Matthew did a great job checking on my kitten while I was out of town! He was very considerate of her needs and made sure to stick with any specifications for her. He was also very responsive and updated me frequently on how she was doing. I would definitely recommend him to take care of your pet!

Matthew is the only person I trust to watch my three cats and hedgehog when I go out of town. He is knowledgeable on the needs of many different animals and is always kind. He's a trustworthy individual who always listens to us about the special needs for our animals and will follow them without fault.

Matthew should be your go-to person for a loving dog caregiver! He’ll talk to, cuddle, walk, and play with your pup. He’ll also never forget to provide enough water or treats! He’s the only dog sitter I trust to leave my dogs with!

When Matthew watches your pet

Dogs can expect to have fun. I can bring them for walks around local parks and trails, watch them play in my large yard, or simply relax at home to enjoy quality pets and good ol' scritches on the head.
