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 is an enthusiastic host with many years of dog care experience. He lives by a large park and the beach, so active guest dogs will get to enjoy plenty of outdoor fun during their vacay with Ben. Additionally Ben works from home and will be able to provide around the clock care and flexible pick-up/drop-off times. His sweet and easy going dog Roxy will also make the perfect companion for guest dogs during their stay. Highly recommended!

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 find a reliable, responsible, and caring dogsitter.

Ben sent me pictures throughout the day and was overall super easy. My dog had a great time!
Ben was awesome! Our boys, Teddy and Freddy were well taken care of during their stay with Ben. He sent us multiple pictures and kept us updated on their activities. Plus - he took them on numerous walks throughout the day. To say they were pooped when they got home is an understatement but it was good to see how much fun they had while staying with Ben and his pup Roxy. Ben was very accommodating to our schedule and we were able to travel stress free knowing our boys were being well taken care of.

I would definitely recommend Ben to anyone who needs a sitter for their dogs.

Ben was very flexible with pick up and drop off times and always quickly responded. He regularly checked in with me and sent photos of my pooch while I was away. I felt very comfortable with Ben watching my pooch and his little Roxie is a doll. I would highly recommend Ben and use him again in the future.

Thanks to Ben who stepped in at the last minute to take in Blaze!(our sitter had cancelled).
He was prompt in responding to our texts, knew exactly how to handle our super active dog. Loved how easily Blaze went with him and then seemed reluctant to leave! The dog park in this building is a blessing and the dogs get a ton of exercise.
I will definitely consider Ben again.

Ben did a great job, highly recommend him!
My dog Ziggy had a fabulous time with Ben C. I will absolutely send him to stay with Ben and Roxy again.
Ben was really good with Lucy, and she definitely enjoyed her time being able to play around with Roxy!
We had a great experience with Ben! He is a very nice guy and was very accomodating. He sent a lot of pictures and took our dogs to the nearest doggie park for walks. Usually I'm trying to find sitters who live in a house with backyard, however this time staying with Ben in the appartment my dogs got lots of walks and play time. And they got to sleep on the couch which I don't allow them at home. Also, his sweet doggie Roxy is just as friendly and welcoming as her owner. We'll be back!
