Dave is great! He is prompt and reliable. Great with our high energy pup and tires him out! Dave is always in our rotation of dog sitters to call!

Dave was incredible with our 5 month old puppy over Memorial Day weekend. Dave is a laid-back guy, but very much an alpha to the dogs, which yields great results. Our pup got to go on several adventures with Dave - redwood grove! fort funston beach! - and socialized with several sweet other dogs during her time there as well, so it really felt as if we left her at a high class resort with a personal ...

Dave took great care of Jake, my energetic 2 year old toller. He sent many pictures of Jake in full play mode. His place is great for dogs to run around and explore. I look forward to booking with Dave again.

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

I have a busy schedule this summer, so I unfortunately cannot take on new clients for day care or boarding. If you are a previous client, reach out to me directly. Thanks!
-----
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.

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!
