Dave was absolutely awesome. He not only took care of our dog but made us feel at ease the entire day we were away. Our dog really seemed to warm up to him quickly and we felt very comfortable trusting Dave in our home while we were away. This was an A++ experience. Thanks again Dave!

David did a wonderful job taking care of my dogs Apollo and Charlie. Apollo just had ear surgery and had to be given medicine (and wear the Cone of Shame - poor guy), and David did a great job making sure he was comfortable and keeping up with the medication. He also updated me regularly with pictures and comments. I highly recommend David to any dog parent!

Patient and trustworthy pet care

When David watches your pet

I'm very active and enjoying running and biking, so I will be keeping your dog active with me. I love taking dogs to parks or beaches, such as Trolley Barn Park, the Grape Street agility course in South Park, Balboa Park Dog Park, and anywhere I go hiking, just to name a few. I'm also an expert at throwing balls and frisbees for fetch, but I try to tailor the activity to the energy level of the dog.
