Hi my name is Matt and I'm college student who still can’t afford a dog of his own, so I love to help take care of other peoples! I have loved dogs ever since I was a little kid and have helped take care of multiple dogs for friends and family since I was in middle school. I'm a very active person and sports enthusiast so I'll be able to take them on longs walks, runs, and anything else you would like me to do so your pet can have a very enjoyable time.

I have had dogs my entire life; I currently have 2 chocolate labs. I have been dog sitting for about 15 years around my neighborhood. My experience includes being a member of Kids for Paws, an organization that raised money to donate to animal shelters, military dogs, and guide dogs. I was also a volunteer at the SPCA while I was in college. I am great with everyone from high-energy puppies that love to play to older dogs who just love to snuggle. I can’t wait to meet your furry friends!

“I will treat your dog as one of my family!”

I grew up with dogs on our horse farm & pet sat through college. I was a vet tech, dog groomer & kennel manager for 8 years at a vet before starting my own business so I can do various medical treatments, meds, etc. I have 2 large dogs- Griffey a humane society pup and Monty a golden retriever. If you are going away for a weekend or vacation, my daughter, son and I all do house/pet sitting in your home. Keep your dog in the comfort of it's own home/schedule & not the stresses of a kennel.
