I will always give the best care!

Hello, my name is James Kennedy and I am a San Diego local who is a huge dog lover! I have loved dogs and other animals for as long as I can remember, and I always do what I can such as providing my best care to them to ensure their lives are as happy as possible. I am very passionate about caring for animals and every day I will work hard and stay on ...

What James would like to know about your dog

For the most part I work very well with all dogs regardless of size, but there are a few preferences I have. Breed wise it could be anything from a chihuahua to a Grate Dane, however things like how they do on walks are important. For example, if your dog is known for lashing out at other dogs while on walks I need to know about that so I can keep a safe distance while still getting exercise for your dog. Another important thing to know is if your dog has any anger/anxiety issues, for example separation anxiety or aggression towards other dogs or new people. I have experience with all these things, I just need confirmation about their behavior from owners before starting a new job.

When James watches your pet

I am willing to take the dogs on walks around whichever area their owners live in, but one example of a place I like to take dogs on walks is around Point Loma and Dusty Rhodes Park.
Activities include dog parks, walks, dog beach, rides in the car, and anything else the owner may recommend!
