About King

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is King . I'm a dog lover. I love designing. I work as an interior and Graphic designer and also Photographer, but I work mostly at home, so I get to be around my dogs all day.

I've been a dog-lover my whole life .I grew up loving and caring for all dogs. I have always had dogs at my side .There was never a time we didn't have dogs growing up. I have been watching other people's pets for a few years now and love every second of it! So there is no need to worry about your "aggressive" breed I love them too!

Last year, I began doing a lot of the daily dog walks. I enjoy so much meeting new clients and their pets. I promise that I always love and care for your dog as if the/she was my own.I am patient and loving and believe gentleness goes a long way with animals. I promise that I will put my best effort forward in caring for your pet while you are away. I don’t believe anyone could love and care for them more than me while you are gone. Being around with dogs always bring joy into my life. I always believe they are the best stress reliever. So, Drop your lovely dog off at my place for a day of fun.

I Love dogs
I Spoil dogs
I Treat dogs
Lets set up a meet and greet today! :)

Looking for someone to take your dog out while you are at work or on vacation? I am available!! I can't wait to meet you and your babies!!

Everything went as expected! Will definitely use again!
King was great! He took excellent care of our dog and made us feel extra comfortable since it was our first time a at from our dog. We will definitely use him again!
King was absolutely wonderful with our pets. He provided daycare for two dogs and one cat. While two of the three pets are pretty low maintenance, one is very tentative with new people - she's hidden under our bed from dog walkers in the past. King provided a free meetup before the scheduled pet boarding day so the pets could get acclimated to him. He was patient and skilled with our timid dog, Skyler and was able to work with her until she felt comfortable. I'd definitely recommend King for dog sitting!

King was an excellent dog-sitter for my senior dachshund, Nico. Nico is a rescue who has difficulty meeting new people and dogs which can sometimes result in aggression. King knew how to handle her intake and it was a remarkably short period of time before she settled in. King sent many photos and videos over my week long absence which was greatly appreciated! It was clear when I picked her up that she had a great time and she slept quite solidly afterward because of all the fun she had. I highly recommend King, especially for dogs that require a seasoned handler. He's really the best!

King is communicative--he sent a number of videos and photos each day. He seems experienced and sweet with dogs--he let Rex take his time getting comfortable. He is very flexible and available--he seems to be available whenever you need him, and also offered to pick up and drop off Rex even when I wasn't home, for no extra cost. He seems to give his guests lots of time and attention. He did have about 5 other small to medium sized dogs staying with him as well, which might not be ideal for some dogs/parents, but he sent me several videos and photos of Rex surrounded by the other dogs, and Rex seemed at ease. He also seems to be home a lot with the dogs. I am booking with him again for Christmas. King is especially great with last minute and holiday bookings, but note that the price is $60 for holidays.

King was very communicative and sent regular picture and video updates. Our pup seemed to have a great time and was thoroughly tired out when we brought him back home. Thank you!
King was great. He sent frequent videos and my dog came home happy. We would definitely use again.
Rex, my 11 year old german shepherd, boarded with King for about a week and a half, while i was traveling abroad. I got daily photos and videos from King, and Rex always looked like he was very relaxed and having a good time. Sometimes when i travel and he boards somewhere, he gets anxious and does not eat as much as he normally does and looks skinnier when I pick him back up - but his diet seems to have been pretty normal during this stay and he looked good. When I picked him up, I got the sense he was very well taken care of during his stay. I would certainly consider using King again in the future - he clearly loves and understands dogs.

King was great! So good with animals, and send loads of pics and videos I really enjoyed. I'd book him again in a heart beat.
This review is for dog walking/ check-ins, King was the absolute best. He was very reliable and great with my dog Cece. It was great to know Cece was so well taken care of!
King was great He sent me over 60 pics/videos in the 5 days he took care of my puppy and responded right away to any txt I sent him I was nervous about leaving Hogan for 5 days cuz he's only 5 months old and this was the first time. He was so happy there that he didn't want to leave I highly recommend King!! .!

King did a great job taking care of my dog, Hodor. He kept in touch and updated me through out Hodor's stay. He was very fast to response as well.
King was great! He sent many, many picture and video updates while we were away. Muffin was sad to leave, and was exhausted after her exciting weekend!
King was an excellent sitter for our two pups. He was very responsive and sent us lots of great pics and videos of them playing. One of our dogs is a rescue and very very shy, but took treats from him right away. We were very happy and took home two very tired pups after our trip. I am going to book with King again soon!

We are thrilled with King and the Loads of photos and videos while we were away! He walked them to the Washington Monument on Memorial weekend. Great guy and terrific dog sitting! We would recommend highly!
King was an amazing host for Bailey! Easy and fun is best way to describe his stay. After dropping Bailey off for a 4 day business trip, King would send over video and picture updates around the clock. This little touch of his made me less anxious and more confident about leaving our pup for so long. When we came back home and picked him up from King's, Bailey was barely able to keep his eyes open. Completely exhausted from all the fun he had! He slept for the next day straight! Which was great for us coming back from business and needing a little rest as well. I would absolutely recommend a stay with King and will be "vacaying" with him again!

King was great with my two pups and I was very happy with the experience. He was very good about sending pics throughout their stay and was very responsive. The pickup and dropoff were both very easy. I highly recommend and will definitely use him again!

King did a great job with our dog Sabine! We got a ton of pictures each day and even video. I definitely felt like he cared for her and treated her like one of his own. I would definitely book King in the future : )
We picked a great host for our first experience with DogVacay. King was kind and warm with our dog, and Junior really enjoyed being part of a "pack" that was very well-controlled but also joyous. We appreciated his flexibility with timing and also the great videos and photos he posted.

King is one of the absolute best sitters in DC. I've seen reviews of him on other pet sitting sites and seems like everyone, myself and my pups LOVES King. Coco and Fluffy had a wonderful thanksgiving break with his pup's and King went beyond the usual sitters. Plenty of photo/video updates, making sure I was updated with my pup's daily routines. King is EXTREMELY FLEXIBLE, KIND, & nice about everyone. Since I booked for a holiday stay, he made things so much more less stressful and made sure my pups had the best care during it.

Thank you King, and I'll definitely be back very very soon! I'm actually already planning their next stay haha.

King was great! He sent tons of pictures and our dog seemed very happy and relaxed in all of them. He took her for lots of walks, to the dog park, and let her play in his great yard. Our dog, Mel, had so much fun with him she didn't even want to leave when we came to pick her up!
