About Douglas

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our two friendly, enthusiastic labs, Mack and Baxter, enjoy playing with other dogs and would love to share their large lawn and woodland area. Their Dad, Doug, works from home and takes them out regularly throughout the day. Doug and Linda (Mom) are kind dog parents who give M & B lots of special attention throughout the morning, afternoon, and evening. Our home is spacious and dog friendly. We are up at 6:00 for morning duties, and M & B are fed three times a day. Linda worked in a kennel for several years where she gained much experience in dog behavior, baths, and administering vet-prescribed medication. Doug grew up with dogs and has a lifetime of experience caring for his beloved pets.

From the moment I pulled onto Doug’s driveway for the meet and greet I knew I would be happy leaving Montauk at Doug’s house while I was away. Doug’s house is adjacent to the Great Swamp and he has trails on his property to walk the dogs. Montauk also had a good time with Doug’s two dogs Mac and Baxter.

Doug was also most accommodating when we called him Sunday afternoon to let him know our flight was delayed by weather. He allowed us to still pick up Montauk later Sunday night after our flight finally arrived.

I would highly recommend Doug to anyone who asks me or is reading this review. I will definitely re-book next time Montauk needs a Dog Vacay.

This was Mojo's third stay with Doug. Each time Mojo had a blast. There is always someone for MJ to play with and Doug has a great yard. Highly recommended will be back again
Our 18 month old Golden Retriever had a wonderful stay. Douglas, the host, was kind and caring. The property seems perfect for boarding dogs. We fully believe our Scout had a fine stay for a three + day weekend. We look forward to using their boarding services in the future.

My dog loved her stay with Doug and Linda. I'm sure she was a little disappointed to go home after a week of daily walks in the woods and endless playdates with Max and Baxter! I enjoyed getting pictures of her while I was away and it put my mind at ease. I highly recommend Camp Pitney!

Doug and wife are great. Took great care of Weasley at the last minute and followed all instructions to the T. Sent us a photo while we are away to let us know everything was fine. Will certainly use Doug again when needed.
We were very pleased with Blaze's first visit to Camp Pitney. Even though he was very nervous during his stay, he came home tired and and happy. Doug and Linda were genuinely concerned about him which was very much appreciated. We know that after a few more visits he will relax and enjoy their adorable dogs. He will be back!

Doug and Linda were the awesome and loving host for our puppy max. He had very good time, he is missing Mack and Baxter already. The pictures and timely updates were great.
Great experience. Will definitely book again! My dog was very well taken care of and my mind was at ease knowing he was happy and getting lots of love.
Our Golden Retriever, Mulder, had a great time at Camp Pitney! It was his first time away from home so we were a big nervous about him being lonely, but that was definitely not the case - he fit right in and had a great time. Thank you Douglas and family! We will definitely be back!

Great experience with Doug's daycare. My dog was successfully worn out! Will definitely return.
Doug was able to take my dog with a short notice and I loved meeting him in person. My dog was in safe hands. He took care of my dog well. I will definitely request Doug again for dog sitting.
Our 74 lb. Coonhound, Baxter, has stayed at Camp Pitney twice (once for daycare and once on an overnight). Doug and Linda are such nice people. We love that Baxter gets to play with the other dogs in the home and take long walks on the wooded property. He typically refuses to eat when he's in a new setting but ate both of his meals during his last visit, which speaks to his level of comfort. Baxter will be returning for an extended stay soon. It's always hard leaving him when we travel, but we know he is in good hands!

My dog had a great stay with Doug and his two retrievers. It is great to be able to drop her off with a fellow dog lover for an overnight.
However, please note that while his property is expansive and wooded, there is no fence, so there is not an opportunity for off-leash play.

Great coverage for our dogs! You know when they jump out of the car barking that they're happy to be back!! Highly recommend!!
I've have had my dog over 6 years and this was only the second time she has ever been "boarded." It makes me anxious leaving her in a strange place, but my experience with Camp Pitney was everything I was looking for and put my mind at ease. Doug and Linda have a great setup and it is clear they are caring and knowledgeable with dogs. My dog is pretty active so Mack and Baxter were great compliments for her. I will definitely be using Doug and Linda again in the future.

This was our first experience with Doug & Linda but will certainly not be our last. We were very happy to find out about the Dogvacay option and really appreciate the convenience. Our two boys were completely at ease with their hosts and visa versa. We felt absolutely at peace leaving them for our three night getaway and recommend Doug, Linda and Dogvacay to any dog owner.

Hugo had a fantastic time at camp Pitney. He had plenty of excercise running around with his new buddies and was exhausted when he came home. We will be using camp Pitney often and highly recommend them for anyone needing a pet sitting service for their pets.

Josie had a positive experience and played well with Mac and Baxter. She came home very tired which is a good thing since she loved the activity. She came home brushed which was a bonus. There is plenty of land for running around and fetching the ball. Having Doug work from home is the biggest plus!! Would highly recommend. Rating is 5.( not sure it registered)

Ernie had a great time at Camp Pitney! The Pitney's have a clean house, an awesome property and two super loving dogs. Doug works from home so he was around most of the time. Ernie got lots of walks and attention. Ernie has been known to skip eating when he is excited or in new situations. Doug took the time to sit with Ernie and encourage him to eat. We will definitely book with the Pitneys again.
