Jim the the absolute best you could ever hope for and want in a pet sitter. He genuinely loved and cared for my little girl when I was away on business. He was very communicative and thoughtful with photos and text updates throughout my trip. My little one is quite high maintenance and Jim went above and beyond by brushing her out daily and even taking her to the groomers right before I arrived home ...

I have known James for over ten years. His care and treatment of my dogs has been an invaluable service to me many times. I highly recommend him and if my dogs could speak they would too!
Thank you James!

Dog, Cat and lint brush friendly..

A native Californian raised in Venice. I was brought up in a "dog house" . We never had anything less than 3 dogs and 3 cats as I was growing up. I have raised great "mutts" and pure breeds alike.

I am currently living in a place ...

What Jim would like to know about your dog

No preferences as far as breed goes. High strung dogs (in my experience) just need a chance to get acclimated to a new person. In these cases, I prefer to meet the pooch first and see if we are a good fit. Generally it works out.

When Jim watches your pet

Anything that the dog requires-I love to hike in my local mountains, but a walk around the neighborhood is just as great for the little dogs. Some just need a person to snuggle up to, which is always a bonus!
