Ian was the first choice I had when I needed a dog sitter when I went on vacation. My dogs looked almost as happy as they are when I’m home! I would trust him to watch them any time I left home!

I've Never Met a Dog I Didn't Like!

I recently transplanted here to Olympia from Des Moines, Iowa, to attend school at The Evergreen State College, where I'll be studying Environmental Studies. All my childhood dogs had to stay back home with my family and I can't have one of my own in my new apartment, so I'd love to put some of that puppy-love in with your dogs!

Growing up, I've had everything from great big behemoths like Rottweilers and Mastiff-mixes, to ...

What Ian would like to know about your dog

You know your dog better than anyone else, so if there's something you think I need to know about your dog, definitely mention it! If there are certain ways your dogs like to be pet, favorite treats she has, certain behaviors you'd like me to encourage or discourage, allergies to anything, please let me know. I am willing to work with reactive dogs as long as I am warned about the reactivity in advance.

And do I have breed preferences? I sure do! I prefer all breeds!

Additional Skills
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

Olympia is a beautiful city with lovely weather, and I feel like every day that I'm here I discover something new about it. With your dog by my side, we'll explore all over this city's sidewalks and it's beautiful parks. A little outside of your dogs comfort zone? No problem, your backyard or living room will do just fine. I also have a small animal stroller for older dogs who can't walk as far because of their joints. It fits dogs around 20-25 lbs and under.

I can throw a tennis ball for hours, and my petting skills are top-notch. I also have a few tricks up my sleeve to keep smart, high-energy dogs busy and out of trouble.
