About Devin

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello Dog Lover!,

I have worked with dogs for many years and have had the privilege of working with DogVacay for one year. I am an experienced dog groomer who has dealt with many breeds and many behaviors. Through DogVacay I have become very familiar with separation anxiety and how to handle it the best way. Each dog behaves very different when staying at my home the first time. I do everything I can to ensure each dog that stays with me is given the same love and attention that they are given at home. I treat every dog like they are my own.

I have a large home with two empty master bedrooms and a fenced in backyard. The kitchen is gated off all day to avoid any food aggression from dogs and the upstairs is also gated off to avoid injuries on the stairs. The door leading to the backyard is located in the living room and is supervised throughout the day. If I am leaving the house and a dog does not have a kennel I will let them free roam. However, if I have multiple dogs I will leave them in separate rooms with food, water, any toys they have and a pet bed to make them comfortable while I am away.

My dog,Toki, is a very loving and calm dog. She loves other dogs especially small dogs. She has met many dogs through DogVacay and has never had a bad experience. She is very caring of dogs that stay with us and even helps calm separation anxiety. She is in tune with the behaviors and attitudes of other dogs and will separate herself if a dog does not want to play. A majority of the time she becomes best friends with other dogs VERY quickly.

In my neighborhood there are several close places to take dogs on short or long walks. Priest Point Park and Tolmie are just a few of the many places I have taken dogs. When I am not walking dogs I have a backyard that is big enough for dogs to roam and play. On rainy days we have fun inside playing with several toys available to each dog, as well as, several comfy dog beds if they would rather nap.

I will provide 24 hour care for your pets and make them feel comfortable in any way I can. This past years with DogVacay has been a great experience and I have met a lot of wonderful dogs. I love what I do and could not ask for a better job! If you are looking for a caring and responsible dog sitter I am available and I would love to watch your pup!

Devin took great care of our two dogs! He was very flexible on pickup and drop off times. He's also very quick to respond to messages! He also gave the pups little goodie bags when they left and oh do they love their new toys!
Devin is wonderful! Ranger was alittle nervous at drop off but warmed up quickly with Devin... he must have had such such a blast at daycare, because he is usually high enetgy...
he came home afterwatd exhausted...he hit the couch and was snoring the rest of the night...I think he must have played hard all day.

Smokey had a great time as usual! Thanks Devin!
Devin has been great! We have him watch our 60 lb 1.5 year old pup every week or two for the day and occasionally over night. Our dog is always really happy and excited to get there and seems to have a great time. Devin is also really good to work with and quick to respond.

This was my first time leaving my puppy. Devin watched my 4 month old lab/border collie mix for a week and a half. From the meet and greet, I knew it was a great fit. Lacey (my puppy) became fast friends with Skwisgaar. The two were inseparable the whole time and I got pictures and video every other day. As much as I missed her, I knew Lacey was in great hands and wasn't worried at all. Devin is now our go-to sitter and I know Lacey will be safe and have fun while with him!

Devin watched our dog Scout for 10 days over the Thanksgiving holiday. Scout is not quite 1 year old and she has not been on many "vacays" and never for so long. She was timid and anxious, but Devin took good care of her. He sent us a few photos and let us know how she was doing. We will definitely book with Devin again.

Devin watched our two dogs, one very small, couch sitting, shizu-poodle mix, and one very active terrier mix. They both came home happy and healthy. During our meet and greet you could tell that Devin has an in depth knowledge of different dog types and behaviors. He was very (and I mean very) accommodating on pick up and drop off times. He answered emails and text message almost instantly. I would not hesitate to use Devin in the future.

Devin watched our dogs while we were out of town for a long weekend. He has rooms set aside for dogs to stay and that is great because my dogs don't use kennels. Thanks!
My 13 week old American Bulldog, Skeeter went to daycare at Devin's and had a BLAST! He was loving every boy playing with the other dogs there. When we got home, Skeeter was exhausted! We will definitely be returning!
Devin did a great job with my dog and was very accommodating to the pick up and drop off times. He was very welcoming and my dog had a great time there.
This was the first time for out pups to be cared for outside of family and feel lke our pups enjoyed their stay. We will definitely use Devin again.
Devin did a fantastic job making sure Thor was comfortable and felt welcomed. He was very reasonably priced and kept me updated with texts and pics of Thor having fun. Overall it was a wonderful experience for Thor and Highly recommend Devin. I gave Devin 4 stars instead of 5 due to the fact that Thor was unfortunately hit with a bad case of fleas there. It was not Devin's fault. Another client brought their dog into his home and infested all the other dogs while in their care. I was more upset that he didn't tell me and my wife about the situation that had incurred the day before returning until we were putting Thir in the car to head home. This quickly turned our already long day into a massive pain, which I feel could have been avoided by a simple heads up the night before. He did give Thir a flea bath the night before we picked him up. With that being said I thought the genuine care and attention he showed to Thor out weighed the negative flea experience. Would still recommend Devin and will use him again.

