James has taken my dogs for for dog walks and has sat with them for drop ins. He is very attentive and professional. I have a shy pittie mix who is uneasy around men, but he adored James from the very first meeting! I’m glad to have found someone I can trust to take great care of my pups when I’m not available.

Thank you for choosing me to care for Opal and Murphy! I feel honored that your shy guy was full ...

James is a wonderful animal care-giver and pet parent. He and I have worked together boarding dogs and pet sitting for over 7 years. James provides individual care and attention for each pet, making sure everyone is safe and happy, and leaves your home clean.

I have known James and his wife Cait for many years. On several occasions I had need for my two rescue hounds to be cared for while I was away. I knew them to be in good hands, and they were well taken care of, with no worries. (Cait's background as a highly trusted Vet Tech is a huge plus, in my opinion!)
I recommend them highly.

Your best friend's new friend!

With seven years of pet sitting experience ranging from a bounding four-month-old Great Dane (just growing into her paws & ears!) to an elderly Pug who needed a little extra help with dinner, I have the experience you need to be confident that your dog is having the best day while you're away. Since moving to Oregon in July, my trio of herding dogs have been exploring the creeks and rivers of our beautiful Willamette ...

What James would like to know about your dog

What are your dog's favorite activities, and what is a typical day like for them at home? Do they have any special needs? I am happy to care for breeds of all sizes, lap dogs, and bed hogs, I especially love large breed dogs and silly dogs!

When James watches your pet

If your furry companion prefers a short walk around the neighborhood with extra time for snuggles and belly rubs, or if they need a good run to get out some energy while you work during the day, your dogs activities are tailored for their health and enjoyment!

For dogs with a bit of a wild side, I also offer longer hikes, or "dog adventures" at a few local state parks, ideal for high energy dogs that like to get dirty! Your pup will have their best day exploring the trails, or even splashing in a nearby creek where we always stay on leash for safety. I have doggy life vests in multiple sizes to keep your doggy paddling safely on their big day out, or we may play fetch in an off leash dog park.

Would your dog enjoy a buddy? I can bring one of my dogs along on our adventure!
