About Peter

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Anyone who knows me would know how passionate I am about dogs. Even those who do not know me and see me in the street would see that I would cross the street at the sight of a day and make sure to greet my new-found friend! I am the owner of dogs (for over 15 years) and have experience in dog training. My two dogs have actually received rewards as "most obedient" and "best vocal". I also have a certificate in Animal Rights from Germany, and am an active spokesperson for animal rights, especially dogs.
With my deep care and patience with dogs, I would interact with the dogs that I come across as my buddies. I have learned dog psychology and am a true believer that with the right training, no dog would be violent. My training is hence targeted towards non-violent behavior, and in making pets feel calm and comfortable. I am also physically active and love to walk, so I would make sure to take the dogs out on multiple walks (and runs, too) in the neighborhood (Philadelphia Center City Area). I am organized, responsible and have leadership skills, and I focus on ensuring that the dogs are at their best behavior when at home or outdoors.
Note: I am happy to do cat-sitting as well!

Peter was so amazing and took such great care of our dog, clearly showing how interested he was in him! We would definitely book him again!
My dog, Bear, is incredibly picky with new people and just loved Peter! He was great with him and very flexible with his schedule, and met Bear before the dates he watched him. He walked him multiple times a day and sent pictures to keep us updated on Bear and how he was doing. Overall it was a great experience and we would definitely have him watch our German Shepherd again!

Bella was happily tired when she got home from a day with Peter! She was an only dog there which was good for her. Peter sent us texts and pictures during the day, and was very flexible with last-minute minor changes. Thanks, we will def use him again!

Was very nice and professional. Ghost seemed to love him and have a great time!
Peter was great with both of our dogs. His place is small but he takes them out multiple times a day so they still have a chance to burn off energy.
Peter is great. He is always accommodating with last minute bookings, which is really helpful for me because I have an erratic work schedule. My little Mickey loves spending time with him! He always comes home tired after a long day of playing and walking! When we run into Peter in the neighborhood, or pass his building, Mickey goes crazy with excitement. Peter is my go-to dogsitter.

Peter was super communicative and very sweet to our 6 month old pup Juno. She had a great time and he even worked on teaching her some new tricks. He sent us many photos and videos during our time away and we felt soothed knowing she was with an experienced caretaker. Thanks Peter!

Peter did a great job taking care of Harley. I felt confident that he would keep Harley out of trouble while in his care. He is a herding breed and requires specialty knowledge.

When it came time to go home, Harley was clearly very attached to his new friend, Peter. I could tell that Harley got plenty of exercise because he was exhausted and in such a good mood. We feel lucky to have met an excellent caretaker for our dog and plan to use Peter's services again.

It took our dog a day after she came home to return to herself, but I think that is the nature of our dog. One thing I would have liked to have known ahead of time is that his place is very small.
Peter was an excellent care taker of my pup. Eve stayed the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Peter updated me with pictures while I was away and kept me informed of everything. I will definitely be using his services again.
Peter was very easy to communicate with and sent pictures of my dog while I was away. I think my dog had a good time with Peter and enjoyed their walks to the park.
Bean came home happy and tired - Peter sent great updates and pictures throughout Bean's vacay! Peter was overall very repsonive and seemed to "get" Bean from when he first met him.
My dog Axel loves Peter! He is a great sitter.
Pete was very responsive and sent pictures everyday of our dog! I will definetly use Pete in the future and highly recommend him.
Peter was great with my 5 month old Siberian Husky Gretzky. He responded quickly to my texts. Gretzky seemed to be extremely happy and tired street running wit has Peter. I would definitely recommend Peter to all of my friends.
Peter is a great dog sitter. Axel loves staying with him!
Peter was kind and playful with Quincy Jones. He made my dogs special food and even sent me a photo!! He also sent photos each day and that made me feel really great. When I got Quincy back he was clam and content. I will definitely work with Peter again!



Ultimately Quincy Jones was very happy and I will use Peter as often as I travel- Thank you Peter!!!

Peter responded quickly to my requests and he just has this je ne sais quoi that fit my dog's personality.

He sent photos and updates and while she was happy to see me when I picked her up she wasn't overly excited to leave him which was sure indicator that they got along great. Peter will be seeing Peppa again soon!

Thanks again Peter :)
