Steve is amazing! He’s taken care of Kaci several times when I come to Perdido Key on vacation. Knowing that she is in good hands gives me peace of mind so that I can enjoy my stay. Kaci typically doesn’t like new people and gets anxious when she goes to new places, but she goes right with Steve when I drop her off. She knows the drill, and she has her own “spot ...

Zoe was a sweet girl I found roaming the streets about 1 1/2 years ago. I tried to find her owners, but to no avail. I’ve learned a lot about her in that time and the most important thing I’ve realized is that she has separation anxiety. She didn’t do well the one time I had to put her in a kennel, so I searched for another solution. When I read ...

Experienced dog sitter in SW P'cola

Welcome. I provide petsitting and playdates in a knowledgeable and pet friendly home environment.

I have been a pet sitter with DogVacay and Rover for over 3 years now. During this time, I have had the pleasure of hosting hundreds of wonderful dogs, enjoyed their company, and met their many great pet parents. I truly strive to give each guest a memorable and enjoyable stay while they are away from home. However, many dog parents ...

What Steve would like to know about your dog

I would prefer a “Meet and Greet” visit prior to your pup’s stay. During this visit we can discuss their activities, habits, any medical issues and anything else that would make your pup feel comfortable in a new, temporary environment. My main objective is to minimize stress and provide a safe and enjoyable experience for them. I accept all dogs - large and small.

When Steve watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live on a quiet private street near the back gate of NAS with no through traffic and perfect for walking. I’ll try to match your schedule for walks to make this the best experience possible.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Anywhere they want! We recommend that the pet parent provide the bed their pooch sleeps in as well as a couple of favorite toys to help ease the stress of being in a new place. My dogs are allowed on furniture and beds - and yours are welcomed to do this too - with your approval.

Time I'll spend with your dog
At least one of us will be home at all times while we have guests. My dogs are inside almost all the time, but we build in plenty of outdoor play time. I always supervise all dogs while they are outside to assure safety.
