John and his family were wonderful. Sadie was very comfortable in their home and was taken very good care of. She got along with john’s dog Murphy quite well. Very positive experience for all.

We are absolutely thrilled to have met John and Carol and highly recommend them as your next doggy-sitter!
We were going on our honeymoon and needed someone to take care of our 4yr old border collie, Ellington. Being a border collie, she has a lot of energy and needs extra stimulation and playtime.

John and his family have made Newton truly feel at home. They watch him once a week for daycare and even an extended stay over Thanksgiving weekend. Newton has come home with excellent behavior and we have some implemented some of Johns practices at home to continue the good habits. Aside from the excellent puppy care, they always stay in touch so we know how much fun he has while we’re at work. It ...

What John would like to know about your dog

I would like to ask the owner as to what the dog likes or dislikes and any special requirements of the dogs. Times for eating, and or snacks. Does your pet walk well on a leash or prefer to be supervised in our fenced in backyard. What would make your dog feel right at home in my house.

When John watches your pet

I love taking the dogs on walks and playing with them with toys or if a dog is older making sure that its needs are provided for and they are allowed to rest and get age appropriate amount of activity. I will make sure that your dog is treated the same manner as he/she he would be in your home. Our best friends deserve the royal treatment
