Kevin was very hospitable and we could tell out dog would receive attention for the duration of his stay. It was comforting to know that he wasn't off in a kennel but had social opportunity and the ability to have some free range outdoors. The stay was also a great value, and we'll be booking Kevin again for sure.

Kevin has a genuine love for animals. Having two dogs to care for, he knows the ups and downs of being a provider and understands the nature and individuality of each animal he watches. I trust him with my animals wholeheartedly.

I’ve known Kevin for a decade and can vouch for his love of dogs. There’s not a selfish bone in his body and he’ll love your fur kids like he loves his own!

Full time / stay at home dog sitter

Born and raised in Tompkins County, I recently returned home with my two terrier-mix rescues Toby & Trooper. I live in Newfield, NY (1.5 miles off Rt 13/Elmira Road) in a former pottery studio turned wheelchair accessible tiny home with an open, dog friendly floor plan. Happy to serve your current brand of food - otherwise Wegmans Nature (wet) and Blue Buffalo Grain-Free (dry) meals are served and hand sliced turkey or roast beef ...

What Kevin would like to know about your dog

I have Facioscapulohumer Muscular Dystrophy, a genic muscle atrophy disease with no cure or approved treatments; thus, I use a power wheelchair to avoid falls. My company offered me a long term disability package which allows me to be a full time, stay at home dog sitter. Because of wheelchair, I do not offer house sitting or drop in visits (because most homes have steps up to the front door, etc) or large dogs, however I do drive a modified van and am happy to provide complimentary door-to-door shuttle service. For more info, Google: CDC FSHD Kirby - - for a short article about me.
