Hi, I'm Demetrius! What can I say, I LOVE DOGS...I mean I love all animals but dogs are just the top! I've had dogs my entire life, from little fluffy white dogs to muscle bound pit-bulls. My most recent, an English Bulldog named Hollywood, unfortunately passed after 11 amazing years and I'm without a pooch for the moment. I hope you allow me the pleasure of taking care of your important family member while you are at work or away and I will treat him or her as if they were my own!

I grew up with dogs. I currently have two little fur babies of my own whom I love to death. When I was in highschool I took care of the neighborhood pets for income. While in grad school in California I was employed by a petsitting program through our student union. I’ve been around animals all my life and I’m very familiar and confident in handling all sizes, temperaments, and breeds.
