About Dale

Beautiful 2 story home with 2 adults and our handsome boy, Kaipo. He is a Australian Shepard/Corgi mix that is FULL of energy and loves to play. He is a medium size dog (42 lbs) and does BEST with others his size or smaller. He has been around larger dogs but they are dogs that come over with our friends and he sees on a regular basis. His favorite game is fetch and he absolutely loves to go to the dog parks. We have a SUV with a pet barrier for trips to the dog park, pick-up, and/or drop-off.

When weather is less than ideal we will walk around the neighborhood and take a trip up to Pittock Mansion. Not to worry about the water because we would be dried off on the covered back deck of the house.

Our schedules allow us the convenience of giving your dog love and companionship all day long. Your pup would only be left alone if absolutely necessary (grocery store run, dinner with friends, or going to gym to work out). If they were to be alone it would not be any longer than 4-5 hours.

If your pup likes his alone time, we have several baby gates throughout the house that can separate guests, should the need arise.

Let us take care of your special family member while you are away. We love to travel and understand the stress of leaving your dog at a kennel. You "hope" they get the attention they deserve, how long are they actually left alone, does the kennel ACTUALLY provide them snacks and play time??

If you choose us, you will NOT have to worry or wonder. Play time at a doggie daycare/kennel do not include fetch, tug-o-war, trips to the dog park or walks in the neighborhood! A stay with us includes all that and MORE!!

We will welcome your little guy or gal into our pack and make them feel right at home!!

Dale is an absolutely top-rate host. I've left Yumi with him multiple times now, for up to a week at a time, and she loves staying there with her buddy Kaipo. Highest recommendation.
I can tell Liam had an amazing time with Dale, Gerrit & Kaipo! He came back worn out from hours of play which is always nice to see. The photos sent were also extremely awesome and really set me at ease with leaving my little guy for a long weekend away. It was a great experience for him being only 4 months old to spend some time socializing with another pup and I'm sure they'll get together again soon to play some more!

We had a great experience with Dale! He took our puppy Wallace for 4 nights while we were out of town and we couldn't be happier with how it went. Since this was our first time away from the pup since we got him we were a little nervous, but Dale made us feel so comfortable. They even taught him how to roll over! I would definitely recommend Dale to anyone and hope to use him again.

Completely(!) pleased with how Yumi was cared-for. I'll certainly be letting Dale care for her again.
Dale is a great dog sitter! I know that when I drop Chloe off, she is in good hands and well taken care of.
Henry just came back from his third stay with Dale. When we dropped him off he was very happy and excited; he went right up to the door and scratched and cried to be let in. When we picked up Henry, he was nice and tired (just as it should be).
Dale is our number one pick when Henry needs a vacay.

This worked perfect for us. Dale was great. Riley came home happy and tired so I know he had a good time. Thanks!
We had a great experience with Dale. He was responsive and friendly and sent cute pictures of our dog Charlie. Charlie went on a walk and to the dog park and came back much happier then when boarded at a kennel. We would use Dale's services again in a heartbeat!

EXCELLENT care bar none...loving caring highly experienced dog person...highly highly recommend
Our dog Henry is so precious to us; we worried about where we could leave him when we went on vacation. We found Dale on Dog Vacay and it has all been the best experience. We had a meet up for Henry to get the lay of the land and to meet Kaipo and Dale. He was so comfortable in their home and immediately took to both the humans and their pet.
We left Henry on a Friday, and before we even got on the plane, Dale had sent us a photo and a note to say that all was well. We got photo up-dates all weekend long....that really helped us with our anxiety.
When we picked Henry up on Monday, he was happy to see us, but he was so tired, he just laid in the back of the car. Dale had printed out a summary of Henry's stay with a lot of great pictures. It was nice to hear and see how his own "vacation" had been and how he had spent his time.
We have another vacation planned for June, and Henry will be staying with Dale again. His love and compassion for dogs is so obvious!
