About David

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Currently I am a Kinesiology major at Cal State University East Bay and my expertise is health and fitness. Dogs like people need exercise and healthy habits to live a fulfilling and enjoyable life. This job is a good combination for me because it combines my love of animals with my love of health. I am a very active person and I have a hard time sitting still. I need fresh air, I need to be active, it's in my nature. I'm like a dog in that regard, I need to be walked, ran, and fed of course.

Dogs of different sizes have different needs for activity. Based on the size and energy level of a dog the exercise or walk/run needs to be adjusted. Some breeds need to be able to sprint, jump, or fetch while other breeds just need to have a nice brisk walk.

I know of many dog parks and dog friendly places to walk or play. I have my preferred areas but upon request I could take your dog to a favorite spot or just around the neighborhood you live depending on the situation. Some dogs are very particular about where they go, favorite trees, favorite bushes, specific smells which is completely normal.

I have owned dogs my whole life up until a few years ago. I really miss having them around. I'm not quite ready to own a dog again so that's why at this point in my life Dog Vacay is a perfect solution.

David has watched my dog for me many times, and every time he returns happy, healthy and blissfully tired. My dog is very high energy and can be a "bad listener," and David is firm with him in such a great way. Is he the next Dog Whisperer? He has taught me a few tricks about how to be in control, and how to help my dog listen better. Couldn't be happier with his service, and I'll certainly be using him more. One time, my dog even got sprayed by a skunk and poor David bathed him and de-stunk him. Thank you, David!!

Sadly my review is not as glowing as previously. David texted me the morning of the day I was returning to check my arrival time. I texted him later when I was close to home to discover he had fed and walked my dog to suit his schedule and had already left, at least an hour before I had requested. I got home to find he had left a bag of soiled cat litter in my bathroom trash can. He followed that up by sending me a quote for a future visit we had discussed well in advance, suddenly increasing the price by 65%! Needless to say I have found someone else to look after my pets. I have no doubt he can look after the pets if that is all that is required, but pet-sitting involves more than just seeing to their basic needs and that is where I was very disappointed.

David was great. He arrived on time, answered my numerous questions, kept me updated and left my place spotless.
David did a great job. Came when he said he would, checked in with me and sent a photo of one tired dog! All I want is competent and reliable, and David is definitely both.
