My dog Blake loves staying with Walter and his dog. Blake came home happy and tired and clearly was well cared for. Walter was very flexible with pick up and drop off times, too. I highly recommend him as a sitter.

Walter is great. We have had our dog stay with him a number of times and we feel completely comfortable leaving her in his care!

Our very shy rescue had two wonderful visits with Walter and Vinnie and was clearly very much at ease after only a little time had gone by. Walter seems to have a very good understanding of and fondness for dogs and he send photos and updates on how she was doing during her visit. We wouldn't hesitate to let our dog vacation with him again.
