About Jim

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*PLEASE NOTE: Due illness and upcoming surgery, I won't be accepting any reservations for undetermined length of time (as of Aug. '16).
Much published animal author with Masters in Biology/Animal Behavior, former World Animal Day Ambassador for the US, who has worked in animal welfare and rescue since the age of 14, who founded two animal sanctuaries, and who shares his life with a rescued, 4-yr.-old Great Dane (who was born deaf and is trained with hand signs) who LOVES all other friendly dogs, enjoys sitting dogs in my home. My rates are low as I consider it enrichment, socialization, and fun for my dog. We live one block from a park, go on frequent walks throughout the day, I work from home - rarely leave my dog at home alone, and would NEVER leave a dog I was sitting alone.
(I don't require a meet-and-greet, but need accurate notes about your pet, e.g., food/toy/leash aggression, thunderphobia, allergies, health issues, and mobility - I have stairs . Also, owner is expected to provide dog's normal diet and info about quantities and feeding times. I am not able to feed "free choice," as my dog has set breakfast and dinner times.)

Jim is a very responsible and knowledgable caretaker of pets. He gave me some suggestions about how to maximize my dog's well-being and even gifted us some of his homemade dog food.
Jim was very nice and communicative. He has his own sweet dogs who were quite excited to meet Bette and welcomed her to the group. Although he doesn't have a fenced in area, he does take the dogs for walks. My dog seemed to enjoy her stay! Thanks Jim!
