About Ian

I live in the heart of the Mission-Dolores neighborhood, surrounded by a peaceful uber dog -friendly community.

My 800 sqft apartment + back patio is spacious enough for a medium sized dog to explore, and we live a fairly minimalist lifestyle so there is plenty of safe floorspace to explore. We keep a variety of healthy doggy treats in stock (to be given at owner's discretion), toys to play with, and are mindful of current pet safety information.

It's always fun to explore an individual dog's personality, so I am always up for taking a walk or playing games in Dolores Park, which is only a few blocks away.

Let me know what your buddy's needs are and I promise that I will do my best to accomodate.

He doted on my sweet girl - lots of walks and pictures.
First time for Abby and Ian did an amazing job making her feel comfortable. Abby was sad to leave and come home after all the fun with Ian and friends.
I have to admit that this review is long overdue, especially considering what an awesome job Ian did with my little guy. Donny had only ever stayed with my parents, but I recently moved here from a far away land and was in a pinch. Not having a back up plan in place, Ian came through last minute and saved the weekend by taking Donny in and making him happy and comfortable. I highly recommend Ian's services; he kept me up to date with pics and texts all weekend long and Donny was happy, safe, and (best of all) walked and tired when I got back!
Ian is great! Picked up my pup last night after a 12 night stay and he is happy, healthy and looks like he has been very well taken care of. This was the first time we left our dog for such a long time. Ian sent many image updates and responded rapidly to our emails. I have found my go-to person for when I have to leave my dog in the future.
Ian was wonderful! He was flexible with our arrival as our schedule was jammed packed. He took excellent care of my girls.
Ian did a really great job! He communicated really well and gave me updates and photos the whole trip. I was really comfortable leaving my dog with him for the weekend.
This is the second time that Sampson has stayed with Ian and once again he had a fantastic time! We were going out of town and needed a dogsitter at the last minute and Ian was very flexible and accomodating. He's very attentive to Samspon and sends us great updates and pics daily. We'll definitely have Sampson stay with Ian again!
Our dogs had a great time with Ian and his roommate - they've been sleeping since they got home! Ian was really accommodating and clearly loves dogs, and from the daily photos we got we knew our pups were well taken care of and were happy. We definitely appreciate the flexibility and regular communication about the stay, and would definitely book with Ian again!
Second time I used Ian. He was fantastic and Sadie seemed to have a blast. A great go-to guy for watching your pup!
We have boarded our 86 pound black lab girl.
Ian agreed meeting us with a very short notice.
When we first met, from the first minute, we could see that Ian and his girlfriend really like dogs. Our Grizzly is shy but she felt pretty much like at home from the beginning.
Ian sent us pictures during our vacation.
We have missed our connection flight home so we had to leave Grizzly for 1 more night with 2 hours notice and Ian was glad to help us with that.
When we got Grizzly back we could see that she had a great time!
We will for sure leave Grizzly with Ian next time we'll have to.
Ian is very responsive and took great care of our two dogs. He also sent photos while we were
on vacation. Our dogs are going to miss
Ian because he is so friendly and fun.
We give Ian the highest marks, from the canine and human viewpoint. You will be very happy if you choose Ian to care for your dog.
Sampson had a great time with Ian! He came how happy and tired. Ian took great care of him - Sampson really enjoyed the trips to the park. Ian was also great about accomodating my last minute reservation! Thanks Ian!
Ian was fantastic! He made sure I felt completely comfortable before leaving Zoila with him. He sent me plenty of pictures of her and responded to all my texts in a prompt matter.
Ian was very nice, helpful, and communicative, and seemed to get along really well with my dog. He was very helpful, even on short notice, and awesomely sent me pictures of my dog in the middle of the day! Looked like they were having fun :].
