Can’t say enough good things about our experience having Matt watch our puppy. Kept us updated and sent tons of photos so we knew how our little guy was doing. Would highly recommend!

Matthew is the best dog caregiver I know! He has been caring for my dog for a couple years now. She is now 11 years old and it is clear how much she enjoys his attention. Matt will walk her several times a day, feed her, play with her, brush her and sneak her treats. She absolutely loves him!

Helping care for furry friends

Hi, I’m Matt!

I’ve spent most of my life around dogs, and love every minute I get to spend around them. I grew up with a laid-back golden retriever, rescued a high-energy husky, and now have a senior sheltie. I’m used to all shapes and sizes, and can accommodate all energy levels.

Among friends, I’m the go-to person for pet sitting if they have to leave town.

What Matthew would like to know about your dog

Please give me a heads up on medical issues or phobias. Most breeds are ok. Prefer dogs that are not aggressive towards strangers (for my own safety.)

When Matthew watches your pet

I always try to get as many steps in a day as I can (Thanks Fitbit!), and it’s nice to have company for my walks and runs.

I’m also good at fetch (more the throwing part), frisbee, soccer, and even know my way around a brush.

I’m a big fan of Memorial Park, and the Buffalo Bayou trails for walks, but anywhere traffic can be avoided is great.
