About Bob

Ranch style house with fenced in back yard. Residential neighborhood with public park. Early riser for morning walks. Generally, your dog will have the run of the house. Lap time cuddling is a must.

In order to give your beloved pet my full attention, I usually board one dog at a time unless there are two from the same household and you wish to have them stay together, which is often the case for my clients.

Due to the size of my house, I generally accommodate only small to medium (45 lbs max) pets.

To quote Will Rogers:

“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”

? Will Rogers

Also a member of Dogs on Deployment which supports our troops by caring for their pets when they are deployed.

Our little girl was so happy as always when staying with Bob!
I cannot say enough about Bob.... He walked him, played with him and just treated our little guy as if he were his own pet.

Bob even took the time to send us photos of our dog while we were away.
That was so comforting....

Just a truly great experience.

Thanks again Bob....... :)

Bob is a kind, gentle, accommodating host who makes you feel as welcome as your pet. We highly recommend him. His home is well-kept, clean, and very pet-friendly. I think our little dog was sorry to leave!
Bob is the most dedicated sitter you can leave your special buddy with...My guy loves Bob and whatever he does with Bob leaves him happy and content...and no anxieties............Very special!
Bob was very attentive and my very sensitive new rescue "baby" loved his stay with Bob..............but even better was the fact there was no stress observed....he stayed with Bob willingly and when he left he was absolutely perfect!
My 2 dogs were very happy staying with Bob! He took great care of them. One of my dogs is very nervous around new people, but he became comfortable with Bob quickly. Bob sent us pictures daily, so I could see how the dogs were doing. I will definitely book another dog Vacay with Bob in the future!

Bob and his wife took very good care of our fur babies. When we picked them up post our trip both seemed content and happy. Desi was lounging on the sofa and Hunter seemed to be happy roaming around his vacation environment. We will definitely use Bob for future Dog Vacations.

Another very nice stay for Bailey with Bob. She senses where we are as we drive down Fairview and runs up to the door at Bob's house, and quickly runs from room to room when off the leash. It is clear she is happy to be there. This is such a great comfort to us when are away and can't take her with us. Thank you Bob!

Another great experience. Bob and his wife are the best hosts. Molly is always well taken care of and very happy.
My two dogs have very different personalities and needs and were both cared for completely and without any problems by Bob. It was wonderful to be able to go on vacation and not have to worry about my pets. His home is very nice and well suited to pet care. He sent pictures and assurances every day that they were doing fine. My one dog was even recovering from dental surgery which necessitated extra work when preparing their meals. Bob is clearly experienced and good natured when taking care of pets. I totally recommend him as a great choice for someone seeking a pet care provider. Thanks Bob, I'm sure I'll see you again!

Being new to the area, meeting Bob and his wife was such a relief!
They are incredibly kind and friendly and you can tell immediately that they love dogs!
Diesel spent the day with Bob while I moved into my new house and when I came to pick him up, Diesel was having so much fun he didn’t want to leave. Bob has lots of toys to play with and plenty of space in his fenced in yard- Diesel was totally exhausted when I brought him home (amazing).
Thanks Bob- See you soon!

My Molly has stayed with Bob and his wife quite a few times. Each and every time she enjoys it more and more. Their home is meticulous!

When we picked our little Molly up today she was so at home and I immediately knew she had a great stay with Bob and his wife. They are absolutely the most lovely people you could ever meet. My dog adores both of them, as we do!

Molly is looking forward to her next visit and sleep over at their place.

Molly could not have had a better experience anywhere!

Thanks Bob!

This was the first time we ever left our dog, Nucky, with a anyone outside of our family at all, let alone over night. Bob put us 100% completely at ease right from the start. He offered to have us bring Nucky over more than once to check out the house and to make sure he was comfortable with his new surroundings before we left him for the weekend. While I was away, Bob sent me several photos of Nucky playing, going on walks, taking naps and overall just having a GREAT time!

He made sure Nucky felt right at home while he was there with him, giving him the run of the house and mimicking his life at home as much as possible, he took outstanding care of him & all the while made sure he had a ton of fun too! In addition to taking great care of our dog, he made sure to keep in constant contact with us, keeping our minds at ease too.

We've already booked another weekend getaway for Nucky to go stay with Bob & would absolutely recommend his home to others who love and treat their dogs just like family!

Bob always makes my little sweet little Molly feel right at home. He is the very best host for our dog.
Fantastic people. My dogs were taken care of as if it was me taking care of them. A+.
Bob and Joanne were the PERFECT match for my two precious pups! From the moment we met them. we all (my husband, pups and I) were immediately at ease. Bob and Joanne are so loving, inviting, and easy going, and their setup is exactly what my pups needed. So much so, that when we went to pick them up, instead of being ecstatic at being "rescued" the pups were just happy to see us, but sad their vacation was over!! Thanks Bob and Joanne. We will be seeing you again I am sure!!

Bob is the BEST! Our little poodle loves going to his house. As soon as she arrives she is happy and feels right at home. Bob and his wife are just lovely!
Bob paid very close attention to every detail in caring for my dog. He is calm and organized and my dog was immediately relaxed in his lovely home.
Bob and his wife were great. We felt very comfortable leaving Shadow at their house...when we picked Shadow up she looked relaxed and looked as if she had slept. I definitely recommend Bob to others!
This was Sabrina's longest stay with bob and his wife Joanne and once again she was well taken care of. I honestly do not know what we would do if we had not found this incredible home for our fur-baby to enjoy while we travel! Sabrina ran up to their home when she realized she was back to see them again, with her tail wagging! My husband and I travel with ease knowing she is in the best possible care!

