About Craig

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! If you feel your dogs are family members that deserve nothing but the best in life, we already share something in common!

I'm a terminal animal lover and extremely passionate about animal husbandry and care. I've been around animals most of my life - I grew up with dogs, cats, chickens, snakes & lizards, hamsters, and all other kinds of critters (my mom was a science teacher - we practically had a zoo at times). I've fostered and adopted multiple dogs (successfully) over the past 6 years while caring for my own. In 2015, my fiancé and I spent over 2 1/2 months in Africa volunteering on animal conservation and rehabilitation projects; we worked extensively with lions, elephants, rhinos, baboons, cheetahs, and many other native species. My fiancé and I are also both experienced exotic wild animal trainers - we've both worked with fully grown tigers, lions, grizzly bears, one leopard, and one wolf at a company that contracts for film and television.

A typical day at our home begins early and ends late. For the early risers (like me), I provide:
- playtime inside our gated backyard and/or playtime in the grassy front yard (not gated)
- leash neighborhood walks
- training/games (see Training rates)

Depending on the tides and weather, I typically take my dogs out between 10-4 pm for one LONG adventure at one of the many spectacular dog-friendly parks or beaches in the area. I promise you - your dog WILL be tired and loving life after this. During these treks, we:
- play fetch with chuck it & ball (or other toys you provide)
- play hide and seek (depending on location)
- go swimming in the ocean (depending on season/temperature)
- give lots of love!!!

For those dogs (like my puppy) who don't understand the concept of 'being tired', I will repeat my morning games/walks/training on an as needed basis. Special rates may apply depending on the dog and their needs.

We believe in providing our animals structure, stimulation, exercise, and lots (and LOTS) of love. A tired dog is a happy dog, and here at Executive Dog, we pride ourselves on our 100% satisfaction guarantee. IF you or your dog aren't completely satisfied with the experience, we'll give a full refund and a complimentary day of daycare or room and board as our way of making it up to you.

Craig did an absolute wonderful job taking care of my 3 dogs. He walked them 2 hours per day (who else does that??!!) because he noticed their high energy demeanor and thought it would help them settle down. It certainly did and I only have him to thank for it. They came home well exercised, well loved and they definitely had a better time than I did.
