Jacob was amazing! It was the first time my husband and I were away from our two dogs (pit mix and boxer mix) at the same time and we were very nervous. Jacob instantly put our fears at rest during the meet and greet and continued to do that during the stay. He provided pictures, videos, and detailed updates twice a day and knew how to handle our high energy boxer mix, Jude. Both our ...

Jacob was great with our dog Peyton. He is extremely knowledgable of dogs and that made me very comfortable trusting him with taking care of our girl. He provided us with one or two updates daily along with photos which kept us at ease while we were away. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

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.
