Meet Tim

Tim started BCS in 2015 and steadily earned a reputation as the most reliable and compassionate pet sitter in the area. If he says he’ll be there, he’ll be there.

When it comes to dog training, Tim only uses humane, positive-reinforcement methods based on the latest animal behavioral science and endorsed by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.

During busy seasons, Tim occasionally employs thoroughly vetted independent contractors to help with sitting and dog walking. At this time, Tim provides all training services.

 

Current Availability

If BCS is going to be closed for any length of time, that information will be posted here at least one week in advance.

BCS is currently open for business during normal hours.

 

Services & Rates

Bulk discounts are available for some services; please see the Discounts & Specials section

In-Home Sitting

Most pets feel a lot better staying at home than going to a kennel or a stranger’s house. We only do in-home sitting, for their comfort and yours.

$30 per 30-minute visit

Dog Walking

Your pups get bored and restless when you’re on vacation or at work all day. Let us make sure they get their exercise (and a little extra companionship).

$30 per 30-minute walk

Dog Training

BCS offers basic, intermediate, and advanced training courses. Each course is comprised of six one-hour sessions, and the last one is free!

$60/hour

Behavior Modification

Truly aggressive dogs can often (but not always) be rehabilitated. Consider expert training before you surrender or euthanize an aggressive dog.

$75/hour

Overnight Care

We’re more than happy to stay with your pets overnight if you’re out of town for an extended period of time. Includes dinner, breakfast, and 2 walks.

$60/night

Pet TAxi Service

Need your pet taken to the vet or to a play date for some exercise, but can’t drive them yourself? Let us get your pet wherever they need to go.

$40/roundtrip + mileage

Why BCS?

By far, the most common complaint we hear from our clients is that most pet sitters aren’t reliable. We don’t understand why so many pet sitters and dog trainers cancel on their clients at the last minute, but you have our guarantee that once you’re on our calendar, we’ll take care of you and your pets on time, every time.

Reviews from Real Pet Parents

Tim took the time to come over, meet the pets and I could tell immediately that they were comfortable with him. I found Tim trustworthy, pleasant and professional. I’ve just returned from a business trip, and Tim took fantastic care of them with brilliant communication.

—Patrick H.

Tim was wonderful with my dog. He would text me to let me know how the walk went, and he always noticed if my older dog was sore or anxious. I appreciated that, especially in contrast to other, franchise services that simply fill out forms about your dog’s mood with smiley or unhappy faces.

—Jennifer O.

Would highly recommend Tim and BCS! Tim is an excellent trainer and very patient both with our dog and with us while we all learn and master new skills! We are very comfortable having him in our home. He is highly reliable, flexible and is a great communicator!

—Kim L.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose BCS?

BCS is fully insured; many pet sitters are not. In addition, Tim loves working with animals so much that he left a decade-long career in healthcare to start BCS. Search for BCS on Google and read positive reviews ​left by highly satisfied clients.

How far do you travel?

Anywhere within 10(ish) miles of the intersection of N Gilbert Rd. and W Guadalupe Rd.

What kinds of animals do you have experience caring for?

We have many years of experience with all commonly domesticated animals, including livestock and reptiles.

What is your payment and refund policy?

We prefer cash but do accept payments by check and debit/credit card. Payment is due in full before services are rendered. Cancellations with at least 24 hours notice will receive a full refund. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will receive a full refund minus the $55 booking deposit. Checks returned for insufficient funds will incur a fee of 5% or $35, whichever is greater. ​Gratuities are always appreciated but never expected.

What is your cancellation/no-show policy?

Unfortunately, prospective clients who fail to keep appointments and do not cancel ahead of time are a very common problem, and we’ve had to adopt a strict no-call/no-show policy as a result. In addition to the refund terms listed above, clients who fail to appear for scheduled meetings or training sessions and do not notify us in advance will forfeit the entire cost of services booked for that day. We understand this is a very uncompromising stance to take, and we regret having to take it, but “ghosting” is a rampant problem and it severely reduces our ability to provide great service. Please make every effort to contact us as far in advance as possible if you must change or cancel an appointment.

Why do you require a booking deposit?

Prior to implementing deposits, roughly 50% of prospective new clients did not keep their first appointments and did not give adequate notice to cancel. Not only is this frustrating for us, it causes problems for our other clients who are denied service because of no-call/no-shows.

In order to confirm an appointment with BCS, we require a $55 deposit, payable by credit or debit card. This deposit will be applied to your final invoice but will be forfeited if you fail to cancel at least 24 hours in advance.
