About Dana

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Dana Whitcomb and I have a love of playing with and caring for dogs. I have a single family home with approximately 1/3 acre lot. The back yard is large and fenced in for play time and I also have a smaller fenced in area for potty breaks and to be separated from people when the back yard is being used.

I have grown up with dogs all my life and in my family. I currently have 2 dogs; Packer who is 3 yrs old and is a Border Collie/Lab mix. I is very energetic, friendly and loves to play. Witten is 4 yrs old and is a Puggle. She is mainly an inside dog and loves to just lay around. Both my dogs are fixed and up to date on shots.

I help watch the dogs of my neighbors when they are away on trips, work, and even for play dates. I welcome any breed of dog as long as they are not aggressive as I have children at home. At meet and greet will be required before accepting any booking. Pets must be house-broken and/or crate trained as my dogs sleep in their crates at night.

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you!

We are so thankful we found Dana. He is not only responsive, but also very flexible (which it was crucial specially around the holidays). We'll definitely use him again.
Dana was great with my dog Troy since the meet-n-greet, and Troy seemed pretty happy at his house when we picked him up. I am sure Troy had a blast with Dana's whole family, spacious house, large backyard, and playful dogs (Packer and Witten).
Wonderful dog sitter! I have a 9 month old lab (mae) that's a bit of a handful right now and Dana watched her for 8 days over Christmas saving my holiday plans. My dog Mae was timid at first but all the dogs in Dana's house where friendly and she opened up. Wonderful family, nice big yard, and a lot of patience. Thank you again, I hope you'll want to watch Mae again soon
Always incredibly accommodating. The entire family is always welcoming and excited to see the new temporary resident. Dana is my primary sitter. Thanks Dana!
Our dog Pepper was very comfortable with Dana and his family. She had a great stay over the weekend. I could tell that Dana has been around dogs a lot, and that he is used to their different personalities. He responded promptly to our emails and messages, and sent us pictures throughout her stay. I highly recommend him, and would gladly use his services again.
Our dogs had a great weekend stay with Dana! We received pictures showing they were having a lot of fun. They came exhausted and slept for like 2 days. Thanks again! We'll be reaching out for any future needs!
Absolutely loved the experience and more importantly Cappi did too...thanks...will definitely contact you again in the future...
My dogs were well taken care of and Dana provided awesome pics to ensure me that they were in good hands!
Dana did a great job with our German Shepard, Jeb. I was very pleased with how responsive he was to questions, and how he frequently shared pictures and videos. Knowing Jeb was in good hands was a huge relief to my family during our vacation - one less thing to worry about. I would absolutely recommend Dana to others!
Dana and his family have done an excellent job watching our dog Champ. We have used him a couple times now and Champ feels right at home over their and loves playing with Packer. Dana is very understanding of any needs our dog may need and has no problem providing updates or contacting me if he has any questions. I highly recommend Dana for any dog watching services and will surely use him again.
This is my first time using DogVacay and I was impressed with Dana. I was at ease knowing Miles was in good hands and I really like the email updates too. He was very flexible during problems I was experiencing picking up Miles. I will be using his services in the future and I highly recommend him.
I have to say by far the greatest dog sitter. My little guy needed alittle extra care and without hesitation Dana and his family welcomed my dog into there home. And gave him nothing but, Love as if he was apart of their own. I got pictures and text messages while I was gone with him playing and enjoying his stay. Which ofcourse made me feel very comfortable knowing that he was happy. I will definitely use Dana again and I thank him and his family for taking such good care of my Reese while we were gone.
Dana did a fantastic job taking care of my English setter, I received lots of updates and my pup came home very happy. Very reasonable pricing and easy to work with, and I hope to use Dana's dogsitting services in the future!
