About Dave

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I have always owned dogs. We love playing and interacting with them. We have an oversized yard with a 6 foot fence that encloses 100% of the yard. In the summer, we fill up a kid sized pool if the dog wants to cool off.

I am known in my neighborhood as the Dog Walker. We have many tree lined parks that offer a nice comfortable walk (even in the hot muggy Florida summers).

Dogs are welcome to sleep on the bed if they choose.

Your pet will get plenty of attention, fun, and affection.

PS: I never mix pets from multiple owners unless both owners agree and both pets have a meet and greet where they are observed to make sure they are compatible.

Recently, I had the honor to have been selected by DogVayCay to be interviewed by ABC News to talk about my experience being a dog watcher. Here is the link to that interview. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ma0TixAyp8

Dave is awesome and Cooper loves him.
My dog had a relaxing and wonderful time at Dave's home. Dave and his wife are super friendly, warm, dog lovers and responsible. They have a large fenced in backyard which is perfect for dogs to explore, chase balls and just chill.
Signing up on DogVacay was quick and easy. I found Dave, who lives in my neighborhood, had a meet and great with my dog, Lad, after booking my daycare.
Friday, Lad had a great time and slept very well that evening indicating he had a busy, active day. Dave and Rebecca have a large backyard for play and running. They are a great couple and love pets. Lad was definitely happy and content during his stay.
Mork and Mindy seemed to be very happy when we came and picked them up. I think they got lots of love and attention while we were gone. We will definitely use them the next time we go out of town. Thank you Dave and Rebecca for loving on my children while we were away! They mean the world to us!

I felt completely confident that Dave understood my dogs needs and that she was well looked after while at his house. The fenced yard is perfect and Dave sent me photos showing my dog doing what she does best...sleeping on the couch and watching the birds outside! Periodic Emails assured me that my girl was ok. Thanks so much Dave!
Dave and his wife Rebecca were amazing! Dave took my reservation within minutes of my request. I received many photo updates, and my dog Cami was happy in every one of them. Talking with both Dave and Rebecca, they truly love dogs, and go out of their way to make your dog feel like part of their family. This was truly a great experience for my family. I Highly recommend them!
Dave was an excellent sitter to our dog during her visit with him. You can tell he genuinely enjoys pet sitting and will take excellent care of your dog. Thanks again!
My labradoodle Sippy has found a second home for when I am away! It's soooo nice not to have to worry if he is being cuddled enough or able to chase lizards and play. We love that he had another pup to interact and play with - for us that is a plus! No doubt we will be recurrent customers!! Many thanks.
Graham (1 year old Golden Retriever puppy) had a wonderful 9 day stay at Dave's! He did an outstanding job keeping Graham busy and well exercised (walks twice a day and lots of kiddie pool time). He has a large fenced back yard with plenty of shade and of course the kiddie pool that Graham loved to hang out in! Dave sent daily pictures and updates which was very comforting while I was away. I could tell Graham was cared for as if he was part of the family! Thanks Dave for taking such great care of my fur baby! I'll definitely use Dave's place again for my future needs!!!
Dave was an excellent choice. It was obvious to us that he liked Bucky & Bucky liked him. The totally fenced in yard is a big plus. We will use Dave again.
Inka had a great stay at Daves and enjoyed his swimming pool, Dave was willing to let me drop her off early in the morning which I appreciated and she got lots of attention.
Dave and his wife took excellent care of our pet during our absence. We especially appreciated the pictures of him romping in the wading pool and having a good time.
My dog absolutely cannot wait to go to Dave's house. When we get there, he leaps out of the car and can't wait to see Dave. I can't recommend him enough.
Dave is a great pet sitter. He plays with my dog in the big backyard at his house, throwing tennis balls and shooting basketballs that my dog loves to chase. Whenever my dog comes back from Dave's, he's played all day and is worn out! He gets great exercise. Highly recommend Dave as a sitter for your dog.
Dave is located just blocks from our home so that was a real plus to start with. Our dog Spencer is a 6 year old boxer, who we rescued 4 years ago. He generally does not like other dogs or strangers at first, especially men, so finding a place to take him or someone to care for him has been challenging.
Dave and his wife are real "dog people" and Spencer took to them both right. He was giving them boxer kisses after just 15 minutes!
We had never boarded him before before so we did an overnight test while we were still at home....just in case. Spencer did just fine and we have already made reservations for 2 more upcoming vacations. It is such a relief to know he will be comfy in a home like setting (without other dogs around) with people caring for him like their own family pet!
Hank had a blast with Dave. Dave and his wife are great with dogs and they have a huge back yard! I would recommend Dave to anybody who asked.
Eve had a great stay with Dave over this past weekend. She was well taken care of and I might even say she was spoiled with attention. She had a great time playing in the big back yard. A good sign that she had a great time is that she was actually tired when she got home...tough to do with this energetic dog!
