John is a very calm, patient, and kind individual. I have no doubt that he would make a great dog-sitter because of his personality. I would certainly recommend him to care for your pet!

I have known John for many years and one of the first things I learned about him was that he is an animal lover. Although his best friend was his own hound dog, John always greeted my furr friends with great enthusiasm. He is a person that I go to for advise for my animals. He has good common sense and genuine love and concern for all creatures.

John is the most caring, friendly dog walker I have ever known. He truly loves dogs, and is never too shy to get smothered in "doggy kisses"!

Let's go for a walk or run!

I am a true dog lover. Each one I had has slept at the bottom of my bed. I embrace larger or excitable dogs. Growing up on a farm I have had Basset hounds, Beagles, German shepherds, bulldogs and German shorthaired pointers. I have never met a bad dog! Most recently I have sold my company and would like to get out more. In my personal life, my son is in school, my wife works ...

What John would like to know about your dog

I prefer medium to larger dogs simply because I have more experience with them (basset to bulldog & up). If I had to say a preference, I love a scent dog or a sporting dog. Things I would like to know would be special practices you use with your dog, I would not like to break habits you have in place or certain rituals/behaviors. Does your dog bite? Are their special needs?
