About William

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Been hosting with DogVacay since November 2012.

Conveniently located just off I-17 (between Camelback & Bethany Home).
I offer overnight dog care in my home at $40.00 per night.
Do you have multiple dogs? Additional dogs are only $20.00 per night per dog (Holiday Weekends Excluded). Discounts are also available for extended stays of 8 days or longer.

I am the owner of 1 pug (8 yrs) named Cisco.

I have never been comfortable leaving my dogs in kennels. If I go away on vacation I do not want my friends to go to jail while I am having fun. Dogs deserve a fun vacation too!

Your four legged family member will have a blast playing with my dogs in the house and blocked fenced back yard. Our home is a crate free zone!

I live in a 2 bedroom (with den) Townhome with a private Blocked fence back yard. It's on a quiet private dead end street (Cul-de-sac) with very little traffic.

Walking dogs and pet sitting has been something I've been doing for several years now, and it is something I personally enjoy very much. It would be my pleasure to provide several references if that is something that makes you more comfortable (and rightly so).

Daycare is available for $28 per day. Drop off times for Daycare are anytime between 6:00 & 7:30 am and pick up anytime between 5:00pm - 7:00pm.

William was awesome. He sent me lots of pictures and took great care of my dogs! I could tell my dogs really enjoyed spending the weekend with him.
My previous sitter arrangements fell through at the last moment and Bill accepted my 2 dogs with less than 24 hours notice! He is super easy to communicate with and sent me multiple photos daily so I could see how much fun my guys were having. I would highly recommend Bill and plan on using him for all my dog sitting needs in the future!

This was Chase's first overnight stay away from home, and Bill did a great job of introducing chase to the other dogs. Chase had a great stay and I highly recommend Bill!
Bill was great. He was able to accommodate our two dogs on very short notice. They were EXHAUSTED when they got home from their fun weekend.
Bill was very welcoming and friendly. He has genuine passion in caring for pets. My dogs were even given a good-bye kiss!!
Bill was right on with the amounts of food, treats and other items I provided. I am so thankful I found him and will definitely be returning!
Thank you Bill

Dos had an amazing weekend! He played and was very tired when we picked him up! Exactly what you want after a long vacation is a tired pup to take a nap with. He enjoy frozen doggy treats, played tug of war and got lots of snuggles. Even with a last minute change of schedule we were able to drop Dos off no problem. We received pictures and even a video of our pup playing. I highly recommend Doggie Bed and Barkfast as your dog will have an amazing time!

Bill is clearly a true dog lover, and I felt so good knowing that he was caring for my pups. Bill gave me many updates (with pictures) during their stay so that I knew they were doing well. I plan to use him every time I go out of town. Thanks, Bill (and Cisco)!

Host was responsive and accommodating.
Our experience with Bill was fantastic. He was very quick to respond which made the booking process very smooth. He was very flexible on the pick up and drop off times which made the whole process stress-free. He also sent us pictures throughout the vacation and kept us well updated. We have booked with various hosts in the past and Bill was by far our favorite. You can tell that he truly cares about the dogs and their experience.

Great experience overall. Very quick to respond. Booked last minute. Sent funny picture updates of how my pet was doing. Definitely using Will next time I leave town.
He was very sweet, kind to my Brucy. He gave pics everyday! I highly recommend him!
William is awesome! He is so friendly and accommodating, I felt perfectly happy leaving my dog with him. Would highly recommend him!!!
Great job!!!! Thanks for the last minute reservation
Bill is possibly the only person we would trust to take care of our dog here in AZ. He understands animals and how to make a fun and comfortable environment for your canine. He kept our energetic pooch engaged all weekend and when he came home he was happy and tired. Bill is very kind and very giving. Absolutely love his two pooches too! Perfect ten in our book!

William was wonderful. We needed someone to watch our German Shepherd at the last minute. William returned my initial message immediately and it turned out to be a great match.

Also thanks to Dogvacy...we will be using this service for all our travels.

Frankie had a great stay with Bill! I hadn't used DogVacay before, but since our usual kennel was booked through the holiday season, we gave it a try. I was nervous, but from the first initial visit and throughout Frankie's stay, Bill put my mind at ease with his kind heart and frequent updates. Even when my flight back to Phoenix got canceled at the last minute and I had to spend two more days in Ohio, Bill was extremely accommodating with being able to have Frankie stay those extra nights with little notice. I would definitely bring Frankie to stay will Bill again!

