300 pounds worth of dog in my Volvo.  I drive these two out to the street to avoid them walking across the invisible electric fence line...then it's walk time!

--Pet Sitting in Your Home:

Limited availability.  This service's availability is subject to my current workload at any given time.  Please check with me far ahead the time you'll be away, and also please research other options along with Burke's.  More information to come, but for now...

We visit your house while you are away for multiple days to visit your dogs, cats, snakes, birds, etc  (more on cats below).  You determine the number of visits per day.   Typically, it is 3 or 4 visits.  The service averages about $75 per day.   It differs from our "walking" service in that you are away for multiple days instead of just at work or out for the day.

  • Maybe your dogs don't do well at boarding places and feel more comfortable at home.  


  • Maybe you like the fact that someone is continually showing up at your home when you're away, for security and peace of mind.......such as when I showed up for a last call visit at night, and the cats had bumped into the kitchen sink water faucet and the spot was pointing at the counter---not into the sink.  So the water was running...EVERYWHERE.  I mopped it all up and restored order.  Imagine if I no one showed up that evening to catch that!!!

This differs from dog walking in that you would be away for multiple days instead of just at work for the day, for example.  Such as when you travel.

--House Sitting:   

More info coming soon,  But for now...We can provide as much care and attention to your house while you are away, as we do with the pets we care for.  Don't have pets but still want Mail and trash barrels brought in?  Plants watered.  Activity in your yard while you're away so it doesn't invite thieves.  And so much more.  

--Cat Sitting:

The most common amount of times cat sitting clients have us visit is once or twice per day.  

We clean out litter boxes.  Give insulin and other medication.  Feed and change water.  Play.  

We've been cat sitting for years and have crawled under beds to greet our clients' cats more than a few times!

Visits start at $15.

--Framed Photography of Local Interest...Coming Soon:

Framed photography of local nature and landscapes taken while on our dog walks like this one will be available soon.  I was walking a dog near the Assabet River in Stow in the winter time, and came across this Swan:


We offer two sizes of frames with mats, or printed photo only.  These will be available soon.  Thanks for your patience.

--Online Education:

Start a Dog Walking Business.  COMING SOON.  The first release of many self-study courses to come.  Benefit from super-specific advice on how to get started, how to market yourself and how to grow...weather it's just to earn some part time income, or to start your new full time.  "Dip your toes" in the waters of running your own business without getting into anything too intensive...but you can also still grow and develop this new business as much as you want if you decide to!  Coming Fall of 2019.  

--Dog Care Consulting / Advice...COMING SOON:  

More info coming soon.  But for now, we can spend a dedicated and intensive hour or so with you and go over many of the very important issues regarding dog care---you don't have to be a current dog care client for this service.  

Did you just get an adorable puppy or a lovable rescue?  Are you watching a friend's dog for an extended period of time?  Then you may want to know:

Types of harnesses and leashes that best suit your particular dog.  Fencing and other containment issues.  Where to get great deals.  How to handle off leash dogs charging at you and your dog when you walk her...and so much more.  COMING SOON

Not to worry, if you're a current dog care client, and we do a "meet and greet" or you just want some advice, yes, we still provide a lot of the same information at no charge.  But...this particular service is much more intensive and not watered down with issues such as where you keep the leash for a walk, where the treats are kept, etc...which is often discussed in a "regular" meet and greet to prep for dog walking visits to your house.  The focus of the Dog Care Consultation is on your concerns about caring for your dog versus details about how a dog walk will be conducted.
