About Fred

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a recently retired teacher who loves
dogs. I have plenty of time to devote to this job. I will love going for walks, playing in the nearby park etc. My wife(who is still teaching) also loves dogs and is looking forward to helping out when she can. When I retired as a teacher and International Baccalaureate Coordinator, I was given a formal legislative degree in Augusta honoring my 34 years in our local school district(RSU#21). We have outstanding reviews of our service and look forward to continuing that excellent service.

We could not be happier to have found Fred and Mary! We recently had our dog, Penny, stay with them for 14 nights while we traveled for our wedding/honeymoon.

Penny is 13, has never been boarded and has only stayed with family so we were very nervous about leaving her for such a long period of time. There was absolutely no reason for us to have worried! Fred and Mary welcomed her and treated her as their own. Fred asked all the right questions before hand. It was very easy to see that Penny would be well taken care of!

Fred went over everything again when my husband dropped her off and comforted her as he left. Fred then took Penny immediately for a walk to help calm her. Fred helped her settle in and took her on multiple walks a day. He sent us daily picture updates which were extremely comforting as we were so far away. She appeared very relaxed and comfortable in all the pictures and clearly loved trying out all of Fred's chairs. When we picked her up, she was happy, healthy and very relaxed! It was easy to see how well they bonded! Fred and Mary are the PERFECT sitters!

Thank you both so much for welcoming our girl into your loving home. I hope you are well and we will definitely see you again!
We could not have asked for a better DogVacay experience than we had with Fred and Mary. From the minute we walked into their well appointed home to drop our black labrador Poppy off, we could tell she was in good hands. While gone, we got a text with an update and a photo a couple of times a day, that made clear Fred is a thorough, patient, loving, sitter, who gave her lots of exercise and attention throughout her stay. When we went to pick P up at the end of her visit, she lounged on the rug as though she'd have been happy to stay with Fred and Mary longer. We'll absolutely use them again!
This was Rosie's third time with Fred and Mary... my review can be summed up in 1 word AWESOME! The best find ever. Thank you Fred and Mary!!!
