Jacob made our 1st house/dog-sitter experience a breeze. He sent photos and video of our pup. He followed our directions, including giving dog medicine and locking up our home. He’s very responsible and trustworthy. Our dog cuddled up to him. Thumbs up!

Jacob did a fantastic job! He took care of both our dog and cat while we were on vacation and I would definitely trust him to do so again. He sent cheerful, informative updates twice per day with fun photos or videos. He gave us great peace of mind and I would certainly hire him again without any hesitation.

Dog's best friend

Dogs love me and I love them right back! My dog, Moxie, is my partner in crime; we have loads of fun together. Friends have also called me a dog whisperer, haha. Heck, at the dog park, dogs that "don't like strangers/new people" usually end up liking me.
Your dog will be in great hands! My dog, Moxie, is a Springer Spaniel with relatively high maintenance needs too, so I'm no stranger to special ...

What Jacob would like to know about your dog

I definitely require a formal introduction. I want to make sure they see that you trust me and thus that they too can trust me when I am sitting. I would also of course need to know about normal schedules/regimens (feeding, walking, etc.) as well as any special care instructions/health concerns, just the stuff one might expect.

When Jacob watches your pet

I love to go hiking to new places all the time, so if your dog requires variety as well as rigor in their daily walks/hikes, I'm your guy! And of course, not all dogs require that much exercise, and I am perfectly content simply walking your dog around the block if that's all they need/want. I'm also game for some fetch if they are!
