I have been in the St Petersburg area since I started college in 2017. At USF, I’m studying Biology and Chemistry for my B.S. and will be graduating this year! Before moving to St Pete, I lived in Trinity, in the same house since I was born. Having grown up with cocker spaniels in the house, dogs have always been a huge part of my life. I was often tasked with taking care of the neighbors’ animals when they were on vacation, including iguanas, snakes, birds, fish, and of course, the dogs.
Recently, I have found my love for cats because of my girlfriend Sarah (also from Calling All Dogs). We moved in together to be close to the university and her cats Natasha and Vladimir (who can be seen on my chest in the photo), have been great company! Before, I wasn’t around cats very often because of my brother’s cat allergy, but now I am a verified cat-dad 🙂
On the side, I am a musician, having been a guitar player since I was 8 years old. I currently play guitar in a progressive metal band, but in the past I have studied jazz and was recognized as Pasco’s all-county jazz guitarist for each year of high school.
We adopted a 6 month old aussie-doodle - named Ozzy a few months ago. I was in a little bit of a panic - as we had several trips planned throughout the summer - and now we had a puppy!! I called "Calling All Dogs" and talked with Steve, the owner. Steve is a life-saver for us!! He has taken Ozzy for overnight "visits" - 5 nights to be exact - and he kept us up to date with pics and texts of what Ozzy was up to. I think Ozzy has found a second home!! We can leave Ozzy with Steve and know there is absolutely nothing to worry about. Steve is the absolute best! If you need someone to take really, really good care of your four legged "baby" - don't hesitate to give "Calling All Dogs" a call. Thanks Steve! Dan and Pat Finn
I had a wonderful experience using Calling All Dogs as a dog walking service for my new puppy! I was able to meet my dog walker Jen prior to scheduling any services which gave me comfort that she loved my dog as much as I do and would take great care of him. Scheduling walks was really simple and they were able to be flexible when I requested a more specific time frame. I LOVED getting a picture and note updating me on how Finn enjoyed his walk.
Calling All Dogs is an amazing service. Upon first contacting the company, I was greeted with nothing but professional and friendly conversation. The owner of the company, as well as our potential dog sitters, visited our home and interacted with Ike and Jack for nearly an hour. During our absence from our pups, the sitters always stayed in touch with us and provided GPS tracking documentation anytime our pups were walked. Because Ike and Jack are older, they required medication and some extra attention. The staff from Calling All Dogs implemented the medical plan just as my husband or I would have done. I cannot say enough about how incredible this company is. We will use them everytime we need to be away. Keith/Tom
This is the only place to go if you need a pet sitter. You meat the team that would be responsible for the pet sitting, they spend quality time with your pet, and are very reliable.
