Don is absolutely the best! I can't imagine a better sitter for our Maverick. He enjoys playing with Hunter, going on walks, and cuddling with Melody. We always feel completely comfortable when Maverick stays with Don and that is a huge relief....knowing that our little guy is well cared for!

Don is one of the best. I was grateful he was super accommodating when my travel plans went awry. I look forward to booking again with him in the future.

Don is the only place I feel comfortable leaving my senior dog with. He’s easy to communicate with and has been watching Mimi for several years. Very thankful for him and the services he provides.

Dog lover with intuitive skills

My animal husbandry interest began when I was a child growing up on a farm. We had dogs, cows, chickens, cats, geese, peacocks, emus, pigs etc. Love for dogs and other animals is a good starting place but to effectively care for them requires a deeper understanding of their needs. My wife and I enjoy getting to know the personalities of the dogs we care for and making them feel like our house is their ...

What Don would like to know about your dog

I am currently focusing on my current client base with limited availability for new clients. Please inquire if you feel your dog would be a good match for my home. Since we only take one dog at a time, we do not double book daycare and boarding service on the same days.
Pick up for daycare is typically by 6 pm.
