About Dirk

I have one very sweet and playful boxer/hound mix (Bruce). Very socialized and spoiled. Plays well with any size and breed.
With the knowledge that your dog will be happy and safe, you can relax and enjoy you vacation. I have a large home and backyard. I walk Bruce twice a day and play with him often. Your dog will receive the same level of attention and care.
I bring Bruce inside nightly. Your dog is welcome to sleep wherever they are used to sleeping! I take multiple pictures and have several cameras you can view anytime.
I pickup and drop off for your convenience as well.

We were so pleased at how Dirk cared for, played with, and kept us updated. We will definitely book with Dirk again!
This was our first experience with leaving our dogs with anyone they don't know and I was so pleased with the daily updates and pictures to put my mind at ease. My dog loves to play and it was great to see her interacting well with other dogs. Dirk wasn't hesitant to watch our pit bull even though she's far from aggressive and that inspired confidence. I would definitely take them back.
Dirk was nice & seemed to be accommodating for my pup, Lincoln. A couple of things irked me about Lincoln's stay. The second day I dropped Lincoln off Dirk let me know he didn't have time for talking Lincoln for a walk. This kind of defeats the purpose of stating you can care for a puppy. Additionally when I picked up Lincoln I think he had been created for a good portion of the day. This was another red flag for me. I know Dirk had stuff going on and was busy but I still think he should have given me a heads up if he didn't have time to second with Lincoln.
All I can say is my stormy was happy and enjoying her self and when I needed an extension he worked with me great place to take your puppies
My dog, Zoey is 55 lbs., 16 years old and deaf which can be challenging. Dirk cared for her very well and I won't hesitate to use his services again. Dirk has a lovely large home (plenty of room for doggie wondering) and a large fenced and grassy yard with a doggie door. He is very educated in pet care and needs. Love the daily text messages and photos.
Dirk was a great sitter for Bella. She came back tired and happy! She got along great with the other dogs and loved Dirks company. Will definitely book with Dirk for our next trip.
Our beagle had a terrific time and came home exhausted from playing with Dirk's dog Bruce. We felt comfortable leaving our dog there for several days knowing he was being well cared for and appreciated the daily photos!
Dirk was great, he worked with my crazy schedule with work and flights. I know my pup had a lot of fun playing with his dog, Bruce, and came back happy and well exercised. I'm a first time dog owner and Dirk noticed my dog was getting skinny, and adjusted the food, and gave me some helpful advice. Overall I would definitely have Dirk watch my dog again. He sent probably at least a picture a day and it was fun to see how my dog was doing!
Dirk is great
great. Our dog had a great time, great pictures, etc
Dirk was wonderful about keeping us informed of our pets daily activities. We received photos and updates regularly. Our dog is high energy and Dirk found lots of extra time for him to run and play. Our dog had a great time and we will definitely use Dirk again.
Dirk and Bruce were fantastic. Dirk was quick and responsive. My wife and I loved the photo and video updates of our dog playing with Bruce. Our dog looked happy and we can tell she was loved and taken care of very well. We will book Dirk again for our next DogVacay.
Ryley was extremely happy staying with Dirk. I most appreciated the opportunity to have a meet and greet first which dissolved any anxiety the dog and I had. She had ample opportunity to spend outside playing with other dogs and received plenty of attention during her stay. Ryley and I are both looking forward to my next out of town trip!
Dirk was really awesome with our dogs... He sent us a lot of pictures the whole time we were away and our dogs came back happy and smiling from the trip to his house. We would definitely use Dirk again!
Dirk was awesome with my Great Dane!
