Matt is amazing! He came over to meet Brooks before he took care of him, which made me feel at ease! He looks out for my little guys safety and always make sure he has fun! I’d highly recommend Matt, and I will continue asking him to hang with Brooks!

I will be your dog's best bud!

Hi and thanks for taking a look at my profile. Huge dog lover here who hopes to have one or two of my own some day. I'm here on Rover.com for a couple reasons: 1) I work remotely for my job and would enjoy the company of a furry companion while working; 2) I'm hoping to get my own dog at some point and this would be a great way for me to take notes ...

What Matthew would like to know about your dog

Before watching a client's dog I would want to know if he/she gets along with other dogs/people/children. I enjoy going out for walks with a dog when I'm watching it and it's important for me to know how comfortable the dog is with other people and dogs. I would also like to know if the dog tends to be noisy and barks a lot. This would be stressful for me, especially at night when trying to sleep. Most importantly, I need to know their regular routine.

When Matthew watches your pet

I can't have dogs where I live and will be taking care of your dog at your place. So, my goal is to keep the same routine that your dog normally follows. I am in their home after all and my main goal is to not stress your dog out. The great thing with me is that I work remotely for my job and have flexible hours. I can stay with your dog as much or as little as needed. Is your dog used to someone being there all the time? Great, I'm there. Is he/she used to someone just popping in a few times a day. Great, I can go to my home between those times. I have definitely watched dogs where the situation arose that me being around all the time threw the dog off and made for a miserable sit.

I tend to not let dogs sleep in the bed with me but if that is their routine and they are well behaved throughout the night I am fine with it. I like to take dogs out for walks and especially to a park where I can throw something for them to fetch and give them some exercise.
