About Derek

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had pets all my life and love animals. Your pet will be treated with all kinds of love and care. At the present time I have a Golden Retriever, Sammy, and a Belgium Shepherd, Decker. 4 years ago, the BC SPCA asked me to rehab this dog who had been hit by a car, had $3000 worth of surgery and no apparent owner. I agreed to rehab him and guess what. HE NEVER LEFT!!!!. Decker and I are wonderful friends and we both love each other. Sammy runs 30-40 miles a week training with my wife and I. He loves his runs in the mountains. Decker will run 6-8 miles a week also in the woods.
Since I live right on the ocean and border with Washington state, we can offer care there as well.

Now here is my silly devotion to my life pets. I have written my own humorous obituary,however, I name every pet that I have ever had..

Derek was simply amazing. He was very open and caring with River, sent updates and great communication. I could tell River was having an amazing time in Derek's care.
Derek D was a wonderful host for our pup. Very professional and at the same time very caring for our dog while we were away. He kept us up to date on how things were going with fun emails and pictures. Would definitely recommend Derek for your dogs next vacation.
Derek watch my little dog, Oscar, while I was on vacation. I only have fabulous things to say about Derek, not only was he accommodating to my schedule but put me to ease from our 1st conversation and we did a meet & greet at Derek's home before Oscar's stay. I wouldn't just trust anyone with my baby, Derek truly loves dogs. He sent daily updates and pictures of Oscar making himself right at home in Derek's home. Oscar came back happy and tired, which was great as Oscar is high energy. I highly recommend Derek to anyone looking for trustworthy care for your pet.
Thanks again Derek!
Derek, was absolutely fantastic! If you're looking for a great home that will love and care for your dog while your out in the world - I highly suggest Derek. He goes out of his way to make sure you and your pet are happy with the experience. Thank you so much Derek... the piece of mind you gave was priceless!
Derek was great. Very easy to work with and flexible. My Basil was well taken care of while on her DogVacay. I was continually updated with texts and pictures which my kids looked forward to daily. I would not hesitate to leave her with Derek again.
