About John

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi - I've been a dog lover all my life although I had a 15 year span when I was dogless. That dry spell ended 15 years ago - and I'm so happy with the dogs that have joined my family!

I work out of my home and can provide near constant supervision for visiting pets. My boxer (Slava) absolutely loves ALL animals and is a great influence on guest dogs.

Dogs will get a nice long walk (3-4 miles) in the morning and another long walk (3-4 miles) in the evening. We walk at a pretty brisk pace to and from parks, then slow down so dogs can explore a bit in the parks. At home, dogs can hang out in the house, or on the patio in the backyard with plenty of sun and shade.

John, was ready as always to take our dog. As typical he was attentive to our dog as well. With the exercise John provides and the stimulation of other dogs, our dog has exactly what we needed.
John was a life saver! We had a last minute change in dog sitters and needed someone for a full week. John ended up being the best thing that happened to our 5 month old pup. He was able to socialize with other dogs and go on plenty of walks. He even came back more calm and obedient on his walks! Plus, we know our dog got lots of love and attention in the process! We highly recommend John for all your dog sitting and caring needs!

Milo, our beagle, loves staying with John and Slava. We love that he gets a long walk every day. Milo is excited to spend the day at John's and comes home happy, contended and tired. John has quickly become a part of our pack.
It is abundantly clear that John loves animals and he took great care of my dog while I was out of town for a conference. I didn't worry for one minute about whether or not he was being taken care of properly. I will definitely be scheduling with John again. Thanks so much, John, for being such a great caretaker to my buddy!

John was super welcoming for Billy's first visit and gave him lots of exercise. Billy came home completely worn out. He seemed to have a great day!
John took care of our dog like she was his own. He was available on short notice and very flexible to the drop off and pick up times. He sent us updates and our dog loved her time there. Ill definitely use John in the future and would recommend him to anyone !

We were in a bit of an emergency situation two days before our vacation and John was so accommodating and flexible with us. I think Cash had a great time with him and apparently, the feeling was mutual. Slava was a total sweetheart and very well-behaved. During our meet and greet, I was very impressed with John's dog behavior knowledge, confidence and enthusiasm and it put me at ease. I just knew Cash was in good hands and would be well exercised and cared for. We had such a good experience, that we'll be using him for occasional daycare in the future.

This is the first time we have left Tia and went away in the 6 months since we adopted her. John was friendly and knows dog behavior well. Tia took to him right away. It was very helpful to us to have photos and updates before we had to ask. It took the worry away. After getting Tia back home, she settled back into her routine. There was no sign of mental trauma or anxiety that we sometimes saw when we would board our previous dog. I think Tia really enjoyed her vacation as much as we enjoyed ours. John is our new dog sitter!

I have a 16 week old pup who is a handful and is not an easy breed to train. I would only leave him in the hands of an experienced, patient professional. My confidence in John is very high after our first daycare experience.
John was so wonderful. I was a bit nervous leaving my baby with a total stranger on short notice but as soon as I met him I felt completely comfortable and was actually excited to leave her. John showed me around the house where the dogs would be staying, the outdoor space and he let me meet the other dogs before Nori met them. He sent me a video while I was gone and took the dogs on 2 long walks everyday. I highly recommend John and will DEFINITELY be using him again!

Our dog loved her time with John and his family. She was well cared for and that gave us peace of mind.
