About Bruce

Single homebody happy to care for your loved one. I have no children or other pets. Yours would have my undivided attention. I'm a huge animal lover and have very strong beliefs on the proper care and love our 4 legged babies deserve. I have been contemplating for several years now adopting another of my own, but like our human babies, I believe it's much easier for all if there is a 2 parent home. My Springer Spaniel enjoyed a loving, happy life and was never boarded. I was fortunate enough to have a best friend who was single and didn't mind house sitting with
"Mame" when I traveled. I ran across this website and immediately thought..."Now this is definitely something I'd enjoy and also be able to help out others". I'm happy to share plenty of references who will vouch for my care giving skills. I'm physically fit and have a comfortable home I'm happy to share on a short terms basis with your four legged love. I do tend spoil dogs, so it's best if you provide me with a list of "do's and don'ts". I have a fenced back yard, but your dog will enjoy one on one leashed walks in a safe community. You're pooch will be kept in doors and most likely sitting & watching TV on whatever furniture I happen to be on :-).

Bruce was AMAZING! We got married at Jekyll Island and Bruce took care of our pups over our wedding weekend. Not ONLY did Bruce do an excellent job taking care of our fur-babies but he also went out of his way to pack them up and drive them to us for pictures during the wedding! Totally above and beyond a regular dog-sitting weekend!

When we came to pick the dogs up on Sunday, I could sense how relaxed they were at Bruce's house. That really speaks volumes to me about Bruce's overall demeanor and love for animals.

Without a doubt, I would take my dogs to Bruce again and I would recommend him to anyone. He's phenomenal.

Bruce was awesome!! He helped us out of a major bind when our boarding arrangements fell through right before Thanksgiving. He was completely flexible with our drop off and pick up, and sent lots of pictures of Otis clearly having the time of his life! Not only did we not have to feel guilty about having to leave Otis behind during our family vacation, we felt GREAT knowing that he was having such a wonderful time--swimming, exploring new sights and sounds, sleeping in a bed! ;)

Great experience for Zach, and his owners, to see how well he did staying with someone other than his family. This was new for all of us and Bruce did a great job. He clearly cares for dogs and, from the outset, relieved all my concerns about Zach. I would definitely recommend him as a pet sitter.So would Zach.

We left our dog, Buster, with Bruce for a week while we left the country on vacation. Bruce made the drop-off and pick-up super easy. And he cared for our dog as if he were his own. We loved getting photos and updates while we were gone. I highly recommend Bruce, and I know for sure we will make more reservations with him in the future. Buster was a happy, spoiled dog who received lots of one-on-one attention for the duration of his stay! Thank you, Bruce.

Hi, Bruce! I had a great time and thank you for your hospitality. The walks were great and you really took good care of me. I hope to see you again on our next trip to Jekyll Island. Ella
If you need a place for your pooches to stay while you're away, Bruce is definitely the one to call. He very generously helped my husband and I out when we were in a bind and needed a place for our pups as we were passing through Brunswick and couldn't get a pet-friendly hotel. He not only kept our two poodles for the night, he opened his home late in the evening as we got into town, took the dogs on walks, sent us pictures of the dogs living it up throughout the evening, and didn't mind the early morning pick up as we made our way out of town. He was so caring with our dogs, treating them as if they were his own. If we're ever in the area again, we will definitely call on Bruce!

Bruce is absolutely awesome! If you are lucky enough to have him take care of your loved one, go buy lotto!
Really - he spoiled our Ollie - in a good way - by giving him several walks a day, making sure he had bones/ food, etc... but he also just loved on him which Ollie loves!
We were totally confident leaving Ollie with Bruce and with Bruce working less then 5 min away it is easy to work with him on dropping off or picking up. We did both during a business day when Bruce was already at work. We met him at his bank and even brought Ollie into the bank where Ollie even got doggy treats from one of the reps at the bank. Pretty cool.
He kept us updated on Ollie and sent pics of him chilling!
