About Langdon

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Simply put, I love dogs! I have two of my own (Wally and Riley).
I have been watching dogs for over 10 years, both dog sitting and boarding dogs in my home..
My dogs have a variety of activities. We frequent the dog park, go on morning walks to the coffee shop, hit the beach in the summer as well as mountain bike and hike. In the Winter we ski.
I've found that having a small pack of calm dogs helps other dogs gently transition into our routine. Even problematic dogs have had positive experiences while in my care.
My work schedule is perfectly suited for dog care. I work in a restaurant. After a day of activities, as your pup is winding down, I am headed to work for only 4-5 hours and my roommate is home while I am at work. So your dog will get lots of attention.
I do have a 19 month old daughter and she is super sweet with dogs. Riley is her best friend. They often take naps together and they play together all day. If your dog is skittish around children I can only watch your dog Thursday through Sunday as my daughter will be with her mother.
I look forward to taking care of your canine companion. Please message with any questions.

I originally booked a 10 day stay for Arya on very short notice (less than 1 day) and Langdon was super accommodating, gave me a call within a few minutes of booking to work out the logistics of the stay.

When I dropped Arya off, I got a chance to meet Langdon's two dogs and they are both big cuties. Meeting two friendly, well-socialized pets was very reassuring and it seemed like a great environment for Arya to make some new friends.

During the stay, Langdon was very attentive to Arya's needs. He sent us frequent updates along with pictures of Arya during their walks. He was also very good about working with Arya when she wasn't behaving normally. Apparently, Arya gets skittish around little kids and when Langdon introduced his young daughter, Arya didn't know how to respond. Langdon was able to slowly acclimate Arya to the change without stressing her out.

Our trip was actually cut short by a few days so I ended up picking up Arya early. Again, Langdon was very accommodating and had Arya ready to go when we swung by to pick her up. After we got home, Arya napped for 4-5 hours straight. She's a super energetic dog and only naps when she's completely tuckered out, so I know she had a great time playing at Langdon's :).

Overall, it was a great trip, I wouldn't hesitate to leave Arya in Langdon's care again in the future!
So glad we have found Langdon! Our dogs have stayed with him a couple of times now, and they are well-cared for. He sends regular updates and pictures. He often has 1-2 other furry guests, so it is a great social opportunity for my two guys as well. Langdon is now our "go-to" sitter : )
Langdon took very good care of my standard poodle. My dog is getting a little older and we were gone for more than one week, so he needed some additional attention and love. I think Langdon takes care to combine the right mix of older and younger dogs to provide a good environment for all.
This was the first time I've left Harley for longer than two nights and the first time I've ever left him with someone not close to both of us. I was pretty stressed out about it, to put it mildly.

I booked Langdon based on positive reviews and can now add my own. He put me at ease from the moment we met him. On my trip, Langdon texted me regularly with pictures and updates. It helped a lot. Harley had a great vacation, with lots of time to explore the backyard and lots of walks. By the end of the trip, he'd abandoned his bed-blanket from home in favor of sleeping in the hallway outside of Langdon's bedroom where he could keep an eye on his new friend.

