About Seth

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi Everyone,
The following is a little bit about me. I am currently employed as a veterinary technician and have been for seven years (with the same hospital for six). I have connections to 3 different veterinary clinics (1 being 24/7) which enables me to have your pet seen immediately if something were to go wrong, so you know that your pet will always be taken care of.

I graduated from Occidental College with a B.A. in Biology and hope to go to veterinary school after a gap year.

I have volunteered graveyard shifts at an Emergency Animal Clinic as well as volunteered with the Humane Society for Spay Day.

In addition to working as a veterinary technician, I have petsat for 10+ years, always providing the best experience for my clients and their pets. Being a vet tech, I know when emergent symptoms arise that indicate your pet needs help, and will not hesitate to call in you an emergency and help you make the best choice for your pet.

My job has me constantly giving medication, fluids, insulin, etc, which I am also able to provide for my clients at no additional charge.
*While I am not CPR certified, I do know how to give CPR and resuscitation techniques due to my involvement with veterinary medicine.

Feel free to contact me with ANY questions you may have or if you would like to be provided references. I look forward to meeting up with you and your pet soon!

After reading Seth's reviews I knew I found the right pet sitter. I booked last minute and he was very flexible with his schedule. I really prefer to have someone stay in my home so my dogs are in their own environment and less stressed due to new surroundings and the anxiety of missing their daddy. Seth keep me updated daily with pictures and texts and when I returned home all 3 dogs were happy and healthy. I will book with Seth again when I have to be out of town and need my dogs taken care of by a very responsible person.
Thank you Seth!

Once again, Seth was a lifesaver! He is outstanding with our pets and keeping us informed and relaxed so we can enjoy our time away. I can't rave enough about Seth!
We loved Seth so much and would certainly use him again.
We have quite a little pack at home with two cats and two big dogs. We were nervous to leave them with someone as our last pet sitter lost our cat (don't trust your friends to do the job, get a professional). Seth responded to all my messages very quickly and was very thorough at the meet and greet. He sent pictures and texts letting us know all was okay back at home so we could relax and enjoy our time away. We will absolutely reach out to Seth anytime we need someone to watch our babies. He was so professional and the animals loved him...we can't rave enough about Seth!

Everything went smoothly w/ the reservation, Thanks Seth!!
Seth was amazing! I found out I had to
travel abroad at the last minute for work. I was worried about finding a good sitter on such short notice. I have 2 bulldogs that need extra care and 2 cats. Seth came to the rescue, and I boarded my plane knowing my loves were in good hands.

He was meticulous in getting all of the information when we first met. Seth took great care of them giving me frequent updates and pictures. He kept
a close watch on my bullies eyes, ears and skin issues. Best of all he gave them playtime and the attention they needed.

I don't give 5 stars easily, but Seth was exactly as advertised. I needed someone to come stay in my house with my dog, as he doesn't like to be boarded. Seth was quickly responsive to every email, and came to meet me and my dog and see the house before we agreed to contract. He was punctual, knowledgeable, a great communicator, asked all the right questions, and has his own notebook to keep track of what my dog needed. He provided references, sent me update texts, left a note summarizing everything that was done, and even texted me the night I got back to make sure I had made it home and my dog was OK. Could not have been better!

Seth was exactly what we needed to find in a dogvacay host. We had him administer IV fluids to our pet (at our house) while we were out of town. His experience as a veterinary assistant and his attention to detail allow me to give him the highest level of recommendation.

Great communication, and while we didn't leave our dog with him for a dogvacay, we would certainly use his services again.

Don't even know where to start with Seth. simply put, HE WAS AMAZING. We had never used a dog sitter so we had our concerns, but from our first conversation Seth put us at ease, went out of his way to accommodate us and he did a wonderful job while we were gone. We couldn't ask for more. As a matter of fact, i joked with my girlfriend on our way back home, i said to her Seth was doing such a great job i wouldn't mind hiring him full time everyday. But all jokes aside, Seth was truly awesome, easy to talk to, understanding, caring, and i would recommend him to everyone and will definitely use him any time i need someone to watch our dogs. He was simply amazing and did a great job. We could not have been happier with Seth. A+++++++++++++++++++++++++ ALL THE WAY. Seth has my contact info, if anyone wants to contact me directly to ask about our experience, ask Seth for my contact info.

Seth, thank you for going out of your way to watch over my four legged babies with my crazy work schedule! I am grateful! You are AWESOME!!!
My husband and I are dual military, and its been pretty stressful finding someone we can trust to watch and care for our pets, especially since we have one of our pets that needs to take meds every so many hours. We are grateful to have Seth care and watch over our babies! Seth responded right away to my request. When he came over to meet my pets, he came prepared, took notes and was very professional! I was surprised how well he handled my pets when he came to meet them! He took to them very well! He asked questions and voiced his concerns. Seth also sent me a text when he arrived at my house and a picture! Really put my mind at ease! I strongly recommend Seth to anyone who has doubts or worries about letting someone watch over their pet. My worries are gone. Thank you Seth!!!

My wife and I were very nervous about hiring a dogwalker because we are a little overprotective of our pit and are wary of strangers making unfair assumptions about her because of her breed, but because of work obligations, we were forced to seek the help of someone else in taking care of Rosie. Fortunately for us, Seth has been an absolute dream, and I don't know what we would have done without his services, patience, and care. Seth was able to come to our home and meet Rosie weeks before we actually hired him, just so we could all get a feel for each other. We could tell immediately that he genuinely loves dogs and is very comfortable around them, no matter the breed. Rosie took to him quickly and was very comfortable around her. He asked us lots of questions about our dogs temperament and habits and spent some time feeding her treats and playing with her. Then Seth gave us his schedule (he is a student and walks dogs around his class times) and assured us that he could try and be flexible based on our needs. Sure enough, last week we ended up needing Seth almost every single day. I felt bad because we didn't know until the last minute if we would need his help to walk Rosie, but he didn't complain at our spur of the moment requests at all and he was actually able to accommodate every walk we needed! He made a stressful week run a lot more smoothly than I ever imagined it would. He texts us to let us know that the walk went well and sometimes he will even send us a photo of Rosie on their walk with her tail wagging madly just to let us know she is in good spirits and good hands. Seth gave us a little bit of his background when we first met him; knowing that he has spent so many of his summers working at vet hospitals and is in school to start a career working in health care for animals makes us feel like we are in excellent hands. Seth has proven to be trustworthy, thoughtful, and very easy to work with and I can only hope that once he graduates school we can find a walker who is as wonderful as he has proven to be. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the area who is looking for a pet walker/sitter.

Seth was great! Very professional--he took notes during our meet-n-greet (scheduled on the same day) and asked us lots of important questions that we hadn't even considered. His response time was excellent, which was much appreciated since we had waited until the last minute to schedule him.
On top of all of that, our two very energetic dogs loved him (he even sent us pictures to prove it)! Perhaps because he gave them an extra walk when they seemed to need one.
We are so glad to have found a caretaker that our dogs love and that we trust. Hopefully he's free this weekend... :)
