Kent is very good with large and small dogs. Not afraid to take a few kisses to the face! I have 3 German Shorthaired pointers ( i.e. insane ) that love to think they are lapdogs and Kent has no problem with their craziness.
As a retired biologist (& dog-trainer), I feel qualified to recommend Kent Madden as a dog care-giver. He is intelligent, responsible & knowledgeable about animal's needs & care. You won't find a more conscientious person to work for you.

I'm there for your dog!
I've always lived with animals and have been very interested in getting to know them. I think this has allowed me to get a feel for their needs. They sense that I'm "listening" and they communicate, each in their own way! I guess that's why animals like me.

What Kent would like to know about your dog
The dog's affectional needs (holding, petting, play); the dog's fears (loud noises? cats? kids?); the dog's schedule (does he/she need a walk before bed to avoid constipation? How much food and when? Whether the dog nips or bites or gets aggressive in certain circumstances; behavioral cues that the dog is upset. Any med needs or health concerns? Emergency numbers for vet, etc. The breed doesn't matter so much--doggie personalities differ a lot. My goal is to get to know the individual dog.
