About Steve

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a work from home professional with kids and a wonderful dog of my own. I have a large house with a fenced back yard in a quiet neighborhood, with lots of sidewalks and nearby parks. My own dog gets along very well with all dogs, and loves to play!
On a typical day I will walk your dog with mine in the morning and in the evening, though if I have time and the weather is good I do get out at lunch as well. I will feed them morning and evening, if a dog has special dietary needs please discuss them with me. I will accommodate any reasonable schedule. I will provide leash training while the dog is with me. Additionally I will work on the sit and stay commands on each walk as this makes for a more enjoyable owner experience, and honestly dogs love to please so practicing simple commands followed by positive reinforcement makes them so happy!

My own dog is crate trained and I am a believer in crate training for dogs, it gives them their own space inside our homes to call their own and eliminates territorial aggressiveness that is often the root of aggressiveness towards humans.
I insist on meeting your dog prior to scheduling a first time stay, so I can see how well your dog gets along with mine - I have never rejected a dog for this reason, though I feel it's important to verify that before hand. I will also look for aggressiveness towards myself and extreme shyness. I have a lot experience with dogs and can deal with shy dogs, aggressive dogs on the other hand I would refuse to care for though I have never had to reject a dog due to aggression.
I do have children in my house - they are school-age and are familiar with dogs, like most children they have a lot of energy and will help entertain your dog when they are here.

Excellent and trustworthy. He is very professional, easygoing, responsible and gentle with the dog. He made us feel very comfortable and secure during the 12 days stay and our dog was very happy. Highly recommend him.
Steve is great. We wish he had paid a little more attention to feeding walking instuctions so all would have had an excellent experience.
Steve is a caring host. Lucy was well taken care of during her stay with Steve. Thank you!
