About James

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey there, thanks for viewing my profile and considering me for your dog sitting needs. I have been around dogs my whole life and love having them around. I have one extremely socialized pup who also is a big fan of having another friend in the house ( one of my main reasons for doing this) so we would be happy to host your pup.

I am a student right now with a lot of availability in my schedule. I am generally a very active person who loves being outdoors so keeping up with any dog's bathroom schedule is not a problem. I am located right off of Lincoln Park's North Pond so I have plenty of green space to provide walks in wide open areas. Aside from playing with my dog I have plenty of toys ( no plush toys because my dog swallows them )and love playing with new dogs so your buddy will be entertained while they are here.

Thanks again for considering me and if you have any questions please feel free to let me know!

My dog had a great time staying with James and his dog! James was flexible and easy to book with, and I enjoyed the daily texts and check-ins!
Our puppy had a great time with James and his dog Sinatra. James put us at ease and our puppy had her own vacation playing with James and Sinatra, and the other dogs that were around during that time. It has been a pleasure to meet James, and we look forward to booking with him again if he is available.
James is totally wonderful and amazing. I got regular updates about Billy, he let Billy sleep in his bed, and even went to buy extra dog food when what I had sent with Billy ran out. I highly recommend James! My dog is very small (8 lbs) but absolutely loved Sinatra the Husky. Anyone would be lucky to get James as their dog sitter!! Thank you.
James responded quickly and confirmed the reservation. I asked for a meet and greet, to make sure my Zoe and his Sinatra could get along. It was a perfect match! Sinatra is welcoming and they had a blast playing together over the weekend. James is a pleasure to work with, and provided pictures and updates throughout the weekend. I strongly recommend James for your dog sitting needs.
We were booking fairly last minute and were extremely lucky to find James. He and his dog Sinatra were great weekend companions for Bailey. She came home tired and happy. We received updates and pictures over the weekend. He was very flexibly on drop off and pick-up. We will definitely book with James again if we have to leave our sweet Bailey behind again.
Our dog, Fitz, spent 4 nights with James and his adorable pooch while my boyfriend and I were on a busy trip out of town. James texted me updates about Fitz, and included photos, and it was so nice to know that she was in such great hands and that we had nothing to worry about! She was well-taken care of and James was super nice and clearly a dog lover. Also, James' dog is such a sweet dog and let Fitz lay on his bed and share his toys, so Fitz enjoyed having a friend to play with all weekend. Thank you, James, for taking such great care of Fitz!!
James was an awesome sitter! He was great with Jeter and even sent pictures of him and Jeter on walks and playing with his dog. I would definitely recommend James again as he was super accommodating to my schedule and really helped me out.

Thanks James!
James was great to work with and Caillou was very happy during his stay !
