Roly definitely loves dogs and always gives them great attention & wonderful care! He has taken care of our dogs several times and is very responsible & reliable. I know he has had dogs of his own for many years; that he treats & loves as his own kids.

I have known Roland for many years, and for those years he has had a loving relationship with dogs.... He truly is a dog whisperer. I have personally witnessed his talents, as he has interacted with my yellow lab (a challenge)...slowly introducing himself to her, then to his own family dogs. He provides a dog love and attention; but yet in control. Roland is a sincere patient person who has an amazing ability.

Roland has a passion for working with animals, dogs in particular. He is very loving, kind, and genuine. He has a way of working with them where several have dubbed him our very own dog whisperer!

I enjoy their company & time shared

They are "kidz" and not dogs to me. Time with them is special and to be respected.

Of course, as with my pack, I am known to spoil them with TLC!!! LOL!!! I will work with the owners to carry on any training that ...

What Roland would like to know about your dog

Personalities of the pet is important the their "quirks" As I mention, if there is any training or commands that is being worked on, I would like to help keep it consistent. I would need a list of emergency contacts, family and vets. For 20 years my personal "kidz" are and have been Labs, Goldens Retrievers. I have worked with and owned Siberians, Norwegian Elkhounds, Samoys over 35 years.

When Roland watches your pet

If being off the leash is possible, fetch games is good. I prefer walking in areas that have sidewalks, but, if walks are in areas with no sidewalks, their safety with passing traffic is my main concern. I enjoy a playful wrestle and good hugs.
