About Zachary

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Board your pup in a loving home, not a kennel...

Vacation with peace of mind knowing your pooch will be safe-and-sound…and perhaps a bit overly loved, at Fur Babies Hotel. We specialize in free-range petsitting; no crates, cages, or kennels. There’s always lots of playing, snacking, and sunbathing, plus we go for daily urban hikes/walks around local parks and trails.

Our home is super dog-friendly, there’s a nice-size patio and yard, which is safely enclosed with a 6-foot fence all the way around the property. We have doggy door access so your pooch can be inside or outside whenever they please, fits up to a 40 pound pup, if your dog is too large to fit through it I am here all day to let them in and out whenever they want. We have two boys, 11 and 6, that love animals as much as we do and snuggling is strongly encouraged here, guest pups are perfectly welcome to sleep on the beds if they’re so inclined.

Both of us grew up with dogs and have pet-sitting experience from friends, family, neighbors, and my wife's grooming clients. My wife, Amber, has over 20 years in the industry as a professional pet stylist with training and certifications in many different subjects including first-aid, pet behavior, and basic dog training. Together we have fostered various breeds, including elderly dogs, pups just coming out of surgery, and those with health issues. I welcome detailed care instructions and/or special needs cases. I am a stay at home dad so I'm here most of the time, and if I have to step out, Amber will usually be on hand to dog-sit. Plus, your pup will have constant company with resident canines Trey (40-lb male Border Collie/Australian Shepherd, loves to play) and Bubba (16 year old male chihuahua, loves to sleep).

While on vacay at Fur Babies Hotel, your dog will be helping other, less-fortunate pups just by going for our daily walks and hikes. We use the “Walk for a Dog” app by wooftrax.com, which means that every mile your pup logs with us helps fund The Humane Society of Utah. Any dogs staying at Fur Babies Hotel will receive two 30 minute walks a day, if you would like this increased just let me know.

** Drop-off/Pickup hours: 8am-9pm (Must be booked at least 24 hours in advance)**
- Prices for Drop-off/Pickup vary depend on distance, I try to keep distances below 40 miles just for your pet's comfort, but don't be afraid to call and discuss your options with me.
- Boarding/Daycare prices vary as well depending on breed size, temperament, special needs, etc.
- It is always best to contact me first before booking so I can build a custom quote to fit you and your pet's needs.
- All dogs must be vaccinated and have a collar with tags upon arrival for our daily walks.
(If you do not have a leash you can send, we have spares available)
- If it is your first time booking with Fur Babies Hotel, please bring a copy of your pup's vaccinations and info on your preferred vet for our records when you come to drop off.

We do not require a Meet-n-Greet before accepting a first-time booking. But if you would like one, feel free to message us through our page and we'll work it out.

We do not hold tentative dates. You're welcome to text us to check availability, BUT!- ***\\ You must make a reservation through our DogVacay page to secure a booking for your dog, we will NOT make reservations outside of the website! //** If necessary, you have until a day before your trip to cancel for a full refund.

Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you soon!

I was very pleased with the care my puppies received. My reservation was last minute due to a family emergency. Zach was most accommodating and was quick to answer my questions. I was grateful they were well taken care of in my time of stress.
I would recommend Zach in a heartbeat! And of course use him over and over and over.
This was my first time leaving Domino with someone other than a relative which completely frightened me. Zach and his wife made me feel so comfortable from the beginning. They are very thorough when it comes to care instructions, I received daily pictures, and a little note for an update. Domino was shown so much love and had a great time. We definitely will be back. Thank you so much.
Zachary was very responsive to all my questions. He responded quickly to my text and kept me updated throughout the day.
I stumbled upon the advertisement for a pet sitter just in time! I was very excited when I called and spoke with Zach about their services because it sounded exactly like what I was looking for. I wanted our small chihuahua to be looked after and loved in a safe environment. I left our sweetheart with them for a week while away on vacation. I was pleased to receive daily updates including pictures! The service and care Zach and Amber provided was great and I won't hesitate to leave our dog with them in the future.
Our little dog had a happy, safe, loving home here while we were away on vacation. I had a peace of mind knowing he was with people who LOVE dogs!
Zach did such an amazing job! He watched tree of our dogs all at once over the Thanksgiving holiday, and we couldn't be happier with the care they received! We have a 13-15 year old lab and two 6 month old puppies who I am certain have Zach a run for his money! He sent us photos of them playing in the yard and enjoying their very first snow storm! One collar got chewed with all the excitement and Zach replaced it, no questions asked. All the dogs were extremely happy and clean and tired as can be after all that excitement! We will definitely be calling Zach again!!!
