About Neil

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**we have served over 30 happy customers now!!**

**We are now offering 24 HR supervision!--Your little pooch will have a constant play companion!!**

**We upgraded to a NEW home and are on a HUGE piece of property with PLENTY of space to run around, and a cozy home when your pooches need to be inside!**

**We currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.**

**Our Reviews reflect the kind of care your pooch will get!**

We are a married couple in the bay area! I am a PhD scientist in Biology and also train dogs in my spare time. My wife is a finance person and we both LOVE dogs and Cats. We have a wonderful, very well behaved, and very well trained 5 year old dog. He loves other dogs and is also a wonderful host. We are in a community of town-houses with a big park where your dog can go for long walks or play/run around. I also can train your dog or help you with behavior problems that your canine friend may have! You can come check out our dog (his name is Chipps) to see what kind of training is possible! We have been taking care of dogs for over 4 years (see our pics of guests that have stayed!) and love to have a furry friend with us!

Reasons to choose us:
-Huge play yard (fenced and completely safe!).
-24 hr supervision! No alone time for your pooch!
-We have been taking care of dogs for 10 years! (see the pictures!)
-We walk our dog daily for at least an hour (usually 2 hours!)
-We are surrounded by greenery, and therefore always play fetch and/or other games with our dogs (they also have a play yard of their own if they can play friendly with each other!) and
-We are on a large, secure property! Your pooch will be in vacation mode here!
-We can train dogs and work with them to teach new tricks or modify any behavioral issues!

Neil is such a fantastic host. We left our dog with him over a weekend. He was so great with regular updates and photographs. What's more, he treated our dog as if she was his own; she refused to eat dinner the first night she was out there, for our dog as if she was his own; she refused to eat dinner the first night she was out there, for some reason, and Neil brought her into the family bedroom that night so they could keep an eye on her. She returned home happy and in good spirits. We would leave our dog with him again in a heartbeat. Thanks Neil!

Neil and his family were wonderful to Cole while we were away! After many meet and greets with other Dogvacay hosts, we chose Neil based on how similar his family was to ours. Cole is a high energy dog who needs both mental stimulation and lots of similar his family was to ours. Cole is a high energy dog who needs both mental stimulation and lots of exercise. After our meet and greet with Neil and Chipps, we knew Cole would feel right at home here. We were impressed with Neil's confidence in handling Cole and also how well Cole and Chipps got along after their introduction.

Since both dogs loved playing fetch, we knew Chipps would match Cole's energy. We enjoyed getting text updates and pictures of Cole daily and what he was up to for the day, either a long walk with Chipps, playing fetch or frisbee, or getting an antler from Neil's daughter!

When I went to pick Cole up, I was impressed that Neil worked with him to learn some new tricks! He was very obedient and listened attentively to Neil's command. Neil gave some great insight about Cole and also some pointers on how to handle him in training. Overall, we were very happy with Cole's vacation with Neil and his family and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a second family for their dog!

Neil and his family have been wonderful hosts to my labradoodle, Jimmy. I was nervous about leaving my baby anywhere, and Neil understood that. He made sure he (and Chipps,) spent enough time getting acquainted with Jimmy and communicated with me made sure he (and Chipps,) spent enough time getting acquainted with Jimmy and communicated with me everyday. He not only sent pictures but also was patient when I had many questions about Jimmy while I was away. Jimmy is used to plenty of exercise and human interaction, and Neil made sure to play with Jimmy and walk him everyday. I enjoyed my break knowing that my baby was in good hands and well taken care of. I will definitely bring Jimmy back here again.
