About Ben

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My puggle Roxy and myself welcome your pet(s) into our home to be under our watchful care. Working from home allows me the luxury to be around my dog as well as your dog(s) all day/night with big fields in front of my residence for building residents and their dogs to roam and play. Right across the street are Benton Harbor and Montrose dog beaches in addition to various parks and trails. The care never ends here! I grew up with a White Wolf/Husky so I am used to big dogs. Roxy wants to be the lead alpha dog even if she is the smaller one, but she's the most playful and enjoyable dog to have around. We will make sure your pet is taken care of in the same manner as you tend to it.

*****NO RESERVATION REQUESTS WILL BE APPROVED WITHOUT A MEET-n-GREET PRIOR TO YOUR DOG(s) STAY.*****

2-3 walks per day for 30-45 minutes (Morning, Afternoon, Evening), or play time out front w/ other building dogs

* 4-5 potty breaks outside per day

Please bring any toys and food/water bowls your pets may need, or anything that will make them feel more at ease.

***If your profile is NOT up-to-date w/ dog(s) vaccines, flea prevention, emergency contact information, PLEASE bring that with you during initial Meet-N-Greet***

***If you have a puppy that is not yet potty trained/house trained, all cleaning potty pads and training materials need to be supplied by the OWNER***

Ben was very responsive, sent pictures throughout the day and was willing to change the pickup time at short notice. Thank you so much!! Ginnie had a great time!
I've been relying on Ben to sit with my favorite wiggle-worm for the past couple of months. He is flexible with scheduling issues, he is friendly, and he is a true dog lover. I would recommend him whole-heartedly any time to anyone who needs to and he is a true dog lover. I would recommend him whole-heartedly any time to anyone who needs to find a reliable, responsible, and caring dogsitter.
