About David

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my wife and I live in Upper Allen Township outside of Mechanicsburg, Pa and have owned dogs for more than 25 years. All of our dogs have been rescued dogs. We treat our dogs as one of the family. They are cared for and loved very much. Our home is an average size with a large backyard that is fenced in. Our current dog prefers to walk around the neighborhood which we usually do at least 4 times a day. She was rescued from an Ohio shelter and was used primarily for breeding so she's not use to playing very much with toys. She does enjoy chewing on hard bones and playing with the boxer across the street. We would take great care of your dog and would want you to have the peace of mind that we have when we have to leave our girl with someone when we go away on a trip.

This is the first time Sadie has been away from us since we got her a year ago. Car travel makes her a bit nervous,but after a few minutes with David and Sweet Pea and Chewy she seemed to be okay. We received texts and pictures of a very relaxed girl while we were away.I was a bit envious she appeared to be in more of a vacation mode than me.
We'll be back!! Thank you. Mary and Rob

We had a great experience with David. We appreciated the updates on how Chewie was doing, and Chewie came home nice and tired--just the way we like it! We would definitely have Chewie stay with David again. Thank you for giving Chewie such a great getaway!

Hershey had a great stay! In fact she was a little lonely when she got home. I think she missed her new buddy Sweet Pea. The hosts were awesome and put us at ease. Our dog got excellent care and we plan to take her back again
Bernie (my dog) and I had done a "meet and greet" so I had a good sense of the people and their home. He stayed with Dave and Mary just one overnight. They texted me during his vacay to let me know how well he was doing. That was very reassuring since this was his first time away from me since I adopted him in December. The best recommendation I can give is that he was perfectly normal when we got home. No trauma as I've had with other dogs when boarded. I love the home vacay idea and Dave was the perfect sitter.

Our experience with David and Mary was excellent! They are very nice people, were accommodating with the drop off and pick up times, and they very welcoming to us and our dog, Bella. We were away for quite a long time, but never felt worried about Bella because she was in their home and we knew they were taking good care of her. I would not hesitate to bring her back to them. I'm so happy that I found DogVacay and David! Thank you!

Dave and Mary were wonderful sitters!! My samoyed had a great stay at their house. I'm so glad I found them. They are close by and had excellent communication. I will use them again!!
David and Mary took great care of my 8 year old min pin, Manny. He was relaxed and happy when I picked him up. He appeared to be having a great time with their Samoyed and a Beagle named Oliver. I will continue to use them for my trips. Couldn't be happier with them!

Daisy had an awesome time. During our week away we received periodic updates on how she was which was awesome. Thank you so much
Pedro had a great visit with Dave and his wife This was our first time doing this and we felt reassured with the updates and messages that our boy was having a good time while we're away They really care about their dog visitors and also have a very sweet dog too! I would recommend them and will be booking them again. Thanks again Dave! .!

Mary and David took a very good care of my Happy. Thank you David and Mary
Our host David was great! He was very quick to respond to my messages.This was my first time using dogvacay and David and his wife were great at answering all my questions. They were also very flexible about scheduling the meet and greet with us. Our dog lady seemed to really like their dog. We were updated with pictures and messages throughout the weekend. When we picked lady up, she seemed very comfortable there, almost like she didn't want to leave. They were great and I would recommend them to everyone in the area. We will definitely contact them again if we ever need to. It was a much better fit for lady vs. using a kennel.

Dave and Mary took excellent care of our dog Bridget. The meet and greet provided much anxietal relief and it got better from there. They supplied us with updates and photos and seemed genuinely happy to take care of her. Likewise, Bridget seemed genuinely happy to be there.

David was very kind and caring. Gunner got home cooked meals and got pampered. We will definitely use David again.
David and his family were wonderful. My puppy really enjoyed his stay. Would highly recommend.
My dog Stella is timid and has particular care needs. She was very well taken care of by David and his family, including their sweet dog. Will definitely use again if they're available when I next need a dog sitter, and would recommend to others. Thank you!

Riley had a great time. He came home a slept happily for the next 2 days. He's looking forward to coming back.
Sadie had a wonderful time with David. She got to go on walks and play with other dogs. I feel very comfortable with David as a caregiver for my chocolate lab, Sadie. I will use his services whenever I go on vacation.
David was absolutely wonderful! He tried to learn the details about my dog's routine prior to her stay and tried to mirror that as much as possible (including letting my pup sleep in bed) in order to help her acclimate to her new home for the week. David is just one of those people that dogs seem to gravitate towards and feel at ease with. My dog had stayed at another sitter's home previously and had a lot of anxiety the entire time, but she felt right at home with David and his dog, Sweet Pea. He took my dog on multiple walks each day, and she also got plenty of supervised time to run free and play in his backyard, too. Because he is retired, he had plenty of time to spoil my pup with attention and was great at keeping me up-to-date with texts and pictures throughout the day. I often received evidence of how sleepy my pup was from all the fun all day long! I would highly recommend him-- my dog looked like she was having just as much fun on her DogVacay as we were on our vacation!

Marbles was well taken care of and enjoyed her first play day away since we adopted her a year ago. It was nice for us to have a getaway without worry.
So happy to have found David. Our little Lucy was treated very well and even slept with David and Mary in their bed at night. We received pics and updates. (I think Lucy spent lots of time on David's lap) We will definitely be repeat customers. Lucy is a puppy mill rescue and is quite shy. She did very well. Once you meet David you will recognize that he does this because he truly loves the dogs! Thanks David and Mary! Lucy will be back!!

Henley's weekend stay at David's was great! I received several text messages (with pictures) letting me know what my little guy was up to. He was right at home! I would definitely recommend David and will certainly consider him for my future pup sitting needs.
