Kip has a deep connection with dogs like no other. He speaks their mental language, is warm, caring, protective and fun-loving with dogs. I would entrust all of my pups under Kip's care at any time. Enlisting Kip to walk your dogs and care for them during the day would be nothing short of a blessing to them - they will have a great time and learn from a true teacher all the while.

Kip is our go-to pet sitter for our two dogs, outdoor cat, and fish. He is always so attentive and loving, taking special care of our older dog and ensuring he gets his meds. Kip communicates with us throughout and even sends us pictures! Which reminds me! He’s an amazing photographer and he offers pet portraits as an additional option while he takes care of your babies!

Fetch, Swim, Walk and Run

Dogs have been a big part of my life since before I could walk, talk or tie my shoes. Throughout the years my pack has included a Samoyed, a Golden Retriever and a 95 pound mutt I called Gumbo, whom I got the summer before my senior year at Sewanee. He was my co-pilot for 10 years on adventures that took us from Tennessee to Texas and Montana, and when he died, I had his ...

What Kip would like to know about your dog

I'd like to know a little about her temperament and if she plays well with others. Is a leash needed at all times? How does she handle riding in the car? More specifically, is motion sickness an issue? Are there any medications or food allergies I need to be aware of? What, if anything, is off limits in the house? Is she allowed on the couch, for example? My experience is diverse, so any and all breeds are welcome.

When Kip watches your pet

We can play fetch, Frisbee or tug in your yard or at the park. If your pup is a trail hound we can go hiking. If the urban jungle is more to her liking we can cruise the sidewalks in town. During the warmer months we can go swimming.
