Left our two dogs (a pit mix & shepherd mix) in Jake's care when we went out of state for 4 days. One can be a little wary of new people. The other is super high energy. In other words, they're not always the easiest pair. Jake immediately put us at ease wit his knowledge and understanding of large-breed dogs. We received daily updates on their well-being; and upon our return, both pups were happy ...

Jake was so helpful and responsible with my older dog and giant puppy! He responded quickly and kept me up to speed on how they were doing when we were gone. I felt great knowing he was with them!

Jake: Dog Care Extraordinaire

I have had dogs all my life growing up until I moved to California. Growing up we had Doberman Pinschers, an Australian Shepard, and even a Golden Retriever. My grandfather was an obedience judge for the American Kennel Club and taught my father and myself how to train dogs. I am especially patient and adept at communicating with dogs with the majority of dogs I've come across taking a natural liking to me. Growing up ...

What Jake would like to know about your dog

I also pay close attention as you're not supposed to immediately let your dog drink or eat right after a physically demanding walk or run as it can result in stomach issues such as bloat which can be fatal if left untreated. This I know from personal experience. I have no breed preferences but I would greatly appreciate to know things such as whether your dog is aggressive towards people, other dogs, and training level. Also for my own peace of mind knowing whether or not a dog were neutered or spayed would be very helpful and of course any other health issues they may have.

When Jake watches your pet

Whenever I walked my own dogs I would like to take them out for a minimum of one hour at least twice a day. Since I had large breed dogs like Doberman Pinschers, their bodies required constant exercise throughout the day. Because of these things I would take a dog on a nice long but adequate walk depending on their physical capability and the owner's consent. I am a very observant dog owner as I had one who required daily medication and monitoring should health concerns arise and can thus give reliable attention to any dog's specific health requirements.
