John was great for our dogs. He was easy to work with and went the extra mile to be sure they were well cared for and happy. Barney is terrible about taking medication and John had to resort to putting powder in a little ice cream! Much less stressful than sending them to a boarding facility. We will go to John first for our next vacation!
Thanks John!

John did an excellent job. Buddy was very nervous at the start but John got him comfortable and relaxed and gave him lots of long walks. thumbs up for John.

We were very satisfied working with John and will contact him again when we need to employ his service. Our experience with John was a confirmation of his high rating.

Personal Attention

I'm 66 years old and semi-retired. I'm home most of the time and have been dog sitting occasionally for the last couple of years for two parties. Both have agreed to be available as references. I am meticulous with feeding, walking and giving any required meds. I bought my first English Bulldog in 1969 while in college and have owned three of them over the years. I do not own a dog at this time ...

What John would like to know about your dog

I think it's smart to know the personality traits of a dog in advance. I probably wouldn't do well with a neurotic dog that's prone to prolonged yapping spells. Most dogs tend to calm down a bit when they are with me.
