Steve was amazing! We have a rescue dog who is scared of new people and we are very picky about who we have watch him. Steve went way beyond our expectations and my dog LOVES him. Steve is an excellent resource and so good with dogs - patience and understanding. On my flight home, we got delayed by weather and he came by at the last minute to walk my dog again.

Pets are Family

Dogs have been a part of my life for 25 years. They live with us as if they are part of the family. I'm a firm believer in walking my dogs at least 3 times a day (with one walk being at least 45 minutes long), brushing their teeth regularly, brushing their fur daily, and positive reinforcement rather than punishment. We make sure they are mentally stimulated by playing games (fetch in the swimming pool ...

What Stephen would like to know about your dog

If there are any special directions needed in taking care of your dog (medicine, exercise, food, etc), please let me know. Also knowing where the leashes are kept if I am walking your dog(s) helps me. I have no breed preferences.

I like to walk around whatever neighborhood I'm in. With my dogs, we walk a mile in the morning, half a mile in the afternoon, and two miles in the evening. If my kids are with me, we stop by the park sometimes and the dogs love to sniff the field next to the park. At home we play fetch in the backyard, they practice commands (stay, heel, come), and use back rubs and toys to relax. Every dog is different and I would match their activity level the best I could. I've taken care of dogs that love to swim in the backyard pool. Other dogs are fine playing fetch with their toy in the house. Almost every dog loves a lot of petting and TLC which I give in spades. I am a full-time teacher now, and am available weekends, summer months, and some holidays and evenings.
