About Matt

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Having made a living as a dog-sitter / walker for five years and counting, I think it's fair to say that I'm a professional -- more than that, I think I've found my calling!

I have worked with dogs of every size and disposition, and I've also helped those who have had serious medical issues. The bulk of my career has been spent in New York City, but I recently moved back to San Diego, which was my home for ten years, and I know it well!

Working exclusively out of your home (as my current building doesn't permit canines), I will be able to maintain your routine all the more effectively. In fact, I bet that if we could ask our furry friends, they'd express a strong preference for having me come to them -- doing so means that my focus is solely on your pooch or pooches, and my attention is diverted by nothing other than the occasional house-related task (i.e. collecting the mail, feeding the fish), which I provide at no additional cost, of course!

Aside from sits, I am also available for in-home daycare and walks! So, just let me know what you need, and I'll send you a custom quote ASAP.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Matt is great! My dogs are older and require special care and extra attention so having him stay at my house while I am gone couldn't work any better.
Matt took great care of our pups and our bird while we were on our honeymoon! I would highly recommend him. Great communication and he even sent us photo updates.
Matt was great! He made us feel very comfortable leaving our 2 large dogs with him. Our 90 pound dog had recently been in a bad dog fight and needed to have meds and special attention while we were gone, Matt had no problem with this. I was very happy with his great service and will definitely be using him again in the future! Thanks Matt!
