Robert took wonderful, personalized care of our dog. He took him on 2 walks a day and to dog park. Robert has his own dog and at first our dog and his didn't get along that well. But the situation improved and by the end of the 3rd day they were just fine with each other. We appreciated Robert's honesty about the situation - and the patient, sensitive way in which he handled it. We also ...

Bob is responsible, caring, and dog-savvy! Emma felt so comfortable with Bob and Flash. It was great to see her sitting on his lap as though they were old friends. And Emma is eleven so I didn't expect her to play, but Flash invited her and she participated. Yay!

Bob is my number one go to. He is patience, gentle, caring, responsible man who loves dogs. I know when I call him in need of someone to take of my Charlie (19 lb. Miniature Pinscher/Beagle) (who I consider to be my child), I can do what I need to do and have the immense peace of mind that my little guy is in amazing hands. I know that he will be fed, walked ...

Your Dog Will be Part of our Family

Hello There, I'm a super active 70 year old retired lawyer/teacher who has loved and kept dogs since the 50s,. I attended my first obedience class in 1957 with my English setter Pandy.I live in an apartment in Santa Monica. I have a fenced patio and there is a doggie door. I live a few blocks from the Santa Monica Airport dog park where my dachshund Flash and I are very well known ...

What Robert would like to know about your dog

I would like to know about any special challenges. If he or she suffers from separation anxiety or has issues like barking or aggression. Food or special health requirements need to be considered. I've never run into a dog I couldn't cope with.

When Robert watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We walk a lot. My neighborhood, Sunset Park is great for dogs. We walk first thing in the morning and in the evening. in between we usually visit Santa Monica Airport Dog Park either mid-day or late afternoon depending on weather or mood.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Anywhere he or she wants to. Most choose the big bed with Flash and me. For the ones who like more privacy there's the couch , the clothes on the floor in the closet. There's a bed under the coffee able for those who want to watch television. If the owner doesn't want there dog to get use to sleeping in bed, there's a gate that can be closed to keep them out of bedroom

Time I'll spend with your dog
Now that I'm retired I'm home or at the dog park most of every day
