About Dane & Tony

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey, we were in the news! Check us out!! :D
http://youtu.be/F8gm3bqqPg4

Just two young professionals looking to pal it up with a nice quadruped! Dane (left) works as a hydrologist in the city during the week and is home weekends, while Tony (right) works mostly from home during the day, but goes in to work many evenings and weekends. Ideally, the pups we take on are well-behaved (housebroken, no constant barkers).

Feel free to check with us if your dates are blocked off on the calendar. Occasionally we forgot to take down a cancellation or we have a dog that is good with other dogs.

Dane and Tony are great. My dog had a great time with them. They kept me well informed of my dogs stay. The pictures they sent were great too.
Bambino enjoyed his time there as per usual!
great experience
Dane and Tony took such great care of Oreo! I would highly recommend them for your dog. You won't be disappointed. They sent great pictures of Oreo and kept me updated on his time spent at their home. I'm very happy I found these guys!
Dane & Tony were great as per usual! Bambino loves staying here :)
You guys are awesome. Thanks
Dane and Tony are lovely! I'll admit, I'm somewhat high maintenance with my dog (I'm probably over protective) and knowing that Dane and Tony are caring for my dog while I away puts me at ease - and actually allows me to enjoy my vacation. I'd highly recommend them!

Awesome!! Dane and Tony did a great job. Our pup came home bathed and very happy. Thank you!
These guys are great! They are so easy to work with, highly responsive, and genuinely care about our dog. We will definitely work with them again!
Oscar had a great time - Thanks!
Great as usual!
Dane and Tony's mellow, yet engaged, approach was a great fit for my enthusiastic dog for the six weeks she stayed with them. It was a huge relief knowing that she was receiving the attention and exercise needed to keep her happy and healthy. Highly recommended!

Our pups seemed to really enjoy Dane and Tony. They came home bathed and exhausted. There was a slight problem with their phone so I didn't receive many pictures, but I did get a nice email update detailing their moods and activities. They were also very flexible with pick up times, as we got stuck in traffic and were way later than anticipated. Thank you!

They were great! Our boy, Bort, seemed like he enjoyed himself. So much so, in fact, he slept for about 12 hours after he came home, meaning he likely got a ton of playtime in.
It was mostly a smooth experience except there were a few problem areas:

1. There was a dog with fleas staying the same weekend - we left flea medicine but the hosts forgot to put it on our dog. She ended up with fleas :(
2. They weren't super punctual about when they said they'd be back to return her.
3. Their profile lists their address incorrectly - just minor annoyances but it kinda adds to the stress.

Overall, the hosts are nice people, they have a cute space, maybe it was just a tough weekend for them.

We highly recommend Dane & Tony. They took good care of Boomer, our beagle, over a weekend and even sent us photos to keep us posted on his stay. We didn't worry one bit and had the peace of mind B was getting lots of love. Thanks, guys!
Pawsome! Cookie was well looked after and came home happy and looking good. Thanks again Tony & Dane for looking after her!
Dane and Tony were fantastic. Brie got along great with them at the meet & greet and was a very happy puppy when we picked her up.
Dane and Tony were amazing! Bambino came back a healthy and happy pup and he would love to visit again :D.
Dane and Tony really like dogs and they took really good care ours. I would go back and will be scheduling another dogvacay next month.
Dane & Tony were wonderful! We felt completely comfortable leaving our baby girl in their hands.
Tony and Dane made our Christmas travels happen. We left our dog Bear with them for a solid 2 weeks which was a very long time but they didn't complain and were very professional. There were other dogs around and we even received a few pictures and texts during the stay that made us feel better and Bear was in good hands.

Our flights back were cancelled and we had to extend his stay an extra 2 days, but they ended up comping the nights for us which was very generous and had great things to say about Bear.

We're definitely going to use Dander Mifflin again, thanks a ton Tony and Dane!

Awesome once again! We rally appreciate the last minute availabilty!
Dane & Tony are great! They are friendly, accommodating of travel schedules, and seemed to genuinely take my dog's comfort and care to heart. They also sent a thoughtful weekend update with pictures of my dog, which was sweet.
Great communication, extremely flexible, and very understanding of our pugs needs. Dane and Tony were great and were willing to help us out even with our last minute reservation. Would book again!
This was an incredible experience! As a first time user, Dane and Tony went out of their way to make sure drop off and pick up times were suited to MY needs. They were incredibly helpful and sincere. When I picked up my dog, he was soooo tired. It was obvious they had taken great care of him. I would gladly use them again!

