Hello, my name is Jackson and I love dogs! I don't currently have one but I've cared for dogs my whole life. 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.
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 do believe that dogs need walking everyday as well as lots of love and care. I have a very clean driving record, and I always drive safely, especially with dogs in the car! I also follow all the city of Durango's ordinances regarding leashes and pet waste removal.
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.
