About Al

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
First of all we're dog lovers. We've owned 3 labs over the years and miss having pets. We’re both retired and normally take only one dog at the time, which allows us to give your dog our undivided attention. We have three restrictions/reservations: (1) dogs need to be 100% completely house broken, (2) we don't take big shedders, and (3) we don't like to take males (cause they always "mark" their spot in a new environment). We live in a nice neighborhood with easy access to our yard and a nice open field right down the street for more adventure. We do "dog care" because we miss having dogs around and will enjoy having yours.

Al and his wife were wonderful hosts, and took care of Rocky like he was their own. We received several photo updates during his stay, which was very reassuring. We would not hesitate to book with Al again in the future. Thanks so much!!
Friendly, work from home care giver. Provided great walks and late night pick up. A+
Terrific! Very caring, gentle, and kind. Lovely home, yard, and private neighborhood. A+++ Highly recommend. Thank you, Al!
Simply put, Al is a great host. He has a lovely and cozy home for your dog and also a great backyard. You can see that he and his wife are dog lovers. They take meticulous care of your pet. They are very flexible regarding you and your pet's needs. I would use Al again in a heartbeat.
Trust me, if Al watches your pet your dog will thank you.

Big Al thank you for taking extra wonderful care of our cockapoo, Hazel. You and your wife went the extra mile to keep our dog comfortable and safe, and it seemed as if you loved her as much as we do! Upon picking her up after her 5-day stay, I could tell immediately how happy and at home she felt with you. You were patient enough to tolerate her 1st day of separation anxiety (including a lovely "accident" inside of your house.) Yet you handled it with such pragmatism and ease, and continued to give her a fair shot at adjusting. And as we all witnessed, she ended up thriving! Thank you for the consistent updates, texts and photos, and being so detailed and honest. You are the best and I cannot thank you enough! Hazel is looking forward to her next stay.
