About Derek

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been caring for dogs since I was a kid. I have experience with many different breeds and I'm the guy people ask when they have a question about their pups. I can't remember a time when I didnt love animals. Dogs have always been my best friends and an important part of my life. I've yet to meet a dog that I can't get along with. I've come across difficult dogs, no doubt. But it's all about how you communicate with them. I seem to understand them and in turn, they understand me. I genuinely care for them and I feel like they know. I don't cut corners when it comes to caring for my pets or anyone else's pets. I'm responsible, reliable and trustworthy. If you're looking for someone to watch your pups with the same kind of love and care that you have for them, I'm your guy. It's not all about the money with me. Giving owners the satisfaction of peace of mind is a reward in itself!

Derek was great. He took great care of our furry family and followed our regular routines. He sent photo updates and is always quick to respond during booking or while we are away.
Derek was great (as per usual). Him taking care of my two dogs (who have very different energy levels, health issues, and personalities) and giving me regular updates gave me peace of mind and really let me enjoy my weekend getaway. And my pups are big fans of Derek as well and always happy to see him and hang with him. I've already booked Derek to dogsit for three more upcoming trips!

Derek was great - this was actually the result of me getting stuck in Austin and frantically asking if I could extend my reservation one day, he was very cool about it and put my mind at ease right away. Thanks Derek!
