About Brian

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My rates reflect caring for: 2 Dogs; 1 Dog/1 Cat; 2 Cats...

*Member Pet Sitters International
*Privately Insured and Bonded

For 17 years I have treated all my dogs as if they were my children and I will happily do the same for yours. I have owned Very Large dogs: Irish Wolfhound, Labrador, Bouvier-Mix, Weimeramer/Wolfhound mix and as small as a Terrier. I have owned rescues and pure breeds of various temperaments and am experienced with dogs that are not trusting. I also have extensive experience with post-surgical dogs and their special needs. I am coyote tested and carry both a whistle and air horn and remain calm but on the offensive, which is very important.

What You Can Expect From Me: When we first meet I will introduce myself to your pet(s) and make him, her or them feel comfortable in my presence so we can begin a connection. I will then take thorough notes on your instructions and expectations during your time away so I will be replicating their normal day to keep them comfy. I take photos of your dogs on our walks and send them to you to keep you close in your absence along with a brief review of our walk including energy level and stool condition. I have strong leash control and will always be aware of any neighborhood ‘trigger-dogs’ you describe as well as any of your dogs personal quirks. They will eat on time and I will keep them engaged (minimizes separation anxiety) and I will always be available if you need to check in by text or phone. When you return you will think you never left.

Personal: I was born in California and raised and schooled in the Newport Beach/Costa Mesa/Irvine area before finishing my schooling at USC. I was raised with animals (cats and a rabbit) but fell in love with dogs many years ago and have had multiple dogs for each of the past 17 years. You will find me to be punctual, considerate and trustworthy and respectful of you and your pets. I do this because I love being in the presence of animals!

I know choosing who to care for your pets is a big decision. It is for me. But, if you reach out and contact me, I will make it my business to set your mind at ease by becoming THE trusted source for the care of your dogs for now and the foreseeable future. Let’s talk.

Brian is quite the professional. He arrived on time, was very compassionate with my dogs, even to the point of getting down at their level to bond and communicate with them.
They had a great walk together!
I would recommend Brian to anyone who is looking for a kind and compassionate person to sit or walk their dogs.