Bill did a great job taking care of our dog. He is friendly person, who obviously really likes dogs. We would definitely use him again when the occasion arises.
We couldn't have asked for a better sitter for our dog. It was apparent from the first meeting Bill sincerely cared about Bindi feeling comfortable. She's an only pet in our home and I had some concerns about her behavior around other dogs. Bill took the time to introduce his dogs to Bindi gradually, which I was very impressed with. Bill provided pictures throughout Bindi's stay, even dressing her up for the holidays which we thought was adorable. Bindi came back to us happy and exhausted from all the fun she had. Bill will be the first person we reach out to should we need someone to care for Bindi again.

Bill is incredible!! He was extremely flexible with drop-off and pick-up times...he also let me spend as much time as I needed dropping Daizy off so that I felt comfortable leaving her. Bill texted me pictures of Daizy playing with her new friends and updates of how much fun she was having. I absolutely 100% trust Bill and would highly recommend him!! Thank you Bill!!

After some changes in my plans I was in need of a dog sitter fairly last minute and come on this site not really expecting much. I was immediately interested in having Bill as a sitter once I saw all his positive reviews and even though there were people listed much closer to my home, I decided on Bill because of all the kind words written about him. I couldn't agree more with what everyone else has to say; he is kind, attentive and flexible, and I really trusted him with my 11 week old puppy (my baby), and he definitely delivered. I loved getting picture and text updates during my trip and was happy to see how well my pup got along with Bill's two dogs. I will definitely be looking to have Bill watch my baby on my next trip!

Bill was very friendly and good with our lab puppy Kona. He was very accommodating to pickup and drop off times and kept us updated throughout Kona's stay. We picked up Kona and she was very happy.

We will be dropping Kona off here for our future travels.

Once again was able to enjoy a weekend away knowing my girls were in good hands. Thank you Bill!!!
Bill has been watching my pup, Jackson, since he was 6 months old back in March. Bill always sends picture updates of the fun my little man is having! Jackson loves Bill and is always so happy and exhausted when I pick him up! It is nice to have a little home away from home for my pup with Bill because I know Bill cares for Jackson like his own dogs!

Great host for our little pug Pearl! The weekend she stayed there were several other pugs staying too so she had a good time playing with all the other small dogs and received lots of pictures of her throughout the weekend.
Ike had a great stay with William, who provided daily updates and pictures. A perfect host.
William was extremely flexible, kind, considerate and diligent. I received multiple updates during their stay. He was very accommodating on my pick up and drop off times. Upon returning from my trip during pick up, my dogs appeared extremely happy, relaxed and comfortable in the surroundings they were in.

My pup seemed to really enjoyed herself while i was away. It was also very helpful to get updates while we were on vacation.
Had a last minute weekend staycation and as usual Bill was too the rescue. He always works so hard to make sure my sometimes crazy schedule is accomodated. Love Bill!!
Bill has been watching my pup, Russell, a few days a week since he was just 8 weeks old! I was nervous at first leaving my little baby but Bill was so attentive! He sent me lots of pictures and provided a fun but safe environment for Russ. I can definitely credit Bill with helping to train and socialize my dog incredibly quickly! Russell loves Bill and has only had positive experiences with both his dogs and his other furry guests. Of course, Russell is always happy and tired when I pick him up!

This was the first time I had ever used this service and I would highly recommend it. Bill was very easy to deal with, flexible and he sent pictures throughout the stay to update me on how my pups were doing. He even allowed my dogs to sleep with him at night.

Lucy enjoyed her stay with Bill, as usual! She even cried when we left! Thanks Bill!
Bill was great! He is a wonderful, caring person who loves animals! He communicated with us during Lucy's stay, sending pictures and updates! Lucy made some new friends too! I would highly recommend Bill!
Bill was an absolute godsend for my Boston Terrier, Edison. He accommodated a last minute reservation with open arms and graciously accepted Edison into his home, even allowing my snoring monster to sleep with him.

I wholeheartedly recommend Bill and will 100% use him again when travelling in the Phoenix area.

My dog Buddy was well taken care. Bill sent me every day pictures and updates. When i picked Buddy up he gave Bill a big hug. I can recommend Bill to any dog owner. Thanks again Bill. Dieter C Preiser
WONDERFUL - such a comfort to know they were well taken care of !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Easy booking and prompt, professional communication. Overall a wonderful experience!
Bill did a fantastic job caring for our dog Johnny overnight. Johnny seemed a bit nervous being left with a stranger, but Bill updated me with texts and pictures of Johnny relaxing into his visit. When I picked up Johnny the next day, he was very playful and extremely comfortable with Bill and his 2 dogs. We will happily entrust Bill with caring for Johnny again!

