I’ve known Mark for over 35 years, I highly recommend him as an excellent candidate for dog/house sitting. He had a wonderful dog he had loved and trained

Why we want to house sit

I have worked and travelled the world before, during, & after my Army career. I have lived in private homes wherever possible because they are usually more comfortable & relaxing. I preferred 'guest houses' long before AirB&B was invented

Our experience

I have taken care of over 50 different homes. And, taken care of cats, birds, and reptiles. The older I get, the more I like dogs.
