Stephen has been out go to pet care provider for both our dogs and cats. We are sad he left northern Virginia and we have to find a new pet sitter. Both of our puggle pups adored him. He made sure they had plenty of exercise and attention. And when they had diet restrictions he made sure to follow instructions meticulously. Very responsible.

Alex has watched my Siberian husky countless times and I've loved his reliability and love for my dog! I am also a Rover pet sitter so I know exactly what it takes to care for all types of dogs and Alex is just wonderful! Lots of photos, videos and care in his watch.

A dog's best friend!

Dogs are the best companions. They offer endless fun and unwavering loyalty. I’m caring, fun, and dependable, but even my best qualities can’t rival those of the dogs I’ve loved best.

My family used to own and operate a pet store, so in addition to caring personally for a wide variety of our own pets, I have a great deal of experience with animals of all kinds. I particularly love dog-sitting, though ...

What Stephen would like to know about your dog

At a meet-and-greet, the most important thing for me is familiarization with the dog and their temperament. I'd like to know their routine, medical needs (if any), and any other special details so we can avoid any stress for our furry friend. I don’t have any breed preferences, though. All are welcome!

When Stephen watches your pet

I'm a big fan of the outdoors and enjoy getting a daily walk or run in. We’d go on some casual adventures around the neighborhood and introduce the pup to some new friends at the dog park. Beyond that, our days will be determined by your preferred schedule, his/her energy levels, and how much your pup would like to play, go out, relax, or cuddle. I’m totally flexible; the dog’s needs and preferences will always take priority.