My dogs had a marvelous time! Devin was really tuned into their needs and interpreted right on target what made them more comfortable. He turned on the TV for them when he noticed they were uneasy and that is what I do when I have to leave them alone for a few hours, but I had never told him that. So I was very pleased he just seemed to get them. And when I came to pick them up they weren't even that excited to see me because they were content. I will be asking for Devin's help again for sure in the future. Thank you Devin for the great care!

Great guy, great care. Will be coming back for sure.
This was our first time to leave our dog Ginger with Devin. We had a meet and greet that went very well and we felt very comfortable leaving Ginger with him. She was a happy girl when picked up and we will definitely leave her with Devin again.
Denin was great! He took wonderful care of our dog Bane. We will definitely use him again!
My husband had to go to HI on business and I tagged along. We had just moved to the area so we didn't know anyone and I really didn't want to put our two pugs in a kennel. When I came across this website I thought this had to be to good to be true. Well, it is awesome, Devin is fantastic. When I contacted him he was quick to reply. When we met for the first time he picked a neutral place near his home. He brought his beautiful well behaved dog Toki with him. I was a little worried because our male pug seems to have a little leash aggression. Well there were no issues, everything went well. Devins and Toki's calm demeanor helped keep my dogs calm and we had a good meet and greet. While Oliver and Lily were in his care he sent me updates and pictures every day. We will be booking with him again.

Devin was awesome to work with! We had a meet-and-greet prior, easy to schedule this as well as our trip. He was most accommodating. Our dog is usually a bit shaken up when we pick her up somewhere strange, but she was at ease when we picked her up with Devin. We will definitely be return customers, and refer to our friends & family. Thank you Devin!

Took good care sent nice pictures.
Devin is a super nice guy and a true dog lover. Smokie had a great time and was well cared for during his stay. Thank you Devin!
Devin did an outstanding job with our two dogs. This was the first time in eight years anyone besides family has watched them and they liked him right from the start. I would recommend Devin highly and will use him again.
Devin always does a great job. My pups are happy there!
Devin took care of our three pups for one week. We had just moved into the area, and had no idea where to put our dachshund/mix pups. One of them can be a cranky old man, and is not always friendly with other dogs. Devin took the time to meet with us beforehand, even bringing his dog along. My daughter's and I were happy with Devin's calm demeanor when introducing our pups to his, especially with regards to our cranky guy.
Devin was great about sending us a pic or two every day. He also sent text messages every other day as well. We will definitely book Devin again.

Devin took GREAT care of my two 7 month old boxer puppies. One day prior, they were both neutered and have cones around there heads. He went above and beyond to make my puppies as comfortable as possible. Answered every message I've sent in minutes before, during, and after the visit. Will be using his service again without a doubt

We left our dog with Devin for five days and everything worked out perfectly. Devin was very flexible with drop-off and pickup times. Our dog seemed very happy and well taken care of when we picked him up. I will definitely be using Devin again!
Devin keeps our dog safe and happy in a clean environment. Our older dog has developed medical issues and we are confident when leaving her in Devin's care that she will get her required doses carefully administered.
Devin was extremely nice, and friendly and seemed to really love his job as a dog sitter. BUT, after I picked up both of my dogs, they were both extremely sick (diarrhea, salivating, unresponsive, gagging) etc and they were 100% healthy before I dropped them off. I rushed them to the vet in the morning and the vet found rubber bands and stuffing after they induced vomiting. I am extremely disappointed especially because Devin has such good reviews. I will NEVER take my dogs back here. On a more positive note, DogVacay has been working with me to reimburse me for the expensive vet bills. I would absolutely use DogVacay again but will never use Devin again.

Devin is the best.Buck was very comfortable with him and he was very well taken care of .I would recommend Devin to anyone looking to take care of their pets
Devin is great! Looking forward to comfortably leaving my baby with him again. So nice to not have to worry. Just picked up my dog after a week-long stay and while I would have enjoyed a few more pictures, have no complaints. He is responsive and professional, and I've never seen my dog take to anyone so quickly. Already have another visit on the books!

Devin is awesome! Very accommodating and treats my pups well. I would definitely recommend him!
King had fun being here and would definitely do it again
I appreciated how flexible Devin was in coordinating pick-up and drop-off times. He has a calm and reassuring energy with dogs that made my dog feel at home.Thank you!
Devin did a great job taking care of our 2 older dogs. They seemed really content at his house. We will use him again.
Devin was awesome! He took such good care of my puppy, and made sure to send me pictures and updates while I was away. I will have him watch Cooper every time I need a pet sitter.
Devin has given us the opportunity to visit family out of state without feeling depressed leaving our loved dog behind. We have had family watch her in the past and worried about her getting attention, fed, walked etc. Getting the pictures from Devin, and seeing her relaxed and happy was a blessing. It also gives her play time with other dogs. We will continue to use Devin, and will now travel to visit relatives out of town for short visits.

I was looking for a great place to entrust my 14 year-old Aussie and my 4 year-old Mixed breed when I found Devin. I am acclimating them in preparation for a long-term stay, and they seem to be doing fine. The younger guy loves it, and the old fellow is doing okay. Devin is great with him, he's just anxious when I'not around. I think he will become less worried as he realizes I always come back. : )

Thanks Devin for taking care of Marlee :)
Devin was great with little Levi. He was very courteous, kind, and sweet with the pups. Devin sent update pictures of Levi having a great time, playing with other cute pups that were staying with him. He has a nice small yard space for dogs to play and a friendly neighborhood for walks. Definitely recommend!

