I am very comfortable recommending Manuel to care for your beloved dog. He has dog care experience and can provide references from other clients. I also know that you should be comfortable to have Manuel enter your home. He is a man of integrity.
Full disclosure...I am his parent.

I've watched Manuel gain confidence with animals since he met my dog Jasper (10 years ago!). He's conscientious and a great care-taker. Jasper always looks forward to seeing and staying with him. Thanks Manuel!

When Manuel watches your pet

In the Loop, or wherever the client lives. As long as it's ok with the client I will also take them to a dog park. I can take them on short or long walks around the neighborhood. Also, can run with them if needed.
