Drew provides a wonderful service at an affordable rate. Now we can go out of town without having to make an extra trip to a kennel where the dogs are caged and uncomfortable. The dogs are happy, the plants get water, and the mail brought inside all for a great price and people you can trust in your home. Highly recommend Drew and “Just a Walk in the Park” to all my friends.
As the owners of an older yellow lab who needed to be walked more frequently, we needed a solution when we were out of the house for more than a few hours. Drew was perfect for our needs. He was kind and caring to Jake who loved him. He was completely dependable. His services were indispensable. I would recommend to any dog owner who needs help with their pet.
We want to express our delight regarding Drew’s work/visits with Bentley a short time ago. Drew was prompt in arriving to tutor our Bentley and really made a hit with him. He is very knowledgeable, patient and he worked with him in such a way that Bentley remembers what he learned to this day. We didn’t know what to expect but were very pleased with Drew’s way of winning over his student and Bentley is so much more manageable as he grows from puppy to an adult pet (almost eight months old now!). We can highly recommend Drew and we plan to utilize his talents going forward.

We love having Drew as our pet sitter for our three year old golden retriever, Molly We have tried several kennels but each time Molly has come home with “issues”. This is not the case when Drew is caring for her in her own home.
Drew takes care of another dog in the neighborhood and I always know Molly sees him because her tail never stops wagging until she gets her hug from Drew. Even if Drew is riding by in the car while Molly and I are walking, he always stops to give Molly a loving. She adores him.
My husband and I always have peace of mind when we are away knowing that Drew is taking good care of our beloved pet as well as taking in the mail and newspaper and watching over our home.
We know Molly is in good hands when Drew watches her!

We have had the pleasure of doing business with Drew and Just a Walk in the Park for over a year. He began by dog-sitting for my elderly mother’s dog Annie while she was on vacation. As time progressed and she wasn’t able to walk Annie as often and as far as she needed, Drew began to walk her every day. He became a constant in her life and both my mom and Annie looked forward to his daily visits. Annie has since come to live with us and our dog Buster and Drew is now walking them both twice a week. He is prompt and pleasant and always leaves a note to report on their walk. Drew has really become a trusted friend to both the humans and the dogs in our house. I would highly recommend Just a Walk in the Park for any dog care needs you may have.

Just a Walk in the Park is not your average pet service. Drew goes above and beyond caring for my four year old Yorkie, Rutledge. Drew is very reliable and caring and I never have to worry about Rutledge because I know is very well taken care of. I highly recommend Drew and Just a Walk in the Park.
Drew Kaufman has worked for me since January, 2014, walking and playing with my dog, Bella. He was referred to me by a close friend who has used him repeatedly when they were out of town. He came to meet Bella before he started helping with her. The most important thing is that Bella loves Drew. He is always dependable and can be called upon at the last minute. I just have to text him and he responds promptly. He is very responsible and leaves a daily report of his time here, what he did exactly, and her activities (whether she peed or pooped). His father takes care of his business when he is out of town. My dog is very active and loves to play on the beach, whenever it is allowed. When I first went back to work and used Drew, he would take her to the beach and throw the ball to her. She is a golden retriever so that is her favorite activity. I was always relieved to come home and she was tired and could wait a few minutes before I had to walk her. I always know that I can depend on Drew and that makes me feel comfortable while I’m at work. I love his response when I tell him the days I need him. He always responds “no problem”.
Drew is a positive, kind young man, and I am glad I have this opportunity to highly recommend him. If you would like to talk to me, or have questions, please feel free to contact me.
When I found myself suddenly a widow, I knew it was imperative to find someone to walk my three big dogs daily. Having a full time job, I was in need for someone to come for early morning walks and be available at a phone calls notice, if I was delayed or running late from work, or an occasional evening meeting. Alas, Drew was recommended by a friend and has now taken on the full time role for two years. His conscientious attitude and calm demeanor allow me to rest assured the three dogs and two cats at home are well taken care of. An occasional trip allows me the freedom of having a good time, knowing he is staying in my home and keeping the schedule as close to routine as possible. Most importantly, the dogs are always so happy to see him, and that is the best testimonial of all!
Thank you Drew for your loyalty, respect, and strong regard for taking responsibility of my furry family!
f you want a reliable and caring professional, Drew Kaufman is definitely the one to call. We are so relieved to have someone who we can completely trust and rely on to take care of our three-year-old rescued cat. I no longer worry when we are away on trips, as he texts us to tell us all is well. Drew responds promptly and always keeps his records straight but, most importantly, he has totally won over our male cat “Burgee” who is a very tough judge. Burgee says “Call Drew! He’s the best!”

Drew has been a great resource for my husband and I enabling us to travel away from home without worries. After a bad experience boarding our coon hound ( a sensitive sort ) we looked for someone who could look after our 2 dogs and a “herd” of outside cats. Keeping the whole group fed and watered and loved is quite a job but Drew handles it easily. He comes to the house several times daily to take care of our four legged friends and also waters flowers and brings packages and mail inside. We feel lucky to have found him and about 8 times a year we call on him to help us out. I recommend him with pleasure!
Drew is a great dog sitter and trainer! We first met Drew about 2 years ago. He did some training with our Bull Mastiff. After that, we have used him as a dog sitter quite frequently. I would highly recommend Drew for either training or dog sitting. We now have a Yorkie along with our Bull Mastiff. Both dogs love Drew as much as we do. He will come by during the days when we need him or will stay overnight if we request. It is so nice being able to be gone for a few days and know that your pets are being well taken care of. Drew is awesome!
Had the good fortune of being introduced to Drew Kaufman by Evergreen Pet Lodge when I inquired about dog walkers in the area. Drew came over to my villa and met Luckee, my beagle/boxer mixed two-year old dog. After watching him interact with my dog, I immediately hired him to train my dog. What an amazing difference a few sessions with Drew made! I went from having an insanely behaving animal to having a docile dog on a loose leash. Drew had great insight into the way a dog “thinks” and helped me know how to get the behavior from her I wanted. When I found out his business was licensed, bonded and insured and that he had wonderful references, I also hired Drew to stay with Luckee whenever I went out of town. I am more than happy to recommend Drew for all of your pet’s needs.
Drew has been training and puppy sitting iko since he was only a year old. Three years later he still our go to guy when we are away. We trust Drew with our Iko and our House.
