Our puppy, Steve, loves Jacob days. Jacob has helped us twice a week and has handled everything that comes with that (puppy attack mode and chewing, namely) with humor and professionalism. Will definitely be asking Jacob to sit for us again in the future.

Jacob is awesome - our 2 Frenchies love him and are always excited to see him. He responds quickly to requests and makes sure to send a couple of photos with his updates. On one occasion, there was a technical mix up with the booking schedule - a glitch with Rover...totally not his fault - and as soon as I texted him, he ran over right away to check on our boys. We're very happy with Jacob ...

Don’t tell my dog I’m cheating!

Hi! I'm Jacob.

Dogs are hilarious animals and I love hanging out with them. I’m a college sophomore, currently maintaining a long-distance relationship with my very jealous dog back home. Please don't tell her, but I'm looking to make some new canine friends in the city while saving up some cash. Allow me to hang out with your pooch for a while!

I'm a student, and my schedule depends mostly on class times and ...

What Jacob would like to know about your dog

What makes your dog's personality unique? What are their quirks and mannerisms?

What is your dog used to in terms of exercise? Will they want to take breaks on a walk? I want to be sure I don’t overdo it, or leave them with too much leftover energy.

Finally, I’m not a small person, so larger dogs don’t necessarily intimidate me. That said, I’ve spent the most time around small breeds, so I would prefer bigger dogs to be on the more mild mannered end of the spectrum.

When Jacob watches your pet

I'd love to explore Lincoln Park with your dog. Personally, I love being near the lake, and walking around in any of the lake short parks would be a great time.
