Tom is the best sitter I've ever had. He obviously is a dog person....and my dog loved him. One thing that I particularly like is his maturity - he's responsible and respectful. He's laid-back and my guess is that he doesn't get rattled by much. When I returned home, my place was in great shape. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing someone to watch their animal(s) while they are gone.

Tom watched Roxy for 18 days while we were away, and now she clearly loves him. Plus we got great updates and photos, and even videos! Everyone is happy!

Tom had immediate rapport with our dog--he was affectionate and playful with him. We left on our vacation confident that our pup would be having a fine time, too! We'll definitely ask Tom to care for him again.

Best friends come in all breeds

Hi, I'm Tom! It's very nice to "meet" you. I have lived in Portland for three years now, before that I attended graduate school at the University of Oregon in Eugene, and am still recovering from a Minnesotan accent. I work from home full-time as a copywriter for a communications/design firm and love everything about my job except for its failure to include routinely interacting with dogs - watching dog videos on the internet just ...

What Tom would like to know about your dog

Your dog's special needs, triggers, and commands (or tricks) are all welcome and greatly appreciated. I have no specific breed preferences but have the most experience with hounds and working breeds.
