About Rodrigo

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I have nurtured, loved and lived with dogs since we were kids. Monica works for the World Wildlife Fund, an NGO tasked with the preservation of animal species, and I work for a tech company from home. Hence, our four-legged buddies are almost always supervised and accompanied.

We do not have real children of our own, so our two wonderful furry fellows ARE our children. Both are rescue-dogs, as we believe that there are way too many unclaimed ones to bother with purchasing a puppy. They have been the beneficiaries of a plethora of love and affection. As such, they conduct themselves as almost perfectly behaved kids, are accustomed to doggie visits, love to follow commands, and have the undeniable right at will to cuddle up with any human being that steps into our premises.

Ours is a safe and pet-friendly neighborhood with very little vehicle traffic. In addition to at least two leashed walks per day, Our dogs will have supervised access to our backyard, as well as a large county park with two baseball fields just across the street, where our little companions love to greet, run and play with their peer friends and a wonderful community of pet-loving sapiens. They have a minimum of four outings per day, and more when the weather cooperates.

We love dogs of all breeds, color and shapes. However, we do not like parents who let their dogs become aggressive or destructive. We thus require a one-to-one meeting and approval from our furry family members before accepting new pets. As a parent yourself, surely you'd appreciate this extra but critical step. Repeat friends can skip this request. Furthermore, your pet will never be in the company of too many other boarding dogs. The maximum number we allow is two at any one time. We prefer to keep it small and simple to provide our 100 percent attention and to keep enjoying what we do. If caring for other human's dogs becomes a burden, it will no longer make any sense to host anymore.

In addition to receiving frequent fun pictures while you're away, you will also have access to our 24-hour, real-time, online poosh camera. Please note that this feature is experimental, and your dog may not necessarily appear on your screen while you watch, as s/he may be roaming around elsewhere in the house, or s/he may turn out to be camera-shy :-) This feature will only be given upon request and you will need to have a Java-enabled browser to watch (no worries, I'll explain :-).

Since moving into our single-family home in 2001, we have hosted dozens of neighbor dogs for free, simply because we enjoy it. The income received from you will mostly help care for your and other future small companions. And most importantly, we truly have fun with well-behaved dogs and appreciate meeting their parents within our community. Joining DogVacay was therefore a seamless and ingenious process for us.

Sonia enjoyed staying with Rodrigo's family. She had such a good time there, walking outside everyday, going to nature trips. We received a nice pictures of her. She came back home happy and healthy. Thank you so much Rodrigo!
Rodrigo was able to take our Enzo through a last minute booking. He kept us updated and even let him sleep on his bed to make our Enzo feel less anxious. We will definitely book with Rodrigo again. I could tell our Enzito was well taken care of
Our puppy is always happy to go to Rodrigo's house and happy when we pick him up. Also, the kids really enjoy the updates and pictures that he sends.