Bailey was very well taken care of. Thank you Tony and Dane!
Dander Mifflin's Dane and Tony were awesome! My doggies came back happy and content. During our meet and greet the guys seemed comfortable and knowledgeable even in the face of a little pup scuffle with a dog currently staying there. They were cool and confident and that is super important to me. My dogs had a great time on their Dog Vacay. I got updates on the adventures they were having and I felt great know that, although we could not bring the dogs with us to Disneyland, they were having a blast with the guys :) I loved these guys so much I already booked our second Dog Vacay for Brewsky and Spud.

Dane and Tony are simply amazing. Our dogs had a blast and we can't wait to book with them again in the future!
Tony and Dane did a great job with our 15 and a half year old Westie Jody. Jody is in good health but very clingy and used to her home surroundings and routine. Not too many months ago, our older Westie Whiney died at almost age 18. The 2 dogs were inseparable and that has caused Jody to become even more needy for companionship and affection. I was very honest in my initial conversations with Tony, but his candor and willingness to take her made me feel quite at ease. We left her 8 days so we could travel to see our toddler grandson. We received an update that though she missed us, she was eating, taking walks and sleeping just fine. I would definitely recommend Dane and Tone to other nervous doggie parents. Joan

The communication was great, including pictures of our dog. He clearly had a great time with Dane and Tony. We will definitely be sending him back.
Dane and Tony took great care of Doomer, and he was returned happy and healthy after a lengthy stint (3 weeks!).

Thanks for being so accommodating, and for receiving Doomer on such short notice.

It made the vacation worry free knowing he is in such good hands. Dane and Tony sent us pics and a great description of all the fun Doomer was having.

Thanks!

Lando always has a great time with these guys. He even made friends with a cat!
Great team to watch my babies while I was out of town. Dane & Tony sent me pictures and email updates to let me know the dogs were good, and all was well. I really appreciated all the communication, it comforted me while I was away. The whole process was smooth, from meeting them to dropping off the dogs, and picking them up when I returned home. I would definitely recommend them, and would use them again!!!!!!

These guys are awesome! Tino fell in love with themAnd was treated like a king. They even picked him up and delivered him back at no extra charge. I'd use them again in a heartbeat!
Bear had a great time with Dane and Tony, and I had a great time traveling with the pictures that they sent. They were flexible about drop-off and pick-up times, which was fantastic. We'll be back!
Dane and Tony were great, keeping us updated with reports and photos to show that all was well. Chubi was very comfortable staying with them and we will definitely call on them again. Strongly recommended.
Dane and Tony are great! Salvatore always has an excellent time with them. I especially appreciate how caring and communicative they are. We will continue to send Sal to them in the future. I always feel comfortable going away knowing my furry pal is in good hands. Thanks Dane and Tony!

Dane and Tony took care of the pups again for Memorial Day Weekend and the pups had a great time, as usual!
great hosts!
Phenomenal experience. I think my dog was disappointed to come home. I wouldn't consider using anyone else next time I'm out of town.
Roxie isn't into quality time away her home so am delighted to have the option of leaving her with Tony and Dane. She comes back the same dog that I dropped off - is back into her routine in no time, like she'd never left. Round the clock supervision and great care is undoubtedly the reason why.

Another great visit with Dane & Tony! Our pups love it there, and Dane & Tony are awesome with regular updates and hilarious photos so I don't worry about the pups!
Great as usual! They are accommodating, flexible and our dogs always come home health, happy and whole!
Dane and Tony did a fantastic job taking care of my two Puggles, Lola and KD. Dane and Tony are super easy going and a pleasure to work with. They sent me text updates with pictures everyday. My two girls seemed happy and relaxed when I returned after a weeks stay with Dane and Tony. Great job guys! Lola and KD say thanks for taking such good care of us! Woof!

A great stay for Lando, as usual. Dane and Tony were very flexible with accommodating us for Lando's most recent stay. It was a bit last-minute, but they took care of us and the doggy with no worries. These guys are great, and our doggy always comes home happy and relaxed.

This was our dog's 3rd (I think) stay with Tony and Dane, and our (including the doggy's) experience was as great as usual.
Dane and Tony are absolutely great with our two dogs and cat. All the animals got along (they have two small dogs, too), and Tony sent pictures during our vacation and an update e-mail that was so reassuring--and a work of fine comedy writing in its own right ;) They understand the anxiety of leaving pets behind in a new place for the first time, and they really "got" our pets' quirky personalities, too, and made fast friends.

