Love Jacob. We've used him to house and dog sit for us for the last 4 years. I think our Corgi likes him better than us..lol. Very responsible and cares for our pup just like she's a member of his family. We couldn't ask for anyone better! Jacob has always bent of backward to help us even last minute.
I would Highly Recommend him.

About Jacob

  • Verified Background Check

I'm the Dog Whisperer 2.0.

My whole life we've had dogs in our homes. I've grown up taking care of them and playing with them. I'm a full time college student, with no other time commitments, so I come straight home after class and take care of our dogs while my parents are still at work. I've house sat for four different families, taking care of dogs ranging in breeds from Chihuahuas to German Shepherds to Shar Peis. I walk ...

What Jacob would like to know about your dog

Before I accept any jobs I need to know how many dogs I will be caring for, how long (even if this is only an estimate), and what breeds each of the dogs are. Otherwise I am rather flexible in my preferences.

When Jacob watches your pet

I am good about ensuring dogs who already have set schedules are able to keep to them. And when there is more freedom for me to decide what to do with a dog, I like to provide a spread of activities, indoor or outdoor play, walks, or even just quiet sitting time for some of the more nervous dogs.
