Stephen was great! He was able to accommodate us with every need. He took our dog on lots of runs, walks and hikes and sent us many photos while we were gone. We will definitely use him again!

Stephen was great with our two pups for an overnight stay! Our pups love going out for walks - he took them on a hike and sent a picture of their adventure. They didn't want to leave & came home tired - great for us (& the pups)! We will definitely reach out to Stephen again.

Stephen was great with my VERY energetic Australian Cattle dog. She can be difficult to mange sometimes but he had her tired out and napping in the middle of the day, which she never does (she is currently only a year old and her breed is so high energy). He took her on hikes, played a lot of fetch, and even sent some photos of her.

About Stephen

  • Verified Background Check

Medical Student

I mostly work/study from home as I am a medical student in my pre-clinic years, so I am able to hangout with the dogs for most of the day. I am extremely active, whether its hiking, biking, or going to the gym, and I take many breaks throughout the day to get fresh air. I would describe my communication style as firm, but friendly. I have a 11 year old Husky back home, Dakota ...

What Stephen would like to know about your dog

I love all dogs, but Huskies are very special to me as that is what I grew up with back home .

Walking on grounds at U.Va, hiking nearby at Monticello or Riverview park, or just hanging out with me while I study in my room.
