About Daniel

Our house is entirely fenced in with a large backyard, covered in herbs and super interesting smells for the most inquisitive dogs to occupy themaweselves or just sunbathe to their heart's content.

My dogs, O'Riley and Moses, and I have hosted >60 dogs over the past three years. We're all happy to have guests and the inside as well as the outside of our house is very dog friendly.

Great hosts! They were the first people we ever left our pup with and we would be happy to do it again. Beyond being good people with a nice house, yard and pups, here are a couple notes on what made them fantastic:
- Smart dog owners. They knew taking the dogs on a walk together was the best way to introduce our high energy pup with theirs.
- They were super kind and went out to buy additional food to mix with the kibble for our furry daughter.
- They sent photos of all the happy pups, which made us more relaxed on our vacation.

Daniel was such a great host. He texted/emailed pics daily. He even sent me a message the first night to let me know that she had settled down and was comfortable, which made me feel better about leaving her with someone new. She loved playing with their dogs and romping around in their fenced yard!

Daniel and Maddie were SO wonderful with our 7 month old puppy. We were a little nervous about leaving him for the first time (for 4 days!) and as soon as we met them and their sweet dogs, we immediately felt comfortable. They were so friendly and loving with our puppy.
They sent us photos and updates while we were gone, and responded right away when I texted them about updates or things that I forgot to tell them.
I know Bear enjoyed playing with their dogs and being in their great yard each day! I would definitely have them watch our pup again!

Daniel was a great host for our lab, Max. He has a great outside area for dogs to run around. We also got some nice updates with photos while we were away. Looking forward to having Max stay with him again.
Loved it.
Daniel was great, he has a big yard for Pluto to play in and was willing to work around my schedule to ensure a convenient and good experience. Pluto had a great time.
Daniel was very helpful and responded promptly to any messages while I was gone. His two dogs made great companions for my pup and Daniel was very accommodating for my dog making sure he had plenty of toys and attention. I would definitely recommend Daniel if you are looking for a home away from home for your dog.

Daniel was extremely accommodating and took very good care of Bella. He was extremely responsive and sent us updates during our vacation as well as pictures to let us know she was doing well. He also gave her medicine and reinforced training behaviors we were working on before our trip. Most importantly, he seemed to enjoy taking care of her which meant a lot to us.

Daniel was great with my four month old boxer puppy. Paxton got to play in the fenced in backyard and Daniel even took him on a couple walks while he was with him. I received a couple pictures while I was gone, and my baby puppy came home happy, healthy and tired. I would definitely use Daniel again.

Daniel was terrific with us and with our Lab. It was our first time leaving our 5-year-old dog with anyone besides her "grandparents." He was the ideal dog-sitter because he is organized enough to ensure the logistics and care were perfect, but laid-back enough to enjoy our dog playing with his two adorable ones. We were grateful for Daniel.

Daniel was great-he responded promptly to our messages through the site and is very friendly. Right out of his front door is a big fenced in area where the dogs could run around and play. His 2 dogs were friendly and playful which our dog loved. Daniel was very flexible as we had to change our time that we picked up our dog since our flight was delayed multiple times.

I was very satisfied with Daniel and the experience my dog, Bruce, had while I was away. I had a last minute change of plans and had to schedule for a dog sitter the same day because of travel. He contacted me within an hour and everything was smooth sailing from there on. My schedule was hectic but he worked with me on a pick up time as well. I would highly recommend Daniel and will be using his service in the future.

Made reservation last minute but Daniel was able to help me out. Great place to send your dog. Daniel was very friendly and responsive. I highly recommend you choosing Daniel's home.
***** DEFINITE RECOMMEND *****
Roxy had a great weekend @ Daniel's Dog Loft. She is only a puppy and his 2 gentle dogs were the perfect playmates.
Daniel's set up has lots of room for them to run around together and play, both inside and out.
It's clear that he loves dogs and even offered us some care advice for Roxy as she grows.
It was a last minute decision not to take her away with us - we're so lucky to have found a home as perfect as Daniel. He responded to all our messages super fast, and was flexible with times etc.
We'd happily set another play vacation for her with Daniel and his dogs next time we are away.

Thanks Daniel for looking after our little puppy so well!

Could not have asked for a better sitter for our dog! Very friendly and easily available for all of our needs. Will definitely call again if we are in the area. Thanks again Daniel!
Daniel was a wonderful host! My puppy had a great time playing with his dogs and he was super helpful in accommodating our ever-changing schedule. Highly recommend!
It is great that we found Daniel and his two dogs to look after our dog Louie when we have to be away. Louie is a young cocker spaniel and can be quite the handful. However, Daniel is really good with him and the extra large space for him to run around is great. Louie runs right to Daniel's door when we drop him off (opposed to tail-tucked under his legs when we have left him at our vets kennel). We know he loves going for visits there! Daniel is super flexible, great communicating about pick-ups/drop-offs, and I get a super-professional/responsible vibe from him (oppossed to the quirky and eccentric sitters we found on craigslists a year ago). So thankful we found him for Louie!

This being my first experience with dogvacay it was a really good one. Daniel was very nice and welcoming and Mona(My Boxer) was just as excited to be there. After her stay Mona seemed to have had a great time. I look forward to using Daniel again.
Kyla's stay seemed great ... she was very happy when we picked her up. Daniel's dogs are very sweet and the huge fenced in backyard is nice, especially if your dogs like to run around a lot (ours does not but still nice to have the big space).
I scheduled a last minute trip and sent a request to Daniel. He responded almost immediately and was very kind and understanding even though I had a million questions. I was nervous because I've never left my dog with anyone besides a family member or friend but Daniel put me at ease the moment I got there. He helped me get all Mingo's things out of my car and showed me around his place. He has a very big yard (very uncommon for the city) and our dogs instantly became best friends, running around the yard and playing. Mingo literally wouldn't even take a break to say bye to me!!! When I picked him up, Mingo was still having a good time and was very sad to leave his new friends!

Daniels loft is an awesome place for dogs (and humans too). He and his two dogs made for great fun for my dog Truffles, a chocolate lab. There's pretty much an open door policy between his left and his fenced in yard so truffles got quite a workout. I would recommend David to anyone interested in using dog vacay in the Atlanta area.
