About Darrell

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a Professional Dog Trainer certified through Jo-Thors Dog Training Academy. I will not just babysit your dog, we will help them become good K-9 citizens. My wife and I will give your dog(s) one on one attention and teach them basic obedience while in our care. We will love and treat them as if they were our own. Your fur babies will be walked numerous times during the day and taught how to sit and walk nicely on a leash. You don't have to worry about your loved ones being caged up and left alone while in our care. They will get plenty of exercise and socialization. My wife and I are both retired Air Force veterans and now dedicating our time taking care of pups. This is our full time job so your furry friend(s) will be attended to around the clock. We have a passion for taking care of dogs, let us share that passion with you and your pup on his or her next doggyvacay.

Ryland always enjoys his stay with Darrell and Kim. I feel very comfortable in knowing he is in good care !!
This was my first experience like that-with DogVacay as a company and boarding itself, I think Darrell and his wife went beyond my expectations, fabulous people with a great approach towards dogs, it looks like Max had fun and great opportunity to socialize with other dogs for the very first time, since he is only 6 months old. They were keeping us posted even when we had limited access to the internet, for that -huge thank you; I need to apologize though for my dogs behavior, he can be menace sometimes...I would recommend them to anyone with my closed eyes

This was wonderful! We had never boarded before, but Darrell and Kimberly went out of their way to answer all of my MANY questions quickly and put me at ease.

They sent pictures and videos daily, and my dog seemed to have a great time. We will definitely use them again. Highly recommend them!
