About Justin

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
About Justin
I strive to provide top quality care for you loved ones on four legs. We are located in a safe, quite dog-friendly neighborhood with a closed in porch and large yard. We are located next to a 6 mile walking trail that we can take your furry pals on a walk/run whatever they feel like without having to drive them anywhere. When your pet gets warm from playing we can come inside and kick back in the nice cool air. Of course you set the parameters for what you would like your dog to do during his/her stay. We also offer lower rates for watching your dog just during your workday.
Bring your own food, or for $2.00 per dog per night we’ll provide the food. Snacks provided at no extra charge at your request. We will not give your pet anything not first approved by you.

About the Sitter
I provide top quality dog care. I love dogs and dogs love me. I am excited about the opportunity to turn my passion for the four-legged friends into a fun job. Here at my home, your pet will get my full attention and will always be supervised.
I grew up with dogs and have taken care of dogs all my life. I have 2 years experience actually dog sitting but have over eighteen years experience working with dogs. I am 30 years old.

Why I Love Dog Sitting
I have loved animals, especially dogs, since I was an infant. As a baby just able to crawl I was outside just me and our lab Queeny who looked after me. Now I look after other dogs. I love dogs of all types and sizes so watching for others makes perfect sense.
Dogs have unique personalities and I enjoy figuring them out and interacting with them. No dog is the same.

About My Yard
At the moment, my yard is unfenced but very large for a city yard. Your pet would be on a leash when playing in the yard unless otherwise specified. We have a closed in porch where they can play unleashed.

Medicine Administration
I only have experience feeding worm pills to dogs but as long as it is medicine they can take through the mouth we can administer it just provide us with the info and directions. For liability purposes, we cannot administer shots or medication with potentially harmful side effects.

What We Need to Know
What is your dog afraid of? Is your dog comfortable around other unknown dogs? Does your dog have behavioral issues or any allergies? Is your dog house broken? Will your dog wake me up to let me know it needs to use the bathroom or will I need to set an alarm to take them out? We don’t want your pet holding it in. If your pet is in heat or not neutered let me know so I can schedule only 1 type of sex for that day.

Your Dog’s Sleeping Arrangements
Well honestly it is up to the dog! You may provide us with your pets favorite bed or we will put down nice soft pads for them but ultimately a dog will find where they are most comfortable and go to sleep. if dogs do not get along they will be kept separated while I sleep or leave the room.

Time I’ll Spend With Your Dog
Most of the day except when cooking or something Like that. And a few hours Monday-Thursday while I attend class.

The Dog Limit
If you have more than 3 dogs we have no problem watching them all we just won’t have more than 3 dogs from different owners at once to avoid problems and to provide quality attention. 4 dogs on the weekend.

The No’s on Dogs
For liability purposes, we cannot accept aggressive breeds ( the list provided does not have all types of aggressive dogs so I couldn't select all the ones I do not accept). I am terribly sorry about this. If you have an aggressive breed I can come to you and if he/she does not like me we can work a way for me to feed him/her while your gone. We understand no dog is born bad.

We can not accept dogs that are not at least potty trained unless provided with a crate for them to stay in when not outside.

Our Services
We offer dog sitting services for whenever you need them. Going out of town or just don’t want your pet home alone while you’re at work, we’ll watch them for you. For a fee we will pick up and drop off your pets at your house, fee based on distance and you must provide a travel crate for your pet for safety. Just need your dog walked part way through the day? Contact us. Need your dog delivered to the vet but don’t have time? Contact us with details.
Feel free to give us a call, come by, bring your dog and check everything out.

The Inside photos
The pets will be in the bedroom when not on the porch playing, going for a walk, or playing in the back yard. It will be used for light play and letting the pup cool off and relax in comfort. The bathroom will be closed but you know dogs if I open it to go in they might rush in to check it out so I uploaded a photo of it. The bedroom has about 130 square feet of open floor for you pet to roam around and play in. Where ever your pet wishes to go I will always be supervising and when ever they want to go into the yard I will have them on a leash and/or line for safety but it will have plenty of length to let them feel like they are roaming free.

