It was a pleasure to meet John! I finally bit the bullet and set up a time to have him come watch Mia.
I was very nervous about having someone I never met watch Mia and also be in my home! But he is a pleasure to work with! He left a detailed note about his stay with her (he has a great sense of humor) and she was not nervous or scared when we ...

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.

When John watches your pet

My goal is for your dog to feel like I am a friend of the family. I will take your instruction to do activities your dog enjoys. I would walk or transport your dog to places he/she is familiar with. Whether they like to fetch or just to have a companion to sit with is all good. "To play tug or not to play tug," is always the owners choice. If you are new to Rover and need an overnight sitter, ask me for my discount code for $20 off!!!
