Francois sat for entire month for us this past summer while we were in Europe, 2 dogs Theodore and Daisy and 2 cats, Gabriel and ZayZay and our home, which was kept immaculate. We have a difficult, very fearful ChiChi, Theodore, who is a challenge but Francois worked hard and took extra time with Theodore. The little guy can be difficult. We felt our home and critters were in safe hands for what was an ...

Francois has sat for my pooches Buddy and Madison a number of times. I am so lucky and grateful I have suck a dedicate animal lover live in my house while I'm away. I can tell that Buddy and Madison have their long walks and meals. I much prefer this set up to the over night pet hotels.

Xavier did a wonderful job for us! He stayed with our two older dogs while we were away, and made sure one of them received her medications on schedule. Xavier was attentive to the special needs of our little dog who had a recent surgery, and followed our (very specific) directions to a T. We were never worried about our babies with Xavier at the helm—and that's really saying something! Extra bonus: Xavier left ...

Artist, runs with dogs, hugs a cat!

A dog’s life is all about joy. A happy dog’s exuberance is contagious. Their love of play, their love and their loyalty bring so much joy. Being around dogs makes me, happy, too. I’ve had dogs in the past, and will have one again, but right now, I have the flexibility to look after other people’s pets.

I’ve had a Dalmatian, and a Jack Russell Terrier, and I learned a ...

What Xavier François would like to know about your dog

I’ll get back to you right away if you message me. Communication is important! As for getting to know your dog, initially I want to hear anything you want to tell me. But the most important information will come at the meet-and-greet. I’ll watch your dog for comfortable body language, and I’ll get down on the ground with your dog and allow a nice, slow, sniffing and investigating session. Let me put the leash on the dog -- then we will be able to tell very quickly if our personalities will mesh. Let me know how your dog is, socially. How does your pup react around other dogs, other animals, or strangers out walking in the neighborhood?

Dogs like routines, so I will ask about mealtimes and bedtimes, and the best times for walks. If your dog has a favorite walking route or park, tell me all about that, too. I want your dog to be happy, healthy and comfortable.
