Russell has accepted several check-in visits for my puppy, Callie. She definitely looked forward to his visits each day and enjoyed playing with his dog too! He was flexible, responsible, and took great care of my girl while I was at work.

Russell watched our dog several times, and he always took such good care of him. I'm pretty sure our pit/amstaff mix missed him when he was gone! Russ would send us texts and pictures letting us know how our dog was, and he always took excellent care of him. He definitely goes above and beyond. I would highly recommend Russ to anyone who wants to leave their dog in excellent hands!

If you would like I can ...

What Russell would like to know about your dog

I would like to know eating habits, daily water needs, if they are or are not allowed on furniture, what is their attitude towards new people, are they on any medication, and what is their temperament on the leash.

When Russell watches your pet

I take Ginny on all the local trails. She is my handyman when I got on Home Depot trips. She has her own fan club there too. We try swimming. She prefers to bark at the water than swim haha
