My experience with Skip was really great. He is a true dog lover. I was very comfortable leaving my two dogs with Skip. Great clean home environment. A true caring person! I am looking forward to booking a visit again

Skipper is the real deal in his dog connection. My husband, myself and our nervous nelly hound dog had the instinctual comfort at our first meeting- and we left her feeling secure and comfortable that she was in good hands. Skipper is easy to coordinate with, flexible and a down to earth nice man.

Working full time its hard to raise a new puppy! I needed some reliable help! Skipper came and did a meet/greet, could tell instantly that my puppy would be in good hands. He is retired and very flexible. I dont have to worry about my puppy when Iam at work

Dogs are fond of this old timer!

I have been blessed with having dogs in my family for most of my life. We currently have a West Highland Terrier (Brody Mac), German Shorthaired Pointer (Coral), and a rescued Poodle-Terrier Mix (Rocky) in our family. Now that I have entered the retirement phase of my life, I have more time for our dogs and feel called to be available to care for your canine family member. I will pet them, brush them, and ...

What Skipper would like to know about your dog

General health condition, any restrictions on food and activity, socialization with other dogs, behavioral issues. My breed preference is terriers although I like all dogs. I refer to most terriers as the "advance models" as I do not consider them a dog for beginning pet owners.

When Skipper watches your pet

Playing fetch and tug with toys is an activity that my dogs really enjoy. Taking walks in the neighborhood is also a fun activity. If the owner approves I will take the dogs to the local "dog park". I will also reinforce basic training commands such as sit, stay, come, heal, lie down. I use treats for training rewards.
