Pat is a pet lover through and through, and has a special love for dogs. He currently has one dog, and we have trusted him to watch our two dogs (Giant St. Bernard/Newfoundland and a Yorkie) many times. He is responsible, and loves playing and giving attention to his canine friends. I cannot recommend him more to watch your pups.

I'll be your dog's quirky uncle!

I have been a dog owner for the last seventeen years and the go-to pup-watcher for dozens of friends over the years. From Sansa the one-year-old St Bernard to Moe the geriatric Yorkie-poo I have experience caring for all kinds of dogs and a love for each and every one. I work a standard 9-5 job but have substantial flexibility for pre-work, post-work, and lunchtime visits for feedings, walks, and potty time. I live downtown ...

What Patrick would like to know about your dog

When meeting a new dog I want to learn as much as I can. First and foremost I want to know how they interact with people (especially children) and other dogs. Our pup loves people but struggles with other dogs so that's a lifestyle with which I am well acquainted. From there I will want to learn their schedule and habits (are they food driven? do they counter-surf? do they NEED their favorite toy before they'll relax?). I want to know how to best keep your dog happy and comfortable. I won't be a substitute for their beloved mom or dad but I want to get as close to that as I can. I adore pit bulls of any shape and size but have experience caring for everything from a friend's Newfie/St Bernard mix to my parents' Yorkie-Poo.

When Patrick watches your pet

I'm happy to walk your pup in their most familiar neighborhood or to explore any of Rochester's wonderful parks. It's all up to you (and them)! I'm a fan of Highland and Ellison Parks but am most at home walking around my own Park Avenue neighborhood. If you're pup is happy in dog parks I'd love to facilitate play time there. If they're not great with other doggos we can play, wrestle, or just lounge around your own back yard.