Being able to leave Harley in a caring, trustworthy home in Portland honestly opens up a whole new world to me travel-wise, and I look forward to taking more trips for work and play. I will of course be leaving him again with Langdon.
Langdon is exceptional. He adores dogs, and it shows. He and his 2 dogs, Riley & Wally, made my Fezzik part of their pack. And during Fezzik's stay, a couple of other dogs came and went; Langdon says they all played together really well. Fezzik enjoyed daily walks, backyard playtime with his new friends, and trips to the dog park for endless games of fetch (he's a bit ball-obsessed). Langdon regularly sent pictures (great action shots!), and kept me up to date on Fezzik's stay. I can't recommend Landgon enough, and we will definitely be back.
Langdon was great to work with and an excellent dog sitter. He helped us out when our original sitter cancelled 24 hours before a holiday vacation. When no one else would make room Langdon came through. He took excellent care of Hank and made sure he was well excercised and comfortable in his home. It is obvious that Langdon has experience caring for animals. I would highly recommend having you pet stay at his home.
Langdon was fantastic! Took great care of our weenie dog, but I was afraid that he wouldn't want to come home afterward! Will definitely be using Langdon again.
Langdon took great care of our 4 1/2 mo. old, full of energy, puppy! We received updates and pictures regularly of Rusty having a playful time. Keeping up with Rusty is not a small challenge and Langdon seemed to be very patient and mindful of all Rusty's needs. It put our mind at ease while we were on vacation to know that Rusty was in good hands. I would recommend Landgon and Rusty will be back!
My two dogs had a great time with Langdon this past week! We got lots of text and Photo updates, and he was super flexible with pick up and drop off arrangements. They got lots of attention and exercise. We are already booked for next month!
Langdon is the best, he gave extra care to our insecure Boston terrier. Both of our dogs had a great time and we always knew how they're doing as we received many pictures of them during our trip abroad! I actually think our dog misses Langdon and his two great, very calm dogs :)
Booker is a newly acquired rescue and is still fearful of adults if not approached in just the right way. Langdon was perfect with him, Booker was more comfortable more quickly than I'd ever have expected. Langdon is also really responsive to all messages and he recommended a killer coffee shop. Thanks Langdon!
Langdon is great! He loves dogs and our boy Hank loved him. He is very accommodating and everything was easy and convenient.
My little Lhasa Apso who is almost 14 had the best time with Langdon and all the other dogs they own and other dog friends on Vacay. I had Langdon come and pick Buddy up at my home . HE WAS ON TIME, LOVING, ATTENTIVE N SUPER COMPASSIONATE. I received great pics of my doggie daily, which made me sooo happy. There home was safe, super dog friendly and we'll thought out to benefit the dogs. There little girl had a blast with all shapes, ages n sizes of dogs. My little Senior dog got to even stay in bed overnight with Langdon because that's what he was used to. This melted my heart. I can't say enough about Langdon and the dog care my dog Buddy received. I give him a 10 out of 10. You will be blessed and reassured that your dog is in amazing care.
Langdon was outstanding and my dog had a blast at his home. Corgi puppies are no easy task but he approached it with clear expertise and insight to share. Will definitely use him again.
Ruby clearly had a GREAT time with Langdon. He sent us pics all weekend of her having adventures with the other dogs, playing in the kiddie pool, and going on walks. She came home relaxed and happy, which is not always the case when you board your pup!

We will absolutely book with Langdon again.
Monty had such a great time with Langdon! Incredibly experienced with dogs, two great dogs of his own, and lots of quality play time including a trip to the dog park. Langdon sent lots of great picture updates and was really flexible with pickup and drop off timing. Thank you again Langdon, would definitely recommend for a great Dogvacay option in Portland!

-Kerry, Rob & Monty
My dog loves spending time at Langdon's and he takes great care of her.
Langdon was a great sitter. He kept me informed about how my girls were doing every day and sent along pictures which I found reassuring. They came home tired and happy. Thank you Langdon!
I ended up not using Landon since our schedules couldn't match but he was very kind and accommodating during the scheduling process. If I need a sitter again I will certainly give him a try
Thanks Langdon for Cofy's great time at your place! Since she is a very young puppy and not socialized enough, I was worried about her behavior towards other dogs & her neediness what with 4th of july being a busy weekend for every sitter. But she is much more assured and calmer puppy now. I was able to accommodate all my time needs with langdon easy communication. I was a worry free mom while Cofy was with Langdon!
Very friendly and accommodating!
We highly recommend Langdon! He cared for our dog so well and was great at communicating with us.We will absolutely use his service again!!
This was Tesla's second time at Langdon's and it was like she was at home. She got lots of walks and a lot of backyard play time. Langdon treats her like family!
This was Tesla's first time at Langdon's and she loved it. She's a boxer so she has a lot of energy and Langdon made sure she had multiple walks a day. We will definitely bring her back!
This was our first time using DogVacay - we love the concept! Our Maltese/Poodle Gus is a bit on the insecure side, so we wanted to choose carefully for our quick trip to Portland. Langdon accepted our request, though it was a bit last minute, and he was a great communicator before and during Gus's stay. He has just the calm energy Gus needs, and helped him relax and get through a bit of separation anxiety. He suggested we go for a short walk together prior to my departure for the day, and gave a clear and full report when we picked up Gus. Langdon clearly knows about dogs' behavior and needs. We're really grateful to him for having Gus for the day and will use him when in Portland and in need of dog care.
Langdon was a great host for my pup over a long weekend. My dog loves being around people and a pack of other dogs, and he got plenty of attention and exercise while I was away. Langdon sent several photos and updates that were very appreciated, and he was also great about bringing my dog along to the coffee shop and taking him on multiple walks each day. It was very easy to schedule pick up and drop offs, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Langdon as a sitter for other dog owners.
Langdon was wonderful! He was extremely flexible as our exact situation kept fluctuating slightly and kept great and prompt communication throughout. We were a little worried as to how our rather high strung dog would do around other dogs for an extended period, but Langdon and his household were so calm and consistent that our little guy did great. Thank you so much for taking care of Enzo over the holidays! We will definitely contact again!
Langdon did a fantastic job with our old boy. It looks like our dog forgot to miss us until we showed up to take him home. I think he misses having the other dogs now that he's back home.
Langdon was amazing with our old lab. It was obvious our boy didn't miss too much ehile he was with Langdon
An amazing host. He took a last minute request for our old boy who recently started having special needs. Langdon provided regular updates and photos so that we didn't worry nearly as much while we were out of town. Highly recommend his services
Langdon was awesome, he accepeted a last minute request, called us and asked good question about the dog and comforted us in using his services and DogVacay (first time for iwok).

