As expected, we are very thrilled with Jim's services as he watched over our furry family while we were out of town. His reliability and willingness to go above and beyond for us certainly helps to make us feel very at ease with leaving. It was so reassuring to receive pictures of our boys each morning. We know they were happy and well cared for! Thanks Jim as always for taking such good care of ...

Experienced Sitter 4 Furry Families

I have been a Dog & Cat sitter and owner for well over three decades. This helped to pay for my college education, by taking care of wonderful animals ever since my early college days. In addition, I have volunteered in shelters and no-kill sanctuaries since the 1980s, in whatever city and state my career took me. This includes taking care of literally tens of thousands of dogs & cats over that time with great ...

What Jim would like to know about your dog

Positive reinforcement and attention, in addition to lots of love and playtime, makes for a great bond with any animal. I provide that and am completely breed agnostic. All dogs have the opportunity to be great and, with the right people and environment around them, most certainly will be.

When Jim watches your pet

Time I'll spend with your dog
We can discuss this at our initial meeting, depending of what you believe your dog's needs are when you're away. This differs by dog and I don't believe there is a specific time needed for each and every animal. My recommendation is an hour each stay, unless it's an overnight stay.

Extra house-sitting services
Whatever is needed to continue to make the house run smoothly while you're away --- watering plants, taking in mail, keeping the house neat and clean, etc.
