About David

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
You have a dog...you're going to be gone...well, we're it! Your pet will enjoy a 5 star stay while your away! We are the Preferred Rockford area Canine Caretakers and we pride ourselves in really getting to know each individual dog. Catering to their specific needs is our specialty.

David, Trent and Payton are life long dog owners who just love pups. David is an internet guru running an ecommerce site from home who can supervise the pups all day long. He has help from his 2 young assistants, Trent and Payton who wanted to start their own business to earn money to save for college. They are all supported by family pets Tiara and Gizmo who love to play and make new friends.

We have a spacious home which offers enough room for small or large guests to get comfy. Bring your pup over for day long play and pampering. There is 3+ acres of room out back for jumping, running & playing or just basking poolside in the sun. Come help Tiara and Gizmo explore our private doggie nature trails!

All visitors enjoy a neighborhood stroll several times a day. Cuddles and belly rubs by amateur masseuses provided each evening at no extra charge. We believe dogs deserve to enjoy themselves too!
Some say David can telepathically converse with certain dogs. This makes things so much easier and puts the dogs at ease! They seem to enjoy finding someone to talk with almost as much as David does!!!

We make sure to keep you updated with plenty of pics and short notes on how things are going. We want you to remain worry free and enjoy your vacay as much as your pups will be enjoying theirs.

See you soon!

Last minute arrangements are usually no problem as I am home 99% of the time.

We look forward to meeting you and your pup!

David & his kids were excellect caregivers for our dog. We appreciated the updates & the picture they sent. Thanks for helping us enjoy a weekend up north!
We were so thankful that Dog Gone It took such great care of our four month old Lab puppies for our first weekend away from them.

These two siblings are generally well behaved but STILL, puppies! Lots of energy! It is a team effort with Dave siblings are generally well behaved but STILL, puppies! Lots of energy! It is a team effort with Dave and family! They took puppies for nature walks together and had adventures as a group!

And Dave's official welcoming committee, Gizmo, couldn't be cuter!

We felt very welcome and comfortable. It was clear that David knew what he was doing - helped us with the process. And of course they sent pictures each day and texted the first morning with a pupdate! The peace of mind allowed us to enjoy our time away!

We took our dog for a trial at David's and were so pleased with the time he had there. He came home happy and tired. We don't like kennels so this was our first separation from him.. And will defiantly use David and his helpers again.
