About Ben

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a life-long dog lover, especially for other peoples' dogs. I never had a dog growing up, but I grew to adore all the dogs owned by friends and extended family. They have consequently seen my dog-friendly demeanor and coined me as a "dog-whisperer." I am also a very responsible dog caretaker as I make sure I understand all of their needs, health-wise or emotional.
My home: located directly on beautiful White Horse Beach in Plymouth, this is a truly on-inclusive vacation spot for canines of all breeds. Small dogs can lounge on the rap-around deck, which offers a protected outdoor space with stunning panoramic views of Cape Cod Bay. For the more adventurous, the dog-friendly beach across the street provides ample ball fetching or bird chasing opportunities. The quiet neighborhood is good for walking of all dog sizes and types.
A typical day for your dog under my care may look like:
- Lots of attention with plentiful ear-scratches and belly rubs (according to level of interest from the dog, of course)
- 1 or 2 accompanied outdoor times such as a walk on the beach or hanging out in the backyard.
- Food on schedule.
- Issuing 2 or 3 well-deserved treats or bones.
At some point, I hope to get my own dog, but I am just as happy to help a neighbor with their lifelong friend.
Thank you for your interest!

Ben was amazing. He was great with my dog and good at keeping me informed with how he was doing. He even sent me a picture. Ben was flexible and understanding with my schedule. He was extremely attentive to my dog and I felt comfortable leaving him at his house. I will definitely be using Ben's services again and recommending him to others.

This was my first time leaving Mella a Yorky with a sitter. I was thrilled to hear about dogvacay !! Ben was friendly and eager to please . We were able to text back and forth to set up our plans. I was so comfortable about leaving Mella with Ben. He sent me pictures and videos of her which I totally appreciated. I would highly recommend Ben if you want a worry free vacation!!

Ben ROCKS!!!

My little buddy was very well taken care of by Ben. I highly recommend you give this sitter a chance if you live anywhere near Plymouth. I have a 10 year-old Aussie who is my best friend and would not trust him with just anyone. Ben took great care of my boy and he will do the same for your 4-legged family member. Thank you Ben!

My experience with Ben was more than I hoped for. My Scout is family and after meeting and speaking with Ben I felt it would be an excellent match. Her first day was a success and Ben updated me throughout the day with pictures which made me feel very secure, Scout was in a safe and loving place. I had arrived with a list of things Ben should know and her doggy day care bag. Scout came home happy & exhausted and we can't wait to return. I'm still not sure how to reserve my next reservation, still working on it, but had let Ben know the dates

Ben was fantastic with our ten week old Border Collie and super accommodating with our travel needs. He sent lots of updates, pictures, and even a video. It really let us know that we entrusted the person with our baby!
