Steven was great to work with and did a wonderful job with our pup. Steven was very responsive and quick to help us out. We received feedback throughout his stay and never had to worry our pup wasn't taken care of. Would definitely recommend.

Yesterday was my first ever experience with Rover.com. My 5 year old dog Gunner can be somewhat challenging as he is leash reactive and tends to be afraid of other dogs although he loves to play once he trusts them. Steven made me feel so confident from the first time I contacted him that I went into this new experience with really no worry, and he did not disappoint! Steven took Gunner into his ...

I had a great experience with Steven watching my puppy. He was responsive when planning days/times for daycare. He was flexible with my schedule. I got updates on how things were going during the day. His puppy is great with other dogs, and my girl made a new friend at Steven's house. I trust Steven, and I will be using him many more times for daycare and possibly boarding in the future!

What Steven would like to know about your dog

I wanna know anything that you feel will help me better care for your dog. Here's some questions to give you an idea of what I'm curious about:

How is your dog(s) with kids and other dogs?
Are there any issues with reactivity on leashes, or with people, or dogs?
Is there training that you're doing? What command words are you using?
What does your dog like to do(fetch, walks, running, dog parks, water, etc)?
Do you use any tools with your dog(harness, prong collars, e collar)?
Are you struggling with any behaviors?
Is your dog crate trained?
Any medical conditions?
Issues with fear/anxiety?
Any resource guarding issues? What types or resources(food, toys, bed, etc)?
**How are your walks going? Is there lots of pulling? ... lunging?
Anything else you can think of.

When Steven watches your pet

We're fortunate to live across the street from a local park with large open fields and we're close to Victory Memorial and Theodore Wirth Parkways. I love to go on long walkabouts with the dog(s) and sometimes kids, it's one of my favorite things about having a dog.
