Very detail oriented and my dog Momo was already missing Matthew right after her pickup.

Matt is without a doubt THE best Rover sitter you could ask for. He house sat and took great care of my two dogs. He was in touch on a regular basis with pictures and notes about how the day was going. He vacuumed my house and it was spotless when my wife and I got home. He is a DREAM.

Matthew was excellent again with my dog’s stay. I forgot to bring food in the morning rush of dropping her off ... and Matthew offered to purchase the exact dog food beand and type.

Devoted Doggy Guncle

I am an experienced dog "brother" AND "uncle" - a wholehearted dog lover and enthusiastic walker.

Any family member of yours will be a part of my own for the duration of a stay or walk I've grown up around primarily smaller-to-mid sized dogs, but in recent years have taken care of and interact more with mid-to-larger sized goofballs.

Dog or House Sitting:
I know boarding our loved ones can be rough, and the good boarders ...

What Matthew would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences, and require only that dogs be fully housebroken. It is important for them to also be obedient as far as recall goes, especially as this is an urban environment. Anything beyond "Come" - or your preferred recall command - is a bonus.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Matthew watches your pet

Daily walks (weather permitting) on Capitol Hill and/or play time at Magnuson Park, Seward Park, or Genesee Dog Park.
