About Philemon

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a friendly and passionate dog owner as I love my furry children and this will be extended to your pet. I have cared for my pets for over 8 years as they are spoiled with so much love and devotion! I have also watched many friends dogs overnight, even had Brian a lab for 3 weeks. I loved him. He showed my Neptune how to do doggie tricks.

My home is very conveniently located in Tacoma, and it is very cozy with a beautiful back yard for the babes to play in.

I will offer cuddles, play, and several walks during the day. This service will bring your furry love's great support and compassion as to ease any seperation anxiety. I will care for them as if they were my own. I look forward to watching your baby while you are away on vacation, or if you are working. You are putting your trust in someone and a safe environment with me! See you and your pet children soon. I can not wait to meet all of them, as I love to build relationships. This is such a better situation for your furry love's then to put them in a boarding area where there is constant noise. Here they will breathe, relax, enjoy and not have to put up with the stress. They will come home happy to you.

Philemon was very professional,personal,kind,caring and treated my Buddha as one of his own.He kept me updated and sent me pictures.He is a loving caregiver and I recommend him 100% 5*****.
Simply the BEST. Caring, loving and thoughtful. I will never leave my dog with anyone else.
DogVaca and host Philemon came through for me in a big way! I had to go out of town for a week at the last minute and was in a panic because I couldn't bring my puppy Scout with me. We had never been separated for so long. After calling 5 or 6 boarding places (which all scared me), I happened upon DogVaca! It was very easy to navigate - just put in my zip code. Voila! I had so many hosts to choose from! I sent a message to Philemon and several others while at work, and to my surprise - Philemon texted me back within 15 minutes! He lived close by so we made an appointment to meet! After meeting Philemon, I could finally exhale! He is a very delightful person, with 3 wonderful dogs of his own, and told me why he AND his doggies enjoy taking in and boarding other dogs! We had a great conversation about Scout and his needs! And Scout took to the pack right away! It was a done deal!! What I REALLY appreciated too, was that Philemon sent me pictures every day of Scout having a good time!! Although in a few of the pictures Scout looked like he was having a little too much fun!! LOL! Bottom line is - I am so grateful to Philemon for taking care of Scout so well and providing him with so much love and attention that no commercial big boarding place could possibly give, that I will use his service ONLY going forward! Thank you DogVaca! And Philemon - you are the best - I couldn't ask for more!

Philemon was great and very attentive! He treated our dog, Bruno like one of his own. Updates and pictures were sent to keep us at ease. Will use him again and again! Highly recommended.
