Russell did a great job house sitting for us recently. We were out of town when Alaska had a catastrophic earthquake. He stayed longer than we had initially asked him to and cleaned up glass so our dogs didn’t cut their paws. He was very good at keeping in touch throughout his stay.

Russell was a great dog sitter this past week! I appreciate his attention to detail and his prompt response. Our dogs were relaxed and cared for upon our return!

Thanks for the kind words! I truly appreciated Cooper's enthusiasm, Baxter's sweetness, and Zucci's playfulness!

We loved having Russell care for our house and animals. He was responsible and always quick to get back to me if I had a question. The dogs and the cat all seem to love him. He even took care of our out of town guest who arrived earlier than expected!!

Thanks for the review, Elise! I love watching Cricket, Maple, and Alexander Hamilton!

Genuinely Caring Animal Lover!


First: I live in the Airport Heights neighborhood in Anchorage, and I work in Eagle River from 8:30am-4:30pm weekdays, therefore, I am out of the house 8:00am-5:00pm Monday-Friday for work.

My name is Russell and I've lived in Anchorage for 7 years now, and I lived in the valley for 7 years before that. Up until I went to UAA and then moved into a rental house here in Anchorage ...

What Russell would like to know about your dog

I don't have any breed preferences, I love them all! While I was growing up we had a Siberian Husky named Dibble, a Shar-Pei named Mojo, a mutt named Chubbles, a Pit Bull/Bull Dog mix named Bliss, and more!

When Russell watches your pet

If you have a preferred or regular walking/exercise places I can take them there if you prefer, otherwise I am familiar with multiple dog parks in the Anchorage area.
