About David

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have been looking after dogs for over 15 years, providing the highest standard of safety and happiness for your best friend.

Our house in Rural Hall, NC has a huge back yard for energetic dogs and a no-stairs access for elderly or recuperating dogs. Gated wooden deck. Gated front porch. Large living room dedicated to dog comfort; large and small sofa, large and small ottoman, blankets, pillows, multiple water bowls and toys.

We will only host a total of four (4) at a time. We will gladly host GIANT dogs for a small additional fee. Limited numbers ensure your dog will get special personal attention and reduces the chance of your pet being overwhelmed by new surroundings, new smells and new friends to play with.

David is able to quickly and safely establish himself as the alpha dog / pack leader and dogs are given a supervised one-on-one introduction with all other dogs to maintain a well socialized, playful pack. New dogs are isolated and fed separately at their specified time (and given medication if provided), this eliminates potential fights or food stealing.

Fresh water is ALWAYS available inside and out. There are clean, comfortable crates inside should your dog need cool down or want alone time. Overnight guests sleep inside, never outside.

Our friendly, neutered, border collie, Buddy, will be at home for companionship and play with your dog.

We reserve the right to refuse to host any dog for any reason. If your dog becomes aggressive or uncontrollable it will be isolated and you will be called to pick up the dog immediately.

We want to have a fun, friendly, healthy and safe time with your best friend, allowing you to concentrate on your time.
---
We have never had a dog emergency, but that is no reason not to be prepared. We have wound cleaning, dressing and insect bite first aid on-hand and the Banfield Pet Hospital is only 3 miles away.

Dash had a great time! He is normally anxious about being away from home, but with David he came home his happy, lovable self. David also did a great job sending us photos and updates which made me less anxious too :) We will be back!
We recently gave our 2 golden retrievers the opportunity to spend almost 3 weeks under David & Kelly's loving care. Both of these dogs were "rescued dogs" with some fears & stranger anxieties & who had never been "left behind" by us before. After our 1st visit with David & Kelly, we met with them several times prior to our trip in order to give them, us & our babies a comfort level for their being left with new people for such an extended period. Our dogs even went to the dog park Dave & Kelly use for play - their first dog park experience! Dave & Kelly did more than rise to the occasion. Their sensitivity & understanding of our need to "pave the way" for our dogs to have a successful, not stressful, stay with them was heartwarming. Their relaxed and caring demeanor was evident from the very beginning and set us all at ease. The communication on a daily basis was unbelievable - we received updates and pix, all of which evidenced our dogs happiness & comfort with their "new family" and best friend Buddy. This gave us such peace of mind and allowed us to enjoy our family reunion in CA and Hawaii - much too far to get back to assist w any difficulties. A bond of TOTAL TRUST was formed by their caring actions and attitudes - not just for our dogs but for us as well. They were safe and happy and we were relieved and happy. How much better could it be! Without any hesitation, we are thankful to consider David & Kelly to be part of our extended family. Thank you both!

I'm so grateful to David and Kelly for taking such good care of Roco - I would not hesitate to have him visit there again! The photos and videos were a wonderful bonus - I could see he was happy and content...!
Chez has so much fun at David's! She might have better vacations than we do. We love getting photos and video of our best friend romping with Buddy while we're away.
David was so understanding and accommodating about my last-minute need to book for an extra day. Once again, the whole experience was PAWsome, and I will definitely book with him again!
David was fabulous!!! He went way above and beyond the call of duty, and that's putting it mildly. He even bathed Coco and gave her a mani-pedi -- for much less than the groomer would have charged. My little stinky-poopy pooch is now fresh and clean, with clipped nails and a silky, shiny coat. I love i!

Throughout the VaCay, David was extremely careful and conscientious...as well as super-caring and affectionate with Coco. She was as happy as a clam during her entire stay. I think she almost didn't want to leave, LOL!

I cannot recommend David highly enough. I will definitely be booking with him again!

I tried to click on 5 stars above, but I'm not sure it went through. If it doesn't show up, I'll try again. :)

From the meet and greet to the actual stay, David was top notch. You can tell David really knows dogs and does a fantastic job of making sure everything is going to go smoothly.

David did a fantastic job of keeping us updated for the entire week with messages and pictures. We were comfortable and confident that we left our dog in good care.

I will definitely be using David again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks David!

Short visits or long, Chez loves her vacation home!!
Chez loves going to David's for the day! She gets on well with Buddy and with the other guest pups, and even if it's just for the day, we get updates on how she's doing.
Also, we're chronically late people, and David and Kelly are always accommodating and gracious, and happy to see Chez whenever she finally arrives.

A pleasure as always. Isla loves coming here and gets top notch care every time. I feel confident every time that I am leaving my dog in the best possible care.
It was a terrible mistake I will never do this again. Think twice before you leave your dog here.
Chez is always happy to stay with David and Kelly. Our dog has stayed at their house a number of times now, and it's like she's staying with family - happy to go, but still happy to come home when we return!

Carter loved it!
Great experience! David clearly knows how to handle dogs
Ella enjoys spending time at David and Buddy's place! We loved receiving pics and updates as well. David is very conscientious and a strong pack leader. Ella gets a lot of attention and is happy and tired when she comes home. Thanks for taking good care of our girl!

David and Kelley were incredible hosts to our puppy. They were accommodating and flexible to our changing schedules, sent us frequent updates while we were away, and responded to all inquiries quickly. Our family is grateful to have found them and will certainly use them again as the need arises. Thank you David and Kelley for being awesome! Anna looks forward to playing with you and Buddy again soon.

We felt very comfortable leaving Wilson with David over the holidays. David has a great relationship with his dog and Wilson quickly seemed at ease in his home and got along very well with the other dogs there. I would recommend David and will be using him in the future! Thank you!

David is a wonderful host and we didn't hesitate to bring our dog for a return visit. He's very responsible and we knew that he was giving Ella the best care. An affectionate border collie who is the most gentle soul that was Ella's pup buddy. Ella played, received lots of pets, and generally had a great time. We're scheduled to use David again in the near future.

Chez had a great time! We are so grateful and glad to have had David's place as our dog's home away from home! As hard as it is to ever leave Chez, we know she'll be happy and will definitely be going back to her new friends' house for a visit.
Thank you, David, for taking such good care of Ella! We know she was in good hands. David sent us pics and updates via text which was pawesome! David's dog Buddy is such a sweetie and we're glad Ella had a pal to hang with. Ella is definitely looking forward to seeing you all again!

A wonderful experience for my two dogs! David took such good care of them and they became fast friends with his friendly dog Buddy. I don' t think they really wanted to leave when we picked them up, they were having so much fun! The indoor space has been wonderfully set up for doggy fun and there are multiple outdoor options for all types of dogs. It is clear that David is passionate about caring for dogs and I couldn't have left them in better hands. Will definitely be using him again for our future needs!
