Patrick was awesome, took care of our pup, and left our house super clean. Definitely hope to use Patrick again in the future!

So reliable! Goes above and beyond. I can tell Patrick genuinely loves spending time with my fur baby, and she loves seeing him as well. I highly recommend his services!

Patrick is a nice guy but unfortunately we don't think he read the instructions that were provided to him for the weekend stay with our dogs. As a result, one of our dogs did not sleep the entire first night and wandered the lower level of our house. Our second dog, who uses the first as a security companion and cannot go down stairs on his own, was stuck upstairs without the first dog and ...

I consider myself incredibly lucky that I get to work doing what I love most: hanging out with dogs!

I get a lot of pleasure out of providing service to others, and no one is more grateful than a dog on the receiving end of a belly rub or a satisfied pet owner. I take pride in offering exceptional care and putting my clients' minds at ease. Every time I receive a new request I ...

What Patrick would like to know about your dog

While I don't have breed preferences, I do value meeting clients and their dogs prior to working with them. This allows me to best ensure my own safety as well as the safety of their pets. I always ask if a dog has a particular trigger or behavioral issue and ask how best to deal with it. When meeting a dog I always allow the dog to come to me first. I try to keep a calm and open energy when entering a client's home so the dog can see that I intend only to love and care for them. I always ask owners what their dog's routine is. This way I can put them at ease while their owners are away.

When Patrick watches your pet

One of the first things I do when booking a client is search for nearby parks. Parks are exciting and fun places for dogs as well as beautiful places that I can appreciate. I try to stay away from busy roads as a general precaution. If there is a dog-friendly trail, you can bet that I'll be walking on it! My favorite place to walk dogs in Minneapolis is along the Mississippi river if it's easily accessible.
