About Ahkeem

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey, I'm Ahkeem I just got my BA in philosophy from Eastern Illinois University. I just moved to Austin not to long ago for work and to attend The Iron Yard code academy for Backend Engineering.

I love dogs! Dogs have always been apart of my life, and there was always two dogs(three for a brief moment) in the house hold ever since I was two months old. I grew up with small and medium sized dogs from when they were just pups to when they became senior dogs. Every dog in my family was adopted at a very young age (1 year or less).

My home is always dog friendly, and what that means is... My dogs are free to roam around the home, I always love spending personal quality time with my dogs, because their not just my pal but part of the family. Their are days where I take my dogs out on a warm afternoon day to the dog park or just in the back yard to hangout and/or play fetch.

My philosophy with taking care of dogs, is to make sure they are happy, and feel safe and comfortable The only restriction I have is the dog running his or her business in the house. So for the new dogs I may get the chance to care of... we'll be spending a majority of our time out in my back yard at first until I get a good feel and understanding how potty trained the pup/dog already is.

Ahkeem was fantastic. He gave my dogs lots of love and attention, and kept us updated with photos. We will definitely use him again when we go out of town.
Worked out very well. I would definitely have potato "vacay" with Ahkeem in the future.
