Great. Spectacular. Dog and caregivers fell for each other as an owner can only hope will happen. Such lovely, thoughtful and generous people. And the photo updates were certainly appreciated throughout our absence.

Robert and Peggy were amazing with our fur baby. They updated me regularly and took great care of my pup. I booked them twice and my dog was super excited to be back with them. They cared for my dog like their own and I know the time with Robert and Peggy was like a little vacation for my pup. Highly recommend!

I relax completely when my dogs are with Robert and Peggy. They provide a loving, safe and fun home. My dogs are ecstatic when I drop them off. My only fear is that they will not want to come home!

Loving Dog Parents

My wife and I lost our dog Labatt, five years ago - the last in a long line of beautiful golden retrievers we've owned over many years. After his passing and entering the retirement phase of our life, we decided to take a break from owning dogs so we can enjoy extended vacations. But we found we really missed the dog walks and having a "our best buddy" in the house! Enter Rover.... where we can ...

What Robert would like to know about your dog

Require "meet & greet" before committing to dog sitting so everyone can be comfortable with how dog will adjust to us and our home. At same time, we can learn about any special needs, gauge possible "separation anxiety". We reserve the right to decline dogs where we feel unsure as to their potential aggressiveness or other personality traits.

When Robert watches your pet

We walk all of our dogs 3+ times per day (early am, late afternoon and prior to bed time). Our preference is to walk thru our wonderful tree-lined neighborhood for 1/2 hour per walk, or if your dog is up to it, we can stroll (or drive) over to Wilshire park (1 mile away), which has an off-leash area (although we would not let "visitors" off their leash). Good chance to socialize with other dogs though. Our walk schedule is, of course dependent on the age of dog and level of energy & stamina.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Wherever it's used to sleeping at your home. However we don't allow dogs in our bed at night! Sorry, if this is situation at your house. But we're more than open to having your dog sleep next to our bed on blanket, in his/her dog bed, in a crate, or just "chilling out" on the floor somewhere.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Someone is home most of the day since we're both retired. There might be the odd hour or so alone - if we both have to run errands. Your dog will be the center of attention since we have no children & no other pets. We host only one dog at a time. The only exception we'd consider is an owner with two smaller dogs that are "good buddies" & used to being together all the time. Your pup will be one pampered pooch!
