About Daniel

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My Specialties are Caring for your Dog at my home or yours. I am at my home/Large Condo all day long, when taking care of your dog. I am a Professional trainer and Navy Veteran. If your dog has any behavior issues, i can help.

I have a passion to work and be with dogs. I have raised and trained many different breeds of dogs for over 40 years. All my dogs were well trained and FRISBEE dogs. Even though i believe dogs should be trained i still believe they should be allowed their free spirit. In fact, i enjoy inspiring them to do so. It just needs to be channeled.

When your dog is in my care i take care of him/her as if they were my own. I make it fun with short games and tricks. Bring their favorite treat and let me know what fun thing your dog likes to do. Safety is 1st here. I am semi retired and love taking care of Sarah and our furry guests. Sarah is a Yorky with a gentle soul who loves other people and all dogs once she gets to know them. She does get a bit jealous at 1st, then she wants to play or just hang out.

When Sitting, Boarding or Checking up on your dog at your home i can also provide other types of services, Such as: waste clean up, water plants and Care for other Types of PETS

I proud to be a member of GSROC and The Ark of San Juan Dog Rescue organizations. I Train dogs for GSROC and get them ready for adoption. Memeber of Professional United Pet Sitters Association.

Dan would make a great addition to DogVacay, because he is very good with dogs. Has been all his life. There has been at least 8 dogs that he has trained in his life. Like play Frisbee, sit, be off leash, came when called, took them to the mountains, & various places with him. He cares about them & would treat any dog as if it was one of the family...

Our dog, Benjamin, had a great time with Daniel while we we were away for 2 weeks. Dan did an excellent job and also gave Benjamin the eye-care he needed. We were glad to see the same happy dog when we returned. Thanks Dan.
Loki was in good hands with Daniel. Loki is a special needs, elderly dog and Daniel gave him the care he needed. We were able to enjoy our vacation without any concerns. Daniel sent daily messages and pics to ease our minds. Thanks Daniel!
Rufus had a beautiful stay with Daniel! Daniel made Rufus feel right at home, played with him, took him for great walks and worked on basic behavior training with him. I got photos and updates every day. I was very happy with this experience and will certainly have Rufus stay with Daniel again!!
We are a happy returning customer - and our little doggy always wags when we drop her off!
Zoey loved her stay with Dan - she came back so happy! Very much recommend Dan!
Thanks Dan for the excellent care given Buddy while I was away. Knowing Buddy is in good hands makes leaving town so much easier for me. Beware I'm already making plans for future endeavors so I hope your calendar isn't to full !!! Thanks Again
Dan did a fantastic job as usual. I am very impressed with both his knowledge and skills in the area of training. Dan's flexibility with my scheduling really makes it easier on me, but it's his affection & love of dogs that gives me peace of mind knowing Buddy will be well taken care of. Thanks Dan
Dan did great with my Australian Cattle Dog, Bender. A couple accidents in the house, probably due to the stress of a stranger in the house without me, but Daniel went above and beyond by trying to clean them up. Also bought food with money I left him since I left town in a hurry. Kept up with Bender's training and sent an update every day. Definitely will use him again!
Thank You Dan, The work out you gave my dog Buddy was fantastic. I can see the value in running him, and thank you for the training exercises to stop Buddy from pulling on his leash. We can now walk without getting my shoulder socket removed.
