When I started my new job I would spend some days out of town a month. Jacob was the best choice for minding my dog. I felt very secure while I was away. My dog was well fed and well taken care of. I absolutely recommend choosing Jacob.

Jacob has been taking care of my dogs during my busy traveling schedule for awhile now and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve never had to worry about a thing—I get regular texts and emails with photos, and they really seem to love my dogs as if they were their own. It’s not ideal to leave them so frequently, but the peace of mind from having Jacob as a caregiver can’t be beat!

Jacob took excellent care of our 1 year old terrier-chihuahua mix pup. We received text updates in a timely manner. The details and photos Jacob sent made us feel our pup was in good hands. I highly recommend Jacob's services!

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.
