About Daniel

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a dog-loving family. I grew up with a dog, have had my own dogs over the past 6 years, and have dog-sat many friends' dogs over the years. Now I stay home full-time with our two year old son Desmond and am looking to watch another dog during the day so our dog Stella can have a dog friend to play with and we can earn some extra money in the meantime.

Our apartment has a good size family/dining room that's open for dog play with my friendly 8- year old cattle dog, Stella (25lbs). We have a fully fenced back yard that is roughly 16' x16' and is also a good spot for play. In addition, as a stay-at-home dad I have a pretty flexible schedule. I walk our dog Stella once a day and would be happy to take your dog along on our daily walk. We also live near three parks and the 606 Bloomingdale Trail so have lots of nearby places we can take your dog to be outside.

We have one 14 year old cat, Ivan, who is very used to dogs and mostly just sleeps in the back of the house all day (so wouldn't really interact with your dog). Our son Desmond is very active and loves our dog Stella. He would be good with any dog that has some familiarity with children.

I require a meet and greet.

Daniel is obviously a dog guy, and he was very responsive, and I have a feeling my dog had a very nice stay. Great job Daniel.
Thank you for being an awesome second home practically to Brona!! You guys rock!!
Best DogVacay ever! Thank you!!
Thank you so much!!
Belle is always excited to stay with Dann and his family and comes home tired from playing! He was so helpful taking her a day earlier than we had planned to help us with a last minute change of plans.
Dan and his family were amazing to our dog Rocky. They really treated him like family. Rocky went on several walks a day, went to dog parks, Dan took several pictures and sent several pictures and it looked as though Rocky completely forgot about us because he was having a blast. Dan was extremely easy to get in touch with, he was flexible and just easy going. My husband and I couldn't have picked a more awesome family for Rocky to stay with for a few days. We will definitely ask Dan and his family to care for Rocky again.
Our two-year old cattle dog stayed with Dann for two nights and everything went very smoothly. She went to the dog park, played in the backyard, etc. Dan sent us photos and videos during the stay and was flexible with pick up and drop off times. Would recommend as a host.
Dan & Co rock again!! Last minute booking - awesome flexibility and super accommodating. Over priced & over filled daycare facilities - Goodbye!! ;P
Dann and his family were accommodating and very friendly. When I picked up Gordon he didn't want to leave. Thanks Dann.
Another amazing experience with DogVacay. Dann was professional and I felt like my dog was part of the family while I was away. I received both picture and video updates regularly from Dann which were great! My dog was exhausted when I picked her up from all the fun she had; she slept the entire next day. Would definitely use Dann again!
Our pup was in great hands with Dann and his family! Dann sent daily pictures and took our dog to the park to play fetch to get some much needed exercise. Dann was flexible and extremely responsive. We highly recommend him!
Dann did a great job, even helping our dog socialize better on walks! Very nice fellow, gentle with dogs, would definitely book again.
Dann and his family were a great host to our beagle. She has special needs and they were very attentive to her. We met Dann ahead of our trip and he socialized our dog with the rest of family very well ahead of the actual stay, they clearly knew what they were doing. Usually when we get back from a long trip we have a bit of a neurotic beagle on our hands, not so after her stay with Dann- she was happy as a clam! We won't ever leave her at the boarder again- Dann's house or bust.
Dann really came through for us this holiday season. Last minute we had to extend the reservation 4 more nights and they were so awesome and laid back about it! Between Dann, Elise and their cute son Desmond, Brona is well loved and taken care of! We wouldn't take her anywhere else. Best sitters ever!!
Dann is the bomb!!
Wow Dann was amazing!! We felt 100% at ease and comfortable leaving Brona for the week with him and his family. He sent us a picture EVERYDAY with a cute little description. They went on plenty of walks and had numerous trips to the park! The house was very clean with a nice little patio the dogs can hangout in. Brona has finally found a great sitter via DogVacay and we will definitely use Dan next time we leave town !!
Dann was so great with my energetic pup, Diesel! Him and his wife are the definition of "dog people" and the affection they showed Diesel was very appreciated. They took daily walks to the park and got plenty of fresh air and exercise...but Diesel still enjoyed some down time lounging around getting snuggles from their adorable son.

Dann sent plenty of update & pictures and Diesel came back home happy and tuckered out from all the excitement...which was exactly what I needed after my weekend of traveling.
