John has taken care of our two girls for a little over two years. We have been so grateful for John and his care for our dogs. He is extremely flexible and makes sure our frequent last minute requests for walks and house sitting happen without a hitch. Our lives have been made so so much easier by having John watch our dogs and have been away for up to two weeks without a worry. ...

John was fantastic! Our baby was happy and healthy when we returned! John updated us almost daily with pictures and notes. We were able to relax and enjoy our vacation knowing that she was in good, loving hands.

Loving Care When You're Not There.✨

Hi, I'm Johnny. I'm proud to offer safe, fun, and quality pet care services for your family while you are away from home. I truly enjoy working with all sorts of animals and would be happy to help take care your dog, cat, domestic pets and even exotics while you are away from home.

When it comes to canines, I enjoy caring for multi-dog as well as mixed animal households. I'm caring, structured and have ...

What John would like to know about your dog

Timing is a big factor for me as I work for a catsitting company in the mornings, occasionally walk dogs in the afternoon and also drive for lyft for about 10 hours a week. While I can rearrange my schedule with advance notice, I’m not the best match for animals that need to be checked-on/pottied every four hours or less without additional compensation. I can check-in every 6-8 hours easily.

I'd like to set up a meet and greet and chat about what your pet’s needs are. I also may ask for an initial phone call to ask some basic questions that let me know if we’re all a good fit.

I’d like to know the name, breed, age of your pup and if there's any behaviors or special needs that I'll be working with. I will also need to know if your dog is crate trained/where your pet sleeps and what kind of potty/exercise/feeding regiment I will be adapting to while I care for your furry friend.

I am open to all breeds - they're all special in their own way! How could I not love them all? I deeply value rescues and have a huge soft spot for animals with behavioral problems as well as seniors and animals with special needs.

Lastly, I will need to know ahead of time if the owner is using any kind of a coupon or discounted code as that affects the amount that I may earn from Rover, thank you.

When John watches your pet

I've lived in Oakland since 2007 and love the Bay Area! I enjoy walking dogs in their own neighborhood and getting some good, wholesome exercise. I'm happy to take your pup to a nearby dog park to play and can even offer up to two hour walks (at an extra cost through Rover) for those that have lots of energy!

Since January 2019, I have been driving for Lyft and now have access to a regular vehicle. I am a licensed driver with an excellent driving record. I am comfortable transporting pets for vet appointments and for any emergencies, of which I have had none to date. I am pet CPR certified.
