I'm retired military with advanced degrees in engineering who has lived around the world and owned and maintained several houses. I am very active mountain biking and skiing, and have hobies in cabinetry, trail building, and traveling. I grew up with a wide array of pets, but really enjoy an active, fit dog who can join me exploring nearby forests. My parents raised show dogs, I raised and trained three dog as pets, plus I helped my daughter raise a guide dog puppy. I have extensive experience caring for and training dogs.  

I don't smoke and am too old to party. I am house and pet sitting because I want to experience new neighborhoods and areas to explore what assets they have to offer with eye toward building my own house in the next 2 or 3 years. I've lived in and around the Sierra and Rocky mountains for 27 years, but there's still so much to see and explore.

“ I’m so very thankful for Scott! He took care of my house, garden, indoor plants and most important, my 80# dog, Buki! ”

I was looking for someone who was mature, flexible and who wasn't afraid of a challenge. It's always difficult to get ready for a long trip, making sure you've got everything in order and ready to go on the home front as well as the travel plans. Scott came a day early and was willing to help with my last minute packing, learn the house secrets as well as where Buki takes his morning walks. 

Scott has dog training experience and Buki now "heels" by my side and no longer sleeps with me!  I can actually get a good nights sleep! I was concerned about leaving for such a long period of time if Buki would have anxiety whenever I left home. Scott took him on hikes, bike rides and for swims in our local lake. I know Buki enjoyed his time with Scott by the way he would wag his tail and nuzzle him. It has been a good experience for Buki he seems to appreciate me more and also has another human friend whose important to him.

My house was spotless when I came home. My indoor plants and garden all thriving.

I can't say enough good things about Scott.
