I have known Patrick for a few years now. He is a diligent, hardworking caring person. He has had many occasions to pet sit for me while I have traveled, as I have traveled to places that do not take pets. He always checked to make sure of the vets name and number, of my location in case of any emergency with the dog or if my dog had any problems or medicines that she ...

Lifelong Dog lover and caregiver
I have been around dogs all my life. I worked for 6 months in Florida in 2008 for a prominent Vet, as a kennel/vet tech assistant. The dogs in my life were always like family. In my youth, my grandparents bred and raised Norwegian Elkhounds. I always helped feed all 12 of them. At age 12, my family got our first Samoyed. My first wife and I got 2 English Cocker Spaniels when we ...
What Patrick would like to know about your dog
I have no breed preferences. I will sit and care for puppies under 1 year of age, but in cases where I am house sitting, the puppy must be housebroken. I would prefer to know if a dog has been trained to walk on a leash properly; if the dog has ever bitten a family member or relative; if I am to feed the dog upon my drop-in visit, I would need to know the amounts/type of food given; on overnight visits, I would need to know what the dog's sleep habits/needs to go out during the night would be. On overnight stays, I prefer to not have the dog sleep in the same room as I am staying in. I would need to assess the dog's level of separation anxiety and leash habits during a meet and greet.
