as much the run of the house as any kids (once they new the ground rules) and we were able to rehabilitate many abuse cases back ...
What Hyrum would like to know about your dog
The only thing I would like to know is if the dog has any "triggers" as far as clothing, areas of touch, or behavior; so that I can respect those boundaries while we make friends.
