About Kurt

Let me know if you need me to watch one dog at a time.

Otherwise, it’s very important that your dog gets along with other dogs. They will have each other and me to play with. I will give each dog individual love and attention. This is currently my primary job, so the dogs will be my focus throughout their stay.

I have a doggy door and an enclosed backyard where the dogs can play and explore. We’ll go for walks in the neighborhood. There's also the amazing Point Isabel Dog Park near by and I love to hike if that works for you and your pup.

Let me know if you have any questions. I know all doggies are unique. No one knows your dog like you do, so I will take your advice to heart.

I didn't post many pictures of the inside of my house. It's very neat, clean, and comfortable. About 1,000 sq ft.

I'd appreciate it if you signed a simple legal agreement.

We had the great experience with Kurt when we boarded our stubborn Shiba inu with him recently. Because of the nature of the breed, she is very royal and affectionate with us, but tends to be extremely suspicious and nervous with anyone else. However, surprisingly our dog seemed to be conformable to stay with Kurt. He was respectful to our somewhat unusual requests, and kept our dog safe and took care of her very well. He sent us photos of her while we were away. We already trust him with our dog, and hoping for the next opportunity. So happy to find such a great dog sitter with knowledge and skill to communicate with dogs, and adaptability to respond to our picky requests.

Kurt was a great host for Stella and we would not hesitate to have him host again in the future. Stella enjoyed the hikes in the nearby parklands.
Kurt was great with April who is a little bit skittish and shy with many things and people. She seemed to enjoy her experience and was less stressed. Kurt was kind and very understanding with her and flexible with our schedule.
Kurt helped my anxious dog to feel relaxed and happy. This is the first time I'd left her at someone else's house, so I was a bit nervous. Kurt has a gentle manner with dogs, and my dog Luna seemed very comfortable with him.

Kurt was extremely responsive to emails, and sent us updates and a photo of her. The inside of his house and the yard are very nice, and he enjoys taking dogs out for walks. I highly recommend him!

Kurt was able to watch my dog overnight on short notice and did a great job. My dog was relaxed and happy and the whole experience was easy.
Kurt was great with my dog Hank. Hank loves him, and this is a dog that doesn't get along with just anyone. Hank appreciated the quiet house and the fenced yard with doggy door. I appreciated Kurt's professionalism and how he learned as much as he could about Hank ahead of time so that the stay would progress smoothly. Great sitter.

Kurt was great, he takes a lot of care to get to know the dogs and their habits/ personalities, and has a gentle demeanor that my boys, I think, appreciated. He has a great, dog-friendly back yard but also took them on off-leash hikes which is great.
Kurt took my dog on several hikes and sent me pictures and put my mind at ease during my trip!
Thank you Kurt for taking such great care of our 11 year old Shiba Inu over the Labor Day weekend.

Shiba's are not your typical dog, but we knew Soba would be in good hands with you while we were out of town. We really appreciated the frequent updates to keep my wife and I informed how Soba was behaving. Hope that we can have Soba vacation again at Uncle Kurt's place in the future!

Many thanks again.

My husband & I are extremely picky about who to leave Bailey with. When our usual dog sitter was't available we panicked! I contacted multiple sitters & went on several "meet & greats" through Dogvacay & Rover. None of them felt right until I met Kurt.
Kurt only takes care of one dog at a time which worked out great for us since Bailey doesn't like company of other dogs. Kurt took a very special care of Bailey & listened to all the special requests I had. He sent us dailey updates with pictures. We will definitely use Kurt's services again.

Kurt was the perfect match for my dog, Minnow! Boarding one dog at a time is a rare set up and I'm so grateful he was on dogvacay.com!
Minnow is an active cattle dog and Kurt took her hiking. She obviously had a great time with Kurt while I was gone. I'd be happy to have Kurt host Minnow again in the future.

Kurt was very accommodating. He took the dog to fun parks and sent pictures. And was really nice to my kids at drop off and pick up. Thanks!!
Kurt was great! Very responsive and took good care of Diamond. He even sent us a picture of Diamond while she was with him. Thanks Kurt! Looking forward to seeing you soon.
We just completed our one week vacation and returned to find our lovable Yoshi content with Kurt's care and home. He made us feel very comfortable with a pet that is not always easy for us to deal with. Because this was our first DogVacay reservation, I feel extra lucky that we may have found a perfect sitter now on our first try! Kurt was exactly what I'd hoped I would find on this site.

Kurt was very dependable. He was able t pick up and drop off Coco. Coco seemed very comfortable with Kurt. He sent pictures and updates throughout her stay.
We left our dog Ducky with Kurt overnight and he was extremely responsive and accommodating, making us very comfortable as first time users of DogVacay. We will definitely be bringing our pup back to him again!
I can't say enough good things about Kurt. Not only did he take a last minute overnight booking for our pups, but he also took them hiking and to the dog park!! He sent us a bunch of awesome pictures from the day too. It is a difficult task to tire our 2 hyper and energetic girls but he succeeded! Thank you so much for taking such good care of them, much appreciated!!

Kurt has a lovely place and yard, and taught Bug how to use the dog door! I could tell Bug had a good time because he wasn't too anxious to come home!
Kurt is very nice and sent us some photos while he hosted our dog for the day. She seemed to enjoy her time there. I would definitely recommend his services.
