Jim usually sits for our pups overnight, but we booked drops ins for a quick overnight trip. The dogs were happy to see him as always and received the same level of care that they're used to. And thank goodness we did book with Jim! A six hour drive turned into 12 due to weather and he dropped by for an extra dinner feeding since we weren't home yet. He even initiated the check in ...

It’s a perfect match between Jim and our puppies! Day or night, Jim is full of energy and enthusiasm for animals! Our pets literally jump for joy when they hear his voice, because they know they’ll have a blast and be well cared for! He’s like family to us, and our pups wouldn’t have it any other way!

Jim G.
I feel exactly the same way............thank you SO much!!!

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.
