Hello! My name is Ben, and I'm an Athens, Ohio, native. My educational background is in fuel cells and alternative energy. Upon adopting my very handsome rescue dog Felix in 2015, I realized how passionate I am about spending time with and caring for animals.

I also enjoy being active, so I decided to pursue a career that combines my love for animals with my interest in pursuing a healthy lifestyle. I've always wanted to start my own company, and in 2019, I created Ben's Friends – a professional dog walking and pet sitting service. I have a strong connection with animals – I love them, and they love me! You can trust me with your best friends, your pets. I'm dependable, reliable and professional. You can count on me to make sure your pets get the care and attention they deserve.

I am insured, and a proud member of Pet Sitter's International.

Here I am with my best friend Felix!
