Russell was terrific!! My dog is elderly, and on multiple medications. Russell made sure to send me an update each day, assuring me Sydney was walked, fed, and had taken all her meds. I had such wonderful peace of mind knowing that although I had to work late, Sydney was cared for and not distressed at having to wait for me to get home! I highly recommend Russell.

Very conscientious & communicative. Excellent rapport with my two doggies. Great attention to their needs--one senior dog & the other 10 yrs. younger. Definitely will use again!
