Jim is wonderful with pets and I would trust him to care for mine in a heartbeat. I have noticed our pets immediately take a liking to him and I imagine it is the same with any animal. He is trustworthy, dependable and responsible.

Dogs enjoy the time as much as I do

Growing up, my best friend's name was King. He was a big, friendly and energetic German Shepherd, Collie, St. Bernard mix. I loved him and miss him every day. Following work in many professional venues, I’ve found joy and satisfaction reconnecting with my love of animals.

For much of my life I've taken care of friend’s pets, but have only started caring for them professionally in the last 6 months.

Responsible, patient and ...

What Jim would like to know about your dog

Much of the joy of working with various animals is getting to know them, discovering their personalities as we get to know each other. However, should a dog find certain other animals or people intimidating, it is most helpful to know this along with any tendencies to aggression or nervousness. I also welcome information on any changes in the dog’s habits or health needs that may be aided by my time with them. Though in the past I’d always had an affinity for larger dogs, this work has bolstered my affection for smaller dogs as well.

Senior Dog Experience

Whenever possible, we'll venture to a park or a dog-run if the socialization is agreeable for your pet. I like to afford them the option of a good run if they’re spry, or a healthy, well-paced walk if they’re older or less fit. I’ve also been known to pick your dog up if they’re tuckered out from the romp. In addition to well-heeded advice or requests, I’ve a good instinct for a dog’s capabilities and needs and greatly enjoy the time spent. I set an alarm to be sure we’re home on time!
