20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home PT taking care of dogs. We provide a custom dog boarding service. This is different than traditional boarding. Dogs are almost never kenneled unless advised by a pet parent. Supervised outdoor/indoor and park play and separate spaces for dogs to nap in. walks everyday, I provide bones (cow pork etc. so there is no splintering) and other dog toys. we are 20 minutes from the the SLC airport.

Our girl Mel LOVED her vacay here! David was so flexible when coordinating pickup/ drop off and made everything super easy. His place has plenty of open room indoors and out (+ doggy door) which is great when you have such an energetic breed! We could see how much fun she was having from the pics and that she had no issue making herself at home there. She was returned to us SO happy, exhausted, and brushed.

We will definitely be returning when we need to board her in the future!
David was most responsive. Helpful and extremely flexible. Amazing and easy to reach, get updates and extended an additional day on short notice. Highly recommended
Great host. I loved getting pictures of our dog from him.
Pepper had a wonderful time! David is so nice and sent pics of Pepper. He was so tired when he got home. We could tell he played a lot! His coat was so beautiful! He brushed him and gave him a bath. We will be coming back for sure! Much more fun for him and ALOT more reasonable than the Petsmart hotel we were going to! THANK YOU DAVID!
David is wonderful!! He helped Rosie feel right at home and kept us updated on how she was doing. He sent several pics and videos of her to us while we were gone. We will for sure use David again!!!
The first time leaving my pup is always the hardest. David was a great host. Pumpkin was glad to see me when I got home, but she was happy there. She played with the other dogs and enjoyed being outside, weather permitting. She even had a nice bath!!!
David did great with Pepper! She sometimes gets anxiety around new people in new places, but she seemed right at home by the time I came to pick her up.
David is very flexible and expwrienced. I appreciated the time he took to get to know me and my dog, Pearl. He sent reassuring updates and made the entire vacation experience easier. I highly recommend David and will use him again.
David is such a great guy and my little buddy had a blast playing in his huge yard and barking at the chickens. David is compassionate, loving and does not let the dogs sit around all day. 2 long walks and lots of playtime both inside and out. Highly recommend David!
This was the first time we ever left our dogs (Shepherd and Collie) with somebody they didn't know, so it was very nerve-wracking. David did a great job with them! He sent us pictures and they looked like they were having a blast. They loved the big yard and hanging out with other dogs. Would definitely use David again!
I had the pleasure of having David watch our Golden. I cannot tell you how impressed I was with him. You could clearly tell that he loves these dogs with every ounce of his heart! I received regular updates/pics of my baby girl, and she was so happy in every picture. I would highly recommend David, and if I could rate the experience over a 5..... I would probably have to rate this well over 100 :). We will be back for sure!!!
David was great. He was very flexible on drop off and pick up time which was helpful when we ran into bad traffic. Our pup got 3 walks a day and with the photo updates David sent, we were never worried about how much fun she was having. She had a great time and I would recommend David to anyone who wants a worry free, fun, safe and friendly environment for their dog. 5+ stars
Great dog vacay as always!
Thank you David! Our pup had a great sleepover. David is kind and took excellent care of our little dog. Cute pictures updates during the stay too. We'll be back for sure, thanks again David.
David was wonderful with Atlas, he came home all played out (really hard to do with a 6 month old lab)! We loved the pictures David sent us as well. We will definitely use David again.
David was so great! He was easy to work with and sent us pics of our puppy the whole time so we could see him playing with the other dogs. He went above and beyond to help our puppy feel settled and happy. We are so appreciative! David makes us feel confident in leaving him.
Our experience with David was very positive. He has the perfect set-up for two very energetic labs. His backyard was a huge bonus- it is spacious and fenced- offering freedom and safety at the same time. I would definitely request David again.
David was quick to respond to all communication. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and trustworthy. My dog appeared to love the vacay. It's clear the pack respects David and in return he respects their limitations without judgment. WILL use David again.
Felt very good about leaving my dog and loved getting the picture updates! Would definitely use again!
David is wonderful. Our dog usually barks himself hoarse but he came back happy and having his voice. David sent us pictures and updates daily. He keeps the dogs active on walks and playing in the backyard; which was great for Maverick. We will definately use David on our next trip with pets.
David provides an amazing service. The biggest problem is your dog will not want to come home!
