Matthew has taken great care of our dog on two occasions. Our dog Emmett remembered Matthew and was excited to return. It is a comfort to know our dog is safe and having fun while we are away. We also appreciate the updates. We would book with Matthew again.

Matt took excellent care of our beagle while we were away. He kept us updated and sent pictures. Easy to communicate with!

Matt did a great job with Maggie and taking care of our house for a week. Very responsive to our texts while we were gone, even putting the garbage on the curb on garbage day. And when he stopped by later to pick up a forgotten umbrella, Maggie was VERY excited to see him! :)

Dog Lover Who Works From Home

I love dogs. I grew up with dogs and often watch my parent's or sister's dogs when they are away from home.

I work from home in health IT consulting and have the ability to watch dogs during the day. I enjoy taking dogs to the park and getting some exercise with them on a walk weather-permitting. Given my work schedule, I often have flexibility during the day to walk dogs as necessary too and ...

What Matthew would like to know about your dog

I would want to know its daily routine including when it eats, how much water it drinks, when it needs to be let out including if it needs daily exercise, and if it has any special needs (e.g. medications).

It would also be helpful to know how well it gets along with other dogs if I need to walk it or how friendly it is with strange people.

When Matthew watches your pet

I will walk the dog around my neighborhood. If the weather is nice, I would take the dog to East Goshen Park or one of the surrounding parks within 10 minutes that are dog-friendly.

If the dog likes to be rubbed or play games, I would give it some attention as necessary in the morning or evening.
