About Patrick

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home so I am here almost 100% of the time. Large home with large shaded enclosed fence yard. Plenty of inside and outside space. Next door to a public park with walking trails. I will walk dogs that stay at my home, most days at no charge.
I grew up on a farm of almost 200 animals, have been taking care of dogs my whole life. I am very gentle and dogs get attached to me quickly.
I have a calm personality that I find is soothing to pets. I have 4 kids that are here only at weekends.
During the week, I am the only person in this large 4000 s.f. home. Yard is very large and shaded. Your dog will be given lots of attention. My yard is very well shaded but I will respect your wishes regarding how much time you like indoors/outdoors.

He is the best dog sitter i have seen. My puppy had great time there!!
Patrick was great! Our girl Riley really liked him and had a lot of fun. I received many pictures from him over the weekend to see how she was doing. I would definitely would use Patrick again when we go on vacation again.
My two doggies had a great stay with Patrick. They seemed to enjoy hanging out in the playground. I received lots of pictures and updates during their stay. Patrick was very nice and very easy to deal with. I highly recommend!
I highly recommend Patrick. Pennzy stayed with Patrick for a week. I received daily messages and pictures of our dog. Pennzy had a good time with the family and I think made new dog friends.
We highly recommend Patrick! Our dog stayed with Patrick for 11 days and we received daily messages and pictures of our dog. Patrick is very kind and compassionate. We will certainly contact Patrick again for future dog sitting services.
Patrick is wonderful with our dogs.
Patrick was an amazing host! He provided photos of our furbaby daily to ensure that she was doing well. He has an awesome setup in his backyard that the dogs absolutely LOVE. We will definitely be using his services again, our Bailey came home a very happy gal!
Patrick is the best. He communicates regularly sending messages and pictures. I would definitely recommend him!
Our dog Milo had a great time with Patrick.
Great experience. Great host.
Patrick is just the sort of man you'd want watching your dog--a kind and gentle person who you can just tell adores dogs. I'd definitely recommend him.
You know your dogs had a good stay with someone when they come home exhausted from all the playing and attention. I'll be using Patrick a lot more in the near future.
We were very trepidatious about leaving out little boy, but after our meet & greet with Patrick, I wasn't worried. His backyard is huge and Henry immediately expressed his approval. We loved the updates and pictures that Patrick sent and Henry was totally relaxed and just happy to see us when we got him. We will book with Patrick again!
Patrick was excellent and I would highly recommend him to watch your dog. Riley did well and enjoyed her stay with Patrick. He kept me updated daily with photos and gave me peace of mind that Riley was safe. We will definitely be back. Thanks Patrick.
Patrick is awesome! I'm very particular about who I have watch my dog because she can be a bit of a handful. She's super playful and energetic and 70lbs of pretty much pure muscle, so not a lot of people can handle her. I've had a lot of negative experiences with other pet sitters and even professional dog boarding facilities, but I've left Darcy with Patrick multiple times now and have had nothing but good experiences. She always comes back worn out and I can tell from the pictures that she is having a great time. I would definitely recommend Patrick! :)
Boomer always come back from Patrick's happy and worn out from the play and attention.
Another great visit with Patrick. Luna had so much fun and I got lots of daily pics. She was pooped for days afterwards. Thanks Patrick!
Patrick was an excellent host. He has a big house with huge backyard in a nice neighborhood. He took plenty of pictures and kept in communication with us the whole time he was watching Dexter, our extremely energetic 3 year old Weimaraner.
Dropped off my bulldog for the weekend and she loved it! Patrick has a large backyard and sends you tons of daily photos.
Murphy loves going to stay at Patrick's home. He gets to play all day with other dogs and comes home happy and exhausted. Murphy has stayed with Patrick several times and will hopefully stay with him in the future. Thanks Patrick!
Patrick is amazing! I know my dog is excited to go spend the day with him and he is so accommodating to my work schedule-thank you sooooo much!
Patrick was fast to reply back and I only had a day or two advance notice so it was really great to find him. Great big house and huge yard. Reina started exploring immediately when I dropped her off. She seemed well taken care of. Thanks Patrick!
Patrick was amazing! He was so easy to get ahold of. He updated us throughout our fur baby's entire stay! Tex loved being able to run and play in Patrick's big backyard. We will definitely be using Patrick the next time we're going out of town! I would highly recommend him to any and everyone!
We are so very thankful for Patrick! Our lab Charlie was in heaven as soon as she arrived to Patrick's home. He and his crew kept high energy Charlie entertained the whole time and were so very giving! We loved the daily pics Patrick sent and Charlie was happily exhausted when we got her back home. Thank you for being so flexible and caring Patrick! We would definitely bring Charlie back again!
The pups had a great time! Highly recommended.
Patrick is a wonderful host. Luna had a great time and came home exhausted. I loved the photos he sent me during her stay. I will definitely be a repeat customer.
Patrick took incredible care of our pup, Jackson! He was very kind to send pictures and updates daily, which we really appreciated! Patrick and his family wore Jackson out by playing fetch and chase, his favorite activities. Jackson slept for two days straight after we picked him up! Patrick was super responsive and attentive, and we will certainly book again with him!
Patrick was a wonderful host. Our puppy was a little shy in the beginning but he was patient and caring with her. As pet owners is it always scary to leave your fur baby. We had a meet and great with Patrick and he put us at ease. He is very thoughtful about the needs of you and your fur baby. :) When we were gone he sent us many pictures of our baby so we knew she was doing well and having a great time. I will definitely use Patrick again.
Patrick is great! We have used him several times. Daisy comes home happy and is excited to go back over.
Patrick accepted our request very last-minute, was extremely kind, and sent us daily updates with photos! Very highly recommended!
Patrick was very accommodating on a last minute notice. He had several other dogs over but said he could still watch our dogs. Our girls were nice and tired by the time we picked them up!
We are so glad we found out about DogVacay and met Patrick. Cin and Ten felt right at home and the weekend turned out perfectly. Thank you Patrick!
