About Patrick

Hi, I love animals. I grew up with Golden Retrievers and have had cats, gerbils, turtles and even a chicken at one point. I have two senior cats that have been with me since college. They have lived with dogs off an on during their lives. One recently was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, so we had the effected leg removed and she's doing great. When out around town I can't stop myself from trying to get any dog or cat's attention. If they're there I am inclined to pet it. As far as pet sitting experience goes, I grew up with pets, as a kid wanted to be a vet, went to SPCA camp (as thrilling as it sounds) and occasionally watch my exes dog (my old pooch, Wally) for weekend trips. While I didn't grow up to be vet, my love for animals of all types remains. I have a pretty substantial yard where we can play catch and get some off leash time. As far as my schedule, I recently transitioned from a full time photography position at an antique auction gallery to freelance, so I work from home a lot. I thought DogVacay would be a great opportunity to spend time with dogs who could keep me company while i'm working. I usually take a run in the evening, but this would give me an excuse to take breaks throughout the day and get out of the house on some nice, additional walks myself. When i'm watching my old dog, we usually head down the Lafitte Greenway, around Bayou St. John and into City Park. He has a membership to City Bark, so we go there and mingle with the other pups. He's great with other animals and my cats. I have a nice, cozy place for your buddy to call home for the day or long weekend. I still have a nice big dog bed for animals to curl up on and provide healthy (but tasty!) treats. I'm up for doing some minor grooming and the occasional bath. I'd love to offer up my place for your pup, and I'll do my best to provide a welcoming environment and update you regularly while away from you. Take a look at the pictures of my place, some of my oldest cat and my old dog, Wally. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Patrick was super with my pups, and they adored their time with him. I felt very comfortable having him come over and hang with my best furry friends. I will definitely be calling on him again.
Patrick stayed at our house for 7 nights to take care of our 2 young pups. He is very responsible and detail oriented and was very invested in making sure he had all necessary info about our 2 dogs. He took good notes when he came to meet them, and even better care of the dogs and our house. He sent daily updates and pics and we could tell our dogs really liked him and felt comfortable with him. We would 100% entrust him with the care of our dogs and home again. I HIGHLY recommend him for all your pet sitting needs!!

Patrick was a great host for Wheezy - it was my first time leaving her alone, and he made me feel comfortable leaving her in his care. He checked in on her often and took her on long walks to burn off her puppy energy. I appreciated the photos and updates he sent to let me know she was happy and well cared for. I'd definitely ask him to keep an eye on her for future trips.
