About Chad

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Chad, and I live in a nice little loft in downtown LA with my girlfriend, Sarah,and 1 year old Boston Terrier named Doug.

We're lucky enough to live central to a lot of different areas, meet lots of different dogs, and benefit from the fact that I work from home as a music composer, so the dogs will be given plenty of attention. I work very quietly and am very careful to make sure I don't disturb the dogs. It's also worth mentioning that my apartment isn't huge, so I can only accommodate one extra dog (small or medium) at a time, at least for now. I have also watched and fostered some cats in the past, so that is an option if your cat is very relaxed and would be comfortable with a 1 year old puppy.

Doug and I go on walks 4-5 times a day, and aside from that, he's a very relaxed couch potato. He's a really friendly goof, and I've taken great care in raising him to be a polite, social, happy little guy, and he's been doing great. I want to take the same care in making sure your dog has a nice time hanging out with us. Sometimes on the weekends, we also like to take trips to places like Elysian, Griffith, or Pacific Palisades to get the dogs and ourselves some fresh air.

We would love to provide the following:
- Daycare any day of the week
- Overnights any day of the week
- Plenty of walks while they're visiting
- If you live downtown, I can walk over and pick up your pup

We're all excited to meet you all, people and dogs alike!

Chad’s loft is centrally located in Downtown LA, a great option for the growing dog-owner community in that area. He always had dogs as a kid and was a petsitter for friends and family growing up in Maine.

Chad works at home so your pup will have supervision and companionship. Plus, his adorable Boston Terrier, Doug, has a larger-than-life personality and will be good canine company for your pooch!

Chad has already started looking after dogs in his building and would love to add your pup to his roster of furry vacationers!
Chad (and his delightful girlfriend, Sarah) was the best petsitter I have ever had! My dogs and cat were so happy when I was away that I'm pretty sure they wished Chad & Sarah could take care of them forever! Chad regularly sent over photos & updates while my pets were in his care, so I never had to worry that they were safe, happy, and healthy. And when I returned after my 12 day trip, my home was left in a far cleaner condition than I had left it in! Not only did they care for my pets, but for my home too! Chad definitely went above and beyond to care for my pets and I could not be more grateful. Thank you!!
Chad is wonderful! My dog is not easy to sit (she's very anxious) and he is kind and patient with her. He also makes recommendations (It's always good to get a different perspective on your dog's sometimes baffling behavior!). He responds quickly, remains in touch and is just an all-around great guy. He has sat my dog at my home twice and is very careful and respectful in all regards. I am very fortunate I found Chad to watch my Khaleesi when I am away.
Chad was great! He was so flexible and accommodating. I accidentally booked the wrong weekend and he was able to accommodate Barkley without a problem. He sent me pictures of Barkley while we were away and it looked it he was having a great time!
Chad was a great sitter for Charlotte during our weekend trip! He was very accommodating with pick up/drop off, and was very responsive overall. His place is great for a few small dogs, and Charlotte really seemed comfortable with him and Doug during her stay. Chad made sure to send lots of pictures and updates, so I felt reassured that she was having a great time. I'd definitely recommend Chad as a host and we'll be booking with him in the future!
Chad did a great job with our puppy who's still being house broken, etc! Thanks.
I've left Hamlet with Chad and Doug several times now and never worry that he's taken care of. Chad is really fast about responding and awesome with Ham. ????
I HEART CHAD & SO DOES CARMEN!!! Chad and his girlfriend took great care of my dog and sent me so many wonderful pictures to let me know that Carmen was enjoying herself. Very much appreciated!!
I felt so comfortable leaving Pearl with Chad and Doug. Chad is very knowledgable about dogs and has trained Doug to be a perfect gentlemen. Pearl was very happy and content in Chads care!!
