For many years John has lived with cats and dogs. He has enjoyed caring and playing with sheperds and Labs. I've seen him spend several hours at a time in beach and park environments. I've seen the dogs respond to his special gentle and fun-loving attention. I'm sure you will find him a perfect fit.

John is a sweetheart. He is a kind and compassionate person who loved caring for my sweet Ernie (my dog-child yellow lab.) We trusted John completely with Ernie. We knew that if it was hot out the Ernie would have water. If Ernie was feeling lonely that John would spoil him with those belly scratches. Always professional. Always kind. Always a great caretaker of our four legged love.

When John watches your pet

Anywhere the owner of the dog requests. I like to be outside and I walk everyday. During the week I usually visit Prospect Park, Coney Island, and sometimes the Dumbo area. I like to explore the city, which I feel is happening less and less with residents these days. I like to be outside and I love dogs and they love me.
