John was AMAZING!! He sent us updates throughout the week (with pictures?) while we were on vacation, which was great! We really appreciate John and plan to use him again on our next vacation! Thank you!!

John took good care of my pup. He sent updates. I picked up a relaxed, happy pup. I've already booked him for another stay.

John was able to take my dog for the weekend on super late notice! She slept the whole day when I got her back! Glad she had a good time with John.

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.

When John watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Most of the time where I live. Plenty of room, little traffic and the scent of thousands of dogs to investigate.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
So far, the dogs I've cared for have slept in their bed in my bedroom.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I generally take your dog with me if I need to go someplace. I find most dogs would rather take a ride in the car than sit home.
