Our dog's stay with John was great! John made the whole experience so easy for us. He made himself available for convenient drop off and pickup times and our dogs came home happy and healthy. Thanks John. We would recommend you as a sitter for sure!

John and I did a meet and greet beforehand. I felt very comfortable with him watching my dog for the weekend. He has two dogs about his size that he could play with and knowing that John is professional trainer, I knew taking him there he wouldn't get into much trouble. I plan to use his services in the future.

Marine Corps K9 Handler & Petshotel

Former Marine Corps K9 Handler and Petshotel manager at your service! I have extensive experience with animals, including first aid and health care, grooming, training, and socialization. It's my goal to ensure your pet feels just as comfortable in your absence as they do when you're here! We live in a 2 bed apartment, so we'll be walking on leash for potty walks, or jogging if you approve! I have two dogs of my own ...

What John would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences, although I do love small and big dogs equally. I used to manage a petshotel, and one of my favorite things about it was all the different types of dogs we would see that I never would have gotten the chance to see. Frenchies, shetlands, berners, etc etc etc... too many to name!

Here's where we'll take our walks
We live in the Greenlake area. I run with my dog almost every day, it's a quieter neighborhood that has excellent places to run and walk. We are also within walking distance of Carkeek Park.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Our dogs sleep in the house. There are dog houses out back if you don't care where they sleep, but most likely they will sleep inside.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work from home as a Dog trainer. I specialize in service dogs, and so most of the day I'm home with my dogs. With this new yard (we just moved), there may be times when they are out in the kennel run, but other than that we're pretty hadns on with the animals in our house.