Best of all, when our dachshund had a freak toenail-shearing accident that could have happened anywhere, Tony and Dane took him to the vet twice, sent frequent updates, and all told, were great caretakers. The vet visits were fully insured, and though it's always tough to be away from your pet when he's not 100% well, I was confident that Tony and Dane were doing everything possible to make sure our dog was comfortable and getting the best care possible.

Dane and Tony are AMAZING and just a real pleasure to know. They are kind, respectful, and my pup is super relaxed and happy around them. Their genuine nature is the perfect mix for my dog and I am always at ease knowing that he is being well taken care of. They are my go to folks when I need to have somewhere for my dog to stay and I would highly recommend them to anyone :)

Tony and Dane are wonderful. I could tell they are pros at this. When I dropped my dog off, Tony asked all the right questions and I instantly felt at ease. They gave very nice updates, communicated well, and accommodated my schedule. I highly recommend them, and would not hesitate to leave my dog with them again.

We were pretty nervous about boarding our very shy and sensitive Picco for the 1st time and for 3 weeks. We went and met with Dane and Tony. They answered all our questions and reassured us that they had dealt with all kinds of dogs before and that that would be able to watch him on pretty short notice. We felt very confident about leaving Picco with them. Tony started sending us pictures and updates the 1st day, and would answer all our e-mails promptly. Picco, had a great stay, and seems to be more sociable and self assured now than he was when we first left him. So we'll definitely leave him with Dane and Tony again... Thanks

Dane and Tony were our first DogVacay sitters. We had just moved to this area and were a little nervous about leaving Zoe with folks we didn't know. These guys are SO awesome and made us all feel welcome. They take great care of Zoe and we feel very comfortable leaving her in such good hands. Thanks guys!

Tony and Dane are great! they really helped me out in a pinch by taking care of my senior dog while I was out of town on extended vacation. Chuwee had a blast with them and I couldn't be happier !!! much thanks you guys. dan
Dane & Tony are awesome dog sitters! This was the second time our pups have stayed with them and everything was great. D&T send lots of updates and photos and it looks like the pups always have a great time. They're taken care of like family, I know I don't have to worry! Will definitely book with them again.

Our dog's 3rd stay with Dane and Tony, and as great as usual!
Noni and Chico seemed to have a great time and I have no doubt they were well taken care of. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a dog sitter in the Alameda area.
This was my first time using dogvacay and I have to admit that I was a little anxious, but I am SO happy to have found Dane and Tony. They are absolutely wonderful. Frank is a nervous dog, but after being with them for a night, he was so comfortable with them the second time we dropped him off -- he walked right in and roamed around without us (which is rare for Frank). Dane and Tony are very laid back, flexible, and responsive. I have no reservations about having them take care of Frank and know that he is well taken care of.

Tony and Dane are beyond awesome. My sweet but somewhat anxiety-prone dog is completely and immediately comfortable with them. This means I can relax while I'm away and not worry that my dog is causing problems or having an a doggie emotional episode. Really, I think he has as much fun on our vacations as we do. This is understandable, since Tony and Dane are so fun and chill. They get 5 million stars.

Dane and Tony were great with my 3 pups! This was my first time leaving the doggies with them and it was stressful for me, I don't like leaving the dogs and I worry about them tremendously--one is very old and not doing too great, one is nervous, one is dangerously allergic to bee stings, etc. So I asked if they could send me multiple updates each day with photos and they more than accommodating! I got lots and lots of email updates, with pictures, and that's exactly what I was looking for.

D&T also had no issues with the dogs' food (it's dehydrated raw food, they have to do a bit more to prepare it instead just throwing kibble in a bowl) and one of my pups needs supplements, and they handled that with no problem. The pups were well taken care of and they had a lot of fun. I would definitely go with Dane and Tony again.

Dane and Tony were great with our (sometimes difficult) dogs! One of them is deaf, the other has leash aggression and together the two of them can be a handful. Everything from the booking to the lead up to the actual stay went very smoothly. You can tell they truly love pups...they got trips to the dog park and lots of love and attention. Would love to have them watch our dogs again!

