Introduction: I've been dog sitting, cat sitting, and doing all kinds of pet care for over fifteen years. I have a strong bond with animals, and am familiar with most breeds of dogs; I also adore cats and am always willing to pamper kitties, too. I work with a cat rescue, and have saved countless stray cats, kittens, and "feral" felines. I have excellent references and am able to travel outside of San Jose. By hiring me, you only have to deal with one person, and not a 3rd party. As mentioned, I have excellent references and a steady client base. My rates are fair and I charged the current market rate for a dog walker and pet sitter. I'm reliable, trustworthy, punctual, and passionate about helping animals in every way possible. I've been active on Thumbtack for eight years, and have built excellent relationships with both humans and their beloved pets! This is what makes me stand out from my competition.

I was a little nervous about having someone i didn’t know personally come into my house to care for my dogs while i was away, but as soon as i met Jared i was put at ease. He was great with my little elderly dogs. They aren’t good with new people but he was patient and caring. Super responsive and i definitely appreciated his check-ins and updates throughout our trip. He went above and beyond when i got a delivery i wasn’t expecting, and helped unpack and put away the items that needed to be refrigerated. I have no hesitation in highly recommending him for pet sitting and definitely plan to hire him again in the future!

Details: Dog • 2 pets • Giving food and water • Taking pet outside • Short visit (30 minutes) • Two times a day • My home, venue, etc.

Jared, was great! We hired him to doggie sit 2 of my mother-in-laws doggies. His communication/texting/sharing pictures and knowledge of dogs was excellent. I would highly recommend his services. His meet and greet was a good visit to connect and make sure everyone gets along. He even left a thank you card and 3 doggies toys when he completed the job. 5 star man. We will hire him again!! Highly recommended doggie sitter.

We cannot say enough good things about Jared! He helped us out in a pinch and was extremely professional. Jared took great care of our home and our doggos and it was so comforting to know there wasn’t anything to worry about! If you need someone trustworthy to take care of your pets - whether for a day or for an extended stay at your home - Jared is your guy! We can’t wait to work with him again.

Jared watched our 2 very active dogs and cat and he did an excellent job. He was very attentive, checked in with us every day and gave us updates throughout the weekend. We would hire him back again for sure!

    I am fair, honest, and conversational. I want my customers to know my interests, hobbies, and overall experience with animals. Additionally, I want to know as much as I can about them, and their pups.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Various specific animal training; however, I've yet to be certified.
