About James

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a family of ANIMAL LOVERS who will care for your loved one as if they were a member of our own family. Both adults in the house are active members of a state-wide dog rescue, and will truly go above and beyond to make sure that your furry companion is safe, comfortable, and well-loved while in our care. My wife and I both work from home, so with the exception of running small errands, someone will always be home, so you would never have to worry about your pet being left alone for hours, longing for companionship.
We are comfortable and experienced taking care of all breed/sizes/ages. We are also able to accommodate any and all medical issues that a guest may have, and we do have vast experience in administering a multitude of medications when needed.
We also offer free pick-up and drop-off service to all of our clients!

Super convenient, helpful, and worry free. Every time we needed to get in touch, James responded quickly. We especially appreciated the pick up and drop off service. Great experience, will definitely use James again.
We were so grateful that James and his family accepted our last minute request for boarding over the holidays when another sitter cancelled. James responded right away, and came to our place to meet our dog. Really nice guy, insisted on pick up and drop off at our house. This family has great reviews on Rover.com so we were reassured. Great communication during booking, harder to get in touch during the stay. Our dog seemed fine when returned to us (he can't talk, after all), but then we noticed he was covered in urine smell, with a few new scrapes and inflamed eyes and snout. This could be normal wear-and-tear but I'm concerned that James didn't mention any of it. In general I thought James was vague about a few aspects of the stay (I'm not so clear where exactly my dog slept at night or where he spent the day, or how they avoided interaction with the other dog they were boarding). That's not such a big deal but overall, these small things add up, and don't make us feel great about leaving our dog with them again. I know they have nothing but amazing reviews on Rover. Three stars to give them benefit of the doubt.
