Perfect Visit. Dropping my dog off with Jacob allowed me to enjoy my vacation without having to worry about her care.
When I picked her up after the trip, she came over excited to see me and then returned to sit by his side. Where she normally is scratching at the truck door to leave, she didn't mind hanging out.

When Jacob watches your pet

We will go on walks, runs, or hikes (whichever you prefer) around my neighboorhood and in a small valley right by my house. I will play with them outside, we have a bunch of toys from our dog who recently passed away (sorry about the downer). I can pretty much do whatever you want to keep your dog happy.
