Found Ned online, have relied on him 4 times
I needed a house sitter for my 4 little rescue dogs last November. After spending hours on the phone tracking down recommendations with no luck, took to the internet, where I came upon Ned’s web site. This sounded too good to be true. Ned promptly returned my call, set up an interview, and we were up and running. I knew the minute he walked in to my home that this was the one I wanted to care for my dogs. He hit it off with them immediately.
I have one dog who is very shy, having come from an abusive environment. He took to Ned immediately, and they have been best buddies ever since. Scrappy usually takes to no one, but there was something about Ned he felt comfortable with, so for me that sealed the deal.
I had a few concerns about leaving for a month-long trip…what if something should happen at the last minute and he had to cancel and I was stuck? He put a back-up plan together, and I was off. Ned kept me up- dated every few days, and handled any minor issues that arose. I returned to a spotless house and 4 very happy dogs.
Ned has sat for me on 3 other occasions. The dogs go crazy with delight when Ned walks into the house…and Scrappy! He becomes a changed dog when Ned is around, and very few people have ever been able to gain Scrappy’s trust like Ned. They are walked every day and loves them as his own pets. I fully endorse Ned as a house sitter/pet sitter without reservation, and know that when Ned is there, I can leave with confidence and return to happy dogs and a clean, well-maintained home.