Bill is always great with our dogs and they really like him. He sends picture updates so we know they are having fun. He is the only person we leave our dogs with now.
VERY KIND, PATIENT - had to convince them it was time to go home :)
We have an elderly lab with special medical needs. William was wonderful with him-- kind and attentive. We will certainly book with him again.
Bill rocks!! We decided to do a last minute staycation at a resort that was not too dog friendly and Bill made special arrangements to make sure he could care for my girl. Love Bill - for the first time since being a dog parent I feel comfortable traveling. Thank you Bill!!

Had to go out of the country for work and knowing Tyra would be with Bill was a blessing. She loves spending time with him and I can rest easy knowing she is in good hands. She is diabetic and blind and he does great with her!!
Bill is always great to work with. I can go out of town and enjoy myself knowing my little girl is in good hands!!
William (Bill) was attentive to my emails in communicating the arrangements for drop off and pickup of my Rottweiler. Bill took my concerns of my big dog seriously and his confidence in his experiences eased my mind.
Bill regularly sent me pictures to keep me updated and let me know my dog was enjoying his stay.
I also knew my dog would be walked regularly with Bill as he walks his own dogs regularly!

Milo had a great time at Bill's house. I received pictures of him every day while I was gone and when I picked him up, he was a happy dog.
My dog didn't want to leave William's house!
William is so kind and verrrry easy to work with. His home setup is perfect for a dog to stay. He works from home, so my dog was under almost constant supervision. He has 2 other dogs that mine loved playing with. He doesn't have children (I don't have kids either so my dog is kind is scared of them lol). The perfect setup.
I also loved the picture updates he would text!

Thank you Bill!!

We have used Bill several times now and he's always been great with our dog! Very accommodating to our schedule. Jessica
This is the third time I've left my dog with Bill and I've been happy every time. Thank you Bill for making pick up and drop offs so easy!
Anastasia was in 7th heaven playing with Cisco and all the yellow tennis balls! I'm sure she had a wonderful time and I appreciated the picture updates. I'll be sure to book with Bill when I plan my next trip!
William was excelent. He sent me pictures frequently which helped me have a stress free vacation. He was knowlageabe and profesioal and I would definatley leave my dog with him again.
WONDERFUL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I made my reservation online with Bill and everything went smooth. We had our meet and greet which was great, our animals got along great!

Bill was wonderful with our little girl, sent us a pic or two daily, kept up updated via text, as we were gone for a week!

We felt very luck to find Bill, and next time we can't take her, she'll be going back to see Bill, Cisco, & Tsunami!

We used Bill for the first time over the holiday season and he was great! He was very accommodating to our schedule with drop-off and pick-up. He sent us pictures throughout our trip, and seems to have spoiled our dog. I felt very safe leaving our pet with him. We will be using him again!

Noah, my 65 lb long-legged-gazelle-of-a-dog had a great time staying with Bill and his two small pups. I know this because I got multiple picture messages while I was away on vacation. Bill was speedy to respond to any inquiries I had at any time during the day. He welcomed us into his home a few days prior to our reservation for a meet and greet between his dogs & mine -- my dog was unsure at first, but he loosened up and they all seemed to become pals. I received my dog in the way I left him -- hyper, happy, & healthy. We (Noah & Myself) definitely recommend leaving your little ones here!

Bill is a GREAT dog sitter. I was nervous about leaving my dog with anyone for such a long time (12 days) but from the beginning I knew Bill would be perfect. He also sent me photos and updates, which was awesome. His own dogs are very nice, in fact I don't think my dog wanted to leave his new friends when I came to get him. Bill is really, really good with dogs, your dog will be well taken care of, loved and have a great time. Highly recommend!!

Our pups were happy and tired from playing all weekend! Loved getting picture updates from Bill.
Lola and Jackson had a great time at Bill's for the weekend and we loved the photo updates he sent! We will definitely use his services next time we travel!
Bill was absolutely great with Roxy for the weekend. He sent pictures and she loved hanging out with the pugs!
Bill was great with my two beagles! By the end of their stay, the shy one (who I fully expected to hide under the furniture the whole time) was not only fine with Bill but walking up to greet strangers.

I'd give Bill eleven of five stars if I could!
