About Reed

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Reed is an experienced dog and home sitter. He (and his dog Nuggett) will be happy to care for and train dogs as well as their owners. Reed is comfortable with all breeds, genders, and backgrounds. He has worked at dog daycares and boarding facilities.

Nuggett is a 35 lb. Boxer mix. He is extremely well trained and is command oriented. Nuggett often serves to socialize other dogs and test their temperament. He is friendly with people, dogs, and cats.

Reed (and Nuggett if you'd like) can visit your home or open their home to you. They share their home with wife/mom (Alice) and daughter/sister (Elise). The entire family can be seen in the Photos section.

The home has two dog-doors that lead to a spacious wooded back yard enclosed with a tall wood privacy fence. The indoor and outdoor living areas are comfortably equipped with water/food bowls, dog toys, and beds. However, they prefer to spend their time out enjoying the Parkway and National Forests.

Reed and Nuggett are happy to help train and rehabilitate aggressive dogs on a case by case basis. First meet/greet for such cases are conducted on neutral ground (away from our home and yours).

Reed is an amazing animal caregiver! He loves to help train dogs and is very active in making sure dogs are healthy, happy, and exercised regularly! He helped me train my very hyper active dog on a daily basis. Reed's dog is extremely obedient and well behaved! He has dog sat for my babies many times and I would use his services time and time again! I would recommend him to all my friends and family! Thanks so much for your loving care of my babies as well as helping me train my dogs!

My dog Tsali has stayed with Reed and Nuggett many times and always has a blast! Reed has a way with dogs like I've never seen. You can tell he genuinely loves interacting with them. I'm always blown away by the way he can get them to focus. He has always given me great advice for training and caring for Tsali.
Nuggett is such a great dog. He loves to play with animals and humans alike and has become one of Tsali's best friends. He is always a ready to play but is completely obedient, patient, and well mannered.
I would 100% recommend Reed and Nuggett. They have a great house and back yard for playing. Elise, their daughter/sister is really cute and great with dogs!

We trust Reed explicitly with our two large mutts. He connects with dogs instantly and pays particular attention to their exercise and affection needs.

This was Anne's second visit with Reed and family. LOVE them! She has the best time and the whole family was genuinely excited to watch Anne again! Seriously, they should have their own reality show, "The Dog Whisperers."
Reed was wonderful with our dog, Kenya. She loved playing with his dog, Nugget. The fenced in yard made it a great experience for her. He sent updates and videos while we were away. Would definitely bring our dog there again. We loved the location and convenience near the AVL airport..
We couldn't have been more pleased with the care and attention Wilson got with Reed and his family. Every day they took hikes, went to the dog park and/or played in his big, enclosed back yard. Wilson got along great with Nuggett, too. I am really impressed with Reed's interest and experience with caring for and training dogs. I knew after our first Meet and Greet that Wilson would be in super-capable hands. Reed will absolutely be our first choice the next time we need Wilson to go on his own Vacay!
Great experience, our dog seemed to have a great time. We knew she was in good hands and not in a kennel. Would definitely recommend Reed to future Dog Vacayers!
Reed was a great host for my dog Shirley.
I was impressed with his professionalism with taking Shirley into his care. He also made sure she was a good fit for his home with his dog Nugget. Daily updates of how Shirley was doing was great while I was away traveling for the holidays. I definitely recommend Reed and will use him in the future!
From the initial meet-up with Nugget, to the drop-off, to the funny videos and photos Reed sent us throughout our vacation, we felt so grateful and secure having Ann stay with Reed and family! There's a huge back yard and doggy door. The pups get to roam as they please and they get plenty of attention, love, and training! Seriously. We'll never leave Ann anywhere else.
