I am so glad to have found Stephen. He loves animals and was very attentive to Chief’s needs. He made sure Chief was comfortable with him and then reported to me several times daily as to their status. Having Stephen sit in my house was an answer to our travel prayers.

Steve was great looking after my 5 dogs I had him stay at my home to keep them in their everyday environment. From the photos Steve texted me to keep my from missing them too much I could see they were relaxed and happy. Steve was also able to give one of my pups his sub q fluids for his kidney disease. I would definitely have Steve sit them again.

Stephen is the best dog sitter that I could hope for! He has consistently demonstrated his compassion and work ethic when watching my APBT Opie. Opie is a strong pup and he’s nervous around males. He went up to Stephen and had no problems at all! I would recommend Stephen to anyone that wants their fur child to be treated like family!

Experienced, professional care!

Hello there! I offer professional grade care for your fur babies. Whether you need in-home sitting or drop-in visits or fun walks, I aim to provide a friendly, impressive customer experience for you AND your dog. I was a police officer for 6 years until an injury forced me to retire and along with working with K9s professionally, I have been raising, caring for, and training dogs for decades. Dogs have been our loving companions ...

What Stephen would like to know about your dog

I love all breeds and understand that the combination of breed and the way they have been raised is unique to every pet. The most important thing I need is time to sit with you and the dog so they know you approve of me being in their space and so I can learn from you your companions quirks, likes and dislikes, and behavior. Other important info such as histories of abuse, resource guarding (AKA food aggression), and a history of aggression towards humans and other dogs is appreciated.
