John was great with our dog. He adored her as she did him.
He was attentive to our dog's special needs.
We'd be happy to ask for his help again!

John was wonderful with my Edie during her stay! During our meet and greet, I could tell he's good with dogs and a good match with Edie. He sent me a cute photo of Edie and, above all, also went out of his way to arrange and do the pick-up of Edie from another sitter. Edie came back happy from her stay and I'd seek his help again whenever I need one. Highly recommended!!!
