Ian was incredible with my pup, Petey, and also with me, the nervous mama. He is seasoned and knowledgable in caring for and handling dogs and on top of that, he is warm and oozes loving kindness.

Ian is the BEST! I'm a helicopter parent of a 1 year old lab mix and Ian took care of our baby for 10 days while we were away. We received photos and videos EVERY DAY, lol!!

Awesome! Ian is an excellent Rover. We'd be thrilled to have him watch our dogs again and definitely highly recommend him to others.

Please, no doggies who are constant pullers on the leash. :)

I was raised with a menagerie of animals, from fish in the pond and aquariums to frogs, gerbils, guinea pigs, rabbits, cats and of course, dogs. I've also helped former roommates take care of their two dogs, both during the two years they lived here and when I ...

What Ian would like to know about your dog

I would just like to know that they are house-trained, get along well with other dogs (since I have one) and won't destroy the place. :)

When Ian watches your pet

Lots of play in the house. It is a large place.

I have long yard leashes for when I sit outside with them in the yard.

Walks around the neighbourhood and/or to two small parks we have nearby.

Dogs receive filtered water (not even my plants get LA tap water) and high-quality, US-made treats.
