Frank and Elaine were wonderful and so incredibly accommodating! They took excellent care of our dogs and we will absolutely use them again.

It's hard to know if the dogs enjoy themselves or not at a sitter. After we got back from our trip, I walked the dogs back over to Frank's; they saw Frank in the yard and ran towards him in joy, kissing him. That's how I know they had a great time ...

We had a great experience with Frank watching our dog. He kept us updated and made us feel comfortable that our dog was in good hands, and it was clear she had fun with his dogs. Both Frank and his wife Elaine were a pleasure to work with, and were very accommodating and friendly. We are grateful that they were able to watch our dog while we were away for a few days, and highly ...

About this sitter:

My wife and I offer boarding for dogs weighing up to 25 pounds. My name is Frank DeMarco and I have worked with dogs for over 35 years. We offer boarding for special needs or just plain special small dogs. Your dog will live in our home as one of our own. They get on the furniture, sleep on our bed, and play in our totally secure large backyard under our supervision. ...

What Frank would like to know about your dog

I have a detailed questionnaire boarders fill-in before the dog's first stay. Besides owner info and medical info on the dog it asks questions about your dog’s preferences and behavior.

When Frank watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I want your dog's stay to be safe and stress-free. I have a large yard for the dogs to enjoy. I do not walk guest dogs. While your dog may like me I am not you. If something happens (your leash breaks, the collar comes off, I drop the leash) and your dog is running free they will probably look for you rather than come to me. By staying in my yard the problem is non-existent. They exercise, play, or just relax in a very safe and controlled setting.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Dogs sleep where you want them to sleep. While I do have crates available if you want me to crate your dog, most dogs sleep either on the couch or on my bed. It is my goal to make your dog's stay here as safe and stress-free as possible.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Dog sitting is something I do full time now that I am retired. I am not a student, a part time employee or anything else. On average I am with your dog 22 hours a day. I do go out to shop, have dinner or an occasional evening out but it is never for more than 4 hours.
