One of the best dog sitters!!! Jake is super great with dogs and provides updates and great photos. My golden retriever needs a lot of exercise and he made sure she got enough walks and mental stimulation!

Jacob is great!!! Prompt responses, sent pictures while I was away so I could check up on my dog and worked with her through some of her puppy habits. I’ll use him again in the future!!

I knew when we had our meet and greet that Jacob would be excellent. He took care of my dogs better than I can (2 walks a day! Meals exactly 12 hours apart!). They were even better behaved than when I left.
I know they missed us, but I think they also miss Jacob now.
And the house was immaculate when we got home.
Jacob is very professional, extremely responsible and conscientious, and our dogs ...

I'm Your Dog's Second Best Friend

I love that dogs are unfailingly loving and loyal. They are empathetic and intuitive and have a way of brightening your day no matter what's going on. Best of all, they are always happy to see you -- even if you've only been gone a minute.
I grew up in a home that provided doggy foster care and I've cared for nearly every breed and have been around every type of personality over the years. I've ...

What Jacob would like to know about your dog

I prefer to meet on neutral ground so that everyone feels comfortable. I’m also happy to visit you and your pup at your home or you can come to mine. Outside of your dog’s daily routine, I like to know if that have any special needs, preferences or behavioral issues so we can plan how to constructively approach the situation. I've had experience with skittish and aggressive dogs, emergencies and even puppy birth, so I can handle just about any situation.

When Jacob watches your pet

The best thing about working from home is that it allows me a flexible schedule so I have plenty of time to spend with my furry friends. I typically like to hit your dog’s favorite spots. There’s not only a spacious yard at my home where we can play or lounge in the shade, but there are plenty of places to walk around Calabasas and Topanga State Park is just down the road, which is the perfect place for a hike. We can also hit the beach, another one of my favorite places to hang out. I also love relaxing at dog-friendly cafes or we could get in some social time at the local dog park. If we need to tend to other matters, like the vet or a grooming appointment, that’s also not a problem.
