Kartik is awesome.
Our dogs love him and he is such a kind and positive person.
We felt super comfortable knowing he was staying in our home.

Kartik came and housesat for Jade for the weekend. He took great care of her, stayed in good contact with us, and left the house just as we left it. We also got the opportunity to meet with him prior to our departure and he seems like a super nice person who really loves animals. We will not hesitate to hire Kartik again the next time we need a housesitter!

About Kartik

  • Verified Background Check

I love all dogs!

I graduated from UC Davis, and am currently working in San Jose.
I am free on weekdays after 6PM and on weekends.

I have adored dogs for as long as I can remember, and have a beautiful golden retriever for 5+ years at my parents house.
I have stayed over at a friends' house to take care of their 2 medium sized dogs- a Labrador and a mixed-breed rescue of theirs.

I don't have my ...

What Kartik would like to know about your dog

I'd like to know its habits, or if it needs any special treatment.
For example, my parents' dog is a golden retriever and he really doesn't like Labradors for some reason. So, if the dog I'm about to sit has some similar quirks I would like to know those. Also, if the dog has dietary restrictions, and so on, then I would really appreciate knowing those beforehand as well.

Additional Skills
Can provide daily exercise

When Kartik watches your pet

I will take the dog(s) to nearby parks, and run or play with them. I'm an active college student, so I would be more than happy to play fetch with a ball or a stick.

While I'm in Pleasanton, I am working a full time job till 5:30 PM. I can walk dogs after that, or during the weekends.
I won't be able to offer dog sitting since it's not my house, however I can come and walk or exercise the dog at the nearby park.
