James is a wonderful person. He is a very kind and caring individual that is great with dogs. Also, he’s a great dog dad who takes care of his pup great! Defiantly a good guy to hire.

James house sat my amputee dog for a four day weekend at my house, he is very ski-dish and dislikes most people. However, he and James took to each other like fish to water! He was punctual, polite, and professional. I would recommend him to anyone.

I was a little hesitant using Rover fir the first time because I never left my Tucker with a stranger before. I saw several cheaper options but I was hoping that you get what you paid for applied to pet care. Needless to say all my fears were alleivated. I returned to a happy pup who I can tell had a great time. I highly recommend using James

Here is my spiel, get ready, I tried to make it succinct!
I don't consider myself a "typical" pet sitter. I put in a lot of time and effort, and have had several dozen dogs come and go (with an overwhelming majority visiting multiple times) while thoroughly enjoying their time. I feed my dog either cooked: ground beef, steak, or chicken with each meal, and will happily do so with your baby if interested. I ...

What James would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if they have any dietary restrictions or medicines. Which vet you use in case of emergency, favorite toy or treat, where they prefer to be pet, which commands they respond to.

DIET RESTRICTIONS is most important. I want them to be able to eat and drink peacefully, if they cannot have certain food/treat please tell me.

If they are skittish or unfriendly towards new/other dogs, I would like to know. Even if it is only sometimes, this in no way affects me wanting to spend time with your dog, its just a precaution I may have to take so your pet and/or somebody else's doesn't get hurt.

I love them all, bring them to me. No prejudice against breeds, at all.

When James watches your pet

I will ask about their usual walks, or their extended less common routes. If they have tick prevention we are able to take more woodsy routes, if not I stay far and away.

Walks. Runs. Hikes. Cuddles. Playing with toys. Fetch. Sun bathing. Dog Parks. Massage.
Any and all, whatever you tell me will bring your pet the most happiness is what I will use as a base point.
