25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Dustin, I got in to dog sitting about three years through Dogvacay , but I have been watching friends dogs once in a while.I don't have a job at the moment so the noney helps me out on bills(alot) I will watch any friendly dog,. toy, small, medium and large, to xtra large as long as your pup gets along with mine wich won't be hard, my dog bud likes all dogs and layes around alot, 16 years old dog , please make sure there house trained , although Bud is old and dosnt like to play with other dogs anymore , he sleeps a lot . I'm not far from the airport incase your flying. I have a large yard for your dog if they won't try to get out , although I prefer a long leash, and I walk them all around my yard just for safety. Give me a try and i guarantee you will be happy.., I have posted pics of just a few different dogs I have watched. The bushan / Shizu , The first is mine, the second dog , the lab was mine until he got cancer.

It was a great experience. We were going to a wedding and needed to drop off early & pick up late. Following, the dogs were wild, ready to leave. They were not needy for attention. It was very obvious that they had been contented, exercised and given the attention. Thank you Dustin. You do a good job.
This was our first time taking Taz to Dustin, he is very close to where we live and his previous reviews were glowing. Cannot say they were wrong! He is a very genuine person, you can tell that he loves what he does. We felt secure that our boy would be well taken care of.
We couldn't be happier having used Dustin for our first Dogvacay experience! It was clear that he took great care of our girl and that she enjoyed his company just as much. We will definitely be using Dustin again!
Dustin was very nice and kept us up to date with daily texts. Our dog seemed right at home there. No problems after like we have had after she boarded in a busy kennel. She does better in someones home.
Dustin and his dad were very accommodating to my dogs needs and for the drop off/pick up times. I appreciated the daily updates and the photos and I was able to enjoy the family vacation without having to worry about my dog. Thanks so much!
It's pretty clear why Dustin has such great reviews! He and his dad were wonderful hosts - they were extremely responsive, kind, flexible, and they sent lots of pic updates during the weekend. We were very impressed with our experience and will definitely be booking with Dustin any time we drive through KC!
Dustin was very accommodating when we had to unexpectedly go out of town. He was flexible with drop off and pick up times and great with our dog. Thanks again for another great stay.
Dustin did a wonderful job with Joe and Rufus! We have to make several trips this year and we will definitely use him again!
Our dog Kali had a great time on her doggy vacant with Dustin and his dog. We got photos everyday and updates everyday. She seemed happy every time we saw a picture. When we came to get her she almost didn't want to leave! We will be using Dustin again in the future if we go on vacation.
Great job again. I will be back!
Always Great!
Dustin and Mike are wonderful people. It seems, Skipper is part of their family and they treat him as such!
Cricket has enjoyed her vacays at Dustin's. When we drop her off she is always ready to get inside to play with Dustin's dog and any other dogs that he may be pet sitting and we get a worry-free day!
Max did well again the Dustin. I believe this was the fourth time he watched Max and I am getting ready to schedule another visit next month.
Dustin and Mike are Great! Skipper had a slight problem and after contacting me they took care of it. It is always nice to know your pet is in caring hands.
Dustin was fantastic and so great with our dog, Stitch. He was very accommodating when setting up a time to meet and with our crazy schedule, that's a huge plus. I know Stitch had a great time and we would definitely use him again!
Skipper enjoyed his Vacay again! Dustin and Mike are the Best!
Dustin has watched my dog every other weekend for quit awhile now and my dog and I are very satisfied. To know your dog is with a loving and caring person is priceless!
It is so comforting to leave your pet with someone who is so caring while you are out of town.
Diezel had a great time with Dustin!
Dustin's the best! I do not have to worry about Skipper when he stays with Dustin and Mike. I know my dog is in a loving environment and Dustin can be trusted!
As always Dustin did a terrific job!
Dustin and his father Mike enjoy having my dog Skipper stay with them and their dog Bud! Skipper really has a good time when he stays with them and can hardly wait till his next visit!
5 out of 5!!!!!

Dustin is who to choose!

First impression, Dustin is gentle, caring, and is a dog lover. Has a large fenced-in yard. Took my pups out everyday to play (proof from the DAILY videos and photos he sent!!)!

You may be feeling unsure about leaving your doggy with someone you dont know, thinking what might happen over the time I'm gone. WELL, my shared concerns were gone immediately after receiving my first photo, a few hours after leaving them. A big tennis ball in Koda's mouth and Indy laying next to her food bowl, haha!! Both looking happy :) So will you be because by you choosing Dustin you are choosing a safe, caring environment. Dustin will give individualized attention to your family allowing you to have your own experience without concern.