This was our first DogVacay and it was great. Both our dogs seemed happy and we even got pictures. Justin was truly a great host and I truly appreciate him opening his home to Gunner and Bella.
Justin did an excellent job caring for our dog. It was great receiving daily updates.
We really felt comfortable leaving our 2 boys with Justin. They were very well behaved when we picked them up and we received updates as requested. In fact, Sammy (our 10 year old) is more energetic now than before we dropped them off! We would not hesitate to leave our boys with Justin again and highly recommend him.

I got photo updates every night that I was out of town. My babies were well taken care of and even got to socialize a bit! I will definitely contact Justin the next time I go out of town.
Justin has been watching our 9 week old Lab for us. We were in a pinch when we adopted our pup as my fiancé and I both work 8am-5pm jobs. Our pup wasn't doing so great being crated all day, and we needed help. We found Justin on the DogVacay site, and saw his great reviews, and decided to give him a shot. He's watched Raja over night, and during the weekdays while we worked. Our pup is well taken care of with Justin. He sends us pictures through the day, and replies back with helpful tips, guidance etc. We are very happy with Justin. Give him a try!

Great experience!
Bailey seemed just great when I picked her up & Justin stayed in touch with lots of photos.
Justin is very friendly and responsive to message. I failed to confirm the drop-off time with him, but when I emailed him on a desperate attempt on the morning of the drop-off, he immediately responded me back and everything worked out. Would definitely use him again!

We moved unexpectedly from Arizona to Florida, and had a 12 day cruise booked and paid for leaving 1 week after we arrived in the a Orlando FL area. We didn't know anyone in the area who could watch our 2 dogs Buddy and Salem, for this period of time. I solely went by the reviews online, as I didn't mind driving a little further. Justinreacted fast within 19 minutes every time and set a meet and greet for 2 days after we arrived. He even assured us that if we chose not to go with him for whatever reason, he would find us someone else. He took all my worries away. I was a little sceptical about other dogs being there, because ours have been known to be a bit grumpy, but he assured us that it would be no problem. We went with Justin, and were more than happy with his service. So were our boys! We got updates on our boys every day, and they were well taken care of, including their medication. We will certainly be using Justin again!

He was very nice and our dog was very happy.
Justin was very nice and Jax seemed to have enjoyed his stay! I felt comfortable with my pup being there and would book again for sure!
Justin was super polite, and understanding. I enjoyed knowing that Pepper had other dogs to socialize with as well as the picture updates he took of her while she played , lounged , went on walks. I recommend his services to everyone.
It was our first time using DogVacay and we were a little nervous but Justin clearly does this all the time. He was very friendly with Fox and just meeting him made me feel more comfortable! He took our puppy on multiple walks and sent lots of picture updates that we looooved!

This was my first time with Justin and he was phenomenal with my pups. Drake and Rocko had a blast over the weekend and were very well taken care of. I would definitely use Justin again in the future for my sitting needs!
This is the first time we have ever left our pet with a sitter whom we did not know. I was very skeptical and after our meet Justin put my fears at ease. He was very informative as well as listened to our concerns. Rocky has never been far from us for more than a day thus it was very hard for us to leave him. Justin was awesome and sent us pictures daily updating us of Rocky's day. Rocky has allergies and Justin made sure he was taking his meds in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Justin to everyone I know. I would definately come back the next time we go out of town, which will be more often now.

Justin keep me up to date with pictures while I was away and keep me inform of the puppies behaviors. He response to texts promptly. Maki and Toro will stay with Justin again :)
Justin watched our baby Melody while we were on vacation for a week. He was OUTSTANDING!!!! We had a lot of special needs and concerns about having someone watch our dog but, Justin made us feel at ease and provided exceptional service and complied with all our needs. He treated her as one of his own and we appreciate that very much. We would definitely have him watch our baby again!! Highly recommended!!

Justin is simply the best! He is very attentive to my dog's needs. Especially when it comes to his medication. Justin always sends updates along with photos on a daily bases which reassures me that my dog is in good hands. G.S. Orlando, FL.
