Maya, One of Uncle Bruce's Guests“Uncle’ Bruce Marshall has been providing PERSONAL, PROFESSIONAL pet care and companionship for dogs, cats, and birds since 1998.
He provides daily, individual walks for dogs; boards them in his home and stays overnight with them at their home.
“When I take a dog out, the only thing  I bring with me is a leash and a plastic bag”, says Bruce.

“My focus is 100 percent on your dog. I am an active, athletic, outdoorsy person who can give your dog lots of
exercise, even on leash.”

Doggy day care is available on a select basis; maximum two dogs at a
time (three if from the same household).

And, Bird care too!, Parrots a specialty!

“I can’t say enough good things about Bruce.  I believe he loved our dog Charlie [see picture] as much as we did.  I know our dog loved him like crazy.  He cared for our beloved pooch for roughly 6 years…..  His work ethic is strong and he never, ever missed a day.  He was always available in an emergency and I trusted Bruce implicitly.

I knew I had struck gold with him when we had to leave town for 2 weeks and, upon our return, our dog looked at us like “oh, you’re home?” and continued his afternoon nap.  That spoke volumes about the care he received in our absence.

I highly, highly recommend Bruce for your pets.”

“My sightless Italian Greyhound was a shy, withdrawn dog when I left him with Bruce as a boarder.
When I picked him up , to my amazement, he was outgoing, affectionate, and fearless!
I will be forever grateful to Bruce for the gift of Pietro’s  newfound confidence.

He is a true life ‘dog whisperer’
