Responsible, Experienced Insured pet and house sitter: Just moved to Round Rock from San Diego County.
I am primarily a dog sitter, but have experience with cats and birds also. I sit your home and Watch your pets while you are away. I take your pet on up to two walks a day, with ample play time in your home or yard. I will watch up to three pets of any size for my regular fee. An extra small fee after that. I am used to large dogs, as I had a brace of Irish Wolfhounds a while back. I have experience with dogs with behavioral problems. I am honest and will leave your home at least as clean as I found it. I will bring in the mail and take out the trash, water your plants, and clean up after your dogs in your yard while I am there. I have reliable transportation and am insured. I can be a pet transporter for vet or any other visits you may require. I have named my business after my loving little min pin who died of cancer.

Terry has been nothing short of AMAZING. I was so fortunate to find him when he lived in California. It is so rare to find someone who will stay at your home but this was huge for me. I didn't want my dogs and cat to be alone for long periods of time. 2 of my 3 dogs also had medical needs which were addressed by Terry during his care. Terry walks the dogs and complied with our feeding schedule. Terry is 1000% reliable and trustworthy! I am happy for his new adventure in Texas but so sad he had to leave us. I have found he is irreplaceable. You are so fortunate to stumble on this treasure!

I am happy to take calls from any potential clients!

I needed a pet sitter on short notice for my 15 year old Yellow Lab and contacted Terry. Terry came to meet me and Rocky the next day. I knew instantly that Terry was a trustworthy genuine human being and a caring lover of animals. I advised Terry that my Rocky was very needy and most likely would make him get up several times at night because this is something my dog has started doing in his old age. Barking a lot and needing someone to help him from the garage to outside several times during the day and night. Well, Terry said he was up for it.
And as I discovered Terry was true to his word. He spent more time with Rocky that I had paid him for and was a loving and nurturing caretaker sitter. Terry also cared for my home like it was his own and even washed the sheets and remade the bed which I was so surprised about and impressed with. Terry is an honest down to earth man who I am so lucky to have met. I would recommend him to anyone that may have an inquiry and would hire Terry again if he was up for the task. A truly wonderful man.

We have had Terry house/animal sit for a weekend as well as over a 10 day time period. On both occasions Terry has been punctual in arriving and stayed in contact with us via text and calls as often as required. He is cognizant of the animals' habits and lets us know if anything is amiss. He follows directions to the letter in terms of pet feeding, house-tending, and plant care. Terry treats our animals as if they were his own and gives them time and attention. Terry has proven to us that he is trustworthy in caring for the animals as well as our home.

Terry has been my regular dog sitter for about two years now. One of the main reasons is that Terry is very good with difficult animals. He has a key to my
house, as I am an on-call nurse and sometimes have to leave for an assignment without much notice.
I have two rescue dogs, each with very different behavioral issues. Lucy was found homeless, taken to a no-kill shelter where she was treated for lung disease for several months, adopted, then relinquished after about a year when her senior caregivers were forced to give up all their animals. She was labeled "very shy & nervous" at the shelter. She has come a long way in the six years I have had her, but will always be a fearful dog. Dog professional, Cesar Milan, advises a fearful dog can be the most difficult to rehabilitate. Terry somehow nearly instantly made friends with her - this is extremely unusual. Most people she never accepts, especially males.

Sir Winston has a history of neglect the first 18 months of his life. He was isolated on the back of a farm with almost no human or animal interaction, could not count on regular water or food, and was left out in freezing weather on even the coldest nights in Michigan. He is a nice dog in the house, but aggressive with just about any stimulus outdoors, including people and animals.
In light of these issues, not just anybody can take care of my dogs. One of the things Terry has been able to do with Sir Winston is correct his pulling while on a leash. He has also been able to get him to curb his incessant barking. He continues to work with him on those issues.
If there are any questions you have, feel free to ask Terry for my phone number, and I will call you back promptly.

Our family has used Mr. Terry Bernardo for over a year to walk our two dogs, Tommie Girl & Tuffy. We couldn't be more satisfied. Terry not only does this as a means of making a living but it becomes quickly evident that he is a true animal lover and our pets took to him immediately and love him dearly. Two of my concerns in finding a pet walker were: A-finding someone I felt would be honest as we were going to trust him coming into our home with his own key and B- Someone I could rely on to be there and be prompt. He comes through with flying colors on both fronts. In fact he has never missed a day!! We often ask him at the last minute to come and help us on off schedule times when unexpected things come up. . ..HE HAS NEVER LET US DOWN! You will be pleased also to hire this good man.
