This was my second or third time with Toby and as expected it was great! My dogs love him and he is always available and sends many photo updates. Toby is my go-to pup sitter and I highly recommend him.

Toby was great! I'd definitely request his services again in the future. My dogs looked so happy and comfortable with him. Toby was very relaxed and friendly. I was a little nervous about leaving my dogs but he made sure I knew they were okay. Toby constantly sent me pictures of the dogs and communicated with me when possible. I am very happy with his service.

About John

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

Your pets new best friend!

I always grew up with happy, social dogs and learned how to properly walk/train and also the basics of care! Plus I just plain love dogs (and cats! I have a bunny and a little cat of my own). I grew up on farms in Lousiana Cajun country and western NY; and so was exposed to a various kinds of animals during those times.

I absolutely love small animals and have a special place ...

What John would like to know about your dog

Before sitting a dog; I definitely want a detailed run through of basic daily routine (food, bathroom schedule, etc). My goal is to keep them as close to the routine with you as possible. I also need to know socialization level (able to walk w/other dogs, dog park, etc) and if there has ever been any aggression issues. Additionally, also vet information and one person you know in town I can get a hold of in case there is some sort of emergency and I cannot reach you.

When John watches your pet

When staying/walking with me, we will probably stay close to the First Hill/Capital Hill area, but I'm flexible with location. While offering standard walking both solo and in packs, I'm not opposed to a sunny afternoon at the dog park with your little one if they're socialized at that level.
