It was a quick overnight- but all seemed fine. I barely knew he was there- very neat! My Bosco is shy- but he seemed quite happy.

Thanks for the review Denise!!! Hope to see Bosco again soon

Super experienced with dogs. I came home to a very happy dog after Matthew's first visit while I was away for the day with a friend. Will use his services again very soon.

Thank you Tatiana!! Anytime!

Vet Technician& Outdoor Enthusiast!

Hello! My name is Matt and I have been caring for dogs and animals of all kind for as long as I can remember!

My love started from walking dogs when I was 13 and led me to study Biology in college. I spent 5 years as a vet technician at a sea turtle hospital in Florida, and then moved home to New York where I currently work as a veterinary technician at a small ...

What Matthew would like to know about your dog

I would like to know about how the dog reacts to new people or other dogs, so that I can prepare for entering the home and taking the dog outside. Does the dog have special requirements (medications, food allergies)? Any breed!

When Matthew watches your pet

The types of activities I would do with the dog would completely depend on the type of dog I am caring for, as well as the preferences of the owner. Big dogs or dogs with high energy I would love to take for a run around the neighborhood or a hike in one of any nearby parks or trails. I love to be active for my own personal exercise and I love to pair that with a dog that is also looking to get out pent up energy. My brother's (enormous) dog Boomer, whom I live with, I love to take swimming, hiking in the mountains, or out to play fetch. On the contrary if a dog is only looking for company on the couch or playing a small game of fetch in the house or the backyard, that's what we'll do! I love to work on training behaviors, and have learned so much from my time at animal shelters with dogs whom have had a tough background.

I offer a free meet-up or phone consultation so that I can meet you and your pets and learn more about their health, behavior, and any other special needs. I send a daily email/text to update you on your pets' well-being while in my care. Hope to meet you soon!
