MJ is the best sitter and was one of the few that I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with for more than a week!

Sad that he’s relocated away from CA but I’m sure he’ll continue to be an A+ sitter wherever he goes!

Thank you so much for the glowing review—Dmitry is among my most special and missed guests & I hope you ...

MJ took great care of Milo. He provided updates with photos and he took him out for walks and kept him active. He was super accommodating given my crazy schedule and was always responsive to my texts/calls. Highly recommend MJ for dog boarding and looking forward to hiring him again when the need arises!

Thank you so much for the kind words! Truthfully, Milo wasn't any more active than me because he never ...

We can’t give MJ anything less than 5 stars. He’s responsive and sent many updates during our pet’s stay. We hope to use MJ again soon. Our dog Dash was super tired from playing when we picked him up. Great sitter!!!!!!

thank you so much—it was a pleasure watching Dash, who played so well with the others!

They'll be loved while you're gone!

About me: I'm a cuddler who has had at least one dog of my own for the last 25 consecutive years. I currently have three dogs (as well as cats that accept most small or medium dogs) ranging from 2-11 years and 10-60 pounds; hence I have found it works best to meet before booking our first stay to see how comfortable the animals all are with each other.

Experience: I bring years of positive ...

What MJ would like to know about your dog

I need to know how your dogs (or other animals) react to cats as well as other dogs. As each animal can interact differently with each other animal, I prefer to have your dog over for a visit before we book their stay. All animals can go in an out on their own—a non-starter for boarding most cats more than a couple days.

It will help my preparation and thus care of your dog to know his or her age and any health issues or limitations before taking your child in. I am strong enough to handle even rambunctious dogs and to assist small dogs with any stairs.

About MJ's Home

When MJ watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Dineen Park is among the best parks in the City. It offers the opportunity for your dog to be sociable with others or to walk in areas where we can be alone depending on your dog's needs. Walks are $10 for half an hour and $15 for a full hour.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Pets I sit can sleep on anything you bring, our dog beds or even our bed if practical and allowed.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I expect someone to be with your dog all but a couple hours of his or her entire stay, including play time as needed.
