About Larry

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I've never been without at least one dog my whole life! I work from home, which allows me to pay attention to canine guests as well as my own dogs pretty much all day as needed.

Palm Springs airport is roughly a 5 minute drive from here, making it really convenient when you're on your way in or out of town.

I have a nice yard -- "desert landscaping" which means no grass. There's an awesome pool for dogs who like to swim! A couple walks each day gives them access to green spaces. I often spend time at the dog park and, with your permission, would love to have your dog come too. For those who like to sleep in their own "den," I have a big kennel available.

Always encourage a "meet and greet" beforehand to make sure everybody's comfortable -- both canines and humans -- but don't absolutely require it.

I know how to give dogs their meds (one of mine gets a weekly allergy shot), but don't have formal training.

We were extremely satisfied with all aspects of Larry Vs home and care. It was obvious Larry has lots of experience with dogs. His home and yard were spacious and comfortable. He made sure that our dogs got plenty of attention and affection. spacious and comfortable. He made sure that our dogs got plenty of attention and affection.

Vinnie & Maggie were extremely well cared for. We will be bringing them back to Larry every time we go out of town.

My dog Denver has now stayed with Larry twice. Communication was great, and they are very convenient if you are flying out of Palm Springs airport. Denver comes back happy and tired, which says a lot since he normally has so much energy. I will Denver comes back happy and tired, which says a lot since he normally has so much energy. I will gladly use them again.

Ok, first let me just say that our dog is our child and nothing/nobody is more important to us. We found ourselves in a pinch needing a dog sitter with very little notice. We did research and found DogVaca and specifically, Larry. His reviews made with very little notice. We did research and found DogVaca and specifically, Larry. His reviews made us fairly comfortable but when he invited us over for a meet and greet made us very comfortable. His home is wonderful for dogs and his dogs are very friendly. During our trip Larry was so very good at communicating. We highly recommend him....happily.
