About Russell

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a proud owner of two dogs: a french bulldog and a rhodesian/pit mix. They are both rescues and I love them so much. I'm a lover of all dog types and sizes. My wife and I both work from home most days so someone is generally here with the dogs at all hours. We have a crate and we can section off parts of the house if your dog has any special needs/requests. We usually let our dogs sleep in the bed with us about 3-4 times per week and the rest of the time they are downstairs in their beds. We are happy to welcome your dog(s) in our bed, too if they need the extra love and affection.

We have a patio area that is fenced off with a bed and the dogs can lay out there in the sun when it is warm enough. Our dogs LOVE laying in the sun. We live in a gated condo community so the dogs are walked on a leash; however, we also have a dog park in the community where we take the dogs once per day.

If it's the weekend and the weather is nice, we would be more than happy to take your dogs on a hike with us.

Our dogs generally switch between dog food and fresh cooked rice/chicken so we are happy to accommodate special dietary requests.

I had a work trip on short notice and Russell was able to jump in and check in on my two Minpins for a few days.

I received a couple of photo updates during the trip as well as a few messages from Russell about their status. He commented on their updates during the trip as well as a few messages from Russell about their status. He commented on their behavior and eating habits, took them for walks and got them to run around a bit in the back yard.

I would use Russell's services again if needed, hopefully with a bit more notice next time!

Russell was a wonderful sitter for our dog Millie! Our usual sitter bailed at the last minute and Russell came through less than 48 hours before we left town. He was more than accommodating while he had our sweet girl, he sent photos and daily left town. He was more than accommodating while he had our sweet girl, he sent photos and daily updates on what she had been doing (including going on a hike!) I would recommend Russell to anyone looking for a sitter. Admittedly I was nervous because I had never left Millie with anyone I didn't know before, but Russell made this a very easy experience for us. I would definitely use him again!
