About Giovan

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Gio. I have a lot of experience caring for, walking, and playing with dogs of all breeds and sizes. My experience ranges from dog-sitting for friends and family as well as caring for my own. I also grew up with cats and have experience caring for them. I'm an extremely flexible pet-sitter; for example, if your dog is used to sleeping in the bed with you I'll be prepared to accommodate this arrangement, or, if they're crate-trained / sleep in their own bed, I'll be prepared for this situation too.

I'll be mindful of you and your loved one's (your dog's) daily routine (i.e. playing with toys, going out at certain times, certain games they like to play, etc.) and do my best to be a fun and consistent dog sitter.

Keep in mind, I am not a dog-trainer, but if you have certain rules and/or behaviors you'd like me to pay special attention to, I can do that too (i.e. sitting before treats, no begging, etc.).

Being the owner of a hyper curious and energetic dog, I'm great at keeping dog-walks focused while factoring in some time for dogs to sniff and explore. As you'll see in my photographs, I love going on hikes with dogs, so if you're into that I know some good spots to take them.

If I give your dog a bath, I'll be taking them to Petfood Express, unless you're uncomfortable with that, in which case I can do the bath at home.

This all goes for cats as well, except for bathing them.

And no need to worry, I will not attempt to teach your dogs or cats how to skateboard (probably) ;)

Part owner of a corgy-chow chow, Gio's gentle, considerate, and incredibly responsible with dogs, and an honest, sweet guy when it comes to humans.

Giovan's as dependable as they come. And he's great with dogs!

A few weekends ago, I had Giovan look after my boarder collie, Pat, who can be quite demanding, and he took care of her with no issues whatsoever. I don't usuaully trust people to look after my boarder collie, but Giovan was fit for the task.

Highly recommend!

Giovan has taken care of my previous older, grumpy, larger dog, as well as my current tiny rescue dogs. He is smart, creative, trust worthy, resourceful and kind. Communication is key when working with a pet sitter, and Giovan is an excellent communicator! Reliability is also key, and he is extremely reliable. I've known him for many years and absolutely trust him with my pets and my home!

Giovan was awesome with our three Siberian Huskies. We received several photo/video updates from him and he was super communicative throughout. We will definitely have Giovan back when we're traveling.
My two little guys,Max and Milo, took to Giovan immediately. Giovan seems to have that natural sense of how to engage and communicate with the dogs. He is patient and warm and clearly enjoyed being with Max and Milo. Giovan impressed me his good nature, clear communication and responsibility. I will use him to take care of Max and Milo in the future.

Gio was a great sitter! My girls had a great time with him while he stayed in my home. I left him very specific instructions which he followed to a T. He sent great pictures of the girls having fun so I never worried. I would use him again in a heartbeat.
