Jim was once again was wonderful with our pups! We received multiple updates each day and were able to relax on our vacation knowing that our furbabies were well taken care of. He was also able to accommodate a last minute itinerary change! The house was spotless when we got home, which is always a huge relief after a vacation. We have finally found a sitter that we can trust with both our home and ...

Jim G. has been great with our two boxers. We recently went through a change up in the household and needed someone to come by and walk the dogs. Jim is very knowledgeable, comes on time and spends a good amount of time with the dogs each day. Most importantly, Zeke and Luna have been very happy with this arrangement!

We had the pleasure of Jim watching our dogs while we went on vacation for 5 days. Jim took incredible care of both our babies and our home while we were gone. We received daily updates with pictures of the pups and know that they received the best care and nonstop attention. Leaving the pups is always hard, but it makes it much easier with a sitter like Jim. He is definitely our sitter 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.
