Dave was awesome. Took good care of our dog Happy and sent us several pictures. I could see that Happy was having lots of fun.
Thank you Dave.

This was Ben's second stay with Dave, and just like the first, it went really well. Communication with Dave is fast and thorough, we got lots of pictures, Ben was very happy and so are we.

i was worried nobody would want to take on a 3 month puppy, but dave did for 2 days and did an awesome job. finley had a lot of fun, and dave was great about his willingness to redirect some of finley's less desirable puppy traits (ie biting lol) in a positive manner. it was nice to see pictures from throughout the day as well. i'll definitely see if dave is available next time i ...

Reliable, fenced yard, work at home

I love all animals but especially dogs. I grew up with black labs as a kid. And I have had dogs myself since 2000 when I purchased my first home. I volunteered as a dog walker at the Palo Alto Animal Shelter. And I also helped my friends out with dog care over the years. I am an active dog walker on the Wag app, where I maintain a 5-star rating and consistently get tips ...

What Dave would like to know about your dog

Before boarding your furry friend in my home, I require a meet-and-greet to ensure that it would be a good fit for me and my dog Bodie. And while I encourage it as well for other services (walks and drop-ins), it is optional. While I will take larger dogs (50+ lbs), they need to be well behaved and not too high-energy. Older large dogs have worked out well in the past.

I require a one night deposit to book a boarding stay that is non-refundable. Also if you drop off in the morning/midday and then pick up in the afternoon or evening (a gap of more than a few hours), I require one day of daycare.

Drop-off times are generally 7-9am, and pickup times 4–6pm. I can generally be flexible during the day, and occasionally in the evenings as well. But please let us discuss the details specifically before you rely on it. Thanks!
