My dog didn’t want to come home with me, so I guess he had a great time.

My dog had a great time. He is very sleepy. Matthew seems to have a good house for keeping dogs. He also sent me pictures and videos of my pup during the stay!

Matthew was easy to work with and Sugar enjoyed her stay. Although Sugar (my dog) was a little afraid of Buck at first, they actually got along great and it was great socialization for Sugar!

Nursing student that loves dogs!

My name is Matthew. I'm a 29-year-old nursing student at Samford. I've been dogsitting in the Birmingham area for the past two years to help pay for school! Rover really has been a blessing for me during this career change.

I have plenty of experience around dogs, and love getting to know all the amazing pups that I sit. Being a dogsitter is the perfect job for me. As long as your dog doesn't mind ...

What Matthew would like to know about your dog

Feeding/bathroom schedule, thunderstorm anxieties, any other "need to knows," etc...

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
