Jim was very thorough and attentive. He performed drop-in visits for my cat—taking care to learn about my cat’s needs in advance and then to document completion of his visits each day. Jim’s expertise, experience, and commitment to providing excellent care were evident. He clearly communicated all policies and processes, and he was easy to reach. Jim offered excellent care for my cat—and peace of mind for me.

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.
