About Brian

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello. Looking forward to hosting one of, if not, your best friend! I grew up with dogs and currently have a very friendly Cavapoo, Cooper. I live in a 1,200 square foot condo with ample space to roam, and have a huge enclosed terrace to run around in. Walks are a given, and adhering to your requested schedules for feeding, etc. are no brainers! Looking forward to meeting you and your better half. :-)

Brian was great! I needed someone to watch my Coton de Tulear for several hours while I did my Christmas shopping, and Brian was very accommodating to the fact that I might unavoidably end up running a little late. Coco seemed calm and happy when I picked her up. I would definitely use his services again.
Brian was flexible with drop-off/pick-up times and sent a video and picture during the week to let us know that out dog was doing great. Would definitely use Brian again!
Brian was fantastic! Sparks (our dog) isn't the easiest guy but Brian was super patient and attentive with him.
My pups seem do so excellent with Brian! I appreciate the quick responses and conscientious care. We will vacay with Brian again!
Brian was a great host - especially to our super anxious, Molly. He quickly set her at ease and kept us apprised appropriately. Will definitely book with Brian again in the future!
Brian was great -- he was flexible on dropoff/pickup times, responsive, and was able to take my dog for daycare at the last minute. My dog seemed to have a good time at his place as well!
Brian and Cooper were the perfect host. Brian sent us daily updates of Duke - putting our minds at ease while on vacation. I would definitely leave Duke in his care again!
Thanks for being so accommodating Brian! My dog slept for 12 hours straight when he got home so it looks like he had a great time!
Oreo had a great time staying with Brian and Cooper. The outside patio is great because they don't get all dirtied up at the dog park. Oreo was quite tired from all the play time this past weekend and will be back!
Brian was great! I highly recommend him. He was responsive and I felt totally comfortable leaving my dog with him while we went on vacation.
Brian was great and accommodating. We accidentally booked for the wrong day, but he was willing to watch him on the day we actually needed him. He was very easy to get in contact with, and our shy boy Obi had a great time. I highly recommend Brian to anyone. Thank you so much, Brian!!
Dexter loves staying at Brian's! He gets so excited to go there and always comes back happy. Brian is always flexible with drop off and pick up times as well. We will definitely be going back!
Sent a long favorable review yesterday, but I'm happy to repeat it. I would certainly have Brian care for my dogs again and highly recommend him. He was easy to reach, proactive about keeping in touch, and flexible with boarding dates when we had to change due to unforeseen circumstances. He came as a pet sitter to my home. The dogs were in great shape, calm and contented when we returned, and the house was in good shape. What a great experience for our pets and us.
Great experience! Brian was always available for communication and even sent me a picture during the day. I'll definitely be back!
Brian was so phenomenal with our 6 month old pup, Blanche! This was her first time away for a long weekend and she clearly had a great time. She was very well taken care of and we are so happy to have a great puppy sitting option nearby!
Nola had a great time playing with Cooper and Brian was flexible regarding pick up and drop off times.
Brian was great to work with, easy to coordinate drop off and pick up, flexible, low-key and nice. Snickers loved his stay and came back very happy. I appreciated the photos and text, and positive feedback about my pup, which put me at ease while I was away. Snickers needs daily medication and Brian handled that well. Snickers will be back!
Brian was great! He was very responsive and provided text updates and videos while we were away. At first, we were somewhat apprehensive about whether our dog would get along with the host's dog, but Cooper was super friendly and they got along perfectly. Our dog, Kobe, was relaxed and happy when we picked him up. We would definitely recommend Brian. Thanks again Brian!
Brian was great! He was extremely flexible with pick up and drop off times due to my busy schedule and lilah had a great time with him and took to him right away. I recommend Brian highly!
This was our first time using DogVacay and it was great. Brian was very flexible with pick up and drop off times. He took care to make sure they were walked when he wasn't home. They also had a fun time with his dog, Cooper. We would definitely ask him to watch the dogs again.
Can't say enough about what a great dog care giver Brian is and how super sweet Cooper is. Tank will be back. Thank you for your trusted care with my pup!
What a fun vacay for Tank to get to hang out with Cooper :) he had a blast. Always appreciate you watching Tank - I can trust that he is being well taking care of while I'm away.
Brian is always so great with Tank!!! Thank you Brian.
Brian was very easy to work with. He was flexible with drop-off and pick-up times and kept me up to date throughout the day. He was very laid back and put any worries at ease! Beaune came home tired and content, which is always a good sign. I think he must have had a great day with Brian and Cooper!
Brian was amazing! Not only was he super accommodating and helpful, but my dog Pete came back happy and pooped after lots of playtime with Cooper...a dream come true after my day of traveling. :) I look forward to working with Brian again!
Brian took great care of my dog and responded quickly to my messages. And his dog Cooper is a sweetheart.
Our dog Blue had a great time with Brian and Cooper. Brian was easy to work with setting up a meet and greet and for the drop off/pick up. We'll definitely be using Brian again.
Brian was a great sitter! He made time available for a meet and greet, was very accommodating with the fact that my friend had to drop of my dog and that I had to pick him up late in the evening because of a late flight. He sent me a update photo and I liked the fact that he works from home and also has adog himself, so my dog wouldn't be lonely. I would recommend Brian!
Dexter did great with Brian! It was nice knowing he was around other dogs while I was away also.
Brian and Cooper are great! Our Chloe had such a great time! I would definitely recommend Brian to other people!
Roper had a great time with Brian and Cooper! Brian sent us great pictures of Roper during our vacation and our pup came back happy and healthy! I would definitely use Brian again.
My dog had a wonderful in daycare with Brian and Cooper. They are great! Brian was very flexible and accommodating with my booking needs, and sent me regular updates. Cooper, his dog, is delightful and just the right amount of welcoming. I have already booked in my dog for another day of daycare. Thanks Brian and Cooper!
We were very happy with Brian's care of Pippen and would look Brian up again when we need his services. We felt bad that Pippen had an accident just after we dropped him off, but Brian rolled with it given Pippen's nervousness of being "left behind". We were also happy that Pippen had a playmate while staying with Brian. Had Cooper not been there to help Pippen cope, Brian would have had a "velcro" puppy stuck to him overnight. Thanks much Brian!
Miley had a great time while staying with Brian. Brian was nice enough to send us pictures of her while we were out of town. Felt bad dropping off a lot of toys, directions etc but Brian did not mind at all. Thanks again Brian.
Brian did a great job with my 8 week old puppy. He was understanding and accommodating. I would absolutely have him look after my dog again!
Brian is a great host for Toby. He lets Toby chill out and relax. I appreciate Brian's flexibility, which helped! Toby needed a vacay before and after my operation, and Brian accommodated us both. Brian communicates well and his dog Cooper is way cool.
We used Brian for the first time this past weekend and we were really happy with him! He sent us photos while we were away and kept us updated as to how our little guy was doing. He was easy to reach and communicate through text. Was super flexible about pickup and drop-off time. We will definitely be using him again!
I recently just moved to the Arlington area for work and was in desperate need for someone to look after my pup Lola as I was starting my new job. Brian really saved the day. He was lightning fast in responding to my last minute request for care. Lola seemed so happy when I picked her up after her stay with him and Cooper. She was tired when we got home which was great! I will definitely be coming back to Brian and Cooper again! Thank you so much for your help :)
Brian and Cooper were great! 5 stars --> Tank enjoyed his vacay and can't wait to go back again! I would recommend Brian/Cooper to anyone looking for a good doggie vacay experience. Thank you both.
