About Ben

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Ben and first and foremost I am a dog lover. I grew up with dogs and cared for the dogs of neighbors since I was 8 years old (I'm 30 now). For three years in college and three years in law school, I also volunteered my time at local humane societies. I have a 7-year old Yorkie named Enzo.

I treat your pet like a member of my family. Dogs sleep in the bed with me, they get walks (sometimes two!), they get snuggled, they get food and medication on time every day, I keep you updated with daily pictures, etc. Your pet is in safe hands and most pets greatly enjoy their vacay spent with me.

My daily weekday routine consists of working during the day and then coming home. When I am watching a dog, this means taking it for a walk in or around Cherokee Park. I have a very comfortable and spacious apartment, a backyard and a safe surrounding neighborhood where your dog and I can take walks.

Enzo, my Yorkie, grew up in a household with two other dogs and he is very comfortable and friendly with both humans and dogs alike. When he isn't sleeping (usually on my lap) he enjoys playing fetch and taking walks.

Ben was great. Very flexible and accommodating.
Great communication and very professional. Scout came home happy.
Ben was great! He sent me pictures of Ellie while I was gone and took her on a nice walk. I completely trusted him and will definitely book him again!
Ben is a great dog sitter. Super reliable and easy to work with. My travels are very unpredictable and changes to my itinerary happen often. All I had to do was inform Ben and he would adjust his schedule to meet my travel needs. Great guy. Oh - and my dogs love him!
Ben was great. He picked my dog on time and brought him back w/o me being home. The next time I go out of town, I'm definitely calling him.
This was the first time we used a sitter and it was a great experience for us. It started with a meet and greet to check compatibility with Enzo, the dog of the house, and Moose, a 70 pound dobermix. We determined it was a match, set a date, met timely, left instructions, food, bed and bones, and took off. Moose came home happy, and in fact, a little too inclined to stay at Ben's house, which only told us how comfortable and cared for he had been. This was further evidenced by Caroline's observations about Moose's behavior. Ben stayed in contact and assuaged our worries with pictures that were posted while we were away.
Ben was great! We requested his help the night before he watched our puppy and he was quick to respond, took great care of our French Bulldog (3month old puppy), and also texted us with pictures throughout the day! I would definitely recommend him to other pet owners!!
Ben did a great job with the dogs. He put me at ease immediately and was clearly a dog lover. Our puppy can be difficult to manage and he seemed to have no problems. He sent multiple pictures to update us on the dogs and accommodated my extremely delayed flight without complaint. I would highly recommend Ben and will definitely hire him again.
