About James

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had the pleasure of caring for animals most of my life. They have always been a big part of my life. They are family...not just pets. I live in a house with my wife and two children...ummmm I mean cats :) I work from home and can accommodate any dog, size and breed. We have a large house and yard with plenty of room to prance and run. We live up the road from a local we are just a minute away from a stroll in the park and a nice breath of fresh air. My goal is to provide the most amazing experience for your dog...keeping them active, healthy and happy. I treat them as my own. Before putting your dog up in a kennel, please consider our home.

James did wonderful job watching our dogs on two occasions. We appreciated the pictures and updates that he sent to us. Our English Mastiff got sick to his stomach the first time James was watching him. He notified us immediately. He was kind enough to take it upon himself to cook rice for him. The second time we brought our dogs to James, the dogs jumped out of our car and eagerly ran to his door. He treats our dogs as if they were his own. We wouldn't hesitate to bring them again next time we travel.
James is absolutely the best with our very exuberant Golden Retriever. Beau looks forward to their visits!
James is amazing. Knows dogs very well and goes out of his way to make it a great experience for the dog (and his humans :) )
James and his wife Brandy were great hosts for our dogs. He kept us updated with pictures and texts the whole time! It looked like they had a great time! They were all very excited when we picked them up.
My exuberant Golden Retriever enjoys his time with James and especially his other 'guests.'
James and his fur friends were more than amazing with Panda! It was so nice to get all the photos, and videos, I really felt good bout panda being with James.
Very good stay.
James and his wife provided outstanding care and love for our dog. James sent pictures of her while we were away which provided comfort in knowing she was being taken care. I also appreciated the flexibility he provided in drop off and pick up given our more erratic schedule fleeing the storm. I highly recommend this couple for care of your loved canine.
I had a last minute request due to me leaving the state for a funeral unfortunately. I had messaged James to see if he was available to watch my dog for 5 nights and he fit us in his schedule. My dog has EPI and IBD and he took great care of her with ease. He sent videos and photos which helped me to know she was having fun and she was safe, which allowed me to feel at ease while being so far away from her. Nelly and I will definitely be using James in the future and we're so glad we found him! You won't be disappointed :).
I have never left my dog with someone he didn't know before so I was very nervous about it, especially about how he'd get along with other dogs. I wanted him to feel like he was in an environment as close to home as possible, and not in a kennel. After leaving him with James for a day I feel so much more comfortable with leaving him there again. Seamus was well taken care of and came home happy. I even got a picture of him napping peacefully next to another dog after a walk. James is also very easy to talk to and responds quickly, and asked all the questions he might need to know about my dog. I will be leaving him with James again next week and feel very confident that he'll be comfortable and happy while I'm gone.
I felt so comfortable leaving our dogs with James. He is friendly and trustworthy. He sent tons of pictures and videos, and it was clear that our dogs were well cared for!
This was the first time we have ever left our dog and I was very nervous to do so. James was absolutely wonderful!!!! He kept us updated throughout our 7 day vacation and sent us pictures throughout the week. I could not have asked for a better experience. We will definitely be using James again.
This is our second time we have had the privilege of letting James take care of Boss. We left Boss with him for 11 days and are extremely pleased with how he kept us updated with photos and cared for Boss. Would definitely recommend him to anyone with a dog.
Clearly James and his family loves dogs. Dodger walked in and was at home right away. James sent us pictures everyday and well Dodger's face said it all. He was having a blast!
We appreciated James accommodating our very large dog and he was very flexible with our drop-off/pick-up needs! He sent plenty of photos, which was wonderful, and we loved that our dog was a part of his family while staying there.
James was great. I was nervous about leaving my puppy for the first time and he took away my worries. James regularly sent updates and photos. My Gia had a great time.
James took great care of our dog. He sent pictures and kept us updated. We will definitely be using his services in the future.
