John was amazing! My Memphis had a great stay, she was happy, well adjusted and was walked daily. John sent me photos and text updates while I was out of the country. I would definitely recommend John and I would love to have him keep her again.

John was 100% professional, easy to communicate with, and took great care of my dog. I will definitely be a repeat customer when we leave town again! Thank you John!

Another great "Stay" experience with John. I always try to plan ahead. Before booking a trip, I check to see if John is available to keep Teddy. If he isn't available, we probably won't go. We rest easier when Teddy is being cated for by John.

We All Need Love--Pets Too!

Dog owners will love that I'm warm, genuine and compassionate--to dogs, and to everyone else. I go out of my way to make sure that all creatures (human and otherwise) in my vicinity are looked after, either by providing care or connecting them to vital resources. For example, I care for an elderly neighbor across the street from my home, because it's the right thing to do. Others appreciate my kindness, generosity, and wacky sense ...

What John would like to know about your dog

The more information you provide, the more subtle the cues I’ll be able to pick up on when I’m spending one-on-one time with your dog. What hours does your family keep? What are your dog’s likes and dislikes? What does he react to in positive or negative ways? I want to maximize the fun we have together; my first priorities, though, will always be safety, comfort, and your peace of mind. I’m happy to work with dogs of any breed, any size, and any temperament. All are welcome!

When John watches your pet

We’ll go for long walks on the beach, have candle-lit dinners, and gaze longingly into each other’s eyes … oh, wait, wrong profile. Really, we’ll spend much of the weekend outside enjoying nature. We’ll play all his favorite games, go for walks, and get lots of cuddles. I’ll base our day-to-day plans on your regular schedule, to keep him happy and comfortable with me and to minimize any disruption from his routine. He might be able to accompany me on runs, and either way, we’ll get lots of exercise!
