About Dave/Heather

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your pet is my priority! As a retired logistics manager and former 12-year Navy medic, I understand how important it is to give your much-loved pet the individual experience it needs. I am a lifelong lover of dogs, keeper of schedules and manager of fun for your pooch.

I offer daycare and overnight boarding in our South Minneapolis home. I share my home with my wife Heather and our two Labs, Muddy and Houston. We have both owned rescue dogs, and are experienced with all sizes of dogs including larger dogs. We have a large fully privacy-fenced-in backyard, and your dog will have full reign of the house and backyard. We only accept two dogs at a time in our home, so your dog is assured my full attention for the duration of their stay.

Sorry no pets under 1 year of age.

Accommodations
- Lots of love and attention from Doc & Heather
- Dogs will never be left unattended
- If you allow, access and cuddling on furniture
- Medication administration, if necessary
- Play time, nap time, one-on-one time

*We are less than 6 miles away from the airport, and we will accommodate off-hour drop-offs and pick-ups.

*For the safety of your dog(s) and ours, please make sure your dog is up-to-date on all of their shots.

Set up a free Meet-n-Greet – I’m looking forward to meeting your beloved pet.

Please Note!

Our overnight boarding charge covers a 24 hour period, our checkout time is 1 pm, as we do not get paid for the day the dog checks out. We are more than happy to arrange a later pick up time to accommodate your travel needs, but for pickups after 1pm a $10 charge every 4 hours up to $20.00 for daycare will be added.

Thank you Dave and Heather for taking such good care of our Otto. We received frequent updates and photos Otto, throughout his stay. Dave was very responsive to messages and any questions we had! We will definitely be using Dave and Heather in the future.

We were so lucky to have found Dave and Heather to help us out with Lil' Gizmo. We planned a two week vacation and really needed a daycare that could be flexible with drop and pickup times. Giz also has a kind of an odd personality but seemed to do very well. We really appreciated the daily photos!

Heather and Dave are a huge support with my rescue dog. Their two Labradors are the cutest and a nice and calm company. Thank you for taking excellent care of Josee!
Doc and Heather took great care of my dog and made her feel right at home. I will definitely use them in the future!
My pup had a great experience staying with Doc and Heather! I have a small 12 pound dog that I am always nervous leaving with strangers. This was only my second time using DogVacay and I was very pleased. Doc and Heather were very responsive and friendly. When we went for our meet and greet it was obvious they were very attentive and cared for all dogs. I was nervous how my small dog would deal with their larger dogs, but Doc and Heather made sure my pup was not crowded and could explore the house, yard and other dogs on her own time. Shortly after I dropped my dog off for her stay, I received a picture message showing my dog had made herself at home and was comfortable. I also received multiple pictures and updates including how her feeding and night went. Needless to say, my pup returned happy and tired and we hope to stay with Doc and Heather again in the near future!

O'Malley seemed to have had a great time with Doc, Heather and their dogs!
Dave/Doc and Heather were great. This was our first time using Dogvacay after deciding not to use our previous dog sitter and Doc was SO easy to reach ahead of time with any questions, concerns or just general dogsitting arrangements. Most importantly, he was fanastic with our big, needy, 1yo dog, sending reassuring pics to us periodically so we could see how he was doing. It's not surprising their calendar tends to fill up, I would definitely recommend them.

Dave and Heather and their two dogs invited Lincoln and Luci into their home and were incredible hosts. They thoroughly planned accommodations to make sure our dogs preferences were met and that they had a fun staycation in their home. I was only worried that they wouldn't want to come back home with me! I would absolutely use them again!

Doc and Heather are both very nice and were easy to work with. They treat your dog as if it was their own. Their dogs Huston and muddy were so sweet and gentle with our tiny 13 pound fur child! I highly recommend Doc and Heather and plan to utilize their services again.

Our dog, Boone had a GREAT time staying at Doc and Heathers! They kept us updated daily with pictures and Boone was completely loved and cared for during his stay. What a great piece of mind to know that he has a home away from home when he stays with Doc and Heather. We've already booked him to stay when we go away for a weekend in a couple weeks. Thanks Doc and Heather!!

Dave & Heather were fantastic! They respond quickly to requests and were flexible with us when we changed the drop off time. Our dog had a great time and it was easy to see that they took great care of her. Heather even noticed, and informed us, that our dog had something going on with her ear. We had regular pictures and updates and have already booked them again! Thank you both so much!
