Just picked my pup up from Jacob's yesterday after leaving her with him for almost a week. I was freaking out as I always do when I leave her, but everything went great! Jacob kindly sent me pics and detailed updates every single day, which is HUGE for me. I could see she was happy and healthy, which really allowed me to relax and enjoy my trip. Will definitely be using Jacob's services in the ...

What Jacob would like to know about your dog

I love all dogs, while I have worked with the Siberian Husky rescue and the Shar Pei rescues closest as a child I have also worked with multiple humane/anti cruilty societies through youth and adulthood and come with a genuine love for all furry friends.
I do like to know a dogs breed/mix before meeting because while I do not beleave in pre-judging a dog based on their breed. I do agknowlege that as humans we have selectively breed dogs for many reasons, and so knowing about a dogs genetic background influences how I aproach issues you may be experiencing with your pup.
I love to hear a pup back story, where you got them, why you fell in love with them, and how ya'll have adjusted to Co-habitating. This first and for most helps me to understand formative experience for your pup witch will influence how I interact with them, but will also draw my attention to issues thst may come up while your pup is adjusting to being in my space and how to best navigate that.
I ofcourse want too know if your dog has any special needs as far as care or anxiety go, and if they have any dietary restictions as I often find food driven possitive reinforcement is a powerful tool in becoming besties with otherwise skittish pups.

When Jacob watches your pet

My housemates and I love to play with the dogs, weither it's an inside game of tug-o-war or fetch in our yard games abound. I do have a sizable yard available to us, and so both yard time and walks! when weather permits I love to take pups down to the nearby forest preserve for some adventures and plenty of new sniffs!
