Max did a great job taking care not only of my dogs but my property also. My dogs were very glad to see him. He played and fed them accordingly. I will for sure use him again when I need too.

thx again MAX

Max was a great sitter. He was very attentive to my dogs' needs, and treated them like his own. My dogs loved him, and were happy when he came in. He always kept me up to date with what was happening and followed instructions left for him. His sittings were in a hotel and he handeled the unusual requestion so well, that I know next time I will be requesting his services again.

My husband and I went out of town and being new to Columbus we didn't have anyone to watch our dogs and house sit. We found Max. He was great with our very sweet but also mischievous dogs. He sent us lots of updates and photos, left the house spotless, and most importantly our pups loved him. We highly recommend Max and will ourselves use him in the future!

About Max

  • Verified Background Check

Friendly, easygoing, fun, dog lover

For about 15 years, my family and I have taken care of friends/neighbor dogs. We had a dog of our own, Lelo (a rescue), for 13 years, and she died of natural causes a few years ago. I always had fun with her, and took great care of her. I have a friend who has a dog, and I love him like he is my own (even though I only see him maybe once ...

What Max would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. I like all dogs, big or small. I would like to know if a dog is friendly or not, even though I am usually attuned to the attitude a dog may have in the moment. If a dietary restriction is available, I would like to know ahead of time, just so there aren't any health problems that may come when I feed or give water to the dogs.

When Max watches your pet

I am familiar with many parks around the Westerville and Columbus area, so I know the best walking trails that would fit the walking preferences of different dogs. I think it's important for dogs to stay active in order to remain healthy, and I believe giving them daily exercise and play time helps maintain desirable behavior in the home. Playing a game of chase around the yard and a good game of tug of war with a rope or other toy can really get their energy out.
