John took very good care of our two dogs. He sent videos and photos, and was very easy to communicate with. We are extremely happy with the care and attention John gave. This was our first time using the service, will use again in the future.

John was a stellar care taker of our fur baby Emma. He was thorough in his attention to our instructions for her needs and updated us multiple times a day with pictures and messages of how she was doing while we were away. It really made our time away stress free knowing first hand she was doing so well in our absence in his care. Would definitely book again.

What John would like to know about your dog

Please have proof of rabies vaccine. It's for everyone's benefit. No aggression issues please. All dogs receive a temperament test, and seven point check upon meet, and greet. A seven point check includes, inspection of ears, eyes, teeth, skin, coat, tail, and paws. This insures that any preexisting conditions are noted, and treatment can be properly administered.

When John watches your pet

Your dog will enjoy walks through out my neighborhood. We will play chuck it, or just hand toss a ball around. I am extremely interactive with all dogs. I honestly enjoy playing with my furry friends. Smaller, and mellower dogs can also play inside. I enjoy staying physically active, and a tired pack, is a well behaved pack.
