John did a wonderful job caring for our dogs while we were away. He sent several updates and even photos. My expectations were exceeded and we would definitely use him again.

John was amazing! I had a unique situation where I need much more time than your average check-in visit and he easily adapted to my request. He left detailed notes on how the visit went and took great pictures! I wouldn't hesitate to have him watch my pup again!

We've only had John come a few times, but are already very happy with him. He tires our puppy out so she's not crazy wild when we get home and shows us pics of her painting and tired out.

Lifetime of pet care!

I have taken care of family dogs since I was 8 years old, that amounts to over 45 years experience. This includes caring for puppies and elderly dogs in weak health. My career is in social work and youth counseling. I have a Master's Degree in Counselor Education. (diploma and resume available upon request) I mention this because I know you want to hire someone you can trust with your dog AND your home. All ...

What John would like to know about your dog

I only need to know, what you want / need to tell me. Your dog's individual likes or dislikes, when / how often to go out, is he/she taking any medications, does he / she like to be brushed? If we go outside off your property how does he/she behave with other dogs? I have lived with medium to large dogs during my life, but enjoy them all.
