We liked John-Michael at the meet n greet but got off to a bad start after his first visit, the day of our long flight. Since we would be gone for 10 days and did not know JM well, we were fairly anxious. I didn’t hear from him at the time his first check in was supposed to start and long story short, we asked our regular sitter to stop by for a check ...

John-Michale is a super sweet and loving person and I can always count on him when I need him. His compassion and love for his own dog is so heartwarming and makes me smile. I trust him with my own animals no doubt.

John-Michael is dear and wonderful. He has a love for animals of all types. He is kind, understanding and patient with both people and pets. He has helped me with several pets... Jack jack, Red, and others. He is considerate of my time and resources. He is as discrete as is called for, remaining friendly with those who want to know more than they need to know.
Trustworthy, kind, reliable. Would use again.

I am a full-time student at Trident University International, but during the day I am a substitute teacher, so I usually am at work at 8:00 AM and get home around 12:00 PM on half days and 3:30 PM on full days.

I am a dog owner myself, and my 4-year-old Shitzu-Yorkie, Mongo ...

What John-Michael would like to know about your dog

I love all types/breeds but I have a fondness for big dogs, especially pit bulls! I also really like Boxers, German Shepherds and pretty much any dog that is really a giant baby.

1) Is your dog housetrained?
2) Is your dog socialized (do they have experience playing nice with other dogs?)
3) Are your dogs allowed on beds or furniture?

When John-Michael watches your pet

I love going to local parks because I’m an active Pokémon Go player, so chances are I will take your dog to whichever dog-friendly park is nearest by. I also enjoy checking out local spots such as downtown areas, provided they are also dog-friendly! Or if your dog is more of a homebody, I don’t mind relaxing on the couch with them and enjoying quiet time. I strongly believe that a sitter/walker should match the energy and tempo of the home they enter, and will do my best to ensure your dog’s stay is as comfortable as possible!