Dane and TonyC were wonderful hosts to my little girl, Sachi, a 14 month old 12-lb chihuahua-mix bundle of energy. They were very kind, soft-spoken, and attentive to her wishes. Their home is warm and cozy, and VERY inviting to small dogs who love cuddling with their hosts on soft sofas. She played enthusiastically with the other pups and snuggled up to the wonderful old, very gentle husky who was also visiting. She got lots of walks and playtime which she craves. She saw Tony this morning while we were shopping (in the rain), and I could hardly get her back into my car. There's no doubt that she wants to visit Dane and TonyC again! I recommend them highly.

This is the second time our dog stayed with Tony and Dane, and they were as great as before. Very understanding and patient dudes that know dogs.
So happy to have found Dander Mifflin! Tony and Dane were really nice in the initial meet & greet, and Tony replied to my texts promptly to answer my questions and schedule the first visit. He was very flexible re. logistics, which was tremendously helpful to me. My dog had a great time at Dander Mifflin, and I'm sure he loved the walks, the dog park outing, and all the snuggle time. He came back happy and tired.

Tony is amazing! He is incredibly responsive, kind, and has such a chill disposition that puts both myself and my pup at ease. My dog Milo is a rescue so he has some nervousness around new people, but he took to Tony really quickly. After a week or so he is already at the belly rub stage when Tony walks in. I will definitely be continuing to have him walk Milo and I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a dog walker, dog sitter, or dog bff.

Dane and Tony did a great job taking care of our two Chihuahuas while we were traveling for 12 days. We received a detailed email during our trip about how the pups were doing and asking us for information to better understand how to take care of them. We would definitely recommend!

After meeting with several boarding services in an attempt to find a suitable boarding environment for my dogs (Henry and June), I set up a meeting with Tony through DogVacay.
When I first met with Tony my initial impression was that he was intelligent, responsible, and sensitive; sensitive to both my overprotective concerns and the idiosyncratic needs of my dogs, Henry and June (Frenchies with the typical brachiocephalic issues).
I just picked up Henry and June after their six day stay at Dale and Tony’s and I can state without equivocation that my initial impression was on target. While I travelled I was put at ease by Tony’s responsiveness (with bonus adorable pics of Henry and June), and Henry and June were happy, healthy, and relaxed when I picked them up.
I have already lined up another Henry and June vacay at Dale and Tony’s, and of course I would recommend Dale and Tony to anyone looking for a safe, responsible, and caring boarding situation.

Thank you, Tony and Dane, for taking such great care of Gus last weekend! It was hard to leave him for three days, but knowing he was in your capable hands allowed us to enjoy our trip. He was exhausted when we brought him home yesterday, another great sign that he was active, stimulated, and way too busy to miss us. I would gladly recommend you to other dog owners—and you haven't seen the last of Gus!

Dane and Tony were wonderful. They were flexible and incredibly responsive. I would use absolutely use their services again!
Wow. Dane and Tony were awesome. Paddy was very comfortable in their care and looked absolutely happy when we picked him up. Great dogvacay people! I bet Paddy can't wait to see them again.
Tony watched Willee the Pug and did a great job managing Willee's separation anxiety. Plan to use Tony over and over again. Willee gets excited just driving up the drive way and cannot wait to get in the door to his new BFF Tony. Michelle
Dane and Tony are THE BEST. My dog is slow to warm up to some strangers, and definitely slow to warm up to other dogs -- she loved them immediately, and didn't seem to want to leave when I came to pick her up after the first day. They even socialize her to try to get her more used to other dogs, to great success so far. They've had no problems with getting her her medication, and they go out of their way (literally) to make sure she's well taken care of. Super flexible, super responsible, and best yet, very excellent with dogs. I feel SO grateful and lucky to have found them! I'll never go anywhere else as long as they're available.

They were great. Very flexible. And they didnt freak out when my dog got a hot spot the day I dropped him off. They treated the hot spot with no problems... didnt even bat an eye. And when I went to pick Reese up he was content and not anxious to leave at all. I imagine that he will be happy to return next time... I have already booked another stay.

Dane and Tony looked after our dog over a weekend and were great. Really nice guys, very relaxed, and our dog came home happy and tired.
Dane and Tony were very responsive, reliable, friendly and easy to work with. Coco loved her week on the island.
Thank you very much for taking care of us, while our parents were away. We enjoyed ourselves a lot. We know our parents were worried about us especially worried about the two of you, because we can be a handful. But because you were so sweet with us we had no choice but to be good! We tried very hard! Tony and Dane gave us lots of Huggs and kisses. We will tell all our doggie pals to go there on vacation.
