Exemplary Pet Sitter!

My guiding principle is that your pets are members of your family. I first experienced this bond caring for our family's cats and dogs. My first dog, Tweek, was happiest running away.

When Matthew watches your pet

When the weather is nice, I enjoy hiking the trails surrounding the Rappahannock and also in Stafford and Spotsylvania. Fresh air is great! Once I get to know your pet, and mutual trust is established, there are a few nearby fenced-in areas to run around and play fetch.
