Jim is the very best! My spouse was out of town and I had to unexpectedly put one of my dogs down. It wasn’t a day Jim was schedualed for a drop in. When I texted him with the bad news, he immediately offered to come and be with me during that difficult time or do anything else I might need. He also sent a sympathy card in the mail later which was much ...

What can I say? Jim is the best pet sitter ever! Everyone knows that cats are finicky - she is, but she does love Jim and cuddles and purrs when he comes to visit her while we are out of town. Some days, it takes her a while to come out of her hiding place, but when she does, she goes to his lap before she eats. That is the proof of her love for Jim ...

I’ve been told this review is long awaited. The licious family has returned to review Jim again. You should see Lick-A-Licious’s (AKA Sammy) reaction when Jim arrives to our door, he is always the first to run into Jim’s arms. Fetch-A-Licious (AKA Sadie) is a close second to greet Jim upon arrival, she adores going for walks and has no patience for small talk before bolting out the door. Social-Licious (AKA Brice ...

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.
