About Ben

1 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I'm brand new to DogVacay so please give me a chance to get my foot in the door and I promise I'll do my best to leave a good impression!
I have been caring for pets in one way or another since a very young age. Both my parents' parents were dog-breeders (German Shepherds on my dad's side and Lundehunds on my mom's) and we almost always had a pet dog or two in the house. I've also cared for others' pets, both boarding and sitting, and received great feedback.. I have a deep place in my heart for animals, but dogs are undoubtedly the most special to me.
I rent my home in Koreatown with three other roommates who are very respectful and helpful and they have agreed to letting me have dogs stay here. Our home is spacious enough for a puppy or dog to not feel too cramped or stir-crazy and our neighborhood is perfect for taking walks!
A typical day for a pet in my care would include LOTS of playtime, simply because I just can't get enough of seeing a dog or puppy run around chasing a ball, playing hide and seek, tug of war, or whatever we may get into, I like to mix it up! Aside from that, frequent walks/bathroom breaks (NOT the same thing) are a guarantee, fresh food and water will always be readily available to them, and most of all, I will ALWAYS make sure they are receiving the love and attention they need and deserve. I do not plan to ever leave your pet's care, but if for whatever reason I absolutely have to step out of the house for something, I will only do so after making sure there is someone else in the house to take over who will take the responsibility seriously.
I look forward to meeting you and your pet(s)!

Ben Breines has worked for us as a pet-sitter for several years, going back as far as 2006. During that time, we have had a number of different kinds of animals: goats, horses, a steer, a dog, and several cats (both inside and outside cats), chickens, turkeys and ducks.

Ben has always been trustworthy. He has full access to our home when we are away and we have every confidence that our home and animals are in good hands. And he is patient with me. He doesn’t seem to mind a bit if I call him a few times while we are away to check in to see how things are going. I can be a nervous mom sometimes and it gives me peace to hear that everyone is eating ok and all is well…but truly, I always know that when Ben is watching the animals and house for us, everything is under control.

Ben is also very loving and caring toward the animals and I know that they are getting more than just food and water when he is watching them because he also takes the time to give them the attention they may have missed while I am away. I can tell by the reception the animals give him that he has taken his time to truly feed them emotionally as well as physically.

I highly recommend Ben as a pet-sitter and would welcome any questions or concerns you may have about allowing him to sit for your home and/or pets while you are away. When you hire Ben, I can assure you that you are truly hiring peace of mind….

Got back to me quickly! When trying to coordinate his schedule and Jackson's needs, he made sure to contact me to see what my wishes were. Loved receiving pictures of Jackson on walks and playing. Super happy about everything!
Highly recommend Ben! He has a very easy-going demeanor and I felt like my pup was in good hands. His roommates were also super down to earth and friendly too. Will definitely be using Ben again! Thanks!
Ben was greeeeat!!! He took my dog last minute and made sure to send me photo updates and keep me on track of how things were going. His roommates also played a lot with my pup to keep him entertained! I'm glad I found Ben, he has a nice and spacious house, great for pets!

Ben was a wonderful host. We will absolutely use him again. We met him for a meet & greet where Penny instantly felt comfortable with Ben. Ben stayed in our home and we couldn't feel safer knowing he was watching our girl. Thank you!
I love the emails and the all the pictures Ben sent us. Even the text messages meant so much to us you really put my mind at ease. truly the most caring sitters. My boys Teddy and Maxx are so happy in every photo. We want to thank you with all our heart for taking outstanding care of our little fuzzy faces. They are our babies. We will be back. Your the best BEN.
Oh Btw I love the yard the boys can just run crazy lol. I know the boys was in heaven
