About Robert

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi!

I grew up with several dogs and have a lot of experience taking care of them. I've been watching dogs through DogVacay for over a year. My work schedule is very flexible, so it's likely I can meet your dog walking, daycare, and boarding needs.

I have a house in South Philly. There is plenty of space for indoor fun and a very small backyard for sitting outside. I promise a minimum of 3 walks per day (two 15 minute, and one half-hour plus). There is a dog park a few blocks away. Most days, I work from home, and I won't leave your dog alone for more than 4 hours per full day stay, and never more than 6 hours on the days I work away from home.

I will add 20–25% for dogs under 16 months, dogs who are big and slobbery, and dogs who can't be kept with other dogs. Sorry to discriminate, but I've found some dogs are a lot more work than others!

I look forward to meeting you and your dog!

This is the third time Ive used Rob to sit for my pit Barker. I know that Rob takes good care of him, Barker comes home relaxed as though he just spent a week at Club Med.
I know my boy is in good hands and I recommend Rob to anyone in need of a responsible sitter.
Thank you Rob, see you again soon.

Robert was very thorough in learning about Juno, he took her to the dog park and sent plenty of photos while we were away. He was a great communicator, I think we'll use his services again. Thanks Robert.
Robert was great and our dog, Nigel, seemed to really enjoy his stay! We got plenty of pictures during the weekend and we knew that Nigel was happy and well cared for. When we showed up at the end of the weekend to pick him up, he was tired out and seemed completely comfortable and content staying with Robert. I will definitely book with Robert again.
