Hello, my name is Jackson. I love dogs and they have been some of my best friends throughout my life. I helped my parents with our dogs growing up and now I watch my friends' dogs quite often. I'm also an occasional dog walker for the local Humane Society. I enjoy walking, playing and going hiking with dogs. I don't have a private yard, but I live near a park and some hiking trails. I am also able to bring a dog to work with me. My work location has a large, fenced yard. There is one dog (a medium yellow lab) at work that is very friendly and loves to play. Occasionally, the neighbor's dog comes over to play, but he is very friendly as well.
I would like to get to know both the dog and it's owner(s) before I agree to watch a dog. I don't believe in physical abuse as a training method or as a punitive measure. I have a very clean driving record and I always drive safely, especially with dogs in the car!
I will only watch well behaved, house trained dogs. I'm not interested in dogs that jump on furniture, chew up household items, or are not leash trained. I will not watch dogs that are aggressive or threatening to other dogs or people. I also do not text so if you're the type of owner who needs constant text updates on your dog then I am probably not the sitter for you. I will happily return calls though within a few hours. I appreciate honest dog owners who divulge any and all of their dog's possible problematic behaviors ahead of time.