My dog Coco and I could not be more satisfied. Thank you, Bob.
My 2 dogs just had another great stay with Bob and his wife! No worries at all, they get wonderful care and all the extra TLC they could possibly need. Thank you, Bob! Next trip/visit is already booked.
We always have piece of mind when Sabrina is in Bob's home!
Bob and his wife made me and my dog feel at home once we walked in the door. The house is immaculate and inviting. I will absolutely use Bob to dog-sit again and recommend him to anybody that asks!!
Coco was comfortable and happy! That smile on her furry face and bounce I her step speaks for itself. Thank you, Bob
Well Sabrina is officially a **repeat customer** with Bob and his lovely wife! Once again I was able to go away with absolutely NO worries of the care and love she would get while we were away....I would highly recommend Bob to everyone! This is your guy! Trust me!

Bob was very conscientious about taking care of my dog, Duke and giving him his medicine. I would not hesitate in allowing Bob to take care of Duke again.
My 2 dogs just had a return stay with Bob, and as always, everything was wonderful!! Bob and his wife take care of Max and Maya as if they were their own, no worries from me when I have to leave them. I've already booked my next visit! Thanks, Bob!

What can I say......my yorkie is my baby and after losing my mom to cancer I could not imagine who I could trust with our dog as she has only stayed with family when we traveled... After viewing many profiles in my area I kept going back to Bobs and finally reached out to him for a meet and greet. After meeting both Bob and his lovely wife I knew that she would be in great hands! They were so incredibly accommodating with all of Sabrina's needs and made sure her routine at our home was followed in theirs! When we picked her up from our trip it was apparent she was spoiled and loved while we were gone! We have booked Bob for our remaining vacations this year and would HIGHLY recommend their home to anyone!

We had a great experience with Bob and will definitely be using his services on the future!
Our pup Oliver had a wonderful time with Bob and his wife. They were kind and welcoming from the moment we met them, and eager to play with Oliver and cuddle him. Oliver stayed with Bob during my wedding weekend and Bob was more than accommodating when he offered to pick Oliver up from the ceremony for us (where he had been the ring bearer). I felt extremely safe having Oliver stay with Bob and would do it again in a heartbeat!

My dogs stay with Bob was great. I feel confident when leaving my "girls" with Bob knowing they are in good hands....Thank You Bob...Judy, Abby & Rosie.
bob is always so accommodating and truly cares about your pet. Thanks BOB!
Bob is fantastic. Our Calvin gets so excited when we pull up to his house. He jumps out of the car to run inside the house! when we bring him home I think he gets sad because Bob spoils him with love and attention!! Thanks Bob, we love you!!
Bob is wonderful. Our dog Calvin is always so eager to get out of the car and run in his house, need i say more?! Thank you Bob and his wife for loving Calvin. It is such a comfort to know he is loved when we are a way. xo
Bob and Joanne are wonderful people. My dogs came back to me happy and healthy and I am sure better for their stay with them. Highly recommend. Two thumbs up!!!!!!!
My dog Rosie spent her first day with Bob and Joanne. With my permission, Bob arranged a play date with a neighbor's dog of similar age and size. Rosie came home happy and tired after a day of play. I am very grateful to have found such nice folks to take care of my girl. I will definitely be using their services in the future.

I would give Bob 6 stars if I could! Bob and his wife Joanne took fantastic care of my two dogs for four days. After the initial Meet & Greet I did not have any reservations about leaving them for my trip - I knew it was going to be a perfect match. My shy poodle warmed up to Bob right away. The dogs had run of the house, lounged on their couches, slept on the beds - just like at home! And I know my dogs were delighted to have the large fenced-in yard to explore. I also had the opportunity to use the DogVacay "concierge" service, and they responded quickly as well. I couldn't be happier, and I have already booked Bob for my next trip.

Bob was great! His backyard was the perfect place for our pup to run and play fetch for hours. Bob even picked up Oliver for us. He was so friendly and kind, and I would definitely trust Bob with my dog again.
Calvin really enjoyed his time at Bob's and I will definitely use them again. Calvin is a great judge of people and he had no hesitation running into Bob's house and greeting him and his wife.
I was so relieved to leave my pooch in good hands! You could tell right away that Bob and his wife are dog lovers-- the objective test was that 1st greeting my dog gave THEM! My dog ran right up asking for pets & kisses, meaning he had no hesitations about staying here. Phew. Bob was experienced and savvy to tend to my dog's needs, which really put me at ease. I was also appreciative of the updates I received while I was away.
Most importantly, when I picked up my boy the next day, he was tired out and happy as can be. Perfect.

I'm so picky about who I leave my darling dog, Cookie with when I go away but I felt very much at ease when I dropped Cookie with Bob for overnight stay last weekend.

I think it worked out beautifully for all of us. Bob said my Cookie was an Angel and Cookie had a wonderful time with Bob and his wife.

Thank you for taking good care of my Cookie and I would definately consider using your service again.

All the best,
Mona

I was honestly skeptical about joining DogVacay. However, after having my pet stay with Bob, I am so glad that I did.

I reviewed many hosts on DogVacay website but kept going back to Bob. Prior to booking, I had many concerns as to whether my beagle, Wilma was a good candidate in general to be hosted and discussed this matter with Bob. He thought my issues would not be his and put my mind at ease.

When I dropped Wilma off, I was so impressed with her accommodations plus bonus beautiful backyard for her to explore.

When I picked up Wilma at Bob’s, I could see that she was so happy and well cared for. I believe that Bob also enjoyed being with Wilma. I have no hesitations at all to book again with Bob. I think Wilma misses Bob and his wife.

Thank you so much Bob.
Mary D.
