Luke did a wonderful job with our 2 rambunctious, and sometimes anxious pitbulls. He was very attentive in our meet and greet, which left me feeling comfortable that he was up for the job. He stayed with our pups for 9 long days, and I know they did better sticking to their normal routine. Luke communicated well and provided great updates. I would highly recommend him. The house was clean when we got home and ...

Luke was wonderful with Hudson! He sent text message updates including photos, which was fantastic. Hudson is a mama's boy, so when Luke brought him back and he was fairly uninterested in seeing me, it showed me what excellent care he had been in and that Hudson really enjoyed his time in Luke's care. I would definitely recommend Luke to anyone in need of his services and will be using him when we are in ...

Luke is the best. I knew this from the beginning, as his profile is clear and our first meet-and-greet revealed a wonderful, intelligent, educated real, live grown up. I leave it to others to explore, but Luke is not your ordinary dog/house sitter. Bottom line- I trusted him with everything, and he gave me even more than expected. I give him my highest recommendation. More below.

Our dog was obviously cared for in the ...

The Puppy Messiah

I grew up around dogs. They didn't raise me or anything... but then again, maybe they did? (I certainly wouldn't be worse for it.) Either way, since leaving the nest many many moons ago, I've stayed involved in animal-welfare causes and have received training from programs like HeroDogs (provides service-dogs to disabled veterans), Austin Pets Alive!, and RuffTail Runners. And a few years ago I started dog-sitting on the side to make a little extra ...

What Luke would like to know about your dog

I love big dogs (including very big dogs). So don't fret if you have a large pup. I care only whether your dog is friendly or not (to humans and, to a lesser extent, to other animals). Please let me know what your dog's normal daily routine is, and how much attention and activity he or she needs to be happy.

When Luke watches your pet

Your dog will enjoy marathons of whatever I'm currently binge-watching on Netflix and an almost-unlimited supply of scratches, belly-rubs, and games of fetch or tug-of-war (limited only by my need to perform necessary life-functions). If you'd like, I can even take your dog for a run. (Note: this might entail an additional fee.)
