About Garrett

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a passionate dog lover who has owned dogs for over ten years. I am generally home all day and thus, can provide 24 hour supervision of your dog(s). I have a large fenced in yard with many lizard chasing opportunities. My neighborhood is quiet and dog friendly for walks. My four dogs would love having new playmates.

Notice: Due to liability reasons I cannot board the following breads mix or full: Pit Bulls, Chows, Rottweilers and Dobermans. Also I require that all dogs be spayed or neutered and current on their shots.

This site was a God send! My mom recently passed away and we needed someone to watch our 4 month old puppy and 15 year old dog, while we went out of town for her memorial. The doggy hotels and camps were not affordable, I stubble on this site and searched for the best host for our furniture babies. Garrett was awesome. He was patient with me during the process of booking the date and my questions. When they dogs were dropped off,Garrett was polite and discussed everything with my husband. I went to pick them up, they were happy to see us, and we're well taken care of. Garret sent us photos of our babies so we could see how they were doing. Thank you Garrett!!!!!!
Garrett took excellent care of our dog and it was much easier knowing that he would have a yard to play in and lots of attention unlike a normal kennel. The updates and pics were much appreciated.
We have a 2 year old German Shepherd named Mya. When we pull into Garrett's driveway Mya gets SOO excited. She absolutely loves staying at Garrett's. We have booked with Garrett 3 times now. Every time he has been very accommodating to our needs. This past visit I was supposed to pick Mya up on Monday morning. However, when I got out of work on Sunday night around 11pm I asked Garrett if he would mind if I picked her up that night, and of course he let me. He is very flexible about pick up and drop off times. He will also send pictures of your pup! Side note: when we first used Garrett we lived about 10 minutes away from him and it was super convenient. We recently moved to downtown Tampa, so Garrett is about 35 minutes away now. I will still be using him. I trust very few people with my pet as she is my "fur baby" and I'm sure a lot of people on here feel the same way. I am telling you Garrett is the best on here. I am happy to drive the 35 minutes knowing my pup is well taken care of! Thank you Garrett for watching Mya and doing such a great job!
Garrett is wonderful! He had taken care of Cody once before but not our bassett. This time he got to have both of them and they had a great time with Garrett. Will definitely have Garrett take care of my dogs again.
Thank you so much for taking care of our Duncan. He enjoys his stay with you, and his new best friend Maisie. We will be using you again and would highly recommend you to anyone looking for someone to care for there dog.

Thank you, Cindy & Steve Rigby
Garrett was responsive to any inquiries I made through Dogvacay. My dog appeared happy after his one day stay.
I went to visit Aunt Joan and my pups went to visit Uncle Garrett. They love Uncle Garrett cause they always have fun there.
Very nice location to board dogs. Garrett is very good with them.
My dogs love to visit Garrett. He is their kind of guy.
Tebow seemed to have a great time. He came home exhausted. I will use Garrett again when I need a babysitter for my baby!
Chico was very happy with Garrett. When she came home usually she is jumping all over me with excitement to see me. She wasn't this time, she was very calm. Garrett worked with me also on time to pick up as I wasn't sure on the time. Very nice gentleman.
Garrett is friendly, courteous and was very easy to work with. This is the first time I had to board my dog and he made the process stress free. I feel very comfortable leaving my dog with him again. Thanks Garrett
I want to thank Garrett for taking care of Stella. We are always confident and trustful in him with our pet. Awesome job. Thanks.
Chelsea had a great stay. Easily accommodated extra night needed. Very satisfied
Bentley had a great time at Canine Cottage he made some new friends and had tons of fun playing with them. Garrett and his family are super friendly. I didn't leave worried. I would have no problem leaving Bentley with them again. Thanks so much :)
A great stay as always. Thanks again Garrett.
Garrett is a wonderful care taker for our chocolate lab "Liberty." He is very professional and trustworthy. The home is very nice, clean and plenty of spacious room for active dogs like ours to run around.
We were very pleased with Garrett's care of our dog. We plan to use him next year if he is available. Duncan had a good time swimming & playing with the other dogs. I would highly recommend Garrett for a dog sitter. Thank you Garrett!!
Like always, our dog, Gideon, was well looked after and exhausted from playing in the backyard and the pool. Garrett and his family do a great job entertaining and exercising Gideon while we are away. We will be bringing Gideon back soon.
Our dog had a great time with Garrett. Thank you!
Garrett, Thank you so much for watching Cinnamon during our vacation. We appreciated seeing the pictures of her while we were away. Cinnamon is looking forward to staying with you again in the future!
Ollie dog had a great time with Garrett as usual. Whenever possible we use Canine Cottage when we need to have Ollie boarded.
Garrett was willing to meet several times with us and our dog at his home which allowed our dog to feel more comfortable when we dropped him off. Garrett sent pictures and kept us posted on how he was doing throughout his stay. He even let our dog swim in their pool (golden retreiver) which I'm sure he thoroughly enjoyed. I was worried that our dog wouldn't want to come back with us when we went to pick him up. Thanks Garrett, we will be back!
I think they had a great time. Garrett's dog cried when we left so I know that they had a fun time playing together. We will be back again in the fall.
What a wonderful experience. Garrett is a very caring person with a tender heart for animals. Pink was well cared for and spoiled. We felt very comfortable leaving our pet in Garrett's care.
This was the first time boarding our dog who is very high energy. He was happy when we picked him up and the house has a great yard to run in.
it was a pleasure to meet garrett and his family their home is beautiful and looks like a resort for your pet to go to
Garrett is great and our dog was very relaxed when we picked him up. Thank you!
Want to thanks Garrett for taking care of Daisy and always appreciate his positive attitude and dedication. Thank you Garrett
Garrett took great care of our old pup, Dakota. He got all the attention he craves and came home calm and content. This was our first try with DogVacay and I couldn't be happier! If Garrett will have us, Dakota will definitely be back again!

