James would be a great buddy & caregiver for any dog. He has a way with them that lets them know they are safe & can be comfortable around him. I don't think he has spent a day in his life without a dog---(he has two characters currently) His "beach van" is dog friendly-& Cardiff is a favorite beach walk he's taking his two.

About James

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

Animal Loving Retired Lifeguard

I can not imagine spending a day in my life without a dog or two.
Our current houseful of pets includes 2 dogs, 2 cats, 3 horses & a few fish. Each spoiled in their own way.
I am retired, responsible & genuinely love animals.
For that reason I am generally available to spend quality time with your pup(s).
My wife was a veterinary nurse so we always have that experience to lean on ...

What James would like to know about your dog

Learning about a dog's fears & pleasures is important. What excites it, what calms it---how it best receives praise, petting & treats. Does it like other animals-is it prone to aggression or submission---How is it around children, vehicles? etc. Does it have any ailments or physical limitations that I should be aware of. Is it hard of hearing, on a special diet etc. Every character detail is important in gaining a dogs trust & friendship.

When James watches your pet

Depending on where each dog lives & the lifestyle it is accustomed to, I am happiest walking on trails or sidewalks away from busy streets. A good time can be had playing catch with Frisbees, balls or sticks, swimming @ the lake or beach with dogs that enjoy that kind of thing. Otherwise a gentle walk for the senior or less active pet is a nice way to spend outdoors in the fresh air.
