About Nathan

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, I'm Nathan, owner of Detroit Loves You Guest Home (DLY), the first and most reviewed Airbnb in Detroit.

I've been hosting human guests and their pets for over 6 years, and began hosting dog & cat guests 3 years ago. Here's how it works:

When I receive your request if there are no preexisting human guest reservations for your dates, I'll accept your reservation. Any future human guests requesting your dates will be informed of your pets' reservation and given the option to confirm. I'll notify you if so. If they plan on bringing any pets I'll verify compatibility with you and them before confirming, of course.

If there are any preexisting human guest reservations for your dates I'll let you know, and find out if you are OK with your pets being here when they are.
If I get your go-ahead I will then contact them and ask about any objections (allergies, phobias, etc.). If hosting your pets works for everyone, I'll happily accept your reservation.

The more advance notice the better the chances I can accept your pets' reservation.

When pets are being hosted at DLY, I am available to provide any care needed, including potty breaks & walks, while working from my office here, about 7:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday. My Piety Hill neighborhood is excellent for dog walking, and my route takes us through a long park, where I jog with larger dogs who like to run.

My business partner and avid dog lover, Gregg B., spends some nights at DLY each month while working on home improvements, and when here he provides pet care in my stead.

Human guests, if any, provide potty breaks and possibly walks, when neither Gregg nor I are at DLY.
If there are no human guests, nor Gregg, and your pet must have a potty break between when I leave work and return the next morning, I can be available to return to DLY for this purpose.

Thanks for considering my services, and supporting DLY's mission to uplift and transform the Piety Hill neighborhood and Detrot. I'm excited to meet you and your pets!

- Nathan

Nathan was amazing with my two geriatric cats. Mista Wiskas has been receiving treatment for eight month for cancer that requires him to be pulled daily. If anyone has ever pilled a cat then they must know you have to be a cat whisperer to be able to pill a cat you never met before within 15 minutes of Nathan arriving. I would call Nathan to take care of my babies anytime! Thanks so much!

Nathan was absolutely great to work with. He took great care of my dog. I would definitely send my dog back to Nathan.
This is our second time leaving Oscar in Nathan's capable hands. As soon as we got out of the car, Oscar's tail started wagging, he was so excited to see Nathan! He was well taken care of and clearly had the time of his life once again. We wouldn't leave Oscar with anyone else but Nathan!

Nathan was everything you could ask in a doggie babysitter and more. Oscar has extreme separation anxiety so my heart breaks every time I leave him.

Nathan put us at ease right away, starting from when he completely re-arranged his schedule to accommodate our last minute request.

When we dropped Oscar off to Nathan, we knew right away that he was in good hands. Nathan asked all the right questions and Oscar seemed to feel immediately comfortable with him. A half hour after we had left, we received a text from Nathan letting us know how well Oscar was settling in.

When we returned, Oscar barely even seemed excited to see us! We sat and chatted with Nathan for quite a while on his porch, and while we did so, Oscar kept going back and forth between inside the house and us on the porch - normally Oscar wouldn't leave our side after we had left him alone with a stranger!!

Needless to say, we couldn't imagine leaving Oscar with anyone else moving forward! Staying with Nathan truly is a dog vacation!

Nathan was an amazing host for my little Rocco. He was very flexible and accommodated to my needs. He was very accessible from the star to finish. I definitely, I would let Rocco in Nathan' s hands again. I would highly recommend him to any person.
Thanks again, Nathan .
