There’s nothing more difficult than an unexpected, last minute trip, especially when you’re new to a city. Enter Jim... he made sure our pets and our home were well taken care of. I am impressed with the level of detail and attention he goes to in order to make sure the dogs and our home was ready for us upon our return. He is phenomenal!

Experienced Sitter 4 Furry Families

I COVER ALL of ABQ and 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 early-1980s, in whatever city and state my career took me. This includes taking care of literally tens of thousands of dogs & cats ...

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.
