Tom is always great to keep us updated on our dog, he takes time to exercise her and makes sure she is well taken care of. We appreciate all the love and attention he gives her.

We are so grateful to have found Tom as our dog sitter! Murphy and Figgins were spoiled with daily hiking, swimming and a big enclosed yard for playing. Text messages, photographs and video kept us confident our boys were happy and well taken care of. We're definitely book with Tom in the future!

Home full time, big, grass, fenced.

I am a huge dog lover, and always enjoy taking care of dogs. I’ve owned a number of dogs throughout the years, and have always loved having them around the house. We don’t have a dog of our own right now, so my wife and I thought that it would be a great idea to spend our time with pups taking care of them and providing love and care to both them and ...

What Tom would like to know about your dog

Some things I like to learn ahead of time:

Would you like to schedule a meet-and-greet before the stay?
What’s your preferred method of communication?
Does your pup have any health issues that need to be tended to? For instance, dietary restrictions, medicine, or behavior triggers?
Does your pup like to stick to a given schedule, like regular walks in the morning and evening?
What does your pup do well around? What does your pup try to avoid?
What’s the best way to spoil your pup?
Sorry, but I do not take Pit Bulls, Dobermans or Rottweilers.

When Tom watches your pet

I am home all day (except for an occasional, routine errand or two) and can give your pup plenty of attention. I like to play fetch, so we’ll make sure to get a couple of good games in throughout the day. We will also go for a walk, depending on what your pooch likes to do; it will be anything from a short walk around the neighborhood to a couple mile walk to nearby Red Mountain Park to a real hike in the desert and mountains up to 5 or 6 miles. I will check with you before to find out what your pup enjoys and what they’re capable of doing. In the evening, we will probably watch a little TV; maybe out on the patio since we have a TV out there. I hope your pooch is a sports fan! My wife also loves dogs, so she will be involved in the evenings and weekends also. I love to be outside, so we will do a lot of outdoor activities.
