Tom and his family were fantastic with Annie!! She was so content and happy, which was peace of mind while we were away. Tom took great care of her, gave her attention, daily walks, reassurance during storms to lessen her anxiety and sent us periodic updates to let us know how she was doing. We would highly recommend Tom!

Tom shows affection, respect and love to all animals. He bonds quickly with pets and would probably prefer to spend time with most animals, over people.
