About Gabriel

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name's Gabriel I'm a social worker, advocate, traveler, and pet lover. I'm bilingual English and Spanish and currently residing in Atlanta, GA. My hobbies are singing, dancing, reading, and any manner of adventure sports (skiing, rafting, zip-lining, horseback riding).

My first pet was a green budgie named Luis which I received as a gift at a young age. He lived his full, happy life with his cage-mate, exceeding the average budgie lifespan. After that I was hooked and I've had all of the following pets in my life:

- Lizards (many, in the same terrarium, all lived to average lifespan or greater)
- Rats (3 rats in my family, mine was the first, he lived 3 years, one via my brother and one via my sister, we shared responsibility for the rats)
- Wally, our first family dog, a reserved medium-energy border collie mix who seemed more cat than dog. He was adopted from a local shelter and we all raised him together. He provided the foundation for my knowledge of dog-care until his passing approximately eight years ago.
- Milo, our second family dog, a stoic medium-energy Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix who is full on dog. As a rescue Milo provided a lot of challenges - poorly socialized he exhibits aggression towards other dogs, small animals, and some strangers. Proving my biggest challenge Milo has given me tons of insight into disciplining and caring for rescue animals.
- Fluffy, an energetic cockapoo with a lame leg who I'd watch, walk, feed, and care for (including getting her to the groomers and managing doggie periods!) on behalf of her owner, my aunt, while I lived with her for about a year and a half.
- Odin, a bundle of energy stray black and white cat, found in the street as a kitten in poor health. Nursed him back to health with my then-girlfriend and we raised him to be a proper gentleman. The three of us lived together for a year and she says Odin still misses me.

I've always readily accepted any requests to watch or walk the pets of friends and family. I've cared for cats and dogs, ensuring (at minimum) twice-daily walks, regular mealtimes, and plenty of playtime for dogs; clean litter, full bowls, and plenty of regular playtime (nothing beats a laser, in my experience) for cats.

I've never gotten anything but a glowing review from anyone for whom I've sat/walk and I'm sure you will not be disappointed in any way.

Gabe is what you'd call a classic "animal person." He is responsible, affectionate and very attuned to dog thoughts and feelings. He has watched my dog Percy numerous times, and I feel sure that my dog sees him as another sweet, friendly, highly socialized dog himself. I completely trust Gabe to follow directions and take excellent care of my dog when I'm away.

Gabriel is great with dogs, even difficult cases like my dog. I have rottweiler and he is not very friendly. He is aggressive with other dogs and he doesn't like some people as well. Gabriel has never had an issue with the dog and have full control over him.

I have him stayed at our house, and I can say I will always find the house just as I left it.

I find Gabriel to be an honest person and I would fully trust him with my dog and my property.
