Our dogs absolutely love Ian. When he shows up at the house we have no choice but to consider him family. The dogs have no problem with us leaving when he is there and so we have no concerns leaving our home. He carries with him a calm and warm demeanor validated by trust. We have had him watching our home and dogs for years and couldn't be happier.

Ian has watched Juneau, my 9 year old pit mix, on many occasions. Ian played with Juneau, took her on lengthy walks, and made sure that she was always comfortable and happy.
Ian has always been considerate of my property when watching my house, and always kept my house clean.
Ian is a great guy and is my preferred sitter for my beautiful pet.

I recommend Ian with the highest regards. He has helped take care of my bluetick coonhound on and off over the past few years, and has always treated my pup as if she were his own! Ian is playfully attentive and active with her, dependable with her daily medication and eating schedule, and has even surprised me with having bathed her a handful of times.

I'll gladly run with your dog!

Having grown up with dogs I've spent the better part of my 30 years caring and playing with these furry friends, whether my own or others, in some capacity. Recently, I have been the resident dog-sitter for multiple friends over the last 5 years upon my move to St. George from Southern California. Most of these dogs have been in the medium to medium/large build (Labs, Golden Retrievers, German/Australian Shepherds, Huskies and Hounds ...

What Ian would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. I would appreciate knowing how much exercise each dog prefers, how they get along with other dogs as well any quirks they may have about eating their food, being on a leash, etc.

When Ian watches your pet

I enjoy going to Chuckawalla, Cove Trail head and a nearby climbing area called Moes Valley (SW end of Dixie Drive near Green Valley Gap) for runs or walks. I also will bring dogs who enjoy fetch to any of the nearby parks to toss frisbees or tennis balls while I get some stretching in. At home I will lightly rough-house with dogs who enjoy the playfulness of it or just relax on the ground with them while watching a movie, reading or doing homework. Once I have developed exceptional trust/rapport with the dogs I care for and know that they will listen to me when I make a request (which has taken anywhere from a few weeks to a few months) I feel comfortable with them off leash during our runs/walks if their owners feel comfortable with this and we're in an appropriate space to do so.
