Ian is great with dogs. He’s responsible and consistent while also having a big heart for all kinds of dogs. He’s walked my pit bull, my parent’s golden retriever, and friends’ small dogs all with the same care and compassion.

No dog is too difficult for me!

I have grown up with dogs in my home with behavioral problems and helped raise 5 dogs. I love my lab/pittie mix; playing, walking, swimming, and snuggling. I have raised my current dog since a puppy. I have experience with human behavior and it overlaps with dogs too! I love using treats, positive reinforcement, and can handle strong dogs. I'm used to walking dogs that don't get along with others and being careful at ...

What Ian would like to know about your dog

I am willing to work with any breeds. Give me a heads up about if they have any social/behavioral issues with other dogs, like to hunt or chase, any commands that you use specifically, any commands they struggle with, and their preferences for sleeping whether on their own bed or even sharing the bed with me. I share my bed with my dog.

When Ian watches your pet

I love taking dogs to neighborhood parks or the American River to get a change of scenery and smells. I can take them to dog parks if you want, but sometimes they're gross and learn bad behaviors from other dogs. I am comfortable with walking dogs on sidewalks and watching out for wild and stray animals. I love playing frisbee, fetch, tug of war, and will even chase your dog if they love keep away like mine. I will keep them hydrated, let them take a dip in water, and practice good walking habits with approved snacks.
