  1. WHO THA FUCK WANTS TO LISTEN TO THIS SHIT , YOU CBS STUPID NEWS MOTHER FUCKERS , HOW ABOUT YOU REPORT ON THE BILDERBERG GROUP INSTEAD OF GIVING US THIS FULL OF SHIT REPORT ABOUT A FUCKING STUPID DOG.

  2. Typical Kneegrow..taking advantage /getting too familiar sans establishing a rapport
    with those who were willing to employ him.

  3. YOu are a full of shit. Why would this guy take your beers if he was not suppose to? It is obvious you will complain to his company and he will be fired and charged with a theft. What a fake story.

  4. Our pet sitter moved in for the whole week we weren't there.
    He stayed nights. He brought hookers into our house. He brought alcohol into our home. Ate our food. And abused our three 9 week old kittens. We found them at a kill shelter hours from their time to be euthanized. We found out our neighbor found them crying outside in 30 degree weather. On their property. Our neighbor said he took car of them three days. And then took them to the shelter. Bcuz his wife was allergic.
    They were there as long as possible. And then scheduled to be killed.
    We msged the marine pet sitter many times asking for pictures. And how "they were sick"
    Our kittens are healthy. And cute cuddly kittens strays. We had found and claimed.

    He had thrown out our stuff. Used our things. Brought people over. We came home and got complaints that WE were rude to our neighbors. When it was him and his sluts.
    We had to explain we hired a pet sitter we had thought was reliable.
    But I'm pressing charges. Idk what for but I'll find a way to make him pay for me a pregnant women who was told I'm at high risk of a preterm delivery nearly losing both real baby and my kitten babies.

    Unacceptable…

    If you know what I could charge him with please tell me. It would really help.

  5. I would rather have somebody criminally insane watch my children that you have somebody walk my dog I'll do that myself nobody will touch my dog

  7. Can anyone out there please tell me what breed of dog Rocco is? He is the very same as mine but each time I ask the vets they keep saying mine is a jack Russell cross when I ask cross with what no one can tell me. Rocco has the very same body nose face ears size etc etc as our Barry. Very keen to know Rocco’s breed!

  8. 20/30 years ago we would have never let strangers into our home or gotten into a car with a stranger. Technology has made us stupid!

  9. Uuhh am i the only one who doesnt see the big deal with this?? Like wtf come on ppl he simply took a few drinks. Big fkn deal. If this is big news then idk wtf this world is coming to

  10. They may vet for top quality dog walkers but they have to vet for work ethic, honestly and commitment. I would have not settled for 6 months of free dog walking. I would have sued and gotten all of my money back and then some for a year of shabby service. Shame on this business, the "Uber of dog walkers." It would be laughable it if weren't so criminal. He cheated and stole. Amazing. His name should also be published.

  11. You have been violated due to our shoddy services, therefore you get six months more free service? OMG. Pay for the beers and stuff from the fridge, pay a fine for your employee having violated the premises, pay another fine for the poor doggie only getting a 10 minute walk, and then give a good-faith payment of about $5000. How do these cheapskate people stay in business? Six months' free service. He ought to have all his neighbor's dogs at his house for each day of free walking.

  12. And this is why i prefer to just do my dog walking and sitting on my own. Dont want to be associated with people who do this crap. ?

    And the dumbest part is a lot of people actually do tell you to make yourself at home. Ive been told im free to eat what i want, use the bathroom and all that stuff. But its when you havent been given that go ahead that being a snoop and eating their food is crossing a line. I can see how that would make someone feel violated. Sad that people can't respect other's property.

  13. Moral of the story… Always have a security camera (they're cheap, less than $26 with no subscription required), and always let potential dog walkers, cleaning crew, or whoever you allow into your home unsupervised KNOW that there is a camera.

  14. Omg I would nevvvver…I walk dogs and I barely like to look around with my eyes when I'm in a client's home…in and outttt.

  15. I'm a pet sitter and the most I do if I need to sit is take five minute drink some water and wash the cup. Then I just do my job.
