About Matt

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I have a Standard Poodle and I grew up with Yorkshire Terriers. All dogs are welcome into our home, however, I am more hesitant on larger male dogs due to Kona not being neutered. As long as your male is not dominant and likes to play, Kona should get along great with your pup. I am open to all meet n greets, but please keep that in mind. I can also come to your home for overnight dog sitting, check-in/visits and especially walk your dogs. I love to play fetch with dogs and walk/run with your dogs if you prefer even more exercise for them!

I work as an Athletic Trainer at Saint Johns High School, so I am free during the morning/early afternoon hours (6am-1:00pm) during the week to attend to your dog's needs while you are at work. I am also available on most weekends. Please feel free to contact me as my schedule is pretty flexible.

I currently offer doggy daycare, in addition to overnight boarding. I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

At this time, I only offer sitting for dogs;
I don’t currently accept cats. Thank you!

This was the best experience we have ever had with leaving town without our Lillie. Normally I am a little anxious, worried she is homesick and sad, but Matt sent pictures everyday with notes on what activities they had done, and when I picked her up, she was happy to come home, but didn't seem desperate to get out of there. I am so happy to have found someone I can leave her with in the future. Matt and his wife were just excellent. And their dog, Kona, was also great. I would highly recommend them to friends and family.

Matt had a busy house the day he watched my dogs, but everyone was happy at the end of the day. I had a new rescue who we were still learning her temperament, Matt handled her beautifully. Both dogs came home happy and tired. Matt will continue to be our go-to when we are in the area!
