Troy was great to work with, excellent with communication and sending pics and updates. The house was in great shape when I returned. The dog seemed to have had a great time, and I'll definitely book Troy again!

Eat, Play, Love

*As of September 10, 2018, I will be starting a 40 hour job, and will therefore no longer be taking walking, house sitting, or boarding requests. I will however continue to do drop in visits, so long as they are one/day. Thank you to everyone I've worked with over the past 1.5 years!*

Growing up, my mother strictly enforced a rule: we must always have a pet. I grew up caring for all ...

What Troy would like to know about your dog

I don't have any breed preferences, I love all dogs!

I would love to know:
- whether your dog has allergies
- are they afraid of/do they dislike anything (bikes, other dogs, skateboarders, etc...)?
- whether they'll need a meal, and what they eat
- any special needs
- do they have separation anxiety (not a problem, just important to know!)?
- favorite toys!

*I would like to stress that special needs are not a deterrent for me. I have worked with various dogs with special needs at shelters, through fostering, at work, and at home once my dogs got very old (my oldest lived to be 21!). As long as you can provide care instructions, I will definitely take care of your dog.*

When Troy watches your pet

I live in Bay/South End, on a quiet street. There are two big and beautiful parks near me, and I'm a 25-30 minute walk from Boston Common. There is plenty of room for playtime, and I live with my sister who loves dogs just as much as I do!

While working for a dog walking company, I had the opportunity to take care of dogs all over Boston and its surrounding areas, so regardless of where you live, I can provide a safe, fun, and active walk for your dog! I also worked as a groomer for this company, and have extensive experience with bathing different types of dogs.
