I wish I could rate more than five stars! Our doggos came home from their walk with Matthew tired and happy! Matthew was timely to the scheduled appointment and treated our dogs like they were his own. Our dogs know when Matthew is coming over and always look forward to his visits, greeting him enthusiastically!

Matthew is an amazing caretaker!!! We have utilized his services countless times, and our two pups absolutely LOVE him!

At 6’2, 200lb, if I’m walking your dog I will protect them from attack, and do all I can to ...

When Matthew watches your pet

I will check the map for parks or anything that would be stimulating. We can play fetch, I love tug of war, and roughhousing. If I stay over I offer a complimentary bath and brushing. You can even book a drop-in for that service alone.
