About Jean-Philippe

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Full-Time Loving Pet Care in the Comfort of Your Home (20 to 24 hrs/day presence)

4 nights/5 days minimum.

Because above all else your cherished pet companions desire precisely that: company!

As a 47yr old male with a homey, grounded, quiet lifestyle, I spend the vast majority of the time with the animals in the comfort of your home to the enjoyment of all. More often than not I will stay home all day.

Clients know me for great ease and affection for animals. Maybe it is my many years of experience (over 10 years in the Santa Fe area), or maybe just an innate and instinctual understanding of the animals and their needs. Both I believe. It certainly shows in my everyday interactions with them and makes me well-suited for the loving care that your pets deserve.

The home entrusted to my care equally receives conscientious, professional attention. This includes a respectful attitude toward it and a leave-no-trace ethic.

Peace of mind and overall satisfaction with my services in turn ensure many loyal, consistently returning customers. For the level of services I provide, my rates, I believe, are reasonable.

• 21 to 24 hrs/day presence (including of course full overnights). Thus your pets experience no abandonment issue and remain anxiety-free.
• They remain at all times comfortable and in their familiar environment.
• They receive loving care and attention throughout the day.
• I come to know them very fast and thus quickly familiarize myself with their individual quirks and needs.
• Their customary routine and schedule is effortlessly followed.

• Safety and security of your home is assured: my presence simply the best crime deterrent there can be!
• A respectful attitude toward it and leave-no-trace ethic.
• My competent attention to your home (please note: non-technical only) ensures its smooth maintenance.

We have used Jean-Philippe's services to house and dog sit many times. He is wonderful with our two young, active dogs and gives them fantastic care. Our house is also always in great shape when we get home. We highly recommend him.
Christine & Aron S.

With no children, our two small dogs are our family, and Jean-Philippe cares for them as such. He is caring, conscientious, reliable, and spends most of his time with them. Upon returning, we find our dogs happy and our home in tip-top shape.
Terry & Linda R.

We have been using Jean-Philippe's services for several years. We've always been satisfied with the care he gives to our dog, Lola, as well as his respectful treatment of our home.
Nancy & Fred S.

Jean-Phillippe is a wonderful pet-sitter. He is reliable, honest and trustworthy. The dogs love him. Neat, timely and self-sufficient, you can depend on him to leave your home as he found it when you departed. He will leave you with happy pets. I give him 4 stars!
Alley M. & Casey

Jean-Philippe has been easy to book, very flexible, and easy to communicate with. He has kept my home clean and my pet well taken care of. I am planning on using his service again.
Denise H.

Jean-Philippe provides a pet & house sitting service that is exactly as advertised - professional in every respect ? and that we highly recommend.
Genevieve & Randolph L.

My wife and I have had Jean-Philippe sit our home, dog, and cat frequently. Our dog has separation anxiety and needs someone to be with her 80% of the time. So we like that he can devote most of his time at the house with our pets and do recommend him for that.
Howard & Karen B.

My dog is in love with a Frenchman. I'm not sure if it's his accent or that she just adores the fact that he spends all day talking to her, petting her, playing with her and spoiling her in every way. All I know is that she loves her vacation with him when we take our vacation.
Patricia P.

I would highly recommend Jean-Philippe to anyone who needs dependable, loving care for their animals. My dog loves him and I leave knowing that she will receive the tender loving care that I would give her myself. He is a delightful person to deal with, so my dog and I are BOTH happy.
Mary Ann S.

Jean-Philippe took care of my dog and elderly cat for a week. He made himself available for an extra prior visit so that we could break the ice with my stand-offish cat, sent text updates every couple of days (which I appreciated) and both animals were in good spirits upon my return. I recommend him as a responsible caregiver whom the animals loved.
Lisa R.

Jean Philipe has sat for my two dogs many times. They are always so happy to see him and sad to see him go. He will take great care of your animals.

Jean-Philippe took excellent care of both Katy and our house. He followed all of my instructions to a "T", and I came home to a very happy dog. JP spends most of his day in the house, so Katy had many hours of company, which she is used to when I'm here. He also did the few daily chores I asked of him - i.e., picking up our mail, and feeding our fish.