This was our first DogVacay and it was a great experience. David was fantastic to work with and shared updates with us on how our doggie was doing. When we dropped her off she went straight in the house with no reservations which calmed our nerves. She really seemed to enjoy herself. Would highly recommend David!
David has great reviews for good reason! He was very quick to respond with setting things up and with communication while he had our dog. He seems to genuinely care about dogs and was very patient with our nervous pup. It's fun to get pictures to see how our little guy was doing. David gives them lots of outside time and walks. We felt comfortable with him and will work with him again in the future.
My dogs are typically hesitant at new places, but that was not the case at all here. My pups were ready for a nice long snooze after the stay.
David was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. We were driving out of town and that was helpful. Everything went smoothly, we received a lot of cute photos. Will hire again!
David was great with Pepper Ann! I think it was good for her to have lots of other dogs with which to interact while we were on our 5-day trip. He was very sensitive to her shyness and socialization needs.
It's like a doggie dude ranch!
David was an outstanding host. Goliath, our 6 pound Yorkie, adapted very well with the other dogs. I would not hesitate to recommend David and his dog accommodation facilities and his personal care.
David was very easy and quick to communicate with, and kindly being flexible on drop off/pick up timing. He gives dogs a lot of freedom that I didn't have to provide my dog's leash! Even though he watches multiple dogs at a time, he provides individual attention very well that Coco got to sleep in his bed -sneaking into human friends' blanket is coco's favorite thing to do! I would definitely ask David again to watch Coco.
David has a great setup, I don't think my dog wanted to leave. He really seems to love dogs and gives them a great vacation.
David was great with our girl Jasmine and kept us up to date on all of their adventures. He sent us updates & pictures that helped put our minds at ease at leaving Jasmine for over a week. We will definitely be using him again!
Nero always has a great time when he stays with David. He leaves happy and exhausted from all the fun!
David was easy to work with. very helpful and understanding this was our first time using the service, and the first time the girls would be staying with someone that was not family and they had not met before. I enjoyed receiving the pictures of their vacay to assure me they were doing well and having fun. I was able to tell they were taken very good care of and had a lot of fun, because they come home and were excited to see us, but were very tired. I would definitely use the service again and especially David!
David is very easy to work with, answers questions, and there is no denying he loves dogs and looking after them. We had him watch our Saint Bernard over Memorial Day weekend - which was a busy weekend for David watching multiple dogs. I think everything went well, and that David provides a really good happy environment for all the pups he looks after. We felt good about that.

If your dog needs to be socialized around other dogs, this is a good fit for you.
David was fantastic! Scout had a great time! We will be leaving our dog with him again for a longer stay because of how well she did... We really loved how involved David gets with the dogs. Also, he has been especially helpful in working with us on pickup due to a new vacay location/ crazy flight schedules.

My dogs have stayed with David almost a dozen times now, and I couldn't be happier with his services. He's professional, reliable and treats them like his own. They come back happy and exhausted.
Our dog has separation anxiety, so we were a bit unsure how he'd respond to his short doggie vacation. I was so worried he would be a crying mess, but am happy to report he didn't seem miss us one bit. He had a really great time and came home utterly exhausted from all the playing and attention he received. I would highly recommend David to anyone in the area. He was flexible and accommodating and our dog really seemed to enjoy his company.
David could not have been nicer to our little Millie. It was obvious that he loved her and took such good care of her. We so appreciated his genuine affection and knew she was well cared for. This is someone who truly loves animals. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a great place for your dog to stay while you are away.
????????David took great care of our dog! I would definitely recommend him
David is always a great host for my dog!!
Great host for my pup!
David is wonderful, and our dog Dakota loves him. He took care really well of Dakota, our 3 years old black lab. David really understands dogs.
Always such an attentive sitter!
David was great! Cody was so happy and active the entire time!
We really appreciated the extra effort David took with Andy & Ava. Even when Ava was feeling a little under the weather. He even gave them a brushing so they looked absolutely beautiful when we picked them up.
My dogs love going to David's house, and we have absolutely no qualms about taking them there. The activity pics are great, and the dogs always come home tired and happy. Will definitely use David's services again, and happily recommend him.
Amos spent almost a week with David and came home exhausted, and calm. Grateful for a worry-free experience!! I will absolutely hire him in the future.
David was taking care of our dog Dakota and our dog had a awesome stay with him.
