Hello. I am a 60-year-old, non-smoking male who has always been inspired by the unconditional love that comes from our pets. My first pet/home sit experiences began in my late teen years as a way to help fund my college education. I am a college graduate and dedicated over 28-years working as an Account Manager for a manufacturing co. in the Cleveland, Ohio area. I retired in June of 2017 and spent many years "on the road" for my career and am quite comfortable traveling to and exploring new cities.

I'm enjoying this new chapter of my life and look forward to continuing with my house sit experiences, transitioning from shorter, US-based sits to sitting in many other places, both domestic and international, including longer term sits. Giving fellow travelers peace of mind knowing that their homes and pets are being loved and cared for is my primary goal. I enjoy living an active lifestyle that includes hiking, biking, yoga and eating primarily a vegetarian diet. I have been fortunate to do many sits for referals and people outside of this site and can provide an updated list of references upon request. A sampling of some of my reviews:

"From the moment he arrived, we had no doubt Dolly & Peter were in good hands under Ben's care. While we were gone, Ben kept in constant communication and sent lots of pictures. When we got home, the dogs were chilled out and stress-free. In addition to taking great care of the pups, Ben took great care of our house and gardens, too. He was caring, respectful and a joy to have in our home. He was easily one of the best sitters we’ve ever had." Brandon - Buffalo, NY

"Ben was so detail oriented, compassionate, thorough, experienced and immediately put us and our dogs at ease. Our dogs loved and responded so well to him, and his friendly and calm manner made us feel so comfortable." Kate - Boise, ID

"Ben has sat for us on several occasions, most recently during our 2-week holiday to Scotland. Ben not only takes great care of the pets, but our home as well. He keeps us updated on the pets and sends photos so we can see how they are doing. He walks them, takes the dogs to the beach and even takes care of our pool and landscaping. I was completely at ease knowing that everything was under control, as it always is with Ben, while we were away." Ilene - Jupiter, FL

"Ben is gentle, kind and an animal lover at heart. He is also considerate and conscientious. He has taken care of our cat, Boris, on several occasions. Recently, while we were in London, Ben stayed in our home in Fort Lauderdale. Ben is very respectful of our home and it is always clean and orderly when he leaves. I very selfishly recommend him, only hoping he doesn't get too popular." - Annette - Fort Lauderdale, FL

Thanks for your consideration and happy travels.
