About Kevin

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
ABOUT US:

Hi there and thank you for checking out our profile. We are two responsible, young professionals who are happy to help care for your dog while you are away on vacation or business and will treat your dog like a part of our family. We have a 6-year old Beagle-Italian Greyhound mix named Charlotte who loves other dogs. She weighs 17 pounds and spends most of her time eating or sleeping.

We started officially watching pups in the Summer of 2015 and have been having a blast doing it. It's been a great experience seeing our dog interact with other dogs and learning the funny quirks of each dog we watch.

When we aren't at home, we're usually out exploring the neighborhood and going on long walks with our pup. Van Cleve Park is just a block away, and other walking friendly areas such as Dinkytown, the University of Minnesota campus, and the Stone Arch bridge are a short walk away.

We do work regular 9-5 day jobs during the week, so we can only watch your dog if they are comfortable being home alone (with our dog) during a regular work day. By day I'm an attorney and Caitlin is a dentist currently completing a residency at the U of M,

We limit ourselves to watching only one dog at a time so you can be comfortable knowing that your dog is getting 100% of our attention.

Please feel free to get in touch with us. We are happy to watch your dog and will ensure that your dog is treated with the best of care. And our dog Charlotte loves having a friend to play with. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!

*A note on drop off and pick up times. Because we work during the day, if you are dropping your pup off on a weekday, you will need to drop off your pup the night before. We are typically flexible on pick-up times however.*


OTHER NOTES:

-Dogs are allowed on our bed.
-Dogs are allowed on furniture.
-We can only watch 1 dog at a time.


WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR DOG:

We do require a meet and greet in advance to make sure we are a good fit for you and that our pups get along.

We had a great experience with Kevin!! He was easy to communicate with, sent tons of pictures and updates, and you could really tell he loves dogs. We will definitely use him again!!
Kevin was great ! Sent pictures and updates daily :) highly recommend!
Kevin and Caitlin were great with my dog Benson while I was on vacation. Benson and their dog Charlotte got along well, and Kevin provided regular updates and pictures. I would be comfortable leaving Benson with them again.
