Phoebe loved Stephen! She's usually a bit standoffish with new people but she hit it off with him right away. He kept us updated daily (more than once a day). We really appreciated the updates and it was obvious that our fur-baby was in good hands. Thank you Stephen!

Stephen was great with our three dogs! He house and pet sitted for five days and our dogs seemed very content when we got home! He took care of them the way we do!

I highly recommend Stephen. At first meeting Stephen, our bulldog Cody, who usually barks at everyone, walked straight to Stephen to be petted. NO Barking whatsoever. Our other dog Lickie, absolutely loved him.
Stephen was great at communicating throughout the process. He spent time to get to know us and the dogs. I felt very comfortable having Stephen take care of them. What an added bonus to return to clean dishes...and washed sheets. WOW ...

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.

When Stephen watches your pet

I hike and run as a hobby and have a strict non-choke collar policy. Different activities are more stimulating for certain dog breeds, and I will use this to make sure your baby gets the most out of his or her outside time I.E. fetching for retrieving breeds, toy/treat hide and seek for hounds, distance walks for high-energy breeds, etc.
