Super quick response for a last minute request. Our Luna dog had friends to play with and going for walks. Got plenty of pictures during her stay. Highly recommended :-)

Another wonderful stay for my dog! Derek sent us many photos on their walks, playing with other dogs, and with Derek’s kids.

Responsible, Experienced Pet LOVER

What Derek would like to know about your dog

I love all dogs! I would like to known if they have been socialized with other animals, children and adults. If they have separation anxiety or any other needs I should be aware of. Most importantly what are their favorite toys, activities and music they like to chill out to. :)

When Derek watches your pet

I love to go on walks, runs and hikes around the neighborhood and all over the bay. If the pup is well socialized we can check out the dog parks and play fetch in an enclosed area. My safe home and yard are the ideal place for your beloved family member to feel welcomed, loved, engaged and at ease until they are reunited with you.