Ollie had a great time with Garrett. I am sure the large yard provided Ollie with plenty of lizard hunting opportunities. Next time we need a dog sitter, Garrett will be at the top of our list.
As always Garrett took great care of Daisy, and I want to thank him for is great job.
Molly had a wonderful time with Garrett. She was very well cared for on both her visit's, she was so excited when we arrived at Garrett's on her second stay. We are very happy we found Garrett and would like to thank Garrett & Family for taking such good care of our Molly. See you again soon!
My dogs were very comfortable with Garrett right away; Garrett is very kind and patient. They also had a good time in his spacious yard! I'll definitely ask him to watch them again.
Bailey was well cared for both times we used Garrett. He swam in the pool and had a grand time. I received photos and a video of Bailey playing
Buddy said he had a wonderful time at Garrett's, especially his playtimes with two of Garrett's dogs.

He apologizes for chewing up some things and hopes that won't deter Garrett from letting him come back again next month.

Thanks again to Garrett and family.

Brody had a wonderful time with Garrett & family. Super dog host with a nice big back yard with plenty of fun dog time.
We love having Garrett take care of our dog. He is very dependable.
Very professional, prepared and courteous. I forgot Max bowls but he had some available so I didnt had to drive back or spend on new ones. Daily updates on Max and Pics. Thanks
I dropped Bailey off and he seemed very comfortable staying with Garrett. Nice yard and pool for Bailey to play in. I received a picture and a video of Bailey during his time. He came home very happy and pretty tired from all the play.
First time using Garrett and will use him again. Max had a big patio to run and other doggies to play with. Garrett send a cute pic of Max and that made my wife feel a lot better during our trip. Thanks
I want to thanks Garrett for taking care of Daisy, as always we trust him for this job. Thank you one more time. JoseAndaluz
Garrett has a wonderful yard, especially nice for dogs to run and play, chase squirls and gecio's. Simba did real well and I would use Garrett again.
We were very pleased with Garrett taking care our dog Daisy. At all time we trusted on his skills and knowledge. Thank you Garrett. The Andaluz
Garrett is GREAT!!!! This was the first time we ever had to leave our pup’s and we were soooo very pleasantly surprised with how easy it was and how well it went with Garrett. He took such great care of them and he had such a great back yard for them to run and play!!!
He is the only one that we would want to leave our pups with now. They loved him!!!
Garrett sent updates and pictures of our puppies each day while we were gone since we were missing them so much.
We are so thankful that we found Garrett! We are already planning their next visit with him.
