I have used John three times now to pet sit my two beloved pugs. My pugs are now attached to John and go “crazy” when they see him come. John is very responsible and great with the dogs. I even trust him to get the dogs in the house when I’m no home. Again I highly recommend John and so do the Pugs!!!

My husband and I have known John for almost 18 years, from the time was a really little neighborhood kid!

John is reliable and honest. He adores dogs but has not been able to own one of his own due to allergies within his family. You won’t find a kinder person or a more sincere gentleman to care for your dog.

Your dog won't want to leave

I am responsible and loving, first and foremost. I am becoming a dog-walker because I'd like to spend my time on weekends doing something rewarding and enjoyable instead of just going to bars and being lazy around the house. I've volunteered for about 200 hours at Baypath Humane Society in Hopkinton where I was formally trained to put on harnesses and walk/play with dogs at different sizes and temperaments, while also helping our customers ...

What John would like to know about your dog

I hope that your dog is at least moderately trained and will not ruin anything in my house. Aside from that, I don't really mind if he/her is lazy, energetic, or somewhere in between :)
