Matt is very dependable and easy to communicate with. He has sat for our dog Benji many times and often at the last minute. Benji loves their time together and is always tuckered out after a good walk or play date with Matt. We really appreciate Matt's ability to accommodate our needs and his reliability. Benji can't wait for the next time he sees Matt!

Animal lover at your service!

I am a stay at home writer. My wife and I just got back from a 5-month trip around the world. I'm looking to make some extra money as we settle back into life in New Haven. I have a 7 year old dog and a 6 year old cat.

I have always loved animals, and can easily connect with even the most difficult dogs. I hope I can help you and your family travel ...

What Matthew would like to know about your dog

I like knowing about any special needs or behaviors (e.g., my dog does not like to share toys, or goes "instinctual" when a squirrel is seen. I'd also like to know what your animal does for fun.

When Matthew watches your pet

I love edgerton park, I also enjoy hiking/walking up East Rock. I love sports, so playing fetch and keep away is always fun too.