He sent us several photos of our corgi per day, and kept us up to date on how he was doing. Iwok was super happy when we got him back, Langdon even trimmed iwok's nails!

Thanks Langdon! I will definitely use your services again!
Langdon was great - clearly a dog lover, very flexible with pick up and drop off and good communication throughout the stay. My dog Molly and he really bonded. I'll definitely leave her with Langdon again if I need a sitter. Thanks again!
Langdon took great care of our highly energetic black lab. He was really thoughtful about whether and how she'd integrate into his "pack" -- his two dogs at home and some other dogs visiting. She got way more walks than at home, a crate to chill out in when needed, and lots of love. Thanks Langdon! We'll definitely be back.
This was our second time leaving our pup with Langdon and when we dropped her off she was so excited to see him. It really was priceless leaving our dog knowing she was happy and excited to be there. Langdon has two other dogs , a yard, is close to dog parks and it really is a vacay for her staying with him. We'll be repeat customers always!
Langdon was very professional and quickly responded to our request a day before we needed him! He answered all our questions and put any concerns I had to rest during our meet and greet! We're new to the area and have been experimenting with kennels and I felt a million times better leaving our pup in Langdons care. Daily trips to the dog park and lots of picture updates allowed me to enjoy our own trip so much more! We'll definitely be back and are very thankful to have found Langdon!
We have continued to use Langdon for the past 2+ years and couldn't be happier! He took a brief hiatus from dogvacay for personal reasons but we are happy he is back in action as he is always our first choice! He seamlessly handles our 2 crazy lab/mix dogs. We admit, they both have reactive issues and he makes it look easy. Langdon is always easy to coordinate with and flexible. Rest easy that your pups will be well taken care of.
Our pups have now had many stays with Langdon and we couldn't be happier! He has boarded them and he has housesat in our home and both have worked out wonderfully. It allows us to travel without worries. We have very energetic young dogs and his calm demeanor puts them at ease. Where as other people seemed overwhelmed by their energy he enjoys their company and is clearly one of those people that is naturally good with dogs! I am talking "dog whisper" style where you don't recognize your dogs when they are with him :) He is flexible and easy to communicate with. He spends the extra time to continue to work on training with our pups and gives us updates on how they are doing when we are traveling. I would definitely recommend Langdon without a second thought.
Our dog enjoyed another wonderful weekend with Langdon who kindly picked her up and dropped her off to accommodate our travel plans. We will be a repeat customer as long as Langdon is available and willing.
Since Gabby is a young energetic Lab, we are pleased to have found Langdon. He is truly a dog conversationalist. At the meet-and-greet, he took Gabby for a walk with us and his other dogs while asking pertinent questions to make sure that Gabby would get along with him and his dogs. She got along very well and even happily shared a bed with one of his dogs. Since he works evenings, Langdon had time during the day to wear Gabby out by taking her for daily walks and ball-throwing sessions at a nearby dog park. We have no qualms about boarding Gabby with Langdon again.
Langdon is awesome! Bozley had a great time with Langdon and his boys while I was gone, and it was a great comfort to know he was well cared for. I got picture and text updates, and Langdon was super flexible with drop-off and pick-up times. He definitely gives a specialized experience for each dog and their individual needs. I already have another reservation with Langdon and will absolutely use him in the future!
I had complete confidence in Langdon from the first meet & greet, which went very smoothly. He took time to get to know my dog, Amber, and listen to me. Langdon’s other dogs are calm and well-behaved, making the transition to that pack very easy. Amber enjoyed lots of walks and off-leash social activity, and I enjoyed the many photos posted to dogvacay to ease my mind. Although Amber never went on any backwoods adventures with Langdon, she had other worthwhile new experiences instead – MUCH more than she would have received in my favorite boarding facility. Amber returned to me happy and tired – a winning combination! The feedback Langdon provided was also helpful. I highly recommend Langdon for your dog’s home away from home.
