Dog Owner Reviews

I chose Todd to watch my dog Kylie. Kylie is a Chesapeake Bay retriever, a trained gun dog and has numerous gold ribbons, and is also a service dog. She absolutely loves Todd. She’s extremely intelligent and senses who is good to her and shies away from those who are not.

Todd watched her for over a week while I was traveling. She was healthy, happy, and I think she may have even wished they would’ve stayed way longer so she could stay and play with Todd. I would not hesitate to leave Kylie with Todd, at any time, for any length of time.

PS; I think this is the first or 2nd testimonial I have ever given to anyone for anything.

We have known Todd for over 40 years now. I would not trust anyone else in the world with my own dog, than Todd. I would never leave my dog with a total stranger, professional or no. Even my own family, I would not trust. But Todd is the only person I would consider for this very important privilege. He is responsible and caring…and loves animals. He has had birds (and I mean BIG birds, no easy task to care for) and dogs as companions. You could not do better than to hire Todd.

Todd has known and cared for my dog for almost seven years now, since she was 8 weeks old.
He is awesome. Caring, loving, conscious, and speaks great K-9. I have no concerns at all when she is being cared for by Todd.
I whole heartedly recommend him.