David was great with Ginger! She had a wonderful time and he was always willing to send pictures of walks, playing in the backyard, or just hanging out with the other dogs. I am a bit of a worry wart when it comes to leaving her for long periods of time, but David was very confident and reassuring that he could handle anything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great doggie sitter!
Love the pics, and love that my dogs come home tired and happy. David has the patience to deal with my (sometimes) disobedient puppy, as well as my velcro dog. We're very happy with his services!
David looked after Winston as if he were his own puppy, he even let him sleep on his bed! We received regular updates and always knew he was in the best hands while we were away. We'll definitely be using David again.
David was very easy to work with. My dog Cisco seemed very happy and well taken care of. David sent pictures of Cisco having fun to us which was very nice to see. We will definitely use him again.
David was great! Very responsive and sent lots of pictures of my pup! I will definitely use David in the future, and highly recommend him to others!
David was excellent with Lola. He sent us pictures during the day and she looked like she was having so much fun. She came home exhausted.
Hal and Ziggy had a great time with David! I highly recommend him.
David was very flexible with our constantly changing drop-off and pick-up times. He watched both of our puppies for 3 nights and sent pictures of them on walks and at the dog park. They seemed to be very happy and exhausted when we picked them up. We would definitely recommend David and plan to have him watch our dogs next time we leave.
Riley seemed happy and worn out after his weekend with David. David was so great about keeping us updated and sending us pics. We highly recommend him!
David was incredibly flexible and kindly picked my dog Mac up and dropped him off each day. During the time Mac was with David, I received pictures via text of Mac's adventures and at the end of the day it was clear that Mac was pooped from his grand adventures outside! I would happily use David again as a dog sitter and recommend him to anyone that needs someone to host their dog in Salt Lake City.
What an amazing dog sitter! I called him, "the dog whisperer." Boogie was having a lot of anxiety being away from home and away from me, but David was able to help with all of it! Boogie wanted to move in! Boogie was much calmer after staying with David and had no issues being away from me after his stay. It seems that David has a special knack for understanding dog speech and is able to help heal dogs of issues. I believe it! Boogie is a better dog after staying with David. I am so grateful for David. I highly recommend him. Thank you!
Chuck always has an amazing time with David. He loves to run with David and all of the other doggies! :)
David has been amazing when watching my dog Chuck. He has been very flexible with me and Chuck always comes home tired but happy! I love being able to see the photos he sends of Chuck's great adventures. I would very much recommend using David as your babysitter for your pet!!
Bowsky came home happy and tired. We were happy with the experience and think Bowsky feels the same way.
Hank had a great time with David and S'may. We were very grateful for the photographs of dog park trips, walks, and lots of nap time to balance it all off. Hank was even washed when we arrived to pick him up. Thanks David, this has been a wonderful experience for us, and I know Hank had an excellent time.
David is friendly and awesome. He kept us updated and sent pics of Riley having fun with all the other dogs. I am pretty sure Riley had a great time. David seemed to spoil him just as much as we tend to do at home :) Riley came home exhausted and happy! We hope to have David watch him again in the future.
Bailey had a great time staying with David. He went on three walks a day and I received regular updates and pictures.
David went above and beyond to make Frida feel comfortable in the new environment. I will definitely be sending to her to be watched by David again.
David did a great job. Gypsy enjoyed her stay and will be going on Vacay with David again in the near future!
Another great experience with David!
David was great. He updated me with daily pics, he exercised Yui to the bone (a husky needs that!), and she had plenty of friends to hang out with. Thanks David, I'm sure we'll be seeing you again soon!
David was very friendly and made me feel at ease with leaving my baby in his care. When I picked her up she was happy to have had a mini vacation.
David is a wonderful dog sitter, we feel confident that our dogs were loved and well looked after!
David did a great job with our dog Samson. We could tell he was well cared for and had fun. When we picked our dog up he acted normal and not worried or upset like some dogs do from a kennel boardering. David was easy to work with and we felt comfortable leaving Samson. We would have him take care of our dog again.
My dog, Diego, stayed with David over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. David was awesome with Diego and took amazing care of him. I could tell that he has a love for dogs and cares about making them have fun and feel comfortable. I'd definitely recommend David - he does an amazing job!
Mo had a good time and David sent a nice update about Mo. I would definitely use David again.