Devin was a fantastic fur-babysitter! He was super friendly and took the time to get to know a little about my dogs before taking them. When I arrived to drop them both off he had a couple other dogs at the house, which he sectioned off so he could introduce them all one at a time. This is the right way to introduce dogs to each other so I was immediately reassured he knew what he was doing. My dog Loki is pretty easy going and gets along with everyone, but my other dog Thor takes some time to warm up to other dogs. He ended up playing with another puppy there and I was amazed he got along so well! I received pictures throughout the stay and both pups looked happy and pooped from all the playtime. Upon pick up both dogs were happy and took a huge nap when we got home. Devin is fantastic and I will definitely be using him as my regular dog-sitter from now on!

Devin was great with Bella. He responded fast and was willing to take her on short notice. He was quick to respond when I messaged to check on her as well. Would definitely book again.
She had a great time. My lazy pup who usually "can't" get out of the truck hopped right out once she knew where we were!
This was the first time I had left our dog, Peyton, with anyone since he's super shy and doesn't really like other people. Devin agreed to meet with Peyton first to make sure he would be comfortable with him and was an instant friend. We will definitely use Devin again anytime we need a dog sitter.

Devin did an excellent job watching my two dogs. Devin was flexible with drop off and pick up times which is great fir my job schedule. Both my dogs had a fantastic time. I look forward to boarding my dogs with Devin in the future!
Devin was great to work with! He responded almost instantly, provided updates on my pup, and sent photos. My puppy thoroughly enjoyed his weekend stay and was exhausted from playing! Highly recommend.
Louie stayed with Devin for a day and came home exhausted from all the play time with the other dogs. I would recommend the website and Devin to other dog owners.
I only gave 4 stars because Devin forgot the drop-off time and was surprised when we arrived. This was the first time we used DogVacay, so that made me a little nervous. HOWEVER, he took great care of our dog, was flexible, and was available via the app, so it wasn't a big deal. Thanks, Devin!

Cooper had a fabulous time with Devin! Highly recommend!
Pearl was more than tired after a days worth of activity ! She fell asleep in car by the time Kim pulled out of Devin's driveway.... Grateful that Devin has flexible hours ! Will take Pearlto Devin's whenever need arises or when she get bored with me !!
Thanks Devin....

Jazzy seemed to enjoy her stay with Devin. She was relaxed and content at pick up. This meant that she had her needs addressed and didn't need to rouse the troops to get something. I loved the ease and peace of mind this experience offered myself!!
Pepper stayed with Devin for 8 days and she came home happy and healthy. I also got update emails every couple days or so. Wasn't as many as I thought we agreed on but it was still good.
Devin was great. Our dog Zoey is a staffshire/pit rescue that we have only had for 2 months. Devin was great taking care of them.
I went snowboarding with my husband for a day and needed someone to take care of my 15 lbs Dog. Devin is very accommodating. This is the 2nd time that he has taken care of Marlee and my dog really enjoyed it! Will definitely recommend him and use him as my regular dog sitter!

Devin was great, he responded immediately to every message and was an outstanding sitter. Clementine was not anxious or stressed at all when we brought her home, so I'm certain she had a good vacay, he even gave her a Christmas present! We will definitely book with Devin again. Thanks for everything!

At the last minute we needed to add a day to another reservation. Devin was very accomidating and quick with his reply.
Devin watched our dog for 9 days over the holidays and did a fantastic job. He is very quick to respond to requests and messages. He has a very calm demeanor and really understands dogs. I would highly recommend him to watch your dog.
Devin was wonderful!

He accommodated our 9 week old puppy (needing extra TLC due to very small size and young age) with absolutely no hesitation! He kept her safely separated from the other dogs and dealt with any/all annoying puppy antics and behaviors with no concern or complaint.

Devin is extremely quick to respond to texts and checks in on pick-up & drop off time to ensure he's ready for your dog's arrival/departure. Very friendly, responsible and caring! It's obvious he loves dogs and takes the utmost care making sure they have a great dog vacay!

Devin was phenomenal. I have 2 dogs that have never been away from family or around other dogs outside of family. When I picked up my pups, they were full of life and enjoyed themselves immensely. My boxer is a very needy dog when it comes to affection and he received it from Devin. Just want to thank you Devin for taking care of my pups.

Devin did a good job taking care of my pup! My puppy went home happy. He had a great time playing with the other dogs too. Will definitely consider him again to take care of Marlee.
Devin was great to work with, and even helped out when my travel plans changed.
Devin was great to work with, and even helped out when my travel plans changed.
I contacted Devin last minute for him to watch our two pups while we were out of town for a few days. Very prompt communication and seemed to be more than comfortable with our two medium/large dogs. One of our pups didn't even want to leave! Definitely would have Devin watch our dogs again in the future should we need it.
