John was so wonderful with our dog Sable. He came every day and let her out. He played with her, gave her a treat and most of all love and attention. He always left a note on how the visit went . I would highly recommend him to anyone leaving their dog . I will definitely use him again.

John did a great job and highly recommend. Reliable, conscientious, and loved our daughter’s dog. John was also able to fit us in his schedule with minimal notice – just really a great overall experience and felt very comfortable and confident leaving our daughter’s dog in John’s care thanks John.

We just recently had John come and stay, for the second time, with our two huskies on overnight visits and everything went very well, same as the first time. We are very happy with how he cares for our dogs and we would highly recommend him for your pet sitting needs.

Thanks Christy, I love spending the night with your girls and look forward to hanging out with them tonight!

Lifetime of pet care!

*Please note I am only available for overnights and weekends.* 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 ...

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.