By the way, his dog Bud is great. My dogs dont usually get along with other dogs, but Bud knew exactly how to handle himself. My dogs felt at home and so will yours :)
Skipper always enjoys his stay at Dustin's house. Dustin enjoys playing with Skipper too! We already booked again!
Dustin and his father Mike are good people and genuinely love taking care of dogs. They are welcoming and gave us a tour of the house and very large fenced property. Our puppy had recently had surgery and he was wearing a cone and needed medication. Dustin messaged us updates when he had given the medication. We really liked the pictures and updates he sent, it made us smile while we were traveling. He was also responsive when we asked questions during the trip. When we picked up our puppy, he was relaxed and happy, and we could tell he was comfortable while we were gone. We would happily recommend Dustin and are glad we have a nice doggy vacay home for our puppy when we travel.
Dustin is a very caring and trustworthy person. My dog enjoys his stays while Dustin takes care of him.
Max was with Dustin for 8 days. He was delighted to see me but I could tell he was content and cared for on during my absence. Dustin sent me pictures and updates frequently. We will be back as needed for additional visits.
We can always relax and enjoy our time away with Dustin looking after our Olive. He is very thorough, caring, and thoughtful in his daily communications and photo-text to assure us she is having a relaxed doggie "Vacay" as well.
Great Job Dustin and Mike. Maggie has found a second home. You two did a great job, and because of that, I was at peace while I was gone.
Dustin took my Chocolate Lab in while I was on vacation for 5 days. He took good care of my dog. Playing ball frequently with my very active dog. He provided a safe, stress free environment. I would recommend him to my friends and family to watch their dogs.
I could tell right away that Dustin was going to provide a wonderful, caring place for our Olive to spend her 4th of July weekend, which is comforting to any dog owner. He kept us informed on how things were going with pictures and notes, assuring us all was well. The nice big fenced in backyard provided a place for plenty of exercise and Dustin's many years as an experienced dog owner/handler along with his attention to our dog 24/7 made our days away from Olive much easier to enjoy. This was our first experience with DogVacay, but won't be our last, thanks to Dustin. I'm sure Olive also hopes to be pampered by Dustin on another "Vacay" very soon. No more dog kennels fo us!
I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with Dustin for his first time away from home. He had a big backyard so he could play and kept us updated on how he was doing all day. He was also very flexible with last minute booking. I would recommend Dustin to anyone.
My puppy had never spent time away from the house. Dustin and his sweet dogs made the transition easy. Plus he sent me messages so I knew all was well. I will be back for more visits.
Dustin was great with Scrappy, and kept me updated with pictures while we were gone. It was so nice to know that my dog was being well taken care of while we were on vacation!
I would not hesitate to leave Elektra with Dustin again. He has plenty of open space for her to play and does not use kennels. The daily photos were appreciated and I did not worry about her at all.
Dustin did a great job of communicating to me with pictures and comments, while caring for Skipper! Skipper enjoyed his weekend with Dustin, this was his 2nd stay. I will be contacting Dustin in the future to take care of Skipper while I'm away.
Dustin and his father Mike are very nice people and love dogs. Dustin sent several pictures every day, which is reassuring when your loved pet is in their hands. I travel often and plan on using Dustin again to take care of my dog
Dustin did such a great job of updating me on Harley and sending pics. I felt very comfortable leaving Harley in Dustin's capable and caring hands. I would definitely recommend him and would use him again. Thanks for giving my pup a great dog vacay!
Another great vacay for my dogs. Dustin is very attentive and kind. Thanks again!
Dustin had all 3 of my dogs for two nights. He was very attentive to their needs (one has meds that have to be given), he brushed them, and they came home happy and tired from all the fun they had at his house!! We have used Dustin on more than one occasion and will continue to use him for our dog sitting needs. Thanks!!
I am so glad I found Dustin and his family to take care of Cici while I was out of town. They DID take excellent care of Cici. Cici can run and play with her four-leg friends in the large backyard. She looks really happy when staying at Dustin's house since I have received photo from Dustin everyday assuring me Cici is doing great at home. Also Dustin gave her a thorough bath 1 day before I took her back. I can still smell the fragrance from the shampoo. When I pet her, her furs feel soft and smooth. Great thanks to Dustin and his family! They gave numerous love to my dog and take great care of Cici with all of their heart! I will DEFINITELY let them to take care of Cici again in the future!
Dustin was great! Tobey got along great with his dogs and enjoyed the fenced in back yard. She also came back very well brushed and was nice and soft. I will definitely use again! Highly recommend.
The house and giant fenced yard were perfect for my chocolate lab. Dustin sent pics every day and even brushed Zeke each day. Zeke came back happy and I could tell he had a wonderful experience here. Highly recommend.
