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!

Russell was an amazing dog sitter for our pup when we went away to California. He was very easy to work with, and bonded with our dog right away. My dog seemed relaxed and at home with him, and we have been very happy with all our interactions as a whole. He even sent me a video of one of their walks! I highly recommend him as a responsible dog sitter.
