John is just great! He's wonderful with my dogs, they can be a handful, but he's clearly at ease and has such a love for dogs.

Dogs were happy and content when we arrived home. House was like it had had no visitor. John always answered my questions and sent pictures when requested. Thanks John

Super friendly dog-lover for hire!

I have always loved dogs, and dogs have always loved me. Northern California Weimaraner Rescue called me their Volunteer of the Year for 2014. I've boarded and babysat all sorts of puppies and dogs, from Chihuahuas to Great Danes. I love all animals, and advocate for their rights and well-being. I also take direction well, so if your dog(s) has particular medical needs, activity routines, or bedtime rituals, I can easily accommodate your requests ...

What John would like to know about your dog

I would like to know the dog's temperament, likes and dislikes, its daily schedule, and any dietary needs it has, along with any pertinent medical information.

When John watches your pet

I like walking around the dogs' neighborhoods with them. I like dog parks too. Car rides are fun sometimes. And then of course there's fetching balls and swimming in pools and belly rubs and scratches behind the ears. Then there are gourmet meals and obstacle courses and training for Westminster too.
