    Jason took real good care of our cats as well as our home for the week while we were gone. He also sent daily texts and pics of our cats. He is a very nice person to deal with and completely trustworthy!

    Jason has been letting my dogs out for about 2 - 3 months. He sends pictures everyday to let me know how my dogs are doing. He also stays a bit to keep them company. I have been very pleased with Jason Loves Dogs. And my dogs are very comfortable with him too!

    Jason has been taking care of my two dogs for a few months now and he's amazing. He texts me pictures of how happy they are to see him. Jason is reliable, punctual, and so friendly. We're so lucky to have him and we trust him completely with our dogs.

    Jason is wonderful and keeps you informed everyday. He sent us texts with pictures of the cats and also took care of the mail, opening and closing the drapes and bringing in the paper. I would not hesitate to use him for future pet sitting needs! He is funny, too.

    Jason always does a great job caring for our cat when we are away. He is very dependable and it is such a relief to know that our elderly cat is well cared for when we are out of town. I really appreciate the texts and pictures of my cat that he sends to let me know that she is ok.

    My wife and I are quite picky when it comes to finding care for our dogs. For four months, he has been coming into our house to provide mid-day play time for our dogs. His attention to detail and his dedication and love of his job is quite evident. Our dogs love him (which is quite rare), and they are quite exhausted from play with Jason when we get home in the evening hours. We highly recommend Jason as a trustworthy and dependable caretaker of dogs. We are extremely satisfied customers of his services.

    We hired Jason for the week to stop by and let out dog out during the day. We found him to be trustworthy , dependable , and prompt. He was also willing to accomodate coming a bit earlier than initially planned. Our dog is not really good with strangers taking care of him but he took to Jason right away. They can sense when someone is really an animal lover like Jason. We would enthusiastically recommend him for all your pet sitting needs.

    Jason, took care of my lab Toby. I work a very hectic schedule ; that can change on a moments notice. Jason was very accommodating with my schedule. Toby was always happy with Jason. I really like the fact that Jason would leave a report card of his visit. I would highly reccomend using Jason for all your pet sitting needs.

    Jason has exceeded our expectations as a pet sitter. He not only does the basics well, like walking, feeding, etc., but he also keeps things clean and neat after each visit. And not only is it true that "Jason loves dogs", but also the dogs seem to love Jason which makes for a good working relationship. Jason is an A1 pet sitter. He is the best!

    We love Jason's pet sitting services! By the way, he also loves cats! We have three cats that we used to bring to a very reputable kennel, but we always felt guilty bringing them to an enclosed area where they could not roam familiar areas. We've used Jason multiple times over the last three years and we can always rely on him to care for our pets per our instructions and schedule. Jason's fees are reasonable, less than the kennel we used in the past. He covers all the details and is very customer-oriented. We recommend him highly - his work is excellent!

    When my husband became ill, he was no longer able to walk our 110-pound Black Labrador. Our lab needs a firm hand and someone with the ability to handle a dog who wants to get away with everything she can and she desperately needed daily exercise. We found Jason and could not possibly be more pleased. From the very first meeting we knew we had found someone that was perfect. Our lab isn't fond of everyone, but she instantly bonded with Jason. He has worked with our lab for over a year now and I can truly say we have never seen her so well-behaved. She gets a wonderful daily workout that releases her pent up energy and keeps her calm (she is always ready to take a nap after her walk with Jason) and also keeps her weight down. She absolutely loves Jason and is always extremely eager to go for her walk. If you are looking for someone that is dependable, trustworthly and has the expertise to handle all types of dogs with different personalities then Jason should be your dog walker.

    Where to start? Jason is not only my dog walker but has become my friend. Jason has been walking my dogs for over 2 years. I have two dogs Bowser is ten and Boomer is four. When Jason comes around my dogs act like I am not even there. Boomer is so attached to Jason that god forbid if anything was ever to happen to me Jason's home would become Boomer's home. Jason is ALWAYS willing to help me out when I get stuck at work and need an extra visit. A quick text or phone call is all it takes and he is there within 15 min. I can not tell you how nice it is to have Jason watch my dogs while I am on vacation. He takes them into his home for a great price. I do not have to worry while on vacation that my dog is in a crate and scared. At hotel Jason they get the 5 paw treatment. So to sum this up if you looking for a great dog, cat, lizard, bird, fish, sitter Jason is your man. :)

    We moved to the area a little over a year ago from Minnesota. I was so fortunate to find Jason for our Miss Minniesota! We travel a lot and he was always available to keep Sota as well as give us updates and pictures while we were away! It is so convenient to have Jason be willing to pick up and deliver our pet to help accommodate our busy schedules. Jason truly is passionate and very knowledgeable and I would recommend him to anyone looking for someone to "love" on their pet while they are away!

    Jason is the best, and has been my dogwalker for over a year. I'm an attorney with a completely unpredictable schedule and I frequently work late nights and long hours. There is no way I could do my job without having a reliable dogwalker, and Jason is ALWAYS there when I need him (with hardly any notice, sorry Jason!). He has to handle my dominant, food-aggressive Rottweiler, who is on four different heart medications, and my formerly-abused and "evil" small dog, who even my family refuses to handle, and all with a smile on his face.

    I'm not the easiest customer to please, but after emergency vet visits, feedings, medications, late night visits, weekend visits, several visits a day, etc... I cannot recommend Jason enough!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Dog Walking, Pet Sitting, Cat Sitting, poop pick up, litter box cleaning, mail pick up, alter lights, medications, backyard play with dogs, small animal work, water fill and replace, Daily walks, vacation visits, occasional visits, pictures of animals sent to clients, facebook integration with clients, facebook updates, phone, text, email communication with clients, late night service available, on call available when possible. Vet recommended! Neat and Tidy, check house for safety.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Make sure to always hire someone like me who is insured, bonded, and has references. Make sure they are honest and open. I am on facebook and well known. A good Pet caretaker is known by lots of great people in their area. Anyone who does their job well should have at least 3 references after 6months and at least 5 after one year. A great pet sitter should be able to do this for a living after 2 years. People who are professional pet sitters like me do this and only this. We love it so much we work 24-7 to achieve our goals. We do everything we can to serve the needs of the client. Both. Human and Pet clients! Every call should be returned within 3 hours or less when calling a pet sitter. Also calls or text should be returned within 15minutes if the pet sitter is not busy. If you can't get a hold on the phone or text with your pet sitter consider getting a new one because they "don't mean business"

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. Talk to someone who is sucessful in the business. Make sure you are comfortable with ALL dogs and cats! Make sure you are willing to pay for insurance and bonding. Join an organization like NAPPS. Make sure you don't mind walking and working outside in hot weather and freezing weather. Be self motivated. Be a great communicator. Be service orientated. Know how to market your service. Don't fear any animal. You must love all animals especially dogs and cats! Take a dog for a 3 mile walk and see how you feel. Clean some litter boxes. Make sure the "duties" of the job don't bother you. Make sure "poop smells, dog gas, ect...." Don't bother you. Many people think this profession is just a "walk in the park" sometimes it is but that is only a small portion of what we do.

Q. What is your greatest strength?

A. My love for animals has no limits! I love spending time with all the dogs, cats, and small animals every day, 24-7. When not taking care of my clients, I along with my wife take care of our animals and do rescue and rehab for cats.I am an excellent communicator and do everything I can to make my animal clients as well as their human owners happy!
