You can't do any better for pet care than Ben. So reliable and caring, with credentials to back his wonderful service. His pet photography skills are amazing too!

Ben is the best! He’s professional, friendly, reliable, and, perhaps most importantly, he genuinely connects with and cares for animals. He also sends the best pictures of your furry friends while you’re away! Highly recommend!

We love Ben's Friends pet service. Ben is phenomenal...loves on your pets as if they were his own! Sure is a pleasure knowing our geriatric pups are in good hands when we can't be there. Many thanks!

Ben’s friends is an excellent pet-family service. Ben is very flexible with time slots for pet care and can accommodate as many or few visits as needed. I was very pleased with the quality of time spent providing basic care and then play/exercise with our two dogs. We enjoyed receiving updates and pictures too. I trust Ben with our pets and the key to our house. Ben’s Friends is highly recommended by the Mitchell family.

My sister moved to Athens with her dog Jake. When she moved in, the back yard was not fenced and she had trouble walking Jake. Luckily we were told about Ben’s Friends. We set up a regular schedule with Ben to walk Jake. Ben never misses a day...rain or shine! Jake loves him. I strongly recommend Ben to anyone who wants a happy, friendly, well exercised dog.

We have used Ben's Friends several times, and Ben is terrific. On the front end, he promptly responds to requests for appointments, and he shows up right on time. He sends us pictures of our dogs while they are out on the walk, and we always return home to 2 very happy dogs! We will definitely use his service again in the future!

My dogs have a whole new outlook on life. They’re reconditioned with positive attention and exercise during a part of the day they need it most. Each time I come home from work to these furballs they are happier and healthier.

Tom and I used Ben to walk our dogs when we both were ill and unable to do so. Ben was always on time and it was obvious that he really liked our dogs and also enjoyed the walks himself! Our dogs came back happy and well exercised. We really recommend him as a great dog walker.

What a relief to find an affordable and nicer option than resorting to kennels! I’ve only just started using Ben’s services but he is professional, cares about his clients and takes his time with them. My dogs are noticeably calmer when I return from a trip and I look forward to using Ben’s Friends for all my future dog-sitting needs.

Ben is a favorite person with my two dogs and cat. When I have to be gone from them he comes over for feeding and playtime, nice to know they have a friend in Ben. ♥️ ~Cheryl Cesta & Vinnie

The highlight of my dogs’ day is with Ben of Ben’s Friends! He’s helpful and insightful with both our 9-year-old black lab and our 1-year-old lab/pit ball of energy. Ben even gives us tips on training and encourages us to try new things with the pup. Highly recommend Ben’s Friends!

Ben is wonderful with all animals! My cats both love him!
~Michele Fiala and Frodo & Samwise

There was an immediate connection between Ben and our pups. They drool over him! Ben is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He listened and asked questions regarding both dogs and their needs, behaviors and our expectations while we were away. I can’t describe how relaxed he made me feel about leaving, he eliminated the stress I previously had of leaving the dogs for two weeks.

During my time away, Ben stayed in excellent communication on a daily basis. He sent updates and photos and little notes on their behaviors. Knowing my dog children were getting this kind of love and TLC while I was away allowed me to enjoy my vacation fully. Ben is trustworthy, reliable and offers affordable pet sitting services. He truly is the bees knees, and thank you for setting my mind at ease. We love you, Ben’s Friends!

Ben and my new pup Max quickly became special buddies. They have great walks, romps and very helpful lessons. I trust Ben and his judgement, and Max and I enjoy his visits.

I am so happy to recommend Ben. He has helped me learn how to better manage my small dog on walks. My dog has a tendency to be aggressive towards others dogs he meets along the way. Ben patiently helped us using his own dog Felix to help Mr. Smidgen learn to walk along without being a pest to other dogs.

He is always great about responding to requests and is reliable. I feel comfortable having him come into the house when we are not home to get our dog out for a nice walk. He is a "dog whisperer" and his kindness  and savvy ensures that our dog is happy to go with him when he arrives. 
~Jeanne Heaton & Mr. Smidgen
