John is a lifesaver! Our doggie care fell through at the last minute when we were already out of town, and John was super flexible about helping watch our eskie Emma with same-day notice, having not met her before, on a long weekend no less! He was particularly careful about introducing her to another dog staying with him to make sure both dogs were comfortable, and everything went smoothly. We loved receiving photos and videos ...

Your Dog + Me = Good Times!

Hi! My name's John and I'm a huge dog lover and have been my entire life. I have 25 years of dog caring experience that came from raising a family of Chihuahuas and my late beloved dog-son Puggle, Rocky. Living with friends growing up, I have also cared for larger breeds such as Blue Nosed Pit Bulls and hyper breeds such as Border Collies. I'm also no stranger to catering to more independent breeds like ...

What John would like to know about your dog

medical conditions, medications, allergies, anything important! No breed preferences but if you prefer your dog to be around certain sizes (small dogs with small dogs, etc) then I can definitely accommodate you there if I am sitting more than one dog.

When John watches your pet

If we are scheduled for a regular play date or you are boarding your dog with me, I can take your dog to the nearest dog park to play. It is important that all dogs do practice social skills in a live public setting to get them accustomed to other humans as well. However, since dog parks are where many incidents or accidents happen, it is important that I mention I will NOT be going to the dog park with your dog unless you are a repeat client hence your dog and I have built a bond beforehand and they've been with you before. Or we can just hang out at the house playing with their favorite toys if that's what you prefer, that's what the backyards for! Some people don't want their dogs at the dog park so it is definitely up to you, just let me know!
