About Patrick

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello fellow animal lovers!!

My name is Patrick and I am a 25-year old that absolutely loves animals. Whenever I go over to someone else's house, I usually greet their pet before the person :)
My love for animals, and dogs especially, started at a young age when I worked with my Uncle at his dog-grooming, dog-breeding, and dog-boarding service. I then begged my way into getting a yellow lab in 3rd grade.
In middle school, I started my own dog-walking and dog-sitting company in my neighborhood and received rave reviews from pets and owners alike (would be more than happy to provide a reference!)

During college, I have adopted/raised/cared for a husky mix, a black lab mix, and chow-golden retriever.
Last summer, I was a foster parent for pit bulls that would have otherwise been put down from puppies to 11 years old.

Unfortunately, I currently do not own a dog.

I am an active, caring, emotionally intelligent, intuitive person that truly connects with animals. I thoroughly enjoy being around all animals, though I admit dogs are my favorite.

I had been doing DogVacay while I lived in DC since January 2016, and I am very much enjoying the continued awesome experience where I currently reside in Richmond. Seeing that I will be home in Cleveland, OH for the Holidays I wanted to offer my services here for three weeks :) Let me highlight a couple aspects of the house as captured in my pictures:
- Spacious, sun-lit first floor
- Locking double doors between the living area and dining area/kitchen
- Bedroom with queen bed for those allowed on beds

On weekdays, I am loosely attached to my computer in my room from around 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. I take frequent breaks from the screens and will be happy to have a companion to play or just lounge.
If weekends happen to be your arrangement, I am more of a stay-at-home guy too and will be around 24/7 to provide loving care and attention to your dog.

I have experience with animals of all types, sizes, ages, and temperament. I am extremely confident I will provide your pet with the highest quality of care while you are away :)

Please reach out to me if you have any questions at all or would like to speak further about my experience and qualifications! During normal work hours (9:00 - 4:30) texting my phone (440.708.6699) or through the DogVacay message system will be the most reliable form of communication. After hours, anything will work. Thanks for reading!

Warm regards,

-Patrick

On Magy's second visit I saw Magy wagging her tail and happy to arrive at Patrick's house. She's clearly super comfortable and relaxed with him. It's so good to see that! Patrick is friendly, responsible, and easy to communicate with.
This was Magy's first visit with Patrick and everything went great!
Patrick was fabulous. He looked after my 2 dogs and house sat for 5 days (at very short notice!) over Thanksgiving whilst we were abroad.
Really professional. The dogs loved him. Nothing was too much trouble.
Dogs very happy on our return.
Couldn't be more satisfied
We will definitely be asking Patrick again

Patrick was welcoming and took great care of nala. he sent a picture every day and was available if i needed him
being the first time we left Kaiser with anyone we were very nervous. We met with Patrick a day or two before and afterwards the nervousness was gone. While we were gone Patrick texted and sent pictures which made our day during our Thanksgiving vacation. I recommend Patrick, he was very nice, very welcoming and his home was ready and waiting for Kaiser and any other four legged hairy family member to come feel at home!

Friendly and very accommodating! I would definitely recommend Patrick!
Patrick was extremely accommodating to both me and my pups before, during, and after their stay! I have a very skittish dog that was immediately calm around him. I had a lot of anxiety leading into this as they've never been with someone I didn't know, but his demeanor and updates throughout the visit set my mind at ease on my impromptu trip. They loved it there and felt at home. I couldn't ask for more from someone taking care of my girls.

Patrick was a wonderful host. Very friendly and welcoming and nice home. He lives in the perfect location for our trips down to Richmond. Patrick sent me updates on Dagny and was extremely accommodating and flexible with our schedule despite hitting bad traffic and dropping her off late. Dagny enjoyed herself and didn't look too thrilled to be coming home with us! I definitely recommend Patrick and will definitely have Dagny stay with him again.

My little buddy Termite love his stay with Patrick. Patrick is a very caring and loving friend to Termite and I know Termite will be going back the next time I have to go out of town. Patrick you're awesome! Termite told me so!

Patrick was great! He was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times, easy to communicate with and always very quick to respond. He also sent pictures and updates of Maggie. I highly recommend him and hope he is available next time. Thank you Patrick for taking such good care of my baby girl!

Patrick always takes such good care of our boxer Cheyenne; so much that she doesn't want to leave him when it's time to pick her up! Patrick is very responsive and sends numerous check-in photos and videos throughout each stay. We'll continue to use him for boarding!
